I'm a full-time writer...now what?



That's right folks.  I've taken the plunge and become a full-time writer.  It's been a few weeks now and what I can tell you is scheduling is everything.

I'll attribute a bit of my slacking to the kids going back to school a week or so ago and all the madness that went with that.  I fell from my 3,000 words a day to like 3....
But now things have gotten back to normal and I've carved out a schedule that I plan to stick to.  I've got a basket of books to get out and no time to waste.  (my next meal depends on it)

On a bright note, as if Bookbub could read the stars, they finally approved the first book in my apocalyptic series "Countdown"
 for a run on Oct. 5th.  I have high hopes for that being that it's easily my best seller and the fifth and final novel will be out by then.

I'm really hoping this will break the series out and I can finally get that yacht and get to sailing like Hugh Howey lol.

I have to admit it's great to be able to write and not be worried about anything else.  The down side is you can quickly fill up writing time with things to do around the house.  My advice to anyone looking at going full-time is to plan your day just like you're still working.  If your schedule is 8-5 then write from 8-5 and don't end up changing light bulbs or checking off that to do list around the house.

More updates to come and I hope to blog more regularly now as I really can't make anymore excuses.  Until then, see you around.

All I can guarantee you is regular irregularity



It's been a while since I've spewed my half-baked dribble on here.  But I'm back...again...for the um....well I'm just back.  I've been working on getting a vlog going because I think the world is really yearning to see my lovely face.  Give me a few weeks and I'll have that running.  Besides, I think I can be more consistent getting a video up.  (Doubtful)



Happy new year by the way.  It's been that long since I've posted.  Let's see what else is new.  I'm sure I've published a few books here and there, I've started a basketball team and consumed a least 45 gallons of (insert random energy drink here).  Aside from that, I’ve kept it nice and boring.



Spring is here which for us Floridians means summer is here.  On a side not HBO’s fellowship program was a bust, this is why I’ll just keep up with the movie scripts and leave that TV writing to someone else.



If you haven’t checked it out I’d suggest you all go take a look at the serial #FML on amazon.  It’s a collaboration with two other authors and I think the episodes are coming along quite nicely. 



Anyway just wanted to quickly catch up.  Hopefully I can post something meaningful within the week.  I actually have some serious thoughts hiding behind the fog in my head, but I must get back to my word count for now.  Shoot me an email or send me an angry tweet.  Until then my friends fair well.

So yeah....

I had these lofty ambitions to do all this writing and then Murky Water happened.  That book was probably one of the most difficult books I've ever written and I can't tell you why.  The good news is I finished it and to those of you that haven't read it, you probably want to go ahead and do that.  :-)
 
I removed all of the counters for my books because I don't have the time to update that stuff and meet my writing goals.  So as the saying goes, something had to give.  I'm knee deep in The Doomsday Playbook part 4 at the moment and will probably be releasing between 1 and 2 books a month until the end of the year.  So all of my series readers be prepared for some horrifying conclusions.
 
On that note, back to writing.
