#BackerFit: Get Fit Through Crowdfunding!

So, as I was working on promoting my crowdfund on night shift recently (during which time I also worked out a fair amount, and idea came to mind. Why not combine two things I’m passionate about? My writing and its associated crowdfund, and fitness. As some of you might know, I’m training to get onContinue reading “#BackerFit: Get Fit Through Crowdfunding!”

I’m Back! Also, an Important Aspect of a Creator’s Mindset.

It’s been a while, sorry about that! Part of that is on me, for focusing more on finishing Galaxy Ascendant 5–it’s complete!–and just not getting to writing here.

Reclaiming “Strong Female Characters” in Science Fiction

There has been a lot of talk, and a lot of criticism about, a recently release Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures animated short. This particular episode is basically a fawning tribute to Princess Leia, with a focus on the scenes in the Death Star in A New Hope.

How to Win the Culture War

It’s no secret that we’re currently engaged in a culture war, whether you want to admit it or not. Most of the people who run “mainstream” culture, especially geek culture, tend to be from one single side of the political divide—the Left—and often very far to that side. We see it in their pushing ofContinue reading “How to Win the Culture War”
