Nick Iandolo, A Guy Who Loves To Write About Awesome Stuff!

Hey Readers, Fellow Sci-Fi Fans, and Geeks Like Me!

Welcome to the new home of my latest blog!

Actually TenthSphere.com has been around since I registered it back in 1999. Ten years later I finally decided to make an actual website with that domain name. The first TenthSphere.com (not unlike the first Matrix) was a utopian mishmash of blog posts, professional and creative writing samples portfolio, subdomains for selected purposes, and an online class registration site. The second TenthSphere.com was strictly a writing samples portfolio. Now this current one is dedicated to my author’s blog—the professional writing samples will be moved to NicholasIandolo.com once it’s up and running, so stay tuned.

As any creative writer trying to make inroads into the publishing industry and acquire representation, these days one has to have a blog. I’m already on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, the IMDb, and Absolutewrite.com but that’s not enough. Author’s need a blog that is truly their own to showcase the depths of their creativity and writing prowess.

My dream has always been to be a Science Fiction and genre author, ever since I was a kid. So even if my day job is something else, I will always be writing sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural and hope that people will read and enjoy my stories.

Like Bruce Wayne (i.e Batman) I am a professional writer from Boston Massachusetts by day. I do a lot of PR, Marketing & Communications, Social Media, Copy and Business Writing for companies and organizations.

Recently, I was the Senior Marketing Communications Writer and Producer of Special Programs with Dedham Television and Media Engagement Center. I had the great fortune to produce my own show, Nick’s Sci-Fi Corner, and other videos with this organization.

I was also a freelance journalist with Motif Magazine, an arts and entertainment print publication and webzine based in Providence Rhode Island. I wrote about pop-culture events such as San Diego Comic-Con and Rhode Island Comic Con.

But now I just write. Here’s some of the types of stories that I pen (or keyboard!):

  • Science Fiction (Hard and Fanciful)
  • Fantasy Fiction (namely Pirate fiction)
  • Supernatural Fiction
  • Action/Adventure
  • Star-crossed Romance
  • Poetry
  • Children’s Science-based Adventure Fiction
  • Thought Pieces
  • Non-fiction Inspirational
  • Fitness & Health
  • Eco-Fiction

To all of my fellow writers out there, I say never give up your dreams of writing. Write the way you want to write. Don’t let any one else impose their views upon your writing and writing style but always keep an open mind concerning feedback. Be strong and have a thick skin because you’re going to take a beating as a writer but you’ll come out of it stronger and better in the end. And have fun writing! You write because you love it, not because it pays the bills or makes you look good. If you don’t love it; don’t bother doing it.

I love to write; you will see in these posts and all over this site just how much!

Cheers,

Nick Iandolo
