New blog post about how social media makes the world smaller, and the joys of promoting more than just your books and yourself.
Disney had it right: it IS a small world, after all. Our ever-evolving communications technology has made that possible. We've gone from the telegraph and telephone to social media, FaceTime, and Skype. I have a couple of sma...

New blog post on how critique groups challenge us as both readers and writers.
I had a try-out, of sorts, for a local critique group today. That probably makes it sound weird. It wasn't. They invited me to their group to see how they work, then asked me some questions at the end (and I got to return the...

New blog post about lessons learned from NaNo, and moving forward with goals.
When it comes to NaNoWriMo, at least. At the rest of life, I'm #winning like Charlie Sheen, just without the tabloid shenanigans and drug-aided psychoses. I didn't get to 50,000 words this year. This marked the eighth year I'...

The fourth in my ongoing blog series.
Let's talk about reading. We're all writers, so it stands to reason that we're all readers, too. Is it possible to be a good writer without being a voracious reader? For 2012, I set a goal of reading 35 books. I stopped count...

Can we still rip things from the headlines if we can't find a newspaper?
"Ripped from the Headlines~!" While I everything with "2" or "II" in the title really should have the subtitle "Electric Boogaloo," I wanted to be (semi-)serious about this. This post was going to be about writing while o...

New blog post about my ongoing search for a writing group...
My recent foray into joining a writing group didn't work out. They liked me, and I think they liked what I wrote. Their issue was not wanting to make the group too genre-heavy. It's a shame. I liked the group and I think I wo...

Welcome to the writing world of 2014.
It's 2014. Do you know where your stories are? Hopefully, they're on your pages, e-pages, or on a bookshelf somewhere.  In my last post, I talked about setting realistic writing goals for yourself. It's common for people ...

New blog post about the value of NaNoWriMo, and how I spent week 1.
"Wait, wait," I can hear you say. "This is the 11th. Week one of National Novel Writing Month passed a few days ago." Indeed it did, Dear Reader. You are as perceptive as ever. However, your humble scrivener didn't start putt...

A (late) blog post in my August series. 
I'm close to finishing another first draft. There are probably two more chapters to go. This will make six books in my mystery series, and eight overall. Yes, at some point, I'm going to have to get around to doing something ...

Every Flippin' Pizza we've been to has been great. Their pizzas are huge and very tasty. We usually add red sauce to the tomato basil pizza and it's fantastic. I like the fact they don't use artificial ingredients when making them. They have good lunch specials every day. The restaurant is on the small side.
