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.

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.

Research: Erase Hard Drive/ Thumb Drive

2: DegaussingHard drives are nothing more than bottles of data held in place by magnetic glue. By removing the magnetic glue, you can create a breakdown of the underlying bits and bytes and scramble them in a way that's pretty tough to recover from. If the degaussing device used is good enough, you'll destroy all of the bits and bytes at the user level as well as the low-level formatting that makes it function as a drive. (If you're serious about data security, you'll use a powerful degausser.)
Although degaussing might be looked at as a way of simply erasing a drive, it's actually a destructive mechanism, though it's not nearly as fun to watch as a shredder.
Powerful degaussers will also render inoperable a drives servo motors and will damage the spindle motor of the drive. It truly is a paperweight when you're done.
A really good degausser is expensive, but it doesn't cost as much as a really good shredder, and it might be enough for your needs. Also, it…

Shots in the dark...

For the first time since my wife passed, June 25, 2018, I've decided to start writing again. Not sure if this will make it into the final cut of the novel I'm working on (Distortion, a White Noise series), but I thought I'd share the rough draft of my first words back.

***
Wet hail assaulted the thin metal roof of the RV like a barrage of weapons fire. Ash sat on the floor, back against the couch, dripping red water onto the floor, a mix of his own from a rough patch and hers... His mind was black as the room, his thoughts hidden from himself like the storm had hidden the stars.

Like the random hits of blue lightning outside the windows, images flashed through his mind of the night's events. What he could have done differently. What he could have done to prevent it. Every plan had been stunted, but they persevered, until the end. He kept coming up blank. Every alternative could have ended them here. He was lost. Blank. Mind racing on a track with no destination.

He was…

First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…
