In my previous blog post, where I talked about my current goals for 2019, I briefly mentioned some of the goals I wanted to achieve for my current work-in-progress “Forget Me Not, Father.” In a nutshell, The goal is to finish the rough draft and publish it this year. But I want to get more specific about the process I am thinking of doing as I work towards self-publishing my first book.
It has been a long time since I last wrote a blog post, made a YouTube video, recorded a podcast, and even taken the time to work on my current work-in-progress. And there is a good reason for it. The last half of 2018 turned into a whirlwind of events that have made my life extremely hectic. Right now, I feel like there is a large clock hanging around my neck reminding me how much time I have before certain things happen. And so, I have a number of goals I will be completing in 2019, and will briefly talk about, in order to deal with some major changes in my life.

Since it is October, I have been wanting to write something Halloween-themed. Then I remembered that I had written a rough draft for a short story about a man being hunted by a vampire. Now, I had written this a long time ago for a series of vampire novels I had conceived of. This particular story, however, was more of a standalone for the world that I had started to create and was more an exercise in trying to write a story that would convey dread and fear that happened to include a vampire which I titled Hunted Under the Light of the Moon.
So I know that I have been wanting to blog on a consistent basis, but that continues to elude me right now as life continues to throw curveballs at me. In episode 14 of the Knight Writer Podcast, I will talk about some of those problems but, for now, this is the companion piece to episode where I will talk about Creating Dialogue for “Forget Me Not, Father.”
Aspiring author Sean D Knight discusses the importance of public libraries and how they are still a writer’s most valuable resource. Especially for new and struggling writers. Whether it is to research topics for your book, learn new things, or even to promote and sell your book.

Right now I am in my third week at a new job where I lay down commercial tile and carpet for businesses. It has been an interesting experience to say the least, though a taxing one. The impact on my body has been immediate. Sore shoulders, stiff back, sore shins, and sore hands. The sore hands was not something I expected, which has made it even more of a pain to do any typing. Right now, as I adjust to the job, lack of free time, and the pain, I find myself so physically exhausted when I get home that I can not bring myself to do any writing.
