Zig Ziglar

"You can have anything you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want." Or something close to that. -Zig Ziglar.

Thanks for the inspiration and the sound of reason during a time I search for some. The world was a better place with you in it and it dimmed just a bit when you left.

Enjoy your new View from the Top

About Half Way

The march towards releasing my Christmas story, Twice the Christmas, progresses a little each day. It's a fun finale and I am excited to get to the end but loving this last review.

The main character, 11 year old Riley Thomas, is such a little kid. He's an amalgamation of so many little boys that I have known thoughout my life, including my own boys. He really doesn't reflect one individual.

In writing his character, I see him every day. I hear him and I know what he thinks. He's a great kid. I hope as you read Twice the Christmas, you'll get to enjoy him as much as I do. I wonder if you'll recognize him from a little boy that you know or knew. I would love to hear about it.

Tick, tock...

Working Hard

I've been working hard the past few weeks to get an original Christmas story edited and final touches added to make it available on Kindle.

It has been a year in the making and I am really excited to finally share it. I'll keep you updated but my target is this weekend (First of December).

The working Title is "Twice the Christmas". I'll post more  about the story over this next week.

Got to get back to work. Later.

Bagging the Bucket List

I'm really tired of hearing about bucket lists and people working on them.
Just go live your life, don't feel the need to make the process Holy.

Survey This

As I mentioned earlier on Twitter, I do not do surveys.

Please take the time to fill out my survey, however, because my reasons for bugging you must far outweigh anything you might be doing or any objection that you might have.

An entire frickin' year?

Actually a little bit over a year.
Actually a few months over a year.
That is since I last posted on this blog. A lot has happened and quite frankly, it would be great fro a daytime soap (in reality, no it wouldn't), but for my life- it was one of times that a Blog was not something with which I needed to be keeping up. My life kept me running and was tough enough.
I am back, however, to living day-to-day and thus, its time to re-kindle the blogging spirit. I hope it's as good for you as it is for me.
Welcome back, mike. If I say so myself.
