I’ve Been Held Back to the Point of Falling Over…

Broken Chair

I’ve had some serious “Writer’s Block” issues for the last… oh… millennium or so. I’ve come to the conclusion over the last several months that it’s not writer’s block so much as my own stubbornness that’s keeping me from writing. But then the above event happened. In slow motion. Just like in the movies. I […]

I Kinda Love Facebook…

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs

I got a great compliment from a Facebook friend that bought “The Waitress” yesterday. She read it start-to-finish before noticing that the sun had gone down, supper was late – but took the time to tell all her friends on Facebook how much she loved it BEFORE feeding the family! I feel a little guilty, […]

I just finished the cover art for “The Cruise”. I suppose I should get busy and finish writing it now…

NaNoWriMo Update…

Posted by Les Becker on November 4, 2014 in Idea Dump, NaBloPoMo, NaNoWriMo, Writing |

I am so behind on word count in NaNoWriMo that it’s frightening. I have just over 1,000 words clocked. The app tells me that at the rate I’m going, I will hit 50,000 words during the second week in May. This working full time is cramping my style… I’m writing the coolest story, though. It’s […]

The (Only) 5 Fears We All Share…

Posted by Les Becker on September 30, 2014 in Real Life, Writing, Zenishness... |

Psychology Today posted a really interesting article that crunched all our phobias down into five big fears that all of us share. According to this article, you may not have arachnophobia – maybe you’re even amused at another person’s fear of spiders – but if the thought of being eaten by a bear keeps you […]

I Need Advice…

Posted by Les Becker on September 30, 2008 in Short Fiction, Writing |

I don’t know whom to credit for this fabulousness, but I “stumbled” upon it HERE. Shame I can’t get much of anything else out of the site… I’ve been busy, busy of late. Writing more – and posting more often, which actually seems to work against me, as far as interaction from my readers, so […]

Feeling a Little Trapped Here…

Posted by Les Becker on November 4, 2007 in Book Mentions, Photography, Writer's Block, Writing |

My bad habits are haunting me. I just couldn’t wait to start NaNoWriMo… until the start date, that is. Now, I’m restless and can’t seem to concentrate. Hmmm, my coffee cup is empty, excuse me a minute. The story is there. All I have to do is sit my ass down and write it. Geez, […]

I think Emma is starting to take over, now. I’m looking forward to the >word count reading over 5,000 before I change the clock back an hour tonight. Oh yeah… don’t forget to change the clock back an hour tonight. That’s my Public Service Announcement for the year. Random Song for the Day: “Seen the […]

Breathe.

Posted by Les Becker on November 2, 2007 in J.O.B., NaNoWriMo, Photography, Real Life, The Father Chronicles, Writing |

I’m …. tired. The last couple of weeks have been draining. I didn’t realize how tense things were getting, what with the good things, like gearing up for NaNoWriMo, the bad things, which I will get to in a sec, and the confusing things – mostly just trying to find “my place” at the J.O.B., […]

Snarl.

Posted by Les Becker on November 1, 2007 in NaNoWriMo, Real Life, Wednesday, Writing |

Nasty. Horrible. Crappy. StressFULL. Crappy. Stupid. Endless. Tear-i-fying. CRAPPY. More crappy. I have not had this bad a day – start to finish – in such an incredibly long time that I can’t recall having had this bad a day in… I don’t even care, but I’ll bet it was a Wednesday. Wednesdays suck. Yes, […]
