  1. I know that you left our country with a dream and a legacy and hope for peace and equality in the future... And after these past two weeks... I just want to say that we're sorry.
  2. Hehehe, but...it's still good news! Because a new issue of Imagine Magazine is up and ready for you guys for the New Year! It actually went up yesterday, but this weird flu virus refuses to let me go. It's been kicking my ass for an entire week now. So I'm either miserable beyond belief, or I'm all goofy off of cold medicine. It does NOT make it easy for me to work any Comsie magic, trust me! But I hope to get better soon. Just...ugh! Either way, the new issue is live guys! And I'm going to fix a few more formatting issues and stuff for the other few articles I had to be added to this iss

    Kill The Dog

    Hehehe, you know when I was in college, I had a writing teacher that had a somewhat comical, but very true, rule to follow when it came to getting your audience to truly feel a moment of intense emotional pain in your project. Works every time. He used to say, "If you want to make your audience cry...kill the dog!" And, yes, he meant that literally. Script wise, anyway. You can have Rambo gun down an army of enemies in a foreign land, or have Iron Man burn a bunch of terrorists to ashes with pulse blasters...but if you harm ONE animal in a movie or TV show? Instant tears and gasps of
  4. Omigod...I' soooo sorry if I've been absent for a while! But THANKS for hanging in there with me and still reading the stories! I've been struggling with a particularly NASTY flu bug since Monday, and it's pretty much kept me bedridden ever since. And with everything that's going on in the world right now, my family and I have to make sure that it's JUST the flu, you know? And luckily...it is. Just a hazard of babysitting kids on occasion. I'm trying to get better though. Today is the first time that I've eaten anything other than soup and applesauce since Wednesday morning. Ug
  5. It's just good to hear an emotionally mature leader talk some SENSE, you know?
  6. AHEM...!!!!! 😮 Sighhhhhhhhh..... That's it! I'm doing it! I'm doing it right NOW! ::Grabs Shovel:: ::Starts Digging Swimming Pool In My Backyard:: "Hello? 'Teen Sugar Banana' Pool Cleaning Service? Yes, I'd like to place an order for clean up next weekend, please..."
  7. A big, heartfelt, hug to all of you fellow writers who tuned in today, right here, at Gay Authors! Welcome to a new brand new flurry of writing articles that I hope will be useful to all of you who are already massively talented in everything that you do, but are ambitious enough to still search for an added edge wherever you can find one! And also for those of you who are looking for that little 'push' that might get you started on your first project! Honestly, I'm no expert on any of this stuff. Trust me, I make more mistakes than most, and I've probably had more failures than triumphs
  8. ::Snickers:: Well...that's ONE way to peacefully threaten your teenage daughter! LOL!
  9. For fans of the zombie apocalypse story "Shelter", who have been reading all of the individual character prequels will be happy to know that the final chapter of "Miles To Go" has just been posted on the site! Preston is definitely one of the crowd favorites from the "Shelter" series, and if you're looking to get a deeper glimpse into his life before the world fell apart, now's your chance! Enjoy! And let me know what you think when you're done! https://gayauthors.org/story/comicality/milestogo/ And be sure to check out ALL of the other exciting prequels as well! Get into the whole
  10. "Miles To Go 5" I hurried over to the dresser next to me, and I tried to see if I could move it in front of the door to keep Ol' Man Simpson from breaking in before I could get away! I strained my arms as much as I could, squinting my eyes tight and grunting as I pushed and pushed with all of my might, but it wouldn't budge. "Unnnngh!!!! Come on!" I turned around and put my back up against the dresser, digging my heels into the carpet as deeply as I could, my sneakers using whatever traction they had to grip the floor as I fought to move this stupid thing. I even put my foot on
  11. Ok, so you all may remember an article that I did on exposition in your fiction a few months back...but I'd like to go a little bit more in depth when it comes to finding ways to create and finesse that exposition, how it works, and why it works. Basically, it's the art of writing without writing. It's the craft of being able to paint a vivid picture in the minds of your readers to deliver a message without having to write it out for them. There are certain techniques that you can use to accomplish this, but in order to truly understand how and why they work, you have to realize how you'r
  12. Well...for me, I think it depends on the point of the story. I wrote a writing tip talking about 'theme', and that's what determines the serialization factor for me. Whether I'm reading it, watching it on TV, or writing it myself. To explain further, you mentioned Superman. Now, for comic books...it's very character themed. The point of the story is Superman. However, if you have a TV show like "Smallville"...that's more story themed. So an extended series can have a much broader arc, where one plot point weaves itself into another, characters are developed, and an actual 'story' is told fr

    So...I want you all to take a few seconds, and think about your life in it’s entirety. Your entire life, as a whole. Childhood, adolescence, adulthood. How do you envision it in your mind? Do you think about that day you picked up some extra eggs and milk from the grocery store? Do you think about the night you sat on the couch and watched TV for six hours straight? Or maybe you’re thinking about that gas bill you paid, or that time you got a parking ticket? Hehehe, you might be, I don’t know. But I’m willing to bet that it’s unlikely. I like to think of life as a series of ‘moments’
