The WIP turned out to be much more of a project than I initially anticipated. I plan to get back to it after C&D2.

C&D2 is what I’m presently working on, and–while I know I’ve said this before–this time I intent to finish it, God willing. I know you’ve all been waiting long enough.

    Read the book. Just listened to audiobook. Liked reading it myself better. Just my own perspective (blue crystal vs. red). This was just to get a re-fix and review while pacing the floor waiting for your C&D2 burnout to catch fire again and the sequel to release. Get some fan collaboration if needed. Late nights with coffee (or drink of choice) are always good for idea-generating brainstorms. Maybe use current self-isolation (“social distancing”) from the virus as premise in your new storyline (modified ‘enough’ like you did with Ezekiel in C&D1). Will continue to pace. 🙂

    Just finished reading C&D for a second time. I’m glad to find out you’re making a #2. It was very enjoyable.

    Ezekiel? Now that’s a grim book.

What to the Modern White Guy is “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”?

I have always been inspired by the story of Fredrick Douglass, a slave who escaped slavery to become a renowned orator and author. His is not the story of a man who was second-rate, shooed into the spotlight only for his relative accomplishments compared to his past. What use would that be? No, he was not merely any random speaker, but Fredrick Douglass, a name that survives to this day in history books, no matter how often it is skimmed over.

The Taste for Realism

I have seen, and admittedly indulged in that fan activity I will call the Fact Checking Game. It goes like this: First, you take some work of fiction, particularly a popular one, and you find some fascinating idea or claim it has. Then you deconstruct it with real world logic, checking all the facts and invariably coming up with an unrealistic or at least implausible conclusion. At this point, bemoaning that the creator did not think of this may commence. As a sequel, you can find some plausible counterpoint, and argue with the proponents of the former conclusion until the cows come home.

This is not, in itself, a bad thing.
