Weekend Roundup: September 30 October 6 + Big Bird and Banned Books Week 2012


Tweet of the Day: Thoughts on Narrative Framing Devices ——- Not a lot of posting, but still a busy week. Lots of writing, mainly on my entry to the SFR Brigade Anthology (deadline January 1st, 2013, must be a member to submit). Hoping that my story makes the cut. You should check the site out […]

Weekend Roundup: September 2-8 & Going Forward with David Mitchell


  Tweet of the Day: Is Your Scene Break a Lying, Cheating Fraud? ——- Short week this one, but one that comes with an apology, of sorts. You might have noticed a slight up tick of political posts, this been the season an all (at least in the U.S. and P.R.) . I know this […]

Weekend Rounup: August 19-25


Tweet of the Day: The Embarcation ——- What a week of could haves and have beens. The storm season, or I like to call it, the storm dodging season, has begun. Fall brings storms, none of which we would like to call “our storm”. Some skedaddle across the map with names that barely register, other […]

Weekend Roundup: September 25 – October 1


Tweet of the Day: Dexter in the Middle – Dexter Morgan, Part 2 ——– A week of ending and beginnings, but you could say that about any week of the year or for that matter any point in time. But for this blog it means  the end of one serial and the start of another. […]

Weekend Roundup: September 4-10


Tweet of the Day: Dusk at the Dinner ——– This week theme was Superheroes! and censorship. Yes, it was one of those weeks. Maybe is DC Nu-Universe seeping into the collective consciousness, or too many hours playing Prototype, which is GTA with superpowers, but no heroics. And a maddening final blog of a boss thing […]

Weekend Roundup: July 3 – 9


Tweet of the Day: Writing Diary: Pink Unicorns ——– Another week of blogging, another roundup. So let’s see how this week shaped up: Sun: A very popular Sunday Tweet with Annoying Questions People Ask Writers: “Where do you get your ideas?” Hat tip to Atsiko for a most excellent post. Mon: TV Tropes Monday brought us […]

Weekend Roundup: June 5 – 11


Tweet of the Day: 3 Easy Ways to Build Suspense ——- I noticed a few things about the blog this week: 1. The spam bots seem particularly interested in my theme/widgets.  They are getting more articulate, but not necessarily more intelligent. But they are evolving….shudder. 2. Trolls! Yes, you know your blog is going places […]

Sunday Tweet: Fangs for the Memories


  Tweet of the Day: Fangs for the Memories ——– I know, an incredibly lame pun. But sometimes you just have to roll with it, as did Diane Dooley in her post about the fading vampire (with a short story bonus!) Sure you can find vamps everywhere, but that’s the problem. They went from dark […]
