A vapid work week has created a holy grail of the weekends. Time seems to be tied up in the trappings of a working-class American's struggle to survive, and trivial pursuits in entertainment. Not a bad life when my marvelous family is stirred into the mixture.
Just this morning, while listening to the radio, I zipped through traffic, driving the same route I drive every Monday through Friday. Of course, I could ramble on about the depressing state of affairs I heard on the radio, plaguing our country at the moment, but if you don't already know, then I wouldn't be so cruel as to burst your bubble. Rather, congratulations on successfully isolating yourself from these affairs.
I must admit that I find it difficult not to complain about all the banal trappings of my professional existence, but that is not why I am here. The true purpose of this blog is to escape the mundane reality of work. To keep my imagination flowing through my fingers like Harold with his purple crayon.
Using Amazon, I will start publishing my stories, and I will be advertising and discussing them here. The first one will be called Assassin Marked, set into a fictional not-too-distant future.
As time passes, my goal is to fill this blog with many published stories and ideas. The blog will not have a definitive goal, but rather, I plan on letting it morph with my ideas as I come to them.
