Time lines for writing..

When writing, time lines in the book, in my view, is somewhat important. More so, for suspense or thrillers. Even for psychological thrillers.

For comedies, like what I write, I do not think it is as important. As, everyone takes a carefree attitude, and you want to get away from the seriousness of writing. That is why, many people, run to a good comedy every so often. You just want to laugh. The timeline, therefore, in my view, is somewhat important, but not as important as the more serious type of dramas.

But, I need to go over the timelines a little bit in part two. Just to make sure, they all fit to some sort of logical framework. I went over 3 pages today, but, relatives are still around. I have little time to fiddle with this as of late. But, I will be trying to get a good day or two at it, very soon!

Tomorrow, boxing day sales. Televisions are cut, by a few hundred dollars. I may break down, and buy a flat screen. I still have, a picture tube ( would you believe), in my living room. It worked for the last, 8 or 9 years, and still gives a good picture. Just that the thing is so heavy! Time for a new one, I guess. And, I do not want 3 D tv. I will be satisfied with, the regular, run of the mill, 2D tv... Till then..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
