March 2018 IWSG, Cheesecake Factory and More Writing on the Horizon

Hello everyone and as always thanks for stopping by. It’s that time again for the March 2018 IWSG brought to you by Alex J. Cavanaugh and his team of co-hosts Mary Aalgaard, Bish Denham, Jennifer Hawes, Diane Burton and Gwen Gardner. 

Be sure to stop by and share the love with them. 

This month’s question: How do you celebrate when you achieve a writing goal/ finish a story? 

Whatever it is I do will have to be outside the house as I have been inside for far too long getting to this milestone. But I generally do three things: Go to a good restaurant like the Cheesecake factory, walk around and get fresh air and sunshine, then see a movie. The trifecta of rewards for me. 

That being said, I am well on my way to leaving the workforce once again and working part-time out of the house and finishing a few books I have outlined. I gave myself six months from the start of the New Year and I’m well on my way. 

My Wall of Fame (this is what we sell). I've collected Michigan teams.

I had to re-enter the workforce and although I’m thankful for the people who hired me I absolutely despise the idea of working five days just to get two days off. And people were not designed to work 40 hours inside. At least I sit next to a window wall overlooking greenery.

February 2018 IWSG, E=MC2 and Speculative Fiction

Hello everyone. As always thanks for stopping by! 

The awesome co-hosts for the February 7 posting of the IWSG are Stephen Tremp, Pat Garcia, Angela Wooldridge, Victoria Marie Lees, and Madeline Mora-Summonte!

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜€Please be sure to stop by their blogs and show them some love! 

February 7 question - What do you love about the genre you write in most often? 

My genre is speculative fiction and I love combining science with the supernatural. Einstein’s famous equation E=MC2 simply, beautifully and eloquently states energy is equal to matter times the speed of light squared. 

Replicas to Scale. These were not big bombs and the uranium took up a fraction of the space.

Our minds struggle to frame just how immense this power is. Think of the two nuclear bombs dropped in WWII. Only 2 – 3 percent of the potential energy was released from 2 pounds of uranium-235.

I believe there are angelic and demonic beings. They exist naturally in a state of energy, or the E in E=MC2. Some have the authority and ability to cross over the equal sign in the equation and physically manifest themselves as matter in our world of seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and touching. 

Not just matter. Matter times the speed of light squared. Folks, this is a lot of power! And this would help explain much of the crazy stuff in our history and current events. This is what I love writing in my genre of speculative fiction. Which may not be so speculative after all.

January 2018 IWSG

Hello everyone. Hope you all had a fun and safe holiday season! It’s a brand new year and time for fresh start in many areas of your life you need or want. Sometimes you need to build a brand new spanking door from scratch from your own needs and wants for opportunity to come knocking. 

And let’s give it up for this month’s IWSG contributors and be sure to stop by and give them some love: Alex J. Cavanaugh, Tyrean Martinson, Ellen@TheCynicalSailor, Megan Morgan, Jennifer Lane and Rachna Chhabria

What steps have you taken or plan to take to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing? 

I’ve actually devised such a daring and dastardly plan. I have a series of short stories outlined. I think they are all winners and many have to do with how we react to visitations from our intergalactic neighbors. There is even a lot of humor in some of the stories. 

Then there is the MG / YA series I’ve been working on set to begin in the year 2099. Here is the tagline (from the year 2099): 

“We’ve spent the past 100 years searching the nighttime skies for habitable planets and signs of intelligent life; but they found us first.” 

I’ve been nickel and diming my way through this and it won’t take much to fill it out and complete the first of the five books of the series.
