Walter Elias Vanderbilt / Darkmater (Moriarty)

Character’s Name: Elias Vanderbilt / Dark Elf

Elias Vanderbilt was a trust fund kid, who flunked out of MIT. But not for lack of ability. He was a member of the Center for Brains Minds & Machines (CBMM), and Master of Science (M.Sci.) graduate student majoring in Integrative Research on Intelligence. He was working on a project to map the code required to duplicate aspects of the human mind. Specifically, those that relate to the phenomenon of what are called spiritual experiences.

One day, the he just disappeared for weeks. When he comes back to school, he doesn't know where he has been, and he's acting strangely. Then he disappears again, this time (as far as his fellow students are concerned) he's missing for good.

Actually, he's been operating underground under the hacker alias "Dark Elf". He's been coding programs for nefarious purposes, and making a decent living doing so. He blacks out for long periods, and when he comes back to himself, he has inspirational ideas for new code and programs, which he sells on the Hacker Black-Market.

During those periods of black out he's come to a realization… he could make the biggest sale of his life by creating a program to detect terrorist attacks. He's already built it, and tried to sell it to Military Technology Companies and the Government. But he can't even get an audience. So he's decided to use his ability to hide his digital footprint, to recruit terrorists to plant a bomb at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This way, there will be an instant market for his program, and bidders to buy it from the best of the best agencies around the world.

He's so sure that he's hidden his digital foot print, and that nobody will ever discover he was the one who master minded the attack… but he's unaware that he himself, is just a tool of the test he was subjected to. There are those who can stop him. And they are coming…

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…

Eradicate the word "had" from your writing.

I have been writing for years, first as a hobbiest with passing intrest, then semi-professionally as a blogger, then professionally as a Complaints Reporter and Letter Writers, and now as Technical Writer working on Policy & Procedure (P&P). In that time, I've had the opportunity to edit other's work even more often than my own.

Had is an easy way to clean up your manuscriptAmong the most common pitfalls I've seen, in both Nonfiction and Fiction writing, is the word "HAD". You can almost always simply delete it, and it the sentence will not only remain fully intact, but the meaning will be clearer.

I notice it in my writing, in my Letter Writers, and I've seen it three times today in other authors at Scribophile. Below are the works I critiqued/edited today.

Both are examples of good storytelling and world building. Both have edit issues to work out to be ready for publishing.

Both are examples of how incomplete craft (my own included) can be overcoming b…

The Great Divide: Light VS Darkness

The Great Divide: I know, I know... don't get in a debate on a website... I know I shouldn't but I do anyway sometimes. It's like casting pearl before swine... but at the same time, MAYBE someone else will benefit from seeing at least ONE person in the room make sense. So I did it. I had a debate in a comment thread on a science site. However...
As I look back at that comment thread that took place on a science site I am reminded of the great divide. As this world get's near it's end, the coming of Jesus, and the great tribulation... We are seeing a draw down of beliefs. Did you know atheism isn't the main enemy thought/teaching that the bible is concerned about. Atheism has no grounding in reality, so it can't hold very long. Scientists, serious scientists, are starting to look beyond atheism to pantheism, and other religious beliefs. They are even turning to alien worship and "channeling", which means talking to aliens through meditation and allow…

Topic: No More Facebook... for 28 days or more?

I Deactivated Facebook... for 28 days.
I'm not sure why yet.
I wasn't using it much, and when I did I found it distracting, in a non-productive way. I left Twitter up for now, and Google+ is so pervasive that I'd have to delete ALL my Google activity/accounts in order to walk away from it.

Deactivating is not the same as Deleting, that would be permanent. I set Facebook to auto-reactivate in 28 days. I want to run this as an experiment. Can I make it 28 days without Facebook? I think so. I may come back. I'm not sure yet.

What could I accomplish in the next 28 days? Write a new book? Publish some new posts? Work overtime at my job? I don't know. I'd like this to be more purposeful.
28 days from Dec 27, 2014Want to figure out the date that is exactly twenty-eight days from Dec 27, 2014 without counting?
Your starting date is December 27, 2014 so that means that 28 days later would be January 24, 2015.
You can check this by using the date difference calculator to meas…
