Hello there! I’m a longtime reader of the comic and a fairly large fan, and as my way of thanks for brightening my day with your bootlegging feline shenanigans for the past four-or-something years, I wanted to share this with you; the first track of what I hope to eve...
Guy de Maupassant, one of France’s most prolific writers of the 19th century, is also the father of the modern short story, for good reason. He wrote over three hundred short stories throughout his career, with most of them being written during the 1880s. While most of these dealt with mundane o... read more »
It’s a quiet Sunday morning and after two cups of coffee, baking oatmeal cookies, and humming Gray Skies Are Gonna Clear Up, I am getting ready to head out to my first barbecue of the season. The weather isn’t being overly cooperative, but the wind is frisky and so here’s hoping we see some sunsh...read more »
I've realized, in a couple different ways over the past two weeks, that my Publishing 101 posts caused some pain and/or offense to some that read them. Several folks read them as a declaration that I thought that my publishing process was the only right way to publish, or the on... read more »
لم أنسَ إلى الآن، كيف كان يفتى لنا أحد قادة الجماعات، بأنه لا يجوز الصلاة خلف حالق اللحية، فإذا دخلنا إلى المسجد ورأينا الإمام حليقاً، قعدنا خلف الصفوف حتى يفرغ من صلاته، ثم قمنا إلى صلاتنا خلف أميرنا، الذى يمكن أن يكون أقل علماً أو حفظاً لكتاب الله.

I have read a few comments on Fire along the lines of 'why do they have modern tech but use rudimentary weapons; it doesn't make any sense'. This surprised me as an issue because, to me, it makes perfect sense, so I wanted to explain my reasoning here.
'Fire' arms makes me think fire - the only re... read more »

Oh my god! How dare you review my literary masterpiece, you’re not even a proper reviewer! You’re just someone unqualified person off the street who read my book!
So, some authors out there seem to think that it’s okay to look down on “unprofessional reviews”. I don’t know WTF an “unprofessional... read more »
I just came across an article about an Australian politician who was apparently attacked by a kangaroo and I started thinking about a possible link to former president Jimmy Carter.
Apparently, Shane Rattenbury, Australian Capital Territory municipal services minister, was out jogging when he star...read more »

Romance, dystopian, science fiction, etc. A friend recently made the comment that most writing today is “post genre.” The more I write, and the more I read, the more valid that comment seems to be.
What started me thinking about this subject is what happened to my nove...read more »

Soooooo. You know how sometimes you have this idea of how you want a story to end and then you get to the point of writing it and suddenly you just can’t because the story bores you to tears? I know most of you don’t because you don’t write books, but this happens. Protip: if you are bored writin...read more »

One question a day will be addressed, for as long as it remains interesting to me, and the questions keep coming.
Today’s question was asked by Priscilla França.
Priscilla: Why do you kill so many of the characters I love most in Fables? Are you trying to be like George RR Martin?
Bill: Not at all....read more »
