He created monsters that became legends. He created classics that became influential mainstays. He conjured nightmares to haunt us.

A string of text, a collection of words and phrases forming sentences, paragraphs, and so forth. Disconnected from the author, yet it has an author, and with an author comes ownership. This body of words and phrases is more than just text, it is thoughts and opinions formed into a narrative. It seems too easy to view the narrative in […]

When I was in my twenties, recovering from that whole drunk delirium of being a teenager, I joined the army.

And it was all a waste of time; when bullets flew, and blood became a more common sight than friendly […]
The vampire. A creature of the night that embodies charisma, strength, and control. Attributes that most either aspire for, or long to be the subject of. The curse of being abandoned, exiled, and forgotten may even seem trivial when fear and power are weighted in. In short, the vampire is characterized in such a way to bring out admiration, desire, […]
A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play. James P. Carse, Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility How does this play with literature? Reading a book there is the finite purpose of completing from cover to cover.

Their script consisted of last minute ideas scribbled on a chalkboard after hours and hours of brainstorming. The joke is, Matt Stone and Trey Parker don’t have to try […]
Though not interested in bashing one specific gender as solely responsible for the disproportionate number of men to women authors. Different times, different mind sets, and different values. However, I am open for discussion on the subject and how it has shaped your view in literature and writing. With that said, please enjoy Do You Read more Men or Women […]
