Rubber Stamp

I am a bureaucrat by day. I'm all about red tape. People as busy as I am don't have mentors or graduate classes. I have the library though. How ironic that the brainy (ish) kid never got her Ph.D. . . .

Mystery writer Jock Skone arrives in Fleckford, a small village on the English/Welsh border, where he instantly falls…

. the photograph tree with blue.

envy the rural living.

make some.

walk the dunes
each day,
know the places,
to stop,
where berries grow.

where the photograph tree
knows,
what lays beneath.

look at each gentle place,
to keep in a pocket
of love,for that rainy
day, you do not go.

then in mine, in honour
walk the place in mind.

sbm.

How Do You Sound?

How do you sound…when you speak to others? How do you sound?

Dry Drunk, Part 7

Part 6 of Dry Drunk is posted here. This is Part 7.

A work of fiction.

The ward is on lockdown. Somebody snapped and attacked an orderly. I saw the whole thing happen in front of me. He'd been pacing angrily up and down the corridors, sweaty, with an ashen face. Detox. It had only been a matter of time. What we had been observing in his behavior unnerved us, because what…

[NETWORKING FOR INTROVERTS] What Makes a Great Blog?

When I teach Blogging for Beginners at the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, we get everyone's blogs set up, but that’s the easy part. Learning how to use Wordpress, Blogger, or SquareSpace will get your blog online, but it won’t make you a great blogger. Great blogs have five things in common—quality design, great content, clear layout, consistent posts, and audience…

When?

When will you take that step? That next step in the attainment of your goal. You know what I’m talking about- that thing you want so much. That job, or that new place to live, or that relationship, or whatever it is. It’s the thing that wakes you up in the middle of the night saying “hey, I’m here”

It’s that…

The Art of Submission: Creating a Submission Wish List

One of the things that I often hear people talking about when it comes to submissions is having a "wish list," a list of journals and magazines you want to publish in, in order of difficulty.
