New Column Went Live Today at The Seventh Star With a Motivational Post

It's been a very busy time, with so much going on with the Rayden Valkyrie TV Pilot, Imaginarium, Seventh Star Press and my writing world.  One of the new developments I have been excited about concerns The Seventh Star, the new and improved blog of Seventh Star Press that features regular columns, featured guests, and more in addition to carrying Seventh Star Press news and announcements.

I am one of the participating columnists for The Seventh Star and my column is titled "Creative Musings", to keep the vibes consistent between there and this blog.  My first post went live today, "The Only Path for Creatives is to Keep Moving Forward."

While directed at creative types like writers, filmmakers and musicians, the post and what it is getting at can be applied to anyone.  I give some thoughts on one of my main themes, the idea of needing to "Keep Moving Forward" in life, and apply it to the arts world.

I really like how this post came out and hope that it helps some folks out there who might be struggling along the road in pursuit of their dreams and ambitions.

A Few Words About BREXIT... and a Congrats to the UK

It's no secret that I always support a path of self-determination.  People should always have the right to pursue their dreams and life as freely as possible.  The role of government should only focus on issues where force or fraud are involved.

To that end, I applaud the people of the UK for having the courage to step away from the EU.  The people of the UK should determine what is best for them, not some technocrat or beaurocrat in Brussels.  It amazes me how many people are willing to allow control to slip from their own hands and into those of individuals who sit at tables where only those with great economic clout have a place.

Of course, those who voted for BREXIT are going to be called all kinds of names, find themselves belittled by arrogant celebrities (Yes, J.K. Rowling, I'm referring to those like you), and be blamed for ANYTHING that goes amiss.

Sure, there is going to be a swoon as there are powerful international money interests that are not pleased by the decision who are going to seek to "punish" the "little people" who had the temerity not to play along with the path toward a centralization of power.  There will be a little struggle, but freedom is always worth the cost over a life dictated by beaurocrats backed by force.

To those who chose a path of increased self-determination, I encourage you to stay strong and weather the storm.  Don't give in to fear and never abandon a path of having sovereignty over your own lives.

Well done, UK.  I salute you.

I Invite You to Become Part of Something Truly Positive in the Rayden Valkyrie TV Pilot Project

At the moment we are a little more than two weeks away from the goal line.  We've made progress, with 79 backers on the Kickstarter campaign totaling $6,390 in pledges.  We have posted 31 updates to the campaign, and 4 full videos.  Our Thunderclap coming up on April 7th now has 137 participants, with a reach of 260,000 people among that group.

All of it is certainly positive, but we need additional help to reach the goal.

The questions are straightforward.

If we reach the goal, our task is to deliver a TV pilot.  Will we do that?

Yes, absolutely.

Will this project benefit the Eastern Kentucky region where most of it would be produced.

Yes, absolutely.

Will this project provide numerous opportunities for a variety of talented individual?

Yes, absolutely.

Will this project be something that those involved in it, whether backing it or working on it, an be proud of?

Yes, absolutely.

I won't make this post long, as the Kickstarter site now has posts addressing all aspects of the campaign and showcasing a variety of individuals representing the kind of folks that we would build a production group with.  There are also a slew of awesome custom memorabilia items available only through this campaign, on various reward levels for pledging.

Maybe I should also mention that my deep dedication to this project and character means that I will go to every end to see that this TV Pilot is delivered at the highest level possible.

We just need a little help.  Please consider coming over to the Kickstarter project page and clicking on the "Back this Project" link on the right side, and make a pledge to help us get closer to the goal.

If you back us, we will deliver.  Thank you for reading.
