Andrew Michael Miller’s Thought Backlog

Well, it's been a while. Last time I updated you, I was traveling the world. Since then, I have had a hard time deciding what to do next. I'm back in the saddle now and ready to share what's next. In short, I'm joining the Royal Road. First and foremost, I've done some research on the best ways to get my work out there. I've settled on a web community called Royal Road where a lot of hopeful writers share their work out there to hopefully start building a fan base. This is the part that I had hoped would have been achieved through organically building my blog, but the growth just wasn't where it needed to be by posting
We were able to stop at Ponta Delgada in the Azores despite the high winds and rain we encountered on the way in. I'm glad we did. A part of me had thought it would be nice to go past and continue on our way back toward home, but that was before I saw just how beautiful the city is. I really wish we had more time and better weather to explore more of this place. Even though the streets were dead due to the weather and the fact that it's a Sunday in the off-season, we still got a good chance to walk through a big chunk of it. It felt kind of like a Disney resort with how
Today is either the last break between European ports before we are sea or it's an early start to our long journey across the Atlantic. The winds will decide our fortune for tomorrow as we near the Azores. As for today, it was not bad. There were some surprises, a lot of the familiar and a whole lot of ocean. The first surprise was how well we all slept last night. After passing Gibraltar the night prior and suddenly being woken up to drawers being opened and closed rapidly, we thought we were in for it for the rest of the trip. That would certainly make the remainder of the trip a slog. Thankfully, Kiley thought to pack painters tape
Today started out a little shaky, literally. I suppose we should probably expect it now that we are now settled in a much bigger body of water than the Mediterranean. We all woke up somewhere around four a.m. to some turbulent waters. Drawers were opening and shutting on their own. The bed was shaking quite a lot. It was pretty difficult to get back to sleep, and that kind of started us off on an energy deficit as we began our journey into Lisbon. I didn't have a lot of expectations for Lisbon. I have heard that Portugal is a haven for expatriates, so I was curious if Lisbon would grab us. Knowing no Portuguese, where in Italy, France and
Cadiz, Spain, located close to the strait of Gibraltar, is a southern point of the Iberian peninsula. Because of this, it stays fairly warm all year long. Today was no exception. In fact, it was our warmest day of our journey so far, reaching 70 degrees fahrenheit at the warmest point of the day. We lounged around a bit outside and Declan and I even hit the pool after the day's events. More on that later. This was my favorite port so far, as we didn't have to take a bus to get into the city. Our ship was just right there at the side of the island, less than five minutes walk from getting off the ship to being

  1. I believe in your books! You know that. The characters are always fully developed and have great backstoried. My most recent favorite character was Art. I always looked forward to the chapters where he was featured. I suppose the only constructive criticism I could offer is to write shorter chapters. This is mostly for the people who only have a few minutes to read at a time.

    I also think that you would be great at writing a blog about your life in general. Experiences before you married, as well as the ones you are having now with a wife and child. You have good insight into things and always add humor, which I love so much.
