Opinion vs. Fact

So recently I’ve come across many blogs and other writings that are attempting to pass off their opinion as fact. Several different subjects have come up pertaining to politics, nutrition, etc. In my writing, I feel it’s always important to distinguish between the two. If I’m sighting fact, I’ll give a source and say it’s a fact. If I’m giving an opinion, I’ll make … Read More Opinion vs. Fact

Author’s Advice Pt. 6

Leave the politics at the door. I was initially hesitant about writing this one, running the risk of being ironic, so I’ll apologize in advance if any of my own political beliefs make their way into this post (I am trying hard to prevent it!) Now what do I mean by this? Well put it this way… have you ever gone to see a … Read More Author’s Advice Pt. 6

The Devil in the Pages: How to Play Devils Advocate #Writing #Author #Advice

Hi Jim, I saw that you give out writing advice and was hoping you could help me. See I’m taking my first shot at writing a political satire story, but am finding it increasingly difficult to write from the perspective of someone I don’t agree with. It’s getting very hard to write without sounding superficial or condescending. Do you have any suggestions? Best- Maria … Read More The Devil in the Pages: How to Play Devils Advocate #Writing #Author #Advice

Please stop giving the Royals Attention! #EpsteinDidntKillHimself #ABC #AirTheInterview #Megxit

Readers, this is not a post about writing advice. If that’s what you’re here for, please feel free to browse my site. For everyone interested… Some may consider this a breakage of my self-imposed rule of being a bastion of escapism where people of all walks of life are welcome and politics is not. If you feel that is the case, I’m sorry for … Read More Please stop giving the Royals Attention! #EpsteinDidntKillHimself #ABC #AirTheInterview #Megxit

Moral Guardians, Why They Should Be Ignored

I don’t usually get involved in politics or social issues on here, save for the occasional effects it has on geek culture and for good reason. Most of us are looking for an escape from such issues. However, there has been a major trend recently where such issues have invaded nearly every facet of our existence, including unfortunately, our escapism. As such, it would … Read More Moral Guardians, Why They Should Be Ignored

The Reality of Child Sex Trafficking Rings…

Originally posted on James Harringtons Creative Work:
… I don’t want to post this. I REALLY don’t want to post this. As all of you know, a lot of my writing advice and posts lately have been about the realities and forms of evil. Well if you remember yesterday, I posted about just how rare true evil actually was, and how sometimes even the…

Marvel Comics Endsong…

Perhaps it’s time for Marvel to consider ceasing production of its comics. I think we’ve gotten to that point. They’ve pretty much proven that they don’t know what they’re doing anymore or they’ve taken on the disastrous business model of trying to appeal to extreme political ideologues who are too busy being offended by things to read comics. I mean it’s bad enough that … Read More Marvel Comics Endsong…

Top 10 Internet Trolls

I recently looked at the rules of the internet and made a shocking discovery; there was no rule that specifically states ‘If it exists, it will be trolled. No exceptions.’ I suppose that’s why there are still people out there that still think the stuff they post will not somehow get trolled. For that reason, I’ve compiled a list of the most humorous trolls … Read More Top 10 Internet Trolls

Star Trek Discovery: The Elephant in the Room

I’ve really wanted to tackle this one for a while, but the issues with Discovery seemed a lot more wide-spread than just the show. As a result, I had to address the more global issue first. To give a little background into my experience with Star Trek, I started off watching seasons 2-3 of The Next Generation. Then my father introduced me to Wrath … Read More Star Trek Discovery: The Elephant in the Room
