Me & My Muse – Day 1887: Writing Weekend

You heard me right.  This weekend, I will be working on my two books.

With my desire to write revived, I have made it a goal of mine to get three books published.  From a previous entry, I mentioned that I was working on three different books.  Here is what they are:

Think & Write: How I Beat Writer’s Block (Working Title)

We all hate the dreaded Writer’s Block and it happens to a lot of people.  I have been a victim of it enough times that I have actually made an exercise that helped me to shatter it.  In my book, I outline my journey of my numerous encounters with Writer’s Block and how Think & Write saved my writing.  I share a selection of my results and offer some useful advice that will help you with your own writing journey that can help beat Writer’s Block dead.

The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook: A Leap Day Paradox

Zachary Willowbrook was born with something special.  The gift of time.  With Zachary being born on a Leap Day, he ages one year for every four years that we age.  When mother Stacy Willowbrook found this out about her son, this left her in shock.  Faced with a challenge to raise a son that slowly ages, Stacy has turned to experts to figure out why her son is so different, and how she can give her son a promising future, despite his unique condition that has shocked the world.  The Tale of Zachary Willowbrook is a story of growing up differently and how to work through all the struggles in being different.  It is about seeing what is different about you as a gift and how you can use that gift for the good of others.

A Long Quest

The year is 1997.  Kyle Walker is a seventh grader at Middleton Junior High.  After repeated attempts to start on his book report for English, he is teleported to the front yard of his house where the evil goblin Henry, his long nemesis, is ready to kill him.  After Kyle’s brother pleads for his life, Henry spares Kyle, sending him to the other side of the universe.  Now on a mysterious planet, Kyle’s long journey back to earth begins.  A journey involving friendship, love, hope, bravery, and revenge.  A journey through many planets and galaxies in search of the one planet that he calls home.


The manuscript of the first book should be done soon, and then it’s getting it edited and fine tuned  before I find a publisher and a way to distribute it.  For the second book, the manuscript is complete, but it still requires some editing before it is ready to publish.  And my third book will be my largest project.  With the length of A Long Quest, it will be released in a five-book series, with a 1 volume edition coming out after the five books are published.


With that, I am now going to get underway on my books for this weekend.

Today’s high is going to be 71 degrees and the silver lining is the weekend finally being here and being able to work on my books.

To those of you who are glad that the weekend is here, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  It’s about time that you got those finished!  I look forward to seeing the printed copies!
