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

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…

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

The Importance of Freedom of Speech

Okay… You would think that such a post would be unnecessary, you would think that people would understand why a universal right to express your opinion is so vital to a free society… nay one of its truest cornerstones. Once again, you would be going backrupt on your estimation of societal intelligence. Don’t get me wrong, the majority of people out there are fairly … Read More The Importance of Freedom of Speech

Meaningful Quote.

Lifted from BleedingCool.com: “Publishers, get your politics out of my stores! We live in a climate of polarity, with people being violently opposed to issues and events. Note the word “violently” and then think about what you’re bringing to our stores.  With every new proclamation from either the White House or CNN we have a new round of vitriol coming from the opposing side.  … Read More Meaningful Quote.

You Want More Trump? (Part 2)

Yeah Marvel is at it again… no narrative, no use of metaphor, no nothing… just straight up preaching and political activism. So glad I stopped collecting marvel. What’s more, it’s a false narrative based on hate and fear mongering. The ban isn’t a muslim ban. It’s a travel ban against nations that harbor terrorism. That’s all. There are plenty of other countries that Muslims … Read More You Want More Trump? (Part 2)
