More than half a year …

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on 03/26/2013 by Angel D. Vargas

It’s been more than half a year now since I started my serial, Unbreakable. Its evolution has been incredible, at least to me. I hope my readers feel the same way if they’ve been keeping up.

I’ve had to pull back to writing and posting something every two weeks. I think it’s working so far. I was able to come back to this latest installment with some fresh perspective. I wonder how it will change the direction of this serial. I hope you’re all as excited as I am.

Speaking of which, it is time for the mighty Zeke to get his bearings again after losing his way. I rather know how that feels.

Than again, sometimes those skin conditions can make you look like kind of a yeti in the morning, neh? 😉

Read chapter 26 of “Unbreakable.” Celebrate more than half a year of crazy stuff written by yours truly. Enjoy it. Vote on it!  Spread the word too, especially if you enjoy monsters, people with incredible, untapped power, and children who may or may not have demonic relatives. I’m rather partial to this serial. I want others to enjoy it too.

This is one tired warrior.

There are times in my life when I wonder if the effort has all been worth it.

Waking up, suiting up, and showing up are all the proposed solutions to the problems of today’s “30 somethings” who struggle in today’s economy.

I don’t know how to sum up all the things that I have done and the things that I have yet to do in order to change that for myself.

Sometimes, after spending three hours dotting my “I’s” and crossing my “T’s” and watching my professional P’s and Q’s, I have to ask myself a couple of things:

1) – What’s with all the stupid advice involving single letters of the alphabet?

2)- Can I do this anymore?

I’ve got writing and editing to do yet today, and I’ve spent the better part of four hours coming up with a cover letter and revamping a resume, once more, for a job I dearly hope to get.

 

I need a break.

 

Still, it beats sitting around, biting my fingernails about the whole affair. I don’t have time for whining. I’d rather be winning.

 

Chapter 20

Chapter 20 of my serial, ‘Unbreakable,’ is up and ready for the approval of my loyal readers.

Life has been replete with change. both good and bad. While the dust settles, I will have to fuss with the timing of these chapters. I apologize to any and all who were expecting my Friday frenzy of gore and internal conflict.

 

Enjoy!

Chapter 17

Posted in Uncategorized on 01/11/2013 by Angel D. Vargas

I don’t know why, but I thought of “Hostile 17” when I wrote that title. Bonus points to anyone who gets that reference.

At any rate, chapter 17 for my serial, Unbreakable is up. Go..read..vote..enjoy.

Time to go to work.

NYC in Pictures

Getting out there is hard. I know some people think it’s easy to go out in public, meet new people, hang out with them over a few drinks, cut a rug, shoot the shit, whatever the hell it is that they’re into. But for me, that’s never been an easy task. I’ve always been incredibly shy. I’ve also learned to out-muscle that shyness and put myself in heart-pounding situations that seem so simple for the socially apt. I wouldn’t say I was socially challenged, but I have my days where all I want to do is curl up and forget that anyone else exists in the world.

But those are becoming less and less common.

Part of that for me is having a reason to have fun out there. I’m not going to actively pursue conversation with random strangers, but it seems to happen more and more of late. It helps that someone dear to me was thoughtful enough to get me the best early Christmas gift ever. Nikon is the name of the new love of my life.

I know I have waxed pretty about the New York City. I like to write posts where I explain what it is that I see when I walk down these streets.

But sometimes, words just won’t do it.

Now I’ve been given an opportunity to show you some of what I truly see.

I hope you enjoy it.

I’m sort of relearning Christmas in New York. Some would argue that it’s been blunted by the effects of Hurricane Sandy and the Presidential Election. Who am I to argue? I’m too busy noting how beautiful New York is at this time of year.

Working on chapter 11

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on 11/28/2012 by Angel D. Vargas

I kid you not when I say that working on four major projects at once is a daunting task. Only writing could ever make me work that hard or be this rewarding.

 

Speaking of my writing, Unbreakable, chapters oneten has done fairly well in the rankings, but I am not yet among the top thirty. While my determination says that this serial is bound to be a success no matter the votes, the reality is I still need a fair fan base voting on my serial in order for it to continue. The editor at Jukepop Serials has been kind enough to remind us of this fact every once in a blue moon, and I for one do not intend to be voted off the island, as it were, by not getting votes.

 

I’ve gotten 60 votes. That’s not bad for something that’s only ten chapters in length. I’ll need more, though. I know you guys are out there. Even your Thanksgiving leftovers are gone, black Friday and Cyber Monday are over (though the deals are still kind of hot), and you’re going to need a break from it all. Those who enjoy horror/paranormal stories should take their goose bump- enjoying, thrill-seeking selves  to Unbreakable and get something out of it. And when you get there and vote on any or all of my chapters, tell your friends and have your friends tell their friends.

 

I wonder if I can hit seventy + votes this week. I’ve got a new chapter coming tomorrow. Let’s see how this goes, shall we? Look forward to this newest installment. It provides some interesting insights into two of my favorite characters ever.

 

Speaking of, it’s time to finish writing chapter 11. Adios for now.
