2014, New Year, New Plan

Hey guys, as you have probably guessed, I still don’t have internet at my residence. I’m still working on that. I’ve got a plan, but it is going to take me another week or two, I think.


Anyways, I had planned on putting my mind back to weekly prompts, but I doubt that I’ll be able to keep up the daily prompt idea that I had.


I’m working extra hours each week at work, and I have an application in with the local sheriff’s department to become a dispatcher. This would nearly triple my take home amount and it would put me in a far more stable situation.


My father is 77 years old, and he’s not in the best of health, and due to the signifigant gap between real wages and the living wage I’m living in the house my parents own jointly while they’ve moved to another part of the country. When he goes across into the summerlands, it is a given that the house will be sold as quickly as possible. The doctor gave him a couple of years to live back in 2006, so legitamately he could go at any point in time.


Anyway, i should stop rambling, and get back to writing posts about writing.




So. There was an idea earlier in the last week

And, I’m not going to lie. It’s currently sitting in the drafts box, simply because I lost my train of thought on the topic, and I haven’t made it back to it yet.

My apologies. The Writing101 series of posts will start soon. Pretty much as soon as I get the hang of this whole working three jobs thing.

And, I’m also helping a writing friend get their stuff together to have an online platform, so check him out at  bradleyharriswrites.com !!

A new thing!

All right, I’ve been planning to add a new thing to the site. And as a 6 year NaNoWriMo participant, and winner of the last four. I think I can call myself a writer.

Though, I have been writing as far back as I can remember; and I was story-telling as far back as I’ve apparently been talking–according to my mother. And I know that one of the biggest things that most aspiring writers have as an obstacle is that they simply don’t know how to start.


I remember the fear of approaching each new story idea, and trying to figure out how to start. I’ll be covering that in a post at the start of the next week. It’ll be part of a new series on writing that I’m going to call Writing:101. It will cover things from tricks I use to get started, to things I do to keep going; and how not to be afraid of that big blank page either on the computer screen or in that notebook that you keep on the bedside table.


But on the other hand, I did work today, and since my allergies have arrived in full force, I’m a little brain dead at the moment. It also didn’t help that I woke up two hours before my alarm this morning, and the kittens decided that mommy wasn’t allowed to go back to sleep. -.-
I’ve been dosed up on Aleve-D trying to get rid of most of it, and resumed my Zyrtec taking a couple of days ago. I’ll be back to my normal, non snuffly self in no time. (by the way, I sound weird as hell. Even to myself. XD)
