GOING DOWN ON LOVE

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.

HELL HOUNDS AT MY HEELS

D

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.”

IMMORTAL BELOVED

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.”

HACK TO THE FUTURE

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:

ABOVE US ONLY SKY

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.

THE LEAST OF MY BROTHERS

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.

THE INVISIBLE SCRIBE

Screaming into a void? Putting it out there but it’s trapped in here? Feeding minds but no feedback? One has to wonder when one’s domination of the universe will begin, and with a bang, or even a whimper? This Labyrinth Creators Journal ponders the age old question, if the Pope shits in the woods does it make a sound? Read the always brief, always relevant book of essays that talks about my story involving two RI folk legends coming together to make a splash, but not yet breaking water.

Watching Peter Jackson’s film of The Beatles: Get Back for three nights straight right before my Birthday has made me wistful about the Fab Four’s place in my heart and mind throughout my life, especially my all-time biggest socially-conscious hero, John Lennon. I couldn’t help but take a pause to wax poetically about the Liverpool Lads in my latest Labyrinth Project Creators Journal over at The Immortal Artist out of New Orleans. Read the always brief, always thoughtful, always entertaining blog that brought me from fool on the hill to paperback writer.

THY ROD AND THY STAFF

As you made your way to the Russian Erotic Museum in Saint Petersburg today, I hope you did your best not to let Jenny tail ya’. Many a spy would follow those that would seek a glimpse of the great Russian holy man Grigori Rasputin’s holy business, and it is indeed an oddity that is hard to keep under wraps. When my character of Tatiana, a young ad executive in Manhattan, gets ahold of the legendary relic through family ties, it changes her in ways she could not have foreseen. Mainly it’s because the old rapscallion’s ghost is still attached, and he has some mesmerizing and manipulation on his mind. Read my brief and terrifying blog of how I wove this illuminated tally whacker into a novella that I hold out hope of publishing, over at the Labyrinth Project. 4 out of 5 Urologists recommend it.

‘PUTIN ON THE RITZ

Rasputin is my favorite character in all of history, and the fall of the czarist Romanov dynasty and subsequent Bolshevik revolution my favorite time and place in all of history. There’s just something about a crude, hedonistic guy who also communicates with the Blessed Virgin, predicts world shaking events, AND performs miracle healings that can turn several dozen ladies’ heads, and not because they’re possessed. In the Labyrinth Project Creators Journal we discuss his spirit hovering over a novella I have written and how he figured into my wayward thoughts. Enjoy the brief, fun Journal that thousands have read and spit out their coffee over!
