Propaganda - Enemy of Fiction
The Enemy of Good Fiction

Many people have asked me, "Why don't you watch TV anymore?"
I do, sort of. I play movies that I buy and rent on my TV regularly. However, I Don't watch cable TV or local TV, and I NEVER watch sitcoms or Reality TV of any kind. If I want the news, I go to the internet.
Why Not? Because there's too much Programming going on in those programs, and not one drop of Reality in Reality TV -- especially the Law & Order ones.
TV = The Tool of Propaganda
By Phil Cunningham

Posted WITH Permission.)
Propaganda and Advertising, affects us all. The two operate using the exact same techniques, so it can be very difficult to recognize one from the other. The only major difference between the two is that advertising sells Products, while propaganda sells IDEALS.
Increasingly, the corporate advertising of goods and services is being coupled with political, "moral", and religious value messages - Propaganda.

Things are slowly coming together. They still aren't the best, but the chaos of earlier weeks is starting to settle down. I couldn't afford professional piano movers, but my brother-in-law is willing to help, so I have that. My birthday was earlier this week, and that was nice: my boyfriend had a hardbound book made of the written roleplays we've done for his D&D campaign (labelled volume one, as it's not even all of our stories and it's already more than 650 pages long), for which his sister did a fantastic cover illustration. It has to be my favorite gift. He also got me a cute pair of socks, but that book was such a thoughtful, unique gift. My mom and my stepdad got me a Visa gift card and a bouquet of flowers. I haven't seen my dad in years, and I got to talk to him for over an hour on my birthday. All around, things were pretty good.

I'm feeling my creativity come back (as shown by the map I recently uploaded), and less panicked. I just hope that things eventually start to get easier.

Nothing much to say here, except that I'm an aspiring novelist with one book in the editing phase and the next about to begin. Working two jobs to get by and squeezing in writing and art in between.
