[image error]“Sofarende is at war. For twelve-year-old Mathilde, it means food shortages, feuding neighbors, and bombings. Even so, as long as she and her best friend, Megs, are together, they’ll be all right.
But the army is recruiting children, and paying families well for their service. If M...Read more of this blog post »

Trying something a little different (and fun) this week. I’m reading through an article from The Independent called “22 Lessons from Stephen King on How to Be a Great Writer” and giving my own, off-the-cuff opinions of his writing advice. Do I actually disagree with him about every...Read more of this blog post »
Q: Several months ago one of my former employees, who’d left our agency, returned as my immediate supervisor. It’s been hell ever since.
Before his return, I had been respected and allowed to function semi-autonomously. I’d myself been a supervisor, overseeing one employee until he left and manag...Read more of this blog post »

Y’all remember around 2003, the media started propagandizing for gay marriage? I don’t mean “reporting on the emerging movement in favor of gay marriage”; that would have been entirely understandable. I’m talking about openly advocating for it, and ignoring counterarguments. I can remember as far...Read more of this blog post »
Dicen los expertos que una web debe renovarse, como mínimo, una vez al año. Ya aviso: si yo tuviera que hacer eso, no tendría web. Madre mía de mi vida, qué cantidad de trabajo me ha dado este cambio de look, no os lo podéis imaginar. Pero había que hacerlo. No porque los expertos digan nada ni... Read more of this blog post »

It feels very strange to be writing to you from a hotel room in Christchurch, New Zealand. We arrived around midday after what was for me a surreal bus journey from Greymouth on the West Coast, across Arthur’s Pass. The journey was surreal because I’d taken a travel sickness tablet which made me...Read more of this blog post »

For the past few weeks...or perhaps months...I've had this realization swirling through my mind. One that explains why I like some historical fiction better than others. One that most of the world (or at least the mainstream world) doesn't seem to share.
My thoughts on this started when I read a... Read more of this blog post »

Vamos a hacer un inciso para hablar de mi última lectura. Por Reyes pedí el recopilatorio de Hellblazer de Brian Azzarello.

Spoiler alert: This simplicity journey you are on is not about your countertops. That’s spring cleaning. Certainly decluttering is part of it.
