You Are Here

Some of you are aware that I do this annual thing where I beg people for stories and then I put them together in an anthology. This year is no different! However, I’m veering from my normal path by opening up our submissions to everyone. Yes, that means you. Rather than restrict submissions from SFFWorld.com forum…

Writing and Sundry

Howdy Folks! (waves) It’s been some time since my last post, so I thought I would drop by to let everyone know I’m still alive. Are you? Since I managed to snag your attention, here are a few updates: I’m still writing. Not on the projects I had been earlier this year, but an important…

WhiteWashedOut

Today is the first day of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Hollywood has been preparing for this month by announcing film after film after film with white people playing Asians. To that end, we’ve teamed up with some of the minds behind #WeNeedDiverseBooks and comedian/actress Margaret Cho to launch a new movement to tell Hollywood […]…

Tell A Story Day is Wednesday April 27th — Annette Rochelle Aben

Every picture may tell a story but every person has a story to tell too! Stories of happiness, strength, courage, joy and even fantasy come from deep inside people in all walks of life. Sometimes these stories are written down in books and blogs so we can read them at our leisure. Some stories etch […]…

All the world is spam

The other day, I saw a TedTalk about spam. At least, I think it was a TedTalk. It was on YouTube so it could have just been a random YouTube video. Regardless, it was a talk about spam. Specifically, the kind of spam where someone informs you they have to transfer a huge sum of…

Visualizing Your Characters

If you hang out on readers’ forums long enough, you’ll start to see specific themes crop up time and time again. One of those is: Who would you cast in the movie adaptation of your favorite novel? Sometimes, the question hones in on specific books and characters. What inevitably comes of these discussions are the wide…

Writing Update #7

Howdy Folks, I hope this blog post finds you on a fine Sunday morning/afternoon/evening (depending on where you might be on this here planet, maybe even Monday morning). It feels as if I have been neglecting my blog after the non-stop posts in February during NewNoWriMo (remember that?). But really, posting once a month is…

My Write Club (part 2)

Hello Everyone, Earlier this week, I dashed off a quick post about myWriteClub.com. I was super busy, but excited about the (newly discovered) site and wanted to share. Plus, I find I do much better writing with people than alone. (Fancy that, I’m the classic introvert.) Anyway, the quickly formed plan was to let you all…

The Party is Over

Well, I’m done. And good riddance to NewNoWriMo. It has been a lot of fun, and I appreciate all the effort my fellow writers put into our collective efforts, but it was a lot of work. I shouldn’t complain though. I reached my goal of 17,400 words! Better yet, I finished the third episode of…

Day 29

Yes, folks, it’s the last day of NewNoWriMo!! For those of you who have made it this far, keep going! In less than 24 hours, you can rest, so give it your all RIGHT NOW. Write all day if you have to, but don’t stop until you see your goal in the rear view mirror….
