Some Good News… Eventually

2021-02-27T11:25:59-06:00February 27th, 2021|Audiobooks, David, Writing|

It Started As One Of Those Weeks The great Midwest deepfreeze of 2021 thawed overnight. It was suddenly a balmy 65 and warm enough to pull my car out of the garage. After a frustrating day of tech consultant troubleshooting I needed the distraction of a small project. All I wanted [...]

Believe In Your Story – New YouTube Series

2021-01-28T07:10:06-06:00August 19th, 2020|David, gotAngst, Vlog, Writing|

When I was in High School, back in the early 90s, I made a fun, goofy movie preview for LEGO The Movie. It seemed like a ludicrous concept which made it perfect for me. (Apparently I was before my time.) I loved the idea of making movies, who doesn’t. I took a film class [...]

Endings

I forced myself to finish the 5th, and final Angst book last weekend, and it was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done. Even though I had written the final chapter long ago, and knew exactly how to get there, I struggled. While closure can be a good thing, it is often painful. After [...]

Updating My To-Do List

2021-02-03T21:47:24-06:00December 1st, 2017|Books, David, gotAngst, Writing|

I hit the tail end of a long to-do list today, and had to take a step back to reassess. I’ve accomplished a lot of behind-the-scenes, sometimes boring, but very important work for my books. I’ve been so deep in the throes of the business of publishing for the last several months, that I [...]

I’m Fine. Everything is Fine.

So, Angst 5: Something with Something Angst, is coming along fine. Everything’s fine. For some reason, working 50 hours a week, being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, and now having to exercise has slowed my progress. Weird, huh? My new PD meds have made me as focused as a teenage boy at a female gymnastic [...]

Reminding Myself Why I Write

2021-02-11T15:07:55-06:00November 2nd, 2016|gotAngst, Muses, Writing|

A writer friend of mine recently expressed some of her frustrations on Facebook, and how, sometimes, writing can feel thankless. Her post wasn’t hateful or negative, she was merely disheartened. I get it. You pour days and soul into your work, and when it’s all done, the rewards don’t always feel like they compensate the [...]

Burning with Angst Is Almost Ready!

2021-03-01T22:01:11-06:00September 21st, 2016|Books, Writing|

I’m pleased to announce that the rough draft of my fourth fantasy novel, Burning with Angst, is complete! I have sent off copies to the beta team for review and discussion. So far the feedback on early chapters has been excellent. Always a good sign. I have also scheduled time with my amazing editor, Danielle [...]

How Daniel Craig made me feel better about my writing

2021-02-23T23:28:19-06:00November 20th, 2015|David, Writing|

When I am on the downhill ride of a novel, that part where the ideas tumble out so fast I almost can’t type enough words per minute to keep up, in the back of my head, I remember thinking, “I’m going to keep this momentum going.” At this point of the creative journey, I [...]
