I write what's inside my head, and it is messy sometimes #amwriting #writerslife

Creation is always happening. It may not be the creation you want, but it is there. And it drives on in all its messy splendor. The more I create the better I get at it. The mind needs to be worked, especially the imagination. So I write, read, draw, and observe. All of these are essential to become a good writer, but they aren't neat. Sometimes none of it makes sense--at least not at first. My goal is to get it out and refine it. I don't have to get it right the first time, which is why I can write these vague, rambling posts. I'm letting myself be free.

Scumbag #Charlotte DA decides not to charge #KeithScott killer, who is a police officer

Thug with a badge, and he got off. He killed a man for no reason. DA's don't charge cops who murder black men these days. They don't do it in Merica, and it will only get worse under Donald Trump. Get ready for the carnage because you ain't seen nothing yet.

We live in the era of police murderers. They don't keep us safe. They kill black men. It is deplorable, and it makes you ashamed to live in this country.

#Infowars troll sighting

I saw this bum today when I was driving to the library. Avoid this fool if you can.


 

I write what's inside my head, and it can be dangerous #writerslife #amwriting

Oh the unspoken barbs that are written as they rain out my mind upon the page. They are dangerous, sheer fire, I tell you. Such is the power of thought exercised outside a vacuum. But some people don't want me to speak or express any opinion. For those of you who feel that way, deal with it. I really don't care. In fact, it lets me know I am doing the right thing.

I write what's inside my head because it's too hard not to #amwriting #writerslife

I am a prisoner of my thoughts and of the page. Both bind me to spilling out my musings, but I would do it regardless of my freedom. We are all bound by something. Constructs impose their will on us, and none of us is free of constructs. All is a question of degree.

We are supposed to be thankful, but for what? We are alive. Who gives a shit? Mere existence is not a reason to be thankful because, if you did not exist, there would be no other perception of reality. You could not experience the absence of existence. So being thankful for not being dead makes no sense.

Most of the world makes no sense.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and the #basketofdeplorables

Morons are in the administration. What's new for the evil Trump? He's taken the basket of deplorables to the next level.

We shall see what happens, but it won't be good.

Bad times are upon us, and they won't abate. My friends, winter is coming in so many ways.

Duped #BasketofDeplorables

Keep saying it. Deplorable, stupid, and wretched. So what are these Trump people going to do? No indictment for Hillary, benefits cut, and corporate welfare for the wealthy. Hardly the "populist" they envisioned. They have to be the dumbest block of voters in world history. I take that back: the Germans who elected Hitler were stupider, but give the Basket of Deplorables time. They are up to the task. 

These dumb assholes got sold a bill of goods. 

Is it redundant to call #DonaldTrump a #Nazi?

I mean he's a Nazi in every other way. He hates blacks (he calls them "the blacks"), Muslims, Hispanics, Democrats, lawyers, free speech, the courts, people who criticize him, pictures of himself that show his double chin (that's a few chins short), SNL, Alec Baldwin, Green Day, the cast of Hamilton, and many others. The list goes on, and it will grow throughout his hopefully short presidency. Let's hope he's impeached and convicted sooner rather than later.

And what will Trump do about it? Stifle free speech by shutting down the press. Sound familiar? Then he wants to register Muslims. Warmer still.

He made a White Nationalist his chief policy advisor and a racist his Attorney General pick.

What's next? Trump youth? We already have that--sort of--look at those red hats with "Make America Great Again" on them. Expect his supporters to start beating people up and killing them. Wait...they are doing that already.

So isn't Trump the same thing as a Nazi? Trump=Nazi so saying he's a Nazi is redundant, but it does bear repeating.

#Hamilton



 

I write what's inside my head till it hurts #amwriting #writerslife

Today can suck if you let it. It is tough to say it all in a few sentences, but sometimes that's all you need. Sometimes it can be one word or it can't be said in a million words. Words work. And they don't work. It hurts to say it. It is effortless. You never know.

#Merica and #GameofThrones

This is so true. Trump supporters don't read books though.

I write what's inside my head against evil forces #amwriting #writerslife

We are filled with monsters. They have revealed themselves at the highest level of power. All the fears are realized. It is my job to point it out, and to fight against it. The coarse fog of oppression is rolling over us, but we need to speak out against it. Our words and deeds can push it back. It needs to go back into its cave. Then we need to roll the stone in front of it. And it must stay there never to be seen again.

Emptying of the #BasketofDeplorables

This guy blocked all traffic at a Starbucks no less. Why is he even in a Starbucks? His ilk aren't Starbucks types in that the Trump supporters are bigoted white people.

Maybe I will get my Starbucks at Barnes &Nobles. I know I won't see any deplorables there. They don't read books.

#micropoetry "Burnt Husk"

A burnt husk
waits for the fire.
But it may not come.
It probably will, though.
Fires usually do burn everything.

I write what's inside my head even if I'm a burnt husk in an approaching brush fire #amwriting #writerslife

There's an eerie calm that comes from yelling into the fire burning your way when everyone else has run. It is lonely, but your voice has clarity and strength. It is the only sound in the absence of humanity filed by your. But for you, it would be a void. I try and keep the void from spreading. Even if the flame burns forward, I ignite my own counter-flame, so to speak.

I'm ready for the burn, and it doesn't scare me.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and #NoBannon

He's evil. We all know that. There is no other way to describe him, and he is at the right hand of the equivalent of a king. "Humpty-Dumpty" and Rasputin working together while they screw the American people.

This is not a great time to be alive my friends. We are an empire in decline, a burnt husk in a dry field with an approaching brush fire.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter

It isn't too late. Darkness is here, but there is light in the darkness. There always is. Nothing is irrevocable. Nothing, my friends.

Rage against the forces of oppression. They cannot silence all of us.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's inside my head to deal with the it all #amwriting #writerslife

I won't shut up anytime soon. In fact, I am going to get louder and longer winded because that's what's needed now. Shout it out. Scream it into the ether so people can hear it. If they don't hear it, knock them down with your words.

My thoughts are swords that can kill bad ideas.


Happy #VeteransDay

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and the banality of hope

Hope may seem illusory these days, my friends, but it isn't. Even though it may sound banal to say, "Hope springs eternal," it isn't. Better days will come.

I fight against enemies each day, and I have faced adversity and death more times than I can count. And I always come out on top. I'm here after all, aren't I? How else would you read my musings? I face impossible odds each day, and I come back.

So can you.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's inside my head to those who need to hear my truth #amwriting #writerslife

You need to listen to a different perspective. You've been yelling into a lead pipe only hearing your own echoes. And that's why you are going to get screwed. You are already screwed, but you will be screwed more.

Don't blame me when I point out these things that you should be able to see. But you can't see them because you are stupid. And you just did a really stupid thing. Sit in your shit, and let it sting your ass.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and this is what we are dealing with

When it breaks down, it is ugly, my friends. The old ways aren't old. They are still in vogue for many you didn't know about. But I know about all those you didn't know about. It is my job to remember such things.

You can read about my story (Vampire Esquire Book Two.)  and Vampire Esquire Book One  .

But see this:



IT IS WRONG.

I write what's inside my head on the toughest of days #amwriting #writerslife

It is hard to write it all down some days, but it is an escape. Escaping doesn't last long, and I don't want to escape. It is nice to play in my mind for a bit, though, to forget the mess of it all. We come back to it, and it never leaves us. We think it is gone, but it hides in a mental crevasse. The worst thoughts do.

Not a lot to say today. Words are garbled letters trying to say something, but falling silent.

It will improve or it won't.

I write what's inside my head on the best days, and on the worst days #amwriting #writerslife

Today should be a good day, and I suspect it will be. It has to end well or it won't be a good day though. It will be defined by whether Hillary Clinton wins, and I think she will. If she loses, we will be plunged into darkness. But that's not going to happen.

I've said a lot about Donald Trump throughout this election cycle. It is hard to narrow it all down, but I can sum it up best with this one descriptor: motherfucker. That's what he is, a motherfucker.

#DonaldTrump will always love #VladimirPutin

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and #ElectionEve #ElectionDay2016

My friends, it is almost here. We are about to dodge the bullet and free ourselves of the threat of this loon with bad hair and a turkey neck. He will soon be thrown upon the trash heap of history. Rightfully so, my friends.

His kind must never be reanimated. Let the metaphorical dead corpse of his "movement" stay dead as a door nail.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's inside my head even when I'm out of my mind #writerslife #amwriting

My fingers may be calloused from typing and writing so much, but they feel good. It feels great to get it out and give it life, my thoughts. Thoughts need to walk around on the page regardless of what they are. They need to be given a place to grow into other peoples' minds. That's what thoughts do. They start out alike a seed, and then the grow. We form the stalks and the plants. It may sound crazy--like I'm out of my mind--but you know it is true.

I write what's inside my head like it just won't quit #amwriting #writerslife

Pixels, ink, or pencil, it all comes out as words. They capture the essence of my expression, but they are just words. They are imbued with some meaning, but not all the meaning. All of the meaning is never grasped at any time. It goes on. It won't quit, so I keep putting it out there even when I don't say it all. Because I never can.

I write what's inside my head because it feels good #amwriting #writerslife

Writing it is good enough for me. Getting it out, and talking about getting it out, are enough sometimes. Then I go back and make sense of it, though it has a certain moral clarity to it when spoken raw. Raw is truer most of the time. It isn't refined or cleaned up. Better to say it outright in all its flawed perfection.

Perfection is better when flawed. Contradiction is sublime symmetry. 

#BasketofDeplorables are a national "dumpster fire" led by #DonaldTrump

When the election is over, these asshats need to be smacked in the face (figuratively). They are too loud, and too bigoted. They have no place in our country. Hatred like that isn't something any of us should condone. I feel like a broken record, but they don't seem to be going away.

One week. We are one week away, and it should all be over soon. Finally. It will be over at least in terms of the election. The "basket of deplorables" will still be there though, madder than ever in their ignominious defeat.
