- About me
Edmund Alexander Sims is the Chief Executive Officer of and a Frequent Contributor for Dope Enterprises Infinity - a Buffalo Grove, Illinois-based company that creates, produces, markets, and distributes literary and music entertainment. He is responsible for the strategic direction of the company and leading its two subsidiaries: Dope Enterprises and Def Mute Records. Edmund joined Dope Enterprises Infinity in 2009.
When asked about writing, Edmund's first love, he often takes a modest tact in describing himself as merely a scribe - just the hand which guides the pencil across the paper or the fingers that type the text into the word processor. Nothing more. All credit is really due to the characters because they are the ones who truly drive these stories. They are the ones who are responsible for navigating the most pressing of situations, sorting out varying degrees of conflict, and seeking some semblance of resolution. He cannot take the credit for this because, ultimately, their stories deserve to be told, and it is his duty (as an author) to honor them.
Prosaic cinematography and stream of consciousness are the literary tools that Edmund uses to create deeply immersing works which plunge readers completely into the middle of the action as well as the heads of the characters. With intricately woven story lines and a naturally diverse character set, he seeks to broaden the audience for reading while giving the bookworms a tantalizing new feast of refreshing literature. His bibliography includes the SpaceStation Colt and Domina series.
Edmund is a 1999 graduate of Michigan State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in General Business Administration.

All this (the creation of the @dopeenterprises Universe) became an amazing way to keep family and friends close across distance and decades.Friday, 17 May 2013 08:57

@jasonadam Congratulations!Saturday, 30 March 2013 15:16
Heck, EMP and ERW are interesting concepts by themselves, but for as interesting as they are, I hope that nobody ever decides to create the satellite weapon being described in my status update story..
Mistress Anastasia, it is all about moving forward and the progression toward not only grasping at but clutching infinity. I hope that everything is going well for you! :)
Infinite progress. I like that. Embrace your power of intellect as it exudes from your inner soul. Thank you, I am very well, and send you smiles my friend :)
Thank you for the kind words!
Ha, no - never that. The main character of this story (which is being told by status updates) has other methods for relieving stress..
right now i dont know what to make
I just came back from heading over there. Good stuff!
You are absolutely right.
Hi! Thank you for accepting. It is nice to meet you as well.
But I found a great way to deal with all of it. I bought a little boat - a 1966 - 16 foot aluminum ski boat. I went out and sanded the old paint off, primered and repainted it with a brush by hand. The boat looks great on the outside now.
I first painted it when it was too hot (110 degrees) even though I was in the shade, the paint dried faster than I could paint it on. I had to sand all of the new paint off and start over. That was a job. Now that it's done, I'm ready to begin another work project.
At the end of that, I'll tear the motor down and rebuild it, finish the flooring, carpets and seating and then go take a boater's safety course to learn how to operate the thing.
Why do this? Because it's relaxing, it's not work and it's for me alone. My personal project. Total I've spent? $250.00 plus $50.00 in paint. I'll spend $500.00 on the motor in two weeks to have a mechanic show me how to tear it down. It costs the same for him to do a rebuild but he's a friend and didn't mind showing me and if it ever breaks down, I'll be able to fix it myself.
Not doing anything about the "between jobs" part will cause me to end up in a hospital for hypertension. $20,000.00 in doctor bills, meds and that crap. Plus, I've lost about 15 pounds working in the heat and sweating it out. If you find a project like my boat project (something you enjoy doing but challenging), you'll probably be better off dealing with "the betweens".
Didn't want to be preaching and I'm not a know-it-all, I just thought I'd share my technique to dealing with "the betweens" to help with the stress. Sorry if I step past the limit.
Believe me, I certainly do not take this as stepping past any limit. The thing that I love about MyOuterSpace is the various different perspectives. Creativity is an inexact science, but at least there is no shortage of inspiration and motivation on this social network.
It is weird - needing to be busy, and this is not a workaholic type of busy because I truly enjoy what I am doing, but then I finish a book, and then it is like...uh oh, what next? I had not considered an interim project. That is a great idea!
That's hilarious. Whatever it is, I don't think that it's any good for any of us. :)
What is "writer's block"? I've never had it. I have had a moment or two when writing when I wasn't able to say what I wanted to, but then I write a bunch of crap, take a break and come back to the work later. When I read what I wrote, I have to laugh and wonder what the heck I was thinking about. Then I go back to work and continue writing. It ALWAYS works for me.
Yeah, I agree that the break is key. Sometimes, I just end up forcing things when I really need to just take a step back and let things flow again.
I have the same issue, hence the pile of uncompleted projects filling my hard drive. With no deadline but my own, I find it difficult to finish what I have already completed in my mind. I grow impatient with the process as new ideas call like Sirens and partly completed project are dashed on the rocks of my disinterest.
Ha ha. That's a great analogy! It is a tightrope's dance - that is for sure.
I hate uncompleted projects but I have three of them right now. It's the "midway blues". I'm mid way through a project and run out of steam and ideas.It's so hard to go back to work afterwards. This year though, I WILL complete all three.
The only way that I have seen to get around this is to self-impose deadlines and stick to them. I was pulling some seriously late nights this past week, and psychologically, I was at the point where I would have been seriously bummed out if I did not hit them. Plus a little bit of the "I just want to get this thing done so I can move on" was setting in at that point which always helps.... :)
You got it! It's nice to meet you, and thanks for the kind words.
Hi! I like where you're going with that. It would definitely build more tension and allow for some good back and forth between the different series leading up to the dire circumstances of the novel. Thank you!
Certainly. Thanks for accepting. It's nice to meet you!
