Well….A bit of a long story but when you drive an old car you learn to keep a tool box in the trunk! Also, if I say so, Midnight in Paris is a pretty good flick (I may be partial to the character)! Not that my say has any so. I hope everyone had a great Holiday and are excited about the new year! 2012! Pending the cataclysmic catastrophes, I will be dropping at least three novels in addition to two or three novellas! Much love! This week I might be posting on the blog. I’m feeling very motivated! Stay hungry!
I feel like writing a crazy story story and posting it. I probably shouldn’t. Sometimes my crazy stories stories are just too crazy to post. And I dont want to appear too crazy, yet. I am just happy reading the last edit of Dimensia! Very happy! In-fact, its a bit surreal. In that, its done! It’s done! Its been a roller coaster of a ride. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks….Until again.
Well, its a bit of a known fact that everyone likes to gamble. Not to mention, I am Native. Anyone want to buy an ipad? j/k. Happy Holidays! Just received last read from last editor, Daniel. Will be posting Dimensia in January! As well as two other projects shortly thereafter. At this point I’m all in!
Update on the business madness….I’m flying solo. Not desperate to become rich and famous. Or, care about integrity. (In addition to ten-twenty other factors.) This may sound crazy I guess, if this is how crazy sounds? But I was entertaining such conversations, until it was no longer entertaining. Too MUCH! I’ll just keep writing and everything will be okay. I tell-ya, all those voices can make anyone go crazy. So, I’ll let you be the judge…
Besides, this isn’t the middle or the end. This is only the beginning! I assure you the best is yet to come!!
So, a while back a frail older woman approached myself, a friend, and wife. We were momentarily parked, sitting in the car, debating something or other. Well, this little older lady appeared, knocking on my window; apparent panicked. The first thought in my mind was: ‘Is this really happening?’ I might have said, ‘are you guys seeing this?’ (I thought or said neither. Placement for shock value.) It was a small side street, poorly lit, on the late side. At first it was a bit out of the ordinary I must admit. However, as moments developed, it was obvious she was lost and in need of directions. Well, her English wasn’t the best, so after about five minutes, not-to-mention her almost getting side swiped by a passing motorists; it was clear. We would have to drive her wherever it is she was looking for. Thinking what if this were my Grandma? Or, that she might be senile or suffering from amnesia.
“Do you want us to drive you?” I ask, the wife commenting, the friend also commenting. She smiles and shakes her head yes. Well, my wife doesn’t really know how to drive my car, and my friend doesn’t have a license or if he does, doesn’t have insurance. So, with little thought we decide that my wife would drive her car. As my friend hopes out, my wife does as well. As the wife heads toward her car, my friend returns as he looks at me befallen with a look ofdisbelief.
“Welcome to my world,” I voice as he smiles.
“I was just about to say that,”he replies. Pushing forward: Well, across town (LA), fifteen minutes later we arrive at our destination. Well, the woman was grateful and appreciative. She took down my wife’s phone number and address. Well, this was a couple months back now. Today we just received a Christmas card with a check for $50.00 enclosed! Soo….I will stick with my philosophy to continue to help others! It hasn’t failed me yet. It may not be immediate, it may not always be from the person you help, but what goes around does indeed come around. I cant wait drop these books! If nothing else to move onto my other books! Much love!
Then again, it could be Saturday – jk. So, as to an update which I feel is a bit over due. I might or might not be meeting with editor of second project today! If not, at some point this week hopefully. As to the first project, as of early last week the final read by second editor was underway and half way through the manuscript. So, I plan on dropping at least one of these two in the first week of January, perhaps both? Depending on how much I can accomplish seeing as they are out of my hands for the most part. So . . . very exciting. Also very exciting, the new projects! I have two non fiction pieces…One currently at 40-50k words (a coming of age novel/half-way completed). Another, fell into my lap a couple weeks ago, but is a period piece in nature. And in between these two novels… I have a dark comedy. Novella. Which is the latest greatest etc. So, as to this project..its more of a current, awesome – hilarious story (hopefully will drop mid-late January)! With a world view driven narrative. For those…well, those that might conceptualize me as a person or a writer. (Dimensia was written at age 23.) To the beyond! Until again. Much-love. Thank-you for your patience.
