Interesting Article For Self Published Authors

A bad review….

.....doesn't mean you didn't tell a good story! On the author pages I belong to on social media, I see comments from authors distraught that someone gave their writing a negative review.

Reflect On The Past To Move To The Future

And because I haven't been taking care of my health, along with external stressors, it is getting shorter.  I have had, on average, a good life. Sometimes fantastic, other... Continue Reading →

Well, I Woke Up This Morning

Short Story Scribe

Not sure how I feel about it. I know yesterday I wrote, If I wake in the morning, I will attempt to endeavor for a better life. I will get back to work on my new novel, The Damaged and Broken, with an even better understanding of both.”

Why I Write Of The Damaged And Broken

Until a few years ago, I was a motivated and positive person. Even as life continued to beat my ass to the ground, I genuinely believed no matter the situation, that dedication, perseverance and hard work would yield some type of positive result. I have come to understand that there is no greater cruelty than hope and... Continue Reading →

Omitted Section Spotlighting Alzheimer’s

The following is a scene I had left out from "Tortured and Tormented - creating a school shooter." It was omitted because I ended up taking out the grandmother role in the final text. Next I had intended to use it in, "Is Suicide Painless."  It would have taken place when the narrator was telling Sunny about his... Continue Reading →

Generational Pessimism Of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton PA

Even after being away from Northeastern Pennsylvania's scarred mine fields for several years, I am sometimes still amazed by the genuine joy for life people here in South Florida have compared to the those back home. It is an attitude and outlook I try hard to mimic, but it can be difficult when raised in... Continue Reading →
