Something Else

Something else became unobservable. What exactly? I do not know. It is too early for me to detail and much too late for me to divulge. Although, it is a matter of great urgency and should therefore be seriously considered and reconsidered if need be. I’m not at all offended by quixotic remarks from unknowing bystanders. The most important thing to remember, without losing one’s selfish grip on reality, is that the human brain is a very powerful ally. Unfortunately, most see it as nothing more than an appendage and/or vital organ. But it is these things and so much more. So much more than even one person can fathom.
  We have been lied to all of our lives. Not just little white lies here and there but full-fledged, uncompromising lies. Before you go and label me as yet another conspiracy nut; take into consideration my vision and perspective. If after all that is said you still feel it necessary to ridicule me and throw the proverbial stone; be my guest. I’ll even hand you the first stone. But not before I summarize and debrief the rest of humanity. So, with that in mind, here is my version of things. Of all things that have been and all things yet to come.
  For most of us time seems to work against us and never with us. This is a bit of an understatement but can be easily rectified. We’ve been taught to believe that all things are ruled by time. It would be more accurate to say that all things are ruled by our perception of time. If you do not understand what I’m getting at, and I’m sure you don’t, please bear with me. It may take some time and effort on both our parts but we’ll get there.

Story About

Writing a story about somebody writing a story. Can't be much simpler than that.

 My new book Flesh of the Muse is now officially published and ready for online purchase! I will post the respective link later. :-)

So Many Possibilities

 I want to write a story about a man who is obsessed with peanut butter. Or maybe a story about a woman who is dumped by her fiance then decides to open up a candy shop. Or maybe some kind of romantic comedy type novel. I suppose I could write a really heart-wrenching novel about people losing their faith in themselves. Or a story about someone inspiring others to pursue their dreams and ambitions. So many possibilities out there and inside my head.

No More Division

People tend to pay attention to the wrong things. In matters of societal change we've always been divided. Mainstream media has divided us, government has divided us, the banks have divided us. I for one no longer see any use for division. The founding fathers rebelled against their own government when others told them not to. Now we must do the same. It is unfortunate but it is necessary.

Upset the brunette
She doesn’t like
To be alone
She only loves herself
And that’s no joke
She isn’t very beautiful but
She tries

Library Dialogue

Went to my local library yesterday. I usually make it a point to go once a week; sometimes twice. I've started to become interested in screen plays. Not just reading them but also becoming familiar with their structure and dialogue. I believe it is slightly easier to write a screenplay than a novel. Mostly because a screen play focuses on dialogue and a novel tends to focus on descriptive narrative. I recently read the screen play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams and found it to be a bit over dramatic but it does contain some great dialogue. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I have been toying with my own screen play idea. So far it is under the working title Because I Said So and it is a simple fish out of water type story. The main character, Van Confucius Schwartz, is an aspiring writer and is tired of his work going unrecognized in the small Texas town he grew up in. He makes plans to attend a writing/journalism school in New York and inevitably has to deal with the varied reactions about his leaving home from his friends, relatives and girlfriend. Oh and I also set it sometime during the early 1990's. I guess it does seem promising so far. I would actually love to see some local theater group act it out once it is complete. I believe people need to see more original plays nowadays. There are too many big budget movies bombarding our senses on a daily basis.

 I will post a preview of my screenplay soon. Maybe in the next week. :-)
