June 2022 Update

Another slow month for me in May. Though I was able to return to rewrites on my novel, I still struggled with being sick for most of the month, until a round of mega antibiotics cleared up my sinus infection (or whatever was actually going on). I spent most of my time completing the minor revisions I talked about last month, shoring up my weaker scenes and fine-tuning the characterization early in

Mastering Your Mystery by Cheryl Bradshaw

Decent advice on writing mystery, EXCELLENT advice on publishing.

Personally, I wish this would have gone into more depth on writing mysteries. It felt lacking in the details I was looking for (except on the chapter about murder weapons/methods) to im

“Brother Cavil:

In all your travels, have you ever seen a star go supernova? ...

I have. I saw a star explode and send out the building blocks of the Universe. Other stars, other planets and eventually other life. A supernova! Creation itself! I was there. I wanted to see it and be part of the moment. And you know how I perceived one of the most glorious events in the universe? With these ridiculous gelatinous orbs in my skull! With eyes designed to perceive only a tiny fraction of the EM spectrum. With ears designed only to hear vibrations in the air. ...

I don't want to be human! I want to see gamma rays! I want to hear X-rays! And I want to - I want to smell dark matter! Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can't even express these things properly because I have to - I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid limiting spoken language! But I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws! And feel the wind of a supernova flowing over me! I'm a machine! And I can know much more! I can experience so much more. But I'm trapped in this absurd body! And why? Because my five creators thought that God wanted it that way!”
Ronald D. Moore

Orson Scott Card
“For children love is a feeling; for adults, it is a decision. Children wait to learn if their love is true by seeing how long it lasts; adults make their love true by never wavering from their commitment.”
Orson Scott Card, Pathfinder

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Diana Wynne Jones
“I think we ought to live happily ever after.”
Diana Wynne Jones, Howl’s Moving Castle

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The future, good or ill, was not forgotten, but ceased to have any power over the present. Health and hope grew strong in them, and they were content with each good day as it came, taking pleasure in every meal, and in every word and song.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
