Just how large is the hook that caught that whale?

Hello fellow bloggers, authors, and friends by association!

So here we are climbing up the precipice of the week heading for another Wednesday.  Why do I have this image of a camel every time I think of Wednesday?

In my last blog, I wrote a five-minute hook to a novel that has yet to be created.

Guess what, I have since re-written the hook and am working on the first chapters.

Usually, most of my novels involve adult situations.  I am going to do my absolute best to create a YA novel involving magick, witches and coming of age scenarios.  One of my friends challenged me.

I want magick to be the central theme of the novel.

If you hang around other writers, it is fascinating how opinionated we are.  OMFG!

Do you know I got into a debate with some folks over how important the hook is?  Did you realize that some debate whether to have a prologue or not?

If you are a church-going person, does baptism mean dunk or sprinkle?  What difference does it make?  It is a symbolic act of submission to God and giving up your old way of life. Ha!

Leopards don’t change their spots, and you are never going to give up your sinful nature on this earth.  The act of baptism hopefully has you think about the sin, and possibly thinking first might dissuade you, or even have you feel contrite after the fact.

If you write chapter one or Prologue as long as there is a compelling reason for the reader to turn the damned page, it makes no difference what you call it.

Sprinkle or dunk?

Dunk!  Why?  When you want to drive a point home, you exaggerate the event.  I have witnessed people crying after baptism as they were sure that they heard God or something like that.  GREAT!

The pomp and circumstance of the Catholic church is what??? Exaggerating the event so it will stick.

I hear my characters calling me right now to stop blogging and write!

The prologue is that little exaggeration.  If you notice, the tease on the news is always exaggerated to either get you to turn to page 3A or…watch the My Pillow person with the large cross hanging around his neck.  Exaggeration is key.

When Christ was crucified, it was not enough to beat the crap out of him! By the way, there was so much blood loss; he would have died right there.

No, they had to have the ‘dead man walking,’ carrying his own Ginormous cross that had to weigh 200 pounds if not more, and, for added measures just so you might remember it, they placed the thorn of crowns on his head.  Wait there is more imagery for you.  They drove huge spikes through his hands and feet, and of course, as he perishes, they puncture him with a spear. Thunder roars and the curtain tears.  Got it!

Before the man dies, the executioners are selling his clothes to the highest bidder.  Such nice people we are. All of this imagery is to make you realize how blessed you are that he died in this horrible manner for the sins that you create even now.

The event is so horrific, so exaggerated that I personally can’t stand Easter.    Once a year, we sit in the pews and are convicted.  If you are a churchgoer you might be convicted at least once a week. That is, of course, the point.   So if you go to a Calvinist church you are reminded what a piece of crap you are every Sunday!   Who in the world wants to hear that?  If you suffer from depression, stay away from Calvinism, the man was an antisemite nut job as was Martin Luther.  Not saying they were totally wrong but realize, they were not mentally right.

If that offends you…Sorry.  I deal in truth, look it up.

Some tyrants use exaggeration to make a point. All throughout history, there have been horrible people in power who need to face the wrath of hell. ‘Wait another exaggeration!”

The lake of fire, or Dante’s Inferno, which is it? Inquiring minds want to know.

I personally think North Korea might be hell.  To make his point, this person has his enemy’s or criminals staked out and slowly crushed with a steamroller!  Do you think that might make the point?

We are no angels.

Hollywood has offered us many nightmares from Hannibal to chain saw massacre.  Not only do we have Hollywood bringing us violence daily, but, we have video games that are little more than simulators for learning how to kill efficiently.  I often wonder if they can cause PTSD.

No, it is the gun, or the knife, or the baseball bat, or truck, or chainsaw, or the poison, it has nothing to do with mental illness and or the person was pissed.

The early church was just as evil, making a point out of heresy by killing those who ‘sinned’ in most inhumane ways.

I could go on, but the point is an exaggeration.  “Did I exaggerate the point enough?”

For instance, if we wanted to do away with mass incarceration, bring back public hanging!

“Yes, public!  No, the guillotine is far too humane, and messy.  Let the masses watch them kick, as they choke and slowly perish.”

I often wonder if the victims of those murderers feel vindicated by listening to the criminal make noises and kick as the Wizard behind the wall pushes drugs through tubes that will put the murderer to sleep, before they administer the paralytic that stops his or her breathing, and then the heart. Do you suppose they make them wear a diaper as a last act of humiliation, so when they shit their shorts the guards don’t have to clean it up?

If you want folks to think twice about rape, incest, murder, breaking and entering, send the defective morons back to their makers, and do it in the public square.

The story of where Dracula came from might give most nightmares.  Look up Vlad the Impaler if this blog wasn’t enough to inspire some form of exaggeration against evil.

Now…back to the hook… Exaggerate some event with lots of imagery and call it what you will.  I happen to like prologues as I can move you into the story, introduce you to the main characters, and then I can sneak in the back-story in bite-size pieces.

Sprinkle or Dunk…?

Do you realize that some churches break up over this very question?  I think they are missing the larger picture.

I was thinking about Contact.  I love the writers of that show, I never met them, but I truly admire them.

When she travels through some ‘thing,’ the image of her father says something that has stuck with me all these years.

I am paraphrasing… “You have such great potential.  Your kind has such beautiful thoughts and dreams, and yet so many nightmares live in your most profound memories.”

When I witness what is going on in the world today, I am sad for humanity.  I cry for those in countries where the rule of law belongs to the elite.  I am saddened by those in this country who are so brainwashed they have no idea just how bad socialism is, and what it would do to us if they were successful in bringing that form of government to fruition once again.

Millions upon millions have died at the hands of socialists.  Those that did would probably opt for hanging, vs. starving to death.

No, I did not watch the debate; I have no desire to put that nonsense in my head.

I have to go think about magick, witches, and warlocks.

If witches melt when they get water poured on them, how do they drink?

Your Fifteen Minutes are Up!

Andrea Mitchell today compared The President of the United States to Stalin.

andrea mitchell

Here is a 71-year-old “journalist” who has so much hate for this president that she compares him to a monster who is responsible for the death of over 20 million people. Here are a few quotes from Stalin:

  • The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.
  • Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.
  • Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
  • Death is the solution to all problems. No man – no problem
  • Gratitude is a sickness suffered by dogs.
  • I trust no one, not even myself.
  • When we hang the capitalists, they will sell us the rope we use.
  • Mankind is divided into rich and poor, into property owners and exploited; and to abstract oneself from this fundamental division, and from the antagonism between poor and rich means abstracting oneself from fundamental facts
  • You cannot make a revolution with silk gloves
  • Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party.
  • If any foreign minister begins to defend to the death a ‘peace conference,’ you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new battleships and airplanes.

These quotes from Stalin are telling.  I want however to call your attention to the next to the last quote.  “Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party.”

They did not have TV and mass media in the late 1800’s but what they did have was print.  The press is the most potent weapon of all and Andrea Mitchell is part of that Pravda.  The MSM is at war with the United States.  Most of the Main Stream Media does not say anything positive about this administration even though the facts of what they are doing are glaringly apparent.

  • Best economy in years
  • Lowest unemployment for some groups “Ever!”
  • This country is respected again.

I could go on, but you might get some idea that I am some sort of sycophant for Trump and that would be untrue.

I look at the facts, and I do not subscribe to hate.  The MSM hates this man and what he is doing or, are they doing the bidding of someone else?

The far left want very subjugated citizens, and with things like Common Core, they want stupid ones.  This falls into another Stalin quote “Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.”

He is right!  When slavery was rife in this country, it was against the law to educate black people.  Why do you think that was? Why would slave owners make it illegal to teach them to read? Could it be that they did not want them to think or have an idea?

How are those video games and 300 + cable channels working out for you?

Common Core was the absolute dumbing down of the people, and you can now see it daily with kids who manage to find their way in front of a TV camera and espouse just utter gibberish.

This lady, if you listen to her for just a moment you will see that she clearly is not well versed on just about anything. She does know the right things to say to get you to vote for her.  “Free Stuff!”

13,206,428 people voted for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary.  Bernie and his ilk are more closely related to Stalin and monsters like him.  Trump is a Capitalist which Stalin clearly said: “When we hang the capitalists they will sell us the rope we use.”  This is communism and socialism and the likes of the far left.

sandersbernie_030917vsj_lead

13,206,428 Americans are that ignorant that they voted for this type of government and it is groups like the MSM and our education system that are to blame for it.

“Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.”

Stalin

Knowledge is power and my friends the MSM just wants to fill your head and heart with Hate and ignorance, because the Far left is losing its grip on your pocketbook.

When people spend 19 million dollars of their own money for a job that pays $150,000 a year, that should tell even the most vacuous minded moron out there, that something is not right.  Why is this fact lost on most people?  Would you spend your family fortune for a job that paid $150K a year?  The only reason you would take that gamble is those folks in DC are power brokers and once they are elected they become much more wealthy at your expense.

How is it that we are more divided than ever and we have people saying things like “melt Ice?”

Ice is here to defend this country against criminal elements that don’t belong here.

The Pravda of our time are filling their heads and hearts with hate and lies playing to their emotions which will cloud anyone’s judgment.

When you are upset with someone or something are you thinking straight?  Hell no!

Do you think this person is thinking straight... Looking for her 15 minutes she walks around topless.
Do you think this person is thinking straight… Looking for her 15 minutes she walks around topless.

The goal is to keep you upset so you don’t think, you will in fact act!

The media is playing a dangerous game and folks, I would get rid of cable if it were I.  I would stop listening to Pravda and the likes of MSNBC and CNN  they are not just Fake News they are propaganda!

Pick up a real book from the library and for god’s sake educate yourself before you end up being some statistic…! “The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” Stalin

stalin

This Evil Bastard is responsible for over 20,000,000 deaths!  He was assisted by the media!

Look, check out the facts and after you see that I am right, share this a lot!

Save your fellow man woman child from the likes of monsters like Stalin and the witting or unwitting accomplices of the media.

My guess is this blog will get me shadow banned or shut down as Facebook, Twitter and other Social media is on the side of Socialism.  Why, is anyone’s guess but we can assume that they want you stupid too?

By the way, Andrea Mitchell is worth over 5 million dollars and has no idea what the ordinary person goes through. She has no connection to you what so ever!  Her Annual Salary is $750K, so she does not need the crumbs that most of us got through the tax cuts.

If by some chance Andrea you read this, tell me where I am wrong!

How in the hell can you compare Trump to Stalin?

trump

Here is an idea, why don’t you go to the library and educate yourself on the facts!
