Releasing Fate: A Writer’s Journey

Writers can often have all sorts of ideas, but getting them on the page can be a bit of an issue.

When writers manage to put their ideas down, sometimes the ideas aren’t what they envisioned: “WTF? This is NOT what’s in my head!”. This mismatch may be because of internal and external expectations.

When this happens, writers often retreat — to hone their skills or battle these expectations.

Sometimes writers give-up all together.

But, when a writer is patiently persistent — if they hone their skills, say “FUCK OFF!” to the external expectations, and approach their internal expectations with loving compassion — sometimes magic happens.

That idea can develop a life of its own and transcend what the writer originally intended.

And when the idea takes on a life of its own — through story, through character, through setting — it needs to be set free.

I’m very pleased to be able to finally share with you something I’ve been working on for a long time.

This is the first book in a trilogy. I hope you enjoy!

In separate worlds, Cary and Simone are each backed into a corner: Fate has delivered a life-or-death timeline within which each must deal with past trauma and external pressures. Alone, each is reluctant to surrender to their circumstances; together, they discover options. Will they fight or surrender? Or will they find another way all together?

  1. Ha. Sometimes I write as crappily as I can, to battle those exact thoughts. And the weird thing is, the final product is always not as bad as I had imagined. Anyway, congrats on finishing your book. Wishing you all the best for it!


    • Thanks kindly, Stuart! I greatly appreciate your comments. You made a couple really good points: to keep going and to see, in hindsight, that what comes out really isn’t all that bad. I think we all have similar thoughts and similar battles. The trick is to find strategies that work for us, and it sounds like you’ve got it! Good luck on your own journey.
