Research

I was just reading a post on another blog about spending too much time researching and getting bogged down in the actual writing part of the process. It reminded me of my long-suffering mother and how much time she’s saved me in the research process. I’ve stated in the past that she and I have […]

When it’s ok to be a technophobe

I am a first-adopter. Apple comes out with something new – I’m there. Today the Chromecast thingy came out… I bought one for the television downstairs. But, there is a time to leave technology behind; unless I’m writing for a tech journal, I use as little technology as possible. Imagine if you were reading a […]

Does the Apocalypse Always Have to Start in New York?

I’ve hit a wall – and I think my setting is working against me. I love my city, but Boston has let me down. I need more seediness, and this place can’t supply it – and my mind can’t conceive it. I originally wanted to set the bulk of my novel here in Boston. One […]

The Media Fast

You guys probably shouldn’t even read it…   There is a tendency lately for people to feel that their actions and words are above anyone’s scrutiny. This idea is absolutely absurd. We all […]

What’s in a name?

I was listening to a podcast the other day about language (’cause I’m all nerdy like that) and they were talking about language changing over time. I can’t remember which podcast, because I listen to a lot of them. But, one of the words they mentioned is “eek-name.” The word “eek” was Old English for […]
