Tomorrow I will be having a second story posted this month on FlashShot called “Love Is A Four Letter Word” http://www.gwthomas.org/flashshotindex.htm and I am excited about the writing I have been doing lately.  I may not being hit word counts out of the ball park (which I love to do) but I am getting good words down on paper (well the screen I should say.)

Also, I recently hit a goal of $300 donated to National Novel Writing Month so I will be able to go to their Night of Writing Dangerously and bring a friend, but now I am trying to place in the most earned in donations.  I am not going to ask anyone to donate, but if you feel like it, please do, it’s for a great cause.  My parents were nice and donated in my name, because they know how much my writing means to me.  Here’s the link if you want to donate for me: http://www.gifttool.com/athon/MyFundraisingPage?ID=1891&AID=937&PID=151218

Today I added some history to a character which chilled me to the bone, which I can only hope others feel the same way about my work when it’s ready to be shown.  I know my critique group will like it when it’s ready to be shown.  I am working a couple of stories and editing another one all at the same time, but my only “problem” is that characters from each story are whispering to me for my attention.  One of the characters woke me up last night in the middle of the night to tell me something.  Luckily when I to write today, she was still talking to me and I found out why she enjoys certain insanities that she has.

I am hopeful to finish some big projects this year.  The goals for the rest of the year are:

  1. Finish editing Ryan Says so I can start trying to sell my novel
  2. Finish writing my newest novel Double or Nothing
  3. Get deeper into my plot for my untitled bank robbing bandits who are in a band
  4. Get some more stories published
  5. Win Nanowrimo this year (going to Night of Writing Dangerously should help)

Wishing everyone good luck on their goals for the year.

Hello friends, family and anyone who finds me here.  I am a writer who has been writing my whole life and I have recently start submitting stories and getting a couple of pieces accepted.  What a wonderful feeling getting that first yes.0

I am currently working on a couple of pieces.  The first one is a Serial Killer story inspired by my mentor, ex-college professor from LSU, the second piece, my Bank Robbers story given to me by one of my favorite artists and he wishes to work with me on it and finally editing my 2008 Nano Novel Ryan Says, which was inspired by my time at LSU, friends from then and my fave band Cowboy Mouth.

Cowboy Mouth  is a rocking  band from New Orleans, LA and they played here in Vegas last night.  The show was great, I got to talk to the band members, their work has inspired much of my writing over the years, plus their lead signer Fred LeBlanc told the audience that I was the reason they came back to Vegas.  Talk about exciting and embarrassing at all the same time.  You can find Cowboy Mouth at http://www.cowboymouth.com



Okay back to my creative writing work.  This blog will be a way to help people learn about where they can find my work, where I stand on different projects and anything else that happens to come up.

I want to state here in this blog, my goal is to have at least one novel published and I am using this blog to be my “promise to myself and the world” to work until I accomplish this dream.
