Good evening people!

Today is Friday July 18th and the time is 7:38 pm. I hope that you guys will have a wonderful weekend. I will be working it but at least I still have a job. And that is most definitely a good thing.

One of my goals for tonight’s writing session, along with the goal of posting here, is to submit another children’s story to the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest. All I have to do is spiff things up and then submit.

It is getting toward the end of the contest, (last day to submit is the 31st) so if I want to ubmit this story and one more, then I had better get cracking. That is after I am done here of course.

Now I have been working on my plot points for my sci-fi novel “A Change in Time”. Hopefully then I will be able to write the scenes I need to write from that outline. It has been a while since I did any writing to that project since I have been busy doing the Cheerios contest. And that has been fun I must say. I will be looking forward to doing the contest next year for sure!

So what else do I say now? I did mention some of the goals that I will be doing. The other goals will be creating some more poems for the Poetry Chapbook. I do have of goal of publishing that as well. I think I will be going the ebook route on that. This is after I learn more about Direct Kindle Publishing. Same thing goes for learning how to do Createspace as well. It seems to be the most economical way to get published. That would be the easy part. The hard part may be the marketing end. We will see about that!

Another goal of mine is to do some reading. Reading is just as important as writing. You get to learn more about the writing world and it just is simply good for the soul. So with that in mind. Until next time…William out!

Good evening people…

I hope that your evening is going quite well. Mine sure is… I have been working on some children’s stories the past few weeks and today was/is no exception. I will be submitting another story tonight to the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest and then work on my final children’s story as the end of the contest is coming up…July 31st. It has been fun submitting these stories.

Mow of course my other writer goals will be to post here, write at least 3 poems, o some work on my sci-fi novel and do some reading of Rik Feeneys book “Writing Books For Fun, Fame, and Fortune.” I have said in the past that this book by Mr. Feeney is quite good and people who are considering writing a non=fiction book, just to keep some money coming in before that big contract comes, should check the book out. After some of the techniques that are taught to put a non-fiction book together could be used for fiction books as well.

Yeah speakigood thating of which I have not worked on the Sc-Fi story in a while, but that is a thing tool At least I will come back to it with a fresh mind. Started to get a little fuzzy in the mind regarding that situation. So I took a little time off from that project. Writing can be fun, great or absolute hell depending on the situation. But I always feel like I accomplished something when I achieve my goals. And so with that in mind I will go on to my other writing goals now…So until next time… William out!

Happy Fourth of July..

To all of my writer friends out there! I hope that you guys will have a wonderful and safe holiday. and I hope that amongst all the festivities that you will be able to get some writing done. At least what I plan to do,

As for me, my goal is to submit another children’s story to the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest within the next 48 hours and then work on a third story and submit that within a week. I would like to submit at least one story a week until the contest ends on July 31st.

I will be working on my sci-fi story as well as writing more poems for the poetry chapbook. that is pretty much what I will be doing’

Back to the Fourth of July festivities, please, while you are either watching the fireworks, cooking on the grill, relaxing in the backyard by yourself or with friends, please remember those members of the armed services who gave the ultimate sacrifice and remember those who were wounded in battle defending our country. Without them, we would not be celebrating our freedom today.

Well, I have to now, so until next time…William out!
