This is Misty Books!!

Just to prove that I can do new stuff here on WordPress, here’s a little something that I wrote yesterday. This is day 8 of my 10 day course by the way, so you won’t have to suffer this much longer!

There are times when I’m writing that I do like to invent the odd word. ‘Authorish,‘ was a recent example. I forget the context but it doesn’t really matter now. I know it’s not a proper word because my word processor underlines it in red and the predictive text tries to change it to authorised.
It’s not the first example of my butchering of the English language and it certainly won’t be the last. But friends, I feel that I may have taken this habit (some may say bad habit) to its extreme.
Yes, I fear that I may have taken that process a tad too far…

Contemplating NaNoWriMo

I would like you to meet Scott’s World!!

Scott's World

As the end of October approaches, I have been thinking seriously about trying my hand at NaNoWriMo this year. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is held every November. The basic idea is that participants are supposed to set a goal of writing 50,000 words (the generally accepted approxamite length of a commercial novel) between the 1st and the 30th of the month.  More details about it can be found at the official website, nanowrimo.org.

The very idea is a bit daunting. It means writing an average of 1,667 words per day, assuming no days are skipped, and still having to fit in a full time job, eating, sleeping, and spending time with the family. While not impossible, there’s a reason why this isn’t held every month and writers all over the world aren’t cranking out 12 novels…

Town Mill Market, Lyme Regis, Dorset, Great Britain–Collaboration of www.bowmanauthor.com and www.photomaestro.wordpress.com

Introducing the one and only Bowman Author and Writer/Editor!! Enjoy!!

BowmanAuthor and Writer/Editor

First I want to thank Rhys Jones, photographer extraordinaire, http://www.photomaestro.wordpress.com for allowing me to write a short story in conjunction with his beautiful photograph of The Town Mill Market.

Market Day at The Olde Towne MillMarket Day at The Olde Towne Mill, Living in Many Worlds  by Deborah Bowman and Rhys Jones CLICK TO ENLARGE PHOTO

It was the year 2015. A perfect early autumn day, the leaves not even beginning their change yet to brilliant hues, but the tourists and market-goers knew that was just around the corner. Everyone wanted to enjoy this spring-like day because no one knew how many more there would be before cold winds whipped over the remains of The Cobb or Harbour Wall that protected The Town Mill Market from the roaring English Channel. It could get downright nasty in the freezing winter months, but the sea was beautiful in every season, swirling drama from comedy to tragedy.

Everyone was  happy and basking in the…

The Writing Lifestyle: It’s a Juggling Act

This is my friend Wallace and his page Thoughts, Musings, and Storytelling. He is a very talented writer and great conversationalist with wisdom and perspective.

Writing in Real Time

I’m still trying to find a middle ground between juggling a Day Job and making more time for working on my writing projects. It’s not easy and it often involves lack of sleep and some weeping and gnashing of teeth. Okay, I’m exaggerating a little about the weeping and gnashing part but you get the point. This particular article was inspired by Danny over at Dream Big, Dream Often. He’s got a great blog so you should really check it out.

Unfortunately, our modern society often preaches, subliminally, about instant gratification and an emphasis on end results instead of the in-between parts. Let’s face it, hardly anyone goes from Point A to Point Z without dealing with the 24 points in between. It’s a fact of Life that is often glossed over when we are bombarded with media images of people who seemingly come out of nowhere and achieve instant…

REALITY LATELY {01/10/2015}

Meet Celona’s Blog!

CELONA'S BLOG

I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent willCharlotte Brontë

0909and-when-we-speak_edit

Life never stops moving forward
Only new inventions are celebrated
The inventors are then quickly forgotten
The humans behind the fame would also fade
Only the ‘game’ is celebrated
Humanity is completely trapped in a game
Where the trap is the game itself
Why not choose your own trademark
Something like; “personal standards and ‘not too sane’ principles”
So we don’t have to play that same game as society imposed

Generations come and go
Regardless what we do or leave behind
We would still be easily forgotten
If all you do Is dance to tunes played by others.
See! You always had the ability to back any orchestra
Even if you have no limbs and a smeared confidence.
I know time has a way of erasing past events

Sunshine

Here’s the blog of Kathleen B. Duncan!!

kathleenbduncan

A fellow blogger wrote about feeling tired all the time. Depression over a long period.

I commented on his post. I realized as I typed my answer that I was writing a new poem.  I have revised what I originally wrote. I pray it helps him. I pray it helps you.

Tombstone Sunset

Sunshine

Tired? All the time?

My hands are tired.
My feet are tired.
My mind is tired.
My soul is tired.
My life is tired.

Have you ever felt this way?
Have you ever been depressed?
For a very long time?

Yes. I have felt this way.
For a very long time.
Darkness all around.
Cold, always cold.
Heaviness.
Tired all the time.

It’s hard to accomplish anything when I’m depressed.
It’s hard to see in the darkness.
It’s hard to move in the cold.
It’s hard to lift my eyes unto the hills in the heaviness.
It’s hard…

Rain you are lonely, crying outside in the darkness.

The Quiet Ones (poem)

Meet Al the Author’s Blog!

(comments disabled here, please see original page)

A Certain Point of View

This is for the shy ones, the quiet ones,
The too afraid to try it ones.
The hanging at the back ones,
The just don’t have the knack ones.

The timorous and tremulous,
Tethered to life’s pole.

The always do their best ones,
The nothing on their chest ones.
The calm ones, the still ones,
The even when they’re ill ones.

The doers and the triers,
Searching for their role.

This is for the nice ones, the kind ones,
The something on their mind ones.
The passive and the shy ones,
The wouldn’t tell a lie ones.

The downtrodden. The desperate,
Deep in fortune’s hole.

I hear you in the darkness,
With heavy heart and soul.
Take this helping hand in yours:
Together we are whole.

Me and My Writing

Meet Thoughts, Musings, And Storytelling!!

(comments and likes disabled, please visit original page)

Writing in Real Time

It occurs to me recently that I haven’t provided much in the way of getting to know me and my writing. Of course, there’s the “About” section of the Blog (Thoughts, Musings, and Storytelling), but that boilerplate will only take you so far. So, without further ado, here’s some things about Me and My Writing:

1) Who am I?

My name is Wallace W. Cass Jr., and I am a Sci-Fi Adventure Author who works a Day Job when he’s not publishing books on Amazon.com. I served seven years in the US Navy, worked in both State and Federal Government, and currently make my home in Southeastern Pennsylvania. I enjoy good friends, good food, and good times. Sometimes a little too much but I also put in my fair share of exercise time to keep the tonnage under control and to save me from being a target of…
