These last few weeks have been crazy and I'm not just talking about personally.  We have flooding along the Mississippi, volcanoes in Iceland, tornadoes in the heartland, and unfulfilled rapture predictions of May 21st.  Holy cow!  
Amongst that chaos I have tried to remain focused upon my writing and not get distracted by too much nightly news.  The focus has paid off and I was able to complete "The Harvesters" last night.  I have gone through it multiple times and will do so once again tonight.  If I feel it is ready I will be sending it off to Tor.com for their evaluation and hopefully they will see fit to give it a few pages in their magazine.  Unfortunately, it will take months to find out what they think, but in my opinion it will be worth the wait (even if they say it's the worst piece of trash they ever read).
Just thought I would keep up the blog and keep you all up to date.  Now it's time to get back to finishing the novel.  I think I need more hours in the day.  Peace.
 
 
Alright, I have some good news today.  I have finished my rough draft for "The Shield of Algaron."  35 chapters, 200 pages, and 67,000 words down on paper right now.  I am hoping to add about 50,ooo more words in the rewrite as I add more description and dialogue. 
It's always exciting when a major step is complete.  Usually I celebrate a chapter being finished, but today I can celebrate the book (in essence) being complete.  I think I will have a drink tonight to celebrate.
Hope this finds everyone well.  Enjoy today, for tomorrow is but a shadow of possibility that may not be realized.  Cheers.
 
 
Hello people, hope your day is going swimmingly.  I have been very busy this week taking care of insurance issues in regards to my home and vehicles.  That darn storm we had a few days back damaged our property fairly well and looks like we might need a new roof, siding, and some repairs to our vehicles.  Thank goodness for insurance.

In regards to writing, I feel that this week has been very productive.  I am down to the final two chapters of my book (rough draft).  Not too bad considering that if I am lucky I get an hour or two of writing in a day (but that rarely happens).  I have also been working on three short stories, The Harvesters, Soul Chasers, and a title less work.  The Harvesters is drafted out and needs some tuning, Soul Chasers is about half way done, and my third is in the beginning stages.  I hate to jump around from project to project, but I find when I lack motivation on one, that I can flow well on another.

I also wanted to take a moment to advertise a great website for any budding authors out there.  www.mythicscribes.com is a great site with a great community.  I encourage all to become members.  Thats all for today.  Hope this finds you all in great spirits.  See ya!!
