Don’t you hate unpredictable weather? No matter , whether its rain or shine , you can never be quite ready for it. One minute it’s a nice sunny day and then BOOM ! The thunder hits and next thing you know it your drenched from the pouring rain. I should know because I’ve had it happen to me. But when this type of weather comes you want to be ready for it.
Everybody has seen or read Nicholas Spark’s the Notebook right? Well if you haven’t, you should. I’m sorry I’m telling you what to do but as a writer it is a great book and of course movie to learn from on how to write the narrative framing story
Rivalry in sports are a given and easily identifiable. Because there is an instantaneous villain and hero. You have one team against another . And boom there is rivalry . The stakes are high.

I been dancing around this topic for a while now but I been trying to save it since most of my short stories within the Blue Hour Series will contain this technique;The narrative framing or bookend with flashbacks technique. Or “the here and now story”, where the story is just one long flashback .

Self-publishing is important. Especially important if you do not want to and cannot take the traditional publishing route.
I’m currently rewatching a tv show that I have watched a dozen times before. One of my favorites actually. It is the BBC show Merlin that premiered back in 2008. When I say this is one of my favorite shows. It’s like number one of my favorites .
A fun new music playlist for the upcoming short story IN THE HOUR OF HUMANITY. A short story that is part of the During The Blue Hour work in progress novel series.
I know what you’re thinking . We don’t want to see or read a characters backstory. We want to see them in the present. This is sloppy writing. Terrible way to start a story. But I don’t believe that’s true because there is a short story /novel connection.
Did you know the earliest surviving werewolf film was a 1925 silent film directed by George Chesbro and cinematography by Lesley Selander,
