Needs an update...



Ok, I’m doing something completely stupid, I’m setting a story in the New York Bronx area and I have never been there… Yes I know I’m crazy. And as much as I would like to jump on a plane and spend a couple months getting to know the area it’s not going to happen. Also I have thought well I can just set the story someplace else then… Nope, not going to work with these characters it has to be New York.

So my question is, does anyone have any links to some good articles or know of any good books I can buy to really get to know the city and its people?

I am in need of in-depth knowledge of a place I’ve never seen outside of a movie screen and I really don’t think I can do this story justice until I know the area as well as possible. So any help would be great in getting me started on a long road of research.


Thank you in advance.

I'm into a little bit of everything.

I have neglected Deviant Art for a long time now. And more than that I’ve neglected my art in all forms, I do not paint, I do not sculpt, I gave up FX makeup, mask making, and costuming, I have stopped doing tattoos, I barely draw and when I do it is forced. The only thing I do nowadays is crochet and that’s only when I’m depressed to take my mind off of things. Hell, I can’t even find the words to finish my novel after five years of typing. 

Two years ago I moved to a tiny dirt ball town in the middle of nowhere (No not with Eustace and Muriel Bass) where my creativity is stifled and thanks to my failing health I have no drive to create anymore.

Consider this a confession…

I think is what I’m getting at here is I feel I should apologize for giving up. Giving up on my inner artist and leaving my muse out in the cold. And though I know few will see this I feel maybe, just maybe if I put it out there in the universe admit my fault and acknowledge what has happened I can start to rebuild.

I do not promise I will run from the computer and paint a masterpiece or sculpt an epic idol but I will say maybe after today I will fight my fatigue, my pains and my own self-doubt long enough to try.

I promise here and now to try.
