In April I did an interview for a local magazine. I was soooooooooooooo excited. I told everyone. It being in a local paper I thought was awesome, and it is, for your name gets out in your area. May, the first week of May was when it was supposed to come out. The first week came and went and I was not able to find the magazine. Contacting the editor she directed me to where she knew some had been dropped off. YAY!

I celebrated to early. Upon finding the magazine I scanned through it, I didn’t see me. I scanned again. I didn’t see me. That is when I knew I had not been included. That was a let down feeling of a mini epic proportion. I did noticed they had only included one writer apart from the main article they had written. That gave me a small bit of, okay it’s not just me. But that was still a let down.

As I wrote on FB my revelation of not being in the paper I hash-tagged #Notstoppingme and it won’t. As one friend tried to cheer me up she said, “They left out the best part.”

And in a blink of that happening I was asked to present myself to the 1 Million Cup group in town and became a member of a professional women’s group in town whose goal it is to help each other out. Things got better and got better fast.

Don’t let little bumps in the road stop you. Find a way to go around it.

About the author:

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it’s only fair to say that CP Bialois isn’t my real name. It’s a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I’m just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves.

For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them.

I’d write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I’d just daydream about what I’d see myself as the hero of course. You can’t have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It’s just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick.

As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I’d read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics.

I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading “the cat fell down” really didn’t interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we’d go out he’d always spring for a couple of comic books for me.

While it wasn’t exactly the perfect beginning everything I’ve ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I’d like to share some of the ideas I’ve had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they’re always fun to write and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.

 

A conversation with my current WIP

2014-04-28 11.52.25

After a few months of not writing due to life and obligations I finally was able to get to my WIP. This is the conversation we had.

#‎Writingagain‬ ‪#‎LostFaith‬ ‪#‎Letthegoodtimesroll‬


Me: Well hello Lost Faith, guess who’s ready to get back to work?
LF: Who are you?
Me: Oh come on now it has not been that long. I had things that had to be done and family to help.
LF: I know I know. But it wouldn’t have hurt to stop and say hi. Heck you walked by me for the past two months with not even a howdy do.
Me: My bad. I’m sorry. That was wrong. But I am back now for us to work together again.
LF: I understand. Family is family. So where will we start?
Me: I’m not sure, there are so many places I need to fix and figure out.
LF: Well you need to add more dialogue to me, fix the loop holes, describe better the location and…. wait I know where!
Me: Where?
LF: The killing of one of the main characters. You’re still gonna do that, right? Start there. It will be so much fun it will be your first time. I decree we start there.
Me:
Oh you decree?
LF: Yes.
Me: I will get to that I promise but I need to bulk some areas up. You know you are going to be a trilogy.
LF: Hooray for Hollywood lalalalalala Hollywood. Yes you need to do that, I will look awesome on the big screen. Awesome I tell you.
Me: Yes you will.
LF: And Sharon? I really missed you.
Me: I missed you as well. Let’s get started.

My current WIP is a sassy thing. But I do love her.
