After several years and one election, I have decided to move away from “If It Thinks.” The reason is that I have gotten much more deeply involved with the study of Scripture. In truth, I find I had been avoiding this commitment to stay in touch with current events. In the study of Scripture, it is […]
I have been hearing how awful America is since the 60’s. In that space of time I have seen what other nations have done to their populace. Soviet Union, China, Iran and Iraq to name but a few. Let’s go back in time to when I was not alive. WW 2 (not to mention WW 1). […]
Antifa. I call this loose affiliation of Soviet ex-patriots Aunty Fay. Does it seem like what I have been saying for the last two and one-half years might actually be the truth? That during the 60’s the Soviets sent to us, through eastern Europe, dissidents to infiltrate our college;s and Universities to foment a “United State […]
A new theme. Register and post your comments. This is new to me and probably new to you but I am going out on a limb and allowing registration and in-line commenting. Do right by me and I’ll do right by you.
So, this person gets an idea that he or she should run for public office. They don’t like what they are seeing and hearing about what some level of government is doing for or against the public trust. Let;s just say that this person is some guy like me or you. he develops a platform […]
I’m back after having taken a vacation after my vacation. No apologies, I needed the respite from writing this blog. So, without further ado: Our Tax Structure. I think I will get a lot of agreement when I say that our tax “structure” is actually a concrete and steel megastructure built on the backs of the middle […]
I am starting to write my 3rd novel. As much as I love writing this blog my first love is storytelling. Not just a long post but chapter after chapter.
I already have a short outline and the first line of the novel written. My process is to write without an outline as my mind chafes at doing things twice and I change my mind at a moments notice to add characters, events or just 180’s in a story. I will be writing this as an ebook
I will be writing this as an ebook on one of my websites, aptly named, ecrowe.com. Guess what?!! You can join that site if you’d like. Generally, I sell these novels as I go on a chapter by chapter basis. Depending, the cost is $0.99 to $1.50 per chapter. I write 3 chapters ahead before I put them up for purchase as n one, including myself, wants to pay for something on a layaway plan.
What I do, however, is to place teasers on the home page to give you a taste of what the novel is about. I never put start and end dates on a novel. That never works. The problem for my readers is that a lot of you lose interest in the meantime. After all, this is the age of flash satisfaction and writing is still “old school.” This is to say that I am backing off my thought process here to concentrate on the book.
This is to say that I am backing off my thought process here to concentrate on the book. Originally I thought to shut down this website but that isn’t necessary. If it is a long time between posts you are welcome to send me an email and ask me to write about something you would like my take on. That missive I will respond to quickly no matter how involved I am in the novel. Best to send the email HERE.
For the past several weeks I have been researching a lot of very different avenues concerning Western Civilization. For that matter, I suppose one could say that what I have been looking at is the civilized societies (so called) of the world. Comparisons require a base or foundational starting point so I went back to […]
A lot of people started claiming that the U.S. government being secretive is a bad thing in the last several decades. In one way, I agree. There are secrets inside our government which concerns double-dealing and that type of thing which just shouldn’t be. I do draw the line at secrecy which concerns our armed forces. […]
