Let’s do this thing!

Posted on Updated on

This is my morning writing exercise .  The idea is to shake the cobwebs out of my brain before I actually attempt to get some semi-coherent and pointed stuff written down.  The goal for the day is 1,000 words.  Anything more than that is gravy.

I’m excited about some conversations I had last night with a talented artist who I plan to collaborate.  He will turn my stick figures and scribbles into some actual cover art.  Excited!  Maybe I can help color the artwork.  I excel at staying inside the lines.  We even planned to explore the idea of doing some graphic novels.

Coffee is brewing.  Need coffee.

Notes have been hastily collected from the night before after the exhausting sleep I had.  Yeah, when your brain is firing out ideas for a writing project it can be tiring being awake and even more so being asleep because I dream up these “great” ideas and try to will my brain to remember it all.  I wake up with a memory hangover trying to hold onto the ideas rattling around my brain.

Also I promise to get some work done on this website and blog.  The background is pretty stock and there are no links to anything special.  Work in progress!

Had to share this…May the 4th be with you!  Ha!

UPDATE:  Got my 1000 words in.  Yay for me.  Now to watch the Mariners get spanked by the Astros.  How can the worst team in baseball keep beating the Mariners???  Oh, maybe that makes the Mariners the worst team in baseball!


Good Evening!

So how does one start their very first blog?  How about an introduction to what they are blogging and the reason why others should care.  Sounds like a plan, eh?

This blog will be multifaceted.  I will scribe notes, observations, roadblocks, and successes in regards to my writing  and story telling as I move forward with projects big and small.  It is my hope and desire to publish works in the e-book realm soon (think Amazon Kindle etc.)

I am also interested in history, politics, and the world around me so be prepared for my observations on those topics.  Understand that my views are my own and are not meant to be offensive.  If they are offensive please remember that you are a human being capable of independent thought.  If the stove is hot, don’t touch it.  If the post is offensive, don’t read that post (but please read some of my others!).  Also know that Jack W. Kurtz is a pseudonym.  This pseudonym is in use not because I am afraid to stand behind my personal views rather it is to make my day job survivable…the bills are currently paid with my work as a teacher and thinking outside the establishment in that profession is dangerous.  Dangerous indeed!
