Special Edition of Write Stuff — Research Tips for Writers

Not too long ago, I wanted to look up the history of men’s underwear so I can determine exactly when one of my characters would begin to wear long johns.

TL:DR — I had to wash my eyes.

There were things Google brought up that I wish I’d never seen. Not to mention, I got sidetracked with a lot of extraneous information I didn’t need to know. (I didn’t really need to know that much about loincloths, but it was interesting and horrifying at the same time.) And, there were other things I wish I could burn from my memory.

But, no matter what genre you write in, sooner or later, you’ll find yourself having to research things for your books for realism and authenticity. Google, Bing, and whatever other search engine you use aren’t always the best options to do research. You want to use your time effectively so you can get back to writing your masterpiece.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — March of the Free in C Major with Keith A. Robinson

War has engulfed the Twin Galaxies!

The evil Overlord Araklial has returned from banishment. He has brought turmoil and grief to the known universe for the past seven years. During that time, Khalen Daedark and his Arranger companions have worked tirelessly to root out Tritonus infiltrators. Their efforts are aided by a mysterious source known only as the Modulator.

But the war is not going well for the Major and Perfect races. Outer planets have fallen to the enemy, and even the core worlds are now threatened.

In a desperate attempt to halt the advance of the invading forces, Khalen and the others must make questionable alliances and undertake dangerous covert missions into the heart of enemy territory. Now they must seek out the Lost Ensemble of Harmony in order to strike a counterpoint to Araklial’s dissonance and drive back his army.

March of the Free revisits the themes and motifs from Movements I and II and brings the Master Symphony to a rousing conclusion. Enter one final time into a universe of alien technologies and exotic worlds – a universe where music flows through creation as a spiritual energy shaped by powerful maestros for either harmony or discord.

Enter the thrilling climax of this symphony as I chat with my returning guest co-host and contributor Keith Robinson about the third movement on Tuesday, September 20th at 7:00 PM Eastern time. You can listen in at 646-668-8485.

Worlds Without End — The Parker J. Cole Show

Parallel dimensions. Multiple universes. Worlds without end.

Today on the Parker J. Cole show, we’ll be chatting about an article I found called “Worlds Without End: Marvel comics, quantum physics, and the secrets of the cosmos by Spencer A. Klavan”

The article was fascinating and highly effective in mixing pop culture, quantum physics, and spiritual beliefs all in one place. There is something rather alluring about the multiverse. To see how various decisions can affect the outcome not just of the individual, but the world, maybe even the universe at large. Like Schrödinger’s cat, both alive and dead. If the cat is alive in one universe, but dead in another, what will happen to the events of that timeline?

Trippy stuff.

Yet, evidence of multiverse has not been observed. If the multiverse exists, where lies its boundaries? What are the spiritual implications? If it can’t be observed, and there are scientists postulating the possibility of its existence, does that make them scientists … or philosophical clerics? Does the Lord work His will through the vehicle of the multiverse?

Yes, this article truly does have all the flavor of a delicious brain gum and who better to chew the gum with me than my returning guest co-host, and contributor, Travis Perry?

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Defending David: Ittai’s Journey with Barbara Britton

When a quiet journey to Jerusalem turns tragic, newly orphaned Rimona must flee a kinsman set on selling her as a slave. Racing into the rocky hills outside of Hebron, Rimona is rescued by a Philistine commander journeying to Jerusalem with six-hundred warriors.

Exiled commander, Ittai the Gittite, is seeking refuge in the City of David. Protecting a frantic Hebrew woman is not in his leadership plan. Although, having a nobleman’s niece in his caravan might prove useful for finding shelter in a foreign land.

Rimona and Ittai arrive in Jerusalem on the eve of a rebellion. In the chaos of an heir’s betrayal, will they be separated forever, or can they defend King David and help the aging monarch control his rebellious son?

Transhumanism and the Metaverse — The Parker J. Cole Show

On this edition of the Parker J. Cole show, we tackle transhumanism and the metaverse.

This show came about because a friend of mine, who knows what things captures my interest well, sent me an article titled, “Transhumanism and the Metaverse” by Charles Eisenstein

What can I say? I consider this article ‘brain gum’. The more you chew, the more flavorful it gets. Mr. Eisenstein goes into what transhumanism is, what the metaverse, and an analysis of where they intersect. 

Can humanity be ‘dialed and set’ to a specific odometer by integrating itself with technology? Can the metaverse fully supplant reality? If so, is that really a good idea? 

As soon as I finished the article, I knew I had to reach out to my guest, Dr. Jeff Rhoades, author of The Bible, Dimensions, and the Spiritual Realm to discuss this topic from a biblical perspective. We barely scratch the surface of this, but we certainly had a great time as we approached some items of interest from a biblical standpoint.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Prophecy of the Seventh Elizabeth with Jarrod Edge

Before his death, St. John the Apostle spoke a prophecy, sometimes referred to as “The Second Revelation of John.” But the prophecy was hidden from the world to protect it from those that sought to destroy it or cast shadows over it forever.

It foretells the coming of a great evil from beyond Earth’s solar system and it gives account of a child who would be chosen to stand against that evil on behalf of all mankind. It speaks of a soulless army that will attempt to prevent the birth of the Chosen One and if that fails, they must find the Chosen One and prevent her from standing on behalf of all mankind at “The Battle Between Light and Dark.”

A brutal contract hit on FBI Special Agent Johnathan Sette’s family leaves his life turned upside down and his newborn child missing. In order to ensure the safety of his children, he will enlist the help of the Seven Dragons family to teach them an ancient form of martial arts. Johnathan, his family, and faithful friends will hold on to their Christian faith as they battle the forces of darkness and search the world for his missing daughter, Elizabeth.

Lessons from the Life of David — The Parker J. Cole Show

It would be easy to say that God uses special or gifted people, only. Many of us, including myself, would have an excuse for not being obedient to the call on and the purpose of God for our lives. Lessons from the life of David will assure you that the Lord uses any and everyone for His purpose. When we are in a place of weakness or feeling defeated by our circumstances, David gives us insight on how we should respond. And how we should resist the temptation to be a victim. David teaches us how to be victorious!

The next thing I remember hearing is “Code Blue.” It was now pitch-black outside my ICU window at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. I don’t know what happened on that beautiful sunny morning after I opened my front door for the police officer. He was standing there in the last ray of sunshine I would see for quite some time. I guess I could look at the police report or medical records, but what’s the point. I really don’t want to be reminded of the single most horrific day in my entire life. What happened? Why was the police officer talking in slow motion?

Bill had been in Israel for thirty-three days. It was time for him to come back home. I had been expecting a phone call from him during his layover at Heathrow. Instead of Bill’s much anticipated call, I got that abominable knock at my front door!

Then I heard it again. “Code Blue.”

Everything went black. As I reflect on that disastrous day, everything was already black. My world had gone dark and void.

From what I’ve been told, I woke up the following morning with no recollection of the previous day. Apparently, those words my ears had refused to allow my mind to process were no less true just because I refused to hear them, let alone accept them.

My heart was broken. I was broken. Life as I once knew it no longer existed. There was no reason to go to the airport. Bill never boarded his connecting flight in London. The only thing at the airport now was his luggage, and there certainly wasn’t any reason for me to go claim that. Well, no reason that I knew of at the time.
