Resolutions and/or Goals
First of all, you need a plan. I'm sure you've heard the ads from NordicTrack that incline training burns more fat faster than just about any other type of training. I have a NordicTrack incline treadmill myself, and I love it. But did you know that you can do the exact same type of training without one?

Regular treadmills often go up to 15% incline and that's plenty steep enough for most training goals. You can also use stairs, box stepping, and hill running. I wrote a book about how to succeed at incline training, and I want you to have a free paperback copy of it worth $26.55. That's the current price that Amazon is charging today CLICK HERE for deta…

World Wide Otaku Day - Dec 15

Otaku subculture is a central theme of various anime and manga works, documentaries and academic research. The subculture began in the 1980s as changing social mentalities and the nurturing of otaku traits by Japanese schools combined with the resignation of such individuals to become social outcasts. The subculture's birth coincided with the anime boom, after the release of works like Mobile Suit Gundam before branched into Comic Market. The definition of otaku subsequently became more complex, and numerous classifications of otaku emerged. In 2005, the Nomura Research Institute divided otaku into twelve groups and estimated the size and market impact of each of these groups. Other institutions have split it further or focus on a single otaku interest. These publications classify distinct groups including anime, manga, camera, automobile, idol and electronics otaku. The economic impact of otaku has been estimated to be as high as ¥2 trillion ($18 billion).[4] -- WIKI

My Sweet Infected - more inspiration

Who remembers that anime was a heavy influence in the creation of my dystopian young adult romance "My Sweet Infected" featuring an interesting angle on a romantic triangle?

I think of Emma, the protagonist, as an alter ego, since a great deal of the time spent writing was more like a psychic channeling the voice of the character, rather than methodically going over a spreadsheet analyzing character traits. It is probably a much more authentic approach, imho.

"I can’t even imagine how a girl could do that. I admire that. I could never ever …” Her voice trailed off as she carefully reached out and touched the edge of my hair where it was tucked behind my ear. Her eyes displayed a confusing array of emotions as her fingers plucked at the short ends. Maybe there were stringy clumps of blood between the strands. --   Chapter Six - MORE HERE

Sweet Infected Relationships

In my book "My Sweet Infected" there is a romantic triangle that is a bit unusual compared to most Young Adult Dystopian novels out today.

Here are some related quotes from my 5-Star Reviews on Amazon:

-great emotional depth between the characters of Porter, Emma and Linda-burying your head back inside of the book pages for the steaminess of the Emma-Porter-Linda love triangle-now I have to know what becomes of Emma, Porter, and Linda!

A quote from the book from one side of the triangle:

“Sounds like it. I can’t even imagine how a girl could do that. I admire that. I could never ever …” Her voice trailed off as she carefully reached out and touched the edge of my hair where it was tucked behind my ear. Her eyes displayed a confusing array of emotions as her fingers plucked at the short ends. Maybe there were stringy clumps of blood between the strands. -- Chapter 4
And from another side of the triangle:

I pulled Porter back outside and closed the door. Emotions spilled from him in…

Greatest pages of your story ...

The Greatest Pages of Your Story Have Yet to be Written -- Meme


I think this was meant as an inspirational message. It was to imply that the best days of your life were yet to come.

I like to think of it from the viewpoint of an author. In that case you could take it literally, rather than figuratively. Somewhere out in time and space, your best work is yet to come.

I do recognize that my own work has improved tremendously with each book. My favorite so far?
