All is right in the Universe. My Universe anyway. The Universe that I created for Pilgrim’s Trail hit a snag as scientists discovered planets in Tau Ceti that were contrary to the ones that I made up. I have adjusted the solar system to fit the discoveries without a major rewrite. Knowing a thing or two…

Sometimes discovery outdistances the writer. When I started writing Pilgrim’s Trail last summer humanity doubted that there were any planets surrounding one of the nearest stars, Tau Ceti. So I wrote about that solar system explaining how it had eight planets that were equal distant from the Tau Ceti Sun rotating at a perpendicular angle to…

Never Read Your Own Blog

Never read your own blog, you catch all the spelling errors, stupid things you said and it is narcissistic! LOL Pigrim’s Trail strives toward completion as it is close to crossing the 30,000 word threshold. This may sound odd but I have several stories that make about 20,000 words and then ‘lose their legs’ as…

Alive to see 2013

I can remember thinking that I would never live to see the year 2000 and now it is 2013 and I am still cruising along. My mentor passed away over the holidays and my sense of loss was filled with this amazingly huge family of his that has come to include me and my sons…
