Story
Introduction
If you want freelance writing work done, go to my website. I do SEO writing, ghost blogging, proof reading and script work. My best subjects are pets and animals, including horses, writing advice, fitness and travel. I will also rewrite your own material and improve the written content on your website. Copy editing and proofreading services are also available. Rates are on my G+ page (Jennifer R. Povey Writer)

If you want to read cool fiction, go to my website. Some of it is even free.

In politics, I consider myself an independent. I am in favor of marriage equality, feel government should stay out of our bedrooms and our doctor's offices, and believe welfare should be a safety net not a fish handout. I do not identify as either a liberal or conservative.

I am British by birth and American by choice.

I ride horses. I occasionally hug trees. I think science is cool and technology can solve our problems.

I read voraciously, but mostly science fiction and fantasy. I role play, but I do not roll play.

I believe in humanity and I believe in the divine. However, I am *not* a Christian. I am a Druid and Asetru, so my theological arguments may seem odd to some of you. I believe in moving forward as a civilization to a new equilibrium with the world and the universe, not backwards to the 'good old days'.

I dislike racism, sexism and homophobia, but I value differing opinions. I dislike arguments but love debates. I place a high value on respectful disagreement but will cheerfully block trolls and assholes. I have strong opinions and I voice them freely.

Note: I post GLBT oriented material regularly (but I do not post pornographic material). Some of the links I post may be to horror fiction, in some cases fairly extreme. Not everything I post would be considered suitable by all parents. You have been warned.

My blocking policy:
Post low quality pornography - blocked.
Post child pornography - blocked and reported.
Make personal attacks against me - blocked.
Direct message me to sell a product unless it is through an opt-in circle - blocked.
Direct message me with material that is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic or hateful in any way - blocked and possibly reported depending on how I'm feeling that day.
Bragging rights
Multiple short story credits. First novel fall 2013.

What is a war bridle?
A war bridle is basically a rope or cord that runs through a horse's mouth, around the chin and over the poll. They are one of the harshest devices that can be used on a horse. (They're made in a similar way to English rope halters, but those don't go throu...

+Buzz Aldrin Proves the Federal Government Has A Form for Everything

Buzz Aldrin blew away Throwback Thursday forever last week when he shared his travel voucher from the Apollo 11 mission on Facebook and Twitter. Yeah, for his trip to the moon....
This may be the only exciting piece of government paperwork you’ll ever read. Buzz Aldrin conquered Throwback Thursday forever last week when he shared his travel voucher from the Apollo 11 mission on Facebook and Twitter.

What is a spade bit?
A spade bit is a bit used in the vaquero tradition. It has long, straight shanks, often highly decorated. It also has a straight mouthpiece with a high piece in the center (called a port) and a spoon plate fixed to the port. Spade bits are used only by skil...

What is a bridoon?
A bridoon is a special kind of snaffle bit that's used with a full bridle. Bridoons are narrower than normal snaffle bits (so they can fit in the mouth with a second bit) and thus are a little harsher. (They are never used alone).

What is a weymouth bit?
In a full bridle, the weymouth bit is the curb or leverage bit, to which the "bottom" rein is attached. A weymouth is never used on its own (although it's similar to some western curb bits - western people ride differently and use different bits).

Hey, guys. The cute hitchhiking robot was not one of our new overlords. At least, I don't think so. (Personally, I'm starting to think robots would do a better job of running the planet). In proof that hitchhiking isn't safe for anyone, the Hitchbot was fou...
Hey, guys. The cute hitchhiking robot was not one of our new overlords. At least, I don't think so. (Personally, I'm starting to think robots would do a better job of running the planet). In proof that hitchhiking isn't safe for anyone, the Hitchbot was found "dismembered" in Philadelphia.

Mysterious objects called brown dwarfs are sometimes called "failed stars." They are too small to fuse hydrogen in their cores, the way most stars do, but also too large to be classified as planets. New study suggests they create powerful auroral displays, similar to the kind seen around the magnetic poles on Earth. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1N2l14a #NASABeyond

Sadly, unlike most cool astronomical stuff, "brown dwarf" is not a cool name for a super hero.

The Silent Years
I did a thing today: Yup. If you've been hesitating about getting the Silent Years novellas, you can now get them all in a bundle for a slightly cheaper price. This does mean print, too, although that will probably (thanks to summer schedule and family stuf...
