  1. It's utterly delusional! And that's all I have to say.
  2. Sorry, but I find this video extremely troubling. Martial Law? Shadow government? Special Forces secretly stealing congressional laptops during the Capitol Building riot? FCC warnings to media outlets? Troops in place to arrest people? Buy food and ammo for 30 days? It's completely unverifiable conspiracy nonsense. I couldn't write a story this far fetched! We really need to be better than this. I also find it very disappointing that this site is actually entertaining this type of over-the top fearmongering. Maybe it's time for me to move on.
  3. In my personal conduct, I always avoid using bad language. Most other Christians I know embrace the same goal. The rest of the world, however, usually doesn't share this sentiment. This makes me laugh, too, but for a different reason. In reality, and in my experiences, most of the world couldn't care less about using the "green" rule when they talk. Again, this is something that makes me chuckle. Maybe in our Christian echo chambers, and in some secular circles this rings true, but the world is unfortunately nose-blind to this. Back in m
  4. I'd still rather purchase licenses from a reputable stock photo site. Any question of use is settled, and all risk is on the stock photo company. I only purchase licenses for my book covers because I feel that it's critical to have a clearly defined license.
  5. Here in the US it depends on what state you live in. Some states are more strict than others. However, I fear this might end when our new president takes office. Speculation is that he'll enact a federal mandated lockdown for all states. I hope this isn't true, because I think it should be up to each state to decide what's best for their situation. Also, vaccinations are ramping up. I hope that by the end of March, enough people will be vaccinated to start pulling back on current restrictions.
  6. Only to the extent where it affects, or is part of the story. There are authors who love to flesh out detailed histories of their main characters. If it helps them to write their story, fine. But I personally consider it overkill, and often a distraction to the story I'm trying to tell.
  7. Happy New Year! Happy to be finally done with 2020...
  8. My post-apocalyptic novel centers around a flu pandemic. Not surprised that sales didn't take off this year.
  9. Hum, been through this too many times, so I'm about to apply what I've learned: My 2021 goal is to write one entirely new sentence in my WIP. Not a rewrite, or an edit - entirely new material. I'm sure to crush that goal...
  10. I clearly remember a lot of ridiculous dire predictions coming from noted Christian leaders at the time. Most of it had to do with power shutting off, phones failing, and banks closing for weeks while losing everyone's money at the stroke of midnight. Let's just say there was plenty of egg on faces to go around at 12:01am on 1/1/2000. A whole lot of nothing actually happened. I also worked at a large computer company at the time, and knew better.
  11. I wouldn't use anything unless you're sure it's in public domain. A vast majority of images you find are copyrighted. I'd suggest you open an account with a stock photo site (like Shutterstock). It will cost you to use those images, but that way everything is legal, and the photo content providers are fairly compensated for their work. There are also a number of royalty-free photo sites. You can try them, but I've never had much luck finding just the right image for what I needed. Maybe someone here has some good suggestions?
  12. Not a concert, but a song from my high school days. Overplayed for decades in malls and stores across the country, but heaven help me, because I love this song in all it's cheesy glory!
  13. When it comes to writing, these are great rules to keep in mind.
