Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 43

I walk like a trapped wolf on a path of cement. I hung the sidewalks like I'm sniffing for blood. But I'm looking for escape. Or I'm looking for the sun. I'm looking for that place east of it and west of the moon. I look for it in books like I look for it … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 43

2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

Well, 2020 is over folks, though that doesn't mean this year is going to be infinitely better than the last (don't mean to be a Puddleglum here), and if it's not, we can't say "well, it's 2020" anymore, so what are we gonna do???

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 11

Go do yourself a favor and listen to the Mandalorian soundtrack on Spotify. Right now. I watched Star Trek: the Motion Picture this week which I haven't watched in YEARS. My sister had never seen it before and....I don't think she was that impressed (honestly, it was a looooooot sloooooooower than I remembered it being.) … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 11

Writerly Rants: Part 2

Remember that rant I posted a several weeks ago? Well...there's more to it. (Some of these are not particular to written fiction. Some of these things are in movies that drive me banana balls). *enter rant* 1: Stuttering Yes, people stutter when they talk. So yes, you should put stuttering into your dialogue.
