I found this first part while cleaning off a thumb drive. It is from 2014.

Hi all,
After a year my muse has come back and I am starting out on that road of publication again.
Yes, it’s been a year since I have written anything, but that doesn’t mean that the well is dry.
I have been plotting in my mind different stories and revisions of two novels. Oh, so much so that I find it hard to get to sleep as the muse was getting closer to returning every day, and she has landed back in my life.
She hit with a vengeance, and the trouble now is to do it all at once, plus hold down a full day of teaching.
She has me re-writing two novels and starting a new one at the same time and IT FEELS GREAT!
She came back with plans for a whole new approach to my writing, a new genre other than the thrillers that I write.
It has been so long that I didn’t think she would ever return, even though I was plotting I couldn’t sit down and type or write. The muddy thoughts were getting to thick and then early Sunday morning before the sun rose over the east wall she landed right in my lap and said, “Let’s go. Get off your ass and write this shit down.”
So, as I sit here telling you about this and listen to Jim Croce sing away, she is hitting me with more plots and telling me to get the hell off of here.

2017 wasn’t much different, except most of the writing this year has been editing.

As those you who read this know, I am an Amateur Radio Operator.  Recently, I have been enjoying the new digital mode called FT8. Out of the last 120 contacts I have made on the radio, all but 2 were with this new mode. The other two were Morse Code and Single Side-band (or voice).

I just completed an Award called Triple Play. This is where you use voice, Morse Code and digital to work all 50 States. You must work the 50 States on each of these modes, giving you a total of 150 contacts. This is not an easy task as only 1,964 Amateur Operators have completed it.

But, I must try to concentrate more on the writing than the radio and playing on the Internet.

Several thousand-people read this Blog when I post a new one. It would be nice if you left a message down in the Comments Section telling us what is going on in your life.

I, and those people, really would like to know how you are doing.

See you later,

Hollywood Dream

You are taking so much time off from the computer in the next few days, I don't know how you will get it all done.
