Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

The Calling Card!





Clean.

Everything always had to be excessively clean.

Andrew Williamson washed his hands for the 3rd time. Just as he'd cleaned his kitchen three times, and locked the door three times.

What the small studio apartment lacked in furnishings and comforts, it made up for in it's immaculate form. One could easily eat off of any surface in the house.

Visitors were not welcome.

Visitors touched things. Pens were left on the counter instead of the pen holder. Sticky Notes were moved 1/3 of an inch. No.... visitors were not welcome.

Andrew was precise.

Which is what made him such a keen observer, and why hacking was a perfect fit. His code was clean, pure, and elegant. Most coders were sloppy, and that's how he got in most of the time. He could spot their mess, and see right through it.

He sat down in the white porcelain chair (easier to keep clean), in his white Kung Fu style clothing (relaxed, efficient), to type on his white MacBook Pro (only the best will do).

Andrew's fingers danced across the keyboard like a concert pianist. In moments he was through the firewall and into the main server.

He closed his laptop and smiled, thinking how funny it would be when all the employees at Stouts Inc. helplessly watched Annoying Orange make fun of them for an hour as they tried to shut down and reboot the system's firewalls. At which point his virus would take it's full control over the system, disappearing from their detection and silently sending him a stream of data.

Phase 1, complete. Phase 2, collect his paycheck from the man who hired him. Ronald Greenhorn. He tried to warn the board that they were vulnerable. Rather than suffer a real attack with real losses, he hired Andrew to show them just how bad it could be. Only one week ago, he'd received the invitation. He could not pass up the chance to hack his childhood toy manufacturer.

Andrew called Greenhorn, but there was no answer. He must be busy with the chaos. The television showed nothing interesting, another bombing. Same news.

Except... wait. What?

"Ronald Greenhorn, Chief Technology Officer at Stouts Inc., was found dead last night in his corporate suite. Coroners believe he died three weeks ago, but the suite had been empty. The Cleaning Crew, returning after a holiday break found him during the pre-shift cleaning.
Detectives were still sussing out answers when a virus took over the facilities computer systems. The FBI has been called in to lead the investigation, as they believe both incidents are related."

The Calling Card!

It was always part of his hacks, especially when he was hired by the company he was hacking. It was his way of achieving credit, and payment.

Breath constricted, pulse increased, dizziness set in... he could feel his skin becoming balmy as his fingers grew cold.

He was loosing control, he could not lose control.

He'd been set up, framed, and involved in something he'd never asked for. He never actually met Mr. Greenhorn, only connected through other contacts. But now it was obvious that he had never been hired by him at all.

He closed his eyes, took several deep breaths, and focused his mind. One thing about having a meticulous mind, was ensuring that plans were always kept meticulously in the mind, never on paper or servers for people to locate.

Andrew took his laptop, wiped down the apartment for prints, hair, anything that would tell his ID. He left, locking the door three times, and walked down the hall.

Failsafe engaged.

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

A little ditty I was singing in the kitchen...

I can't recall the words to...

This song that's stuck in my head...

I must know the words, to this stupid song, or I can't go to bed...

It's the Circle of Life...

Oh yeah, that's right, the Lion King...

It's Elton John... At the height of his career...

Good Night!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
