Don’t Be A Writer

Welcome back! I’ve been working hard on a few novel ideas, and now I’m back to blogging! I’ll post an update on my writing soon, but until then… Don’t be a writer! Not really. Ok, be a writer. Here’s my point. When I was younger I wanted to be a writer, and I wanted to Read More…

We’re Podcasting!

My writing group, the Inkhorn Society, now has a podcast! There are five members on the podcast, and there are more members will likely be part of it in the future. Our first episode is up, and we look at Halli Lilburn’s piece, Great Aunt Maud. I think we did a good critique on the Read More…

Till

I haven’t posted in a long time, as I’ve been finishing up some work. More on that later in the next few weeks as I have a big announcement regarding the Inkhorn Society! But till then… let’s talk about the word till. I always squirm a bit when people use the word till in their Read More…

Asterisms may refer to a small group of stars that aren’t a constellation yet still have a name. That’s not what I’m writing about today. I’m writing about asterisms in a piece of writing. Those are the three asterisks in a row that denote the passing of time in a story, or sometimes minor breaks in Read More…

Gender Neutral Pronouns

I know what you’re all thinking. “What does this Male Hetero CIS think of gender neutral pronouns?” Yes, I will acknowledge that I don’t really have any skin in the game, and that I’m privileged enough to have my gender be considered the neutral pronoun for the last few thousand years.

My wife often wonders how my mind works. I get my ideas from all over the place, and I’m a little bit weird. Adequately weird, I think. A few weeks ago I was feeling restless. I’ve been working on rewrites for a long time now. Months, really, and I was feeling I’d like to take Read More…
