Villain on Villain: Writing more than one villain into your stories and scripts

As I've written in a previous blog, 'nothing makes a great story like a good villain.' So when spinning your tale for readers or the screen, what do you do when there's more than one bad guy? There are a number of scenarios in which a story will have more than one villain. Often, it will be a series of…

Iona's Landing (Part Two)

Vacation. The word sounded so foreign to her. It wasn’t something she had even thought about since she first got her job with Rider. Once she made up her mind she was going to get it done without pause and that had been the idea for the last few years.

She walked the streets of Illium, feeling a strange calm that only the colony could give. She decided to grab some food and think about what she would do next. She found a small little restuarant. A real hole…

inadvertenly I've been there...

I hope it is safe to talk about these things, it's been a while. I used to work as an electrical drafter at NASA Glen. It was a 5 year contract and when it ran out, I tried to get an extension. I helped do some wiring drawings to install new wiring in some of the labs. Man, that was an adventure. No white walls or coats there, small sliver of a dingy room behind rows of iron barn type doors. There was a strange place though, I don't think I was allowed to go in there. Pretty big space, had…

Interrupted Journey: Part 9

Alita and the surviving crew took refuge in a cave after she landed the pod. Of course it was a rough landing and Alita could only breathe relief that no more crew members perished. She scurried from the cave when darkness fell. She knew she was taking an enormous risk returning to the pod. But she needed its communication equipment…what she could salvage of it at least.…

the power we had

Years ago I had an interest in all things mystical, of late African astrology. I thought it was maybe similar to today's horoscope so I was ready to match up Egyptian names to Roman names and call it a day. Now I read that African astrology was not star science alone. Then they showed a person 'consulting the bones" and I said wait a minute. Then they explained a system similar to Iching. How in the heck can you...........the key to this "science" is geomancy. I understand because geomancy…

Posted by Joe Pledger on October 8, 2018 at 2:20am 0 Comments

DC's answer to the film 'Black Panther' should be 'Icon'!  Starring Denzel Washington as Augustus Freeman and either Zendaya or Amandla Stenberg as Rocket,  'Icon' is the story of how an alien crash lands in a cotton field in 1839 and adopts the appearance of the first person that comes into contact with it being a slave woman.  He lives through American history leaving behind a legacy as his next begotten's namesake arriving in the present day as August Freeman IV.  Convinced of his otherworldly abilities to better his race by a teenager name Rocket,  Augustus Freeman becomes the superhero 'Icon'. 


The illustration is of an actor named John Garrett.…

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.
