Former neuroscience researcher, born again horror writer. During my studies, it struck me as odd that I could learn so much about why humans behave without understanding the intricacies of human nature. It occurred to me that I learned more about the depths of human experience from reading Dostoyevsky than I ever had from my text books, and I was inspired to write.

I break down the concept I am working on into the smallest possible component parts, and then rebuild from the ground up.

Example: I can't figure out why the mentor character would care about helping my worthless protagonist!

Solution: The concept of the mentor can be broken down into his parts: helpfulness, mastery of skill, moral stance, back story, enemies he has made, etc.
Then I break down the protagonist into his parts: drive, motivation, talent, end goal, danger, etc.

I find when the components are separated it is easier to see where interactions can occur, and it inspires me to devise a fitting scenario.

Aha! The mentor's enemies could line up with the danger the protagonist is in, and the mentor feels guilt for involving the fledgling hero and must protect him. (less)

The Other me

There are walls in this world that cannot be crossed. There is no force so great, nor light so harsh, nor sound so loud as to penetrate them. These walls are hidden from us, and we may go our entire life not realizing what secret places we are forbidden to enter.





How can one know about such walls that cannot be seen or felt? There are secret places where the walls are stretched thin, where it’s...

“Although it was only a single instrument, each note had the peculiar echoed quality of a thousand harmonics voiced together. There was a whisper behind the strongest note and a shout beneath the softest, and they sang of far off places in long forgotten times. There were no words, but the images of ancient pride, noble heritage, and castles in the sand were imagined from the progression. This was the song that would be played at the birth of a nation, full of hope and promise of better days ahead. This was the song of the end of days with all love and longing lost beyond recall or desire. Farris could see this song playing at her wedding, or her funeral, as a herald of joy and sorrow. She found tears in her eyes and heard herself laugh, and she couldn’t say why she was doing either. Her skin was tense and covered with goosebumps, and she shivered with pleasure.”
Tobias Wade, The First Man: An Enlightened Journey

“He couldn’t do anything because he felt like shit. He felt like shit because he couldn’t do anything. And on and on, doubts feeding doubts. Hating her and loving her, and then hating himself for both”
Tobias Wade, Brutal Bedtime Stories
