this year

This year has gotten off to a decent start, albeit an unexpected expensive one. I had to buy some new shoes, and I had an unexpected large maintanance charge on my car. Other than that things are ok. I have been watching good tv shows, reading good books, and seeing lots of good movies, on DVD and in the theater. I like Gone Girl, Alexandar and the Horrible Day (shortened title!), and The Equalizer. I have also posted some comments on imdb. I missed a little time at work due to allergies. We also some good ball games-Sidekicks, Allen Americans, and Stars. Those were fun. We also have tickets to a good upcoming concert, and I have been to some good UTD events. I hope to keep it up!

more writing

I have a new manuscript up on Smashwords. ( It is called 3 Survivor Stories. It has stories about a lady whose performance on American Idol gets rigged;a man who is present at the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, and the Boston Marathon attack;and friends who get sucked into "tv land" and get to meet all of their favorite television characters. Survivors indeed!
Let me know if you ever read my writing or if you'd ever like me to submit anything to you. I am also about to start on some new stories.

I had a small problem a while back. A girl filed a complaint that I followed her out to her car from the library, and I found myself in a jam. It was harmless on my part-I must have just left at the same time, and she misunderstood the situation. I know how paranoid women can be in times like these, and I can see things from her point of view, but I meant her no harm. Fortunately, she filed the report anonamously, but it did get me into trouble and put my job on the line. I have been watching myself on campus ever since.

The main things I need advice on are how to stand up to people I feel like are being hostile and how to approach people and make friends with them without having to worry about intimidating them. Those have always been the main worries in my life. I have also been trying to track people down, and they do not appear to be on such sites as Facebook and Classmates. I will keep trying though. Let me know if you have any advice. Thanks.

I am working on some new stories. One is about a guy who is present at the OKC bomibing, 9/11, and the Boston Marathon bombing, and the other is about a lady who performed at American Idol and did well;the problem is that she gets royally screwed afterwards. Since I write my stories in threes, I am trying to think of a new one. The other two are coming along well though. I will keep everyone aprised. Let me know if you might need any lessons in writing or how I come (came?) up with my stories, ideas, and characters. I would be glad to share.

I feel like things have been going ok lately. Though work could be going a little better, I have been gotten better at following "procedures," such as getting my work checked.
The main things I need to do are make new friends, track down some old ones, and work on some stories I have been developing. I know that some of my old friends still live in the area, so I want to track them down. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I am also excited about my new stories.
There are some movies at the dollar theater I am also excited about seeing.

new entry on smashwords

Great news!
I have a new work up on Smashwords! It is called 3 Trips Down Life's Byways, and I am very excited about it. Once again, it is a trilogy.
Squirrelman II is the first story. It furthers the adventure of my favorite creation, Maples' favorite superhero.
The next entry is called "The Rabbi's Ricochet." It deals with a rabbi named Lenny Lewis who used to play in the NBA, and he also moonlights as a writer and a "helper" for the police. His past suddenly comes back to haunt him, and just as suddenly, his old college gang/teammates are here too. Can they and his new friends help him?
The final entry is called "The Orange-Eyed Invasion." A woman named Kendra Simmons is worried that her friend Elena won't return her calls. She and her friend Joe suddenly becomes aware of strange things happening around town. Can her friend and the happenings be related, and can she help stop them?
Let me know if you'd be interested in reading this and my other posts on that site. Thanks!
