Some people know I write novels.
Here’s a problem I face every day.
One has to place a bit of priority to how you approach your day when keying in thirty or forty thousand words one character at a time. Any distraction will kill the flow of thought, the tempo of the story and if the distraction is strong enough, it will kill the creativity altogether.
Distractions come in many forms; traffic noises, the housekeeper’s kid, the television, or the neighbor’s loud music. Nothing is worse than my own FACEBOOK ACCOUNT!
My biggest distraction used to be my OZONE Business. Dealing with all facets of international laws, regulations, shipping, and actual assembly took copious amount of time. Since closing the business, I have more time and enough discipline to write several thousand words each day. Unfortunately, closing the business eliminated my income. Income that is needed to publish my books. Most don’t understand. It takes about Two-thousand USD to publish a book — not counting the printing costs.
So, I have a backlog of unpublished manuscripts:

Fifteen full novels are ready to enter the publishing process. The only manuscript that is in phase 3 — the editing process is WILSON’S WAR. All others except WILDERNESS COWBOY are residing in my hard drive waiting for funds to initiate the process. Any idea when I can find $30,000 to get these published?
