Writing Apology

I must apologize for not putting anything up here in so long. A friend of mine challenged me to create as much content in thirty days as possible. So with that being said, it was time to “man-up” and accept the challenge and get to writing. 

If you’re a writer then get to writing because only writing does writing. The words won’t appear out of thin air and onto the page (unless you have some special skill, if so, I NEED IT). I have so many ideas about stories that I want to write that it is hard to find time to do all of the little things that need to be done. But in preparation for a new short story series titled “The Power Array Saga” (download Part One from the EVapor ENT company website – link below) I have been trying to stay within a certain state of mind. 

When I say that, I do not mean that I am trying to stay intoxicated for the entire day from some foreign or toxic substance but I do want to try and stay intoxicated with writing. It is very difficult to put myself into the “writer-mode” and rip off over a thousand words without being distracted by something. People have real lives which intrude upon the inner worlds that we have created. 

To all the writers out there, my advice to you is to try and stay intoxicated off the fantasy worlds and interesting characters that you have created. Not everyone has the skill that some of us science fiction, fantasy writers have so be thankful for you gift and get back to writing.
