A Further, Crazier, Explanation of A Few Things

One more thing. It seems there is always one more thing, am I right? I stumbled across this page as I was doing some research. They used the term 'multidimensional man,' a term I hadn't heard until well after I had the idea for this story. The purpose for even pointing it out is that it helps... Sign in to see full entry.

Notes on 'Interdimensional:' I am getting notes and suggested corrections from the beta-readers I have following this story, and I thought I would share a few of them with the folks here in Blog-it-ville. These are real recent questions. Question #1) You seem to have a Buick Park Avenue in your... Sign in to see full entry.

Writers 'Under Pressure'

This is from a 'club' I joined some years back. If I recall, this originates in the UK somewhere. In this episode, James Sumner reminds us that taking care of our mental health is as important as anything else in an author’s life. This is the YouTube link to the 55 minute show.

Writing A 'Thanks To' Segment

Just as Dunne wrote, ' No Man Is An Island,' a writer needs someone who will pull no punches and slap them upside their head to the errors in their work. Of course, many writers get highly upset and angry when someone really does a proper editing of their work. I used to feel that way, but learned a... Sign in to see full entry.

I continue to listen to Stephen King's Audible edition of 'On Writing.' In the fifth chapter, he explains his writing routine: "Read and write four to six hours a day. If you cannot find the time for that, you can't expect to become a good writer." He sets out each day with a quota of 2000 words and... Sign in to see full entry.

I got an email from a guy who had read a story I wrote. As I remembered, I had not included my email in that particular story, but then again, I have an unusual name that will bring up a lot of places that include my email. It's part of the game, ya know? Anyway, he asked how I came up with some of... Sign in to see full entry.

I suspect that I get tangled up in the minutia of publishing a bit too much, but that's just me. In my eternal search to find new ways of increasing my sales, I occasionally find a good place. I use this site mainly for the informational emails they send out. Be warned that this guy pushes his... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes, writing something meant to be fiction turns into a research project bigger than another research project that had been a part of my life for five years. While I've had a lot of 'schooling' in physics, chemistry, and such, it was a long time ago. I once used a line that might describe my... Sign in to see full entry.

The more I use Grammarly, the more I begin to instinctively write better. Comma usage has been the death of me all of my life. I've begun to learn to control that. As I've explained, most times when I am working on a story, my fingers and my brain part company for a few hours, and when they meet... Sign in to see full entry.

The Audible stuff is coming along nicely right about now. I finally got a story taken down that was given to someone who seems to have just disappeared. I liked the woman's voice, but she last contacted me back in November, saying that she was ill, and now I can't raise her on ACX or via email.... Sign in to see full entry.
