  • Time Gone By – Part 23 – Science Fiction

    This is a work of fiction. “What’s that?” Freckles asked, pointing to the steering wheel of the old car which had been mounted on the wall beside the dashboard. Something that looked like an electical spark was moving slowly around. “I don’t really know, but it’s not dangerous. I can put my hands all over…

  • December Free Fiction Schedule

    Because I’m writing a Christmas story, there will be a few changes to my writing schedule this month.

  • A Letter to NaNoWriMo

    Dear NaNoWriMo, I’ve accepted your challenge in both 2019 and 2020. Writing a novel in thirty days has got to be fun, otherwise, why would so many people do it? In 2019, I wrote in private, so I didn’t worry about typos, plotholes, or any of the other annoying aspects of writing. I wrote the…

  • A bit about December

    Today is Change-it-up-Tuesday, and I’m planning a little change for the month of December. For the rest of October, I’ll post a part of Time Gone By on Fridays.

  • Surviving Site Changes

    A few days ago, I changed my WordPress site plan because I wasn’t using the advanced features I had. The downgrade had to both keep my existing content, but also revert to an older version of my website. I decided it was time for a change of theme, and I soon rebuilt my menu and…

  • Only a Month and a Half to Go

    I can’t believe there’s just under seven weeks until NaNoWriMo starts on November 1. Every day, I’m going to post what I’ve just written. I won’t have time to fix typos and might even miss plotholes. I’ve created this page so I can keep updating you without needing to find and link to old posts.

  • Nothing’s Blocking Me! – using the coolest WordPress Editor

    To start “change-it-up Tuesday,” I thought it might be fun to begin a new weekly feature using the WordPress Block Editor. My computer’s pretty old and a little “crashy,” so I use the WordPress app on an iPhone. The app doesn’t quite match the desktop version for power yet, but they add things all the…
