Weekend Roundup: November 16-22

    Tweet of the Day:  70 Years of Dogs ——- Another week of sparse posting, but not due to any lack of effort on my part. You see I have been quite busy this week, with my new YouTube series and with something else? What would that be? That’s right I entered and won […]

Absolute Write Novermber 2012 Blog Chain: National Mock Review Month

Tweet of the Day: What is Science Fiction for? ——- Starting Date: Monday, November 5, 2012 Open to all forum members, even after it starts! This month’s prompt: NaMoReMo (National Mock Review Month) In the spirit of NaNoWriMo, write a mock review of a writing project that you have done or would like to do. […]

Space for Rent: Male Voices in Women Spaces

Tweet of the Day:  Plot bunnies…or killer rabbits? —— Two recent posts I(here and here)  made me think about men and women and the social “spaces” each occupies. First, the concept of “Women Spaces” conjures areas where women where shoved to by men, be they schools, hospitals or kitchens. But that is not how modern […]

Lessons for the Aether: National Novel Writing Month

Tweet of the Day: Designing from the Bones- Otherworld ——- A strange post today, for it is All Hollow’s Eve as well as the day before National Novel Writing Month. What makes it even weirder is that if there is a time and place to learn about writing and what it takes to be a […]

NaNo 2011: Piling on the Dialogue

Tweet of the Day: The #1 Factor to Consider When Choosing a PoV Character ——– Back pain has slowed down my NaNoing but I’m still at it. I have discovered an interesting trend, my characters can’t shut the hell up! Every scene is talk, talk, talk and talk some more. I mean like dialogue, I […]

NaNo 2011: Ruins of Empire-Encyclopedia Galactica

Tweet of the Day: Are Your Dialogue Beats Repetitious? ——- More world building stuff, this time an “encyclopedia” of useful terms. Again, this is a reconstruction, since I lost the original some time ago. Now, in no particular order (and therefore defying the encyclopedic concept|) here are a few terms: Galactic Empire: Form of hereditary […]

NaNo 2011: Ruins of Empire-Timeline

Tweet of the Day: The Iceman Plot —— You may have noticed the dearth of post around here not to mention that this is not the regularly scheduled update to Necessary Heroes. You know the answer already: NaNo Instead I give you some background/world building info on the current project to wet your appetites. I […]

TV Tropes Monday: Jumped at the Call

Tweet of the Day: Did You Think I Can’t Feel? ——– Yes, finally back at semi-regular posting. Okay, no Sunday Tweet again. I have an honest excuse. NaNo. Took Saturday off which mean making up for lost time on Sunday. Good thing that I hit 10k with an hour to spare. And now back to […]

Weekend Roundup: October 30-November 5 + Blog Chain

Tweet of the Day: The 99 Miles of October ——– Mighty short week this one on account of my Interweb provider and their shoddy service.  No internet, no post. I guess I should just write them all in a day or so and them program wordpress to publish them on a daily basis, but the […]

NaNo 2011: Writing by Scene or by Wordcount

Tweet of the Day: Should You Ever Use Unusual Narrative Forms? ——- ——- I don’t like word counts. It’s the reason why I find NaNo so challenging. The idea of measuring my progress through how many words I have on the page is antithetical to how I work. I write through scenes, each as long […]
