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.

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.

The keys to happiness…
It seems it’s been forever since I was able to sit down and write something, anything. CARMA is under a foot of dust, and my blogs have been a wasteland of emptiness. This new job in the real world is wonderful but it keeps me all too busy and all too far away from my worlds. I’ve fallen down and finding it hard to climb my way out of this hole that keeps me away from my passion, writing. I need to set aside real time to sit and write, even if it’s only a few paragraphs a night.
My personal life, my online life, and everything in between have plummeted into obscurity. I find myself wondering how the hell I let this happen. What happened to my focus? Or rather, why did I change my focus? It’s all very simple really. I was seduced by the work, the ability to be back in the workforce, productive again. Unfortunately, I enjoy my work and I let it take over, but time to get back to the writing, back to what makes me happiest.
Never let the reality take away the worlds you live in, write them down, word by word until they become the stories that we can all enjoy…
