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…

This is the 4th installment of my series… or rather part of it. Whether or not it will be published, remains to be seen… Let me know what you think. I could use some encouragement to finish… I have another potential sequel also in the works. I I‘ve never been able to get passed what happened. It still seems like something out of a … Read More Magnifica… the lost sequel…

Dwarves

So I’ve talked in great detail about one of the main feature races to my story, elves… but what about dwarves? Physical description.  So there are various descriptions of them. Most agree that they have long beards, are very stout, deceptively strong, and seem to have an odd fixation with mining. Other descriptions suggest noses and ears that match, or are even larger than … Read More Dwarves

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?

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…

Divinity Background

Hi All, I hope that you’re all as psyched for the release of Divinity as I am. I’ve received a bunch of emails asking about the release… arguably a lot more than I expected, so let me thank you for that beforehand, that’s awesome! My answer is… soon, very soon. I’m just trying to work out a few bugs with the production of the … Read More Divinity Background

Why do books not always translate well to movies?

It’s not always the easiest question to answer. A lot of things go into making the jump from the written word to the big screen. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it doesn’t. Some stories weren’t ever meant to be turned into movies while others seem like they were made for it. Let’s explore some of the reason why a book may not translate well: … Read More Why do books not always translate well to movies?

Can fictional stories be harmful?

Unfortunately, I have to say yes… hesitantly. Fictional stories can absolutely be harmful if taken the wrong way or interpreted incorrectly. A good example would be many of the Bible stories. The Bible was a good written by man for man. I can’t speak to who wrote the old testaments or how, but the new testament, at least as far as the Gospels are … Read More Can fictional stories be harmful?
