Started this weeks new batch of pages for Cities That Eat Islands. Down to the last part and all that leads to the climax. Ka-ching. I imagine there will be a lot of tweaking.
Started Mark Miller’s Hellraiser: The Toll. A novella that’s placed between Barker’s novella and his novel the Scarlet Gospels. So far so good.
Still amazes me how there are many people out there obsessed with media and how the same people are telling others not to believe in the media. Not to let it control you.
“Media controlled person who then tells other person not to let media control you.”
I may have born with a brain unlike neuro-typicals but this just does not make sense to me. If you can explain it then please leave one in the comments.
Media, the news, is important to me besides in a professional position. It informs me of the world. The past and the present so I can better move into the future. I use it to filter through the many sides of reality to come to my own conclusion of the truth.
Truth = What we read + What people experience + What we experience.
True, media is about click bait and gaining readers. They want to grab you with the headline. I do the same thing. It’s a business. We need to make money. By the way, did you buy my book yet?
But aren’t most adults with an average education able to decipher a piece of journalism between opinion and reporting? Able to tell when someone is trying to lead a reader along to one side or just giving the who, what, when, where, why and how?
The most tragic part is when I see twenty somethings tell teens not to trust the media.
What kind of future will there be?
But then I see said teens blow those twenty somethings away with their convictions, with their truths based on the equation above.
Maybe all will be all right in the world.
