I have long been out of love with the mainstream #skeptics movement. Maybe I never figured out how to join it.
tl;dr While I share almost all of their inclinations, the mainstream skeptics movement is too caustic for my tastes, often ignoring any information that doesn't suit its needs. The above image come...

Thanks for your post!
And yeah that cartoon from the OATMEAL is pretty awesome.

I am a Christian and I'm incredibly frustrated at the a$$hatt-ery done in the name of my religion.  It pains me at the damage done  to people who don't subscribe to this at all and aren't hurting anybody.

Unfortunately, the jerks are the loudest voices. Personally, I really appreciate the good that Skeptics and Skeptical do to challenge so many of the awful things that happen just as a matter of ignorance and status quo.

I try to listen to the more quiet and considered voices in any philosophy. Quite frankly, I've learned a lot about being a better human being and a Christian from outside my religious community.

I've learned a lot too from like spirited people with my faith, of course; but I've had to filter a lot of crap from some other Christians in the process too.

I appreciate any good done by anyone and the wisdom of anyone willing to share the light of truth to others.  Where we disagree, I do not have to be threatened, defensive, and I don't have to try to force people to convert to "my side"

Maybe if more people were like you, and like who I aspire to be, it probably would be more of a "heaven on earth" for everyone.

I finish my novels in software, and here are the packages I use!
tl;dr I've got some sweet organizational software that works for me. It might work for you, too. This post is all about the production and software side of a novel. We already talked about novel id...

Occasionally, the New Yorker CRUSHES IT.
I put a quarter in the siren. Ten minutes later, I was on the scene. It was a normal office building, strangled by public sidewalks.

A nice gin and tonic!

For serious, though, I recommend David Benioff's "City of Theives." Holy cats, that is a hell of a book, and so much excitement!

Here is a thing I co-wrote with +Stephen Granade! We ruined #Prometheus! Or fixed it! I'm not really sure!3
 
To help raise money for our DIY Science Zone at GeekGirlCon, I agreed to re-do Prometheus using sock puppets. Heaven help me, I did it.

You bloody-well improved it and you know it. No need to fake humility.

How do you start a novel? On paper!
tl;dr Start on paper. I'm going to tell you how I craft a novel from start to finish. Every author has a workflow, and I'm sure those are no secret. I'm not going to pretend that what I'm telling y...

Why does G+ keep showing me posts with guns? I don't care about guns. I don't particularly LIKE guns. It might as well show me posts about scalpels or horse bridles. These posts are highly useful to SOMEONE ELSE.

In case you missed it on FB and Twitter, I just signed with literary agent +Connor Goldsmith of Foreword Literary!

(This has necessitated me learning how to spell "Foreword" all over again.)

Since we're in the business of ruining things, let's ruin cosplay! I added another Transformers flick to my expanding oeuvre, and +Stephen Granade rebooted Halloween III, which is usually the place you start with a reboot.
 
Now that Halloween's over, let's talk costumes! Cosplay's become a big thing, so we wanted to cash in on it with some cosplay-themed movie pitches for our Disasterpiece Theatre podcast. +Alex White  follows up his "Transformers 4: Crimson of Dawn" pitch with one for "Transformers 5: Mask of the Deception", in which the Transformers have to dress up in costumes to infiltrate a con. I did something more original than a sequel: a reboot of Halloween III, the only Halloween movie to involve killer costumes instead of Michael Myers.
