Two Words

I was engaging in casual conversation with someone at work recently (no, I don’t make a living at writing; I have a “real” job) when out-of-nowhere this person flew into a tangent rage about how fictitious today’s news reporting is. “It’s all fake!” they claimed with extreme, vehement insistence.

Full Circle

I don’t believe in pre-determined destiny. The conscious and sometimes subconscious choices we make are what design our ultimate path (made up of a multitude of paths) and determine where we end up at any given moment. Have you ever looked back and connected the dots, the moments of your life that lead to where you’re at right now? It can be enlightening. Sometimes I do it on purpose. Sometimes it comes out of nowhere. […]

The Upside…?

I had intended to write this month a blog post laced with wit and levity in regards to the pandemic we currently find ourselves in. It was going to be in the form of a Top Ten List, a countdown citing the positive side to this tense and cautious time. […]

Inspiration can often be found at unexpected times, in unexpected places. While on a walk in a familiar neighborhood.  In the kitchen cooking dinner. Or while watching a talk show, on Bravo. […]

So, What’s Next?

Being a self-publishing author sometimes involves a bit of schizophrenia; the personality of a writer tends to differ from that of a publisher, and often the twain shall meet. […]

Once…or Twice

Like my last post, this one was inspired by a movie I recently watched. I’ll get to what movie that was in moment. First, I’d like to go on a bit about what I understand of literature. Specifically, the literary genre. […]

Q & A

I recently watched the movie Yesterday, hooked by the concept, and the fact that I’m a fan of The Beatles. It was a good film; strong performances from everyone in it. My one criticism is best summed up by the Rotten Tomatoes blurb, “…a sweetly charming fantasy with an intriguing – albiet somewhat under-explored – premise.” […]

A Little Help, Please

By |November 9th, 2019|Categories: General, Publishing, Writing|0 Comments

There was a time, not too long, when a publisher would nurture a promising author’s talent. Books would often be released on a writer’s potential, forgiving their yet to be fully realized skills.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about an old friend. He was a composer; one of the finest musical minds I’ve personally known. He primarily wrote for orchestra, but he could also write jazz and pop with the best of them. We had many stimulating conversations about art and aesthetics; […]
