Why should you listen to me?

In 2005, I was homeless. I lived in a van in Long Beach California while my wife and 1-year old lived with a friend. Eventually, they moved into the van with me. I was working, but under-employed. I realized I wasn't "winning" with money.

That led me on a journey.

I started working in the banking and finance world, talking with millionaires, business owners, and professionals. Since then, I've taken over 100,000 phone calls working with people on their money problems and worked as a Loan Originator, Loan Analyst, and Business Banker.

It was during this time that I realized I wanted to be a writer. The seeds planted by my College English Professor took root, and I picked up blogging in 2008. I self-published a non-fiction book in 2010. I started studying the craft of creative writing and as of today (04/22/2018), I'm working on my first novel, Distortion.

While Discovering my place in this world, I learned that I excel at one thing above all else: "Information". I'm a knowledge hoarder. I have an ability to absorb information much more rapidly than my peers and reproduce that information in the form of actions and lessons other can follow. Within 3 months of any job I've ever started, I become the resident systems, policy, and procedure expert.

Creative Writing: One writer reached out to me on Facebook Messenger because he was stuck with his story. I gave him some insights, and I'm excited to see where he goes with it from here. Here's what he had to say:



Technical Writing: I've been a Technical Writer for a Fortune 500 company writing policy and procedure manuals, an editor for the weekly company newsletter, and a Complaints Analyst writing detailed reports for an executive committee. 

Publishing: My first book, Banking Basics for Believers, was published in 2010. It's got a ton of great information in there, but I was new at the time, so it's honestly not well done. Knowing what I know now, I would re-organize the information, edit more in, add a few things, and get a better cover. But it was a start on this journey. I'm now working on my first novel, I've learned a ton more about self-publishing and formatting the documents.

Spreadsheets / Excel: When I first arrived at a new job, I found them manually entering data into Excel. I showed them how to import that data with a few easy clicks and automate the reporting, adding auto formatting. 


Support this site via Patreon

Okay, confession time. I hate asking for things. I don't like negotiating with car salesmen, and much to my wife's chagrin (I'll buy you another copy, honey) I keep giving and giving and giving things away. I will devote hours to give people the time, attention, materials, or answers they need.

While that's great, I need to eat, pay bills, and spend time with my family. Patreon may be one avenue to do just that. If you've benefited from my craft or knowledge and you'd like to support me, consider becoming a patron of DarrellWolfe.com.

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

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…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…
