MILK RUN Update

Hi All! It’s taking me a bit longer to complete the next scene chapter for my new military SciFi novel MILK RUN. That’s because, unlike the other scenes posted, this is literally a brand new scene. The earlier scenes were created about six years ago. But I got writer’s block and things got real busy at the office. So, I stopped the project. Picking up where I left off, those scenes required less rework and…

August 22, 2022 Beta Reader Review Update

Got lots of good feedback from my military SciFi novel MILK RUN beta readers on the idea to change the 17th scene (Standoff!).  The change happens when our hero, Captain Toby Louis is relieved of command on the destroyer class spaceship, USS Princeton, by his second in command, Commander John Emerson.  Some might call it mutiny.  Others might call it saving the ship, its crew and mission.  (Hey!

That got the writing juices flowing again as I put fingers to keyboard and continued the…

MILK RUN is currently in the “creation” stage as I write one scene at a time based on an earlier outline that follows the seven basic elements of a classic three…

Back to Writing After Six Long Years

After a a six-year hiatus, I’ve picked up from where I left off on writing MILK RUN!  Before then, everything was going fine till I ran into the dreaded writer’s block.  The story felt flat and typical, and I didn’t like that.   So, in 2016, I stopped everything, including publishing the already completed HEAVEN’S ANT FARM SciFi novel to the bookstores.   I guess I just needed to clear my head a bit.   Besides, I was…
