UPDATE: “The Geek Show” Indiegogo Campaign Has Been EXTENDED!

I definitely wasn’t expecting to write for a third consecutive day, but this latest change in the Indiegogo campaign for “The Geek Show” is, for sure, one that needs to be shared. So contrary to what I had said in yesterday’s post, as of today, the length of the campaign has been extended for about three more weeks. We are a little over halfway to our goal, and so this was a necessary decision to make, to allow ourselves more time to really aim to reach our it.

Crowdfunding is no cakewalk, for it takes a village to make it succeed. If you are able to, we’d really appreciate it if you could contribute to it. Otherwise, sharing the link with others will be equally as helpful. All the details can be found here.

Special Sunday Post: Last Days of “The Geek Show” Indiegogo Campaign

Hey everyone!

I come to you for a second time this weekend with an announcement. You might remember how last month, I had mentioned the launch of an Indiegogo campaign for a theatre production I’m doing called “The Geek Show.” Well, at this time, we are down to the last days of our campaign, and we are a little more than halfway to our goal.

Special Friday Post: “The Geek Show” Indiegogo Campaign is LIVE!

Hey everyone!

I’m writing to you a day ahead of my weekly blog post to announce something quite exciting. At the end of last year, I had mentioned how one of my goals for the year is to get involved in more creative collaborations, and how I had gotten a jump start on it months in advance by getting involved in a theatre production. Well, I’m happy to say that the Indiegogo campaign for that project is now live for people to contribute.

Openness to Collaborations in 2017

With the year winding down to a close now, I look ahead at the coming year in terms of how I go forward as a writer. With the fact that I released An Absolute Mind so late in the year, I’ve made it very clear that I will be promoting it as much as possible throughout the coming year; especially with the kind of administration the United States is about to obtain. I also know that work will be going into my third novel, which, as of last month, I’m proud to say I’ve started jotting down notes for.

However, what else is there to do as a writer? While I also plan to continue my weekly blog posts here, as well as my writing contributions on other sites, I want to do more. I look to a listicle I had put together back in January about three things I want to do as an author, and there’s one thing in particular that I really want to go after. This coming year, I would very much like to take part in more collaborations. Continue reading “Openness to Collaborations in 2017”

Thoughts About Storytelling for the Stage

Storytelling can come in a wide variety of forms. Apart from the common mechanism of telling stories through written words, I’ve taken the time to step outside that realm and really take a look at how narratives are done in other mediums; including movies, television, and even in journalism. However, one that I haven’t touched upon yet- that I find surprising to not have tackled earlier- is how storytelling can go about when performed on a stage for a live audience; complete with costumes, makeup, lighting, blocking, acting, and in the cases of musicals and operas, songs and choreography. Yes. Today, it’s all about storytelling in plays and musical theatre.

In Loving Memory

It is with a heavy heart that I write this week’s blog post, not only to inform, but also to remember.  I didn’t think I would find myself doing this less than a year after A Moment’s Worth came out, and yet I must deal with the reality of this.

Cheryl Morris, who served as the editor for both A Moment’s Worth and “The Shadows,” passed away last Friday.  Despite the health issues she had been dealing with since January, her death has been incredibly unexpected for everyone who had known her and loved her. Continue reading “In Loving Memory”
