  • IAB at Books-A-Million

    Lynn Viehl’s If Angels Burn was on the shelves at the local Books-A-Million — five copies faced out. And when I left, one followed me home. 😀 Stop by the DARKYN site and post your IAB sightings. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Query Letters (That Made Me Writhe and Cringe in Horror)

    You’ll note that I’ve added a number of new weblogs to my recommended list. This one, however, is in a class by itself. Query Letters I Love, filed here under Editors because I don’t have a more appropriate place to put it, is a regularly updated collection of query letters for scripts. The “love” part…

  • Terry Schiavo Dead

    Story here. My sympathy goes out to her parents, who fought so hard to save their child’s life. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Magnificent Science

    Science fiction becomes fact when a paralyzed man regains control of a hand via an implant. This is by no means a finished technology, but it is — now — a real one. You should be able to hear me cheering from here. I’m thrilled. Link via Drudge. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Interesting Iraqi Info NOT in the News

    This is a forward I received from a friend of mine, who is a major in the Air Force. I’m posting it with permission and removing identifying information per request. It’s a fascinating bit of reading. —- Sent:Wednesday, March 30, 2005 1:22 PM Comments on speech made by MG Chiarelli at an AUSA dinner (I…

  • And Today (Cue John Denver, while the blossoms cling to the vine)

    Wait until I do the post for Tomorrow, and put the song from the ANNIE musical in your head. Don’t you just hate that? And then it’s there all day. "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya’ toMORrow …" … I’m so bad … Anyway, back to today. Today, 3095 more words of WFH1, as much of…

  • Yesterday (Cue Beatles’ Music)

    I finished WFH1 yesterday at about 3:30 PM, with 3125 words, both done and total. I like what I got, and it is fun writing. It’s very freeing to be somebody else for a while. Moved on to the LGD proofs, and got through chapter two with three mistakes found and corrected, and one so…

  • How Sensitive Are You?

    A neat test of the senses. I did pretty well, but it was a challenge. This link referred by my friend Keely. Download as PDFPrint Page

  • Lawnmower Revelations

    I have this problem. So I ended up mowing the whole two acres yesterday. Twice. Once at six inches to knock down the Monster Weeds (TM), and one at two to make it look like a lawn. I ended up cooking my pale blue-white Celtic hide to a fiery habañero-sauce red, too, because for some…

  • More from the Mailbag

    This is the last I’ll post on the Schiavo/ Schindler case. It’s a couple of letters I exchanged between a kind man who loves his wife and who is willing to think the best of people, and me. The nurse who saw what greedy relatives and lawyers can — and will — do. These are…
