The World according to Rich


Getting back in the saddle again.

Back in the saddle trying to work on writing.

I plan on trying small. A hundred words here a few hundred there, and some little exercises to generate stuff to work on in the future.

Daily I plan to do a few small exercises to load up my toolbox for future projects.

So each day I want to come up with 3 First Names, 3 Surnames, and 3 Handles / Nicknames / Aliases. I also want to come up with 2 archetypes, 3 conflicts, 3 settings and 3 “what ifs”.

I also plan on when I have a long fiction product adding 350 words five days a week, and when I have short fiction projects adding 100 words 5 days a week.

I also plan on trying to be more active in blogging, so that I can keep words flowing, I plan on trying to do at least 3 posts a week. One on the state of my attempt to get back into writing, one dealing with causes, and the third could be either of the previous or something entirely random.


Still here Still dealing with Interviewing mayhem and kids.

Well Kid drama bit into thinking about writing this weekend, and anticipation waiting for more news / and my 2nd interview (this time with HR) ate into my actual writing time.


Still in the running or hopefully they wouldn’t waste my time and HRs setting up an interview with HR.  Means my nerves are shot waiting…  I don’t wait well.. I hated buymecrapmas and birthdays as a kid because I couldn’t wait to know what was in the pretty wrapped boxes.

I’m still scribbling ideas here and there just can’t stay focused on my actual writing.


Kids are having drama so therefore Mom and Dad have drama…  I love my kids but isn’t there a treatment for teenage drama.. like a fleadip but for drama… no one could hope where the hell is Ron Popeil when I need him?

Still trying to figure out what the limits need to be for my short story challenges.
