If you're the sort who thinks Saturday nights are for reading good books, perhaps you'll consider checking out my new #audiobook.

A while back, I admitted that I’ve starting playing around with Instagram. It started off as a collection of random photos of my life, that then incorporated a handwriting challenge (I think mine’s gotten worse. Oops.), and has stretched to incorporate…

Sometimes, it's what we learn in past lives that helps us succeed in our current life.

I studied ballet growing up, and one of my favorite things to do (when I was old enough to be in shows) was to sit at the studio door and watch the company girls rehearse. I’d watch them carefully, and then go home and figure out how to do what they did.…

This week’s post is going to be a little unconventional. Instead of posting five links to things I’ve found interesting or learned from this week, I’m going to share what I believe to be my first crossmedia project (since I don’t recall the Future of…

Learning From Practiced Tasks: wp.me/p1EfHC-3kj - Deliberate practice can actually deepen your understanding of a skill or topic.

I recently received the following fortune from a cookie: If you understand what you’re doing, you’re not learning anything. And I realized that’s not entirely true. It assumes that you’re practicing rote routines, the way dancers, musicians, and athletes…

Experimenting With Story Forms http://wp.me/p1EfHC-45O

I’ve recently noticed an old post about taking an adaptation approach versus taking a transmedia (or crossmedia, as they say these days) approach gaining a lot of traffic (thank you). When I wrote that post, I was trying to learn everything I could about…

Impostor Syndrome is real and damaging, but you can take steps to minimize its impact on you.

Lately, I’ve been hearing people saying Impostor Syndrome is a sign of leveling up. And I’ve been thinking about what that means. And it led to an interesting train of thought surrounding my productivity systems. For those unfamiliar, Impostor Syndrome is…

When I was in middle school, the average readability level for most newspapers and magazines was right around an eighth-grade level. By the time I started grad school, State of the Union addresses were clocking in at a sixth-grade level. This has been…

The last time I talked about risk, I defined it as: pushing internal or external boundaries, facing fears, making mistakes, learning to assess situations. It means doing something you may not normally do, something that for you might be outside the box.…

Introduction
About Me
I am a writer, editor, and social media producer living at the edge of the Texas Hill Country. I enjoy writing near future science fiction and contemporary fantasy short stories and novellas for Young Adult and New Adult audiences. I also enjoy helping other writers create the strongest, most polished stories possible. I pride myself on being accidentally funny in my stories.

When I'm not building fictional worlds, I use my geeky powers for performing in science fiction and fantasy audiobooks (which I also produce) and audio dramas. I also blog about individual and networked learning and my creative fields at Genius on Hold. My favorite things include books, tea, fan fiction, my library cards, and my bulletin boards.

About My Webspaces
We are what we experience. It shapes who we are, what we do, and how we think. This is my experience. This is what I'm reading, seeing, thinking, and creating. This is where I've been and where I'm headed, for better or for worse. The topics may represent a diverse set of interests to you, but to me it's the tightly woven tapestry of my life. Following me won't change your life. It won't even change how you see the world. But hopefully, it will inspire you to think about and pay attention to what shapes and inspires you.


My Following Policy
(I never thought I'd need one of these, but some creative and business folk on Twitter and G+ apparently need manners or maybe a reminder that they aren't in kindergarten or high school anymore.)

My following policy is simple. I make posts that are interesting to me that I hope will be interesting to others, and I follow people who make interesting posts. I don't auto-follow, and I don't expect people to follow me just because I followed them.

I have zero tolerance for serial add/droppers and for those who engage in that behavior trying to build up their numbers. Those people just don't understand social media. 
Bragging rights
I have a small role in Valiant Comics' Archer & Armstrong audio drama, which was announced at their NYCC panel.
