The Three W’s

This weekend was incredible! I performed a wedding on Friday afternoon (Those who can’t play, coach. Those who can’t seem to find everlasting love, perform weddings)  followed by the usual karaoke night. I totally blew out my voice by singing Aerosmith’s Angel, but soon recovered to deliver Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue. It’s a fun life. Saturday, I met a new local author, had ten people show up to my Writers’ League meeting, caught some live music, and stayed up until dawn reconnecting with an old friend. Believe it or not, human interaction is needed from time to time. I don’t receive a ton of visitors to my tree house. Sunday? Recovery after reading my column in the Greenville Herald Banner (no more pre-publication review. I gave the editor full permission to correct my ranting). In addition, I spent all of Monday in the breathtaking home of a well known Dallas celebrity uninstalling and packing an intricate sculpture. Once I got home, I jumped straight into journalist mode to write next week’s newspaper contribution. The only downside to all of this was me neglecting my own personal writing for five straight days. Tonight, 1100 words flew from my fingertips with ease as I brought my upcoming novel, Extinguished, to life once again. I’m almost at the 75% mark and can’t wait to share it with the world. After that, I retired to my couch and began reading The Hunter Chronicles by Rick Parent. It’s a seventeen year recollection written by a man living with a wolf and the life lessons he learned by doing so. Before I knew it, I’d finished 100 pages! Sleep is beginning to overtake me but, in my delirium, I’m reminded of a jest stated by one of my co-workers today. She said my entire life has been about wolves, words, and women. Well, since you put it that way, she was absolutely right. I am obsessed with wolves and their family dynamic. I’m certain they’re the most majestic souls on the planet. As far as words are concerned, I hope I never run out of them to write. Women? That’s a sore spot…but I hope some day soon I’ll be with the last one I’ll ever need. Someone who sees me for who I am, accepts it, and decides to join me in my unique, loving lunacy rather than turn me into who they think I should be. I’m just waiting on ‘the’ sign. That scribbled, jumbled, ever elusive sign…

August HCWL Meeting A Success!

In the beginning…there was an idea. The idea became three. Now, the idea is ten and I couldn’t be happier! Founded in 2018 by C. Derick Miller and Patrick Harrison III, the HCWL has one mission: To bring writers together in fellowship and show support toward the growth of our art! Meetings are held monthly in various locations around Hunt County, TX! Our next meeting is 9.8.18 @5pm at The Texan Theater in Greenville, TX! Find out more here or on our Facebook Page!

Getting Married Soon?

Joining two people in marriage is one of the few joys I have in this life! Performing weddings since 2015, I became an Ordained Minister when same sex marriage was legalized. Due to the public outcry from many of the local J.P.’s, I didn’t think it was fair for two individuals in love not to have the opportunity to go the distance without being looked upon with outright hate! I’ve performed weddings for both traditional and same sex couples in various types of locations and extraordinary circumstances. If you have a marriage license, I will marry you in the State of Texas. I’ve even performed a wedding in a cemetery! My services are free of charge but donations are welcomed. If you’re interested in booking me for your wedding, please Contact Me.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…”

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Personally, I’ve always preferred the immortal words of the Apostle John, the Apostle Paul, the Apostle George, and the Apostle Ringo when they proclaimed in one voice “All you need is love, all you need is love, all you need is love, love, love is all you need!”
