How to Become the Best Epic Fantasy Writer

Hello, dear reader. In my last post, I wrote a fantasy blurb by breaking down the individual components of best-selling blurbs in the genre, then used those pieces to create my own. The result was very well received. I posted my blurb to a group that specialized in blurb feedback, and other than a few minor edits, most said it was well-written. One person even said they write blurbs for a living, and mine was very good.

That gave me the confidence to take that analytical approach to the next level. Continue reading “How to Become the Best Epic Fantasy Writer”

An Exercise in Writing a YA Fantasy Book Blurb

Whenever I’m getting ready to release a new book, I like to perform a “blurb analysis” of several books in the same genre in order to craft my own blurb that will appeal to the same group of people.

The Marvel Formula Needs to Stay, Here’s Why…

Earlier this year, Captain Marvel came out. I saw several reviews for it and, discounting the trolls who universally claim to hate the movie, the response I’ve seen has been mixed to positive.

Most, in all fairness, are positive reviews (I also enjoyed it, though my review is not the content of this post), but I’ve seen a number of people who didn’t like it, or thought it was “just okay”. This is fine, and I’m not going to argue with anyone on their meh reaction to this film. Continue reading “The Marvel Formula Needs to Stay, Here’s Why…”

Ultimate Guide to DC Universe Streaming Platform in 2019

Back in April of 2017, DC Comics announced that they would be releasing a new streaming service exclusively for DC Comics use, and not including other intellectual properties owned by Warner Brothers. It wasn’t until much later that we learned it wasn’t just a streaming service of DC video content, or just a competitor to Marvel Unlimited which catered exclusively to comic book readers. No, DC Universe would do both. Continue reading “Ultimate Guide to DC Universe Streaming Platform in 2019”

Popular Film, Criticism, and the Oscars

On August 8th, 2018, the organization behind the Academy Awards announced that they were going to issue a new “Best Popular Film” category. Needless to say, an announcement like this stirred a lot of controversy. When I first heard about it, I initially agreed with many of the naysayers. I was worried that this was a pity party for popular film, that it was patronizing, and would likely keep films like Black Panther from having a shot at Best Picture (which it 100% deserves, by the way). Many theorize, and I agree, that the success of Black Panther may have contributed to the new category. Perhaps the Academy didn’t think it could include the superhero film in their Best Picture lineup, but also wanted to avoid another #OscarsSoWhite backlash. Good luck with that.

All Timelines Gets an Upgrade

Hey guys!

I am always on the lookout for new ways to improve All Timelines, both from a content and technical standpoint. Well, today I have one exciting technical feature to announce. For a while, I’ve been dissatisfied with the plugin I was using to display my timelines, particularly the timelines you’ll see on the app, what I call the 2.0 timelines. For these timelines, I actually had two versions, one the table you’re familiar with, as well as an archive page that was paginated and also displayed images and summaries, but was far less compact than the main version.

Health, Diet, and Writing

I have a personal experience I’d like to share. For the past two years I’ve been studying the art of writing and self-publishing, and I’ve been doing my best to establish writing habits. But I struggled a lot to maintain the routines I set up. Sometimes I would just not have the energy, or I’d experience what I thought was burnout. Sometimes I’d go for whole weeks before being able to re-apply myself to my established schedule. This frustrated the heck out of me, as I really wanted to be more productive, but found it incredibly difficult. How could I finish all the books I wanted to write if I couldn’t even get myself out of bed early enough to write? I had all these plans, but couldn’t find ways to stick to them. Needless to say, I was frustrated.  I thought maybe I was just inherently lazy. Continue reading “Health, Diet, and Writing”

Writing Lessons from Skyrim: Worldbuilding


Skyrim is a video game that came out in 2011, yet 7 years later it still holds up as one of the best fantasy video games of all time. It helps that the game is absolutely massive, and you could put literally thousands of hours into it. And many have. I myself have probably put about 300 hours into this game, which may sound like a lot, but compared to some gamers, I haven’t even scratched the surface. And there are still many quests and other story elements that I have yet to touch. Continue reading “Writing Lessons from Skyrim: Worldbuilding”
