Upcoming Posts


I've got several things planned for the next few weeks. Editing and revising of my third short story is almost complete. The final version of that will be published here. I ended up creating some interesting characters in that story. I am hoping I can write some other stories with them. I will add some character notes and draft versions of that story over on Patreon.

I will also post some other shorter stories I have started here on my blog. Maybe if there is any interest in them here, I will get motivated to finish more of them.

In the meantime I have been trying to do some kind of writing at least three times a week, daily writing being the end goal there. After my third short story is finished, I plan on going back to work on my novel. That was the whole reason I started this. I have an idea for a novel involving time travel, or more precisely, changes to the timeline. During the process I have come up with ideas for two other books. One will be non-fiction and related to reality being a simulation. The other book has to do with the future of man-kind as we advance and begin exploring space.

Good bye for now. I hope to post again soon.

Story Start: Survival At All Costs

This is a story about man-kind facing a disaster that would require making some hard choices. I will probably finish this or a similar story at some point. I also have some other ideas about different situations where people consider changing humans to better face challenges they come up against. Survival at all costs. What does that mean? No price is too high? Survival or the individual? Survival of the species? Survival of life on Earth? If Earth was threatened with destruction, what could we save? Given a deadline of a year, what would we choose to do to give our species, or any life, the best chance for survival. It has just been discovered that a small black hole is approaching our solar system. It will swing around our sun in about two years and disrupt the orbits of all the planets in our solar system. Scientists have calculated the approaching black hole will pull the Earth out into a higher orbit. In approximately a year's time, the surface of the Earth will become inhospi

Patreon Post and Other Updates

I haven't posted here or on Patreon for several months.  Hopefully this will be the start of some new posts. I posted on Patreon today also. I got an email from Patreon about a writers group that is going to be meeting once a week. This motivated me to post again. I'm also going to try attending those meetings. Hopefully that will keep me motivated to keep writing. That's all for today.

Jack Grapes

 I've been watching some interviews with a writer/actor named  Jack Grapes . The interviews are on a YouTube channel called Film Courage, but I also just found that he has a site here . He is very interesting to listen to and seems like an excellent teacher. He talks a lot about what he calls your deep voice. Basically, what I think it means is writing with your own voice, not trying to make it sound overly embellished, not using a lot of big words or over doing your descriptions. According to him, this style can be used, but it should be used sparingly throughout the writing. Switching into this style and back to your deep voice will make the writing interesting to the reader. I continuously learn new things. I will try to post some examples of my writing soon using this newly learned technique.
