Energy renewed!

Hello world!

I’m back and with some renewed energy. It has been about a month since I had to almost completely ignore this blog of mine, and I have missed it. Life wasn’t (and indeed ISn’t) boring, as you could see in my previous posts I was away from home, working in Seattle and had to juggle more than one major task. Not to say I am not busy these days… But where I had to do my “day job” during the day as well as the evenings (leaving scarce time to write) I can now at least use the evenings to work on my writing.

The blog will be back…

My apologies for this hiatus… my day job is demanding on any given day, but I am now starting something new (which is fun in its on way), and I’m starting it away from home. I cannot allocate time to the blog in the next week or so (Not if I want to make any progress with my novel at least…), so please bear with me and check back here for updates.

A Friday Tweet on the blog

Like I wrote last Friday, I’m having a bit of an overload at work and together with writing the novel it leaves me no time for Friday treats for the time being. I can tell you that chapter 5 is completed and I am planing to complete at least two chapters a week until I complete my first draft.
I am not got to send it to anyone for editing before I complete the draft though. I am going to send it to a friend of mine who volunteered to help me with some background work. I need his valued input to keep me honest in a way. It won’t have anything to do with grammar or any aspect of the writing skill. More to do with credibility of characters and behaviors. I won’t go into the details but I’m excited to hear how far off the mark I was or how near…

I will have something for you on Tuesday or even possibly Monday. Until then…

The Heat, The Mavs and The hook

Ok, I admit it. I can’t get away from the NBA finals and completely dedicate myself to writing. There. I said it. I am writing during time-outs, stoppages and commercial breaks so if I don’t sound completely coherent, I got an excuse. That being said, I would like to share something. Continue reading

The state of the union – 5/31/2011

I know it’s quite a pretentious title for a simple update post but it sure feels good and that’s what I’m all about here. Feeling good.

I am joining some new and interesting forums, groups and with every new one, new insights are visible. Pink Floyd might have referred to that with “The Wall“, although I guess it could apply to so many other things. For me, it is the shedding of layers from over my eyes and seeing everything there is to see. Continue reading

Friday’s treat – Fifth Wheel

This Friday treat is brought to you on Thursday as tomorrow I start my weekend 🙂

A couple of updates:

  • My short story “April’s Full Day” should soon be available on Amazon for Kindle, as well as a print on demand (more expensive) book.
  • If you’d like to read a nice interview I gave, you can read it here –

(Temporarily) Out with the old and In with the new

I feel like a character in a book. To be more specific, I feel like a hero on his journey!

How come? well, I look at the past few months and before, and I notice that my own story has some key elements from the “Hero’s journey“. Continue reading
