I’m surprised how many people have never heard of the Dvorak keyboard, a keyboard layout that ramps up your typing speed, fends off carpel tunnel, and increases your accuracy. It’s a layout that almost any computer lets you switch over to. If you’re into…

It’s pretty much accepted as fact that when something exciting happens time slows down and people gain heightened awareness. My recent vacation has made me question this–or at least the notion that we all experience “time dilation” the same way. Two…

Today I’m going to talk about what I call “micro-concepts.” I don’t know if there is a real term for them, but micro-concepts are cool little tidbits, little concepts that come up in some minor point of the story. They can be about a minor character, or a…

Today I continue my thoughts on twists. I recently picked up the first book of Brandon Mull’s “Beyonders” series and was reminded once again how wonderfully it can work to take an established trope and turn it on its head. My intent is to discuss two of…

Last December I wrote about world-building holidays. This weekend, however, reminded me of an important element to consider in creating holidays and determining your characters’ responses to them: not everyone likes holidays. Take the Fourth of July in…

One of my favorite places to eat in St. George. The environment is excellent and the servers have always been excellent to work with. And the food!!! Perfection on a plate! I also love the pewter glasses they serve their drinks in.

Simister Orthodontics has always treated me well. The best thing is that they don't nickle and dime you. They give you a price right up front and they don't charge any more. So there are no surprises. I wish all businesses worked with such integrity, especially since they have had to do more work than originally figured when I first came in.
