HEY EVERYONE LISTEN UP: Me and my buddy and fellow writer Dan "Bread and Budda" Pickles are starting a podcast about writing, reading, and cursing. For one of the segments, we need a few questions about writing/reading to answer. Please comment with a question. If you want attribution or promotion of your website/book/event, we'll totally plug you in exchange for your questions.

Thanks!

My Summer Novel Project: The idea II (Pre-Writing)
Sweet Robot Gods, have I had a tough time settling on an idea. It's not that I haven't had any ideas -- I sprout ideas like they be string beans in summer -- but figuring out which idea(s) would work as a novel length manuscript. Also, I have a fear of stor...

Back in April, I brought up the idea in both of my writing groups that maybe we should dedicate the summer to each writing a novel. They – however unwisely – agreed. So here’s the plan: from June 1st through August 31st, every one of us will write a novel. ...

Sold: "The Inked Many" (Lacuna) to Beneath Ceaseless Skies

Review: Summer of Night by Dan Simmons
Summer of Night  by Dan Simmons Summer of Night is a novel that fits
very well in the Simmons cannon. It includes a lot of the elements
that makes Simmons a great writer, as well as the short-comings that
have held me back from “rabid fandom.” Summer of Nig...

2014 Hugo Awards in Review: The Short Stories
(A version of this article originally appeared on the Skiffy and Fanty blog.) I am both pleasantly surprised and just a little disappointed with this year’s batch of nominees. There were no short stories I found to be of poor quality. In my opinion, there w...

Summer Novel Project: The Idea (Pre-Writing)
This, without a doubt, is the most difficult part of the whole process. I’ve learned to write by means of the short story. When I generate an idea, I can readily tell how many words it’s going to take – 2000, 5000, 7000 – to tell the story. Short stories po...
