Passing The Torch, by Megan O’Russell
I grew up at the most amazing time. I know a lot of people would argue that the late 80’s/early 90’s were not a mecca for anything except poor fashion choices, but here are the perks that come with being an ’85 kid. The Little Mermaid was the Disney movie all my friends knew and […]

REWARDS OF A WRITING CAREER, by Rand Lee
The only thing that bothers me more than a rejection slip is a writing project I can’t seem to see through to the end. Sometimes this manifests as an inability to finish a piece I am writing; at other times this manifests as an inability to put the finished piece out there into the world. […]
LTUE Post Mortem, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
I’m going to be playing catchup over the next couple blog posts. I blame the government. Life the Universe and Everything was as good as ever from the point of view of the attendees. The only exception, of course, was their arbitrary rule that I can’t do my Plot a Novel in an Hour presentation […]

They are awful times when a person truly regrets his/her mistakes for neglecting the first […]
Uncommon Love: Unlikely Romances in Non-romance Genres, by James Wymore

LTUE, This Week, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi

I know those things blur together, but here, they blur […]
