I present to you a guest blog post by my brother: Michael's Movie Mentions: Exploring Tension-Building in "The Bourne Ultimatum," and explaining how writers can use these particular cinematic techniques in storytelling.

“The Bourne Ultimatum” is a perfect film for analyzing and applying to writing, because it has many traits that are unique to this film series, one of the reasons it is widely known and well regarded as an action film.

Go check out the blog and give it a follow for new post updates!!

It’s that time of year. Halloween is in the past, pumpkins are out, temperatures are dropping, people are hopefully getting their pumpkin-spice-chai-lattes from somewhere other than Starbucks. And writers around the world are halfway through the event in…

Live on the blog: Lyric Interpretation of "Neon Gravestones" by Twenty Øne Piløts. Because I don't talk about this band enough and this particular song is gold.

Let’s talk about Twenty Øne Piløts. Again. Because they just recently released a new album called Trench, which is very exciting, and there’s a particular song I want to talk about.

This new post is snarky and just a tad sarcastic. Did I plan this? No. Am I okay with it? Yes, yes I am. So, proudly introducing ... The Writer's "Get to Know Me" Tag.

I ran faster, the stitch in my side forgotten. I felt exhausted and frustrated at how serious this seemingly innocent game of tag had become. I mean, no game of tag has ever existed for two hours, and being anxiety-prone isn’t helping each time I spot a…

How can you stay creative and artsy and still be organized? It IS possible. As a writer, blogger, and student with a part time job, bullet journaling really comes in handy. Here's how it can work for you too!

I’ve published a few bullet journal posts in the past with my writing bullet journal (which disappeared and hasn’t been attained since) and my first regular bullet journal (which I tried to use to put my life in order and that fell apart). It took me a…

Part 2 is here of my “Jumpsuit” music video analysis, complete with snapshots from the video and the application of the Dema storyline.

Today, I’m picking up where I left off in last week’s post, Part 1 of my music video analysis of Twenty Øne Piløts’s song “Jumpsuit.” Which would be about at 2:15 in the music video itself: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOUBW8bkjQ4?ecver=2]

New blog post! Here's Part 1 of my Music Video Analysis of Twenty Øne Piløts' new song "Jumpsuit."

Twenty Øne Piløts recently released two songs for their new album “Trench”: “Jumpsuit” and “Nico and the Niners.” If you haven’t yet heard this news, you were asleep. Time to wake up. First off, the people I know who are TØP fans either really like or…

New post! Here I talk about sci-fi, breaking the fourth wall in fiction and speculating the existance of other worlds.

Ever since I decided to become a writer and publish a book, my stories have been all about breaking the fourth wall. No matter who the characters are, what the genre is, or what the story is about, the plot is centered on a main character who is seemingly…
