I must admit, though, I’ve heard a voice in the distance. I think I can detect a southern drawl. What might be a few opening lines to the first page are emerging. I think. Not sure yet. The space between projects, that open-ended period, can serve as an incubator for creative imaging.(less)

You cannot write effectively if they are screaming in your ear. You must find a way to keep them out of hearing range.
Also, I try not to simultaneously write and edit during the draft stage. It is impossible to create and edit at the same time. There will be time later to rewrite....and rewrite....and once again, rewrite.(less)

“Never give anyone permission to hurt your feelings. Always face them by standing up for what is right and you will feel strong. If you do not stand strong, people will pity you, and then you lose something adults call dignity. Never accept pity. No one on earth is better than anyone else.”
John J. Siefring, An Important Day

“Charles, we should never stop pretending. Pretending can lead to wishing. Wishing then leads to hoping. Hoping then moves to dreaming. Dreaming can then lead to planning. If we are lucky, some plans come true.”
John J. Siefring, An Important Day

“It was as if some manual was handed out one day, a manual of instructions about complicated social situations. But I wasn't there the day they handed it out. The worst part was, nobody even told me it was distributed. It was like, they kept it secret from me.”
John J. Siefring, An Important Day

“We read to know we're not alone.”
William Nicholson, Shadowlands

“It’s perhaps best we don’t always know that we have approached a space and time when what we say or do is so crucial as to possibly determine the direction another life will take.”
John J. Siefring, Caleb's Window
