What I’m about to reveal will probably make me sound like a sociopath. Method Actors do it all the time and it seems accepted. However, for an author, because projects we work on can take months if not years…I understand why it might be difficult to maintain a relationship with us.
It’s been over a year since I’ve created a new story. In 2019, I was 32-years-old and after committing myself to books and screenplays for a decade, decided to commit myself to other aspects of adult life…like advancing in a corporate job, becoming a homeowner, and building relationships with real people. In that, 2019 was a success. I’ve progressed and accomplished everything I set out to do.
But still…Despite everything I’ve done, I confess that nothing on earth has given me greater pleasure than escaping to another world and writing down everything I see. I can’t overstate this enough. 2019 has been the longest I’ve gone without creating anything new, and while I am happy…I don’t feel fulfilled. Yes, I’ve written critical essays here and there…but fiction is where it’s at.
Everything else just seems ephemeral. I know that one day I will die and memories of me will fade. I’m just a tenant on this earth. The condo I bought will belong to someone else. My money and possessions will be given to someone else or discarded. And if last summer has taught me anything when a co-worker took his own life…people’s perception of who you are, is pretty much whatever they want it to be, regardless if it’s true. Continue Reading
I know people think that in the future we’ll have flying cars and teleportation machines. While it would be nice if people really thought about and poured money into those ridiculous problem-causing types of inventions, everyone knows that war has always been history’s biggest moneymaker. Sure ideas and ambition can drive men to strive for improvement. But in the year 2202, the people who really stand up to make a change…those people fully believe in the idea that fighting solves everything.
As expected, a lot has changed from 2012 to 2202. The United States, once a country built on democracy and expressed freedoms, has turned into a machine controlled by men who have never stepped foot in front of cameras. The ones dancing in front of podiums and giving manufactured speeches are puppets held by the strings of corporations and investors. The renaming of the United States of America to the United Empire of America was a joke. America is still one of the most influential countries in the world, but the real power comes from private corporations that act on their own independent constitutions.
Just in case you’ve happened to stumble on this website without me actually giving you a link to it, thanks for visiting, obviously.
But I wanted to let you know that I already have a boatload of content written and ready to be put up. But I’m kind of new towards the whole online publishing stuff. So, I’m taking my time and doing it right. Better so than going in haphazardly and what not.
I plan to start with the “Original Stories” Page.
I’m writing quick summaries of the stories I already have written and plan to put up. So far, I have five of them. And once you read the summaries, you’ll be drooling at the mouth to see more. But never fear. I work tirelessly to put it out there.
After I put up the summaries of the stories, I want to post the character bios of those stories in the “Character Bios” page. And its not just character bios, but I’ve also found photos of actors and famous celebrities who I’d cast if I were to make the stories into a live production. I did this to help stimulate your imagination so you can see the characters in your head when you’re reading about them. Alright! Here I go. I hope you’re rooting for me.
