"That's a mighty fine cape he had. Very spiffy," she said, changing the subject. She gave Graydon a once over, taking in the defined muscles even his armor couldn't fully hide. "Why don't you have one like that?"
Graydon's lip curled. "His cape is ridiculous. An opponent can grab it and strangle h... Read more of this blog post »

Colin Wright Colin Wright's blog:
We tend to use things to fill perceived gaps in ourselves and in our lives. Feeling unhappy? Buy a thing. Feeling incompetent? Buy a thing. Feeling incomplete in some currently unnamed way? This thing will complete you; buy one. We use new acquisitions, new things, to introduce change into our li... Read more of this blog post »

Jake Jackson Jake Jackson's blog:

So here we are, back at the beginning. 10 years ago I started writing fiction again after a 20 year hiatus. I write Sc-fi-fantasy adventures, in a specific universe with quantum concepts, ancient creatures and humankind spread across time and space. After writing 7 books (yes!), 15 short stories...

Nimue Brown Nimue Brown's blog:

I’ve been going to a Tai Chi class for a few weeks now. One of the ideas my teacher reminds us of every lesson, is the principle of giving about sixty percent. Don’t go for the maximum you can do. Don’t push your body. Don’t over-extend or try too hard. Just relax, and do about two thirds of what...

Nicola L.C. Talbot Nicola L.C. Talbot's blog:

For those of you who don’t know, I write both fiction and text books. These involve very different writing styles.

Creative writing involves metaphors, similes, double entendres, sub-text, hyperbole, synecdoche, litotes, aporia, aposiopesis, intertextuality and so on. Readers often enjoy discoveri...

The prompt for this week’s blog experience is What to read to learn about X. A little vague but I’m gonna take it to mean something to do with how we, as writers, do research. ( Fingers crossed I’m correct about this!)

Yay!  Another twitter rant!

Yay! Another plagiarism scandal!

This time, the ‘author’ claims that she worked with a ‘ghost writing’ partner she hired on Fiverr.

I’m calling bullshit! First…well, Fiverr is a TERRIBLE place to hire a professional GW. I say that *AS* a GW. I’ve been doing that on the...

A few weeks ago, on his podcast, Sam Harris interviewed the actor and comedian Stephen Fry. Early in the episode, the conversation took a long detour into the topic of mindfulness meditation.

WHO WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT?



The presidential primaries will soon be heating up, and the betting has already begun over which Democrat has the “money advantage,” who’s sufficiently “moderate,” and who can “beat Trump” (assuming he’ll be running again).

Pardon me, but if you want to know who will...

Майка ми печеше най-хубавия хляб, а аз – дете – отскубвах меката му вътрешност, смачквах я и правех фигурки на птици.

Хлябът на майка ми… Трохите бяха като снежинки и се топяха. Когато изсъхнеше, аз го ронех и го хвърлях на земята, а птиците кацаха да кълват.

There are certain places in our homes where we leave out items because we think it is more convenient. For example, we leave something on a counter because it is easier for us to grab it the next time we need it.

So, Mate and I were watching TV tonight and I had a sudden urge to talk about a book I turned in a month ago.

Bart D. Ehrman Bart D. Ehrman's blog:

Yesterday I pointed out all the passages in the Gospel of Mark that repeat, time and again, the idea that Jesus tried to keep his messiahship a secret.  He doesn’t allow the demons to identify him when he casts them out; when he heals people he strictly instructs them not to tell anyone; he teach...

Are you a good listener?

If you’re going to lead, you need to be. A 2018 article from Harvard Business Review states “managers who listen well are perceived as people leaders, generate more trust, instill higher job satisfaction, and increase their team’s creativity.”

In September 2001, the Bush administration launched the “Global War on Terror.” Though “global” has long since been dropped from the name, as it turns out, they weren’t kidding.

What happens when you've done everything right, but you can't pay your bills?

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
