Sometimes Writers Should Retreat

I wrote about three thousand words on a short story during my “writer’s retreat” at Pokagon State Park yesterday. The real reason for me being there is for a later time, but it was perfect weather for hanging around outside. At Pokagon you can do that at a picnic table, on the beach, in isolated spots or public shelters, or just sitting in the car looking over the scenery.

 

I’d planned to work on my new book project, which I’ll also explain at a later time, but I hadn’t gotten…

"Speed Trap", a Castle/Walking Dead fanfiction crossover. Seriously.

Well, I did say I’d post fanfiction to celebrate new writing milestones (and for fun!). So for the release of Slightly Off the Mark here’s an unusual crossover for you; I almost titled it “The Two Ricks”. One universe, as you’ll see, is in prequel territory.

 

 

Title: Speed Trap

Author: ozma914

Summary: Castle's road trip from Atlanta to New York gets sidetracked when Deputy Rick Grimes takes a bite out of crime.…

Making a Living at Art, and Other Fantasies

            The good news is, thousands of writers report they’re making a pretty good living.

Unfortunately, that’s a proverbial iceberg tip, being held up by several hundred thousand writers deep underwater. Have you ever tried breathing while being held underwater by thousands of writers?

The median income for authors is less than the amount they spend on computer equipment, Starbucks membership cards, and books about how to write for a living.

Now, I’m not telling…

Off the Mark, and On Video

My video show page is up at Scher Maihem Studios. Yeah, you heard that right! Listen to my March column, “A Good Day Having Written”, read by me (because we couldn’t afford James Earl Jones), with sound effects and animation by the same people who print me in the Kendallville Mall. I mean print my column, not dust me for prints … never mind.
