Friday Musings 8/18/2017

This rainy NY Friday marks about the half way point of August. Almost September. Then it's a hop, skip and a jump into October. The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead are back, pumpkins, caramel apples, ghouls and ghosts. Halloween. The holiday of horror. 

Is Saw coming back? I've heard rumors that may be true by now. Maybe it's gone the way of Tales From the Crypt. So sad that situation with TNT and HBO. I was looking forward for the revamp. Maybe someday. 

To readers and any fans if the blog (I hope there are at least a few at this point): this Friday is also a Friday to be thankful that you are alive and able to read a book and watch a movie. There are a lot of crazy events happening in the world. Now more than ever you have to keep a straight head and stay safe. 

Of course there are many great authors and hopefully myself, who you can look to for a release from life and its many pressures, if you need that escape. If you want to beta read, let me know. 

I try to stay clear of politics and such. If I want to make a point, I'll write something in one of my stories. Of course, it won't be from the only point of view, because life isn't just one point of view. There are many characters. But myself, and other writers (I'm not alone in this belief), feel you can shoot yourself in the foot when it comes to all the trending tweets and such. Some haven't barely made a name for themselves and they're alienating a portion of their fan base. 

To writers and creators: I'm not saying don't speak your mind, far from it. We're writers. Talk. Discuss. Just remember. These are politicians and other powers at work trying to mold what you think. Get news from everywhere, put pieces together. And above all. Write some fiction. News can waste a lot of precious time. 

Until next post.
