Weekly Wanna Watch List

JUSTICE LEAGUE 

As a DC fan i have to say I’m a little excited about this. Much like what The Avengers did for Marvel; Justice League should solidify the franchise and spawn a truckload of sequels. Super excited,  I’m disappointed Superman won’t be featured though.

THOR:RAGNAROK

The Thor movies always come out around my bday. So of course I’ll be spending this one at the theatre watching!

DEATHNOTE

As a fan of the manga and the anime, I’m excited to see a movie about the series. Looking forward to see how this plays out.

MY FRIEND DAHMER

I have a weird fascination with serial killers. The fact that there is a movie coming out about Dahmer as a teenager is intriguing.

Harvey Parker – Throwing Stones

Fan Fiction of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Book 1

Harvey Parker is an orphan who managed to be the only known survivor of known serial killer and mad man, Timio Rydell also known as Lord Vektor. Whose mission in life was to cause anarchy by murdering elected officials and their families. Jeffrey Parker who worked for the FBI criminal task force  and Laura Parker a US diplomat were in the witness protection program hearing reports the Rydell had recently been able to locate, torture and poison Frederick and Alicia Lordano also from the FBI criminal task force.

Timio abandoned by his father, born of a gypsy woman who sold fortunes among other things. Had been on a rampage for 6 months.  During a night high on opiates and other narcotics, he’d overheard a tale from one of the many vagrants living in his run down flat. Words slurring barely keeping her eyes open Maura, a haggard toothless wench and fellow addict lay in a heap of old dirty laundry they’d piled in the corner. Greasy fingers smearing ash into the peeling wallpaper; she told a story that would see Tim live in infamy, only to be stopped by the likes of a small boy.

The grandiose story played to his psychosis, and thus started a hunt for a special child. A child born to parents of the Fed’s. A child who’d bring his downfall.

Rydell had come to understand that the establishment around him would not allow for him to rise through their ranks traditionally. A man with his dark past would not be able to waltz into congress. He’d have to initiate a hostile takeover.

A failed attempt which saw the murders of Laura and Jeffrey, the disappearance of Fred and Alicia and an extraordinary chain of events resting on the shoulders of young Harvey. The Boy who’d bested a serial killer.

Clearing Your Writing To Do List 

We’ve all heard the age old saying, “Writer’s Write” but unless you’ve already arrived you’re probably trying to find a way to be a writerly writer whilst balancing a full time job, family and dare I say it sustaining friendships? It’s not always easy to find your groove and some days your Muse is taking a nap. I get it and this article is chocked full of the pot and kettle schtick today because i too struggle with setting time aside for my craft. We’re gonna jump right in anyway and attempt to glean some insight on how so many other people have “managed to do it”.


When I worked in sales on this super peppy pyramid team they’d advised us to set goals that we’d wanted to achieve that year. At the top of my list was find a better job which i was able to do, but my better job has never been the job I wanted. I want to be a famous author, fund literacy programs and make millions off of my shows and books without having to leave my bedroom. Instead I work at a call center, and spend my days trying to cram writing spurts in between phone calls.


It’s daunting at times, but writer’s write. So even on days when you’ve stared at the same line for the past 20 minutes and all you’ve added was a comma remember that you at least took time to sharpen the blade that is your writing skill. For all other days, there’s a wonderful thing to be said about goal setting. I personally am always proud of myself when I get to scracth another task off my list.


To get started let’s use the S.M.A.R.T. goal setting model. Because it’s the easiest to track. Writer’s goals like all other life goals should be measured based on Specific tasks, that are Measurable in nature, reasonably Attainable, Relevant to achieving an overall goal, and Time – Bound to ensure it can be completed.  I’ve used this method in planning for other aspects of my life but this will be the first time modifying it for my writing needs.

For the sake of keeping busy i attempt to plot out 3 main objectives I’d like to accomplish, breaking them down into the SMART goal format just ensures i get them done. For the purposes of this post, i’ll be mapping out 3 objectives for the Blu Moon Fiction blog.

Secret Life of the American Teenager 

When it first aired I too was sold on the great Molly Ringwald’s return. If seen Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. Secret Life was one of those shows that I caught just before college. 

Basic premise is Amy is a high school freshman who finds out the hot bad boy she banged in band camp got het pregnant.  Along with normal social issues, Secret Life explores Amy’s life as eldest daughter, expectant mother all while dealing with the struggles of maneuvering high school.

I gotta be honest here, I don’t know who’s secret life this is but I feel terribly sorry for them and the townies that surround them.

After a series of partner swaps and questionable plot twists my senior year Netflix binge fizzled during the 4th season premiere. What was once ABC family offered both and entertaining yet loosely family focused program that sometimes teetered on x-rated. 

These kids got more tail than I did during my senior year of college. Any who I found myself having mushy drama overload and quit watching before the series finale.

I recently rediscovered Secret Life and jumped right back in where I left off. Turns out Ben, spiraled after Amy and Ricky got back together and unfortunately as of Season 5 episode 10 he was still waiting for Amy and Ricky to split up even if he had to wait until they were geriatric. 

There’s a new girl in school who gets to be pregnant and we get to see history repeat itself while a new young guy tries to save the young mother.

Where am I now?

Molly Ringwald, “Amy’s Mom” is a lesbian, Amy and Ricky are pretending to have eloped while their families plan a large wedding. Ben is semi stalking her whilst having also ran through the graduating class. Ricky, Jack and Adrian are all attending the same college.

For some reason there was a pimp roaming campus who beat up Jack. We’ll see how this works.

What We’re Reading: July – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone 20th Anniversary!

Anyone born after the 90s is well aware of the Harry Potter series and it’s ability to bring something as nerdy as magic wands and spectacles to mainstream popculture.

It started with a single book and spawned into a franchise worth billions. J.K. Rowling as a result has managed to go from living a life of homelessneed as a single mom to heading a global fantasy empire.

July’s book of the month is our tribute to the students of Hogwarts whom we’ve grown to know and love.

The X-Men: Gifted

Saw a commercial for a new show called, “The Gifted”  apparently it’s  Marvels second attempt at a tv show to expand the X-Men franchise. So far the only actor i recognize is Coby Bell, Jason Pitts from “The Game” which makes me want to watch.  The show follows what happens when two “ordinary” parents take their family on the run from the government when they discover that their children have mutant abilities, and join an underground community of mutants who have to fight to survive. Maybe i’ll add this to my fall program schedule, “The Gifted” airs on Fox on October 2, 2017.
