To say I like to go against the grain is quite an understatement. I actively look for ways to be different from everyone else. Mostly to my detriment. I have sabotaged myself so many times, it’s embarrassing to think about. Yet looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. The mistakes I’ve made have helped forge... Continue Reading →
More Than One Game In Town.
Comics are great, but let's not forget their big brother, books. There’s almost nothing I love more than to sit down and read a comic book. Comics are, when done right, some of the greatest pieces of art you and I can own. When you combine an artist with phenomenal skill and a writer who... Continue Reading →
Dismissing your fan base-Revisited
Will they ever learn? This could be an unpopular opinion. It was a little over a year ago when I wrote a blog talking about writers using their platform to push unpopular agendas in their writing and on their social media accounts. It pains me to report that things are still bad. Some have even... Continue Reading →
Dialing it in…slowly.
I’m trying to find my niche for this blog. I’m a huge comic book fan. The book I wrote(it’s with the editor as of this writing) was conceived as an idea for a comic book. It’s safe to say comics have been a major influence on my life. I’ve been reading a lot of “how-to”... Continue Reading →
Dismissing your fan base
This could cause me to lose followers (not that I have many now) but being a writer who leans left is becoming something of a cliche. As of this writing I have over 1200 followers and the majority identify as leftist. You can’t tell me there are no conservative sci fi writers out there. I’m... Continue Reading →
The cockpit filled with smoke as Captain Ray Braxton scrambled to put out the fire. For everyone he extinguished, another came to life. He glanced at the viewscreen hoping to see where his runaway ship was going, but it showed only a pattern of black and white lines before it exploded. The captain shielded his... Continue Reading →
Life is Hard…Read.
This might cause me to lose points with some people, but I write because the world needs to be entertained. Not scolded. I don’t write to explore the human condition or to point out all the atrocities being caused by large, faceless corporations and/or governments. I’m not trying to start a revolution or cause people... Continue Reading →
Inspiration. It’s that intangible thing that hits everyone from time to time. Most of us recognize it but don’t do anything with it. Some jump at it and start using it but they end up fizzling out just as quick. Then there are those who grab hold of it with both hands and wrestle it... Continue Reading →
The holidays are behind us and a brand new year is ahead of us. How are you going to tackle 2020? I’m still working on figuring that out. I’m 90% done with the first draft of my book. Time has gotten away from me. Between the holidays, work and family obligations finding time to write... Continue Reading →
A Welcome Diversion
This weekend I took a break from writing to work on another project. Something I haven’t done in a while that needed my attention. Organizing my comic book collection. Comic books sparked my imagination and set me on my path of writing. While I started writing later than most the seeds were planted way back... Continue Reading →
