Plans for May

April was another busy month, with progress slow but steady. I have made some editing progress, but mostly I have been busy trying to revamp my publishing company. And I am pleased to say, that Ash Tree Media is now up and running! There is still quite a bit of work to do, but IContinue reading “Plans for May”

Plans for April

March has been a long, exhausting month. Progress has been made, and it has been hard won. Nevertheless, I have managed to make a number of revisions and edits to books both old and new, as well as to get another short article written. I have also made some very big plans for April.

My Ten Favorite Women Authors

In case you weren’t aware (I wasn’t until a couple years ago), March is Women’s History Month. So, in honor of the occasion, here are ten ladies of literature I think deserve some attention for their contributions to the written word in order, and with web links where applicable:

Plans for March

February has been a very interesting month indeed, and fairly productive as well. I finally began recording my first audiobook, worked a bit on a rough draft, reviewed a couple of manuscripts, and made a few tweaks here and there to older works. Finally, and perhaps most exciting of all, I will officially be vendingContinue reading “Plans for March”

Redacted: When Editors Go Too Far

I recently had an article published in a magazine. Wonderful news, of course. It is always nice to know that others deem your work worthy of publication. However, on seeing the article in question, I was rather disappointed to find that some of my main arguments (this was an opinion piece) appeared to have vanished!Continue reading “Redacted: When Editors Go Too Far”

Plans for February

January started out rough, but by the end things cleared up a bit, and I was able to accomplish most of my goals. Minor progress was made on a rough draft, a couple loose ends from 2021 were tied up, and some major changes to another project were laid out. This February, I will beContinue reading “Plans for February”

Happy New Year!

Greetings all, and happy new year! May 2022 prove tenfold better than 2021…or at least no worse. I don’t know about you all, but December was pretty awful for me. Between dealing with an annoying bug of some sort for the last couple weeks and just general chaos created by the holidays, I was ableContinue reading “Happy New Year!”

Plans for December

November was, as expected, a mild month. I partly revised a novella for next year, continued my current rough draft, and completed yet another rough drawing. This month I hope to wrap up this year’s projects. I will make one final drawing, review an anthology I started last year (as well as a couple booksContinue reading “Plans for December”

25 Songs That Would Make Great Story Titles

Here’s one just for fun. I’ve always been something of an audiophile (as those who have read my “25 Memorable Quotations” post have probably guessed), and I can’t tell you how many times a great line from a song, or even the song title itself, has come in handy when coming up with titles forContinue reading “25 Songs That Would Make Great Story Titles”

Plans for November

October was a phenomenal month. I made progress on my rough draft, reviewed another book thoroughly for next spring, created yet another drawing for next winter’s book, partly revamped an old short story/novella for possible publication this winter or next spring, and worked on my ongoing linguistic project besides. In addition, I am pleased toContinue reading “Plans for November”
