Laugh more or else

You don't laugh enough. No, stop that. Listen to me - you don't laugh enough. You need to laugh more to enjoy life. Trust me, it works.

Am I talking to you? Not really. I'm talking to myself. And, yes, I am crazy, but you and I both knew that. I decided a short while ago that I was taking life too seriously. Not anymore.

Myself told myself to find one thing funny every day and it would improve my outlook on life. So that's what I'm doing. Oh, I'm still writing. I am working on the Four Years from Home sequel and another shorter piece about the end of the world, or something like that. But I am making time every day to find something that makes me laugh and I'm posting it on my Facebook Author Page here -> 

Here's a sample of something I found funny. I made it up, so I call it my funny thing, because it's mine.

Its harshest critics say PIPA is unenforceable...

Follow my on Facebook. Laugh it up, fuzzball.

Am I Working on a Sequel?

A question many have asked (if you count 3 as many). I am indeed working on a sequel to Four Years from Home. After kicking around some ideas and writing two semi-failed attempts over the last year, I am well into the next sequel try - a kind of sequel to the third power.

Some I have discussed the process with feel that writing a sequel is as simple as this:

But I have broken down the actual process into three steps and dramatically visualized it here for you:

1. Implanting the seed.
2. Hatching the idea.
3. Living with the gross.

But, in the end, it is the writer who must be happy with the effort and the results, and the writer who must at all times keep in mind that no matter how good something is there will always be critics.
