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…

Memoirs

I’m writing a story about Autumn for an anthology. I was going with an urban fantasy detective story. Then I thought about some cute love story. However, while in a meeting my mom placed in front of me “Writer’s Digest.” What was the focus?…

The Workout Chronicles: Day 1

I went to the gym today. It has been months since my last visit. I decided to try swimming. I arrived at 9:15 and was in the pool by 9:20. The lifeguard was kind and asked the kids to leave lane three so I…

What Floor?

Joel and I got in the elevator. He asked, “What floor were we on?” I did some math. That morning we got on the elevator with a gorgeous blond woman. She had to stop at floor three, which was two floors below where we…

Only Electricity

“It’s only electricity,” I say over and over. It was meant to remain in my head, but I could hear the words escape my lips. No one else cared. Caked in mud, their bodies to the point of nearly collapsing, lungs inhaling and exhaling…

Evil Dreams

I am at my brother’s house, in his basement, sleeping on his couch, which I’ve done numerous times before. It’s been years since I’ve had nightmares, as well. Let me clarify that to me, nightmares are simply intense dreams from which I can still…

Humanizing Settings

While reading Clash of Kings, pondering how Mr. Martin writes, I had an epiphany which dealt with his settings. In the beginning of the book, Mr. Martin has an old man walking through a castle. This simple act is given considerable attention, and I was…

I See the Finish Line

It’s right there in front of me. I just got back the edits from my publisher. I have a lot to work in, but I’m hoping in one or two weeks it’s done and then I wait for the 12 weeks until they publish…

Meeting new people is the same as meeting new characters

Aside: Kelst and Ayne was searched on Google! One of the hits I received was from that. Epic. Those two crazy kids are gaining some traction. Writers are generally a more insular group. Introverts gain their energy with alone time, or only hanging out…

Insanity: Month 2

I reached it. Really it’s week 6 in the work out and I’m on more like week seven and a half. I was excited. Yesterday with the fit test I drove myself into the ground, but I did amazing. Today I didn’t feel sore…

Prologues, what are they good for?

In the very first iteration of my story I had about two pages dedicated to giving a brief history on the world. After reading Game of Thrones and fighting through the story to explore the world, I felt that was fun. I enjoyed having to puzzle…
