    OMG, where is Aaron   If he lived up here, he might have got hit by a snow plow, but down where he lives that is not very likely. Or is it?   Someone told me that he was stocking a shelf when the whole aisle collapsed on him and he was by himself. Then they say he saw all the spilt liquor and couldn't bare the idea of all the good spirits going to waste. So injured on the floor he started slurping up everything he could get. Luckily he was lying at a low point of the store floor so all

Showtime 2022

My big writing news this month is that my short story “Men Online in the Local Area” has been published in Showtime 2022. It is about Harry, a young man living in East London, who is finding building a new life in his new home difficult. Superficially, it is about the ups and downs of using dating apps, but its real subject is about how a big, busy city can be a very lonely and difficult place to form new friendships in. This anthology, Showtime 2022, is special to me because I am one of th

Remarkable Cults and Their Followers

Another gaming book that I use as inspiration is Remarkable Cults and Their Followers by LoreSmyth's JVC Parry, Jeff Lee, and RP Davis. Every fantasy world needs a bad guy and every bad guy needs a cult.  This is a great inspiration for different ways you can put things together.  More fodder for world builders.

November, Remember

November is a month for remembering things.  Whether it's the Remember, Remember, the Fifth of November, with Guy Fawkes day, or November 11th, the Armistice Day commemorating The Great War, World War I, this is a month for looking back over past events.  Therefore, I'm suggesting prompts that have to do with remembering events of the past. #87 List of items: rosemary, a diary, a chest, RAM, elephant, and a red poppy #88  Your main character lost his memory.  What brings it back?

Ultimate Kingdoms by Legendary Games

Another gaming-related book in my library that I also supported on Kickstarter when it was running.  This is a handy tool for world building and setting up underlying rules of how things work... even if you aren't talking about it. It makes your created work function in a consistent way.  This makes it believable in your writing bubble.  This helps immersion in the story world.  I find this worth it, but only for really big world builders.

Nobody Saves the World

This is a cute little game.  fun to play as light entertainment. It is also not expensive or free with Xbox Game Pass, if you are on that. I tried it because you needed to play one of the top ten games on game pass for the reward points. more than worth it and I wouldn't have checked this out if hadn't been for Game Pass and the reward.  But I tried it out on Cloud gaming and liked it so I installed it and spent a couple hours unwinding with it.

Uncharted (Movie)

I'm not going to complain about a movie with Tom Holland... This movie is entertaining as a stand alone thing.  I've only played the game a little bit, so I'm not as married to the source material.  That said, it is a rip-off of Lara Croft's Tomb Raider which is itself a rip off of Indiana Jones.  I'm sure there is a deeper dive there too.  To be fair, I like all the franchises and pretty much most things that fit in this sort of genre. (Don't get me started on National Treasure ) Enj

November CSR Feature: A Soldier's Guide to Single Parenting by Dodger

November and the months keep rolling by toward the end of 2022 already. Life is what happens when you're not really paying attention, and sometimes things change suddenly and then you have to try and make them work. Well, in this month's feature story we're going back in time and to the summer months to see how this newly single father handles all that life throws at him. I couldn't believe I hadn't already featured this story before, but now you can for this month's CSR. Don't forget to come ba

Moonfall

Moonfall is another movie from groaner disaster movie guru Roland Emmerich.  This movie is one of those -turn your brain off completely sort of movies.  If you are familair with physics, turn that off.  the laws of physics are even more optional in this movie than in 2012, which features a limo doing jumps under a subway train...  the groan are more than that. The special effects are pretty good though. Interesting sci-fi story but we're not talking Arthur C. Clarke here either... If y
