An Eccentric Redhead's Noms and WTFckery

paigeylou:

Recently, I was hunted down and physically attacked by someone I’d had altercations with online. The link explains the story very briefly, and it urges you all to be more careful about the information you make available online.

On Tumblr especially, people are so quick to say they’ll give out phone numbers and whatnot. STOP doing this. You may meet the wrong person, and this or far worse could happen.

Warning for photos showing what happened to me. I realise showing photos of me in my very recognisable work uniform kind of defeats the purpose, but it’s important.

Over the weekend, this article by author Kathleen Hale was published in the Guardian. In it, she describes her deteriorating mental stability and her obsessive compulsions that led to ultimately to her stalking a reviewer to her home in person and to her workplace via several invasive phone…

Give up.

I’m talking about writer’s block.

Every writer gets it from time to time. It’s one of the few things you can say everyone gets!

You might be able to write a wonderful horror novel about what happens to small children who kick…

In case you’ve been under a rock this past week, here’s a rundown of something that has people on twitter buzzing:

When Authors Go Off the Deep End: John Grisham, Kathleen Hale and Margo Howard #WTFCKERY

When Authors Go Off the Deep End: John Grisham, Kathleen Hale and Margo Howard #WTFCKERY

Grab some popcorn because the WTFckery factor is at an all-time high this week. Three authors have invoked the WTFckery to the highest order. I should also throw The Guardian in there because their lack of research of editing regarding one of the authors they offered their space to (or to get on their soapbox) has people shocked, appalled and disgusted.

1. Let’s start with John Grisham. On…

Guest Author Post: Rejection versus Redirection by Torie James

Rejection: the dismissing or refusing of a proposal, idea, etc.

Redirection: to change the direction or focus of.

Back in May of 2013, I took a deep breath and submitted my first full length novel to Breathless Press. Clicking “send” on my laptop never seemed so tough as it did that day and the moment I did it, I wanted to jump into the screen and grab it back.

What if it lacked depth?
