Of Day Jobs, Bingo, and The Spring Baking Championship on Food Network

Although most writers wish they could write full-time, the great majority of us need to hold down a day job.

I’m fortunate to have a part-time job that I can do by telecommute. I don’t have to drive anywhere, and I don’t have to work a full day. Still, sometimes I find the day job draining. It’s hard to transition to writing.

After I finish the day job, I do my best to turn to my creative side. And by creative side, I mean working out. And by working out, I mean playing bingo on gsn.com and watching The Spring Baking Championship on Food Network. Ha, ha.

I’m mostly kidding. I do indulge in game-playing at gsn.com as well as watching baking shows. And I work out six days a week. But I also push myself every weekday to accomplish at least *something* that’s related to my writing, whether it’s penning a poem or essay, or trying to market a previously-written piece.

As for bigger projects,  I’m currently writing a screenplay. It’s a Christmas movie I hope to sell to Hallmark or the like. This is my first attempt at screenwriting, and I’m still learning the basics of formatting. Wish me luck.

I need to start a project soon that I’m not sure I’m supposed to talk about yet. All I’ll say for now is that it’s spring-related!

 

 

 

 

Probable Claus

I’ve just released a Storybook Park Short Mystery on Amazon. It’s currently selling for 99 cents, but look out for a free promotion!

When the statue of Santa Claus from StoryWorld’s ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas set goes missing, owner Ashling Cleary has to figure out whodunit and why. The answers will surprise her.

This story takes place following the events of The Princess and the Poison.
