It's New Year's Eve. It is. Here - that's Australia, down-under, southern side of the date-line. Summer. Hot. What does a person do on NYE? Okay, apart from panic about the passage of time, drink a bit too much, eat the things they'll suffer for on the morn - yes, apart from all that stuff? … Continue reading It’s a Wrap-[Up]
The words get put together in a pattern, and within that pattern is a call to respond. They do it, they sing, they whisper, they scream and curdle. Words are magic, they spell the reader, the speaker, the writer. The temptation they speak of will twist the recipient to the will of the words, embroil … Continue reading The Words Did it, You Can’t Blame Me!

What a wonderful idea! What a thoughtful gift!
Every now and then, I find a few minutes to create a graphic or two. After I finished with my Christmas sale images, I figured why not do a generic review reminder? One that hopefully won’t be a problem with Amazon, since it doesn’t mention anyone’s books specifically and doesn’t suggest giving a book in exchange for a review. I think this one should be fine. If you have a use for it, please feel to save it. I plan to use it on Twitter, etc, since I want to encourage readers to leave more reviews, period, for any author they like. Maybe this will help. Enjoy!
I think this needs to be said again … in fact, I might put it on an annual calendar as a reminder …
You have to speak. No one can hear you if you don’t or won’t say the words, do the thing, make your presence felt.

One post the other day talked about where the bullying mind-set came from, why people do it (can’t find it now…

Scene 1 (first draft of the new story): “Are you disputing the assessment, Ms Lomas?” Safi nodded once, lifted her chin, relaxed the tension in her back. “Yes, sir,” she pointed at the report on the desk. “I’m fully aware there may be some issues to deal with at a later stage, but it’s now … Continue reading Through a Glass Eye
Let me introduce you to the new person in the next story. Her name is Safi, and that's all she's willing to share at the moment. Why are you here, Safi? Well, I have a problem. Something's going down, I know a lot about what's going to happen, I know why they're going to do … Continue reading Meet the New Character: Safi

There is a question doing the rounds (#FPQ thanks, Fandango - I couldn't resist this one): “Is there a ‘blogging-you’ who is different from the real-world you? If so, how are the two ‘yous’ different? How has the ‘blogging-you’ evolved since you first started blogging?” I will read it as - is there a real you? … Continue reading I Am the Real …
