An Old Stephen King Interview Which Is Totally Awesome

Stephen King is a huge influence, and it’s really cool to see this interview from the early 80s. Especially fun (besides his playing up the roll of America’s Boogeyman at times) is to see his office and the Wang word processor he used. Adds a nice dimension to his short story, “Word Processor of the Gods.” I think it might be time to get to work on that horror series I’ve been thinking about.

Coming Soon — THE SEER AND THE MADMAN

The  second book in the Tabard Cain saga — THE SEER AND THE MADMAN — will be released on  November 10, 2014.

In Silvida, the most powerful city on the Ackpur Ocean, Tabard Cain seeks the truth of his past and a road to his future.

This Writing Week — 10/20/14

Last week turned out to be one of the crazy weeks with lots of interruptions. Some were good: I had a nice visit with a doctor about weight management and overall health. Some were annoying: I can’t image how getting the oil changed can ever be fun. Some were unexpected: I ended up having to run errands one day. And some were wonderful: my wife surprised me by taking Friday off, and we had a nice day together. But I didn’t get nearly as much finished as I hoped. Time to press on.

This week, I have two “life” events I need to tend to — a meeting at my kids’ school about the direction they want to take, and a No School Day on Friday. The meeting is in the afternoon, after my writing session, and the No School Day isn’t much of an issue (in terms of writing) since the kids will be spending most of the day with their grandparents.

What do I hope to achieve this week?

Three things:

1) I want to get a good start to the third Tabard Cain novel, THE CITY OF SPIDERS.

2) I want to finish the first proofread of the second Tabard Cain novel, THE SEER AND THE MADMAN.

3) I’d like to get another 3,000 words written on the nonfiction book I’m writing.

That’s pretty doable, I think.
