Tripping Down the Road to Greatness

November 30, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

The Sunday blog. Like any other bit of writing, on particular days this is a chore. I had a meeting with my editor this week, and we discussed—among many interesting things—the nature of writing, the dedication and time-management needed for the craft.…

Gloriatrix

Our Glorification of Evil

November 23, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

I have a particular inspiration for today’s post, namely, the lovely images commissioned from Mr. Leo Black, which have been added to the gallery. They are another artist’s representation of the grisly trio of schemers from Feast of Fates: Gloriatrix,…

November 16, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Top Ten List of World Class Heroines (In Literature/ Entertainment) Those of you who know me are aware that I have an aversion to weak female leads. I like women who stand up to adversity, who are quick on their feet, and who are strong role models. I…

The Power We Hold

November 9, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Happy Hallows’ Eve

October 26, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Loneliness

October 19, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

You know, I’ve never been one for companionship. I could easily live my life as a bearded recluse in a cabin, so long as all my basic needs—food, water, shelter—were met. At best, I’d need a dog or one-eyed racoon for company. If I wrote Feast of Fates…

Feminism: Why It’s Necessary

October 12, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Today, I’m wrapping up my gratefulness/ how to be a better person series with a few final thoughts. On life, on how we behave, on how we can behave better. I had an interesting week, filled with downs, then ups. I reflected on my politics and beliefs.…

October 5, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Okay, I’ve gone on to great lengths before about the value of being grateful, of saying please and thank you and just generally being kind to the world around you. But talk is cheap. We all like to think of ourselves as nice, accommodating folk. Unfort…
