Pushing Past Writer’s Block

Pushing Past Writer’s Block

I’ve been blocked for years as a writer. Feeling like I have nothing worth saying. I resolved in 2019 to write, to move beyond this blocked feeling, to write no matter what. I picked up creative writing books. I read them. I am not sure I totally agree with some the new age thinking in them. But I am writing again, 30+ journal pages and a few scattered blog posts in just 16 days is a win in my book.

I’m still finding my voice. Not sure what to write about most days, but I pour my heart and mind out on the journal pages. Going to force myself to do things to spark the writing bug. I may actually have to go outside again shudder. A friend expressed how they missed writing on LiveJournal. I couldn’t agree more. Blogging is a dead art, people opt for the short form social media of Facebook and Twitter. I want to change that for myself. Honestly, if I didn’t use Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch with friends I would abandon the platforms entirely. I’d rather write here.

A question, if you’re reading this, I’d love to know what you would like to see on this page?

I don’t have much going on in my life, but I want to resurrect this site and try to keep it up. And I’d like it to have more content than just fun stuff and links.

So if there is something you want me to talk about, let me know.

I’m also resuming my development of sites for others. If you need or want a site for yourself I’d be happy to do it. My rates are reasonable and really just looking to build up my portfolio. My focus is mostly WordPress development.

To fill time I’ve been taking courses to bolster my skills and fill in gaps in my knowledge. Truthfully I’m finding that I already know most of the stuff. I just need to put it to use.

If you’re interested interested in learning HTML5 or CSS3 I highly recommend this book on Amazon. HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites. It’s a fantastic book that covers the topics with great writing and magazine-like layouts. A great refresher on the skills or a primer for learning something new. Full disclosure, if you use the link above I get a small percentage of the purchase.

I had a great time at the Long Beach Comic and & Horror Con this weekend. I always enjoy seeing the core group of artists we work with. I say work, because although we have a good time it is work we are doing promoting great book like Tales of Blood and Fire, Comic Book Junkie, and Zombie Tramp. I highly recommend you check them all out. They’re fantastic.

See you next week and the Los Angeles Comikaze Expo. I can’t wait!

Thank you, Sunny!

Thank you, Sunny!

I couldn't agree more!

Stolen from Sunny. She’s awesome!

Big Wow ComicFest, San Jose

Big Wow ComicFest, San Jose

I had a great time seeing friends at Big Wow ComicFest last weekend. San Jose is a beautiful town. I could actually see myself living there. There were not a lot of costumed folks at this show and it was more comic driven than other shows I’ve been at in the past, which is good for comic creators.

I did meet Richard Kiel, which was fun since I’m a huge fan of the James Bond films. Mr. Kiel, whom you may remember as Jaws, the villain turned good guy with the metal teeth, was great. Just really intimidating at first, he’s a giant of a man. What a treat to meet him.

Oh, I did get a photo of female Loki.

Also, check out the sites of my friends Emonic and Allan Angel. There’s some really good stuff. I was disappointed we didn’t have time to make it to Emo’s gallery show in San Jose.

Next up, Phoenix!
