The struggle to find quality writing time continues. On a positive note, I've managed to get a couple of outlines done. Besides lack of time due to being locked up in a cubicle forty hours a week, its always been hard to pick from the multitude of ideas floating around in my head.

Not sure how many that may stumble upon this use Scrivener for their writing, but it is a great tool.

My journey continues...

Still juggling too many things. The writing is starting to happen, but need to get on a regular schedule.

Still Going Slow

A lot accomplished, but still behind. Submitted several magazine pieces. Really need to manage time better. Working on that!

Get to Writing!

           Well, here I go again. After many years of procrastinating on both my writing and this blog, I'm starting fresh. I usually link this to my really old blog on Blogspot and will continue to do so. I cleaned up the old and outdated stuff from here but will be leaving it on the other site.

I could write a book on procrastination when it comes to writing. I'm referring to the novel I've wanted to write for close to thirty years. I've managed to do a little freelance work and published two ebooks under a pen name, but my goal is to get my first novel published. It has always been a part time endevour since I work full time in costing and estimating for a company that builds offshore oilfield equipment. That precious time not working has been taken up by everything imaginable. I've come to the conclusion that if I don't rearrange my priorities, I will never publish a book. That is where I'm at. My plan is to have something written and properly edited by the end of 2015. Would love to hear from anyone in the same boat who is working full time and trying to write.

Always Something!

Since the last post, got a little (very little) writing done. Picked up a flu like head and chest infection from one of the generous folks at work who do not have the common sense to stay home when sick.

Just about caught up on a backload of reading, but still have a few books I should have read by now. Now that I'm healthy again, maybe I can back on track.
