I've never had to deal with writer's block because I tend to write from a place that is very similar to feeling blocked already. When the heaviness of my own personal circumstances, those of my country, or even something global feels heaped up on my brain like a cartoon anvil, that's when I start typing to purge that frustration. It's a constructive way to deal with negative emotions.

Make no mistake, negative emotions have value and can be transmuted into something epic if you use them right. You're told to strive for happiness at all times, and that people who are angry are bad. Not true. There is good anger, and I think I have it. I'm betting you have some too.

I've never thought about it much, but the first that came to mind was Wash and Zoe from Firefly. I love that the show starts off with this strong, sexy, happy, mixed-race couple where both have their strengths and see each other as equals. We skip over the cutesy dating stuff and the "will they/won't they" tropes and get right into a real marriage with all the conflict and affection that goes with it. Plus, they're cool and hilarious.

Friends and neighbors,

The company that brought you the madcap hilarity of Rick and Morty and the musical melancholy of Anomalisa are raising funds on Kickstarter for their next project, The Crawling King, a dark fantasy that feels like an illustrated Lovecraft sat down with "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark." Go check it out and support them. These people are friends of mine, colleagues, and a... Read more of this blog post »

“We're a society of brats, fighting over the same toys. That, for me, is the closest we come to be inherently evil as a people. It leads to selfishness, inflexibility, and impatience -- among so many other traits that are ugly and harmful. We're combative, competitive, petty, and suffer from one fatal flaw that I can never get my head around. We recognize behavior in others that makes us insane, while turning right around and doing the exact thing to someone else.”
Trevor D. Richardson

“We’ve been so busy with these things we let ourselves think actually mattered, but they don’t. There’s no such thing as the right career, or morality, or destiny, or fate. There’s only life. And whether you honor it or ignore it. It’s ironic, but in trying to find God we’ve been ignoring life.”
Trevor D. Richardson, Dystopia Boy: The Unauthorized Files

“It’s all society is, the repressed sex drives of men, the objectification of women, their paranoia, the posturing, the macho stances, the beauty standard, it’s all just one charade masking a never ending hard on.”
Trevor D. Richardson, Dystopia Boy: The Unauthorized Files

“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.”
Ray Bradbury

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
Ray Bradbury
