It’s really no secret that I’m a fan of Adam Dreece‘s work. So, I’d like to offer anyone who slips through here this Valentine’s Day (or any other, to be frank) a gentle nudge to make Adam Dreece’s blog part of one’s writer’s arsenal (and his books part of one’s ebook or paperback library).
So, I’ve been griping about burnout, which is a bit more intense than basic writer’s block. It’s the equivalent of my muse telling me that we need to see other people for now before it moved out. But I definitely think that when my muse returns (albeit petulantly, I expect), I’ll be appeasing my muse with some of Adam’s advice from his most recent web journal entry: Getting Unstuck (for authors).
Happy Valentine’s Day to all and to your muses–present or on a break.
And as a long-distance dedication to my own muse, Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance–because my muse was perfectly happy to let me write over 30 of them in 10 years without burning out:
Am I . . . Cool?
So, I got the head’s up that Altered States got a mention at Hacker News. Very awesome. Indie as fsck, by the way. (Dunno what fsck is? Google it.) Much like in writing life, however, that post got lost in the daily grind of some pretty cool stuff.
#MondayBlogs is a great way to get a snapshot not only of what happens to all of us but what happens to each of us. Personal journeys and public discussions abound; great thoughts and insights and advice sit behind an unassuming little hash mark.

Well, I am still working on Man and Brother, which does not appear to be coming out this year. I’d like to explain the delay, especially since I’ve been working on it over the past year and have just not had it come together as quickly as the previous book.
