Weekend Writing Warriors/#8Sunday/05-17-2015/-Trust

Welcome to another entry into the Weekend Writing Warriors blog chain. This snippet is taken from my WiP, Lessons of War. Three hundred years after the death of the last Emperor of the Third Dynasty, the Throne of Stars, the seat of the galactic empire sits empty. But the recent death of the Duke and […]

Space for Rent: The Internet as a Self-Demonstrating Article

    Tweet of the Day: Women Destroy Science Fiction: Texts in Coversation ——- This one will be short, I promise. Wait long enough around any social site, specially one with a comment section and it turns into a self-demonstrating article. Write a post about racism? Racist show up to spew racist slurs or deny […]

Space for Rent: The Many Questions of Injustice

    I wanted to write a concise opinion piece of the Trayvn Martin case, but I could not. The more I thought about it the more questions I had about it, specially the response to the verdict: Why, Richard Cohen, is a hoodie the universal uniform of your fears? Why, commenter at any give […]

Lessons from the Aether: Babylon 5

Tweet of the Day:  All Alone in the Night: When Babylon 5 Invented 21st Century Fandom ——– Ah, Babylon 5, the quintessential sci-fi series of the 90s.  There are a lot of reasons for it, some which can be seen if you follow the link above. But this is about applying lessons to writing and […]

Three Questions

Tweet of the Day: Character Trait Entry: Modesty ——– The very act of reading involves, at some basic level, analysis of what is being read. And with that analysis comes a series of questions which can help/hinder the narrative. They come in three broad varieties: Questions that must be answered. Questions that may be answered […]

Voting Away Your Rights

Tweet of the Day: Fire & Ice: The August 2012 Blog Chain ——– This will be a short but politically motivated post. Why do people vote their rights away? What compels people to give away their protections against abuse from the State? Why is it that those that claim to be for freedom the loudest […]

Space for Rent: But You’re Not….

Tweet of the Day: I am a woman who games, not a “gamer” girl” ——– I’m not gay. I’m not a woman. I’m not Africa-American. And so on and so forth. So why have I used this space to discuss issues relating to groups I am no part of? It boils down to rights: mine, […]

Sunday Award Show

Tweet of the Day: Aesir Lega (XI) ——– Seems I picked up a couple of awards. Interesting. Well then lets open the fist envelope, shall we? The Versatile Blogger Award comes from the lovely Diane Carlisle. Nice! Oh and it comes with some instructions….eye of newt…first drop of blood from a vi…wait that can’t be […]

Weekend Roundup: March 4-10 + Tagged!

Tweet of the Day: Tagged! ——- The week that Mass Effect 3 hit the shelves and scrambled my mind, for a lack of a better term. I won’t say more until others have played the game but it left me…I don’t know.  Anyway, I did get some writing done, although I skipped Thursday for some […]

To Self-Publish Or Not To Self-Publish

Tweet of the Day: Endings and Modern Authors ——– That is the question, specially in the age of digital publication. Should you stick to the tried and true methods or cut through the red tape and plunge yourself into the icy waters of do-it-yourself publication? What about the costs? Marketing? Competition? Time allotment? Quality control? […]
