Happy Monday. When I was still working, I used to walk into the office on Mondays and shout in a loud voice, "Happy Monday!"
I probably did it to just attract attention to myself, but it was always fun to hear people gripe and moan, "what's so happy about it." I'm sure it put a smile on some of my coworkers' faces. They were probably just thinking, Crazy Ken is in the office.
Hard at Work on Book Four
I'm hard at work on book four in the Mountain King Series. I found the path that makes the starting pages flow into where I want the characters to be at the fifty percent mark. I don't know why it took me so long to reach this point in the outlining. It all makes total sense now. I will re-use probably five chapters that I wrote earlier in the process. When I know where the story wants to go, then writing is really easy. Many authors will say they are in the flow, or I've heard authors say they didn't write the story so much as transcribed what their muse or inner voice dictated to them.
When it happens, writing is easy. When you sit staring at a blank screen for hours, it's very frustrating. For now, the outline seems pretty solid with a good beginning and a bang-up finish. Plus, some interesting things happening in the middle to keep you interested. We'll see how it all turns out in two to three months.
Mild Winter Makes Me Happy
It's been a mild winter in Northern Illinois this year. A few years ago, we took a cruise and while we were gone, the temperature had dropped to -35 below zero Fahrenheit. I'll take mild. Less snow to shovel, less severe cold, and less worry about sliding your car into another car.
When I peek my head out of the house and go out into public, I'm still amazed at the number of people who still cough into their hand instead of their elbow or forearm. Really? After almost three years of COVID and people still don't know how to reduce the transference of their germs onto other surfaces.
25% Discount if You Buy Multiple Books at the Same Time
Did you know that you get a discount if you buy more than one of my books? True. You can get up to 25% off a second book if you buy two books in the series instead of one. Now don't say, "I don't know if I'll like Kenneth's writing." You're gonna love it. Buy the whole series and dig into it. They're great.
Have a great week.
