Time to Re-calibrate

In some of my posts I have stated that I made a rookie mistake when self-publishing my book. I don’t know if it was a huge mistake, one that can’t be undone. It is a lesson I am learning though. First, many of the stories I had written in the book Forever Striking a Crucified […]

Inside the Book: Forever Striking A Crucified Pose– The Tire

The short story “The Tire”, has gone through many changes. The tire in the playground is an actual tire I played in during the 5th and 6th grade. It wasn‘t a good or bad memory, just a memory. Then, about 15 years ago I was at the school for some function and there it was, […]

Inside the Book: Forever Striking A Crucified Pose… Bypass

Self-publishing my new book Forever Striking a Crucified Pose was a long time in the making. I began some of these stories over 15 years ago. Starting on notebook paper, then a typewriter, and eventually as technology changed upgraded to Windows where there are so many clouds, and drives enabling one to work where you […]

Do You Believe? An Essay of Le Guin’s “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”

Several scholars argue that The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas, written by Ursula K. Le Guin, was motivated by Dostoyevsky’s Brothers Karamazov and/or William James’s The Moral Philosopher and the Moral Life. All three share a common theme: what if the happiness of “millions [depended] on one simple condition that a certain lost soul on the far-off edge of things should […]

3000 Words: Progress

And so it begins… The story I am writing has been on my mind for sometime and actually began it as a script a few years back, but it got shuffled into the “to-do” pile. I reently uncovered it and changed a few details around, and started writing notes about characters and other details late […]

Essay: “If I Were Tickled By The Rub of Love” by Dylan Thomas

“If I were tickled by the rub of love”, by Dylan Thomas is as difficult to interpret like Picasso’s “Femme a la Fleur”. In fact, many of Thomas’s poems have incited both “praise and condemnation” from critics” (Cox 2). However, the aforementioned poem is not the ramblings of a babbling trickster attempting to dupe his […]

Couldn’t Sleep…Too Busy Writing My Next Project–in my mind…

For starters, the last few days have been friggin cold, and then last night it warmed up so my wife and I couldn’t get comfortable. We did watch the newest episode of True Detective Season 3 ep: 5. It was filmed mostly here in NWA. I remember seeing the catering trucks and Star Trailers in […]

Super Bowl? I’m Busy Working On My Next Project…

The big game. The big dance. Don’t get me wrong, I love football. I have several fond memories of going to several games and even to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas. My brother and me had season tickets back in the day to see the Saint’s of New Orleans, and would drive 10 hours one […]
