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...

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 9, 2017, 8:54 AM
Honestly, not sure how to start this post. I want to say this is a sad day, but it's not entirely sad. In fact, there is some happiness, and maybe even a bit of relief as one thing is off my plate -- for a while, that is. Nevertheless, I want to announce that I am closing the ChasersUniverse group. If anyone has noticed, the website has been down for nearly a month. Quite frankly, I have not had the money to get it back up, and won't have the money until it's too late to do so. Not to mention, I'm not sure if it's a prudent expense to keep on the books, all considering.

Many of you know my family is in foreclosure. We're going to be losing our house soon. It's a very stressful time. Keeping Relativity up is challenging enough. It's just proving too much to keep Chasers going at the same time, particularly since we've decided to hold off on any major writing on the novels until at least next year.

That said, this is also a professional decision. While Jim and I have always planned to self-publish the series, I have been talking to a couple of people who are urging us to not rule out traditional publication. While this wouldn't be something we could do until 2018, at the earliest, the recommendation is that we shouldn't have so much "stuff" out there as that scares off potential publishers. To that end, I have removed the sample chapters and 6-word stories. I should note, I am still very much inclined to eventually self-publish on this, but removing everything allows us to keep our options open. It allows us to pursue traditional routes if we feel inclined to, or if we do decide to just do it ourselves, we can simply re-post everything at that time and continue forward.  Since our main focus is on Relativity at the moment, anyway, it doesn't really present a big change for us.

Artists, if you have created Chasers art for us, no worries. Keep it in your gallery. I'm not looking to wipe out all of the art; I'm keeping my own Chasers photomanips in my own gallery. However, some art I have removed because it spoilerish and/or I may re-work things for certain character and stories. For the art that remains, I'm just going to go around and fave them into a regular folder so I have them in a favorites folder rather than the group.

Anyhow, I do want to thank everyone for your support of the series concepts and stories/characters. Chasers isn't going away. It's just going to sleep. My hope is that in a year or two, I'll be posting another journal about it's awakening. :love:

*** P.S. I have been told that sample chapters are acceptable, even if you plan to publish mainstream. With that, I may re-post a couple on my blog in the near future, but it will be just that, "sample." Anything formal will wait until 2018 or 2019. ***

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.
