Writing Session

Consecutive Daily Writing Count: 205
Magic Spreadsheet Points: 19,945

There was no actual writing session today. Or yesterday. Why is that, do you ask? Because I’m done. I finished the first draft of Everlasting, my very first novel. As of Sunday I wrote something like two hundred and fifty words and realized that there was nothing else left to write. I could have extended the…

Sexism in SFWA (and the world)

Sexism in SFWA (and the world)

You don’t have to look very far these days to see sexism but you do have to know what you are looking for. The problem is that most of us are effectively blind to it, both because it is kept behind close doors and  because it is hiding in plain sight. And when people, particularly women, call attention to it, they’re often labeled misogynist, or simply told to “laugh it off”. Even when sexism is…

I’ve seen the recent upcoming generations and at least a good portion of them are being weaned on tablets. Being on the web will make it very accessible for schools…

Muzzled the Musical

Never mind the premise, which seems both silly and awesome, the music is super catchy and the cast list is full of amazingly talented and funny people. Kevin Sorbo (Yes, Hercules/Captain Hunt), Lisa Foiles, Ashly Burch (Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’), Jeff Lewis (The Guild), several actors from the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, which I’ve never seen but is supposedly hilarious and…

This video is rather long, for an internet video, but well worth watching. It will help you understand an aspect of U.S. society you may or may not be aware of.

Consecutive Daily Writing Count: 89
Magic Spreadsheet Points: 3,908

Been a while. Sorry about that. As you can see I’ve added two new metrics. Consecutive Daily Writing Count (CDWC) is how many days consecutively I’ve written at least two hundred and fifty words. It’s related to the Magic Spread Sheet I talked about last post. Which brings me to Magic Spreadsheet…
