When you need to get the words on the page that somehow add up to about 300 pages, there’s nothing for it but to sit yo’ ass down. In this Labyrinth Journal I wrap up our journey into the writing of my first novel, having told you not nearly enough to get your own done. Why, because I’m not a teacher, I’m a scribe. But I can hope that all 4200 of my readers now have a novel in them, and some writers will buy all of them, probably Kevin Lewis.



Organize your scenes into your three acts for some sort of outline. That’s what this month’s Labyrinth Creators Journal is about as well as PAST and PRESENT timelines balancing while the past unloads my Fantasy/ Horror thread. It’s enough to drive anyone to the sauce. Read the brief blog that well over four thousand readers say is a home away from home.



Continuing the dissection of my first experience writing a novel and how to come up with your own list of scenes, my formatting leads me into a rant of what you are sure to get when you pay for and read my work. Perhaps every kind of plot has already been done, but it is each of our uniqueness that makes the writing our own. It’s about what makes me, me. Join 4000 other dedicated readers in exploring the Labyrinth Project Creators Journal way down yonder in New Orleans at The Immortal Artist. It’s the always brief, always fun blog that the British call, “Gwendolyn.”


I begin to fulfill my promise of a step-by-step, penetrating look at how I managed to write my first novel, having no clue whatsoever what I was doing. Watch me flail my way into the process in the November installment of the Labyrinth Project Creators Journal over at the Immortal Artist website. 4000 other readers have called it “Shirley.”


Men have often confided to me over the years that they are frustrated and really through with women, which thankfully never lasts. But some can go through years carrying this attitude. I wondered if I could pull off a story, titled “Playthings” that would make them feel better while going through this harsh period in their lives. A guy who has it all meets his match on a jaunt through the woods of Ireland. In my Labyrinth Creators Journal for September, I take you through my thought process in trying to capture this fleeting phenomenon. Read the always brief, always eye-opening blog that 4000 others like to call Fergus.



Do any of my writer friends worry, as I do, that something you write may be misconstrued to represent your real beliefs or attitudes and may therefore become suspect in today’s “cancel culture” atmosphere? I know I’m a very nice guy, but I write stories where the good guy may not necessarily always win, just as it happens in real life. I’m hoping that Editors out there “get me” and don’t consider killing the messenger in this Labyrinth Project Creators Journal for July. Read the always brief, always transparent journal that some Vegas chorus dancers have said “gives them tingles.”

In May we caught our collective breath and took the time to celebrate The Labyrinth Creators Journal’s two-year anniversary as a living, breathing part of the Immortal Artist website of New Orleans, Louisiana. But as one has many ups that enrich our lives, we also experience several lows that require us to take stock, and with writers that can often come with feelings that this pursuit may be hopeless. Read the thoughtful, always brief blog that nearly 4000 dedicated readers have discovered and called “lit-erlicious.”


Continuing my guide to scouting out “The Eternal,” we come to a very interesting group of futurists that I belong to; “Singularity University.” Here I get to rub elbows with the greatest minds and entrepreneurs working on the silly notion of solving all the world’s ills, in online chatrooms full of brilliance and a lot of shyness. I also delve into Media overload and how I may be sick of your shit, hahaha. Read the always brief, always surprising blog that five out of five Physicists call “Schwarzeneggerian.” Links to essay and group below:


Imagine all the people sharing all the world. In my Labyrinth Creators Journal to close out February, I get into the ways I cultivate my need to engage The Eternal in my everyday existence. Something that gives us a direct and personal attachment to the realities of the past is our own Genealogy, the hunt for which does not have to be an expensive proposition. I also talk about a group that is near and dear to me battling to eliminate religious dogma from our public policies. Get stimulated tonight by this always brief always electric bugaloo heading toward 4000 readers.


Jesus’ teachings must have been some kind of wake-up call as he was imparting them, and certainly rich and poor witnesses alike gave weight to his oratory and went forth to emulate him. One such young man, in my Science Fiction story “Lepers of Golgotha” finds himself therefore involved in a phenomenon unique in all of history. In my latest Labyrinth Creators Journal, I discuss my lifelong obsession with Mankind’s creation, Religion, and my decades as an eager Catholic acolyte. Read the always short, always revelatory Writer’s Journal that 3K/4K unique readers can’t give up for Lent.
