Too Long

So much for my resolve to post more often. I knew I had gone a while without posting, but I didn't realize I had gone this long.

I am still working on Old Wounds, and a short story, the original Guardian Angel, now re-titled Designated Angel. I am also doing the test scoring gig that I have done each of the last several summers. I am trying to fit my writing work in and around that schedule. I am also still investigating the possibility of creating a Patreon page.

Unfortunately, it has been difficult to find the motivation to get much done. My mother, who seemed to be in good health, died suddenly almost a month ago at age 86, and I am still adjusting to the realities of her being gone.

Among other things, I have to keep an eye on my father, widowed at 87 after more than 59 years of marriage, and I have new responsibilities around the house.

To sum it all up: I am trying to keep writing, but it is slow going.

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.
