By now, it’s universally agreed that 2020 was a leaking bag of crap. It would be tacky to go on a rant about it now. What I will do is declare that 2021 will not suck by any such metric. This year I am dedicated to getting my much more slender ass to the beaches of North Carolina. I’m going to get sunburnt, I am going to get water in my ears, and I am going to fall in love with the sound of the water hitting the sand again.
As a storyteller, I am all about setting a mood, good or bad. One of the easiest ways to pull at the heartstrings during a yarn is to use sounds or music. Being that I am so dedicated to such an emotional summer, I found it only fitting to put together a playlist I can listen to on the beach, while I’m just hanging out, or sitting pensively in my writing room, cranking out my latest opus.

I’m going to be honest: I’m not always the supreme creativity machine I’d have you believe I am. Sometimes I am scratching my head for story ideas and blog topics.

So …I guess Richard Gere wouldn’t be stopping to talk to Julia Roberts, but someone who says people say she looks like Julia Roberts (when we all know damn well no one said it but her grandma, and Grandma thinks Julia Roberts is the girl who works at the bank).
Today, I was cruising through a blog idea generator, and nothing struck. What did tickle me pink was some of the concepts, which gave me an idea in and of itself. This week, I’m going to take some of those blog topics and add my own wise-ass commentary to it. In the topic field, I typed “Writing” and got some really interesting responses.

In last week’s blog, I talked about the time I heard a radio-signal get dropped like a bad habit because the host of a radio show and a caller were talking about a time traveler. Since that night, I had been obsessed with trying to find everything about the guy that I could. For this week’s blog, I wanted to share with you some of the more interesting things I’d found out about John Titor (pronounced: Tee-tor), and some of the concepts that sparked the idea for “A Law of Constants.”
