Well after what felt like a very long time, whatever it was that was stopping me from writing, has taken a hike and hopefully it won't return for a while, but I owe it all to my favourite T.V Show: Fringe as well as what I hope to become my 2nd favourite T.V Show: V.
I just finished watching the newest episode of Fringe on Fox after waiting, somewhere between 1 and 2 weeks, and I finally got those juices… Continue

Thanks for commenting and leaving me some valuable information. I really appreciate it! I seem to be headed in the right direction, so I will continue with finding a publishing company.

When my book THE SANDMAN was released in Feb 2009 I was very excited. I learned my novel would be available in all the popular websites, but was eager to see my book on display in stores. Like many new authors I first went to the big-box bookstores (Borders, BarnesandNoble, Bookstar) and figured this would be no problem since my book was available for purchase on their websites. Boy was I wrong. Corporate America has made it difficult for new authors who don't have a recognizable name. But when… Continue

It's the Dream Theater Logo, which happens to be one of my favourite bands IN THE WORLD... and yes I realize the Pumpkin's is upside down from the reference picture, but I… Continue

For anyone who's interested, I thought I'd give you a brief look at what I'm planning on tackling next. I've yet to come up with a name for the Story, but I've developed three of the four Protagonists and the main Antagonist. I'm not going to give you any names, but I will give you the basic story-line that I've came up with so far. Nothing I have is set in stone yet and may or may not be changed before I start working on it.

Waiting for Inspiration to Strike
New writers often think they need some kind of special inspired feeling or mood in order to begin writing. Successful professional writers, on the other hand, have trained their minds to be productive no matter what mood they might be in. They get up in the morning and go to work, just as though it was any other kind of job. They make progress on their book each and every day.

One of the questions famous authors are asked most frequently by their readers is: Where do you get your ideas for stories? To some readers, this process of generating ideas is mysterious, almost mystical. But authors find that creating concepts for stories is just part of their job. They train their minds to continually provide them with fresh ideas to put down on paper. But sometimes they too are amazed when an idea occurs to them, seemingly out of nowhere, they grab a pad and pen, and a few… Continue

I was inspired to write my novel about a saboteur on a mission to destroy the nuclear reactor in Iran when I learned of Iran's nuclear program in 1994. I have wanted to be a writer since I was 14 years old (visit my website www.DavidLuceroSandman.com for my author bio) and was looking for an idea of an action/adventure story when I read an article in the newspaper how Russia was assisting Iran build a nuclear reactor for $700.
After the fall of the Soviet Union the new Russian… Continue

Well I've worked through a side splitting headache to get this part written down before I forgot it. I've hopefully improved a little since the last passage that I posted, and, as always, please let me know if you see something that either looks wrong or even sounds interesting and/or cool. I really appreciate the opinions and advice.

Sitting alone, in a dimly lit room
She brushes her graying hair
From her face and sighs,
Scrutinizing her reflection
In the window as the rain beats.
Her dulled eyes fill as they do so easily these days.
Even she can see their sadness
That concerned friends comment on,
But only amongst themselves,
Too afraid of hurting her but unsure of why.
They feel her pain,
But she has distanced herself now
So it… Continue

There's a rush to my brain
and my body falls inside itself
Even though the smell
brings back horrid memories
Its my way of letting the problems go
The smell the slight addiction
The intake of smoke filling my lungs
and the long unwanted yet needed release
a giggle that ripples through
and the silly smile that goes along
my wondrously hurtful cancer stick
How I want you yet repulsed by you
Its an addiction I can… Continue

First off, I guess I should apologize for the disappearance act I pulled there. I wasn't feeling all like myself the last few days (more like last few weeks), but I decided that today I'd get up and get some work done rather then sit around and do nothing, which got boring pretty quickly. I've gotten about 6 more pages written for Shadows and am currently working on the first Chapter, which I believe is still nameless, but I'll share a little bit from it, probably my favourite part as of… Continue

Unseen tears fall as even now I truly can't show how I feel.
I wonder why that is, that I can't just shout
And scream and say what my heart & soul wants to...
But I choose instead to withdraw into myself and
Pull on my well worn mask of positivity.
We go way back, my mask and I.
More years than I care to admit, even to myself.
So weathered now from overuse,
Thinned to the point of transparency
Yet moulded perfectly to my… Continue

Yellow is my once white dress
dried are the roses
that I held in my hands
torn and tattered is my head dress
that trailed behind me
Boney and ghoulish my beautiful body has turned
from all the years I have waited for you
oh sweet unfulfilled love
I waited for you
the guest have gone
and the Father has blown out the candles
The wind blows through the broken saints
And my tears are now ashes
Oh how I've waited
and I still… Continue

Can I really work without my ruckus in my ear
Will my mind wonder as its doing now
Do I need their screams
their tales of hurt and pain
Can I really concentrate
Should I dramatically throw
my headphones to the floor
Should I stomp and scream
recreate their beats
I need my music
I need my screamers
my pretend bleeders
their unfulfilled loves
that lead to psychopathic murders
Can I really concentrate
