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…

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…

(If you haven't been aware of or supporting Small Business Saturday/Shop Small, be sure to get on board next Thanksgiving Saturday! The small businesses in our communities give us a lot, often operating on very thin margins. We want to help them survive and thrive!) I…

For the past two years I have successfully completed writing 50,000 words or more during the month of November, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). That has been the genesis for my first two novels, "Once There Were Dragons" and "There Used to be Magic." I had planned to complete NaNoWriMo successfully this year, as the core of book four if I had finished writing book three before November came, or as the way to complete book three (Problems in Pairodice)…

As many of you may know, my second book, "There Used To Be Magic," came out in July, four months earlier than originally planned, just a smidgeon later than targeted (I missed my intended June deadline). It was out in time for the NW Book Festival, though. And so far, fan response has been wonderful. At least one person did have a "glitchy" spot or two, where they had to work to figure out what I had written because the…

My next "appearance" will be on talk radio, KUIK 1360 AM, "The Voice of Washington County." This interview will not be about my books, however. We will be speaking about speaking. More precisely, I will be telling people about an upcoming workshop on humor. That workshop will be hosted by Daylighters, a local Toastmasters International club, on 8/27/2014, 6:40 - 8:00 a.m., St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, 12405 SW Butner Rd, Beaverton, OR. Refreshments will be provided, and the entire thing…
