The Quivering Release

A few months ago I watched as a friend made the decision to F-lock their journal after receiving visits from a Troll. The point of the F-locking was to protect their friends from the spewing vitriol of the random Trolls. Collapse )

The best advice from odd sources

Post my journalistic escapades, I was left floundering around with my own scraps of fictional writing that had been shoved to the wayside. With not many hours in the day, most of my writing was for the newspaper only. Collapse )

Read L.A. Banks - she is magnificent!

I have a difficult time reading about how there is so much failure in the SciFi genre when someone like L.A. Banks has written so many excellent novels. And achieved quite a lot for a female writer, a writer of color, whose main character is a female of color, who fights vampires. I have no patience for people who continue to give press and float names of writers who have "failed" and  someone like L.A. Banks  gets nary a mention anywhere that I have seen on any of the rec lists floating around. What a huge failure on the part of SciFi readers and bloggers. So, I am challenging people to actually read someone who is out there making it happen, rather than just sitting around whining about it. She gets it done, ladies and gentlemen. Have a nice day! And in case you don't know who I am talking about : http://leslieesdailebanks.com/

Storytelling Size Queening

Once upon a time, I measured my writing in inches, as all newspaper writers are wont to do out of habit. Most days, an editor will ask for you to outline your story and the potential components. Then later, the story is not just about the story but the presentation. As in how will it fit in the physical layout of the newspaper. And the way to plan that is in inches. Collapse )
