Some three thousand years ago, the Maya left behind a warning of what was to come. Over the years mankind had done their best to decipher what this warning was; as rumors spread about the end of the world, or the end of the world as they knew it. No one knew for sure what was going to take place. All they did know, was that it would happen on December 21, 2012.
Back in 1985, the government put together a group of individuals to make sense out of the Maya prediction and or warning. The group consisted of archeologists, scientists, military specialists, and astrologers. Through their research they had gathered information revealing an invasion of earth from an alien race known as Nayams.
Having believed the group had gone mad the government disbanded the group, swearing them to secrecy of their findings. Not liking the government’s decision, the group stayed in contact, forming an underground secret organization in hopes of saving mankind.
Major Herald Jacob Flintbetter took charge of the group as they set forth their plans of creating a safe haven in the depths of the goldmines in Victor, Colorado, code named Noah’s Ark. Their biggest challenge was how to get everyone to it. Keeping to their oath, not to speak of the coming event of December 21, 2012 as to not cause any panic, made this task very challenging.
While doing research for the government the group had discovered a unique ore they named, Infinity Ore. Creating modified weapons, vehicles, and fall-out shelters with the Infinity Ore, they made the task at hand look hopeful.
Herald lived his life outside of the secret organization in Hutchinson, Kansas. Having spent years preparing his custom made fall-out shelter, he hoped his fellow neighbors would take shelter with him when the time comes. Herald and his organization knew they could not save everyone, but they would do their best to save the ones they could.
When December 21, 2012 arrives, carnage unfolds as the race to Noah’s Ark begins.

Every time I try to get blogs going, I tend to let them go dry. I believe it is because I am not sure what to write about. I mean, I don’t want to bore people, I would like to gain readers not loose them. 

Anyway, I am going to see what I can do to keep this one from drying up. 

I am an artist and everyone loves pictures so here is a pencil portrait I did a couple of weeks ago.  

 

It has been a while—a long while—since I had done any pencil portraits. I feel it turned out good though. 

Oh, about my book The Harvest  book one of the 2013 series. It is going to be out this year for sure. There was some stuff I had to change that set me back some. That and life got in the way. I’m hoping for a solid release date by the first of next week. 

I will be posting something a little more interesting in the next couple of days. 

I just wanted to get on and say HI to anyone still following my blog posts, and to any new followers. 

Hope you all enjoyed the picture. If you would like to purchase a print visit one of the links below:

Chapter 4, Scene 1 from ‘2013: The Harvest’[1]

20121219-021324.jpg

Unit 700 stooped down and picked up something off the ground. “Hey guys what is this tiny little species here.” He asked, as he held out his hand.

Unit 42 came over taking a closer look. “That is what humans call a cockroach, or what we call Unit 27’s mother.” He let out a series of short laughs Unit 27, and Unit 201 laughed with him. No one else had any idea what he was talking about.

Unit 700 examined it again. “It appears to be the only thing that survived the final purge.” He squashed it between his thumb and finger, “I thought it would have been tougher than that, being able to withstand the blast and all.”

Writing on-the-go an iOS adventure

I find myself doing a lot of my writing on-the-go these days. The fun part is finding the right app to suffice my needs. I have bought many paid apps, and download just as many — if not more — free apps. The problem I have ran into is: While at home I use Scrivener for Windows — which I must say is the best program on PC,and Mac for writers of all types — the Windows version does not support syncing with outside apps like the Apple version. Trying to find a good work-around for this has been a fun little adventure.

During my adventure I have come to like the way of Markdown writing, or should I say MultiMarkdown — footnotes are nice. At first I really liked iA Writer, that was until I found out Scrivener only reads/compiles MultiMarkdown (.MMD) files. iA only reads/rites .MD, and .TXT files, so I moved on to Byword. iA has been updated. Version 1.9 now supports most plain text files including .MMD.

Byword is a lot like iA, but reads the .MMD files allowing it to work better with Scrivener. Another plus is the extra row added to the keyboard allowing easier Markdown writing, and doesn’t take away fromthe simplicity of the app. I do most of my on-the-go writing with Byword — especially my blog post. With the current update on Byword you can publish directly to WordPress, Blogspot, and other sites. This is a big plus, and makes it my go to app for writing.

Nebulous Notes is another plain text app worthy of purchase. With the most recent update, Nebulous is becoming one of my favorite writing apps. Now don’t get me wrong, I liked it before the update, but it lacked proper Multimarkdown support – could not display footnotes –
with the new update that has been fixed. Two features I have always loved about Nebulous from the start is the customizable macros, and the scratch pad.

Another good one I came across is Daedalus Touch, I had really high hopes for this one. It has a interface much like Scrivener’s cork board. I do like this app it uses the plain text style writing, recognizes MultiMarkdown, and has the option to export as an ePub. The only thing that is turning me away from Daedalus Touch — for now — it is better to start your writing project in the app than it is to open an existing project. With the way it layers your documents it is a slight pain in the rear to get them organized if you didn’t start it in the app to begin with. If Scrivener for iOS is not out by the time I am ready to start a new project then I will definitely look at using Daedalus Touch. I do love the ePub export option.

I do have Pages, and Document To Go which are both very fine apps with plenty of bells and whistles. I do not use them for my writing because they do not support the plain text style of MultiMarkdown, which I use for easier transferring back-and-forth with Scrivener and iOS apps.

To sum it all up I do like a lot of the apps I have tried, but Byword is my choice for on-the-go writing. That is until Scrivener for iOS finally gets released.

Chapter 7, Scene 4 from ‘2013: The Harvest’[1]

Unit 27 spun around getting face to face with Unit 201. “I don’t plan on going back without him.” He looked over at Sara, who was being led by Unit 53, “and, I don’t plan on Captain getting this female, she is my slave.”
