Changes

Okay, if you've followed me for a while, you know I often make changes. I've changed the theme of my website several times. I've changed the colors and headers. I've even changed domain names in the past.  A few of you were around when I wrote only non-fiction. (Until I found my happy place.) So … Continue reading Changes

Writing Lessons Learned from the Work of Dr. King | Story Empire

Today in America is a national holiday, Martin Luther King Day.  Sadly, I remember the day this civil rights leader was gunned down by an assassin in April, 1968. I was too young at the time to know about the importance of his work, but when I heard the news flash on TV, I knew … Continue reading Writing Lessons Learned from the Work of Dr. King | Story Empire

New Year, New Beginnings

New beginnings. Okay, I probably say that this time every year. But I always look at January 1 as a time to start over. To put aside our perceived failures and move forward to achieve our plans and dreams. As you know from my last post, I didn’t accomplish all that I planned last year. … Continue reading New Year, New Beginnings

The Year That Wasn’t… The Year That Was

I had high hopes for this year. After publishing my first novel, a novella, and contributing to three anthologies in 2016, this year could only get better. Right? Wrong! I thought I would finish the first draft of my novel, Unknown Reasons, by March at the latest. Then came April, May, June. The clock kept … Continue reading The Year That Wasn’t… The Year That Was

Updates, Links, and More

Last Saturday, I realized I didn't do my Friday post. It was an incredibly busy week at my day job and as a co-worker said, "This week has been six weeks long." Wish I could offer that as an excuse, but the truth is simple. I forgot! Things have been a little calmer this week. … Continue reading Updates, Links, and More

Finishing Strong, New Release, and Autumn Equinox

It's been another busy week around the Hall household, but I'm happy to say it's been an exciting one. Not only did AIW Press release the anthology, Quantum Wanderlust, but I finished the first draft of Unknown Reasons on Tuesday night. As with most of my writing projects, it took me longer than anticipated to … Continue reading Finishing Strong, New Release, and Autumn Equinox

Patriot Day and Another Busy Week

It's hard to believe that sixteen years have passed since that fateful day in 2001. For as long as I live, I'll never forget the feeling I had when I first heard the news of the planes hitting the Twin Towers. Sitting in my office at work, I turned on the radio seconds later to … Continue reading Patriot Day and Another Busy Week

Full Moons, Time Travel, and a Holiday

After taking two days off from my day job last week, I had a five day weekend with the Labor Day holiday. And can I say those five days went by incredibly fast? Somehow, in my busyness to finish Unknown Reasons as well as formatting another book, I lost track of the fact we had … Continue reading Full Moons, Time Travel, and a Holiday
