Got to Hate that Plot of Convenience
From my review of the Puppy Love Film. Writers, please, just don’t do this:
Save yourself a jaunt down into boredom, and don’t turn this film on.

In perhaps the most unrealistic plot line I’ve heard of in 2012, a woman adopts a dog who already belongs to another. That’s right. That’s what a writer like myself calls “a plot of convenience.” What do I mean by this? If you want to get from point A to B in your script or novel, sometimes you force the plot.

Happy Birthday The Age of Merrik
Another year, another birthday (or anniversary) for The Age of Merrik. September 7th or Novem 7th in The Age of Merrik timeline terms is also the birthday of Merrik of Tyera. I look forward to writing more in the series and the prequel that serves as background for the Sword Masters. The sequel should be a challenge to weave everyone together, especially what I have planned for Sethane (Kingdom of Malik). Perhaps a great question is, if you are already Malik’s General, what is to stop you from taking his head and becoming the new king?
Miriam and John have always been a fan favorite. Areya and Miriam will be in this one, plus the new addition, Miriam and John’s child.
