Writing Wearing a Straitjacket Posts

Disconnecting to make other connections

I will try something new. I’m spending one day offline from the world. What that means for me is that I will pick a day of the week — most likely Sunday — where I disconnect from my phone, internet and other sources of connectivity that seems to invade my daily life. I feel the need to decompress from it all for a bit. Giving myself a day off from the digital deluge will give me more time to do other things I enjoy, like writing, gaming (offline) or just catching up on the pile of articles and books I have yet to…

To say it’s been a long while since I’ve updated the blog is an understatement. I can’t believe this is my first post of 2017 and it’s almost a quarter over. It’s not to say I haven’t been productive; I mean Ive gotten myself into incredible shape over the last three months. But when it comes to writing, I have been slacking.

Well I’ll be damned

I originally wanted to start this week off by writing about my vacation experiences in Thailand, but after waking up to the announcement that Donald J. Trump was elected as the 45th president of our country, I felt the need to get this out of my system. It’s sort of like having to burp after downing a can of Diet Coke. A necessity. He wasn’t my choice for president. Neither was Hilary. Yet, he is the one people voted to lead the US for the next four years, whether I like it or not. But that’s the funny part. Despite the…

The reports came days after news broke that Billy Corgan, frontman of the rock group Smashing Pumpkins and minority shareholder of TNA was looking to purchase the company outright from majority shareholder, Dixie Carter. Carter, daughter of Panda Energy International owners Robert and Janice Carter, stepped down as President of TNA earlier this year. TNA is set to produce it’s biggest wrestling event of the year, Bound for Glory, on Sunday — think of it…

A WriMo Survival Guide

Since we’re closing in on NaNoWriMo in November, we’ll use that event for the purpose of this epic morsel of motivation. However, this works for Camp NaNoWriMo, JulNoWriMo or any writing event. November is approaching faster than winter in a George R. R. Martin novel. With so many new writers participating in NaNoWriMo this year with the wide-eyes and itchy fingers, I wanted to be the first to give you a pre-NaNo pep talk. I bet you’re just filled with giggles at the thought of hammering out that next media blockbuster. Good! Remember those warm fuzzies after the first 10,000 words. By…
