Weird Science in the News – 180818

Urban natural setting

This post starts with a warning. It's a little depressing. Heavy, even. I actually meant to publish it weeks ago but didn't thinking about adults insulting infants, mass extinction, and animals stuffing their homes with human trash, and that only covers half of the topic! Well, we are at Shadows in Mind. Here are the… Continue reading Weird Science in the News – 180818

Tweeting Again -and- Oh, Horror!

Quick Updates Tweeting Again I can give ❤️s again! Twitter emailed me an apology for the inconvenience of locking me out of then restricting my account.

Restricted from Giving ❤️s

Blanked-out profile with message from Twitter: "Caution: This account is temporarily restricted"

Howdy, y'all. Happy Saturday? I'd be happier if I stuck in shadows without my consent.

Goodbye, Camp NaNoWriMo 2018

2018 Winner of Camp NaNoWriMo header

When I posted "NaNoWriMo 2018: Late to Camp", we were already in the second week of July. I'd committed to a new project and no cabin for encouragement. Feeling alone and behind schedule makes for an intimidating start. Fortunately, Camp is far more relaxed than the big NaNoWriMo challenge in November. A few people joined… Continue reading Goodbye, Camp NaNoWriMo 2018

Self-Propellent to a Mile High Convention

Hello, This is a different type of post than I've written before. Below is an excerpt from my GoFundMe fundraiser. MileHiCon  is an annual literary speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy) event in Colorado. It's not a huge event like WorldCon (a literary event) or ComicCon (for comics, often focused on speculative fiction), making it… Continue reading Self-Propellent to a Mile High Convention
