I’m delighted to say I’ve finished our taxes for the year, two months ahead of schedule, so now I can tend to all those other things, little and big, that sat by the wayside while I worried about getting that done. As soon as I finish writing and posting a couple of articles to this blog in the next few days, I can finally get back into the flow of that book I’ve been trying to write for the longest time, Two Worlds. I have nine or so chapters now, but it would be more appropriate for me to call them -ish.

This book won’t have a straight chronological timeline. I have to wrote at least three different plot lines separately, then try to blend them into what I hope will be a cohesive narrative of the greater story. That means I probably won’t be using every single scene that I’m putting into the separate stories because they’re more for my benefit, so I can envision the lives of characters that’ll be shuffled together into the final version of the novel.

This is a new experience for me. Or perhaps I should call it an experiment. Any positive thoughts you can send my way will be much appreciated and will help me keep slogging away at it while I keep hoping it will one day make sense.

And just to keep the thought of what I’m trying to say in this blog and in my books, and any other way I can, here is a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that perfectly reflects the point of all my work and, I hope, my life:

As always, I invite everyone to join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Meanwhile, send out your positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!

The World I Imagine: A creative manual for ending poverty and building peace and my historical mystery novel, Lion’s Pride, are available through your local bookstore. They are featured at, Barnes & Noble, and most online bookstores around the world. Both are available for Kindle readers.

COMMENTS: The purpose of this blog is to share positive ideas for making changes that will help everyone, not just a narrow group of people. I’d love to hear more ideas for imprinting positive effects over a wide range of areas in our society.
