After a long frustration with the sad state of affairs of my old website I finally have a new one. Why didn’t I deal with it sooner? Well, life is all about timing in my opinion. I was distracted all summer long with projects and writing the third D Generation, then I got a job–oops! After four months of working my butt off for little pay and few results, I said “Hey! If I wanted to work for no pay I would work for myself.” So here I am.
The motto for this year is “No distractions.” If you know me then you know how hard that is. I’m interested in everything, and being a hands-on kinda guy, I have to try everything, too. This year no distractions means no animals and no garden–okay, some garden–and no building projects. Luckily, being a jack-of-all-trades is a great prerequisite for being a writer.
Time is ticking; I know I have this year to sell a significant number of books, get a decent contract, or get a job. In Vermont, most people’s reaction would be “Get a job!” Then I think about this week; I have been home with my boy who has the nasty flu that’s freaking out America and I’m really glad I don’t have a job. I get to make sure my son gets sleep, he’s still getting educated and well fed–not to mention he’s great to play games with. Sometimes I think games do a better job educating kids then school does. I also get time to work while he’s home. Right now he scrolling through the Magic The Gathering database reading cards on-line. This involves some new computer skills for him as well as reading far above his first grade reading level–and he’s happy about it!
All that is to say its time to sell something. I don’t know why I haven’t been using my skills with media and computers to provide you some multi-medium entertainment–maybe because I’ve been spending all my free time writing?–but that’s changing. I’ve been crunching the last month to learn a host of new applications. You may soon see the results. Anyway, enjoy this new website. The easy interface will mean a lot more updates and information from me, more entertainment, and more cool stuff I’ve wanted to put out there for a long time. Now that I’ve finally sat down and gotten on my ass: enjoy!
