Starting my immunotherapy today!

It’s going to be a long, long day! So far this week I have written another children’s story for the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest, I will submit these stories soon after the critique group meeting this coming Thursday.

So far I have learning about how to post articles on Hubpages. It is an interesting site and I would like to learn more about it before I start to do anything with it. In my opinion there is somewhat of a learning curve with this. So today I will be looking at that site. I downloaded some books on Hubpages, so I will be looking at them,

I just got through taking the Benadryl and now it’s on to the gamma globulin! You see the cancer (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) I was diagnosed with damaged my immune system and so I have to undergo these periodic treatments to fully restore my immune system. It’s a long process but very well needed. Sometimes I have are reaction to the medicine. My immune system doesn’t like getting a kick in the ass, but it needs it!

Writing goals for today consist of posting here, writing some poetry, taking a look at the children’s stories and taking a peek at the sci-fi story! So I had better get moving on this. So until next time…William out!!

Good evening folks!

I hope that your day is going well! Mine sure is! I have been busy writing another Children’s story for the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest along with setting up my Hubpages account. At least that has been my focus these past few weeks, Yesterday I also looked at the plot points for my sci-fi story “A Change in Time!”.

It’s nice to comeback to an unfinished piece of work with fresh eyes. I made a few decisions about the story. You know the drill…what to keep, what to discard, what to change, what to leave alone…fret about this, don’t fret about that. Thats what I love about writing. You never know what is going to happen next.

In two weeks the Wellington critique group will meet at the Wellington library. I do plan on being there early so I can read my Children’s stories that I will submit to the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest. I believe that my stories are very good, but as I said before I would like some feedback before I submit them! To tell you the truth I think they are ready now, but I would like that feedback!

I have been checking out the Hubpages site. Once I’m done setting things up I will start posting articles (Hubs they are called) in the hopes of furthering my writing skills and make some money on the side while waiting for that publishing contract to come in the mail! The site is free to join so check it out! Well it’s been a pleasure writing to you guys, but I have other writing goals to attain, so until next time…William out!

It’s a very sad day for those people…

In Moore, Oklahoma. Pray for the survivors so that they may be given strength to carry on in the coming days, weeks, months and years ahead!

Good evening people!

I trust that you guys are having a wonderful weekend! I know I am! Just thought I would let you guys know that I didn’t attend the Boca Raton critique group meeting. Instead I opted to have dinner with the parents this past Thursday, I will make every effort to be at the Wellington meeting this June 6th, as that will be the last meeting for a couple of months, and I would like to have a couple of my Cheerios Spoonful of Stories submissions critiqued.

Basically I have been working on the children’s contest for the past few days, Sometimes I would do well and then there are times when that ugly writer’s block would rear it’s head and just like any pro athlete that has nagging injuries, I work through it! I haven’t forgotten my sci-fi novel, though it is somewhat on the back burner right now until the children’s contest is over. Boy it would be real nice if I won that!

I have been writing some poetry as well! I swore I would write at least a minimum of three a night , but that can be difficult if I was to write conventional poetry. Enter Haiku ideas! And that is how I achieve the poetry goals.

I’m still checking out Hubpages. I haven’t done anything with them yet until I know more about the taxes that I would need to pay. This would be both income and Social Security taxes. I want to do this right so I’m taking my time on that. And speaking of time…I need to get back to the other writing projects. So until next time…William out!

Hello everyone!

It is early morning at the time of this writing, I hope that you guys are doing well and writing often! This Thursday I will be attending the Boca Raton critique group meeting and I hope to get a chance to read my children’s story. I would like to get some feedback before I submit the story to the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest. Once I get the feedback I will incorporate the suggestions into the story and then submit the story. After that I will work on the next children’s story and submit that too!

These past few days I’ve been looking and learning about Hubpages.com. This a website that is comprised of a large community of writer’s writing about things they are passionate about and possibly getting paid for doing that via Google Adsense, and various different affiliate programs. This site was brought to my attention by a Mr. Rik Feeney who was the guest speaker at the Wellington critique group meeting. The ideas being is to find means of extra income or revenue while you’re waiting for that publishing contract to come in the mail.

I did a little research about Hubpages.com on Wikipedia and found that the site is ranked in the top 50 sites for traffic in the entire website world. Not bad if you want to earn a little cash from Google Adsense while writing about something you’ll feel passionate about. I’m learning how to setup a good profile page and shortly after that I will publish my first hub (article).

Still working on the sci-fi story as well. That is a one day at a time proposition, but that is coming along as well. I’m still putting together that poetry chapbook as well. I hope to have about one hundred of them soon. Poems that is!

It’s getting late now, or should I say earlier in the morning, so I’m going to have to go. So until next time…William out!

I have been working on my…

Cheerios Spoonful of Stories submission these past few days and I believe it’s ready to be submitted. Still though I would like a fresh set of eyes and ears to take a look at it before I submit I’d like to get someone else’s unbiased take and input on it. Which is why I think I will wait until after next weeks critique group meeting in Boca Raton to make my submission.

In the meantime I could start on another story and get it ready to be read as well. That way I could kill two birds with one stone! Yeah I think that’s what I will do! There really is no hurry to submit as I have until the end of July, and I would like to be able to submit the best work possible. So for right now my goals are to tweak the first story and get to work on the second!

Now I haven’t worked much on the sci-fi story as of late, but that is a good thing, because I can come back to that refreshed. Besides, “Star Trek: Into The Darkness” will be in theaters next week and maybe that will fuel the creative fires in me! And speaking of fueling the fires, I had better get back to writing! So until next time…William out!
