Satan’s Game

I have a love I haven’t spoken much about on this blog. That seems a shame, so it’s time to rectify the situation. I talk a lot about writing; how I do it, why I do it and what I think about it in general. Most of the writing I talk about is my ‘serious’ …

Shopping in the Digital Age

It seems every time Amazon does something (including getting a little press), haters come out of the woodwork to lob disdain in their direction. Twitter exploded when they announced their market for published fanfiction. And while I have strong opinions on that issue, I’m not going to boycott Amazon over it. I get annoyed when …

Who Are You Writing For?

I haven’t written about writing in awhile. Not because I don’t have anything to say, because I worry talking too much about it will annoy people. But I’ve noticed a lot of talk about this topic recently, and I feel I can speak from personal experience. I follow Neil Gaiman on Tumblr. People tend to …

Slow-Cooker Delights

Slow-Cooker Delights

Awhile back I mentioned I live by my slow cooker. There’s something appealing about throwing a bunch of ingredients in there in the morning and having a meal when we get hungry in the evening. What I love most is modifying recipes to taste and still ending up with an excellent dinner with minimal effort. …

The May 2012 launch of the long awaited Diablo sequel introduced video game fans to the insidious Error 37, which looks to become a staple of the industry.

Those Who Follow

I’m not a social media guru. I can’t and won’t claim to be. I’ve been poking around the Twitterverse for about a year, and I’ve learned a lot. There are tons of posts on how you can grow your Twitter following; this isn’t one of them. People use Twitter for a variety of reasons. Some …
