Author’s Advice Pt. 10

It’s NEVER too late to start over. Are you working on a piece you’ve just lost all love for? Are you writing something that you really didn’t want to write in the first place? Do you really not care whether your newest piece get’s done or not? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, STOP! Close out of what your writing … Read More Author’s Advice Pt. 10

Free Exchange of Ideas…

Can I just ask… what the heck happened? When I first published my work, I got a lot of comments from readers, both positive and negative. Divinity in particular got positive and negative comments from die-hard Christians and atheists, and I don’t understand the negativity. I certainly can’t speak for the rest of the world, so if it’s different outside of the U.S. PLEASE … Read More Free Exchange of Ideas…

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

IV   Tom kept himself in seclusion during the next few days. He went to class as much as he needed to in order to get by, but other than that, he barely came out of his room. Both Greggor and Jayme came by to see him often, but he almost never opened the door. He slowly became oblivious to the world around him. … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 4

Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

I admittedly was a little hesitant to address this one because of the weight and political biases that go with it. So let me preface by saying that I don’t care who’s a republican or a democrat, man or woman, black, white, asian, etc. If you enjoy reading, you’re all right by me. In Magnifica, Lia’na is often abused for being an elf. Both … Read More Personal bias, dislike, and hatred.

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

III   Weird things began to happen over the next few weeks. Toby and Lia’na disappeared and Gishan wouldn’t talk about it. He walked around like he was a dead man and barely even talked to anyone. One day at lunch, Tom was sitting with Greggor and Jayme when Gishan came in. Tom was talking to Jayme, “Did you hear about what happened in … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt 3

Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 2.

(So I’ve decided that this sequel has pretty much lost all steam. I’m going to give my readers what I have… but this is never getting published. I’m instead focusing on Taryn’s story.) II The next day, Tom got up for class, though he wasn’t really up for it. It was late in the afternoon and he had been lazing around most of the … Read More Magnifica: The Lost Sequel Pt. 2.

What makes bad people tick?

As a writer, this is something that I’ve explored for a long time now. Why does a bad person become bad? Why do they do bad things, what is the motivation? Just the other day, I was walking to my car from work. I was wearing my normal leather jacket. In Boston it’s very cold at this time of year. As I neared the … Read More What makes bad people tick?

Angels

You will notice that I am hesitant to call angels ‘mythological creatures.’ This is mostly because of my christian belief… so I do actually think they truly exist. What is an angel? Simply put, an often-winged creature that is a servant of a God. Their jobs include messenger, voice, soldier, guide, and many more. Unfortunately, most depictions of angels are not accurate per the … Read More Angels

Half-elf description

I’ve looked through the different works and various forms of elves and what their half-breed children are like. Half Breeds in some stories look like their human parent, almost completely and I’ll explain why below… In other stories, they are mixed, though in most, they have slightly pointed ears, but otherwise look like humans. So far, there is one consistency; elven genes are recessive … Read More Half-elf description

Don’t write while sick…

I’m not kidding. Write when you’re sad, it’s when the best poetry comes out, often. Write when you’re angry… you’ll be surprised how much you get done rage writing… though you may have a lot of editing to do. Write when you’re frustrated, it’s therapeutic to take out your frustrations on your characters who have done nothing wrong to you. Yes, write in most … Read More Don’t write while sick…

Killing off a Character…

This is a tough thing to do sometimes, unless you’ve set that character up to die from the start. If you have an Obi Wan Kenobi just waiting to be sacrificed for the main character’s development, that’s one thing, but what about a character whom you may not have initially intended to kill off? What about a character that’s had significant development and may … Read More Killing off a Character…
