The Joy of Writing

Major revision of Tipping Point coming soon.

Hello and welcome to the lair of TW.  Yes, it is a lair…Why do you ask?

From this point on the planet, I can love whom I love.  I don’t hate but I kill with exemption from the laws of the land.  From my little den, I can blow up worlds, or create them.  Reprimanding bad boys or girls is a pastime with which I take great delight in doing.

The target of chastisement is as naughty or as nice as I choose to be at that moment.

Writers live in our own little world and that is a good thing.  When you walk into my dungeon, you can see the clean shiny plasticized beds with chains and cuffs ready to restrain you.  When you see the whips crops and other things on the walls your bottom has a tinge of pain that travels through your body to that sexual organ that sits atop your shoulders.  The brain is the most powerful sexual organ of them all, and most are clueless.  They must be taught.

As writers, we can take you there.  On your kindle or nook, you escape the doldrums of your nine-to-five world.  You and others, join me.  The journeys are as real as you want them to be. While it is just you and me lying in your bed, you search the crevasses of my mind looking for some love that you are missing.  Maybe it is an adventure you seek.  There on those pages, we take flight to lands unknown to humanity.

Have you been naughty?  We can take care of that too.  Through Tiffany in that reform school, we can modify your behavior, in the safety of your own world. Password protecting your E-reader is a great idea if you don’t want intruders in our world.

Maybe, just maybe you are tired of the politics of this realm and are ready to leave it. Don leaves this world while on the ISS orbiting it.  Can you imagine what he must have been thinking as the Starduster sucked the ISS into one of its smaller cargo bays?

If that were you would anal probing cross your mind?  Would you be like “oh hell no, where is the gun?”

Maybe you would be, I can handle this…

Don learns much about himself and humanity in Saga of the Starduster, which is still my best seller.

I have over 32 novels selling around the globe.  Some more than others.  If you are following me on this blog, you know Tipping Point is going through a re-write.

Here is the skinny on that novel.

One Friday afternoon I am flying back from the west coast.  The sun is at our tail, and there on the ground are many wind turbines churning away.

The idea of “free” energy hit me. That evening with a glass of merlot, Tipping Point was born and published complete with cover art.

I gave it away on Kindle Unlimited to entertain you who follow me.

Joining yet another writers group, they bludgeoned me over those ten thousand words.  One even chastised me telling me “publish nothing without having it…” you get the picture.

With my novels selling around the globe I took what she said about half seriously.  This work was never meant to be literary genius.  I wrote it in three hours for Pete Sakes.  I wanted to start the conversation about climate change, and what man is doing to the earth with these changes.  That is why I gave it away.

One thing that sprang forth that got my attention is that many fell in love with Sam.

“I love Sam too.”

Sam deserves better than ten thousand words.

“I took that to heart.”

On my computer is a novel sitting at 86K words that is the new version of Tipping Point.

Instead of three hours of Merlot writing, I have about three hundred hours in it to date.  The good news is that if you already bought or read for free the 10 K word version, this will be free to you.  I will leave it on Kindle unlimited too.  This is a boon for Jeff Bezos and not me but here is the deal I did not realize until speaking with an agent.

If you publish on Amazon, you keep the rights to your work.  Agents are trolling Amazon looking for new authors.

The plan is to give this away for next to nothing, allowing Jeff to come up with more money for his divorce.

You the readers can either purchase it for $3 or read for free on Kindle Unlimited.  If an agent finds this, it won’t last long.  My beta readers love it…

Now you can climb aboard Air Force One, with Sam and the President.   Take a world tour on the taxpayer’s dime while keeping up with their awkward love story. You too can meet the Queen and experience pomp and circumstance.  As you also fall in love with the characters, see if you can follow with her scientific logic on her diagnosis.

Since this is a “give away price,” I would love feedback.

Here is the deal… What is published is before I went cray-cray on it.  It is a fast read with errors and fun things that are no longer in this version.  The new version has a dusting of fifty shades in it.

Wait, how can I worry about the world slowing down, and now I am spanking someone???

Yes my pets, yes indeed, my trusty hand is once again looking for a bottom to warm up, through the literary process.  Will it be yours?  Have you been naughty?

Follow along so you will know when your carriage to my lair is here.

Climate Change—Fact or Fiction?

 

The short answer is, both.

The real question is “Does man have an effect on the climate and if so what is it?”

As “man subdues” the planet, man changes the environment.  This is a fact.  With less forest and more city or pavement, man indeed changes the dynamics of the world or weather.

For instance, you might have noticed that tornadoes rarely strike a large city.  Is it because of pure statistics or something else?

Something else is the correct answer.  The sun hits the surface of the earth and causes what?  The sun strikes grass or fields and causes rising air currents but not near as much as those areas of the planet covered in concrete.  Concrete absorbs the sunlight thus letting out much heat, causing high-pressure areas to form over the major cities.

Here in Dallas, we end up with Ozone alerts as an area of high-pressure forms over Dallas.  Houston and other large cities often see similar stories.  As unstable weather approaches a dome of high-pressure, the weather is often moderated by the “stable” air often mitigating the effects of the unstable air mass approaching it.

All of this concrete certainly attributes to climate change too.  How much and to what extent are the questions we need to address.

Al Gore and his ilk would like you to believe it is all about carbon emissions because they want to quantify how much each thing that you do expels greenhouse gasses so they can tax you on it.

The tax will not limit your driving habits or the use of your homes air conditioning; it will just be more expensive as those politicians who devise such schemes get money from those who print, track and keep up with this tax.

Yes, we need to be good stewards of our planet but paying some tax and not changing our habits is not the answer.  A perfect example of this is Freon.

In the 1970’s Dupont and other chemical companies sold Freon which we all came to love and adore as it keeps our beer cold. It also keeps our cars and houses cool, and it makes our shopping experiences tolerable.

R12 and R22 were too cheap.  It was and is a very efficient gas, but there was money to be made if a case could be made to replace it with something else.

This gas has fluorocarbons in it which are destructive to the ozone layer.

“Prove it!”

They point to the ozone layer over the Antarctic is getting thinner.  Hmmmm

Don’t you suppose that there might be other reasons for this?  “But TW, they are the scientist; don’t you think that they know?”

“I think that almost anyone can be bought.”  Putting that aside let’s talk about the evidence, shall we?

I like to follow the money when something like this comes along.  Fluorocarbons are heavier than air.  For those chemicals to get to the stratosphere in any quantity to break down the ozone layer as they are claiming, tell me just how in the world are they getting there?

“They aren’t”

saturn pole

I don’t know if any of you saw the pictures from Jupiter or Saturn.  They showed the poles over each planet.  Saturn has a hexagonal clearing over the pole.

jupiter north pole

Jupiter has a large vortex over its pole much like the eye of a hurricane only much more significant.  Don’t you think that it is possible that a gas heavier than air might be thinner over the pole much like a centrifugal effect might have on it?

Some people are sheep and will buy whatever the Shepard tells them.  In the case of fluorocarbons, a pound of R22 Freon went from a $1 a pound to over $100 a pound.  I have no idea if you can even still get R12.  Pressurized cans of chemicals used in industry and residential applications went from a little over a $1 a can to $15 a can.  Canned air cost over $5 to $8 a can… Dust air…  The same chemicals that “kill the ozone” are still in them; they just cost more.  WTF?

“If fluorocarbons can get up to the stratosphere why can’t the excess Ozone that we generate, get there too?”

The gasses you use to cool things off in your cars and houses today are much less efficient and work at much higher pressures.  Translated, that means that your equipment has to work harder, which means that you will have more frequent breakdowns and higher and more frequent service calls.

The cost to replace the coil on your AC unit in your attic is around $1800.  With the new freon, you will be replacing it.  Why?  the metal in the coil cannot stand up to the higher pressures.

The folks that come up with this nonsense are part of the DC elites or Gods that protect you the little people or insects from yourself.  What they are really doing is taking more money from you while lying to you.

How much can they tax you and charge you without creating an environment where the masses just give up?  How much of a load can they put onto the middle class before they just say screw it, and figure out how to live off the government like so many already do?

Once they do, it is game over.  Socialism depends upon someone working to take care of the very rich, the gods; and the very poor.  You want to talk about slavery, this is it!

The simple facts are the poor people pay little into the system as the tax code is written in such a way to protect them.  The Gods or elites from the SWAMP also don’t pay their share as they have ways to protect their ASSets because once again the tax code, all Ten thousand pages of it protect them too.   Of course, they wrote it to do that and they don’t want to change it as they are very happy with the way that it takes care of the swamp creatures.

The middle class who has this can do attitude, work two or more jobs to try and make ends meet while watching up to 40% of their income go to stupid shit!

If you want to understand why Hillary lost, she was all about more of the same. The middle class who is being vilified by everyone was the reason a nonpolitician who is a populist won the election.

The middle class has had enough.

Is the climate changing?

Possibly, but not near as fast as the political climate is in this country and around the world.  I would not at all be surprised to see the middle class be more vocal, taking an active voice in this politically charged environment we have today between the alt right, alt left and the damned fools who have no idea what communism or socialism is.

I would actually like to see some ANTIFA folks come up against some East Texas Red Necks!  I think that their education that day would be most valuable.  When the fascist become the hooded thugs pretending to be anti fascist someone is delusional.

Our educational systems are failing our youth, and I for one would not persuade a young person to go into tens of thousands of dollars in debt to listen to some old hippie teach socialistic ideals. Learn a trade and develop your own ideology regarding your social structure.  Turn off the TV, stop going to movies and go into your society and serve.  Get to know your neighbors and by all means, stop listening to those who try to indoctrinate you with false narratives.

Regarding the climate, the earth has shaken off much worse things than what man has or could ever do to it.  Mankind is like fleas on a dog (insects or parasites.)  One day some super volcano will erupt, or some dumbass will think you can win an argument with nukes and humanity will be but a memory on a shiny disk attached to a cold dead metallic object hurtling through space away from this planet.

Carl Sagan and his crew put such a disk on one of the Voyagers.  I bet it did not have any of our crappy histories on it, only our good stuff.  So when those aliens come peeking around after finding this disk, they will not understand what happened to this race of life called man.

All of the Al Gore scare tactics will be reverberations or harmonics or echoes of the humanity of what man was, as the planet cycles itself once again through another ice age.  After enough time to cleanse the “dog of its fleas” has passed, a new breed of creature will show up, and it will start anew.  Will another Cain Kill another Able?

Without a history to learn from, most probably.

One of the things that we all have in common is this:

7

24

52

12

365 and sometimes 366

What is it?

Live for today, my friends!  Love one another, they don’t expect you to do that.  Controlling you with emotions like hate is easy.  Triggering the masses with lies is their method.  They call it propaganda.

Tipping Point

How do you get something for nothing?

Tipping Point

How do you get something for nothing?

As a person who understands physics, I can tell you that you don’t!

To obtain energy; fuel of some sort must be spent.

Targeting the moon with a laser for Nasa is an easy feat.  When you want to measure the distance from the earth to the moon you bounce a laser off a mirror placed on the moon, calculate the amount of time it takes to return and Viola!  You know the distance from the earth to the moon.

When Nasa could not hit the target, a red flag went off around the world.

Samantha, a genius in her own right, ask the question, “how do you get something for nothing?”

With tens of thousands of windmills extracting energy from the wind, she asked the question, could these be slowing down the earth causing the weather patterns to shift?”

Believe it or not, this is a romance!

Yes, it is an enjoyable Sci-Fi adventure of the likes you might see on the SCI-FI channel right after Sharknado, but it is that kind of story.  Many of my readers have mentioned that the SCI-FI channel should make a movie out of it.

If it ever happens maybe I will get to write the script!

I have been thinking about writing a screenplay to see if it improves my writing, has any of you done that?   With a screenplay, you have to think of every detail, which I think might improve one’s writing.

Someone told me that there is software designed for that purpose.

Anyway, Tipping Point is a fun lunchtime read on Kindle Unlimited, or you can support yours truly by actually spending a couple of bucks.  Think about it, for half a cup of coffee you can be entertained.

Tipping Point is a young adult kind of book with a tiny bit of implied naughtiness.  A tame version of my usual reads.
