The “Hyper-Online Fan” Is Here To Stay

The “Hyper-Online Fan” Is Here To Stay

I feel that given a reader devotes their valuable time to and money on your tale that they do have a right to their opinion (even a bitter one) and you as the author must NEVER forget that...

As I continue to recover from our return flight here to England on Tuesday into Wednesday, I thought I’d have some fun and have a scroll for the first time in several months at what some of them are talking about…

As I am revising and editing, and nearing the end of my latest, I thought I would pause and get a sense of what some readers - rather than writers - are out there tweeting about...

Scrolling The Tweets…

Scrolling The Tweets…

It has been a while since I last did, so I thought I would here offer my reactions to some tweets I plucked from a few scrolls of that platform's (which I no longer use, as you may know) writers and #writingcommunity...

To Do, Or Not To Do

To Do, Or Not To Do

A change of pace: an afternoon (UK time) post. Why? Because I have seen a few things in recent days I thought worth addressing here and I also chose just to surprise you at a new time. LOL!

“Her eyes…”

“Her eyes…”

A few minutes of authoring fun.

These were written by a few of literature's great authors, who have been read for generations so far and are likely to be read for many generations to follow us.

Yesterday was something of a "milestone" in writing the planned new book. I have all of the chapters "framed" from beginning to end...

No human being *is* ever, and no group *are* ever, a virus.

I open Twitter regularly to find brave retweets about not messin' with Texas, and Jefferson quoters telling us this is all invented. It's just a bit of flu, they declare. We all gotta die of "sumthin", they add...

Set To “Private”

Set To “Private”

It was disgraceful. It was also a punch in the face reminder of what I had despised about Twitter and why I had decided to back away from it some years ago.

Three Points

I have only to look at the origin countries of my daily visitors. Often I find myself asking, "Who are you? Why are you here? I have never sold a book in your country (insofar as I know)?" Usually I never learn the answers to such questions.
