Star Trek Picard First Official Trailer Released At SDCC 2019!

The first official trailer for Star Trek: Picard has been released at SDCC 2019, and it hits warp speed on every level! I’ve been looking foward to this series ever since it was announced, and the trailer looks awesome! Can’t wait to see Patrick Stewart return as Picard! It has also been confirmed that Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Jonathan del Arco, Brent Spiner and Jeri Ryan will be reprising their roles as Will Riker, Troy, Hugh the Borg, Data, and Seven of Nine.

The trailer is packed with fan pleasing moments, seeing Data and Seven on Nine again was awesome, and I’m sure Star Trek Picard will be well worth the wait.

Engage! Check out the trailer for Star Trek Picard!

The edge of the Universe isn’t the end.

This is another great post from Steph of the Irresponsible Blogger. What lies at the edge of the universe?

What lies at the very end of creation and is it the end? It’s inspiring!

✨The Irresponsible Blogger✨

I’m Mesmerized… Guys this post is a long one but stay with me!!♥️♥️🌹

Ya know what it is for me…I NEED to understand infinite. When we talk INFINITE, forever, never-ending..it triggers the word ‘recycle” in my mind. I immediately begin to ask myself WHERE does our universe end. Through intricate calculations using Astrophysics, Astrologists have determined that there could indeed be an ending to our universe BUT this “ending” would be located no closer than 46 BILLION LIGHT-YEARS from our own galaxy. (I know many Astrologists prefer Parsecs which is basically just working with a larger number of light-years- like 3.26 light-years-but those numbers go way over my head so I stick to the basic “distance of light traveled over a year” light-year)Now we already know that 1 light-year is about 5.9 trillion miles so let’s multiply 46,000,000,000 by 5,900,000,000,000 and what the flip is that number!
Well I’ll be…

🌟I feel you, Being.🌟

This post from the Irresponsible Blogger caught my eye and my mind. There’s some really good thoughts on this about, us as humans, our place in the universe and just how big the universe really is.

Read this and get your mind blown!

While I’m working on some writing at the moment, I just read an interesting little somethin’….I wanted, NEEEEDED, to share it with you all because well, WOW!

Here ya go!

-If you were to gather every single pebble of sand from every single beach in the world and count them- the number of galaxies in the universe would still outnumber the sand pebbles.

Our tiny Milky Way Galaxy is just one single pebble of sand.-

Wha-wha-WHAT!!!!!!!!

mind blow wow GIF

Well now my mind is spinning and going and I’m thinking all crazy, wonderin’ if parallel world’s exist, and if things like deja Vu, weird moments of clarity, etc., are actually more like a connection to another life form in a far away place. Us tapping into a frequency of living that is unseen TO US but nonetheless existing.👽

I love this possibility. I love the wonder. But gosh I hate missing out. I…

How to make a fantasy map with GIMP

A great post from Rebecca on using Gimp to create fantasy maps.

Rebecca Alasdair

Capture

At the end of September, I put up online a map (see below) I had created for my WIP fantasy series Graceborn. I was touched by everyone’s enthusiasm for my map, and I received a LOAD of questions about how I made it! So here it is—the post I promised on how to make a map like mine.

First off, a preliminary note: the program I used is called GIMP (more details below). This post is not a step-by-step guide on how to use GIMP, because there are WAY better sources of information out there on that. I have included one such video tutorial in this post, which I relied upon heavily while creating my map, and you might find useful. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this, and I’d love to hear from you if you make your own fantasy maps!!

Good day to you! If you’ve missed out on the announcement, the BlogBattle is back! Yes, yes it is. And now is the time to write your story for October so everyone can read and enjoy it throughout the month and in the future.

And here is this month’s word:

Cave

Of course, the best place to connect and get dialed in for the battles is at our BlogBattlers WordPress Blog: https://blogbattlers.wordpress.com/2018/10/02/cave/ where you’ll meet some of the other writers, have access to links to past stories and see the current word for each month.

I procrastinated last month (I’m going to blame it on the beginning of school for my kids and all the added chaos of afterschool activities. ;)) and didn’t get a story written, which is super sad! So, my advice is to spend this week writing your story! Next week on Tuesday we’ll start posting links…

Four years ago, I join a creative writing class and started my first novel. Back then, I would never have imagined myself as a blogger, of having a platform of this scale, and I certainly didn’t see myself as being an author.

I would have blushed and mumbled that I was taking a writing class, whilst secretly writing a book. And in private I would aspire about being an author.

The Magicians - Quentin meme

If this is where you are, stop! You’re not aspiring to anything… if you write, you’re a writer. It takes blood, (probably from a paper cut, but still) sweat and tears to pour your heart and soul into your work. It takes dedication and sacrifice, to set aside time to write away from family and work commitments.

It deserves acknowledgment, and not from an outside source:

Oh, when I get good feedback I’ll feel successful – no you won’t.
But…

Ari was kind enough to let me guest post on her blog. I chose to write about the power of simple writing and how this can add impact to any written work.

Thanks again Ari 😀

Introducing Parallel Magic: The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Show

Kate M Colby has created the Parallel Magic podcast, so for all of those into Scifi and dark fantasy reading this is something you should look into!

~S

Kate M. Colby

If you read my January update or follow me on social media, you’ve probably caught the unofficial announcements… but now, I’m pleased to officially introduce Parallel Magic: The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Show.

Parallel Magic PodcastIn this podcast, Jonas Lee (my friend and fellow author) and I discuss science fiction and fantasy novels over a drink. We started the show to create a virtual book club, where sci-fi/fantasy readers from around the world could chat about the books we love while enjoying the simple camaraderie of a drink (alcohol optional, of course!).

Thus far, we’ve aired two episodes. The first dives into Scythe by Neal Shusterman, along with all the existential crises a book about (im)mortality can bring. The second episode, which aired today, covers Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, as well as my first embarrassing Champagne pop, epic space battles, and the book’s brain-blowing (and not-so-brain-blowing twists).

Interested?

Keep Track of Your Conversations in One Place

Hi there all, I just found out that WordPress have put in a nive new conversations feature where we can see all of our conversations in one place!

Have a look!

Simon 🙂

The WordPress.com Blog

Today, we’re introducing Conversations: a tool in the Reader that makes it easier for you to monitor and participate in the discussions you care about the most.

Let’s face it: it can be hard to keep track of all the conversations you take part in online. When your favorite posts generate an active discussion, you might miss out on some meaningful exchanges. To find out if a post has new comments, you would have to manually search for it in your stream, or enable comment emails, which would then fill your inbox with every single comment coming from that post.

With the new Conversations page, new comments on your followed posts on any WordPress.com or Jetpack-connected sites will all appear in a single stream, including for sites you don’t follow. You’ll now be able to read and add your replies without having to leave the Reader!
