Thoughts on my Writing

Just a few random thoughts and observations on where I'm at with my writing these days.

  • I'm still not writing as much as I used to. Years ago I would get in nearly two thousand words a day. For the past few months I've been topping out at one thousand a night. Usually closer to five hundred. The trade off is that I've been writing consistently for a much longer time. I'm closing in on a year now. Before it was only for about a month or so then I'd stop writing for a few months. I seem to be pacing myself a little better.
  • I have multiple stories in progress at the same time. Usually three different stories going on. Right now that is the pulp hero story I'm working on for an upcoming anthology. Another Challenger Rangers story for the next collection of those I self-publish. And I just started a new series of Junior Challenger Rangers spin-off stories. At other times I have my sword and sorcery tales I'm telling. I've also done some writing on my own pulp horror/hero story. I'm working on a science fiction styled story as well.
  • I find having different things to write about is good. If I get stuck on one, I can take a break and work on one of the others for a little while.
  • I also don't see myself writing any actual novels. I'm most comfortable with the short story format. I've written novels in the past and I've never been happy with any of them. So for the time being I think the shorter stuff is what I'll stick to.

If you're interested in checking out my stuff it can be found at Amazon

I'm also looking into setting up a Patreon Page, but that is still in the future.

Cobra Convergence IV - The Cobra Commander

The head snake himself, Cobra Commander. The man behind Cobra since day one. The only true leader they ever needed. I decided to capture several of my favorite looks for him.

Cobra Convergence IV - Raptor

Raptor, Cobra's accountant who liked to dress up as a bird. I have a soft spot for this somewhat goofy character. I actually think his design is cool and I have long had a fascination with falconry.

Cobra Convergence IV - Crimson Guard

The classic Crimson Guard. My favorite Cobra soldiers. I am especially enthusiastic about the Fred versions of them from the comics.

Cobra Convergence IV - Baroness

For my first drawing of CCIV I chose the Baroness. In her original uniform from her first appearance in G.I. Joe #1. It's more common to see her in the black uniform so I wanted to add to the art out there of her in this one.
