STAY ON TRACK

Just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone that their can only be one you. People around you will try to dictate which dream you should live out or what turn you should take when faced with a decision, but these choices is what makes you…YOU.

So take that job position out of town. Get that tattoo! Love who you want, freely. We only got one life to live so stay on track! Thanks for reading.

Have a great day!

WE NEED LEADERS

We need people-

in our social media society to stand up.

to say things that are going to make waves, but in the right direction.

that can bring together a city without violence.

that care about ALL lives.

to want to make a difference.

to be strong and touch the hearts and minds like MLK.

that are going to stand up for equality, justice, peace, and love.

to stand amongst the rubble and unit a nation like GW Bush.

WE NEED LEADERS~

That leader could be you…

 

HOLIDAY FUDGING CHEER

good-christmas-gifts-for-momHey, everyone! Sorry I haven’t been divulging in my passion for writing lately. I haven’t been feeling up to writing the past few weeks and this has hindered my blog, but now I’m going to get back in the flow of things. Thanks for bearing with me through the drought. I’ll do better in the future. Hopefully, I can increase my audience a bit while becoming a better writer. That’s my ultimate goal after all.

The holidays are among us, but doesn’t quite feel like it to me. I remember this time of year for me was cold and long. I’ve learned the 25 days to Christmas countdown goes by rather quick when you’re an adult so its not so long anymore now that I’m not counting every minute in the day while staring at neatly wrapped gifts under the tree. The cold isn’t even here anymore because its somehow replaced by “Global Warming ” temperatures of 75 degrees here in Memphis, TN. My mom speaks about what it says in the bible about the seasons and the end of the world, but I’ll save that topic for another day.

So since the feeling of Christmas, isn’t in the air, I make it myself. Everywhere I go I bring holiday cheer now. I wish everyone I encounter happy holidays. I never really took it upon myself to spread the holiday spirit because it was already out there typically. I enjoy spreading it now. I feel like the dad from that Christmas Vacation movie minus the wife, kids, and house. I have an apartment.

*SIDE NOTE* DID ANYONE CATCH MY CHRISTMAS STORY REFERENCE IN THE TITLE?

Now with that being said, my task to you all is to spread the joy and love of the holidays. Wish people Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays. Lets show a little more care about each other and lay the foundation for the start of a new year. Thanks for reading!

 

FOR THIS WE WILL DEFEND

Sorry for the delay in my post. My weekly update plans got interrupted due to lack of free time cause by adult life and having to pay bills. I’m really tired right now as we speak, but I have to post something here for sure this week. The week I get to talk about the other job.armyNot only am I a synergist, but I’m also part of the Veteran club! I’ve been in the Army National Guard for 12 years. Its been quite the stretch, but I’ve enjoyed most of it. I spent a couple of years in Iraq and in other various locations all around the US. Being a Veteran wouldn’t mean much with out all the support of you. I got a lot of random care packages and all the thank yous in the world! I don’t think I would have done it this long if it wasn’t for the support of all of you and all my brothers and sisters in arms.

So sure being away sucks and being in harms way sucks, but it all makes since when I get to shake hands of my supporters and also get free food and drinks! Thank you all again and have a wonderful Veterans Day.

NORMAL VS ME,YOU, AND US

I’ve been on this blog for a little over a week or so and I have to say, I love it. It’s great to get to connect with all you other writers out there. If you’re like me, you know that connecting with normal people (I use the term “Normal” loosely) can be daunting. Mostly because we have problems turning off our synergitic nature. Not really sure what I mean?

Prime example!

Picture talking to someone at a party or social event. They begin to rant on about their life and then you find yourself escaping out the backdoor of your thoughts, running down the alley of your mind. You make note of the tattered edges of the table cloth covering the round stained wood you sit at while the person continues to talk. Then, you gently slide your hand over the fabric. You thought the fabric was made of silk, but instead it’s just typical cloth. You remember to keep this self interaction you had in mind for later for some sort of character environment placement as you scramble back up the alley and dive through the backdoor just as the person stops talking. A part of you may have heard the conversation and you may be able to continue on without skipping a beat unless they ended it with question. Then, your screwed.

It’s just hard for us to turn off the writer gene. It’s ok though because now I’m in a place where people can relate to me (hopefully). People that are not writers just don’t understand the detail we grab from reality.

So thanks everyone. Thanks for interacting with me and making your blog so I know I’m not the only one. Thanks for stopping by. Follow me and like me please! I’ll be sure to stop by your blog and see what your synergy has put together!

WRITING SYNERGY

 

Concepts

I was looking at the leaves on a tree wave as the wind gusted by at a barbeque a few years ago, and I thought to myself “I’m going to describe my main character looking at this very image one day”. It wasn’t till later that I recently that I realized what I was doing. The fact is that  I am a synergist. In order to explain what that is, you have to understand the meaning of synergy. Don’t worry, I won’t trouble you to look it up.

Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts.

Now consider your own writing process and where you derive your ideas mainly. For example, I look around me everywhere I go to remember the slightest detail about things and moments that I can put on paper to make an idea better. Do you find yourself doing this with your everyday life as well? We look at scenery or listen to music that lingers in our minds to form ideas. In doing so, we can make all these lonely ideas come together in our very own creation on paper. It all comes back to synergy. The way we take so many different things and attributes in life and conform them into one sentence. One page. One story.

We all create synergy on paper by writing about these compiled images and memories all brought together to make an enhanced moment. So enhanced that the reader can see or sometimes feel what we write. I guess this means you should consider yourself a synergist, too. Now I’m not the only weirdo in the blog. Thanks!

YOU CAN EXPECT….THE EXPECTED..BUT DIFFERENTLY

Hey everyone. I won’t bore you with any useless information so I’ll get write down to the point. What you can expect to see on my blog are free writes that will be entertaining in many ways. You may get a laugh out of a topic I go into or you may be interested in keeping up what happens next in my short story sections. That’s right folks, I’ll be diving into my cataclysm of an imagination and sharing that with you (for free nonetheless). Aren’t you excited? I know I am. Wait. I promised myself I wouldn’t give away any information about myself here openly in this particular post….That’s why you have to check out the About Me Section at the top of the page here so you can see how cool of a person this beginner blogger truly is. Here’s what you can expect in a nutshell.

  • Short fictional/nonfictional stories every week!
  • Exciting life events and travels (not very often).
  • Important life topics like why are their Jedis when Sith Lords can do the force choke.
  • Pretty much anything to do with words will show face here at some point.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I can sway you to come by again. If you like anything you read or hate anything you read, please feel free to share that in a comment somewhere on the page. If you like to make this really personal, then we can always step out back. By step out back I mean you hit the back button as many times as it takes to get your sensitive ass off my blog!
