The Journal Post

 As one can clearly see, I've not completely harnessed the ability to put aside distractions. I suspect a full year is long enough to go without posting on this blog and I'm sure I've upset my followers -- all forty or so of them. It's probably time I posted another story of lessons learned during my childhood and adolescence, but I'll save that for another day as well.

What I want to post today is simply a sort of journal entry in an attempt to get back on track. Let's see, I'm still working on no less than seven different story ideas with seemingly no ability to finish one of them. The story ideas are still ranging from science fiction to fantasy. 

Perusing through the statistics for my blog, I've realized that my most popular (most viewed) posts were about typewriters in my small collection. Are that many people interested in old typewriters or are typewriter enthusiasts just more dedicated than others?

On another note, I recently attended a novel-writing workshop put on by a local author who has reached some level of success. In a two-hour workshop, I made some realizations and re-committed myself to getting my butt in the chair, narrowing down my writing interests to a single project at a time, and pursuing that project through to the end no matter how ridiculous it seems at the time.

So, this concludes my journal entry for now. Even though many will likely not understand this odd posting, it is a post that says "I'm going to put it out there no matter how silly I think it is."


  1. Yes, the typewriter community is both enthusiastic and persistent. :D

    1. I'm trying to reduce my number of hobbies and interests to a more controllable number. I've given up aquaponic gardening but add camping. Against my best efforts, I still keep adding typewriters to my collection, although I have limited my purchases to the occasional shopgoodwill bids.
