We’re back! And that’s a wonderful thing. I love doing these and I think in the future I will be doing them on YouTube (too?), but that requires adherence to a schedule that I do not yet have the discipline for. Featuring writers has become a guilty pleasure of mine and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you would like to be featured on my website please fill out the form on the last page of this post!
Anyway, today I want to talk to you about an individual who single-handedly held my banner on YouTube through the worst of my videos with encouraging comments and persistent out-of-the-starship thinking. He is a writer who’s five letter name is a combination of his father’s and mother’s, and for that he’s always found luck in the number five.
Lu Mar, from what I’ve seen, specializes in experimenting with ideas and concepts that come to him through conversation, like in the example below. But he also writes traditional work from poetry to stories about space aliens helping us fight the commies. Essentially his writing is random and when discussing his writing he says: “I take past experiences that I hear others talk about and things that I have experienced and add the spice of dialogue.”
He is a part of a senior writers group with people who mostly write what he refers to as “legacy work”. While I know that being within a community of writers makes writing more enjoyable, I could see why Lu Mar turns to the internet to expand his outreach in the writing world. While I don’t know how he feels, I know that I would feel a little lonely in a group of writers focused on something that I myself don’t have much interest in.
My favorite thing about Lu Mar though, is seeing him in my YouTube comment section. He seems to take the time to comment on work with a deep thought tangent that gives you pause. Here’s an example from one of my videos:
The title I have for him, the Brevity Bell (taken from his website), is actually emblematic of his character online. The definition of Brevity meaning “concise and exact use of words or speech”, he appears to take this to heart and talk about the meaning of what you said in a video or article and its subjective qualities. He really makes you stop and wonder if the message you give is exactly what you wanted to say, which I think is invaluable in the creative fields.
As a Psychology major and a wannabe writer, I have a heavy interest in how it is other people view things subjectively given exposure to ideas and concepts that they like to explore. So you may be able to see why I could appreciate someone like him in my comments section.
But without too much more of my ranting- go see his work! Go on to the next page!!!
