Do you ever feel as if you are wasting the moments of your life? Well, it’s how I feel most of the time. For example: even though I rise early in the morning, I always avoid doing something productive. This is a habit I am looking to break as soon as possible.

I wrote a little today, but I didn’t read. Most of it is due to poor management of time, but I also possess a busy part of my life. I’m working on five streams of income as a 22-year old. While I am proud of where I am as a person, I know that I can always do better. It’s one of the reasons why I rushed my writing so much that I had ten publications in the last year. I need to slow down and take my time. While some of my older storied are actually decent, you can tell that the rest were rushed, especially my first book, “His Reality.”

Quick message from our sponsor: “When somebody asks me what I really love to do I can answer that I love to create. I love the feeling when I make something with my own hands that have their own purpose. I hold a Masters in Architecture and I really like to make art in my free time and I am working as a graphic designer. If you are interested to make something for you I promise that I will enjoy and be creative 100% for your project.” Emily’s World of Design is a very reliable and fun company. Authors, bloggers, and designers trust what the company has created over the past many years. Affordable, desirable, and reliable, this company will be the face of modern book creations.

Back to the blog: I do consider “His Reality” to be something of great horror, and even I don’t know if what happened was real to Michael Nuth; however, I did learn some of what NOT to do whilst writing. My second story, “What Happened to the Tucker Family,” incorporated decent use of imagery, but I left the story unfinished. It led to my first negative review. Lesson learned.

I’m sorry if my blog posts are depressing, but this is the mind of a horror writer (at least to me). I’m making progress on my eleventh book, though, and I hope it will be a story nobody regrets reading.

Be safe out there, and remember: not everything is what it seems.

  1. Yeah, I totally get you on feeling like you’re wasting time, even when you’re doing what you want to sometimes (in my case, it’s writing, both blog posts and fiction novels). Wishing you all the best on your journey!
