Fantasy

Fantasy Alrighty then, hehehe... This is going to be another one of those articles that I need help with from the rest of you, because even though it’s been a while since I first started my very first full blown ‘fantasy’ story, I am still doing my best to wing it and figure things out. Any help or advice that you guys could give me from your own experiences would be greatly appreciated. I still feel a bit intimidated by the series, personally, but I’m trying my best to get past that.

Wordplay

I love a good play on words, which is why I like Dad jokes and memes with puns.  Don't judge me... someone has to laugh at them!   Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any eye strain or facial bruising caused by excessive from any stories inspired by these prompts.     PT Prompt #85: Sometimes words have very different meanings across languages.  For example, the word "gift" in English means something given to another person without expectation of payment, synonymous with "present"

More Anthology Voting

Based on the results of the polls I created a couple of weeks ago, I have created two new polls to further narrow down our choices for next year as far as number and type of anthologies/contests, and what you would like to see as far as themes go.  The polls will be open for two weeks, then will be closed.

Hades (Game)

This is a very addicting game.  You play as long as you can survive, die and start over.  What keeps you going is finding out the story, which is really quite interesting.  The music is cool and the voice acting is top notch.  Excellent game. I sunk a LOT of hours into it as a way to unwind after a long day of work.  Pretty inexpensive too.  And it's on all platforms, I think. worth checking out!

Ask An Author 3.0 #22

Another month has come and gone. Over here in Kentucky, we're actually getting some autumn weather for once. I'm used to going from intense heat to severe cold within a week. No need to immediately break out the heavy coats. However, I am getting used to coming up with innovative ways to freshen up Ask An Author. No questions came in this past month, so we're switching things up.  We're going back to interactive. When we didn't have questions last time, our authors and readers asked and ans

Is It Too Early To Talk About Christmas?

Well the blog title asks the question, so it too early to talk about Christmas? I hope not, but then this isn't necessarily what you think it's about. This isn't about my Christmas, well may be it is in a way, or even your Christmas, It's about what I and many other people have been doing lately and how it affects Christmas for others. Some of you may know that I volunteer with a local organisation that supports homeless people, as I'm currently not face to face with our clients I carry out

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

I figured I'd wrap up the current 3 movie timeline.  (For the record, the money-losing disaster that was the start of the Hollywood crap show of the last few years "Ghostbusters 2016" is not part of canon at idiot director Paul Fool's insistence) This movie is kind of an apology from Sony for the above mentioned crap show.  It has plenty of little fan thank yous.  And the main plotline is actually a pretty touching tribute.  Also of interesting note, they forced Bill Murray to appear i

Walking Through Dark Places short story is now live

I was inspired to write this through my prompt, someone who live their life in complete denial of themselves. It's a very interesting portrait of a man who is trapped in a world of his own creation, probably filled with regrets, compromises, and desires. It's a psychological story about accepting mortality and accepting reality even if it's bleak. Additionally, readers will probably figure out that the young man in my story was murdered. I took inspiration on this from a certain gay serial

Ghostbusters II

Ghostbusters II was not quite as good as Ghostbusters, but it was still an enjoyable movie.  Well worth watching nonetheless.  Funny. I love the ghost train and ghost titanic.
