Should not wish your life by.

You got a job. It sucks. It is monotonous. You get into a routine. There is no room in the foreseeable future for expansion, and the tasks keep being added on to your duties. Mundane, dirty, tasks.

You wish time away. You say, boys, I cannot wait until I get to 55 so I can retire... But retiring these days, and in the future may take you to 65.  Or 67, as some governments raise their age limits for pensionable liability. How can governments forecast that far away, is unknown to me.

You then realize that when retirement comes, maybe you will be not in shape to enjoy those years. So what can you do?

Make the most of your time at your crappy job as you can. Smile, try to enjoy time, and take more vacation and relaxation moments in between your grinding job. Experience more, relax more in between, take up hobbies or something. Do not sit down and absorb all of the negativity that comes with your job getting worse and worse all the time!

This is somewhat the situation for many of us in the new job market. No new jobs, stagnant, sitting in a river with not much flow.

You need to keep positive. It may take a few years, but things will change. Life is too beautiful to leave it all rest on your crummy job! If you are reading this, and you got a great job, then now you can appreciate your clean, interesting, creative job more now!  For those of us who got sickening jobs, do not wish your life away. Life is beautiful, just take a look around us! It is too great a thing for that. The bad always passes, in due time...

As far as the book world is concerned, no changes on that front... No news.. Till next time..

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"
