FREE book, THE DEACON, brought to you live from beautiful downtown Witch Well, Arizona.

THE DEACON is the title of my NANOWRIMO effort.

I will be posting it on this blog as I write. The first three or four days will be long because I have over 8000 words written already. Once we are caught up you will get my (hopefully) daily writings IN THE ROUGH for your perusal.

I beg you to comment. Plus or minus comments. Please try to make them constructive comments. Don’t worry about typos. We are looking at a story, a narrative, so your comments concerning plot, characters, events, actions, etc. are what I would appreciate.

I will post each days writing (on days I write) the next morning.

Tell you friends and enemies about this great FREE offer.

Be blessed and keep writing.

Birthdays and beyond

My last post was on the 30th of December, my birthday. My 72 birthday. Many was the time when I was told I would never live to tell about it, whatever it was. Here I am through no special power of my own, but by the Grace of God. Some would say blind stupid luck and there was a time I would have agreed with them. But, God is not blind, nor is He stupid, and He surely does not need to rely on luck.

In my years I have done and been many things. How about you? Did you stay in a rut? Or, did you live life to the fullest walking with God even when you thought it was your idea and your luck?

Anyhow, God has given me much. I always wanted to be a cowboy with horses and cows. He gave me that. I always wanted to be a story teller, some would say I talk to much, God gave me that. The greatest thing in my life, except for God and loved ones, is the privilege of seeing my books in print, being purchased, and sitting on my bookshelf.

Why do you write? What is your greatest joy? Tell the world about it, write.

A New Year, So What????

The new year is just around the corner. I will figuratively throw out the old calendar and hang the new. I have never seen much sense in the hullabaloo over the new year coming around again. Nowadays its even more ridiculous. I will not be throwing out my calendar because I can’t afford a new phone. Me and Google got the calendar all set up years ago and it just keeps going on. Just like the gift of Christmas.

There is no sense in spending many hours reflecting on the past when it is gone, over, done with. We must set out minds on our goals for tomorrow and the next day should the Good Lord allow us to live through them. We’re not talking about resolutions here, we are talking about sincere goals we are going to fight for with every ounce of our strength and to the last breath. Realistic goals with just a hint of stretching what has been done before. We need to be like Star Trek in many ways, we need to go where we have not gone through the routes we have gone through and then beyond.

Wake up. Take two aspirin and soak it. Make your goals and then CHARGE!

I have set my goals for the next six months and they are:

  1. Finish audiobook on State of Defense (awaiting Audible’s approval for the past three weeks.
  2. Finish audiobook on State of Threat (at the narrator’s”
  3. Finish three more books (last chapter on one, finish the second which is at 25%, and one brand as yet thunk up)
  4. finish audiobook on Gentle Rebellion (have just received the equipment to narrate myownself)
  5. Review two of my old books for errors and repair files (I am reading them on my new Kindle and finding errors hear and there)
  6. Be faithful to my Lord and enjoy the 73rd year he has given me (He has been very good to me for 72 years as of tomorrow)

May you all be blessed in the coming days in ways beyond your wildest imaginings.
