You’ve stumbled upon Typewriter Monkey Task Force: a blog about faith, writing, video games, literature, television, movies, life, the universe, and everything. I worked on it for more than five years, and though TMTF has ended, hundreds of posts remain. I’m sure the blog is a bit daunting to navigate.
Don’t panic. I’m here to help.
If you haven’t already been there, this blog’s About page is a great place to start!
Some of TMTF’s posts are better than others. Below are links to a few of this blog’s best posts, separated by broad categories:
- I reflected upon my Christian faith, writing posts about the silence of God and my own struggles to believe.
- I discussed writing and storytelling, from the importance of diverse representation to why Christians are often the bad guys.
- I worked on my own story project, from its crushing failure to its hopeful resurrection.
- I geeked out over video games, wondering whether games can be art and why video game movies suck.
- I wrote about movies and television, learning life lessons from Doctor Who and Steven Universe.
- I explored the wide world of literature, from great opening lines to the lesson Dante’s Inferno taught me about hopeless crushes.
- I remembered some of my own adventures, from That Time I Was Trapped in a Stage Kiss to That Time I Held a Severed Human Arm.
- I got a little personal, sharing personal struggles such as depression and low self-esteem.
- I rambled about random nonsense, from sandwiches to Internet error messages.
- I made a bunch of top ten lists, listing everything from dragons to detectives, because I couldn’t help myself.
While writing this blog, I also invented a holiday, Be Nice to Someone on the Internet Day, which is celebrated every year on March 4 by approximately one or two people.
I also wrote some fiction. (It’s a bad habit.) My best short stories are probably “A Portrait of the Artist as a Performing Monkey” and its sequel, “Romeo and Juliet and Dave.” I’m fairly satisfied with “The Mark of Cain” and “The Field Where No Flowers Grow,” too.
