My new TV spot, The Write Stuff, launches this month. I plan on offering a parallel blog as well. I'm learning more about blogging, so it might appear with a different url; or it might be here; or both. If you are reading this and would like to appear on TV on The Write Stuff to talk about writing or related topics, please send me an email (lupusgnome@gmail.com). Or if you would like to contribute to the blog, or appear…

OK, I'll admit it - I'm confused. When I go to my own page and click on the nav for "BLOG" it takes me to the list of these posts that I create through 'posts'. When I try to edit the page called "BLOG" I get something totally different. Ah, well . . . Believing this will result in another "BLOG post," let me add what I think will be a current BLOG post. I have been promoting and writing,…

It's all on me, not you. But if you are a fan, and you want to help, hold me accountable. Feel free to send me an email (lupusgnome@hotmail.com), and ask if I finished my day's writing. My goal is to write an absolute minimum of 250 words/day this week (and the minimum target goes up each week). Yesterday I managed 495 words. If you drop me a line, I'll tell you how I did. If you hold me accountable at…

Hello, fans. Once again, I have good news, and I have bad news. First, the bad news. Book 3 sucks. I have re-written it 3 times, using two different approaches, and none of them work. Now, the good news. That process of re-writing and critically assessing finally led me back to where I began for this book. I will begin again, writing it as originally planned. The book will deal with the Travelers and their new home, Pairodice. I will…

Well, once again I missed my target for NaNoWriMo. I did get a little further on the next book, "Problems in Pairodice," the first of the sci-fi trilogy. Now I'm shopping for less fortunate families (we "adopted" a family at work), food to give to the food bank, and all the preps for our own family Christmas. An dealing with heavy rain and flooding in the Portland, OR, area; but our investment in a triple sump pump and superior drainage…

My reason, excuse or rationalization (take your pick) for not having written as planned has been (and still is) a major remodel of our family room. Not only has that impacted me, the author; it has also had a major impact on my editor, my wife. On the positive side, it's going well, and the end result should be awesome. On the flip side of that, everything from the family room and a downstairs storage area has been piled in…

Think of people around you as clients; some external, some internal and others that are in your personal relationships. Why? Well, when you think of others as your clients, you may find yourself treating them in a different manner - provided superior customer service, if you will. Paying external clients are the most obvious, so let's move on to others. Even those providing YOU with a service can be viewed as clients; you let them know what you need, when…
