The End of 2018...
My posts have been few in 2018, 'tis true.
I'm not a full time writer. I work a full time job. :o
Well OK, enough excuses. The real question is what have I been up to with my free cycles of time. Right now, as I'm writing, I have CBS News Sunday Morning playing in the background as they reflect back on 2018 - the many events, the faces of those who passed, the hope for tomorrow.
Tomorrow (in the general context) for me is grounded in work (really, what else?). My free cycles have been trying to get this 2nd novel out the door. How many editing passes is this now? This is getting painful (to me not you hehe).
The goal is pretty simple - pick any paragraph, or group of paragraphs, randomly from this book and read them out loud to (anyone). Will the words inspire? Will they intrigue you? Or will they be passed over as flat ramblings, verbose descriptions, background noise.
(Geez I hope not.)
I think I just completed (hopefully) my final pass. Now to my real editor.
I was so very close. I really did want to get this out for Christmas. Alas, realities of time and tribulation.
Maybe I've burned too many cycles, watched too many Christmas specials with my wife (lol). Then again, these dates are my own - no one else's. So I'll get there when I get there. (Soon though) I still have to get the cover artwork done as well. ;)
What's the new novel about? Well it is science-fiction, but I don't want to give it away just yet. No its not a continuation of "Of Days Gone By" - yes there always seems to be a fascination with sequels. This one will stand on its own. But I do hope you like it.
That all being said back to CBS Sunday. .Damn... 2018 was a strange year.
See you on the flip side after the ball drops. I'll try to post more in 2019 (we'll see about that) .
Happy New 2019!
