AT PRESENT: At present, much of my work is centered around Sustainable Developments and our current efforts to establish a PPP Project in cooperation with the government of the Philippines to fund a rather expansive 3600 Hectare Private Island Systemically Sustainable or Whole System Sustainable Land Development Project in full cooperation with the Tribal Government of the Philippines in order to begin building even larger, more systemically sustainable developments within the Philippines and around the globe. Thus, at present the site will open up to the Whole System Sustainable Development book which I am posting here in its entirety. For those who may not be inclined to wait, you can either buy it on Amazon or you can simply email me and request an electronic copy if you prefer. At a later date, I hope to include the primary portion of the front page to display contributor blogs, but for the moment, I need to focus on getting things together with the government agents and agencies. I hope you will understand and bear with us through this stage of growth. 

GUEST POSTING: There are some pretty amazing posters who have started here, and we hope that you will read and enjoy their materials enough to comment on them and share your thoughts directly with the authors. If you would like a home to place your work where it is not going to be hidden behind advertisements or other links trying to sell you the latest and greatest fads or otherwise being introduced on most websites, we would love to have your contributions as well. We will never monetize or otherwise use any of your data or your materials, with the exception of sharing them with visitors to this site! Which again, we hope will become a thriving community for artists of all types. Please bear with us as we are currently rebuilding the site and adding older content at present, including some books. 

BECOME AN ACTIVE CONTRIBUTOR: Financial contributions are always welcomed but never expected. However, we can still use your help. Whether you are interested in assisting us to build up the website or want to become more involved in the complete eradication of poverty and changing the world for the better, we can use your help and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to assist in any way! We are always here and happy to respond. 

With thanks, Marcus WC Tipton. Please enjoy and be sure to let us know your thoughts!

When I was a kid, we had a saying, though in all honesty, I suppose it was as much of a taunt as a saying … it went like this; “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me!” In short, it meant that if the best argument you...

ABOUT US: A long place ago in a time far away there was a website known as Writer Beat which is no longer in existence. Some of the very eclectic group asked that the site be rebuilt, and while this is not an exact replica of the site, I hope that it will capture the spirit and the original intent of the Writer Beat website. Hopefully it will also gain the approval of some of the former members of Writer Beat as well. (This should not be confused with the WritersBeat website currently up and operational)
