  • What is my free fiction about?

    I’ve been talking a lot about free fiction lately, but I’ve neglected to write “About the Story” blurbs for most of the pieces I’ve posted. To correct that oversight, here they are. Once you find one you like the sound of, click the link above to be taken to the page with links to all…

  • Fun with Free Fiction

    Back in April, I launched free short fiction on this site with The Choice. That piece was short, but over the months since, I’ve started writing longer pieces. Both finished stories and pieces in progress can be found on my Fiction page. As of this writing, the story called Lockdown has almost come to an…

  • Tomb – Revisited

    On July 23, I wrote this post about the word “tomb.” At the end of it, I used the phrase “rest in peace,” which reminded me of my favorite Edgar Allan Poe story — The Cask of Amontillado.

  • Revisiting why I Write

    On April 12, I wrote this post about why I write. It’s been a long time since then, and while I was rereading it, I noticed a mistake and an opportunity. The mistake was easily rectified: I wrote “words” instead of “worlds.” No biggie. The opportunity is also easy to take, so here it is:…

  • Looking back at Letters

    I’ve stopped writing letters as a regular feature, but I had a lot of fun with them. Here is the letters category page. I’ve been sitting here trying to think which letter is my favorite. For seriousness and sort of philosophy, it’s definitely the one to the Pacific Ocean. I’ve had to pick three “other”…

  • Why I Love to Write Letters

    Every Wednesday for a while now, I’ve been writing letters. Here’s why: it’s fun. I took the everyday inspiration course from Blogging University, and one of the suggested tasks was to write a letter as a blog post. I did so and then got hooked. Most are humorous, some are serious, and some are both,…

  • Remembering Accountability

    When I first heard the suggestion to add a page about what I was working on, I scoffed at the idea. I mean, what if I didn’t do what I said, and then all my readers waved goodbye and walked out the door, never to revisit my blog or consider buying my book? I don’t…
