A Sailor's Love
As I expected, my book "A Sailor's Love" has been snapped up now it is free on Draft2Digital, what a shame nobody was willing to pay me for working on it for over a year.
The Goodman revival
I am pleased to see that one of the DVD's I ordered https://www.eden.co.uk/shop/songs-in-the-key-of-happy-4460609.html has arrived. The other one is coming from America as it's not available in the UK.
The group has an interesting history as Tanya Goodman is the daughter of Rusty Goodman from the original group, The Happy Goodmans.
Today, I face the same demon I faced several years ago. The demon is depression and he keeps dragging me down with doubt.
Several years ago, while writing the Chronicles of Mark Johnson, I hit a dark week and was prepared to kill my hero to appease the darkness in my soul; I got talked out of it by some close friends who were fans of the series, so I wrote a darker Mark for the second book (shown here).
He was still alive but his soul had been turned into an evil man's soul through betrayal.
I face a similar situation tonight, I have several stories ongoing on Disqus that I could end in a gruesome manner. At the time of Wharfemere Finale, I sat staring at the blank screen for days as if something was blocking me from writing the end of Mark Johnson, not that it mattered as nobody has read the book since I wrote it.
High winds and rain
This is an apt tune for the UK today as high winds and rain lash the country again.
I am glad all our furry friends are safe in the house today.
I finally get seen on Amazon UK
For the first time in my eight years on Amazon UK, my ratings have risen more than on Amazon.com.
I have still to crack the Golden egg - Canada.
Peace is better than war.
While my life could be viewed as living in a Christian way, I do not profess to have made the decision to live as a Christian;I am a man of peace, if this is the Christian way then I am a Christian.
A need for calm
One of the many reasons I have not been able to write a lot in the last two years is the amount of distractions my life has had with endless appointments and interviews.
To write, I need a calm mind and my mind has been anything but that in the last two years.
So many tabs are open.
Somebody posted an image on Facebook some time ago, the message said "A writer's mind is like a laptop with all the tabs running."
There has never been more true written, even though I don't do a lot of writing, I have many ideas for stories that end up being written.
Ten years after.
When I started my blog a decade ago I used to write three or four blogs a day, now I find it hard to do two or three.
That is why I said a few days ago that one post would be my last post
I sit in my room looking out of my window like the James Stewart character in the film Rear Window, as I watch the tracks of the planes crisscrossing the sky I do not feel jealous that I cannot travel these days.
I put this down to having flown to Canada twice, and despite having a wandering soul, I never thought of travel beyond the UK as there is a lot here I would have liked to have seen.
