I try to follow Steven Pressfield's advice and just not succumb to the resistance. I think this is a similar theme to Anne Lamott's Bird By Bird, which is an excellent book for aspiring writers. Even if you sit in front of the screen and write the worst thing you've ever written, at least you're moving forward. You might discard it later, you might fix it, or you might decide six months from now it's the best thing ever. I would rather have a novel that needs work in my computer than no novel at all.(less)

On Happiness

When I think about this calendar year objectively, it’s hard to justify calling it the happiest year of my life, but it is. As it stands, it’s been 7 months since I last saw the love of my life in person, and our visa process has been fraught with hiccups and challenges and remains ongoing even as I type this. The stress off all of this on top of dealing with family issues, building a business...

(Excerpt - Chapter One) Compendium - Artfacts of Lumin Book One (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:39PM
Description: On the heavily forested planet of Lumin, the Network has slept, dormant, for over six hundred cycles. Only a select few remember that it resides beneath the crust of the planet, waiting, and for those who do, the battle for Lumin’s future has raged in the shadows. When Mia Jayne’s path crosses with an ancient volume in the Archives of the Order of Vis Firmitas, this ancient battle moves from the shadows into the light. Compendium opens up a world of knowledge, and, for the first time since arriving at the Order, Mia has the key to reclaim the freedom she has lost. To do so, she must choose between her conscience and her heart. Conceived against an ailing world of fantastical beauty where long-lost technology tips the balance between extinction and survival, Mia must remember that there is always a choice, and that makes all the difference.
