Two more short stories have come to me today, one this afternoon, and one just now.   I hardly ever try to come up with an idea; I usually see or hear something that triggers that inner “something” that sparks an idea that then sparks a story.  The process is interesting to me and I tend to zone-out a bit as I “see” the premise and the story unfold before my mind’s eye.  I don’t totally lose all connection with my surroundings, which is good ’cause I was drivin’ when the first story of the day popped out of, or is it into, my mind!

In other news, I re-re-re-re-re-edited a critical part of The Hidden today.  This scene is an important event, a turning point in the lives of the main characters that occurs in the first half of the book.  I hope that I was able to re-craft it to bring out the emotion and meaning of the scene, but only time, and readers, will tell…


About malcolm2030

I started my formal study of a traditional Japanese martial art during my freshman year in college in late 1990 and in early 2017, I took a leap of faith and have been teaching traditional martial arts and fitness on a full-time basis. I enjoy researching and exploring topics ranging from health and fitness, brain science and quantum physics, to relational dynamics, energy, and optimum living. I believe that we all should be daily evolving toward our true potential; while there will be times when we fall back, or get pushed back, or knocked down, the sum of our steps over a given period of time should be forward.
