I certainly have had exhaustion and frustration before that have prevented me from writing when I wanted to be writing, but that's not really the same thing. I have also had the trouble of not being able to clearly see my way through certain plot problems, but again, that is not the same thing either. In the first instance, sometimes life just gets in the way and you have to deal with it. In the second, plot problems, I usually just think of the relevant characters in a different situation and write about that for a while. Sometimes this bares the fruit of a short story and sometimes I just clears up the plot problem and I go back to the original work. So if I were to have something like writer's block, I think I would simply take my favourite Scions and see what I could do to them in the context of a short story and leave whatever I was blocked over alone for a few days.

If my writing engages the brain of my reader, I'm happy.(less)

James H. ’s Recent Updates

Continuous Creation by James H. Peterson III
"This is a fun book that talks about serious things while not taking itself too seriously. Sometimes it reads like HHGTG, sometimes like a trivia history lesson, and sometimes like a literary soap opera. The book is obviously the beginning of a ser..." Read more of this review »
Continuous Creation by James H. Peterson III
"Continuous Creation is the first book of a trilogy and it ends sort of on a cliff-hanger. The book if full of odd bits of history and mythology, some of which are very interesting and some not so much. But the asides are all appropriate to the sto..." Read more of this review »
Continuous Creation by James H. Peterson III
"A very easy read....It is a great crossover between science fiction and fantasy. Lots of laughs (I particularly found myself howling at the ghost/moose) and lots of thought about the possibilities from the Angel/Demon view. I'm always a believer o..." Read more of this review »

“Like the bad guy said, never give an artist a Browning; they’re some of the most dangerous folks you can meet… Artists almost always want an audience, the spectacle of destruction. That name — Dadaist. It’s a dead giveaway. Expect a senseless act of mass violence, the theater of cruelty. About all I can do is try and keep him talking while you get in position to kill him. And don’t give him anything he might mistake for an audience.” --Charles Stross, “Iron Sunrise.”

James H. I Request Your Input: A good while ago now, I decided to do an update, rewrite, reimaging, whatever you want to call it of “The Bet,” by Anton Chekhov. Long story short, published in 1889, the story is about this rich bank and a lawyer that bet 2 million Rubbles that the lawyer cannot spend 15 years in solitary confinement, with a list of terms and conditions. So here are my two main questions; 1) how much money, in modern American dollars, would you want to spend 10 years in solitary confinement, and 2) speaking as the person who has agreed to spend a decade of their life in solitary confinement, what terms, and conditions would you want?
