If I feel that the calendar year of 2017 is moving at the speed of light, then you can only imagine how stunned I am that three days ago marked one year since I released my second novel, An Absolute Mind. It was conceived four years prior, and spent two and a half years in the making before being released out to the world, at the beginning of a turning point in history for the United States. Just to jog your memory as to what this novel is about, here is the synopsis: Continue reading
It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since the release of my second novel, An Absolute Mind. It’s been on quite a journey since then, especially during this time of history we are in for the United States.
I will give a more in-depth reflection on it this Saturday. In the mean time, if you haven’t already, please go buy the book and if you’ve read it already, please leave a review somewhere. Also, as a reminder, tonight I’m doing a live reading of the first few chapters from the book on Instagram Live, so you have an account on there, then please tune in at 8:30PM PST.
I look forward to seeing some of you then.
As briefly noted in my previous blog post, I was in the Pacific Northwest last weekend; specifically Seattle, Washington. While the main purpose was to visit a friend, it also made for the ultimate opportunity to explore a place I’ve never been to before. Seattle is a city that has been on my bucket list for quite some time, and I wanted to use up as many moments during my trip to get to know the place. Continue reading
This week’s post is coming to you with the intent to lead you elsewhere, for as you are reading this, I am out exploring the Pacific Northwest for my first time. As a result, it seemed well timed for another opportunity for Recommended Analyzing, as I give way to an analysis piece regarding the latest “Star Wars Rebels” episode; where a mysterious yet highly anticipated creature is finally introduced into this galaxy far far away.

I haven’t spoken too much about the progress for my third novel. It’s been almost a year since work began on it and the writing process began over four months ago. But things haven’t been moving as swiftly along as they could be, and as of this month, I think I understand the reason why. Continue reading
A lot of craziness has been going throughout this year, but it feels like this month in particular has really been chalked full of full-on craziness. Part of me wishes that I had taken a hiatus from blogging this month. But then when something like the #metoo movement starts up, I then realize it’s crucial for me as a writer to shed some light on the topic. Continue reading
“Hamilton” fans will recognize this line from the final song of the musical: “Who lives, who dies, who tells your story?” It’s repeated several times throughout the song, to emphasize on a very strong point: How do you want your legacy to look like? How do you want to be remembered, if at all? What contribution do you want to leave in this world when you are long gone? Continue reading
So this is an atypical blog post from what I would normally write on a Saturday, but due to another week that kept me occupied more so than usual, I didn’t have too many moments to contemplate a topic for the week. That’s why I figured that today would be wise to do the following: Continue reading
In the midst of “Stories High” coming to an end, along with a number of time-consuming moments throughout the past week, figuring out a topic for this week’s post proved to be a challenge. In turn, it wound up being a blessing in disguise, for it gives me an excuse to provide another Recommended Analyzing piece.
In a past blog post, I had recommended listening to an episode from the Bruce Lee Podcast; a podcast co-hosted by Shannon Lee (Bruce’s daughter) and Sharon Lee (no relation) on his life and philosophy. Well today, I would like to recommend listening to another episode from the podcast; the episode being the one released this week: Episode #64 A Population of Misfits. Continue reading
