FAQ: What are the most visited pages on this website and how many visits do they get?

Several years ago, I wrote an article on how to write different types of magic uses, or rather how I personally write various types of magic users within the context of my Quaraun books. Today that page is one of my top ten most visited articles. It gets 50 to 500 views/reads/hits/visits per day depending on the time of the years and has had over 200k visits total since it was published.

Amphibious Aliens: Debunking The Atwater Family's Alien Abduction Hoax with more then 30MILLION reads since 2007 and The GoldenEagle: Debunking Stephen King's World's Most Haunted Car Hoax with over tenMILLION reads since 2007 still rank as the two most visited articles on my website, but, neither of those are writing related.

Writing Medieval Servants is my most visited writing related article with over 7MILLION reads.

This website was started in 1996 and has 1 to 3 new articles (all written by me, I am the only writer on this site) published almost daily. In 2017 we crossed ten thousand articles published. As of 2023, EACH article gets MINIMUM 10 to 70 reads PER DAY, with the high traffic articles getting 500+ reads per day.

And since December 2019, my website now gets three hundred thousand to 7 million reads per month - well over ONE HUNDRED MILLION PAGE READS PER YEAR, making it not only the single most trafficked site in the State of Maine, but also one of the most visited websites in ALL OF NEW ENGLAND!

{{{HUGS}}} Thank you to all my readers for making this possible!

The Fainting Trope & Fade To Black Cliche Writing Illnesses Accurately

The Fainting Trope & Fade To Black Cliche Writing Illnesses Accurately

Fainting and "faded to black" cliche from r/writing

The Fainting Trope & Fade To Black Cliche Writing Illnesses Accurately


As someone who has had catalytic seizures in my childhood, PTSD & Agoraphobia in my adulthood, was attacked from behind at college and left paralyzed for 5 months, and has PMDD and suffered 7 miscarriages (all these things resulting in fainting spells) and as a child grew up with high level of abuse, that included among other things being beaten over the head with a shovel, I have very vivid memories of being jolted awake, with absolutely no memory of having fainted.

I am well acquainted with passing out and what it really feels like to experience it, as well as how it is different with different causes. And this is why I write my main character as I do.

Because fainting causes a loss of oxygen to the brain, the person suffers a state of panic, confusion, and momentary loss of memory, so when waking up, do so in a state of jumping up in a sheer panic. Depending on how long they were out, it is possible that they go anywhere from a few minutes to a few days before they remember who they are and who the people with them are. These lapses in memory lose can be truly terrifying for the person, as they can not remember who anyone they are with is, and have a temporary scene of having been abducted/kidnapped. They may try to flee or run away. This is why if a patent starts to have seizures in the hospital, the doctors tie their arms and legs to the bed, as a way to prevent them from leaping up and running out of the room, pulling out all their IVs and such in the process.

Plus every time is different.

For example, in real life, I passed out once because of a pinched nerve in my spine, and the sharp lightning bolt pain that it caused. When I woke up, I remember laying on the floor and telling myself over and over again "Get up!" and I couldn't make my body responde. It was terrifying. When I finally did get up, I couldn't walk, and had to drag myself my grabbing hold of furniture and pulling myself along until I reached sofa to climb up on. Then it was several hours of my laying there feeling like my head had floated off into another room and left me behind. It was a full 3 months before I recovered from this and was able to walk again.

Another time, I had a broken hip, and I passed out from the pain... that time, my body went full on flush every thing at the same time, so in addition to passing out, I also vomited, pissed, and diarrhea, all at the same time. While passing out is always a scary experience, that was definitely my LEAST fun experience with passing out. :(

Another time I passed out, because the linoleum floor was wet and I slipped and fell backwards slamming my head on the floor. When I woke up, I had a splitting headache that lasted for several days and left me unable to walk steady for well over a week.

In books (and movies) you often see a character pass out, then get back up and continue on as normal. I've passed out dozens of times in the last 50 years and never once have I ever been able to just get up and act like: "Oh look, I fainted, ha ha, now where were we?" At best it'd be a few hours before I gained my bearings again, and at worst it was a week or more before I could function again.

I think far too many writers, write a character fainting, without really realizing how serious a medical condition, the act of fainting really is. Even if a person faints from being scared (as is often the case on Horror books and movies), that person still has suffered a brief period of no oxygen to the brain, and they are NOT gonna just jump up and continue running from Big Bad.

Another thing is time... depending on how bad the person is injured, they may not wake up for hours or even days, but in fiction it's always BOOM unconscious then 5 seconds later they are awake again. While there have been a few times that I woke up only seconds or minutes later, in most cases I did not wake up for 3 to 5 hours later, and in one case 3 days later.

And about the whole "fade to black" part. Why I vaguely recall experiencing in, what I usually experience is white not black. It'll be like I'm blind and all I can see is the blinding whiteness of the inside of my skull, or in most cases what happens is, a few seconds before I pass out, black spots start floating in front of me, then they start exploding into giant white snowflake shaped "fireworks" going off inside my head, and suddenly I'm blind, everything is white and then, next thing I know I'm waking up 3 hours later... often in a large pool of blood, another symptom of real world fainting that is often neglected in fiction.

My main character has catalypsies, due to a bad heart. Because of this he faints multiple times a day. It is therefor common for 4 or 5 chapters in each novel to end with him fainting and the next chapter start with him waking up.

Because he is the POV character, the endings of the chapters cut off suddenly, with no warning, and no explanation as to why it stopped. There usually is some signal that he's about to pass out, or at least that he knows he is, and a long time reader of the series would pick up on these cues, but someone new to the series might not. For example, it'll say something like: he paused momentarily, looking around for something to learn on or he stumbled, as the ground seemed to shift beneath his feet, as though the world had suddenly been turned on it's side, knocking him off balance. He doesn't always faint suddenly, often there will be a moment of him becoming dizzy or hyperventilating first. Generally if you see him try to make his way to a chair or bed, you know he knows he's about to pass out. In some cases, if he's with someone who is aware of his condition, he'll turn to that person and try to say something to alert them of what is happening. In any case, because he is the POV character, the chapter ends abruptly the moment he loses consciousness.

The next chapter then begins with him jolted away, suffering a massive panic attack, confused, uncertain where he is or who is with him, and an entire 4 or 5 pages are needed for him to regain his bearings and become fully aware of his situation again. The next chapter, in some cases almost seems to have a different POV character, because his fear levels are peaked and people who are his friends are suddenly seen as his captors. He is never able to get back up and go on with his day as planned. Blacking out is rarely a thing with either minor causes or effects. It is actually a very serious condition that is alerting your body to the fact something is seriously wrong.

This is actually one of the things I get the most questions about from my readers, who tell me this aspect makes the series rather unique, because of the way I handle his fainting spells.

Reader response falls into 2 types:

1: Readers who say: "OMG! That's exactly what it felt like when I passed out!"

2: Readers who say: "WTF? You totally threw me out of the plot. That was so unnecessary! No one in real life faints as often as he does. What was the point of all that?"

Most readers, who comment of this, fall into the 2nd group. It is not uncommon for readers to complain that they do not like this aspect of his character and for them to ask: "Why do you have to have him pass out?"

The fact of it is, the story of every novel is about his every day life and how he struggles with all the things he has to deal with. Living with a health issue like catalypsies is one of the things he has to deal with every day, thus, it's there, even if it may seem to not be "part of the plot" it is part of his life and it deeply affects how he deals with "the plot".

As there are 130+ novels in the series, most readers are familiar with this and realize he has passed out again when the scene cuts short ending the chapter. Though someone new to the series, it may take them a couple of times of encountering this, before they fully realize it's a reoccurring thing that happens to him.

A lot of people get it in their heads that they have to have a disabled character to be "diverse" and then they pick some "popular fad disease" that they have never personally experienced in their life and write it full of in accurate stereotypes. (Autism, PTSD, OCD, and Schizophrenia, for example are all commonly used in novels, but rarely are they written accurately, because rarely does the author actually suffer from it to know what it's like.) I think it would be interesting to see more characters with "less popular" illnesses, by written with more accuracy because it was an illness that the author had actually experienced in real life. Just something as "minor" as a fainting spell, could be written so much better coming from some one who has been there and experienced it themselves. I wish more authors would look to their own health for inspiration when creating characters.

Today is June 11, 2021, and after many years... here's an update to this page:

How to write a character passing out without it being too cliche?

>>>How to write a character passing out without it being too cliche?

>>>One of my characters currently is dealing with some head injuries and passes out as a result. The problem is I'm having trouble coming up with pretty much anything other than 'everything went dark' (or similar cliches.)

>>>Any help/advice would be much appreciated!

>>>This takes place in a 1st person point of view! But any advice on fainting/passing out in general is appreciated!

The problem with: "everything went dark" is that for most people that is not what happens, so saying that, brands the author immediately as someone who has not only never passed out, but also didn't research any of the many medical websites where you can find, hundred, often thousands, of actual patients describing to online doctors what they saw and what happened. I can't recall the names of the sites. One was something like WedMD, maybe? But if you look up some medical advice forums, where people can ask doctors for help, and search for "passing out" or "fainting spells" you should be able to find lots of descriptions written by patients on what happens to them.

It seems to be different for different people and even different with different causes for the same person. For me, "everything went dark" is not what happens.

I've passed out many times in my life, for various reasons: as a toddler from my uncle beating me in the face with a cinder block brick; from having PMDD (which makes PMS seem like a walk in the park); from having a miscarriage because psychopathic white men think it's fun to kick a pregnant non-white women in the belly until her baby is dead, her spine is broken, her legs are broken, and oh yes, they used metal golf clubs as well, I was paralyzed for 5 months and it took me 18 months to relearn to walk, it's been 8 years, I'm still crippled, can't walk unaided and will never run again; from having a stroke; as well as more normal general reasons such as standing up too quickly after waking up in the morning, having a high fever from the flu, or getting overheated because the ac broke during a heat wave (2 days ago).  

For myself, what you see is a bright blinding whiteness, as though a massive spotlight was just shined in your eyes, along with horrifying pain in your head, and lots of tiny black spots floating around you, then bright burst of colour - like fireworks going off inside your head, and than nothing at all. When you wake up, everything is black because your eyes are closed.

Also, seconds before losing consciousness, there is a weird "floating" sensation. I'm not exactly how to describe it, but it feels sort of like your head is filling up with air and getting ready to pop like an overfilled balloon, and your ears feel like they will "pop" like when you drive up a high mountain road in the car. And at the same time you get really dizzy, really fast, and feels like someone is spinning you around in circles, even though you aren't moving. This entire mix of sensations happens wicked fast, and it happens same time the white spotlight effect starts blinding you. It starts maybe 10 seconds before you pass out, so you don't have time to react.

Also there is this weird, terrifying sensation, of your lungs "freezing up", like they are filling with hot air and you can't breath, and your brain goes into full on panic mode, but again, this all happens same time as everything else, and it happens so fast that you don't even have time to think or react or even realize you are passing out.

Usually when you open your eyes everything is a thick grey fog, all fuzzy and blurry for 10 or 20 seconds before things start yo come back into focus and you can see again. Sometimes though your site is gone for a few hours or even a few days. The time my uncle held me down and pounded me in the face with a brick, breaking my jaw and shattering 7 teeth... I was blind for 3 days after I woke up and to this day am still legally blind in one eye, and nearly blind in the other, my sight never came back.

Also people who faint, tend to faint a lot. And I mean a LOT... a couple times a week to a few times a day. Unless someone just beat the crap out of them and they passed out from traumatic injury, or they gave too much blood, or was sitting on the beach in the sun too long and had heat stroke, most people who faint, do so because they have some kind of medical condition, like a brain tumor or a blood disorder, or something like that.

Lots of illness can cause chronic fainting, so you'd have to do some research into the many various causes of fainting and figure out what it is causing your character to faint if they were not beat up by someone. 

People don't just faint from fright or swooning or any of the things you usually see causing fainting in novels. So, having a character who has never fainted before, suddenly faint because a hot guy walked by or because a friend jumped out of the bushes in gorilla suit to scare them, and than never faint again, is not going to be realistic at all.

People can faint for those reasons, but they'd be people who had a history of fainting because they have severe low blood pressure and resting high heart rate of 121 bpm or higher, so a person who faints when a cute guy says HI to them, probably already fainted 2 or 3 times before breakfast and will faint a few more times before bed.

Also fainting is a SERIOUS medical condition... you can die from it. A lot of people do. I forget the exact number but it's something like 33% of people die when they faint, because no one was around to do CPR.  Fainting is a temporary loss of consciousness because the brain is not receiving enough oxygen. People who faint often also stop breathing when they faint, and if no one is with them, they can die from suffocation before they wake up.

Novels, movies, etc. often make fainting out to be no big deal, but there's a reason doctors go into a panic when a patient passes out - it's because that patient may not wake back up. 

If someone faints, it really is a reason to rush them to the hospital immediately, but the way fainting is usually portrayed in books and movies, it's always made to seem like it's no big deal, and it really is a life threatening big deal.

>>>One of my characters currently is dealing with some head injuries and passes out as a result. 

As your character is dealing with a head injury, you are looking at blood pooling in the skull cavity or even in the brain... meaning he has a concussion, which in itself can be very serious and requires medical attention.

Know that a concussion doesn't go away quickly and can linger for a year or more, some people have effects that stay with them for decades later.

You are talking about actual brain damage here and that's quiet different from just passing out.

You are definitely going to want to do some research into head injuries, particularly concussions, for writing this scene.

If he has a head injury and he's fainting, he really needs to get to a hospital, if hospitals are a thing in your novel.

Even More Pages Which Talk About Character Creation:

Since people often ask which books I recommend to writers, here is a section of books I use when writing my novels.

Books I use when writing novels:

Note, some of these are writing books, but most of them are NOT. These are the references books that I use when writing almost every novel I write. These books are always on my desk and I reference them constantly, daily, over and over again.

And when you see what books I use to write The Quaraun novels with, than you can understand why they are like they are.

As you can see I rarely consult writing books when I want to figure out how to write something. Which is why I'm continually baffled by so many newbie writers who rush to ask other writers how to write.

You think of a thing, then write what you see in your head. It really is that simple. You just write down everything you see.

You do not need writing how to books or advice from authors to figure out how to write the story you want to tell.

Note too that I bought these books new and for cover price and many of them are self published short run books with only 100 to 1,000 copies printed (if you didn't know DnD books were self published and often had only 100 to 1,000 copies published than, you don't your DnD very well) and as such have been out of print for 20+ years and often sell for $500 to $3k+ now today, so, I don't expect you to be able to amass this same collection of 10,000+ DnD books I have, but, you wanted to know which books I use when I write my novels and here they are:

Wondering how authors find publishers?

Writer's Market -  it's a giant 1,000+ page book, costs around $40, is like a yellow pages style phone book directory of every publishing house, magazine, anthology, newspaper, and literary agent currently seeking submissions. There are around 20,000 publishers listed in it.

They come out with a new edition every year, so get the 2018 edition which comes out in a few weeks.

It's not easy to get listed in the Writer's Market. They do a major amount of rigorous filtering, to make sure no scams get in.

The Writer's Market has been the #1 way authors find publishers since the 1940s.

Here's their website:

They have an online directory that is the same as the print book, but it costs around $70 a year to access it.

FAQs: What books do you use to look up English Grammar rules?

You probably won't like this, but I am constantly practicing English Grammar, by daily doing High School Grammar lessons. I diagram 100 sentence a day and have done so since 1996. 

Yes. While you all want the instant quick answer to writing rules, so you skip school and take the easy way out, I go through an entire High School manual in a couple of weeks, and when I get to the end I start over again.

I didn't have the luxury of going to school like you did, so I had no choice but to teach myself. I did the entire ABeka Grammar series starting from Grade 4 to Grade 12, then repeated it starting at Grade 7 to 12, and repeat it from Grade 7 to Grade 12, continually ever since. It takes me about 8 months to complete all 5 years' worth of textbooks. And when I reach the end, I start over again, and when I reach the end again, I start over again.

When I say I constantly practice English Grammar, I mean what I say and I actually practice English Grammar and I find it quiet annoying when school-skipping idiots respond to that by saying: "But I write every day and I never improve."

Did I tell you to write every day? No. I most certainly did not. I told you to practice English Grammar. There's a hell of a big difference.

Practice makes perfect. If you want to perfect your writing skills, you must first perfect your Grammar skills. If you continually write without knowing your errors, you only practice the art of writing errors and perfect the art of writing errors perfectly incorrect.

You will never be a skilled writer if you are not first skilled at Grammar.

Before you can practice writing, you must first practice Grammar.

I've not listed all the books below as there are so many. Each grade consists of a set of books:

   *   The Student Textbook

   *   The Teacher's Manual

   *   A Student WorkBook

   *    A Teacher's WorkBook Answer Key 

   *   A Student Tests and Quizzes Book

   *   A Spelling, Vocabulary, and Poetry Manual

   *   A Teacher's Answer Key For The Spelling Book

   *   A Reading/Literature Student TextBook

   *   The Reading/Literature Teacher's Manual

   *   A Student WorkBook For Reading/Literature

   *    A Teacher's WorkBook Answer Key  For Reading/Literature

   *   A Student Tests and Quizzes Book For Reading/Literature

Each book costs between $40 to $70, average that to $50 x 12 books per grade = around $600 per grade, times 5 grades (Grade 7 to Grade 12) = around $7,200 to buy the entire set of books and complete all 5 years from Grade 7 to Grade 12... so, you'll need to dish out quite a bit of money if you seek to gain the same writing skill I have using the same method I use to practice Grammar.

Do note that ABeka books are considered to be 4 grades ahead of the grade listed. For example, what ABeka book teaches in 4th Grade is what is taught in 8th Grade in Public Schools, while the12th Grade books is a college level. ABeka books are not used in standard public schools, they are used by private schools that specialize in teaching gifted/child prodigies that are too far ahead of their age group to be taught at a normal grade range.

Answering readers' FAQ:
Why is so much of the Quaraun series set in the 1970s & 1980s? Why not set it in current times?

>>>Why is so much of the Quaraun series set in the 1970s & 1980s? Why not set it in current times?

When Quaraun times travels to the future, the story IS SET IN CURRENT TIMES.

The date Quaraun arrives in is ALWAYS the same day that I wrote the scene.

Meaning, if Quaraun ends up in 1978, it's because I wrote that scene in 1978.

Meaning, if Quaraun ends up in 1982, it's because I wrote that scene in 1982.

Meaning, if Quaraun ends up in 1994, it's because I wrote that scene in 1994.

Meaning, if Quaraun ends up in 2013, it's because I wrote that scene in 2013.

MOST of the short stories in the Quaraun series were written between 1982 and 1987, and as Quaraun is ALWAYS in the current time of the date I'm writing, and because I wrote most of those scenes in 1982 to 1987, that means most of the scenes end up set between 1982 to 1987.

FAQs: When you say to read in order to learn what good writing looks like, but than you say don't read anything self published or written in the past 50 years, what than do you suggest I read to learn what good writing looks like?

I recommend 3 things.

   *   1: I recommend the Reading/Literature TextBooks of the ABeka Grammar series that I previously mentioned above. I also recommend reading EVERY PAGE IN ORDER of EVERY volume of the series starting with Grade 4 and ending with Grade 12. (Those books are listed below).

   *   2: WELL WRITTEN classic literature. (Listed in the second column below)

   *   3: American and World History TextBooks. (Listed in the third column below)

   *   4: Science TextBooks. (Listed in the 4th column below)

These are the books I personally read to see/examine how good quality writing looks on the published page and teach myself to improve my own writing by mimicking the writing style seen in the books listed below.

These books are how I taught myself to read and write. I was not allowed to go to school and spent 27 years of my life, since I was 8 years old, locked in a cage, tortured, beaten, and starved.

As an adult I used these books to teach myself as I had no other way to gain an education.

Again, not every book is listed, as there are too many to list them all, but enough are listed to get you started.

   *   1: I recommend the Reading/Literature TextBooks of the ABeka Grammar series

   *   2: WELL WRITTEN classic literature.

A note here... I make it a point to read no fewer than 100 books a year - 2 books a week. Some years I have as many as 300 books by reading a book almost every day. I own more than 300,000 books and have read more then 10,000 of them with a goal to attempt to read them all. As such, I can't even begin to list anything close to all of the books I read. Though I will point out 90% of them were written before 1950 and all of them are hardcover or paperback, not one of my 300k books is an ebook or an audio book. I don't read ebooks nor do I listen to audio books.

   *   3: American and World History TextBooks.

Yes, I DO classify reading History and Geography books as good, quality recommended daily light  reading that should be done in between regular novel and short story reading.

It is my belief that when one ONLY reads fiction, ones view of what is goof writing becomes warped. Thus I recommend reading historical documents, including to go to your local museums to read important documents about your town/state/region. This is especially important if you, like me, write local tales, stories set in your home town/state/region.

This is also why I have such a strong grasp on describing the places Quaraun travels to in the novels I write, without my ever having set foot outside of Maine.

    *   4: Science TextBooks.

Yes. Once again, like with History and Geography, I DO classify reading Science books as good, quality recommended daily light  reading that should be done in between regular novel and short story reading.

I firmly believe that if one does not have a working knowledge of the world around you, not just it's history and geography, but also it's plants, animals, rocks, functions, ad place in the universe, that one will not be able to successfully write descriptions of the world character in your novels live in, because without knowing how your own world exists, how can you even begin to know how to create a fictional world?

As such, I put reading science books as highly important for anyone seeking to write novels.

And again, as I was not allowed to go to school and was locked in a cage from the time I was 8 until I was 31, I did not start studying science until I was an adult, and as such, I started with Grade K5 and went all the way through to Grade 12, doing so in 3 years, so that I could apply for a GED which I got when I was 37. The Science books listed below are the ones I used to do that with, and again mostly by ABeka as I absolutely refuse to use books with frutie tuttie Evolution or Big Bang hocus pocus mumbo jumbo. 

Also, I quickly discovered that as young as 4th grade, vile degradations of sex perversion and utterly disgusting lessons about sex are in Science books published by perverse public school textbook publishers, so I burned them all in the wood stove I will NOT recommend any of the horrifically horrendous, disgustedly perverted sex fill Science books published by non-Christian companies.

It's no wonder the American population has children so perverse and degraded, when they stoop so low as to spend more than 75% of their science textbooks being devoted to the vile disgusting top of sex education. It's utterly deplorable. Sex has no business being in schools. With that kind of filth being taught to children it's no wonder American's gone to shit.

So, I was over on Reddit, you like I often am, and found this question. And answered it, like I do. However, the answer I initially gave was a simple generic answer. If you want to read my original answer unaltered, simply click on Reddit's embed feature links which Reddit provides for webmasters to be able to post their answers on their websites, while linking back to the original thread on Reddit (if you didn't know Reddit offered and encouraged the use of this feature, look for it in the "share" features underneath every post, comment, and reply on Reddit).

I am answering random questions today about world building, over on Reddit and decided to take my answers from there and expand upon them even further over here. So that's what this page is. Me rambling on about various aspects of world building techniques I use when writing the Quaraun series. The questions I am answering are embedded here. Clicking the link in the embedded question will take you to the original Reddit page where you can see the original answer along with other people's answers. If you wish to comment, you can do so on the Reddit page where a place to do so is provided.

In any case, as with all of my Reddit answers found on my site here, my original post on Reddit is much shorter then the article here.

Evil men go out of their way to try to drive a person to suicide.

Are you an evil man?

Are you sure you're not?

How many people have YOUR hate filled words killed?

Next time you go to do a mean thing to a fellow human, stop and really think about the consequences of your actions.

Did you ever notice how every one has a story to tell about me, yet not one of them ever speaks the truth?

What lies has YOUR gossiping tongue spread about me?

Did you know...

October 16, 2006, bomb blew up my house because of YOUR lies.

August 8, 2013, the house which replaced the one the bomb blew up, was driven over by a backhoe.

November 14, 2013, my 8 month old infant son was murdered because of your lies.

November 14, 2013, I was beaten up, paralized for 5 months, spent 18 weeks relearning to walk, I'm now crippled for the rest of my life, because of YOUR lies.

Are you proud of what you have done?

Enjoy your eternity in Hell. You earned it. You've certainly worked hard for it.
