As I Live and Learn
I've been collecting my writings from years gone by as I find them. Each time I move - now 5 times in the last 3 years - I find more scraps, loose sheets, etc. with my thoughts from various times in my life. I've decided to copy as many of them as I can here to try and keep from losing them again, and to share with the world.
Please feel free to comment as thoughts occur to you. Either send them to email@example.com or use the comment links here.
Thanks, and Enjoy!

I've said for years that I work best with a deadline. Without a deadline I put things off, or tend not to have motivation to do the thing. And this month I'm proving it. I'm actually writing that novel.
Yesterday half the month was over, and yesterday my story Bane of Death hit 25,000 words (half the needed 50,000)!
If you want to read it as I'm writing it, visit my Stories To Be blog.
In the beginning of the month I was surprised at how well things were going. But after thinking I realized it makes sense. It's the power of the deadline. I respond to deadlines. Guess that means I'm not the great procrastinator I trained to be. Nah, it just means I'm a realistic procrastinator!
