Writing for a public audience is now in ways perhaps more "intimidating" than ever - because anyone in the world can be reading it within seconds.

Recalling Old “Friends”

Recalling Old “Friends”

Don't think we did not joke about this back then ourselves: Living as I did then in a New York City suburb, I recall my "friends" and I even then laughing about the absurd size of the characters' Manhattan apartments...

Not “They/Them”

Not “They/Them”

We (meaning all of us) simply need a new word for those who in the third-person singular assert to be neither "he" nor "she."

As long as I am not being libelled (which is very unlikely in an internet comment), I must accept anyone may post the most negative and even most vitriolic diatribes in dismissing what I author (and I know some have).

It took me only a few days to read all of "Bond." Part of the reason it was such a quick read, I suppose, is because clearly it is meant to be a quick read...

One Night Layover

One Night Layover

"You're not going to want to miss this show!" we are told. Well, I wish I had missed it.

The (Writing) Support Bubble

The (Writing) Support Bubble

Here we see examples of the social media "support bubble" writers must avoid at all costs...

Awakenings

Awakenings
