Throwback Thursday

| September 22, 2016

I’ve been blogging off-and-on for years, and today I’d thought I’d go point to the ten most popular blog entries I have according to Google Analytics. Predictably, six of them are writing related. (Note, these don’t include the Plot and Worldbuilding articles that drive about half the traffic here. Those aren’t blog posts.) Character Driven vs. Plot […]

And I am back again…

| July 12, 2016

I have returned. (Not that I’ve actually gone anywhere.) My wife is cracking the social media whip at me, telling me I should stop ignoring the blog portion of my site. So I’m going to start posting here again so my little corner of the web doesn’t look so abandoned. Look for me to be posting […]

The Blogs, They Are A-changin…

| October 3, 2014

I’ve been keeping some sort of web presence since I was first published, back in 1993.  Being a computer geek outside my work as a novelist, I’ve gotten into the habit of rolling my own site.  So I’ve lived through the era of hand-coded html and animated gifs. I’ve struggled with Javascript menus, and had […]

Ending the Experiment

| July 2, 2014

While the site is officially under construction I’ve gone and removed my experiment in republishing TeeK on my blog. I haven’t deleted the work, but I’m not leaving it public while it’s unfinished and I have no idea what to do with it. Apologies to anyone who was following it, but other writing projects took […]

Still Working

| June 28, 2014

Most of my time right now is devoted to revisions of the new novel. (When not engineering sheep habitat.) But I will be returning to this shortly.

yeah the site was dead for awhile. . .

I’ll be bringing it back.   Watch this space.

Watch this space. . .

| August 21, 2011

Well in a little less than two weeks I’ll be attending DragonCon, my last convention for a while as I retool myself to paying a little more attention to the writing part of this whole writing thing.  My agent has two full novels to shop around, and I’m busy finishing my Namowrimo project from last […]

Unexpected attention. . .

| March 31, 2011

A year ago I blogged about Mr. Patrick Roscoe an asshat of epic proportions whose claim to fame is sending the following to a literary agent: Colleen Lindsay: Thank you for making it clear, through your response to my query, that you are unquipped (sic) to represent fiction writers who are working at the very […]

Why I filter my comments. . .

| January 20, 2011

I had really nice comment today on my latest blog post: “With your ability, certainly you have learned praises before but I just want to involve to the many who have thanked you for what you’ve attained. Your work are one of a kind and show great insight. Thanks for your contributions!” I almost approved […]

Priorities

| December 29, 2010

Writing tip: If you want to really do this, you can’t complain about lacking the time.  If you lack the time, it’s only because you have placed things higher on the priority list than actually writing. Things like blogging. . . That is all.
