Weekend Roundup: September 21-27

Tweet of the Day: The Writing on the Wall ——- “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry,” perfectly describes this weeks posting. It got to a good start on Sunday, but events beyond my control ensured that I ran out of steam by Tuesday. It happens, it happens often and it […]

Weekend Roundup: February 16-22

Tweet of the Day: Dragons, Wyverns and Lucifer in General ——- It has been…well a rather boring week. Yes, that explains the lack of posts, I think.

Space for Rent: Where the Story Takes You

Tweet of the Day: EOW Parade of Victory ——- Time for that old pet peeve of mine, consistency. I’ve written about this many times before, but I figured there was something missing. To wit, my insistence on sticking with the internal logic/consistency of a work could lead to the very death of the work. How […]
