Art Roundup, week of July 25th

As another week comes to a close, I’m excited to bring my artwork to the readers of my blog. This week’s collection of artwork is highlighted by Twisted Fibers 07, Shrooms, and Magic Flare. These pieces showcase each of the three principal ways that I’ve been creating my art, the interesting technique, using the liquify tool, and doodling...

Cyclist

With Understanding and Fishing Hole finished, I focused on the last story of July for my patrons, a Political Satire. After writing several stories in this genre, I realized the benefit of blending something potentially divisive with another genre, like Science Fiction. That simple alteration to my focus on Political Satire, brought new joy to the genre. Fortunately, when it came time to write Fading Liberties and Consequences, I placed them on the same world as one of my long-running series of flash fiction, Fortunes...

Fishing Hole

Despite the turbulence of my July, I dedicated myself to finish crafting the exclusive pieces of flash fiction for my patrons. With Understanding finished, I stepped away from the turmoil in my life and focused on my next creative outlet, a Historical Fiction. Thankfully, when I pulled the results for July, I knew the character who would propel this tale forward. Samuel and his majestic dragon Pearl would serve as the focal point of this blending of Historical Fiction and Fantasy...

Trinket

As July draws to a close, I’ve dedicated myself to my writing in order to escape from the pressures and heartaches of the real world. While most of my stories this month refused to flow from my fingertips, this storyline practically rushed through my fingers. When I selected this prompt, the basics of the story crystalized in my mind. Thankfully, Micro Fiction’s constraint of two hundred and fifty words helped me craft this micro-escape from reality...

Art Roundup, week of July 18th

While I’m proud of every piece of artwork that I create, I’m more attached to some. This week my favorites include Earthen Home, Wolf & Snake, and Weapon Table. The common thread connecting these images is that they started as a collection of lines...

Seeking Refuge

Constraints are excellent for sparking new ideas. One of my favorite characters, Darren Gilbert, was created because of a random NYC Midnight prompt. I needed to write a fantasy at a shoe store and feature a pancake. So, when my patrons selected horror as one of my monthly genres over on Patreon, I selected another prompt and created a character with a passion for wiping out creatures that go bump in the night. Despite not giving this character a name in his initial work of Flash Fiction, I was intrigued by his character that I focused on him in a piece of Micro Fiction...

Art Roundup, week of July 11th

As this year of drawing continues, I’m constantly seeing my skill develop and increase. Things that I couldn’t have done a few months ago are becoming commonplace in my sketches and finished pieces of art. However, I refuse to rely on my past accomplishments, there’s no surer way for skills to plateau. So, I’m constantly examining my finished pieces for all the flaws, both fundamental and perceived, to achieve my goals...

Understanding

My creative portion of my mind works wonders at providing me an escape from reality. Unfortunately, some days that escape is easier than others, and ever June 30th ticked away, my escapes haven’t been as effective. While I’m eventually able to fall into my creative headspace, once I’m there I’m too exhausted for some of my more typical sessions. As a result, the vast majority of my writing has been placed aside for the month, specifically all five of my Wattpad publications. Hopefully, when August rolls around, I’ll be past this funk and able to resume detailing all those storylines...

Seeking Justice

As the limousine drew to a stop, Kyle stepped in front of the vehicle, slapping the hood with a file folder.

The driver’s window lowered, and he popped his head through the opening. “Are you aware of who I’m driving?”

Kyle tapped the packet against his forehead as his lips curled into a grin. “I trust Chase Heath is nestled in there.” He thrust the dossier toward the backside of the limousine. “I have important questions for him.”

“Get out of the way.”

The rear door opened, and a stocky individual leaned against the vehicle. “You heard our driver, step aside.”..

Crush

The last I explored the people in the Academy’s past, my attention lingered on a duel between a pair of students. When I finished penning that tale, I didn’t plan on returning to these particular characters. However, as I sat down to plan my Micro Fiction for July, I used Google to generate some random genres, and one of them was a Romantic Comedy. As I looked through my writing journals to match up a storyline to the selected prompts, I stumbled upon Dueling Students...
