Finally finished the 1st computer-draft of the trilogy I've been trying to get done. Now I get another book started, and editing and fixing this trilogy (and another one already 1st-drafted), and there's another book I've done a few chapters of (plus sixxing, of course!). Busy!
I finally broke out of my laziness and am writing another off-the-beaten-path how to blog article. I also intend to start penning more MMA articles, but not threadbare UFC previews and recaps that anyone can do. I was a syndicated analyst for Bleacher Report until its administration began catering to dime-a-dozen hacks. Consequently, the magazine dummied itself down, so I pulled down my articles and left.
My forte is analyzing the nuts and bolts of MMA's big picture and pondering creative ways to improve the sport. There's a lot more to mixed Martial Arts than the loud, obnoxious, and over exposed UFC and its byproducts.
I am thinking of what next to write for 6S. Maybe a story of a secret love affair. I am editing a writing sample for Textbroker.com (Sorry, am I allowed to advertize this? I apologize if I am not allowed) In my microsoft word folder working on next article. And lastly, nothing in my notebook. And all the while I am most interested in reading my book. Go Figure.
I have three pieces of writing minimized on my computer right now...
The first is a short story to submit to Writer's Digest monthly 'Your Story' contest, it's a bit edgy so I think I'll have to submit a censored version to the magazine (even though I was originally writing it for them...).
The next is a poem that's been being really difficult, but will pay off when I finally do finish it.
The third is my daily journal I keep on my computer (I used to keep a real journal, but I was always too lazy to handwrite all of my thoughts down...), this daily journal is where I write at least one 6 a day. Not all of them are worth being posted on here, but the ones that are worth it, I post.
And I'm flirting with ideas for 3 novels right now, trying to decide which one I want to write as my first novel. If any novelists on here have advice about starting a novel, please advise me, because I am completely clueless.
