Getting Closer

I started this post on January 9, and just found it floundering in my drafts. “Hey” I said, “you need to finish this.” “No wonder your followers haven’t heard from you in a while.” Plus, I’ve been stuck for a post idea, so, here ya go.

Back in October I decided to change course in my writing, and put my novel on hold. I like to tell stories, so I decided to type up some of them and do a memoir, instead. I’ve been working on putting a lot of them down and have about twenty of them ready for editing and formatting. I keep adding stories and adding stories, and I’m not sure that it’s not too many for one book. As I’ve been writing them down, I’ve discovered a pattern; they either talk about work or camping. I’ve about decided to write two memoirs, one for each topic.

I have been looking into Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) to self publish. I think this is a good way to get my foot in the door and start with a small project, before publishing a larger work, such as my novel.

My next step is to download the formatting/ publishing software, create a cover, set up my Broken Anvil Publishing LLC, create a logo and set up a bank account for the LLC. I’m still hoping to have the first book out by my birthday, April 18, and we’ll see how it goes from there.

Big THANK YOU to all of my followers. A a huge WELCOME to my new followers. I hope to keep rambling and have you enjoy what I write.

Hi, Y’all, I started my blog in September of 2017. A lot of stuff has happened since then, and I have added a lot of posts. I have recently purchased a domain – jimgblack.blog – through WordPress.com, who has been posting my blogs from the beginning, and so I am editing this post to bring it up to date. So…the title, Broken Anvil…what does it mean? I hear you asking. When I was younger my daddy used to say I could tear up an anvil, if I could ever get my hands on one. It wasn’t that I was a destructive little brat (depending on whom you ask), just very inquisitive as to how things worked. So, I would tear things apart to get to the insides. I just never could put them back together – hence the reason I’m not a surgeon. Anyway, I have often thought that Broken Anvil would be a good name for a lot of things, none of which I could ever get around to creating. So I figured, what the heck? Use it as the title for my blog. If you look at my profile, you will see that I started this venture to practice my writing and just have fun with it. I am starting my first book, and welcome any and all help, advice, tips, tricks and criticisms I can get. I hope you will read and follow my posts, and recommend me to others. My two biggest wishes are that I will become a better writer, and that you will just enjoy what you read. I have a lot of interests, and will write on a variety of things. Some serious. Some humorous. But always from the heart and my warped perspective on things. You can also follow me on Twitter and my writing page on Facebook, which I see needs a lot of serious work, by clicking on the social media icons found on each page. I hope you like what you see. If you do, please leave a like and/or a comment. And feel free to recommend my blog to others who might enjoy it.
