Freefall

To date, the most exhilarating thing I’ve done I’m my life has been a shark dive on a trip in the Caribbean. After college, my grandmother gave me a wonderful gift. She paid for my cruise down in the crystal-clear seas of the Caribbean. However, instead of a big cruise ship, it was a sailboat that had enough room for roughly fifteen people and the crew, that was focused on providing its customers a fantastic scuba experience. With upwards of three dives per day, every day brought new wonders and secrets of the sea...

Hunt

The first story for my patrons is an Action/Adventure. When I sat down to start pen this tale, my mind kept spinning, like the tires of a car on blocks. However, I didn’t want to run to NYC Midnight for the seed for this story. Thankfully, my stalling brain latched onto a nugget buried deep in my mind. I stumbled onto WritingExercises and while I’ve gotten some milage out of it; I need to use it more. This time I leveraged the site’s Plot Generator...

Message

Forests contain some of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen. Even the mundane woodlands that cover the world. When I was younger, I remember bolting into the woods behind my parent’s home and exploring its secrets. Eventually, I crafted an extensive mental map of the woods, and I could travel through them and pop out anywhere in the neighborhood I wanted. Those constant trips helped solidify my love of forests...

Initial Batch

With the dawning of a new year comes the burden of selecting a New Year’s resolution. For me, this choice was simple. My number one resolution is to enhance my creative skills, both the written word and drawing. However, this isn’t a new goal and there are months when I’m unable to match the productivity that I’m hoping to achieve. As a result, this year I’m going to use a highly regimented schedule to focus my time...

Transaction

With The Gift and Stroll finished, I’m turned my attention to the last story for the year, a piece of Science Fiction. When I pulled December’s genre, I didn’t know what storyline I would explore. But as the end of the year approached, my mind jumped to the crew of the Scythe. I’ve given a few stories of their adventures to my patrons, and I wanted to explore them a little more. However, after some thought, I realized that Laurie’s character needed a little more clarification...

Stroll

Despite publishing The Gift late, I instantly pivoted to this month’s fantasy tale. While I had an inkling of what the yarn I wanted to spin, when I sat down to work on it, my mind shifted, and I remembered about Tiatha. So far, I have written a pair of tales around this spell slinger, Siphoning the Stone and Arrogance. The former introduced the character while the latter showed more of her power (with this publication, Tiatha will bookend this year)...

The Gift

Since the first year I heard about NaNoWriMo, I’ve always enjoyed pushing myself to win that challenge. Unfortunately, each year it takes a lot out of me, and I need a few weeks to recover. Despite the yearly promise to do better next year, I’ve always fallen short. After recovering from the mad dash, I pulled the prompts from my patrons and started thinking about the stories I might write. While I had some initial thoughts for the Fantasy and Science fiction tale, a narrative for the drama eluded me...
