Need Some Help!

Whoa...

I am currently #9 on Goodreads.com "Best Indie Author" for Solstice while my short "Daddy" is #15, I would love to move on through the ranks. I would love to be in the top 5!

My Daughters Hospital

I like the hospital at night. Some would find if creepy but I find it to be peaceful. Walking down the hallways with hardly anyone running into you, waiting for people to exit the elevators to visit their loved ones and while I feel a calmness in knowing people are getting better for the most part; I know that people will be going into the next life...whatever that may be.

I'm stuck

I have an issue. Well, that may be the understatement of the year. The issues I am talking about is this constant nagging to write and the fact that I can't right now. Let me explain. I can technically write but the problem is that I want to start several things at once but I can't. I have some complex that only allows me to write one novel at a time and this pisses me off.

I can't really complain too much, but when you have a family, work full time, and go to school, starting something new seems to be the last thing I want to do but the only thing I think about doing. It's a conundrum.

Even if I were to, I have a secret project being developed right now, I have the third entry in the "Solstice" series that I need to start at some point but I need a break from that series for a while (the second one hasn't even been approved yet).

I need something to occupy my brain as I have problems sleeping because of it. Most people dream and get their ideas from that. Not me, I am too busy coming up with scenarios in my mind. When a movie trailer comes up in the theater with the dramatic music, I think of something else. Yes, I am inspired by movie trailer music, laugh if you want but the "Prometheus" trailer helped me come up with a majority of "Equinox".

Do I make myself write or is there such a thing for a writer as taking a break?

"Sewer Drains & Lighthouses" Coming Soon

Coming very, very soon...

Life of Pi

Since I am a entertainment buff of sorts, I thought I would do my DVD/Blu-ray pick of the week. I never wrote reviews for movies before so bear with me.

This week my pick is:

Click Here to Buy on Amazon!

I knew going into this film that I would probably see something I would have never had seen before. Director Ang Lee is one of the greats in the film industry and "Life of Pi" establishes that. When looking at the previews, most people just see a boy stranded on a boat with a Bengal tiger and wonder how that is going to be a good movie. It is...

This film is much more than what the trailers tell you. I think this film was so unique that it made it hard for the marketing people to come up with how to sell it. Fortunately, the Academy Award nominations helped the film to recoup its money; it cost about $120 million to make and went to gross $119 million in the U.S. alone according to IMDB.com

Will everyone like this film, probably not, but regardless of what you think about the movie, there is no denying the beauty of it. The underwater scenes are a marvel and the CGI of the animals was the best so far, in my opinion. Keep in mind, I saw the Blu-ray version so the HD quality was spectacular, so great in fact, I needed to plug in a USB port so that the files could be stored for better playback (at least that's how I read the warning when the movie started), the DTS sound mix was superb as well, probably the best in recent memory.

I will not go into any major plot points since that would go into spoiler territory, and some internet troll will complain that I ruined the movie for them (it happens all the time). What I will say is that there are many thematic elements that include love, loss, family, a unlikely friendship, and religion.
I have never been a man of much faith but I have always felt some sort of spirituality and this movie brought it out in me much more so than any other movie, and that is saying something.

Anyone with a mind and a heart will enjoy this film; it is thought provoking at the end and can make the audience think about their own humanity and the potential of goodness in others. While the movie does not completely spell everything out for you at the end, it will leave you debating with others what actually happened in the film and the events within.

Having said that, if you don't want to think about this film and how to interpret it then you probably won't enjoy it. Even if you don't, just enjoy the pretty visuals and the big kitty cat on the boat since I think it stole the show.

This Is New For Me...

Hello! My name is Bryan W. Dull and I write stuff...a lot of stuff, and sometimes they go to peoples Kindles because they are awesome and through some small miracle they like what they buy!

If you do not know about me and what I write at this point, let me explain.

I have a novel called, "Solstice". It's an adult vampire book and its the first part of a planned trilogy. The best part about it is that its actually doing well for a first time author! If you want to read some reviews click on the link above that says "Reviews" (I like to keep it simple).  This was a four year process getting this book published and while I was waiting, I started the second book and guess what? It's done and waiting for approval to publish! I'm a little tired right now...













Then after about of month of my books release I put out a short story called, "Daddy". People like that one too! (Could I be a legitimate writer?) It's only .99 cents and a quick read!

I love film and am big into the gaming industry, so if you hear me talk about anything but my books (and it will be a lot), that will be what I talk about.

Thanks to those who have bought and enjoyed my stories thus far and I hope to hear your thoughts as well.
