Writing’s been great lately. I’m accomplishing goals that I set for myself on New Years Day by writing daily. I’ve sent out a children’s book, hoping a publisher accepts it, and now a magazine article sent to a couple of prestigous magazines and generally keeping the whole writing process close to me. I’ve been feeling like a rockstar with my confidence booming. Last night I was with a couple friends and this other person from my past started saying things about me. I don’t know why, but started with the same bullying comments, stirring up old feeling of self doubt from the old person I thought I left behind. I just couldn’t write that night and couldn’t find that writer either, so I didn’t. It’s a negative creep, destroying hopes and dreams like the way cancer does.


About writingtonight

I am a writer living in Cincinnati, Ohio with my wife Colleen. We have two children; Noah who lives in Norwich, New York and a daughter Katie, living with her family in Alexandria, Kentucky. She has blessed us with two adorable grandchildren. I have written a memoir adventure called A Photo-Finish while living and working in Yellowstone National Park, a fantasy short story Magnolias and my latest, a potty training book It Can Happen Anywhere. I attended 2 years at Suny Morrisville College where one of my favorite authors attended and taught, John Gardner. I will always write arduously looking for the truth my characters reveal to me in their stories. Randall Johnson

  1. That friend is NO true friend
    Btw I wanted to let you know of a certain book (free for now) that has really helped me keep going with the blogging gig.
    I really think it might add to your blogging experience greatly.
    It’s here:
    Look for it on the end of the page or on Victor’s Books.
    The book is called: The Blog Artist Handbook.
    I believe he will sell it, but it is free right now (only need to subscribe to his newsletter/email).
    Let me know your thoughts on it 🙂
