A lot has transpired since my last journal post. I know I haven't been posting too many of them lately, but truth be told, that "Storytime: Norfolk Edition" during October pretty much wore me out.
It's official! I have been hired to write the biography of one Ted W. Fickisen. You may know of him since I left a three part interview here on the blog during the weekend of December 13th, 14th and 15th.
Anyhow, after the interview, Ted contacted me and offered me the job to write his biography. We were planning on discussing it in January, however, he recently phoned me and we sealed the deal. Now our meeting in January is to have a sit down and go over all the details. I plan on hitting this project hard and fast. I have a plan on how we can accomplish this task quickly, and hopefully, painlessly.
I think one of the biggest challenges for a writer is to write someone's biography. It's also a great honor to be approached with such a project. I'm more excited about the press I will be getting on a local level and possibly, statewide level in taking on this project. Ted Fickisen is well known and has received much press throughout his career as a pen and ink artist.
The book will be made available through all E-Readers of course, but I will also be publishing paperbacks too. The press this project will probably garner will certainly take my career to the next level. Fingers crossed.
I also have a meeting with some friends scheduled in January to start my own non-profit organization to help combat cyber bullying. Much of what it takes to do this remains a mystery to me, and my hope is that I can juggle both this writing project with Ted, and getting this organization started.
I also have a new book due to come out sometime between February and mid March, "Light Years Away", the second installment of my five book series I aptly call, "The Light" series.
Also on tap for 2014, four or five new songs for my Youtube channel. This means many trips to Columbus for studio time.
To add to the work load, I am also writing a book called, "Goodreads: Or Good Pedophilia", which will cover my experience on Goodreads including my situation with my stalker, and the illegal (or highly questionable) activities taking place (or has taken place) on the Goodreads website. It will be more or less a tell-all book.
I will also be editing the third book of my five book science fiction series, "Years In The Light", and hope to have it ready for publication by early 2015. (Late 2014 if I'm lucky)
There's already a buzz in the air around these parts with everything I hope to get done in the new year. In fact, word has already gotten around some about this biography I will be writing. This buzz has caused an old flame to re-emerge. A blast from the past if you will.
A reunion of sorts being requested by someone who rung me dry of emotions in earlier days, among other things. A girl who gives bad girls a bad name. Now, not all girls are "money grabbers" so don't go thinking that I am pointing the finger at the entire female population, I'm not. It's just this specific girl has a history of "going where the green bucks grow". (If you catch my drift, and I think that you do.)
I guess I can't blame her for giving it the old college try, I would too probably if my prospects were grim, and in this economy, made to be even grimmer. (Thanks Obama) But fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, WTF? Are you mad?
I was already prepared, sort of, to give relationships a try. Or at least, a relationship, but that didn't turn out quite the way I planned. Nothing ever really does I suppose, but while I may be unwise to what makes a relationship thrive, I am wise to what doesn't make a relationship work, and when the relationship is all about the paper, trust me, it won't work.
To all those with dollar signs in your eyes, and hidden agendas, don't be so arrogant to reveal it so quickly, people don't take kindly to that sort of motivation. In this case, that objective was revealed the first go-around, so why would I not think it would be a part of the equation the second time?
Ahem, mother didn't raise no fool.
So to this angel of seduction I say, never burn your bridges with words that will come back to haunt you later. That and, "I don't think twice for the price of a cheap time whore." Unfortunately, the past four years, that's the type I have been all too accustomed to. (With the exception of Jenny.)
Sorry if that hurts your feelings.
On second thought, no I'm not.
