From my Sketchbook #Art #Animation #Anime #Doodling

So to be honest, writing isn’t the only thing I do. Aside from writing stories, I’m also a guitar player, IT/IS whiz (professionally speaking), father of three, trivia jockey, amateur historian, and artist.

(You should see my resume!)

I tell a lot of writers not to work on their stories when they’re stressed out or agitated. Usually the result isn’t all that great. So with that in mind, I wanted to showcase what I do when I’m too stressed out or agitated to write in the hopes of giving people some inspiration for finding their own coping mechanisms.

The first piece, featured above, is a comparison from the first piece I did that I was never really happy with and the remake below which I did with higher quality markers… and when I say higher quality, I mean the difference between $20 per pack to $90 per pack (and that was on clearance!!!)

Heh, we all know this one! Now let’s see if everyone can name the characters!

Expect more images to follow!!



Readers,

Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc? Please feel free to post a comment or email me.

I’ll use those comments to select my next blog post.

I have been writing for several years, have 4 published works, experience with publishing and independent work, so I can hopefully be of assistance.

Please note, I only do one of these a day and will do my best to respond to everyone, but it may take some time.

Also, feel free to check out my works of Fantasy and Historical Fiction, Available on Amazon and where ever books are sold. See the link below:

Note:
If you have read my books, PLEASE log into Amazon and post a review. I really love to hear everyone’s thoughts and constructive criticisms. Reviews help get my book attention and word of mouth is everything in this business!

Thanks friends!

Catch you on the flip side!

This one is of a familiar Imperial character from the Lost Stars series, Ciena Rae.

Off My Writing Playlist #Music #Metal #Writing

No Junjou Na Kanjou… let me come right out now and say this… I don’t speak Japanese. I never have. I tried to… but foreign languages are not my strong suit. I successfully learned Latin, and still botch it up on a regular basis when trying to speak it.

Then what are you doing listening to this?

Do you have to understand everything in order to appreciate it? Consider… how many songs out there do you listen to that have Na na, la la, doot doos, scat, chanting in languages you don’t know, or (God help you) yodeling? Several popular songs out there these days have these things. You don’t understand what they’re saying, but you don’t think twice about it.

I look at this like listening to something without lyrics. The vocals, to me, are simply another musical instrument playing.

Also, I’ve tried listening to the only translated versions I’ve heard:

 

Some lyrics just don’t work when translated. This is one of those songs. The English versions are inferior in every way.

When to listen: Um… I don’t really know… right as the hero rescues his/her love? Really I listen to it all the time regardless, but that’s usually when I find myself going directly for it.
