Writing Priorities, Maximizing your Potential for Profit.

Why do we write?

  • If you are anything like me, the news of the day can destroy your creative bubble.  Distractions like Alexa or news flashes also can remove you from ‘your world.’
  • Eliminate distractions. Alexa can be told to go into do not disturb mode, as can your smartphone.

The real point of this blog is to recognize why we do what we do.  Somewhere in the back of our minds, we want to be the next New York Times Best Seller.  In a talk recently, many denied it but, after a little soul searching, it turned into ‘maybe one day.’

  • Honesty with yourself at least puts you on the correct road.

That little voice in my head has always been there but, it certainly lives in the back of my head.  Throughout my writing career, I have kept a day job. Keeping it real, keeps you grounded.

My career in writing began as writing technical documentation and then teaching from it.  I published in some international magazines for technical things but, that is not creative writing.

Today I see many blogs on how to publish on Kindle or other services.  There are other blogs on snaring agents and so on.  Should how do I publish be your priority?  How about something like, how do I layer my story so I keep my audience engaged?

  • Much like a story, one of the first things you must do is build a foundation or skeleton.

I can create flash fiction in less than an hour, and it is a good story.  Short stories and flash fictions are excellent ways to practice using words judiciously while conveying a set of ideas, or in this case, a story that entertains.

Not knowing anything about creative writing, several years ago, I launched out writing a large novel.

The bones of the story are perfect.  The story entertained me as I created it, and I fell in love with many of the characters, even the quirky robot.

As for the craft of writing, that is a different story.

In all honesty, I should unpublish much of my earlier works while I take the time to install the layers or the craft of writing. Had I used traditional publishing methods, a good editor would have pushed me through the process of improving my craft, way back then.

While the bones are white and the structure sound, what color are the walls? What does it look like? What does it smell like or sound like to be there?

I could go on and on about story structure.  Perhaps I could lament about the use of symbolism or alliteration. I could expound upon creating that emotional appeal to the reader through the eyes of the characters, that in itself might be an entire chapter.

The bottom line is this.  There are tens of thousands of writers out there that are light years ahead of where many are.  They know to create a New York Times bestseller that the bones are only the beginning.

Last week my Grammarly report informed me that I had checked over 26 million words.  Those are words much like these that I have typed. I have published over 30 novels, most full-length.  Not bragging; none of them are on the New York Times bestseller list.

Currently, I have left them published as I feel like those that want to learn from my path can get an e-book version and see the progression of ‘the craft.’ Then there are those who actually leave feedback that assists me in improving my craft as well.

One way that I know I am improving is this; when I finish a novel, I look at the word count.

Under Roswell, while a great story is huge.  My latest creation is 45K words, or about a third of the word count.

The latest is in what I call an aging folder with other manuscripts that are waiting for me to revisit them. 

“What, you’re not promoting them to agents?”

Not unlike the works I published already, these stories are aging to the point that when I go back to read them, edit them, it will be as if I have never read them before.

I know writers who have been working on one novel for over 30 years.  They are hobbyists and will likely never get that one published as it will never be done.

Writers must be prolific, and they must be ruthless with their time.

Writers must live their lives and must not get their material from TV or others’ writings.

Writers must be open to critique, self-examination, and honesty.  Sure, dream big and go for the brass ring but, have a net.

I give my time and talent to other writers constantly. A rising tide lifts all ships.

When I go to different writing groups, give talks, and so on, I can tell who is looking for that one break and who is there to be part of the tribe.

The bottom line with that elusive ‘prize’ is what the audience will connect with when your book hits the market?

I wrote a number of books inspired by 50 shades.  Those sell but, not really my cup of tea.

Who will your audience be?

I see many new titles about pandemics.  Are you tone death?

My last bit of advice for you writers out there is this: Write to please yourself.

I am an artist, and I paint to please myself.

I love to play musical instruments but only for my own enjoyment and as a way to find my center.

I write to live in that world, love those characters, and escape this world.  In my paintings or my writings, I can live there and be at peace.

Yes, I know what is going on in the world. In many of my blog posts, you can tell when I am overwhelmed by the idiots who try to rule us.  There are many who should be facing Nurnberg-style tribunals and many more who should be swinging at the end of a rope.

We will never know who killed JFK, and we will never know the truth about the current pandemic.

Control the things you can, ignore the things you cannot, and try to live in peace in your own bubble.

Time Wasters That Keep You From Writing.

What are your distractions?

Greetings fellow bloggers, writers and those that just follow me.  Today I thought I might spend a little time with you talking about …time…

Have you ever chimed in on a conversation on social media? 

My personal feelings on Facebook are, it is a great way to keep up with family and friends without actually calling them.  Let that sink in.

The simple facts are very few people have 681 real friends.  I would define what a friend is but, I don’t think that is necessary.

My friends are the people on my favorites list on the phone. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Yes, there are hundreds of people that I know, chat with online, and so on but, I usually don’t require their phone number.  Truth told, I don’t have the time to visit with many friends.

Scanning through social media has turned into a pastime that unfortunately zaps time away from other things.  Way back when, I used to teach a class on time management.  

In the business world today, they attach different names to it but Scrum is the latest tool.

From timeboxing to working in sprints, this is a high-pressure environment for programmers.

Where the program breaks, and the world of missed deadlines occur is a failure to take into account the human equation.

The smart phone and social media are two stumbling blocks. 

Not long ago I hired a landscaping crew to clean out the weeds, remove and replace dead plants and so on. The PM, or in this case the team lead, walked back and forth between the front and the back of the house.  As soon as he disappeared, his workers would stop working.  The cell phones came out of their back pocket.  It was almost laughable. They weren’t talking, they were playing games or checking social media.  The job took much longer than it should have.

The human factor can only do so many sprints before their mind needs to focus on something else for a while.

There were many time-management tools in the day.  As a manager of many programmers, I kept a spreadsheet of where they each were on their part of the project.  Hiring from sourced talent, if I got a dud, it was easy enough to replace them.

That by the way, is why most companies hire from such firms. They get 6 months to see how you will perform.

I would never work in a scrum environment. While the tool is meant for projects that might change with scope creep or unforeseen issues, the pressure on everyone involved comes down to time.

In our writers’ group we have writing sprints, which was taken from Scrum but, the sprint is just a way for you to dedicate time to your craft, or hobby.

Most writers that fail are those who have piss poor time management skills.

On my desk was an Alexa, my phone and some clutter that has shown up over the years.

Alexa had to go.  While a nice tool for some things, the screen displaying news feeds and so on was distracting.

The phone must be face down.  I don’t want to see anything that will cause me to deviate from my task.

Alexa has a ‘do not disturb’ function, use it.

I shut my office door to keep the distractions at bay. The phone is silenced and my list of what I want to accomplish is in front of me.

People ask me how in the devil I manage to crank out so many novels.  Time management is key.

I watch very little TV. Most of what I see is mindless dribble aimed at those with the functional IQ of a houseplant.

It is no wonder why so many shows have piss poor ratings.

If you are trapped into watching TV, examine the writing, the structure of the story and yes, any arcs.  In this way if I am stuck watching shows aimed at fifth graders, at least I can learn something from it.

Where this all started was a friendly post on Facebook.  Someone was reaching out for assistance.  I offered some advice. There were many who chimed in on my advice. Several gave very bad advice and attacked me in the process.  Delete post, and go back to my task at hand.

I live in the world I create most of the time.  Before I nod off, the story I am creating is running through my mind.  I don’t plot a story; I write from a stream of conscious.  If the ideas that pop up in the wee hours of the morning and I think there is a chance I will forget them, I get up and make notes.

Stephen King once said that he doesn’t keep a notebook with him.  If an idea pops into his head and he forgets it, it was most likely not any good anyway.  He also said a notebook like that, is just a book full of bad ideas.

I write very much like him but, I do keep a notebook. A simple three- or four-letter tickler, to have the MC fall into a crack in the ice at the end of a chapter is gold.

Sonny, You don’t know what you are talking about.

If Biden were truly worried about COVID he would not be allowing hundreds of thousands of Covid positive people into the country.

Years ago, while lunching with my best friend, getting older was the topic of discussion.  We both agreed that aging was not for sissies.

One of the first signs of aging is not the typical visual signals you might expect.  Hair turns gray and thins very slowly for most. Making those noises your parents made when you get up might take a while for you to recognize that sign.

Knowing your doctor’s office staff by their first names, and knowing their family history might be your first clue. When your social life revolves around which specialist you are visiting this week, just maybe the hint that you are getting older might set in.

For me, it was none of those things. It was something that I said.

The conversation drifted around different topics of the day.  The waiter comes up listening to us for a moment before he chimed in.  He was totally clueless.  His mind however was made up by some fragment of the facts someone had told him or, possibly something he had heard on the news.

My friend and I looked at each other, before I turned to glare at this kid.  The phrase never before uttered by me came out rather snobbishly. ‘Sonny, you don’t know what you are talking about.’

He walked away shaking his head while my friend stared at me and laughed.  “What?”

“Welcome to my world.”

I had to laugh as those words were never part of my diction.

Walking out the door my friend glanced at me and said…’They vote.’

The world is headed in the wrong direction. People without a grasp on history are controlling the narrative on social media.  Major Media sources are taking foreign dollars to print, or not print stories, that would paint those sources in a bad light.

Many that I know on social media only ever talk to me when they feel compelled to show their moral ambiguities, and myopic understanding of the world while chastising me.

Sonny, you really don’t know what you are talking about.  The fact checkers are twenty-year-old boys with man buns, who sit around in their undershorts putting in their time while reading from approved scripts from someone.

Get your facts from other sources other than social media, and use other search engines other than Yahoo, Google and Bing.  Algorithms are a thing.

News From the Russian Front… Ok, from a place outside of Big Tech…

Time to leave this world for a while…

‘I support those of you who do not want to take the vaccine; the sooner the virus kills you off, we will then be safe to go back to normal.’

This quote came from social media. I will address it at the end of this article.

Most of social media has been co-opted by governments who get them to do their bidding.  For instance, if I were to post this on my Facebook account, it would never see the light of day.  From demoting it to posting bullshit propaganda all over it regarding the veracity of what I am about to tell you, the article would be difficult to read if not redacted.

Keep in mind these social giants have hired academia to scour their platforms, so only the narrative they want advanced is visible.  

If the above link survives the process of publishing, you should take some time to read it.

  • To answer your first obvious question…TW, are you an anti vaxer?
  • No.  Having spent much of my professional career in the medical community, I am a firm believer in vaccines.
  • The real question is, ‘Is mRNA technology ready for prime time?’ 
  • The second question is, what will the long-term effects be of messing with people’s DNA?
  • What will the long-term effects be to the progeny of the vaccinated?
  • Is mRNA technology actually a vaccine?
  • When you focus the immune response on one particular covid molecule, what happens when the flu or H1N1 or even Monkeypox shows up?
  • If the government is so hyper-focused on making sure the population is vaccinated, why in just 2021 are they allowing up to 1.8 million undocumented, untested, unvaccinated immigrants from all over the world into the US?  Why are they Dumping them in Major cities everywhere?
  • Why do I have to use a search engine other than Google to find articles like the one referenced?
  • Why is the media, in combination with Big Tech, lying to the masses about Covid, immigration, and even the truth about our economy?

You won’t see a report about this on the MSM but, insurance carriers are going fucking nuts.  You see, they build their actuarial tables on current trends.

When Bill Clinton raised the retirement age, it was under the guise that people are living longer, so they should work longer.  That, of course, was a lie; it was a way to extend the life of Social Security as they had robbed it.

Insurance carriers did not change their tables; in fact, they noted that middle America is not living near as long. I would offer that it is processed foods and high fructose corn syrup (diet) that is most notably to blame, but that is outside the scope of this article.

With Covid, they are finding that people who contract it might perish six months to a year after they got it due to the ongoing damage from the disease.  This will cost them billions if they don’t factor this into their underwriting. Look for these questions to appear on forms right under ‘do you use tobacco?’

Since the beginning of this pandemic, I have learned more about Genomics than I ever wanted or cared to know.  Let’s face it, Bio movies and books like this have been done to death.  As a writer, I wouldn’t waste my time writing another Hot Zone. However, Dustin Hoffman did a good job in his role.

The bottom line is this. 

I think we should be focused on treating the problem vs. opening Pandora’s box of RNA technology, when we have no way to know what the long term outcome will be.  They are playing with fire, to begin with, and now instead of using lab rats, they are using millions of people.

Whoever authorized the research of ‘gain of function’ research on a deadly virus needs to be tried much like Nuremberg.  Why?  The world needs a say so, and we need conventions signed by all that we will not do something so haphazard and ill-informed ever again.

Before I end tonight’s Epistle, I wanted to share something I read on Facebook.

‘I support those of you who do not want to take the vaccine; the sooner the virus kills you off, we will then be safe to go back to normal.’

I understand where this kind of vitriolic rhetoric came from.  Much like the Jews were blamed for all the woes in Germany and beyond, the ‘my body my choice people’ are becoming the next class of people who might be required to wear something to identify themselves as those to be shunned or sent off to concentration camps.

The vaccine passport is a preamble to this type of behavior, and it is being promoted by the mainstream media, again, not your friend.

The person that wrote this is scared, or drunk, or just fucking stupid. The problem is, this type of talk is how angry mobs get started. Soon it is not the virus, or the person who invented it; it is the victim who does not want to be just another lab rat for Big Pharma!

Since we don’t know our history and are destroying it as quickly as our academic friends can, Rome will Fall yet again, and most of academia will fiddle, blaming anyone else.

The globalists are pulling the strings. For Globalism to happen, Rome must Fall. The Globalists are most probably in cahoots with China.

(Now there is a book idea.)

I don’t care what the media tells you; nobody in government gives a shit about you, long term. That is why they are replacing you. You are a tool, a vote, and while working, your tax dollars fund for their private islands and lavish life styles.

That money trickles down from congress and so on to committees who hire family members and soon tax payers are purchasing million dollar hammers and billion dollar bombs for some war that they will start. War is good for the economy.

Keep in mind most cable news anchors are dumb as a box of rocks and only know what writers tell them to say. They either appear knowledgeable with dark-rimmed glasses or attractive to whatever one might identify as but, as far as intelligent, not so fast. They, like most thespians are narcissist, and you would not want to know them in person.

If they were intelligent, they might look up the words Journalists and Objective and give it a whirl.

The problem is, those who listen to these talking heads are not much smarter. Unlike the talking heads, the consumers of this verbiage have lots to worry about that take up their time.  With the countries economy decimated by the pandemic, and ill-founded policies from this administration, it will not get any better. If Socialism is so great, why are the folks who say it is; not headed for Cuba or Venezuela?

I am going back to writing my latest novel; it will be something happy in a land far, far away… In the mean time

is still a favorite among my readers.

Much Love  -TW

What if you did something that caused the death of someone?

What if it were the death of 4 million someone’s?

I don’t know about most people, but I hate being lied to.

The mainstream media in the US and I suspect elsewhere is spinning yarns most probably created by the Chinese ministry of propaganda. If Anderson Cooper tells me it is sunny outside, I am going to look for myself.

I don’t believe a word I hear on CNN or MSNBC. That also applies to Apple News, Amazon news, and a host of other mega-media conglomerates who control the narrative around the globe.  

Those who pander to the overly emotional non-critical thinkers among us disserve what they get. Yes, good sheep, keep nibbling the grass; soon, all your troubles will be over…as you fall off the cliff.

People need to learn to think and know when they are being manipulated.  It’s very easy.  Sally Struthers if you remember back that far was excellent at it.  Walking among squaller and mostly naked children she would cry, how can you just turn a blind eye, help these children!!!

Of course, about 8 cents of every dollar actually fed the children.  PFFFT

If any news anchor makes some emotional plea, you are being manipulated.  The goal is to snag your emotions, hook your child, and get you to do some action.  If nothing more than develop anger for some opponent through lies and deceptions.

Joseph Goebbels would be proud.

There is a preponderance of evidence that the US-funded the lab in Wuhan, but Fauci was instrumental in what they were doing. There is this whole semantical argument he is making about what gain of purpose means.  

If you are old enough to remember Clinton telling the world he did not have sex with that woman, it depends on the definition of IS IS…it is the same argument.

While Fauci might not have stained a pretty blue dress, he might be instrumental in the death of over four million people and the utter decimation of the economies of over 180 countries.

In his mind, and he is on record saying this…

“If that is the case, the research was worth it.”

I have lost loved ones. I cannot speak for you or the other 4,000,000 who have died but, I don’t think Fauci can speak for us either.  With the Delta Variant still rampaging around the world, now we have the Lambda variant, what new horrors will it bring?

Viruses are harmful to play with as they are single-strand RNA.  They morph too damned easy.

His e-mails and papers are out there, but you might need to use Mozilla or Dogpile.com to find the correct metadata. Google, Bing, and Yahoo are filtering it so you will never find it.  Anything Covid related comes up to the official government script, created by God knows who.  I suspect China.

Before this is over, someone besides governments beholding to the communist party of China is going to demand answers. 

The truth is out there; we are just not getting it because we don’t need to know. 

“There is the grass sheeple, go eat.”

Just wear your mask, obedient slave. Take any shot we offer, and don’t ask questions.  The research will be worth it, eventually.

If again, you use another search engine and research mRNA virus research, you will see that those players today have been at it for years.  They were relegated to using humanized mice as lab rats. Now they have the whole fucking world as their oyster.

While the research might be worth it, someday, and Moderna, Pfizer and J&J might have a new cancer drug they can use to target cancer specific DNA, at what cost will the research come?  

Yes, I am a sci-fi writer. This stuff is morally bankrupt, and creepy.

Are you a government tit sucker?

Is the sun setting on the US?

Human nature is to seek the path of least resistance.  When one is paid to stay home and not work vs actually showing up at an appointed place, the results are pretty clear.

In the face of these policies, paying people to stay home makes no sense.

Let’s, for the moment, assume that the government cares about you. By paying you to stay home, you can stay safe, hunkered down in your safe space. Is that what you are doing?

No, you are living your life as usual, without working.

By now, even the most doltish among you should have realized that the cost of goods and services have almost doubled. From fuel to fast food to lumber, inflation is on the march.  Why?

We haven’t increased our GDP. We are printing money. Businesses are scrambling to stay afloat in a world where nobody wants to work, thanks to idiotic policies by this administration.

Imagine if you will, you are playing a board game where amassing large amounts of paper money is the end goal.  He who has the most wins the game. Mid-game, we change the rules. If you are running low, you write an IOU for the money you need. The result is, you never have to sell anything back to the bank for a loss. Every IOU created; lessons the value of the currency.

Printing more money is another form of an IOU.

While we struggle to keep food on our tables, larger businesses employ labor forces in other countries.  They have a fluid model.  This type of model allows them to shift the production of widgets to whoever can provide the cheapest labor.

  • Didn’t you find it odd that last year the flu went on holiday as only Covid was the real killer?
  • Many who passed in accidents, single-vehicle accidents were chalked up to Covid, true story.
  • Why make this virus seem scarier than it is?

Outsourcing will enrich the coffers of other countries as they have no such gifts from the taxpayers.  The people either work or starve.  If that sentence seems ambiguous to you, perhaps the following will put a finer point on it.

‘A man that does not better society by his life does so by his death.’

That statement might seem harsh, but it is true. You either contribute to society and pay your dues or die.  If all non-disabled people adopted this ideal, the world would be a much better place.  Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. We are compassionate people, but we are not fools, are we?

History is replete with the rises and falls of empires.  Marxism and communism are high up on the list of reasons for the fall. Built on lies, corruption, and greed, Marxism is a cruel hoax to those sheep who blindly follow false prophets, politicians, or charlatans.

There is a darker, more sinister scheme in play even now as you download the latest patch for your video game or perhaps the next big series to binge-watch on Netflix. 

You are being replaced.

A quick walk around almost any town square will be most educational.  HELP WANTED signs will be in nearly every window. Under the guise of a virus with a similar mortality rate as the flu, the country has been decimated. Small businesses are closing down all over the country, primarily because of policies set forth by this administration.

Unless you happen to use other search engines like Mozilla or Firefox, you will learn nothing about the millions of new immigrants pouring across our southern border.  It is an invasion of our country put in place by the Biden Administration.

Those new, soon-to-be citizens will happily take those jobs starting at $15 an hour.  While you fiddle, Rome will burn.

The distractions are plenty.  They seem crazy strange because they are. In an everyday world, we would not be entertaining the idea that a baby can decide what gender it wants to be.  We would not be cowing to those that feel like they are better than you.  We certainly would not be bullied by those same people who feel aggrieved because the media told them that they should be.

It appears as if our country is being usurped by a communist regime. The actions taken by the press and this administration are similar to actions taken under MAO Stalin and even Hitler. Stalin once said the sharpest weapon in his arsenal was the written word.

If you want to know who is controlling you, look around to see which groups that you cannot speak ill of. Those are the very ones who wish to destroy our constitution and remove your bill of rights.

No Mr. Biden, we will never yield our rights to the government. I will never give up my right to free speech.  

The brainwashed movements created from radical academia might think that’s a good idea but, those are the same people who ate Tide pods.  WTF is wrong with you? Is this what happens when you sit around smoking pot all day?

There are groups of people who are the ‘hold my beer and watch this crowd.’ You tide pod people make them appear brilliant.

If you knew history, you would know what is going on. The invaders from the south destroyed their countries, much like locusts in the fields. Brainwashed by their version of Pravda, they voted in the criminal element that pillaged the treasury. Now they are coming here to vote the same stupid way, giving power to the most corrupt politicians of our time.

My advice is to get off your butts and go back to work before all the jobs are occupied or outsourced. Learn what you can about multi-media giants. Then you too will see how propaganda is spread around the globe by people who wish to control the narrative. 

Nothing to see here, said the Wizard, pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.  PFFT

Once they have enough new voters to ensure they will never leave office, those handouts will dry up.  Foreign nationals will fill all those jobs that are available right now. All the jobs that can be; will be sent offshore, leaving gaping holes in our collective talents. 

The good news is, if we ever need to fight aliens or rob hookers, millions of you will fit right in with a pizza, a six-pack of beer, and a grandma that goes to sleep early, so she will not hear you playing video games all night.

You are selling your future for pennies on the dollar while the invading forces will march right in and take your place. Since January, we have had over a million new people enter this country. Your tax dollars are feeding, housing, and moving them around the country via chartered busses and planes.

These new folks are not tested for Covid or anything else for that matter. They are dumped off in cities around the country. While I feel they should all be sent to Delaware, convention centers in major cities are currently their destination. 

A media blackout at the border was instituted, much like the blackout that the Nazis ordered when the Brits took out one of their dams which flooded an industrial area.

‘Nothing to see here, play happy news, ask happy questions.”

The only reason the media drones on about Trump is they use him to trigger the masses.  If you are focusing your hate on a man that the media has convinced you is worse than Satan, you are not focusing on what the magician has in her other hand.  

With a million or more low skilled workers in the country since January, how many of those Help Wanted signs will be there when you finally wake up?

As for me, Covid has taken a toll on my business too. Without immediate changes, I will be forced to close the doors by year’s end. After three decades in business, that is not the end I wanted.

I am still writing, speaking, and what have you. For the record, I have more than paid my dues.  While this epistle might seem truculent in spirit, I promise it was written to grab your attention and not scold you. There was a time in my life I might have fallen into the tender trap of sleeping late, playing video games, and binge-watching TV.

I became a taxpayer at an early age. I wondered about that pay stub where small amounts were taken out for different entities.

You are taxed to death, and you don’t even realize it.

From income tax to universal fees and taxes, they take take take.  That tax code is created by those who are more sinister than Al Capone ever was.

A Multi-Billion Dollar idea to defeat Corona Virus

Do you realize how much science fact we have today came from science fiction writers like yours truly?

Many of you were surprised when the experts of the world finally admitted that the virus was airborne.

It is just common sense.  How can we capture the virus reducing its PPM to acceptable levels?

What are acceptable levels?

What if we design a mask that will become charged electrostatically as our breath passes through them?  The charge of material might capture the virus and other bacteria, dust, and so on.

What if we determine the charge of ambient particles of dust, viruses, and alike and create a generator of opposite polarity to attract them to the surface of some easily cleanable material like glass.

Where did the idea come from?

I am old school and have washed the surface of more than one CRT in my days.  The surface of the TV or computer screen before the flat panel is a dust magnet.  Why?  There was a 40kv charge just behind the mask of the picture tube, which attracted the electrons to the screen.

Viruses like the Coronavirus have little to no mass.  Their size is well into the NM (nanometer) range which is much too small to be captured by a typical mask.  Sorry folks, you have been lied to.  The mask does you little to no good. I know that those who create and sell masks appreciate your money but, as effective against the virus, nope.

If you can detect the scent of hand cleaner while wearing your mask, any virus can get into and out of your mask with ease.  The ester or molecule that you detect is in the MM (micro meter) range which is much larger than NM.

Now, if we could find a way to charge the mask electrostatically, you might have something.

If you make millions with my idea, remember where you read it.

Why am I not trying to market it?

Patent attorneys require thousands of dollars to spend time with you.  If they think you have something and you have cash, the next step is to get it protected in every country around the globe.  That is, on average, three thousand per country.

It is almost impossible for the little guy to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Large companies can push your idea into one of their facilities in some third-world country and develop it there, much as they do with pharma today.

The world needs a solution more than I need to figure out how to make money on an idea.

I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking about this idea. What of we put that electrostatic charge on the plexiglass that separates cubes, tables and so on?

Many of my novels have been pirated and translated into other languages.  What can you do?

Work for the betterment of humanity and let God sort out the rotten apples.

The destruction of America

Are you awake yet?

How is that Blue Vote working out for you?

If you want to destroy an adversary, one of the first things you do is buy off the media.  In years past, the way to conquer a country was to destroy the press by blowing up transmitters, burning newspaper outlets, or killing or locking up anyone who said something contrary to the new narrative.

This is how Hitler rose to power and why 17 million Jews were exterminated.

Communist countries strictly control the media or entirely state-run propaganda when anything is sent out into the ethos.

Along comes a media that pays every airport in the world only to play their station. So as people travel around the globe while waiting, they might get two or three hours of opinions put out as facts. We would call that propaganda.

These opinions are almost always emotional triggers.  This is how they control the masses. If you are angry, you will not think objectively. Could they be lying to you?  No, you won’t know because you are triggered.

I had a house guest recently who called every Trump supporter the worst kind of racists that could be.  The media she absorbs has her believing that Alveda King is a white supremacist. In her mind, if all Trump supporters were rounded up and exterminated, that would be just fine. In case you don’t know who Alveda is, she is the niece of Martin Luther King and an ardent Trump supporter.

Of course, none of this nonsense peddled by the media is true.

The demise of the Jews under Hitler had nothing to do with anything they did. Instead, he needed someone to blame for plundering the treasury and the country suffering through hyperinflation.

The Jews were better at business and they did well for themselves as they had a work ethic.  They were easy to set up as privileged.  It is an age-old ploy, the have’s vs the have nots. ‘It isn’t fair.’

The US is heading down that same road under this administration. If this administration gets their way, the country will be 40 trillion in debt in just a few years.  In debt to who?  China.

The media is still peddling anti-Trump rhetoric, including the infamous insurrection. But, they are hiding the truth of it from the public, making you believe it was worse than D-Day, Pearl Harbor, and 911 all combined.  They are lying.

Of all of the people that died that day, only one died of a violent act. That person was an unarmed woman who a cop shot in the neck.  The others either died of heart attacks or strokes.  These were middle-aged or older folks who had enough of the lies.  These were people whose lives had been decimated by the pandemic and were not getting any assistance from their government.

Many of these folks are still sitting in solitary confinement in a DC Jail for Trespassing.

There was no violence by the protestors.  It was not a riot. Trespassing hardly equates to what the media is selling.

Along with the media is social media.  They, too, are carrying water for someone, but who?

Someone in Congress needs to grow a pair and stop what is going on before we are all forced to learn Mandarin.   I have no issues with any people of any country.  It is their governments that I have problems with.

Our government is under assault by those same forces who answer to the almighty dollar, not what is best for the American People.

If you are angry, you are being triggered.  It is that simple.

Trump and his supporters are not what the media is portraying them to be.  Think about that. For the last few years, the press has been dehumanizing Trump and his family, and his supporters.  When in our history have we stooped so low as to sway the results of an election?  

Would you stand idly by while our boys in uniform rounded up 74 million fellow Americans and sent them to re-education camps, aka an American version of Auschwitz?

One of our news anchors was on a late-night show musing about how we re-educate 74 million folks. 

My last houseguest would stand idly by and watch. She is that much of a believer she would turn her back on them, believing that they had it coming.  

To be that willing to believe the worst in folks, there already has to be a certain amount of hate in your heart.  I think my friend is more of a racist than she thinks she is.

The German folks of WWII did just that as their once neighbors were stripped of their businesses, homes, and personal belongings and sent to live in slums while concentration camps were built to house them. The press dehumanized them, forcing them to identify with that yellow star.  Maybe Trump supporters will be forced to have MAGA tattooed on them.  Where are we headed?

It was a redistribution of wealth from the Jews to the German people. Does this sound familiar? 

We are not a racist country.  It is those who put a color in front of people that are racist.

What can you do?  Firstly you need to have a dialogue with those that don’t see things as you do. You need to understand why they feel the way that they do.  As stated, some of it is just innate human nature.  Get over it.  Skin color does not make you any better or worse than the other person. 

PR firms use science to create this bigotry to herd the masses.  They understand human nature, and they know how to craft a narrative that will motivate people in one direction or another.

Hate, Fear, and Anger are three robust tools for nudging people.  What’s wrong in the world, and who is to blame for it.

The country is broke, you live in misery, and the Jews are to blame for it.  That was all it took for the German folks to allow 17 million Jews to be slaughtered. 

This tax and spend administration is raping the treasury, and they will somehow blame Trump and the GOP for the problem.  We went from energy independence in just four months to total dependence on another country. Gas is now where it was pre-pandemic; Russia and the Emirates are now back in control of the oil supply and price, yet it is Trump’s fault.  How do those in the media sleep at night?

By the time you catch on that your dollar just doesn’t go as far, it will be too late. All of the prices of goods and services are skyrocketing. Your votes will be replaced by the millions pouring across the southern border.  Why are they coming here?  They are fleeing their repressive corrupt governments. Will they figure out why they were allowed to invade this country?  Nope…they will vote for the party that allowed it.

I hate to say this but, I would go after their advertisers and hit them in the pocketbook. Money is about the only thing these people seem to understand.  We could call it EQUITY.  PFFFT!

GeoThermalNuclearWar,

Blinding light or slow and sickly, what is your choice of death?

Would you like to play a game?

Only in the annals of fiction do we see something so idiotic.  Let’s play a game, shall we?  Um, I will send a thousand or so nuclear-tipped missiles at your country while you send a thousand or so at ours.  The rest of the nuclear world will get involved because, why not? It’s the only game in town.

China just lobbed a threat of Nuclear War against the US.  Why?  The Biden administration is being forced to ask the tough questions?  Where did the covid virus come from?

With emails from Fauci to the scientists at the lab recently surfaced, we now know that the likely source was the lab in Wuhan. 

Let’s put that into perspective.

3.69 million people have died because of this virus.  We need to have Nuremberg-style trials, and Fauci should be among the people to testify.  

It’s not just the US that wants answers; the rest of the civilized world wants to know where it came from, who authorized it, and how do we stop it from happening again.

This virus, unlike those viruses that target certain ethnicities knows no boundaries.  The folks that created it are just as vulnerable as those farmers in parts of the world that don’t even have electricity. 

Megalomaniacs need to be held to account. That is what a tribunal is for.  We don’t threaten our adversaries with nukes for asking questions. 

The game is high-stakes poker with no winners, should you make one mistake. 

Maybe some scientist like AOC could tell us how many nuclear explosions it would take to change the climate.  The squad seems to know everything about climate change but, perhaps they should bring in the other expert from England, Greta, you know, the girl with the deadly scowl. 

Even as our military seems focused on the correct clothing for pregnant officers and political correctness, I would not want to test them when it comes to who is offended by some woke bullshit.

There are no winners in this game.  Only losers.

Stoking the flames of racism as a distraction for what is happening in this world only goes so far. People are watching actions and not the news; they know it is propaganda for the woke bullshit.

They see that their paycheck does not go as far, and Gas is right back to pre covid prices even though many are still not driving. Why did someone kill our energy independence and give it to Russia and the Emirates again?  Why Joe?  Why weaken the US at the expense of strengthening our adversaries?

Do you think that the American people are that stupid as not to notice, or are more race wars your answers to the distractions?  There are many useful idiots out there that can occupy any city you like for a price.

Speaking of Race, did you know that the Tulsa Race Massacre was perpetrated by the Ku Klux Klan, democratic society for the advancement of whites. Yes, the Democrats were behind the massacre, and yet Biden foolishly shined a light on it, I would guess in hopes that nobody would figure it out.  

Many believe the Civil War was between the north and the south, but not so.  Democrats loved their slaves and did not like Lincoln and his ilk trying to say that the Black man was equal to the White man, which he is.  Can you imagine being so full of yourself that you think your skin color makes you better than anyone else? I cannot.

The Civil war was between the ideals of Democrats vs. Republicans. 

It took a war to sort out the facts from fiction, costing Lincoln his life in the process.

As recent as LBJ (Democrat) who famously said, I’ll have those N**** voting Democrat for the next 200 years.  Care to bet if he knew any KKK members?

Biden admired Byrd a famous KKK leader.  True story.

Snopes and others try to downplay it, saying there is little evidence of it but, there is a video of him saying it.  Nice Try Snopes.  BTW Snopes is run by democrats, biased much?

Why racism?

Our emotions control us, and everyone that is in power knows this.  That is why just about every news blip you see on your phone has an emotional hook in it. 

If we wanted to stop racism, we would stop talking about it. I know of nobody that judges someone by how much melanin they have in their skin.

Knowledge is power, and education is the key to a successful life.  Hate will shorten your life.  Hate only hurts you.  BTW, I would go to the library for your knowledge as the internet is constantly scrubbed of things that liberal-leaning folks don’t like.   Much like Facebook, google, youtube and Twitter, it will never see the light of day if it does not fit the narrative.  

When they shut down Parlor, anyone who is the least bit fair-minded should have gone ape shit bonkers. Much like the Robin Hood app pulling the plug when the GameStop fiasco began.  Those that were bidding were playing by their rules, and someone in control stopped them.  IS the stock market fair? Not for thee, only for them.

Paper books from the time are more reliable than anything you read on the internet.

As far as nuclear war… Well, that would take care of all of the hate in the world as the cockroaches would be the only creatures to survive it. Radioactive fallout, much like the coronavirus, knows no boundaries either.  Your best bet would be to learn where the targets would be and go there before the first blinding light occurs.  Better to go out quickly than die a miserable lingering death of radiation sickness. No, there are no safe places on this planet if anyone is that stupid, demented, or just crazy.

I was speaking with a friend of mine about current events when we touched on the UFO stuff that is supposed to be released.  I said, “I hope there are aliens, it would be nice to have some intelligent life to speak with.”

Obviously, I was overstating things but the point is, if you read the news blips and dare, I say it, watch the news you too might conclude that we have gone bonkers as a people.  Who in their right mind pulls a gun on cops?

If China created this virus, which it looks like they did, someone needs to be held to account.

It’s not the people, it’s the government who gave their blessings.

If Fauci was involved, he too needs to be held to account.

Those are my thoughts for today, I hope you all are well.

Assuming China was saber rattling to clatter the bones of a rather geriatric basement dwelling executive who often is not sure what day it is, I will continue writing my latest thriller.

Told from the eyes of an unreliable narrator, with some paranormal activities, it should be a good read.

A Few Thoughts on life, climate change and You

How are you holding up?

I pray that you all have been keeping safe and well.  The world is upside down at the moment. 

An impromptu trip to Hospital reminded me of just how fleeting life can be.  What could have been Covid was something else.  Fever and two weeks in bed I am still recovering.  Either the tests are flawed, or the staff are students, and unsure of which end of the stethoscope goes where.  

From the looks of my body, after they finished attempting their ritual bloodletting, I am thinking someone relaxed the rules on what it takes to be a medical professional.  Sorry if that offends, had you been me, you would understand.

I spent a large part of April with a fever and medicated. Medical facilities were such that I was not in dire enough straights to garner a room, so I suffered at home.

Fever can be an interesting trigger for horrible nightmares, visions, and close personal chats with those that have passed years, if not decades prior. Yes, I am talking about spooky stuff.

There is a paradigm shift in the world.  The pandemic might be the cause, or the tool.  I suspect the latter. I don’t think we have seen the other shoe drop where this pandemic is concerned.  My research into vaccines and what they are doing with them vary.  Either it takes me to sites that tell you everything else is fake news, take the shot, yada yada or, you read on genomics, happen to have more than a passing understanding of the subject and realize that there is a real danger in messing with RNA.  That is how we got here in the first place.

Who, what sane person takes a virus that in and of itself is dangerous and thinks, ‘now, how could I make this more transmissible and increase the damage that it does to the host?’

If we knew the truth, we would probably convene trials reminiscent of Nurnberg.

Reported on several sites, the lab in Wuhan had sloppy controls, funding from other countries, and supposedly, Fauci was involved.  Let that one sink in.  If true, anything he said would be very suspect.

Just because you can, does not mean that you should.

We have enough nukes pointed at each other around the world to turn the planet into dust.  Why?  Are we that insecure as a race?

Over three and a half million have fallen to this virus. Is the plan to weed out the old, sickly and so on much like in the wilds of the animal Kingdome?  Is this tied to Climate Change and some magic number of humans to resources?  Are we revisiting Hitler’s Eugenics on Steroids?

As for Climate Change, It is bullshit.  Here is why.

When a 12-year-old girl becomes the lightning rod for a cause championed by non-other than a privileged girl, ex bartender who couldn’t spell Celestial Mechanics, you know there is an issue.

There is power and big money in cow farts and controlling your lives. 

This winter was unseasonably colder for us in the south.  This July, August it will be warmer than last year, and it is predictable.

Celestial mechanics, the movement of the heavenly bodies, plays a part in the majestic dance we are in with the other planets, moons, etc. 

Gravity is the key driving force that regulates this dance.

Our sun goes through a cycle much like everything else in nature, including us humans.  Where the sun is concerned every 11.5 or so years, it has a period.  Crude, but to the point.  The sun’s face gets some acne, a zit or two appear, and at times those pimples erupt.  We call them solar storms.  Sluffing off large amounts of solar stuff into the cosmos, if you are in the direction of the flair, much like your mirror if you squeeze your zits, there are now spots to contend with.

We get pretty dancing lights in the different extreme north or south hemispheres, and we are also at heightened risk of skin cancer from cosmic radiation.

The Thunberg’s and the AOC’s of the world will find some cause to rally around calling it exhaust from your immaculate burning car, but that is what stupid people do; they become shepherds, leading the sheep, even more foolish people, off cliffs.

In reality, the menstrual cycle of the sun is regulated by our protector and wandering star, Jupiter.

Much like the three wise men followed the Eastern star to find Jesus, we should be thankful it is there.  Its gravity is so dense that it plays minesweeper, capturing many wayward fast-moving rocks that might end our puny lives in a heartbeat, much like the dinosaurs before us.

Jupiter has such an immense gravitational field that it drags the sun’s core over a half-million miles closer to it, as it traverses its orbit ever oh say, 11.5 years. 

Wait, doesn’t the sun have its menses every 11.5 years? Could it be that there is no internal mystery of the cyclical nature of the sunspot cycle?

As it happens, this winter, not only was Jupiter tugging on the sun dragging it a half-million miles further away from our lovely little planet but, Saturn is also in conjunction with Jupiter.

Saturn is also a gas giant. I would surmise it does a fair amount of changing the core dimensions of the sun, shifting its center of gravity, and so on all on its own.  With both gas giants dragging on the sun in one direction, how much further will the core be nudged?

Well, kids, this July August guess where the earth will be positioned?

Yep, between the sun and those two gas giants.  If you could stand on the sun and look into the ‘night sky, you would see the earth, Jupiter, and Saturn all lined up within a few arcseconds of each other.  With each body exacting some attraction on the sun, this summer will be warmer than others.

The climate change people will beat their chest and demand more money from you to use less efficient forms of energy to save the planet. Now you have fodder to push back.  Knowledge is power.  Critical thinking is part of the process. Greta and her ilk are used as pawns by the rich and the powerful to control the masses.  Her Glower and adulation by Time Magazine, who also praised the likes of Hitler and Stalin, should be your first clue that you are reading the wrong rags. We are controlled and manipulated by multimedia conglomerates who own the politicians.

I am all about a clean environment.  I also know there are no free lunches and no perpetual motion machines.

Visionaries like Musk are who we should be looking for.

As for the virus, the more I learn, the more upset I am that this might not be the first such contagion released on the world. 

Back in our history, Smallpox was released on the indigenous population. If ever we needed that Thunberg scowl, that would be such a place

Here is some more glower material for those of you who study such things.

Radioactive dust in the form of Zinc Cadmium Sulfide was dropped on cities coast to coast by your very own military, exposing millions to toxic radioactive substances. They did this as part of cold war feasibility studies on attacking cities or countries with airborne agents.  Little did they know, years later we would have a virus that was .001 nm in size, more virulent and deadly than Hitler’s mustard gas, and would be transported by people.

While I admire the tenacity of the Hog’s, Thunberg’s, and even the AOC’s of the world, I wish to god you would educate yourselves.

You three and your ilk are like No Toes McGrew… Ready Fire Aim.  You want the facts; follow the damned money.

Guns are not the issue; sick people with severe mental anomalies are the problem.  With the pandemic, it is worse, not better.

Climate change is all about greed.  Yes, this inexpensive way of doing things works, but how can we nudge you into paying much more for less?  

Freon is the perfect example of how chemical companies lobbied the US to outlaw a perfectly efficient gas for air conditioners for a less efficient form that wears out equipment four times as fast and is much more expensive. This cheap gas is still used in other countries, not in the US, because our lawmakers sold out to the chemical giants.

These last few months have been tough.

If you know someone who, or perhaps you suffered a personal loss, you have my heartfelt sympathies.

As you might suspect, I know many people from what I do.  I would need both hands and feet to tally the close personal acquaintances that have passed in these last few months. I am waiting for Zoom to capitalize on Virtual funerals.

Mental illness is by far one of the most significant issues we face as a race.  Violence around the globe is on the uptick. Domestic disturbances are off the charts, and personal attacks on people they didn’t even know are reported more often.

Here in the states, shootings are frequent with the spark, often as simple as cutting someone off on the motorway, even by accident.  

Young girls, teenagers murder a peer for reasons as of yet unknown.  Part of me thinks it was to video it and get her five minutes of fame.  Plunging a knife into the chest of a classmate and former friend over an argument, video it, and brag about it.  On her own phone video, she tells her friends ‘I stabbed the bitch in the heart.’ Sure, Guns are the problem.   NOT.

If your emotions are triggered, you’re being manipulated. Preachers have been using this method for years, holding out your eternal salvation as a way to get part of your wealth, and worse, your time.  Business execs are more upfront, dollars for hours worked.  Yes, we are all whores.

Then there is the lowest of the low, politicians who enslave vast populations by paying them not to work.  Idle hands are the devil’s workshop.  If you are paid not to work, how likely are you to get into trouble with all that spare time?

They know this, and they don’t care.  Vote the right way, and what happens to you, your family, and so on is none of their concern.

Live on the streets in run-down, crime-ridden cities and vote when it is time.  Pitiful.

If you stomach the news, you might be tempted to believe it is a race thing.  That is what the talking heads all say, it must be true. That would be a lie.

Melanin has nothing to do with what kind of life you have.  If the desire to learn new skills and develop talents has been removed, our natural tendency is to take the path of least resistance.  Those of us who have had to scratch at the dirt, claw our way up from the ground to eat, appreciate opportunities.  That my friends is the real difference between privilege, and non. Flipping burgers as a child while going to school was a privilege.  That entry level job taught me the value of work.  The friends I grew up with, who were handed everything in life did not do so well.

What am I doing?

I am working on a thriller that is modeled after my Kelly McGuire novel.  This Story has a paranormal feel to it and is written from the 1rst POV.  This is an unusual style for me so stay tuned when it will be ready for pre-release.

Yes, all of the ideas and opinions in this blog are mine.  No, I have not borrowed anything from anyone in scientific circles. Much like my argument that meteors can have their own mini moons orbiting them, the concept of the sun’s cycles are mine.

Every so often I get an e-mail about the variety of stuff that I write.  People are rather bemused by the fact that I have written books on how to be successful in the adult entertainment industry.

When E.L. James wrote 50 shades, she did not want people to know who she was until she became rich.   

I am not ashamed of trying to assist those that are attempting to make a go of it, modeling on web cam.  I am not ashamed of any of my over 25 million published words. I am still scratching at the dirt, the walls and yes, the glass ceiling, because that is who I am.

As my craft continues to improve, I might go back and ‘fix’ some of my earlier works.  I try to look forward, and not backward.  Those two how to manuals took me less than a day to write each and they have assisted many.  If that is your version of scratching, God Speed.

If you are a regular to my blog, thanks so much. It has been a while since I had anything of value to contribute.  

Much Love -TW
