Falling outside the Loop
Want to know a little about me (?), well let me explain that I am an old guy, older than the mountains and more ancient than the waters and streams that pay homage at their foot. Which should explain that I ain’t gonna tell ya how old I am.
Still, I will say is that I was first bitten with the bug of storytelling after watching the inspiring tv series Firefly. And so, I was stunned to find that it was a show no longer viewable on current television at the time. I only became aware of its perfection after the fact. Anyway….. this led me to want to continue its adventures.
Now understand, that although I like to create new story works (for many & alternate movie and tv shows) I am no writer, and I don’t consider myself as such. But I do like to create, and I do so with the hope of impunity. I do know that my writing is riddled with flaws and errors; I make no beef about that, still I enjoy creating new ideas and new concepts for the characters that entertain us. My idea is that our love of adventure an learning helps maintain our spirit and launches us into a dimension of new expressive thought.
Anyway, so that’s a bit about me. By my coming here and posting what is in my imagination I hope to make friends and create little “what if” ideas in people’s brains. I am inspired by many things, a beautiful sunrise or sunset, the human condition, and my love, my wife and my cohort. My thanks to you for visiting my profile, Z.
Fresh Update 2/21/14
Hello profile readers (I read writer profiles myself), just putting up an extended update to the one posted above. It has been mentioned several times, through reviews and the like, that my stories are different, unusual or unconventional. That is done purposely, and, although I know that not all folk will find my story arcs interesting or worth a read, still, there is a driving force in me that screams when a story work wants to be told……..Sometimes I can ignore this impulse….and then other times, I cannot. They hound me to the point where I must sit down and type them out.
Now, that may sound as if I don’t like creating works of fiction, not true, I really enjoy it, however, it does chew up a bit of time and the lawn, or maintenance around the house suffers. Still, like I’ve said, the story wants to get out, convincing me that it should be told. Also, it works as an outlet for me at times.
Anyhoo...I always keep a running list of ideas and new scenarios jotted down in a notebook, or just in my head. I always try to create works (although odd), that have a ring of truth about them, or a bit of canon. I know that sounds strange being that most of my stories are about zombies, or space adventures, magical artifacts or just science-fiction in general, still these are my interest and what I like to envision. Listed below are some ideas that may show up in future posts……
Things on my list that are currently in line to be posted on this site are, a second chapter to my Game of Thrones story work “A King Disarmed” and a new story work “Conan & the Dark Winged Beast”. There are others too on the list (and of course current updates to existing stories), but these are the two that are really pushing on me right now. My better half and I are really getting into GoT, and the original stories and manuscripts of Robert E. Howard’s Conan series have not been presented with justice in the movies or any other media besides the old paperback novels, JMO.
Anyway….. I’m looking to post more stories during the year, and continue those posted now (as time allows) and I want to thank all of the readers that submit reviews and critiques, they are very helpful. Now a quote, or near quote……Can you tell me where it’s from?
“If landing on the moon wasn’t dramatic enough for them, then why shouldn’t landing on it be?”
I really enjoy bold statements as such; there is so much heart & emotion in them. Z
Things that inspire me: Firefly, The Walking Dead, Riddick, The Hunger Games, FaceOff, Frank Frazetta, Boris & Julie, Mark S. & Michael H…..just my short list.
