To Say Nothing of the Dog

Very few sci-fi books are set in Victorian England, and for good reason. There’s usually a shocking lack of advanced technology there, for example. Or ideas about the future of mankind. Or time travel. (yes, that last one is key) Continue reading

Category RSS Feeds

…are up.

Click on any category link on the left, and you’ll see on the right the link for that feed. Now you don’t have to hear about all my blathering! Just the blathering you care about! Or something.

Working on three different posts right now, not sure what’s actually going to make it up on Thursday. Will be a post, though, if I can help it.

Writing for Me

My mom and I are both writers. She’s just getting into fiction after working mainly in non-fiction for most of her life, and I’m failing to stay on task for actually getting any writing done at all, so we’re trying to arrange a weekly reading and critique of each other’s work. This is hard for both of us – both because we have difficult schedules and because neither of us is terribly comfortable showing other people our “beta” work, which is what this would be.

So, the first order of business was to decide what kind of writing we should work on.

Updated Site!

Hey all, I changed the site around a bit to make it easier to read. (I liked the black but it was hard on the eyes for longer posts.) I’m going to tweak the site a bit more in the next few days, probably put the categories back on top and such, so if you have any suggestions/comments about the look let me know.

Also, the site should look really nice now on any mobile device, especially an iPhone (as that’s what I had to test it on!). I’m really pleased with how that turned out!

Planning on a more regular posting schedule right now of every Thursday, with the goal of making it be Tuesdays and Thursdays once I get into a routine here. No topic schedule, though I do plan to eventually put up a category specific rss feed on here so you won’t need to hear about stuff you don’t care about on here. 🙂
