I have finally begun writing seriously again. I have picked up an unfinished prose work which was formerly untitled and is now published under the title, Comings and Goings; the chapel in the woods. You can read this on BookRix.com under my name. I have a number of other books there as well, including my first foray into children’s books, The Adventures of Chris Mouse, under a new nom de plum, Uncle Wayne. Please read and comment on these and any others posted there.
Some of the books I’ve posted on BookRix are older works, usually “re-worked” for publication. I have included the and some Advent candle lighting devotionals.
I am still looking for editing and proofreading opportunities – not counting those of my own and those of my peers. I would really like to make, at least, a little money at it. Although I do enjoy doing it!
These posts seem to be few and far-between these days, but having retired, and having expectations of having more time, turned out to be more of the same and much less interesting than I had anticipated. But I do enjoy not having to get up at 5:30 every morning unless for some reason I choose to do so.
Keep your responses coming and I will try to stay on top of those, too.
I have made the mistake of trying to keep up with four blogs of my own. This does not allow me to concentrate much on any of them. I have vowed – to myself – to limit each of the blogs to the topics I originally intended it for. In addition to this one there are:
http://waynesopinions.wordpress.com “The Artist Within”
http://theartsspot.wordpress.com “The Arts Spot” and
http://wayneswisewords.wordpress.com “Wayne’s Words to the Wise”
http://followingpsalms.wordpress.com “Following the Psalms” (an interactive Bible study of Psalms)
“Wayne’s Words to the Wise,” for some reason, has become the major blog for just “everyday” blogging. I intend to try to keep this one, “Tilden Editing Services,” as a blog about writing and editing; mine and others I’m connected to, especially through http://www.LinkedIn.com.
Until it all gets straightened out, read my other blogs from the link, above. I will have them linked to this blog space very soon.
Without sounding like I’m making excuses, I’ve been very busy. The retirement application got mailed in, as did Social Security and it looks like we’ll be doing okay. If I should be able to add to that with a client or two (or more) through Tilden Editing Services, I won’t complain.
I began putting this together a few minutes ago but forgot to save it, so I am writing it again – except exactly different. And probably shorter.
I’ve been trying to keep two blogs up, my LinkedIn profile up to date, and I discovered “Hub Pages” which are sort of like literary blogs/web pages. Lots of fun and a good place to do a little writing and get some honest feedback from other writers. This may be something you may be interested in looking into for yourself.
I’m hoping now that we know we will be okay on my state pension + my Social Security + my wife’s Social Security, I know I can be looking for other outlets to freelance in other areas of interest; especially here in writing and editing. And I can always use clients.
