Writing

One of my biggest challenges in life, and as writer, is that I see too far ahead in too much detail. I get lost in all the minutia in my head, instead of focusing on the next step, and my thoughts often don’t make it to paper.

There are a lot of details to get lost in tied to publishing writing. In order to enable myself to focus, for the moment I’m stripping away all that other stuff: physical books, ebooks, ISBNs, promotion, etc. The goal is simply to write and to share what I write.

For now, that means much of my writing will be available here, with the exception of Three Ring Circus, because I dealt with those details years ago. Hopefully, the day will come when there is demand for me to put some of these materials into book and ebook formats with a price tag, but that day is not today.

If you want to support me in this, the best way is to spread the word. Tell your friends, post on social media, and share your thoughts. Also pray. Pray for clarity, discipline, and persistence as I write, and pray for God’s financial provision, whatever job I’m working at the time, so that mentally I can be free to focus on the stories I have to tell.

With that said, here’s a list of what I have written and am writing:

Projects on the front burner

The Albino Asian Cookbook

I love to write, and I love to cook Asian food. This passion project compiles my favorite recipes mixed with my sense of humor. Disclaimer: I am neither albino or technically Asian. If you don’t have a sense of humor or are easily offended, I cannot recommend basically anything I write.

Here’s a taste:

Wonder why I have so many children so close together? This book will tell why, and the answer isn’t just, “Sex, duh.”
