Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 435-438

Hi Everyone! Sorry for my silence the last couple days. I actually have been writing, but I haven’t had time to do blog posts, because I’ve been buried in a rotating gamut of five things: Recording Reading Writing ‘Rithmatic — Well, not arithmetic especially, but compliance. Lots of verifying records… Continue reading

Free Fiction: The Open Source Woman

Every month, you will find a new free short story here for your reading pleasure–after which, it will diminish to a sample. For April 2017, I’m proud to present you with The Open Source Woman, the first in what may become a series of hardSF tales examining life in a… Continue reading

Blogging Kabrakan/Antithesis, Day 434

Yesterday, I promised you an update on the other book I read cover-to-cover this week. It was one that–like the Iles books I’ve been raving about the last few months–dragged me straight through in one sitting (well, okay, one and a half). This one wasn’t Greg Iles, though, but another… Continue reading

Why would I do this? First, because it’s true. The world… Continue reading

Last Chance For Cool Writing Stuff!

Well, here we are, at the end of the year, and all things, good and bad, do close out at the end. Some of them, like the calendar, roll over and renew. Others will be gone forever. Some of those things we might bid “good riddance,” but some of them…well,… Continue reading

Ending the Year With A Bang

2016 isn’t the only thing winding up this week. This week officially marks the end of two other big events here at my secret headquarters on the Oregon Coast. Firstly, we are now in the final days of the NaNoWriMo Writing Tools bundle. If you’re a writer (or know a… Continue reading

Blogging Antithesis/Kabrakan, Day 296

More action-packed days here in the back of beyond! The last few days my attention has been divided between finding ways to get enough exercise amid sporadic (but severe) rainstorms and working to get back on track with my writing. And it’s working. I’m up a goodly amount in the… Continue reading
