If you are an extrovert, you are lucky, in the sense that the world thinks extroverts are where it is at. You can socialize well, do business well, work well in public environments, have fewer issues with public speaking and so many other traits.

After my previous post, you might gather a slight indication I am introverted. I am actually quite introverted but years of customer service experience has helped me develop my chit chat with people. One thing I didn’t mention is that I am very modest. Very shy about my accomplishments. I was at my friend’s house…… Continue reading So… what is that story about?

Yep, another Valentine’s day is upon us. I’m not much for it, to be honest. Over commercialized. But my spouse is sweet and sentimental.

And he had some heart…… Continue reading Valentine’s Day… again?

I have this novel where tragedy has struck. Death. Someone has to die. Not always. Not every kind of book. But it is my rule for fantasy. Someone has to die. When chaos erupts… people die. So death has happened. Should I end it at death, that is the question? The novel has built up…… Continue reading Tragic ending or just tragic pit stop?
Yes, that headline should be common to every writer. Especially us insomniacs who think about endless things, passing the time while waiting for the elusive Sandman. The man is a bit of a slacker really. Usually, we are struck with brilliance like a bolt from the GODs. Where did this even come from? It is…… Continue reading Brilliant idea strikes at sleepy time

I brought home a load of books. I had two Chapters gift cards worth a total of $100 dollars to spend. And spend I did. In fact, 50 over.

I am going back to using a pen name. I have a thing for using a pen name. I like the idea of keeping my non-fiction separate from my fiction. I suppose that means I’ll have to change the address of this blog, but for now I just changed the header. I chose Lil Hamilton.…… Continue reading Pen name
