Where I am Now
I haven't blogged in a long time. I didn't feel the need. I'm not the kind of person who writes or talks for the sake of talking. I've been working on Part Two of Earth Rising the fourth book in my Deovolante Space Opera series. I won't publish Earth Rising until all three parts are finished. This book takes place on Earth and Eloise Bright and Mur Ray are back. They are trying to help out the Earth but find there are two many factions not satisfied with events on Earth, including Earth. And it is too close to current events on Earth which makes me uncomfortable. I've been reading a lot of books that inform what I write. Thanks for being Late by Tom Friedman, American After Meritocracy by Chris Evans, Whiplash -- How to Survive Our Faster Future by Joi Ito, Return of the Rishi by Deepak Chopra. And I'm currently reading Drift by Rachel Maddox and Bowling Alone by Robert Putnam. All these make me reflect on where I am now and what I am doing and where I am going. I work all of these into my science fiction novels because, you see, I'm working through stuff in general when I write. Creativity is so important for all of us. It helps us work through stuff. In order to grow and develop creativity, it's necessary to be creative everyday. Creativity feeds itself. For me, once I'm in the creative groove, my brain keeps coming up with more and more stuff. Some of it pretty far out. So I keep writing. Get out there and be creative!
I'm a serious writer, meaning I have a regular daily writing habit, and I'm interested in sharing my work through publication. My favorite literary form is the novel. I write to entertain myself and my readers.
