Things that you waste time on in office and can’t explain why


Do you find yourself stuck in the office almost every night while you watched the rest of your colleagues pack up and leave for home? Yet when you and your boss questioned you why and where you spent your time during office hours, you can’t really give a good explanation. It is not that you are unproductive or have poor time management, it could be that you are spending too much time and holding on to issues that couldn’t change any results of your work or help you in any way.


Drafting angry internal emails
There will be times where you are frustrated at how other colleagues or department conduct their jobs. While it is right that you make a stand how their decisions affect you, drafting yet another angry email to them will not turn things around, instead, it might even make relations worsened between you and the recipients.

Breakaway Links Of The Day 4-18-2016

Today we have disturbing aspects of the direction that American Education is headed into covered by Dr. Farrell from separate avenues, while we also have two links on the dangers of vaccinations.

If you are a parent, know anybody that vaccinates regularly, or are someone seeking additional information, please check out Jon Rappoport’s piece on vaccination.  Its a great starting point for those that haven’t begun sifting through the data available.

In the cornerstone of corruption, Big Pharma’s ways are covered at length by Dr. Mercola, while the folks at DailyBell penned an excellent piece regarding how financial privacy is undergoing a full-court press.

There are eight links in all, but each with vital information for those seeking information that the mainstream media rarely covers.

Hope all is well.

If Tomorrow Never Comes

The Lonely Author


If Tomorrow Never Comes

What would you do today
If tomorrow never comes
Will you find a good seat
To admire the final sunset
Would you appreciate the
things you took for granted
who will you hold one final
time when forever arrives
lets make time to forgive
and share a day of world peace
as we live eternity tonight
If tomorrow never comes

While researching magazines to submit my writing, I discovered the need for sci-fi poetry. The inspiration for this post comes from my reading of a NEO (near Earth object), an asteroid destined to pass the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  When it was first discovered in December 2004, NASA estimated the asteroid (named 99942 Apophis) had a 2.7% chance of slamming into the Earth.  We now know this asteroid will be a near miss.

16 Reasons to Read your Words Aloud.


Most writers have learned the importance of reading their words aloud. It’s advice I heeded early on and am happy to pass along.

Writing works on myriad levels. On one level, it’s the mechanical delivery of a story, the typing of words according to rules. It’s fingers on keyboards, reams of paper and editing drafts. Beneath the surface, writing is meaning-making through narrative, tapping universal themes and archetypes that existed before man first etched his carvings into cave walls.

As an art form, writing has the ability to transport a reader into another world. We paint with words on the mind’s canvas, compose the music of language, stir smells, tastes, and tactile impressions. The goal is emotional immersion, being present in the experience.

I have an irksome sensitivity…

Those Darn Cussing Characters

Myths of the Mirror

cussing 1 All modified images from pixabay

I don’t cuss. Well, rarely, and when I do, it usually makes me laugh, which defeats the purpose of expressing the strength of my irritation.

Yet, my characters cuss, some worse than others, and my cursing characters have elicited some negative reviews. It was a risk I chose to take, and I’m not shocked by the occasional blow back. Since profanity is controversial, authors should weigh whether swearing will occur in their books, and if so, what kind and how much.

Consider that these choices apply to a blog too. Readers may forgo your cuss-free book because of cursing on your blog. Just saying.

Certain books lend themselves toward cursing more than others. Carrie Rubin of The Write Transition commented on her blog that, “a 17-year-old, inner-city Cleveland bully would not call his victim a “chubby poo-poo head.” I would agree. The same may apply to…
