Writing on Culture

 

I had trouble sleeping last night.  Some nights my brain just won’t shut up.  I was lucky this time.  This sleepless night translated to creativity.  I’ve always wanted to find a different way to look at culture and the world we grow up in.  By telling stories, I want to be able to explain a  truth I wouldn’t otherwise be able to put into words.  I feel like I have finally done that with the short story below.  I will almost certain be turning this story into something more.  I already have an outline to make this at least a novella.  We shall see.

My Kickstarter campaign to help publish The Stagner Chronicle is ready.  All I am waiting for now is the verification of my account.  It’ll likely take a few more days before I can officially get it up.  I can’t tell you how excited I am for this.  I do believe I can turn it into a success.  I hope you will all join me.  Until then, enjoy the story.

Kickstarter & Video Storytelling

I’m pretty sure I am going to do a Kickstarter campaign to help my latest novel–The Stagner Chronicle–get off the ground.  The website is set up in a way that makes it a perfect alternative to publishing.  I’ve been looking through campaigns similar to the one that I am creating.  Many people were able to meet their goals and surge past them.  I hope I can pull off the same thing.  I’m going to place my goal low anyway.

In order to make a successful Kickstarter campaign, videos explaining yourself are essential.  I made one for the campaign itself.  Then I decided to try reading one of my short stories aloud to provide an example of my storytelling.  It ended up being really fun.  I may start doing this for everything I put up on the site.  I want everyone to tell me what they think.  Linked below is a short story I uploaded a few months ago.  It now has a video at the top of it where I read it with the emotion it was intended to have.  Let me know!
