Remarkable Objects – A Four Part Murder Mystery

I’ve been eager to get this out for a while now. This was the story I wrote last year when I decided to challenge myself to daily writing. The result was just short of 20k, almost a novella. Not bad at all. This year is different: NaNoWriMo is real, and different than I imagined. It…

The good news is…

Gutenberg is actually getting easier to use. Feedback will do that. Feedback during the writing process, however, is another story. I suggest that while you’re writing, just do it. Don’t let anyone else actively tell you how to tell your story. Instead read a lot and pay plenty of attention and over time you’ll understand…

“Skitcher” now live @ Medium.com

Right out of the gate on schedule, “Skitcher” is available to read free at Medium.com! Details, right? If you enjoyed last week’s story (or any of them, thus far), here’s another! Here’s a sample: The hoots and hollers of the crowd thinned, and behind blasting plate was muted entirely. No one around — who could smell — minded the…

Remember that schedule?

Whilst digging more deeply into the always less buggy Gutenberg editor for WordPress, I have cobbled together an announcements page for the release schedule of short stories going up to Medium on Mondays. That’s it! Toodles for now.

If I had to guess…

So Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is a hard sell. Given its subject matter, I’m not surprised. Maybe a little disappointed… but I approached that work with no less dedication than any other. Thankfully, I won’t be publishing anything that gritty in the future. No promises, though. My short stories can get a little real, in…

New Story @ Medium: “Hard Lines and Code”

As promised, I’ve another new short story for y’all available at Medium, so drop what you’re doing and read it! …kidding! Though I’ll admit that’d be a nice sentiment. Here’s a link to the story followed by a sample: By the Pillars, who knows how long that woman has been fighting the good fight. She…

Story Schedule: Good To Go

I’ve prepared my Medium story schedule and laid everything out until the middle of December. By that point I’ll know what put more attention into. I’d rather not post stories that don’t have natural endings. So, every Monday there will be a new short story – and one in four parts – posted first thing…

Me at Medium

First of all WordPress needs to stop buggin’ me to “try Gutenberg” when I’m already using it, though I suppose it can’t tell… feh. I expect too much of technology, most of the time. Speaking of expectations … I guess that’ll have to do as a segway. Which, by the way is a word, thanks,…

Minor Edits

Soft Hearts, Hard Memories hasn’t been … shall I say, popular … though it does appear to enjoy interest among a certain demographic… what it needed was some editing. Just some typographical stuff here and there. That’s one of the challenges of being ones own editor and publisher. Not that I expect my work to…

Why I’m Saying “No Thanks” to Doctor Who as a Woman

You see, if the Doctor can become female, why bother? Why not do both? Or neither? Once you start down that rabbit hole, there is no end. What does anything matter if being female, or being male, has no implication or affect on the fabric of humanity?
