I ask myself a couple of questions:

-what plot point am I working towards?

-is there a better way to reach that point?

Think of it as mental parkour. If you can't go straight to it, go around it, above it, or beneath it. Probe from different angles.

If the answer doesn't come to you then, step away from the work for a while. Eventually, the answer will hit you when you least expect it.(less)

The Guns and Gear of NIGHTMARE EXODUS

In the tradition of my friend Peter Nealen, I figured I’d give a rundown of some of the gear featured in the sophomore novel of the Forsaken Patriots series, Nightmare Exodus.


WARNING: THE FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Steven Hildreth Jr. Steven Hildreth Jr. said: " The end was predictable, and the politics slanted heavily left and green, but in the end, the characters made it worth the read. The feel is very dark and gritty, almost to the point of noir infused with the romanticism of a revolutionary. Cohen does ...more "

“I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: if you fuck with me I'll kill you all.”

“We decry violence all the time in this country, but look at our history. We were born in a violent revolution, and we've been in wars ever since. We're not a pacific people.”

“I am the punishment of God...If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me upon you.”
Genghis Khan

“Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.”
Bill Bixby as Dr. David Banner

“War has changed.

It's no longer about nations, ideologies, or ethnicity. It's an endless series of proxy battles, fought by mercenaries and machines.

War--and it's consumption of life--has become a well-oiled machine.

War has changed.

ID-tagged soldiers carry ID-tagged weapons, use ID-tagged gear. Nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities.

Genetic control, information control, emotion control, battlefield control…everything is monitored and kept under control.

War…has changed.

The age of deterrence has become the age of control, all in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction, and he who controls the battlefield, controls history.

War…has changed.

When the battlefield is under total control, war becomes routine.”
David Hayter as Solid Snake
