Greetings and salutations, fellow readers! It's that time again. Story Time With Tim. This week's offering is called 'I Didn't See That Coming', a short story I wrote for one of my Creative Writing classes when I was majoring in the Motion Picture Production program at Wright State University. I must say, this one was … Continue reading I Didn’t See THAT Coming: Story Time With Tim
So, here we are again, faithful reader! This one will be slightly shorter as the two micro-chapters afterwards tend to flow together and it would just be too long to include them in this offering. So, hope you're following along and enjoying! Here we go! 1.12 EARLY APRIL 1945 A CLEAR DAY, AN UNKNOWN ISLAND … Continue reading LEFT OF MIDNIGHT SECTION 1: MICRO-CHAPTERS 1.12-1.14
It's that time again! I think I'm going to start shifting postings to the weekends because trying to do it during the week is becoming a little challenging. Working all day until 4:30, getting home after five, and then trying to write something up once getting home? Just too much effort when one is exhausted … Continue reading The Trixx Rabbit Strikes Back: Story Time With Tim
I've been working on writing my new novel, Left of Midnight, for quite the chunk of time. The book itself has already been written once. The very, very, very rough draft of the original novel ran just shy of 70k words. This new take on it is just over 144k and sitting at only two … Continue reading A Novel Experiment
The question for any writer seems to always be, 'Who is your audience?' And the truth is, I have no idea. Sure, it works out well for nonfiction writers on discovering who their general audiences are (because, as it happens to be, most nonfiction writers write towards a certain group of people). I, however, do … Continue reading Who Is Your Audience?
Greetings and salutations! Welcome back to another blog post. Hopefully, this one will be an enjoyable one. Been trying to get the word out about my newest novel, Red Star Sheriff (--->https://www.amazon.com/Red-Star-Sheriff-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B085MNJX71<--- ), as far and wide as possible. It's not gaining a whole lot of traction, but, what can you do? All I can … Continue reading New Novel Approaches
Okay, I'm just going to release Red Star Sheriff on March 26th, 2020. With the virus on the loose and great uncertainties all around, I just feel it would be best to get the book out there in as soon a manner as possible. The paperback will be along shortly thereafter, though Amazon may not … Continue reading Update
I'm sure nobody here has ever had that problem. Chances are, you all have hundreds of readers every day and no fits and seizures ever affect your bottom line. And that is awesome! Amazing! Impressive! Awe inspiring! Yet, there are those of us who, for some reason, fail to resonate with more than a few … Continue reading What Do You Do When No One Wants To Read Your Work?
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MAY IT BE A GREAT 2020!! I'm a little bit late in saying that. I've been fairly busy the start of this new year. And already so much is happening, innit? A looming impeachment trial, another election cycle, knife attacks are running rampant worldwide (for some... strange reason), threats of war … Continue reading A Little Late…
I've often heard remarks about story telling that a beginning is the most important aspect of a tale. But is that so? Because an ending can stick in a reader's mind for ages. Yet, I'm of the opinion that both are important for a story to work and unfold. I'm a firm supporter of a … Continue reading Which Is More Important: Beginning or End?
