Done.  I’m done.

Wait, wait…no, not done writing, or even done editing The Hidden.  I’m done…with the online class I’d been taking the last couple months.  Yep, I took a really informative and fun class that focused on gettin’ stuff published.  A great friend sent me info on it earlier in the year.  I’d never taken an official online class before.  It was fun, and like I already said, informative.

Along with learning the ins and outs of the publishing industry, we did a couple of really fun creative writing assignments.  I’m considering sharing them here, but haven’t quite decided yet.  I should do it.  I might.  We’ll see.

I’ve been making progress on my revision of The Hidden, but man, I feel I need to accelerate the process.  I’m diggin’ it, deeply, but need to move a bit faster.  I know, I’ve been saying that for a while now, but I’m still tweaking my process and refining my writing as I go, and yet I haven’t hit that sweet spot where time, efficiency, effectiveness, and enjoyment all meet.  (Actually, today, I did hit that intersection point and it was amazing; made astounding progress; more on that soon.)

Even as I focus on The Hidden, new short story and novel ideas keep flowin’ to me.  A few weeks ago, I was on the way to work and BAM, a new story smacked me in the face.  In about 10 or 15 minutes, by the time I got to work, I had it, I had the whole story figured out.  I got to work, rushed to my desk and penned the page-long summary, scribbling like a madman, and smiling the whole time.  Don’t all mad scientists / crazy dudes smile when they write?

Now, with the great info I gleaned from the class, I’m going forward and will put that knowledge to action.

Done.  One part of the mission accomplished, still much more to do.



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.
