Relaunch – what is happening

Well, September is halfway through. What have I done? Well, it’s been hard. I”ve been working slowly, but have a workshop presentation which has taken my time. Additionally, I’ve been working on other multimedia projects, such as posting music and videos. The challenge has been working with the artist to get the images I need and want.

It’s quite frustrating that I have not been able to the rewriting I need to. With everything, it’s clearly difficult

I”ve decided that Thursday I will clearly spend some time on the rewrite.

Clearly having a plan would help. Yet I”m not consistent. I think it would be much easier if I were writing in a style that I was familiar with. “Show don’t tell” is one of the more difficult style to write in the first time. I never realized the importance of knowing what your style of writing is.

My original style was like playing a dungeons and dragons game. The more details the better. I thought the more the reader knows, the more they would be interested. But to focus on an audience of young adults, this style doesn’t work. So a different style is the key. Important to know, changing your style of writing can be a serious challenge. Needless to say a challenge that is worth it.

Relaunch August 2019

Relaunch Update

I can imagine for those following, you wondered what has been happening.

Not much. As you can imagine when you have a job that keeps you busy, it creates less time for the things you love to do or any serious projects you have going.

It is important as I am learning just to do something each day. The challenge though is to make sure what content you do post, it has value. So for me, posting content when I’m exhausted doesn’t make sense.

I’ve committed to working this week on the book and doing the rewrite and a little of all of the stories including the anthology. Add to the list blogging a little and making music.

My hope is that by doing a little of everything progress will continue vs not doing anything for a week. I am believing that working on one project producing some content is better than doing none.

SPECTRUM The Man of light

The Challenge of power

How does a superhero stay normal yet knowing deep down inside there is something bigger. How do you maintain your secrecy while trying to save and help those needing protection?

One day, lightning changed the life of this young boy. While sitting in the Church with his parents near a piano listening to the musician play while melodious Acappela words are sung by  the choir.

A severe storm with a supercell that reached into space. Lightning coming from the atmosphere struck the church. The choir never stopped during the storm. The sounds of the choir and the storm put the boy in a trance.

The charge from lightning ran through the steeple through the wiring to the power outlet near where Ulysses sat.

The light was so bright, the choir sang louder not realizing what was happening.

Imagine seeing an incredibly bright light while singing in the church.

Shortly thereafter, a choir member happened to notice Ullysses was unconscious.
