Welcome to my page!


:iconmirz123: This is the alternate account of Mirz123. You can expect to see a lot of varied art here, such as literature, web-design, and traditional art. You'll see alternate pixelling such as digital dolls and some edgy stamps and emotes. This account is also where I publish episodes of my fiction serial, "Relativity." Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the art.

My Universes




RELATIVITY is a character drama that centers around a team of superheroes who operate in the fictional Gale City. The focus of the series, however, is the people behind the mask, and how they juggle work, life and love while donning a mask at night. While essentially a prose-comicbook series, Relativity is also firmly planted in the speculative-mystery genre as the team investigates and solves various crimes, while also contending with a menagerie of strange and interesting villains.







THE CHASERS UNIVERSE is a series of science-fiction novels currently in development. The Mulvahrien Galaxy is home to countless races and planets. It is governed by the Chasers Collective, and headed by the Monarch, a member of one of the 17 ruling families. However, all is not as peaceful and serene as it seems. As inequities grow between the classes, age-old laws are re-examined, and citizen begin to fight for change. But the Collective will not be so easily deterred...




BITMAP WORLD is the first and longest-running emoticomic on the internet. It follows the life and adventures of the Pixels, a family of smilies living on the server. Family, friendship, work, computers, online gaming, and ding-dong-ditch are all explored and poked-fun-at in this humor strip.

Fine Weather We're Having...

Thu Jan 21, 2016, 3:05 AM
Actually, the weather has been terribly cold. Single digits and low-teens. Typical January weather in Chicago, but I'll complain about it anyway. :D But, being huddled up in the house, trying to stay warm, does have one advantage. It gives you lots of time to write! And with that, I'm happy to announce the beginning of Relativity Book 7.

This story was totally ready to publish, as promised, on Monday. In fact, we had all of the teasers and deviation pages ready to go. However, after giving it one last read-over, while I loved the story, there were a few things that bugged me. So we made the decision to hold off a few days. (I actually planned to hold-off just 1 or 2 days, but then real life happened -- mostly being swamped at my 9-to-5 job --and that pushed it over.)

This was really a story where I was reminded of the meaning of the phrase, "kill your darlings." While the story was good, it just wasn't to the level I wanted it to be... the level it deserved to be. There were a few things I absolutely loved, but just didn't quite work, and got cut in that final edit. While I ended up trimming an additional 1000 words, that wasn't the biggest problem. There were a few tricky sections, simple paragraphs and sentences, that gave me fits.  I literally spent 3 hours working on one paragraph which didn't flow well, and nothing worked. Gave new meaning to the word "grind." In the end, the updated final is not substantially different, just cleaner and tighter.

That said, in many ways, this isn't a new episode, but a continuation of the last episode. So, I will give a fair warning to new readers that if you are jumping into the series with the current story, it would probably best if you backed-up one and began with A Dish Best Served Cold.

The next story will continue to explore the aftermath of these episodes, but it will be a much-needed lighter story. "Checkmate" in about 2 weeks.







Oh, and while I did mention this in the past (and it's not stated in the story), this episode was named after this tongue-twister/poem which I have loved since I was a little kid...

Resources & Articles


Since I'm no expert, I try to learn new things and find handy resources to help me in my writing. I like to share some of my best-finds in the hopes they will help you, too.

Writer Resources and MoreWhen poking around for stuff on my own, I sometimes come across things I think other writers may find useful. While it's fine to tweet and write polls about them, I figure it would be more helpful if I started a journal and kept a running list. Would help me to keep track of them, too. I'll update this when I find new  things.
Many people write fan-fiction. There is a budding community of authors right here on DA, who write stories based around others' worlds. While there is a lot of talk about copyright and the legality of fan-art,  fan-fiction seems much more elusive and mysterious. But it really isn't. This is a very good and informative article that explains not only the legality of fan-fiction, but your rights with respect to fan-characters (OCs who reside in the fan universe), and the legality of fan-fics of fan-fics (yes, they happen).

Resources, Sites and StuffHere is a collection of bits and pieces I have found that may prove useful for writers. Some are links to website, some memes and graphics, other miscellaneous stuff.

Helpful Links & Resources
:bulletwhite: Oh, Baby Names - Great resource for writers, and all around fun. Baby name sites are good for coming up with names for characters. But this site is one of the best I’ve found, offering a plethora of historical information and meaning for each name. An awesome find worth a look and bookmark.
:bulletwhite: English History Authors Blog - If you are writing historical fiction, this blog is worth a look. Nice articles on writing the genre, as well as facts about the period to make your writing more believable.
