What I Learned

It’s been while since my last update. Admittedly, I’ve gotten out of practice over the summer. You know how it goes, long days and warm weather combine for relaxed atmosphere. You start to drop your guard. A vacation here, a trip to the river or the lake there, and before you know it your daily…

Marvel’s Vanishing Point

What is Marvel doing? They seemed so set on a direction a few years ago. Of the big two, they were the one with its head on its shoulders. Marvel knew what it was and what it wanted to be. But now Marvel is lost, struggling with fan reactions and industry feedback that doesn’t appear…

Final Draft

As I currently write this post, I’m a scene away from my final revision, edit, and rewrite of my first Novel Manuscript. Sure I’d finished drafts before, but this is no ordinary draft. This is a final copy, a polished script as those in the business would say. This is the first time I can…

The Changing Landscape for Blockbusters

Last summer was a relative disappointment as far as box office results are concerned. There were several flops and under performers. So far, this blockbuster season is looking very similar to last. However Wonder Woman will not be counted among those disappointments, that’s assured. The release of Wonder Woman hasn’t had the marketing build up…

Why Wonder Woman Is Great!

Normally, during a movie review, I look for basically three things: how was the story (it all revolves around the story), did it do it’s job (comedy create laughter, etc.), and was it as advertised (movie matches the trailers). But this is not a review. This is an emotional outburst of nerd joy at the artistic…

Xmen ResurrXion: What’s Missing?

Yesterday I featured a post regarding my excitement for the new direction Marvel is taking with its Xmen comicbook franchise. Today, let’s explore some of the things that the Xmen titles could still improve upon in this new ResurrXion era. Sure, I love what I’m seeing and reading so far (keep in mind that all…

Xmen ResurrXion: The New Status Quo

So…Inhumans vs. Xmen is behind us. We’re more than a month deep into ResurrXion, and Marvel is pivoting towards a DC Rebirth style rebranding. As a huge Xmen fan, how am I feeling about the new titles so far? Well…finally I believe Marvel’s on the right track with the Xmen. For the first time in…

Possible Directions of the 5 Game of Thrones Proposed Spinoffs

As a huge Game of Thrones fan, I’ve had a lot to ponder this past week or so. Recently, it was announced that HBO has four possible Game of Thrones spin-off pilot scripts. George R.R. Martin himself confirmed five scripts. Now, this doesn’t mean HBO will order five new GoT based series, but it does…

Tarkin Book Review

The title of this post may be a little deceiving. I don’t know if this would quantify as a review as much as an expression of how I felt about the novel. Let’s not go into too much detail about prose, writing style, and the technicalities. I’m sure you’ll find far more qualified folks out there…

There’s a Saying About Writers 

There’s a saying that goes a little something like this. To be a writer, you have to be writing. This may be true. But I’ve found that you are a writer if you stop writing but can’t replace the urge to shape words into stories. It’s funny how much one can miss crafting a new…

This One Feels Real! 

This one feels real guys. In the last update I spoke of finishing my second novel manuscript. I’ve had about a month to soak it all in and I have to say the feeling of accomplishment is much different this time around.  With the completion of the first manuscript, it was a long overdue marathon…

On to the next one! 

It’s been a while since the last writing update. Don’t worry, I’m still writing. I finished the first draft of the novel I started for NaNoWriMo, the project I’ve referred to for the past several months. I’ve dubbed it Project HAM & Abel. it’s a working title of course. Don’t worry I’m sure I’ll be…
