  1. Dabble Writing Software

    I saw this in my posting stream over at Facebook. I wasn't sure where to post it here. I could find or remember where the software section is. My questions are:

    Has anyone tried this?
    What do you think of it?
    Is it worth the money?

    Yes, they too claim to be the software we need; just like all the others.

  2. Time Crunch

    It's coming up fast. There are about only 5 weeks left until my move. It's hard to believe it's almost here.

    This Friday I get my storage unit. This Saturday is my farewell luncheon at the local Golden Corral.
    Next week, my stuff goes into said storage unit. It's unreal. For the last few months I kept thinking time was going so slow. And now, it's like where'd the time go?

  3. First Submission

    Today, it was finally my turn to make that milestone we all have to make, eventually.
    This afternoon, I submitted Choices to an e-zine for consideration in publication.

    I am satisfied with the story as it is. It's been suggested that I expand on this piece, dig deeper into the characters. This is always a possibility, for now though, I'm content with where it is.

    It'll be somewhere between 3 to 6 months before I know if they'll accept the piece.
    In the mean ...

  4. Took a break

    I hadn't meant to disappear for so long. I needed to take a break to sort through some personal issues and a few other things. One thing happened after another- and then 2 of my cats died. It's been an emotional rollercoaster for the past year.

    I'll try to be here but can't make any promises or guarantees.

  6. The Social Media Struggle

    The other night I'm sitting here thinking of what to do about this mess. The neighbors moved out- so the building is quiet, aside from a certain kitty making a ruckus. It's difficult to think when she's yowling.

    Of course that's not the current in a long list of complications I've had to content with over the years. It's been a battle. There has been pressure to do one thing or another with my work, to have characters be of a certain concept or another, and then finally someone new ...

  9. Update! I've finished Step 2!

    The 'Magazine Choice Form' - select a suitable publications from the book and fill out the details on the form. Of the 4 that remained on my list of possible magazines for submission- I chose the one with the best website, Strange Horizons.

    If you'd like to see a copy of the form about this online publication- shoot me a PM and I'll send you a copy in response. After my instructor has reviewed and responded to my lesson, then I'll put it up on my website.

  10. Adjustments Made to LRWG # 08

    After reviewing and contemplating the previous draft of the piece, I opted to drop the portion where Digger retreats to a tunnel. I did this primarily because it conflicts with his previous action of shuffling away (leaving the scene) to tell Doctor Gallaine that Lynn would be staying in the chamber. After removing his retreat to the tunnel, I polished the piece to adjust for the change and it flows much better.
