Stories: Real and Fictional


Moving Right Along...

Hi Everybody. 

I’ve missed a few posts, due to a writing assignment that got out of hand. I attempted to write my first murder mystery and developed a great deal of respect for the art form.  It took much longer than planned and I found myself lying awake nights trying to work out the intricacies.  This isn’t something that can just be cranked out.  It takes a keen mind.


I don’t consider myself very keen minded but I am persistent.  Despite having bitten off more than I could easily chew, I stuck with it, submitted an excerpt of what was rapidly becoming a novella, and continued the story to completion   The excerpt will appear in the VisionCon 2010 program book.  The entire tale is being posted in segments on the story section of this website.


What’s on the agenda for 2010?  Some lucrative work, I hope, and plenty of fun besides.  Like anyone else this time of year, I have plenty of ambition, no shortage of resolutions, and all manner of excitement for the year ahead.  Really, though, life’s what you make it, so it’s up to every one of us to go out and pursue our dreams.


Here’s hoping  your pursuit goes well as the year unfolds.
