There's so much to be thankful for, even if you don't realize it. Set a goal for 2016 and do your best to meet it. For me, my goal is to get as much writing done as I can. Also, my other goal is to get something published.


Make a plan, stick to it and you should hit your mark. Believe in yourself and you can accomplish what you set out to do.


Good luck.

You better like eating air, because the super-rich powers-that-be would gladly watch you starve to death as they take the last crumpled dollar from your wallet. 


If the preceding dose of reality was too much for you, perhaps you can digest the true fate of American politics with former President Jimmy Carter’s eloquent words. The super-rich have been raping this country for a long time. It’s no surprise. That’s what the rich have always done. The fact that most people don’t do anything about it is even more disturbing. Seriously, the transformation from republic democracy to oligarchy is blatant, pervasive, and painfully obvious.…

Sometimes I don’t care. I mean I just don’t give a damn. It’s not always and the feeling goes away pretty quick, but it happens nonetheless. I mean, devoting all your time and energy to positive thinking is great and all, but sometimes, it just doesn’t work. Sometimes you just have to say screw it.

The trick is to make sure negativity’s win is only once in a while. Right now, I’m struggling to get my book ready for publication. It’s a long, slow, involved, long, slow, difficult, long, slow, and stressful process. Anyone else who’s been through it can attest to that. And it feels like it’s going to take a thousand lifetimes to get finished. Keep in mind, the story is actually finished. Right now I’m just working on getting it ready for readers to actually enjoy. I mean, I’d l…
