Another Member of the Gang - Intro

Greetings from Fort Worth Texas. I have been a part of this group for a while and can tell you they have all helped me in my quest for the best in publishing and promoting my works. I have two books in print: Sabbath's Room, a supernatural mystery, and Once a Brat, the story of my world travels with my army officer father from my birth in 1938 (yes, you read that correctly -- I'm really old!) until his (our) retirement in 1958. I will soon have another book out, this one about my three-year, five doctor struggle to find a diagnosis and treatment for my painful and baffling symptoms. I have other projects in the works and hope to have another novel out soon. I also do copy editing at reasonable rates and quick turn-around. I intend to be an active part of this blog, sharing my experiences in the wacky world of writing and publishing, with an occasional detour to a rant about world events. Supposed to keep this kind of brief, so if you would like more information about me or read excerpts from my books:

virtual book tour

Today is my first book tour via the web. I visited quite a few places which was sad. I bookmarked the blogs I like. I already had a reply.

I appreciate your comments. You are correct, no one, who has not experienced death, can understand it. Death of loved ones has been a trademark of my life. My mother passed away unexpectedly when I was 11. My father passed away after a ten-month battle with cancer in 2001. I've had two high school classmates pass away, a friend commit suicide, and lost all my aunts and uncles through the course of my 38 years. Each one of these people represented an eternal soul. The prevalence of death in my life has made me realize the importance of living a life of reconciliation and rescue.

Thanks for you comments, and your support by posting on the site. You will be in my prayers today.

Growing Pains

I have discovered some parallels between one of my hobbies (beading) and writing.

They are actually quite humorous to me. Right now, in regards to this hobby and being involved in Bead Artist Trading Cards, I feel ... paranoid/full of self-doubt and convinced I'm doing it wrong.

I feel the same way when I write (and then read at the writers' group) something racy or very different from anything else I've written. Especially when said writing is a pending novel.

Since this is just a sort of growing pains, if I'm going to get over it, I have to work through it. I know this, but it doesn't make it any easier. I don't know why/how the parallels between the two occurred to me today, but seeing as it is (at least) marginally writing-related, I thought I would share it.
