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.

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.

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.

Can you be a household name for doing a good deed?

If your dead, a state funeral does you no good.

There are ways to get famous, this way would not be my preferred way.

I am not sure what the world is coming to but, listen to this…

A neighbor reported that her cat got out and is missing.  It was the middle of the week.  My daughter was engrossed in some video games, and it was a nice day.

I walk the area on occasion but hardly ever in the middle of the day.  What harm can it do to take a walk and look for a stray cat?

As I chat with her about life and things in general while walking the sidewalks where the cat went missing, we see a cop pass by.  There are signs up with descriptions of said cat.

Without warning, the car turns around and now appears to focus on us. Two officers that get out to investigate us.  I wonder if they are there to help look for the cat?  Probably not.   

My daughter is a child, and I am not exactly threatening, but, rapidly the wrong end of a gun is pointing in our direction from the other officer.

“Woe, what the hell, officers?”

Separating us, my daughter is told to walk backward toward the other officer.  This child still has issues walking forward without tripping. Pffft.  I watch her, she is terrified. I am not exactly calm and collected, but I know not to do anything that would cause a trigger pull.

If she had tripped walking backward would that cop have shot her as she moved in an unexpected manner?

“We got a call of suspicious activity, and you two are out in the middle of the day, don’t seem natural.”

Are all Texans this slow, or do you have to be not real bright to wear the uniform?  Asking for a friend.

“We are not armed, and we live here.”

“Where is here?”

“Next street over.”

“I need to see ID.”

The end of whatever pistol the other officer was pointing at me looked like a cannon as I slowly reach for identification. 

“What are you doing out this time of day?”

I point to the sign on the post not twenty yards away.  They act as if they don’t believe me because nobody gives a damned about someone else’s cats or problems…

I do. What if it were my cat?

The other officer has my daughter by the car and is asking her the same types of questions.  Later she told me that the officer thought we were nuts to be looking for a lost cat that wasn’t even ours.

At least no more guns are pointing at us.

I happen to conceal carry; I did not have it on me then but, one has to wonder, what if?

Since this happened to me, a white person, I felt like it might be wise to pass on some salient info regarding concealed carry and cops.

By this story, it is not hard to tell that their anxiety level is much higher than what they might let on.  Like you and I, they deserve to go home to their family in one piece at the end of the day.

Whether you conceal carry or not, and I don’t give a shit what color you are, keep your hands in plain sight.  Statistics prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that cops kill more white people than black folks.  I realize that doesn’t fit the narrative but, facts are immutable.

If it is at night, pull over, put your car in park, turn on the dome light, roll down the window and place your hands on the dash.  You don’t want to be an accident.

Never adjudicate your case on the side of the road; the cop does not give a crap about your reasons for whatever you were doing that caused him or her to pull you over.  Yes, sir or ma’am or no sir or ma’am is about all you need to say.  A medical emergency is probably the one excuse you might offer up but make sure it is a medical emergency.

If I can have guns drawn on me while walking through my neighborhood, it could certainly have gone down a lot worse with a child by my side.

If you carry, when they ask, hand the cop your license to carry at the same time you give them your driver’s license.  They will ask you if you are armed.  In truth, they will know more about you before they ever talk to you than you would expect.  They will see if you are registered as concealed carry and if you have insurance, where you live, and so on.  The database is pretty reliable.  What you hand them is matched against it.

Never reach for your gun; you will end up dead.

Please keep your hands where they can see them.  Most probably, he or she will disarm you, allow them.

At the end of the day, it will be a story you can tell, or like me, blog.

I was unaware that Gladys Cravats from Bewitched lives in my neighborhood.  

The moral of the story, keep your cat or dog locked up when people are working in your house. Don’t expect me to go looking for it ever again.

The times we live in are much more dangerous.  Tensions are high as hate, racists acts, and all forms of violence sell air time.  The media has a 24 7 news cycle, and without people doing evil, stupid things they would not have advertisers paying them for air time. Emotional drama sells.

If things calm down, they will manufacture something even if they have to make it up out of thin air.

Had I been black and been shot for looking for a neighbor’s cat the press would have played the story for days.  Since I am white and didn’t get shot, it’s not worth mentioning. Unless, of course, you are looking down the wrong end of a gun carried by some cop who might be rattled.

They don’t need to be defunded; we need more money for more and better training.  We should be able to offer them good wages so we can attract the brightest and the best.  If they have the power of life or death in their hands, don’t you want the most brilliant and best wearing the badge?

Are we Headed this way again? Part II

It seems someone needs to learn some history.

When we speak of the Holocaust, the number 6 million is tossed around.  Those that even think about it want to dismiss it as quickly as they read the word Holocaust.  It is unpleasant.

It is more than unpleasant. Indeed it is deplorable that humans were treated in such a callous manner.  Blamed for something that was not of their doing, dehumanized by the minister of propaganda and several media outlets, they were the victims.  The Brown Shirts crawled out of the cracks from where scum usually lives and became the muscle of the Nazi party.

Good Arian boys and girls waved flags with the swastika to show their support of their  ‘dear leader’ while turning a blind eye to the atrocities unfolding in their midst.

There are many facts that even they didn’t realize or know.

Those trains carrying victims came from far and wide, much like a dragnet of sorts.  The actual number of victims is far closer to 17 million.  Let that number sink in… 17,000,000 and Change.

I am curious why we don’t hear the Jews looking for reparations.

History is rife with wickedness, and much of it is based on racism, or is it?

Nobody in their right mind would stand there today and argue that the slave trade before the civil war was a good thing.  Nobody certainly would stand on a soapbox and justify it or do anything to try and repeat it, would they?

The number of enslaved people from Africa is all over the map.  If you go with published data points, 12.5 million Africans were brought to the US from the 1500s to the 1800s.

Missionaries might have opened the door, using God as a cudgel to control the natives; it was not white people running around Africa rounding up slaves for deportation.

It was white people or people of lighter skin than those that they oppressed who brokered the transactions; however, they did not physically round-up anyone.

When the Spaniards purchased them, they were treated as livestock. That livestock was sold to them by Africans.  From buttons to baubles, the slaves sold to them were prisoners of war.  Those people would have been a food source to those who sold them.  Yes, they were cannibals.

They were conquered tribes, slaves, prisoners, females for sexual gratification, and yes, dinner.  If the truth offends you, stop reading this and go live in your delusions. 

Like the missionaries used God as a club, we don’t want to blame them because they were doing God’s work.  Really? 

Slavery existed long before bible-thumping opportunists went looking for ways to make money from dealing in human trafficking. While some missionaries genuinely believed in what they were doing, any thinking person should realize that using your salvation as a bargaining chip is evil.

This blog post is not about race relations.  I believe that thinking people realize that skin color does not make a difference in who you are.  Those who rely on skin color as a crutch own that problem, and it is up to them to see the light or continue to live in their delusional misery. After having a president of color, the proof is there for anyone who will open their fucking eyes.

Americans are not systemically racists. Those who claim we are have an ulterior motive, and it is evil.

In 2008 when Obama ran against McCain, I knew it was a farse.  McCain no matter what you think of him, was a Democrat.  Picking his running mate, they never put up a serious threat to Obama’s race. Nobody running a serious campaign would have picked her, as a running mate.

Republicans were duped time and time again by this man.

Hope and Change sold well in the media. As a PR person, that is a campaign I would have devised if I were working on it.

Still, people of all races voted for Obama, and the media was his cheerleader.  From the thrill up a leg to the fawning, obsequious talking heads of the media, owned and controlled by big corporations, the fix was in.  Manipulating the masses with emotionally charged issues, white people became the villains.

They did not count on those talking heads who were caught in too many lies. People of color, their base, began to question the democratic plantation.  They needed to find a new breed of voters who knew less history, but who?

Why not import a whole new population of voters, and oh yes, slaves to live on the democratic plantation?

Hillary had all the name recognition and branding she needed to have an easy win.  Unable to keep up with her opponent, she only hit the states with the highest number of delegates. She was quoted as saying that she runs as a Democrat because Democrats are stupid and easy to control.  She was and is her own worst enemy, and still, she blames everyone but herself.

She underestimated Trump.  She also underestimated people of color.

While the media attacked him mercilessly, nothing stuck; they attacked him, Melania, and his children. They made fun of her accent, playing to those who are racist.  When that backfired, one of his opponents sent nude pictures of her to all of his constituents in Utah, knowing full well the Mormons would never have anything to do with anyone who was immoral.  Little did they realize the evil person was the politician using every dirty trick in the book.

Trump and JFK have much in common; I will explain that link in a future blog.

With people of color leaving the plantation and women not dissuaded by the attacks on his character, the country ended up with someone who believed in America First.

Countries far and wide only think they have the power over the politicians; they don’t. As many who read this blog can attest to, repressive regimes are everywhere.  While this country is the last bastion of freedom, we are falling to the whims of large corporations and the elite.

That is the root cause of racism. It has little to do with color.  That is a lie told to the ignorant who believe everything they hear or read from the media.

Yes, some see a person of a different color and fain disdain for them, but it is not a color thing in truth.  It is much more rudimentary than that.  This issue goes back to the Holocaust.  

There is this mantra that most of us grow up with, study hard, work hard, and you will go far.  There are too many that never see that example.

The Jewish people have a work ethic and are disciplined.  Many folks of all colors work hard and see that someone like Obama can live in the White House and do what it takes to go far.  Some do not and instead depend upon the ‘governments’ to take care of them. Others, unfortunately, look for illegal or immoral ways to fund a lifestyle.

It isn’t just the drug dealers living on the edge; it is people in power that have become so corrupt that the laws don’t apply to them.  They use racism as a deflection technique to distract those of us who look behind the curtain. 

Those that depend upon free phones, free health care, free food, and free places to live typically are happy to stay on the plantation. They are told where their bread is buttered, and they vote accordingly. 

Those of us who keep our noses to the grindstone are the providers of their funds.  There are no free lunches; someone pays for them.

Today we have an unprecedented surge at the border from countries that have been so corrupt they can no longer afford to provide free stuff.  Those in charge will give to those who come here. However, they have a hand in your pocket to pay for it.

Much like the nomads of early history, they are going where there is still milk and honey.

These tens of thousands will accompany the over 20 million illegal, undocumented, pick your adjective people that cross our borders. I would not be shocked to learn that their governments are assisting in the migration as American dollars flow home from those who secure work or free stuff.

While the good people who profess their disgust of the word ‘illegal’ will welcome them in, it is not those people who will suffer from the overpopulation of migrants. 

They are the haves, that live in their gated communities, drive their nice cars, and send one of the maids out to the store to purchase what they desire. 

To show you just how out of touch they are, when Mrs. Pelosi stood next to her two, SubZero, 25 thousand dollar freezers, in her mansion, showing the media $16 a pint designer ice cream, many on the media took note.  How many of you realize that a SubZero brand freezer is $25K?  She has two.  How many of you buy designer ice cream at $16 a pint?

Now, how many of you have a side-by-side fridge freezer that came from Sears?   You know the one you had to finance at 24% interest over a year…   Maybe you didn’t have a Sears card and had to get it from Rent a center…  They are clueless about how we live.

It’s worse; she and her ilk are paid by you.  On top of that, they are working hard to keep wages low.

It was never about race; it is all about the have’s and the have nots.  Those who live in the gated communities, show up on the silver screen, or live in the country’s wealthiest county (DC), are totally out of touch.  They don’t know what it is like to triple lock your door at night or duck every time you hear a gunshot.

Those of us who do not live in a gated community, hear sirens on an hourly basis, or have the occasional gunshot wake us at night would not know how to react if we were to trade places with them.  

What would it be like to have armed guards around your house at night?

I am reminded of Montgomery Burns on the Simpsons, “release the hounds.”

Some of these migrants will be the ones with guns, the disrespect for human life and the law, and become part of our communities.

It was never about race; it has always been about the have’s and the have nots.

Archeological digs have found skeletons of early man who had his head crushed by their neighbor for what he or she had.  In many of these cases, the head was crushed because they ate the brains of those they killed.

Oh, and they used sticks and stones.

As these migrants filter into the country and end up in communities, jobs will be more challenging to come by for those who already live there.  Crime will undoubtedly increase, and the murder rate will increase too. 

Pay scales will decrease as there is more cheap labor…Slaves.

If they are kept in limbo, as they have kept the current 20 million people, more American dollars will be funneled out of the country to those very countries they have escaped.  Further, as long as they are ‘undocumented,’ they will live in the shadows. They are modern-day slaves. This administration knows it, wants the cheap labor, and, of course, their vote.

‘How much does a vote cost these days?  Asking for a friend.’

I am not saying the migrants are bad people.  They are leaving a country with limited funds to become slaves. The migration has been going on for decades. The politicians know it and facilitate it.   Follow the money.  When a public servant becomes a millionaire, they are probably crooked.  Why else would someone spend $19 million of their own money for a job that pays $154K a year?  Did we stop teaching critical thinking altogether, or is something in the water?

Today we have a high rate of catalytic converter thieves.  This theft is happening all over the country.  Some companies will readily buy them knowing they are stolen, providing the demand.  If the thief is not careful, it can cost up to four thousand dollars to get it fixed.

Those kinds of thefts are what I think will be the beginning of more significant problems. There are some complete morons who want to defund the police or take guns away from law-abiding citizens.

One such moron is a lawmaker in Texas who wants to make it more difficult for the law-abiding citizen to use deadly force to defend herself.

Biden once told the ladies if you are going to get raped, pee yourself, and then the rapist will not want to rape you.  This is coming from a guy that sniffs the hair of little girls.  Another lawmaker from a few years ago told women if they are going to get raped, lie down and enjoy it. 

What the fuck is wrong with these people?

Me, aim and pull the trigger until it stops making that loud banging noise.  When it just makes that clicking sound, you can stop.  Who knows, the asshole might be into golden showers.   Judged by twelve, rather than carried by six, is my motto.

Save the hate comments, don’t need them.

Before you vote, think carefully about who and why you are voting that way.  The media is not your friend.  If your emotions are tweaked, you are being manipulated.

Greetings Fellow Earthlings

What does Normal look like?

I am wrapping up a companion book to How to be a Camgirl.  If you don’t know what that is, it’s ok.  We don’t judge here and I am not about to start.  This book is called Camming for Couples.

While there are a few who will look down their nose at those who model, keep in mind that we all need to eat.  With the virus morphing and changing, much like actors on a screen, they do what they do. It is my hope that this non fiction book can assist them in their vocation.

The editor has it now, and I still have to come up with a book cover. 

What’s next?

Today marks the one-year anniversary of ‘two weeks to flatten the curve.’  What have you been doing with your time?

After I sent Camming for Couples off to the editor, I started a science fiction.  The damned thing has a virus as part of the problem, which undoubtably is being done to death. So, why write it?

Unlike our predicament here on planet earth, which is ruled by imbecilic creatures that should be in those nursing homes, my virus is a bit player.  Aliens are coming to the rescue.  Providing the method to save our skins, they are only giving us a hint at how to live from here.

Two chapters in, stay tuned.

Why write it?  Firstly, it is on my heart to write it.  Secondly, it is therapy to write it.  It amazes me just how many books have been written with the virus as the main bugaboo.  When Epstein was big in the news, I wrote Schadenfreude which was a novel about sexual impropriety on an island.  

You know he didn’t hang himself… I wonder what is to become of his girlfriend?  I would love to interview her after the trial.  Twenty-one days after we had minus 18.9 C today, we had 23.89 C.  Yes, the air conditioner was switched on…

That is the way we roll here in Texas.  From snow and ice to BBQ and Sunscreen. 

Ok, back to my latest novel, I have aliens to seduce.
