Daylight Saving’s Time Can Kiss My A**.

[WARNING]: A.P. is in a little bit of a mood, as would anyone who spent the last six months getting their circadian rhythm used to one thing only to have some asswipe on the news tell you that it’s time to change your clock, so there may be some foul language and unpleasantness.

I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to put Daylight’s Savings into action, and frankly I’m too drained from lack of restful sleep to find out who the rat bastard was, but be rest assured: if I meet you in the afterlife, I am going to shove a clock so far up your butt that you’ll taste time instead of the rainbow when you eat Skittles. It’s 2019 — we have electric cars, Artificial Intelligence, and phones with calculators that all of my teachers swore I’d never have on me. Surely, we can take ten minutes, unbury our heads from our asses, and agree that it should be the same time no matter what month of the year it is, right?

I’m With You (ADHD Awareness Month)

October begins ADHD awareness month and I support the cause because of how much ignorance still exists surrounding the affliction. When it comes to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), I’ve seen every perspective and attitude pointed at the disorder, and they all aren’t pleasant. I, myself, was diagnosed about a year and a half ago and my life has completely changed now that I have a management protocol — even with a management protocol in place, I will struggle with it until the day I die. 

To kick off ADHD Awareness Month, I wanted to share a message with others who deal with ADHD, especially those who are dealing with it untreated: I’m with you, I understand.

Frequently Asked Question: What Writing Reference Books Do you Keep Handy?

There is a strong part of me that hopes that one of you out there will see my blogs or read my books and get bitten by the writing bug. If not the writing bug, then something creative. The world needs creative people, we need satire and criticism, we need something abstract to help us understand the world around us and process the situation at hand.

As a writer, I love answering questions about writing — let’s be honest: I love talking about writing, it’s addicting, and I couldn’t care less if there is a cure. Among social media channels, there is a popular question that is asked of writers and I wanted to share my answers with you.

The question: What writing reference books do I keep handy? In no particular order…

Nerdtheories: The Advanced Theory of the T-1000 & Practical Earth Applications

Picture it: 1992. Terminator 2: Judgement Day had bee in theaters and is on the fast track to becoming one of the biggest motion picture event of the millennium. Little A.P. Miller, a science fiction aficionado in his own right, takes to the James Cameron franchise like a meth addiction on a reality TV star.

I think we can all agree that one of the coolest visual devices used on the film “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” was the liquid metal protagonist, the T-1000. The shape-shifting killing machine was malleable, changing its shape and appearance at will, while also being able to distort its limbs into lethal shapes intended on stabbing or dismembering the target at hand. I know I was fascinated by the prospect.
