Julie Isaac & The eBook Revolution

Posted on March 19, 2012. Filed under: eBooks | Tags: , , , , , |

Whenever I have worked on this blog, I have followed the work of Julie Isaac, another WordPress blogger & author.  Via Twitter, I discovered that she has a site called Join the eBook revolution.  Given that the demand for paper based articles is shrinking, and the number of people competing to be heard as writers is (probably) increasing, eBook is probably the first medium I will try for publishing a more “serious” (polished, actually) effort.  If you are following the same strategy, you might consider reading Join the eBook revolution.

Absence

Posted on March 12, 2012. Filed under: Blogging, Life After Nano | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Funny thing about the internet, when a commentator is absent, you do not know why.  Were I to die, or anyone else that writes a blog, chances are you would not know.  Oh, sure, the so-called “Professional Bloggers” would be missed, and some of their friends would likely know and shout the news to the world.  But, for the rest of us, particularly those of us who choose to make anonymous contributions, no one would know.  We would just disappear.

Whether or not our comments would survive us remains uncertain.  Would we always have servers?  Would someone always make our words of wisdom, or idiocy, available?  What does “always” mean, anyway?  For the next twenty years?  For the lifespan of those who knew us personally?  In perpetuity in some gargantuan archive that would become ever unwieldy until some knew paradigm rethought how we view how we think?

All I know it that I have not posted here since early 2011, so I thought I would post SOMEthing.  And, no, I have not given up on that novel I was working on that seems perpetually stuck at 60%  I think, though, that I have decided to start writing it backwards.  Start with two or three, or more, endings and write back attempting to make them converge somewhere in the middle, somewhere near where I got stuck.

Day 6 First Restart

Posted on November 6, 2010. Filed under: Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Somehow missed yesterday.  Now need 3,000 words to catch up.  Ooops.

Update:  Amazingly, I did it.  I’m caught up, but not much more.  I had hoped to be a day or two ahead this weekend, but as of now I’m only barely ahead.

Maybe tomorrow….

Websites of the Day:

http://blog.writingspirit.com/

http://www.nablopomo.com/ (National Blog Posting Month)

and http://www.whatisgooglewave.com/

And, a question, when you are doing Nanowrimo stuff, tweeting on Twitter about it, blogging on your blog, do you find that your searches are really different, and what you read is really different, from what you do the rest of the time?
