Writing Sideways


                                      Happy Thanksgiving!

After taking a break for Thanksgiving, I am ready to start writing again. I must admit, as much as I hate cold, rainy weather, it does make for great writing!

Thanksgiving went very well, and I was able to spend it with my mother in Alabama. This year she insisted on making dinner all by herself as she has done for many years. I always offer to come and do all the preparation, cooking and cleaning, but at 84 years old, she likes to do the fussing.

I am a very, very blessed person. I have a beautiful wife and five healthy and strong children. I have a good income, and I am still able to have Thanksgiving dinner with my mother. I know there are not too many of those left. The Lord showed me long ago that I must stop and smell the roses along life’s path. My greatest blessing of all is my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, nothing else would matter. Happy Thanksgiving!


A New Adventure

It’s been a pretty rough week here in Atlanta. Cold, wet and 42 degrees. Yuck. The only thing that is good about it is that I can write in the comfort of a warm house and a hot cup of coffee.

I have decided that I am going to write my next book in the open, right on this website. I am not sure if it has ever been done before, but what the heck… let’s see how it goes. You might be wondering why I would do that since my book could be so easily stolen. It really doesn’t matter to me if someone takes my idea or not. I have lots more!

So, with my wife’s lazy good for nothing cat at my side, I am off for a new adventure. If you would like to check out the books progress and learn how to write a book every step of the way, you can do it right here. Have a great day, and I will see you again soon.


      A Buck and a Quarter

It’s been a while since I finished my last book.  I have pretty much reached all my goals in writing, so now I am writing for the fun of it.  I wrote my first book so that my children and grandchildren could know me better, and so my mother could finally say that there was a published author in the family.

The book I am writing now is a book of valor and vengeance.  It’s the story of a group of good people who are trying to right a terrible wrong.  I am only in chapter one, and I really haven’t gotten into my storyline yet.  The great part about starting a new book is developing all the personalities of the main characters.

I really don’t get to work on my book every day, because I spend so much time writing on this website.  I would like to make time for writing, so you might need to remind me from time to time.  I will work on it some more this weekend, and I will let you know how it goes. Have a great weekend…
