Life is a long road.


Hi there,

I thought I had better keep anyone interested in the progress of the fourth book in the Col Sec series, Retribution.

I’ve been working hard on it for a few months now and I’m glad to say it’s coming along nicely, in fact it’s almost completed. It is slightly behind the schedule I had set for myself but this is due to some personal issues that I’ve had to deal with over the past few months also. Changes are coming and I have had to meet them head on as well as dealing with some inner demons that have caused me to face up to certain realities. Outwardly everything seems to be firing on all cylinders but beneath it all things have begun to fall apart.

Life is a long road and on the journey we have to deal with things and events as we meet them. The trick is not to allow the negatives to over power the positives. I always marvel at those who skate through life as if nothing is too much trouble and seem to have an endless supply of good luck. I have often remarked that if it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. That is a bit blase I know and no one knows better than me that you have no idea what troubles others face in their daily lives, just because they seem to live a charmed life does not mean it is. Everyone has their own demons to face and battle and I’m not about to judge others as I don’t want them to judge me.

I’m not sure that any of this makes sense but seeing as this blog was set up originally to share a few of my ramblings I thought I’d share this one. The other reason I started to blog is to promote my writings and so back to business. I hope to have Retribution ready for publication very soon, I’m in the middle of a major scene close to the end of the story, I’m desperately trying not to give any spoilers away here, as soon as that is completed and a few loose ends tied off Kurt and the gang will be with you. I just hope you enjoy what I’ve done.

See you soon

Jan.

 

Writers Block


Hi there,

while I’ve been waiting for my re-working of Ronin to be edited I’ve started a new story and hopefully this will generate into ¬†another series, but here’s the thing. Writers block has struck again, I have a basic idea of what I want, the outline is almost complete but getting it to manifest onto the computer is becoming almost impossible. I sit down to write and nothing comes and its really frustrating.

I want to write something of value and not just for the sake of seeing words appear before me, which is basically what I’m doing here, trying to stimulate the creative flow.

This has happened before and its usually triggered by something and once I’ve recognised what that trigger was I can address the problem and I’ll be able to continue with the story.

Hope its soon this is really getting me down,

see you soon,

Jan.
