Let me make this quick and to the point: I hate the idea of abortions. Yet, I also hate the idea of forcing a woman to be a brood mare. We are NOT breeding human beings against their will. We should be making it easier for people to make viable decisions in their lives including: … Continue reading Let Me Just Slap This Down Here…

Boo. HaHa! Kidding. I do feel kind of like a ghost though. I rarely post something outside of my own personal writing or now some of my old videos and link to where you can either find them available for purchase or just available to watch. The truth is, I've been in a funk lately. … Continue reading A Post From A Ghost
It's been a while since I've written any sort of poem. I'm feeling like a haiku today. Let me see if I can put one together then. In remembrance of lives long lived, a time more simple than today. In the places of Nippon where the mountains rise tall and the grasses are always moist … Continue reading A Haiku: The Mountains of Yore
I haven't written anything in like a month. Every time I think that I might, I get sidetracked by life demanding every little bit of my attention. My wife is pregnant and we're expecting a son come December. Sweetness. However, that means my time is devoted to working for that ever loving green dollar that … Continue reading The Corona Virus Isn’t Giving Up The Ghost (But It Sure Is Making Life Difficult To Live In)

I'm sure nobody here has ever had that problem. Chances are, you all have hundreds of readers every day and no fits and seizures ever affect your bottom line. And that is awesome! Amazing! Impressive! Awe inspiring! Yet, there are those of us who, for some reason, fail to resonate with more than a few … Continue reading What Do You Do When No One Wants To Read Your Work?
So, one of my least favorite authors is Chuck Wendig. Mostly because how he writes is a slow string of wording that dribbles on for too long and makes for a frustrating read. Let me offer up an example of what I'm talking about from the novel Star Wars: Aftermath. I will write the first … Continue reading That’s What He Said…
I've recently finished up my beta read and sent it off to the woman who wrote the book. It had some intriguing concepts but the execution left little to be desired. Hopefully my thoughts and comments will help her moving forward so that she can make the story what it's supposed to be. Now, I'm … Continue reading Time To Get Back To Work
Let me start by saying, I'm not a master communicator. I make errors in judgement. I take contextual clues out of context. I can mess up even the most benign conversations in a way that would make Donald Trump gag on his own reflexes. I freely admit it. I don't get other people. I never … Continue reading Clearly, I Don’t Understand Other Human Beings
