Pokemon: Route 1

Pokemon: First Steps Linda and Ty were off in the tall grass. Kess wanted to just have time with Mizu. “What do you think we should do next? Move on?” He sat down and pulled out a rice ball and his map. “Looks like…

Pokemon: First Steps

Kess sat on the hill overlooking Pallet Town. The sun was rising, with just enough wind to make the trees rustle. It would be fall soon, the lush green turning countless colors before being stripped of the trees, scattered across the landscape as dark…

How to Read a Book

You know those book titles that you hear and go, “No. They didn’t.” But then you look more carefully and truly they did. For your entertainment and amazement I introduce you to How to Read a Book. I found this prolifically titled book from the…

Chasing Marowak

The other day, my coworkers came into my office. “Paul, look what we caught! Have you ever seen a Pokemon like this? It’s a marowak. But on fire!” I’ve seen this before, it wasn’t that exciting to me. I put it out of my mind…

Monstrous Inspirations

The Mute of Abr takes place in the city of Abr, far away from Lake G’desh, where Drowning the Sands of G’desh takes place. Where religion is everything at the lake, in Abr they are animistic, praying to the sand, mountains, and salt. The salt, the…

Egromancer

Egromancer was Sir Richard Burton’s way of saying necromancer. It was based on Middle English forms of the word. He uses it in his translation of Arabian Nights. The egromancer shows up often in the stories. They don’t have specific powers. A horse can fly? That’s…

Loving Christ First

My girlfriend, Dana, was over with her daughter this weekend. It was the first time I saw Dana since we started dating, and the second time I saw her in person since knowing her for the past three or four years. She stayed with…

Difficulties of being too nice

Am I too nice, or do I not like conflict? I mean, some conflict I embrace. I think I hate conflict when I’m powerless. My job requires me to often be the messenger. While the messenger has no power of the message, they’re often…

What is your why?

Read a book recently. What?! How could I? Starting with Why. The book is written by Simon Sinek. I found him accidentally on Facebook. For whatever reason, likely his why, I was enthralled. He spoke about leaders getting the last word. Sit there, listen…

The Trials of Writing

Writing is a multitasking sport and I’m failing hard on it. Why, you ask? Because here is my massively neglected blog. My other blog, tied implicitly to my novels, is just as neglected. This needs to change. I’ve been doing a great job of…
