  • Pavlova: A Sweet Cloud Confection

    Pavlova: A Sweet Cloud Confection

    I had the privilege of attending a friend and fellow author‘s citizenship ceremony this last month, which was an amazing thing to see. Those of us who are born into it don’t think enough about the privileges we take for granted. The individual liberties, freedoms, and responsibilities we bear. It is our solemn duty to…

    ETWYRT: Kate Paulk

    Mirror-posted at the Otherwhere Gazette: Index page for the Eat This While You Read That! recipes is here. If there’s one thing I am sure Kate Paulk is tired of hearing, it is: ‘When is the next con book coming out?’  So I won’t say it. I’ll just look hard in her direction and think…

  • Hugo Nomination Time

    Brad Torgerson has created an excellent list over at his blog, the Sad Puppies slate. As I said last year, this is a great guideline, but nominate the works you think best. Not most likely to win, BEST. Once, the Hugo was an award that meant something, and now, it’s handed out as a party…

  • Monday Maunderings

    I’m really tired this morning. Predictably (for me) I was sick over the weekend, including what I think was a migraine on top of a cold, yesterday. I was largely incoherent for most of the day yesterday, in too much pain to sleep, so I read. I can’t always read when I’m sick, and it…

    Interesting articles

    I’m busily writing today. I was joking around that I was going to write until my hands fall off, and although that might be a slight exaggeration, I do plan to have sore fingers and wrists later. I’ve done 1500 words before breakfast, which gives me a great start. So rather than a lengthy blog…

  • Alterations and Tailoring

    I was thinking this morning about fanfiction, plagiarism, and renovating vintage clothing into something beautiful. I read Mad Genius Club almost daily, as I find what the other bloggers there have to say about writing and publishing interesting and often useful. Kate Paulk’s post this morning about filing the serial numbers off, followed by Amanda…

  • Impatience

    I was thinking today about this, wanting what I want, when I want it. Right now, I want to have the book I’m reading read, so I could write you, my beloved readers, a review of it. It’s enjoyable, if off my beaten path of genre, but it’s not fair to review a partially read…

  • A Few of My Favorite Things

    A Few of My Favorite Things

    It is a cold and snowy day outside, the kids are mostly occupied with electronic diversions, and I am studying for my bones practical, so I don’t have the brain power for a opinion post. I thought I would share some links to my favorite geek diversions, instead. Scholck Mercenary, along with several other webcomics,…
