A Glimmer of Hope

With the election less than a week away, I being the moderately liberal Democrat that I am has a glimmer of hope it will actually go the way of the polls. But also, I have a better glimmer hope going on that is something I brought up last week with my A Man’s Passion project.

Last Tuesday I received the revised and hopefully final proof before it ultimately goes to print. I sent the edits back to them Wednesday night and am waiting anxiously for their reply. As you can imagine, I’m optimistic about this and hope good things happen as a result.

If this book does equal literary and financial success, it won’t mean I sit on my laurels and glory upon my pedestal. What it means is more work and perhaps more opportunities down the road. I have in my possession many first drafts that need revision, reedits and rewrites. I’m certain at least two of those manuscripts will never see the light of day based upon the reaction I received from my beta reader. The others I think have a decent chance of getting looked over by the submissions board.

I also have in my mind a kernel of an idea that if put to paper and worked on will also be popular. Changeling is what I’m calling this project. I don’t have all the details, and I need to do a lot of research into this, but it will be based upon a creature who changes into any number of beasts, animals, plants, or humans by simply imagining that in his mind.

Like I said I need to research other cultures’ beliefs in this phenomenon which has evolved over the ages through mythology and folk lore. It’s how gods were created eons ago. Perhaps even actual historical people such as Jesus Christ might have been such a creature. I’m just throwing that out there.

I'm a prospective writer with an unassuming job working as a janitor at a tribal casino near Spokane, Washington. Writing is my passion, though my family seem to think I'm wasting my time. This is fine; their expectations of me are low and they tend to leave me alone in my office writing out my stories of mystery and suspense. I have a BA in English with emphasis in professional writing from Washington State University, my website: www.jerryschellhammer.com is available for everyone to see my list of writing accomplishments and hopefully buy my first published book, or my many short stories available on Amazon.
