Looking Ahead

I have reached the point in my life where I’m moving into a new phase. My youngest child is out of high school. She will start college in the fall. The two oldest, both boys, are still living at home and trying to figure themselves out. Hopefully they will quit dragging their feet. I am pretty laid back in the department of telling them what to be. I feel if someone tells you what to be, you will one day regret what you are. I want them to learn who they are on their own. I also want them to get to a point they can move out. That may not happen until my wife and I downsize in a couple of years and move to where we have been wanting to live for years now. We just aren’t there financially yet.

So, I find myself wondering what to do. My schedule is all out of whack. I knew for so long what I would be doing and when each day. I tend to get lost in thought way too easy when trying to get locked into a new way of going through my day. My blog will be one of my focus. My writing will be another. My gaming will also fill my time. I haven’t worked regular job in 15 years. There were reasons I became a stay at home dad. Today, with the problems with my hands and arms, I doubt I could even manage an entry level job with the level of pain they are in some days. Finding a management job with no work experience over the last 15 years will probably be out of the question. 
So, with the support of my wife, I will continue to try to live my dream. To write.

My problem is that I have tons of stories in my head. So many ideas that I forget some them before I get a chance to write them down, but I have a hard time creating the story in book form. I could write a screenplay, but those are hard to sell if you don’t know anyone.

I have put out a few books over the last couple of years in the self-publish realm. I just SUCK at advertising them. I hope that once I finish the book I am currently working on that I can find an agent that believes in the story enough to try and sell it. If not I will once again try my hand at advertising myself.

Until then, I will attempt to write each weekday on this blog. I probably won’t do it every day, but I will try. There will be no rhyme or reason to what I write about. My interest varies. I may even rant from time to time. Hell, there may not ever be anyone who reads any of it. I will write however, until I can’t.
