All Part of the Plan (Even if we don’t see it yet)

No, this post isn’t about government or corporate conspiracies. There’s more than enough talk about those sorts of unpleasant things going on already. Maybe another time lol. No, this is a positive post, since the One behind the plan is far, far greater than you or I. As many of you likely know already, I’veContinue reading “All Part of the Plan (Even if we don’t see it yet)”

Let Heroes Stay Heroes

What? A new post? Yeah, finally back to this. I’d blame the recent fracas with Hamas & starting a new job for my absence, but it’s mostly my fault for not managing my time better. Hopefully I’ll be at least semi-regular going forward. Now, on to the topic at hand. People talk about the heroesContinue reading “Let Heroes Stay Heroes”

The Problem With Jewish Characters in Fiction (And My Solution)

(I was really tempted to work Jewish Question into the title of this article for extra edgy points, but I held myself back lol.) Now, to get the basics out of the way first. I’m a religious Jew myself, so obviously I don’t have a problem with Jewish characters existing in fiction. Similarly, I don’tContinue reading “The Problem With Jewish Characters in Fiction (And My Solution)”

The Sad State of YouTube “Culture Warriors”

I’ve talked a little but about this before, mostly over on twitter, but seeing as David V. Stewart has written an excellent article on the issue, it deserved another mention, even if it’s mainly to point you to his very comprehensive post. For those blissfully unaware of what we’re talking about, there’s basically a smallContinue reading “The Sad State of YouTube “Culture Warriors””

A Look at Military Leadership in Attack on Titan

With Attack on Titan‘s excellent final season in full swing now, it’s obviously on my mind a bit more lately, so I wanted to talk about the show. However, there’s so much that can be said about it, and if I wanted to cover even just a portion of it, we’d be here all week.Continue reading “A Look at Military Leadership in Attack on Titan”

Plans For 2021: Ramping it up to Eleven

It’s a new year, which means it’s time to lay out my (writing) plans for this year. A lot of preparation was done last year so I can make this one my best yet. So, let’s get started! Year of the Isekai Light Unto Another World: You’ve heard me talk about this exciting new series,Continue reading “Plans For 2021: Ramping it up to Eleven”

Quarantine Observations (It Sucks)

So, these last 13 days have been an unusual experience. After a few months visiting family in NYC, I returned to Israel, and, due to the coronavirus, I had to go right into a two-week quarantine. And, as this is something altogether new for me and many others, it seems like something good reflect on.Continue reading “Quarantine Observations (It Sucks)”

A Vision Realized

2020 is many things, both good and bad, but for me, in one sense, at least, it represents a milestone. This is the year where a vision over 15 years in the making finally becomes complete. We’re a matter of a couple weeks away from the release of the 7th and final book in the┬áGalaxyContinue reading “A Vision Realized”

Beware The Purge Culture

As if this year wasn’t already enough of a mess, this week brought a new shock, one that was of particular relevance to me, as a big fan of American Ninja Warrior, and someone actively training for Ninja Israel (and maybe one day American Ninja Warrior too). To sum things up very quickly, Drew Drechsel,Continue reading “Beware The Purge Culture”
