This Strange New World

I'm considering so many things, thinking, about this strange, new, world, we've found ourselves in as we are now in the future. This is an interesting interview, this quote, talking about the 24/7 internet, etc. "...The societal question is more complex, although I think itโ€™s users themselves and not luddite abstainers like me who are… Continue reading This Strange New World

The Last Time We Visited Aldera Dune

      The Last Time We Visited Aldera Dune by Teri Skultety, copyright 2018, all rights reserved The last time we visited Aldera Dune, it was to watch the world die. The moons of Rionnata glowed with radiation in the distance. One purple, one iridescent green, one a golden orb. All like magic charms… Continue reading The Last Time We Visited Aldera Dune

It’s Me, Pearl.

Itโ€™s Me, Pearl. An Ode to Janis Joplin Itโ€™s never me, itโ€™s you, except that itโ€™s always me, it has never not been me, it has never not been some glaring inadequacy of me, when at my best, it was me, unintentionally, making everyone else feel bad, about whatever they werenโ€™t, because my own inadequacies… Continue reading It’s Me, Pearl.

Clean Water

So, I wouldn't call myself an "environmentalist" unless home decorating counts. I think we've got some serious issues with regard to refuse, litter, polluting our waterways and thus, our water. I'm one of those people who believes that the planet is actually "greening" and greener, that is, that there is more vegetation, more green forest… Continue reading Clean Water

There Is A Season

Let's out deep breath wishes another cup of tea would make itself and bring itself upstairs to me... It is October. Not only is it October, it is three weeks into October. We got home from a few days respite in July to a slew of home improvement projects that, for one reason or another,… Continue reading There Is A Season

Mr. Mercury

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kijpcUv-b8M The other day someone shared this great quote from Freddie Mercury that really spoke to me. I've found several versions of the quote.         What that means is that what he meant when he wrote whatever it was, and what the listener/reader gets out of it or interprets it as, may… Continue reading Mr. Mercury

CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

  Okay, as mentioned, I've been busy. So I hadn't checked some of my emails. When I did get around to that, I had an email from Kindle Direct informing me that they have merged with CreateSpace, the publishing platform I've used as an indie author and privateer to publish my wares. I also use… Continue reading CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

The Book That Wasn’t

Going to share a couple of posts today. This first one is about the book that wasn't, or isn't, or won't be. There's a great quote from Philip Roth, "Don't judge it. Just write it. Don't judge it. It's not for you to judge it." For me this applies completely to writing, but not necessarily… Continue reading The Book That Wasn’t

Changing Atmospheric Conditions

  So, I thought of an analogy for what being a writer sometimes feels like to me. It feels like being on another planet that very few other people have ever been to. They have their ideas about it, they have their assumptions, some of them even have these wonderful fantasies as to what it… Continue reading Changing Atmospheric Conditions

Thankful

Here's my message to writers and artists, to anyone in a creative endeavor, who might be feeling discouraged... if it is really your dream, in your one and only heart of hearts, then don't quit. It's that easy and it is that hard, that simple and that complicated, don't quit. I consider it to be… Continue reading Thankful

Some titles may be temporarily unavailable pending updates. As often said, all this is a "learn as you go" process.

Undone

The other day, in promoting my vampire novel, I posted links to chapter excerpts. In reading through those excerpts again myself, I noticed places where the sentences could use tightening. I noticed places where I want to replace commas with periods. In reading one of my own stories earlier today, I found an instance where… Continue reading Undone

Be In Love With Your Life

I took about a two-week break from working on anything at all writing wise and that was about as much of a break from writing as I could manage. As for what I'm working on, the thing about that is that it doesn't matter, until the work is completed. There are many things that I… Continue reading Be In Love With Your Life

On This Valentines Day

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APx2yFA0-B4   One of the most wonderful things within the many fine and good examples that Bruce Lee left us with, is his example of inclusiveness. Despite being met with prejudice throughout his life, he seemed to hold no such feelings in his own heart. He continuously broke with traditions. He fell in and love… Continue reading On This Valentines Day

The Society of Classical Poets.

The Society of Classical Poets, of which I am a member, was kind enough to republish one of my poems, "The Harvest." I'm honored to be included. I think that their efforts promoting classical poetry are commendable and wonderful, a really cool thing. If you enjoy poetry, you should check out their webpage and anthologies!… Continue reading The Society of Classical Poets.
