Quote of the Day

The Quiet Hours

In the quiet hours of the morning when dawn is starting its gradual ascend to nudge forth the day, is when my creative mind gets busy.  This is when story ideas peek through my dream state and present themselves to me.  This former non-morning person has learned to welcome these intrusions like a loyal friend.

I have a sneaky suspicion that I will be fully occupied this year between work, writing projects and life in general and plan to fully embrace it.  I hope I'm not wrong.

Embrace your passions everyone, make time for them, and enjoy them.  Life is short.  Live it the way you want to and make every second count.

Good Sunday to you all!

Exciting News - Regular Contributor Invitation to The Story Shack!


I am bursting with news at this moment.  Today I was offered an invitation by The Story Shack's editor, Martin Hooijmans, to take a spot on the site as one of their regular contributors!

You see, this year, The Story Shack will be changing their format slightly offering only 2-3 stories per week, which will allow longer face time for each story and more opportunities for exposure to different social networks.  So what this means is, starting in April, I will be bringing you a new story every month. This is an exciting endeavor for me.  Even though this is a non-paying assignment, it is rich with opportunity, as it will provide me with more exposure, adherence to writing deadlines, and the potential for future growth.

I am extremely grateful and thankful to Martin and hope that I can continue to provide you with some entertaining quality stories.
