Coming soon from Lee Chambers

The Sum of Random Chance by Lee Chambers-July 2012

“The Sum of Random Chance” was hard to get into at first, but as you learn who the characters are, it picks up quickly. Cole is your everyday guy who wants something better out of life. He wants to and is willing to do everything it takes to become his dream job. Unfortunately, he has a hidden part of him that does not take into consideration of other’s feelings. His girlfriend, Erin, uses him for her own gain and also belittles him when he does not succeed. His job as a reporter is as dull as it could get while he deals with a co-worker who tries to do everything within his power to diminish what ounce of hope Cole has. While on an assignment, Cole comes across another woman named Sara, with a special ability to make people around her happier, at the local market.
Then, out of the blue, robbers come, but they are stopped by the police. Cole notices something different about this woman and decides to use the robbery story as a chance to boost his career. What he did not see was he ended up losing his job as well as his girlfriend. After moving into an apartment on his own, he reconnects with Sara and discovers who she really is. After a nearly destroyed friendship, Cole comes to a realization that all he had was not worth losing Sara over and tries to make amends. What happens will be up to the reader whether or not to find out.
A story of finding what is more important in life, it will boost anyone's spirits and give them hope that life is not always bad. That there are people like Sara who make a difference in everyday situations. We all want to be around people like her and are a rare treasure. This story brings us to those people and provides hope to those who experience hardships.
Well done, Mr. Chambers!

I have been thinking a lot about progression this past week, but what does one think of when they hear this word? To some, progression is achieving their small goals and raising them the next week and/or day. Others, progression comes at a much slower pace. Sometimes it comes over a month. With school, it can come within that semester or carry over to the next. Either way, at least for me and in my life, it is hard to recognize. Some days I will sit in a quiet room to reflect on what happened over the last month and try to see where I can improve. Likewise and unfortunately, during this time, I tend to also see the negative aspects more than the positive. Up until recently, it was easy to nit-pick out all of the mistakes that were done. It was simple to point out all the errors, but there was someone else who had shown me the good things about myself. She taught me about seeing the work that had been already done. She also revealed how to pick out the areas of progress. Since then and through personal struggle, progression is slowly starting to be recognized. Through the grace of God, as He allows me to become what he knows I can be, this has been awesome to see.

Being a writer is not the most easiest line of work. There are a lot of pressures placed upon his/her shoulders. One example is when the writer becomes a best-selling author and has to live up to that part of their work. Yes, hard to do but not impossible. One way or another it will happen because of the great support team that writer has to not allow the work to fail. Although, there is still much progression to becoming an all-time greatest author, so that is something, personally, to look forward to.
