Here, another month has almost passed, and I realized it’s been a rather long time since I published an update. The best way to stay current on my publishing is to be a subscriber to my newsletter.
Before long, the only posts that will appear here will be write-ups of tech projects (like the NAS I keep wanting to build).
The current project is my debut Science Fiction series: Cole & Srexx. Cole & Srexx is (so far) the shortest concept to publication cycle I’ve had. I must confess to being rather pleased with that. I’ve read several authors who say that the more books you writes, the faster you’ll write them…as the process gets streamlined and your mind learns how to think for creative writing.
That may sound a bit like gobbledy-gook, but my experience thus far lends weight to it.
Another aspect to increased productivity (at least on the creative side) is learning how to shift your mind into that creative space we all need to write. If you’re fortunate enough to be able to write full time, this isn’t so difficult. For others, though, the only time they have to write is late at night after their family’s asleep or early morning before they wake up.
The ultimate secret to productivity, though, is simply writing. Whether you dictate, record for transcription, put your butt in a chair in front of a keyboard…the only way you’ll complete a manuscript is to dedicate time for writing it. Robert Heinlein–one of the most prolific Science Fiction authors of the twentieth century–had five rules for success. Number One?
You Must Write.
So, without further ado, let’s get into the actual update!
