A Motivated Killer

Toe-Cutter cover

Most of the articles here are about getting motivated and avoiding negativity. What if you lived in a world where the negatives never ended? I wrote a novella which I’m giving away for free that explores just that kind of life.

Vern grew up in violence and learned to fit in. He tries to look on the bright side and fight for those he sees as the good people. Can he fight evil without becoming evil himself?

If you think you might like a short walk on the dark side, the story is only 30,000 words. That’s about 80 pages in print.

There’s a link to download your free copy of Toe-Cutter on my book page.

Ivan Izo – Where Are You Going?

Ivan Izo – Where Are You Going?

I’ve been thinking about the future of Ivan Izo’s blog. It has gone through a few changes over the years. It started as a site to document a film project, and then turned into a screenwriting blog which became a writing blog. After the writing was ported to a new blog, Writer on Fire, it became a psychology blog.

At one time, I had the idea I would write positive motivational psychology, just like so many other sites. And I did it. Every night, I would go to sleep thinking about what I could write on motivation. Every morning, I got up and wrote a motivational article.

Then I got enthusiastic. My articles became deeper and harder to follow.
