|Does this man look happy to you?|
Anger and distractions
You ever have one of those days when just have had enough of the constant garbage that's thrown at you on so many levels? That's where I am today. It's just been one of those days. For days I've been trying to get back to writing, and somehow this is the upside of my lousy day today. I suddenly have the desire to put words to screen and burn off some anger productively. It's a crappy day out there so I can't do anything outside anyway. So here I am writing more in the next Crystalon adventure. Maybe this will get me fired up to get back on track permanently. I still feel the first Crystalon novel was my best piece so far. Hopefully someday it will be discovered by a wider audience.
One of the few highpoints to me lately is that my sci-fi novel ' The Cagliostro Chronicles' seems to have struck a chord with a lot of readers. To say I'm happy about this would be an understatement. People seem to like it. The funny thing about this is that when I was writing it, I wasn't sure how it was going to be accepted. I was probably least pleased with it out of all the books I had recently written. Yet here it is a success. I'm surprised, and happy. It just goes to show you that you have no idea what's going to work and what isn't. All in all I really liked the story I had written, but I wasn't sure it would resonate well with readers. There were a few times I say there thinking "What am I doing here?" But I guess I knew somehow. Hopefully it'll keep building on its popularity. It's a fast paced sci-fi space opera/adventure, that like a 'Snickers' bar, really satisfies.
