The Planet Star - Unfolding Prophecy

THEMATIC QUESTION(S)



If events are permitted to occur naturally, would prophecies become realities? Can a prophecy be changed by manipulating events? Perhaps prophetic revelations come to fruition when a sequence of events is manipulated, and that prophecy is, in fact, contingent upon those alterations.



SUMMARY



A young widow leaves her home planet, heading out into the galaxy to a planet that will help her to reestablish her life as well as that of her young… Continue

eve of Jewish New Year

I am trying to feel “Happy New Year” when so much hate is creeping across the land. After all, I know so many good people. Even my workshop members who I drive batty.



I got another call begging me to write or call my senator about health care. Done that 2 or 3 times already. I guess that I will take a page from my elders’ notebook and do it again--even if I don’t think they are listening. On Facebook, I pasted a phrase from Sh’ma which came, the essayist says, from Kotzker Rebbe:… Continue

Banjo Strings - Ch. 1

(Note: this Sci Fi/Horror/Neo-Southern Gothic Fable is explicit and for mature audiences only...)





Chapter 1





Augustus Wainwright was having an old familiar dream, of when he was thirteen and caught the dark chocolate upstairs maid smoking in his mother's bathroom, her private sanctuary. He'd fancied that gal all summer, and now he had her, close enough to touch. His face stretched into a goofy grin, he ordered the maid to his room near the back of the mansion.… Continue

Sigh

Sigh--I went all "Black" on my writing workshop tonight.



One tires of having to explain the substructure of a story. On the other hand, it is instructive to see much how they miss. I have more or less decided that I will explain, but I am not going to denature Black culture.



In science fiction, you don't stop and explain how "ray guns" work, and I am not going to stop and explain that Texas Southern is a Black school and that maybe a character described as a student there… Continue

Reverse Phonics started out as a good idea but......

I realized how hard it would be for some people to pronounce ----plus it really doesnt fit with my story direction so i just might scratch that idea all together

Goals

My blog is mainly over at LiveJournal, but perhaps I should double post here:


Did I finish a story for workshop? Yes, I made my goal. A bit late. And it means that I didn't log on to "work" work tonight. But it was emailed out to members. Now I guess that I have to do real work. And think of another story.

She strolls in a garden at sunset, a walking, vibrating shadow. Her long robe made no sound, did not catch on the rose thorns she passed. Her bare feet rested on unbent blades of grass as she stopped before a perfect blossom, one of many on a waist- high bush. Her robe opened as she bent closer to it, almost brushing her… Continue

Backstory...

Ok, I just put the website badge on my bookpage, so now's a good time to introduce myself and my little project.



My Sci-Fi/Erotic Horror/Neo-Southern Gothic Fable Banjo Strings is the opening movement in an ongoing, real time, participatory literary experiment - The Writing Process as Performance Art. I say 'experiment' because I'm breaking damn near every publishing industry rule in the process.



Backstory:



I moved to LA from Chicago in 2002. In 2005 I… Continue

3D printing the future

Posted by ARCELIUS SCOTT on August 15, 2018 at 11:30am 0 Comments

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/114240903/drawns-3d-printed-range-of-design-furniture?ref=discovery&ref=discovery&term=3d%20printed

As of today Spacefans, the link above shows my new goal for my future in the 3D printing industry. 3D print farms are on the agenda for us to build our own, create our own, and own our own manufacturing methods and processes. After we meet the goal of 3D print farms, we should most definitely set our sights on using industrial articulating robots to "scale up" the manufacturing capability within the community.

A robot can cost anywhere between $25,000 and $100,000 but the industrious entrepreneur should be able to find one on the lower end of the spectrum. I'm not here to sell robots, just here to share vision with…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

Posted by Turtel Onli on August 14, 2018 at 7:52am 1 Comment

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not reach the under served market.

This is a great opportunity & challenge foe legal honest industrious folks.  To market and distribute the Black Age of Comics indie products.

OK..... you say were the regular stores contacted?  Of course. ONLI STUDIOS even offered them spinning racks.  They…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
