Hollywood doesn't know how to write women characters. They either make them too strong or too weak. I'd would have liked this TV show if it was more focused on team work with Superman since they introduced him. But...NOOOOOOO... the writers introduce Superman and then throw him away like trash; we'll probably never see him again.

If Supergirl is to work alone, then why even introduce Superman? I'd rather have Supergirl reach Earth years before Superman and show her develop her powers gradually, becoming stronger each episode, and not make a super suit until she was strong enough to fly. This would make more sense, especially when the cape could be used for slowing her cruising speed!

Also the changing of characters race and sex really irritates me! Hollywood, if you must have a black character, create a unique one, rather than changing Jimmy Olson's race from white to black. And, if you must have a female villain, create a unique one, rather than changing General Zod's sex from male to female. Changing a character's race or sex has always irritated me since that Liberal hack writer Ronald D. Moore changed the original Battlestar Galactic's Starbuck character from male to female. Isn't Starbuck relating to a male deer? This just shows Mr. Moore's ignorance or disrespect for the art of writing.

March of this year, I assumed the position of MIS Manager and inherited a mess of technical issues. Unfortunately, this resulted in not only giving up my Fridays off, which I used for working on my comic book characters and plots, but forced me to work 10 to 20 hours overtime each week. And, since the transfer of responsibilities, I have been frantically tested each day with new technical problems along with politics and it has drained me to the point of exhaustion. Basically, all the extra stress and workload denied me time and energy for website updates as well as writing. There were some days when I almost didn't make it home...I was so tired that I had to call my wife to taxi me home, leaving my car at work.

However, although I still have some technical issues unresolved and I've used most of my budgeted overtime, the Memorial Day weekend allowed me to recover and I will attempt to update the www.treerockcreations.com website with some new artwork as well as continue editing some videos of my opinions, which also have been delayed...so frustrating.

Funny how things work out...since inheriting all this responsibility, my plans on this project have changed. I still plan on creating and releasing a black and white comic book introducing the Queen of Hearts character using a different title and using my own money. Yet, because of the new workload that I inherited, I don't know if it will be this year.

The plan is to get everything stable and once more establish a four ten workweek so that I can take off Fridays and use this extra time to either sleep or work on this project.

I wish I could explain exactly what I must deal with at work, but unfortunately, all I can say is that I have a multiple servers issues and this takes priority over my hobby. Yes, I'm in a constant tug-a-war between my job and hobby and I'm miserable, especially when the characters in my head continue to nag me. At least the Avengers 2 movie allowed me to escape from my own characters. 

Oh, and if you are interested in my opinion of Avengers 2...I thought it was good, yet too crowed with ideas; I wanted more Ultron and I didn't get my wish. Jean Luc Picard (Star Trek: TNG) was right, "wishing doesn't make it so". In my opinion, James Spader should have been given more dialogue and character development. Also, I am pleased that Joss Whedon didn't use shaky cam -- something that irritates me.

I am a computer tech who has been pursuing a professional writer career for more than eight years. Why change professions? To know the answer to that question, you must know that I am very passionate about intellectual TV, Film, and books. In other words, something that provokes thought or teaches morals. This was before TV reality shows flooded the airwaves. Back then, it was easy to escape from reality. Now, I and many others like me must turn off the TV to escape and that is sad. Upset about this fact, I decided to do something about it, rather than complaining about it. After all, I do live in the United States of America; therefore, I have the opportunity to bring the TV, film, and book industry not only a profit, but also a positive impact, which will hopefully place a little art back into the industry.

Since I’m a writer who is striving to turn professional, I’ve tried working full time while writing in my spare time, but it didn’t work out; I needed more time. I tried working part time, but again I needed more time. Frustrated from my lack of progress, I begin writing full time by exhausting my savings and sacrificing my credit. Then, knowing that I was about to lose my house, I gave it up by signing it over to my cousin. Thereafter, I sold all of my furniture in a garage sale along with my car.

Now, having stated that, you must think that I have lost everything. That maybe true from your point of view but not from mine. No one forced me to quit my job, sell my house, furniture, or car. I made the decision to give it up myself, and I don’t blame the president or government for my mishaps nor do I regret any of my past decisions. And I do not need or want your pity.

Although I've sacrificed material objects, I haven't sacrificed my honor or respect for others and frankly, I would rather die than do so. Sometimes a person must give up material things in order to receive blessings from God.

I know I'm going to succeed...I just don't know when.
