writing

I did a thing… then got to do another thing!

So I wrote a thing and then I was invited to another thing.

Alive After Reading is a podcast where Tim talks to writers about writing and everything in between. I am not the only author on the show. He has interviewed some like Paul E Cooley, Sarah Johnson, and H.M. Gooden. Take a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

But to my weekly blog.

Throughout my time blogging, I have written about various topics from futurism to my theories about motivation and everything in between. I tend to talk about what I want, and I may repeat myself. I’m not much of a good blogger. I just write words on Sundays, some of them have a specific topic, the rest are ramblings. Like this one.

As a writer, my greatest strength is that I write lots. I don’t see it as I see others who write more. My wife kindly reminds me that more traditional published authors only write and publish a single novel per year, and I have already got that done, and its only May. I will have two more novels published before July. Plus, I have three more novels, another trilogy that will be published by the end of the summer.

This excites me as it is two years of work is coming to frustration. A lot of time was spent learning my process. How do I write a boatload of words, plus edit them without losing momentum? Also, how do I write every day, while juggling school, novels, second drafts, edits, proofreading, marketing, social media, my wife and my kids?

That is what took me two years to learn. Juggling my priorities to the best of my abilities. My solution is to keep my goals reasonable (my wife laughed at this line when I told her) and to lose the unneeded things in my life. This was video games, movies, and TV. The parts of my life I don’t need. I write instead.

If you want to get a goal done, then sacrifices must be made with an eye for priorities.

This journey is not something I can do alone. It takes support from many people for it to become a reality. The easiest way is to visit my Amazon Author Page and purchase one of my books. All of my books are available on Kindle Unlimited, and if you have a subscription, they are free. Help support me by reading my books. I do have a tip jar set up at Ko-Fe, where you can buy me a coffee. Or you can also visit me on Facebook. Your help and support are much appreciated.
