It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to write anything that wasn’t work related in some way. This happens, work takes over and I set aside all the enjoyable things I do so I can make ends meet. I forgo the few hours of daily writing for a few long hours of work and then the days pass into weeks, then on to months. Suddenly, my stories are just whispers of legend, long forgotten in my mind, but bits and pieces surface as a reminder that those words long to be on paper and the legends cry to be reborn.
Today, I set aside time, juggled my schedule and sat before the keyboard. Words flow into sentences, sentences form paragraphs, and paragraphs fill a page, then two and three. I miss this time where I live in the life of characters spawned for imagination, my imagination.
For the first time in a long while, I am not handing myself the above card. It feels good.

Purchase Seven Deadly Sins II here.
In between life’s responsibilities, I’ve been hitting the keys as much as I can. Mind you, its never as much as I would like but a writer does what can be done in the time one has.
One of my recent works is Left, a seriously twisted science fiction short about a woman who is left behind on a scouting mission, captured by an strange alien force, and it gets worse from there. She returns to exact her revenge on those she feels are guilty. Wrath, a deadly sin. She pushes the envelope beyond simple revenge. Warning, this is not a story for the weak of heart.
Left has been published by 7DS Books in an anthology and I’m proud to say that I was invited to join six other fantastic and amazing authors. Today happens to be the Siniversary, which you can check out and join in on the fun on Facebook and pick up the Kindle version for free. Or just click the image to the right.
Read it, let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it.
Make sure you follow these wonderful Seven Deadly Sins authors as well, Michelle Anderson-Picarella, A.T.Russell, Michelle Horst, Tymothy Longoria, Dawn Kirby, and Vicki Adair. You can find them on Facebook and Twitter.
A Sunday Evening Post
It’s been awhile since I’ve been here. I’ve been letting my life run things for a bit, taking me in all sorts of directions but its time to change that. My need to write is always there, poking me as I try to sleep every night. I keep ignoring it for other things or I’m writing but just not on my blogs.
With this change, I’ve decided to stir things up a bit. First, I’m returning my God of Nothing blog back to its original format, an opinion blog, where I can sound off on anything I feel like sounding off on. So anything goes, Life, the Universe, and Everything (Thank you Douglas Adams, I miss you!) Hopefully, you will find it entertaining and thought-provoking.
I will keep some of the blog posts on God of Nothing that pertain to writing, my favorite poem from April R. Denton and the guest posts from Julianne Snow, one of my favorite writers. There will be some posts removed, mostly any of my fiction as that may eventually be moved to my Wolf Scott Blog.
Secondly, my Wolf Scott blog will continue to be more personal and geared more towards my writing as an author. It will include snippets and news of my current projects, some guest posts from other writers and authors, and perhaps some reviews.
Look for more frequent posts as I get back into the swing of things. And as always, thank you for reading and please feel free to say a little something about each post you read.

Tonight I’m working on CARMA, my latest work in progress which you can read a teaser on my God of Nothing Blog. I’m trying for 1500 words per week but have been failing at that the last few weeks, so need to ramp things up and get busy. Also, will try to keep things updated on this blog. I spend too much time on all my other blogs and this one gets neglected.
So check out CARMA, and let me know what you think!
