Finding inspiration

Some great tips in this article.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novel Little Man, and the Dixon County War a huge success! It’s gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And don’t forget to check out my newest novel (Sold Out). It’s already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

  1. Thanks for the link. Funny, but my own advice to someone in turmoil is often just “Breathe”.

    • Breathing is the right advice. Read in a Shaolin book the other day that focusing on just your next breath is how ancient warriors used to control pain.

      And it’s been passed down to our culture. Doctors teach women breathing exercises prior to them giving birth.

    Awesome link Stan. Lots of good advice. I especially like the idea of finding inspiration in other peoples problems. That’s one big reason why people surf the net — looking for answers to their problems.

    • Glad it helped, Phillip! And I’m glad I can finally call you by your name — after you outed yourself the other day on your blog.

      Calling you Beatbox was getting a little old, and when I type that word, my Jarhead brain thinks “Beat box” and I imagine an order coming down from my drill instructor and I find myself running through the house, having leaped from my chair in search of a box to attack before my brain even has realized what it has done.

      Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but it’s late and my deadline tonight (after last night’s investor meeting), topped with an exhausting night walk (for my dog) while I was weak and hungry has left me woozy.

      [And yes, all that should be rewritten and polished, but I don’t have it in me… You get the gist of it.]
