It's been too long

I suddenly realized that it has been several months since I posted last. Clearly, I must make it a habit to post more often.

I have some ideas about how to expand my earnings with some passive income. People do it all the time; I understand there are people who make a living from blogging or posting Youtube videos and have no need of a full-time job. I don't know that I want to go that far, but I would like to do something that will bring in money as a supplement to what I can earn through writing and full-time work. I have a few ides in mind, including owning rental property and posting videos, but I know these things can be a crapshoot. Additionally, every time I try to do something, I get discouraged by slow progress, and don't stick with it. This is going to be my biggest hurdle.

As for the novel, that is stalled. I will admit, I have to go through my edits, but I don't seem to have any interest. I don't know what the problem is. I will be attending a social gathering next Sunday with a group of independently published Minnesota writers. I hope doing so will impel me to get my edits done and move on to the next stage of publishing. It might, at that; the last time I attended this get-together, I published two short stories right afterward.

Meanwhile, a very good friend and fellow writer, Craig Hansen, whom I have known since my college days in the 1980s, has suffered a stroke with brain bleeding. He is two years younger than me, only 48, which has me a bit rattled. 48 is young for a stroke. It shows how important it is to stay healthy in your later years.

That's all for now. I just wish I had more good news to report.

About me: I have been writing since the early 1980s, ever since discovering a passion for writing during my senior year in High School. My completed writings include novels, short stories, and newspaper articles. I have completed four novels in that time, and have partially completed two others. I have had little success in finding an agent or a publisher for any of my novels, and have recently taken my efforts online. During the years that I have been writing, I have also served my country as a member of the United States Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps. In the last five years, I have been deployed to Army bases in Iraq, Kansas, and Virginia.

Look for my novel Taylor Made, available from and taylor_made_banner.jpg
