My schedule for Norwescon 35’s last day, and details on upcoming classes.
No panels! I’ve enjoyed the ones I’ve done so far, and they’ve all been jam-packed, so muchos kudos to programming this year, because they are clearly doing it right. However, I’ll be participating in the Broad Universe Rapidfire Reading in … Continue reading

If you’re at Norwescon, say hi! Here’s my schedule for today:
I spend at least a little time each day looking at social media news and new stuff and track the most useful links here. If you enjoyed last week’s Pinterest Analytics post, are interested in using that social network more effectively, and have an hour where you need something to listen to, I recommend this webinar. Among other things, I found out why people do those long tall pictures/infographics (which was obvious once I thought about it, so everyone else in the world may have already figured that out).

For a couple of months now, I’ve been experimenting with using Dragon Dictate for writing, both fiction and nonfiction. In fact, I’m using it to write this post.
Links of interest from this week include: a man, a cat, and a cell phone, Victorian slang, gender neutrality, rainbow roses, gauchopunk, and setting schedules.
Recent writing and publishing links of interest, including how to deliver information, how to break out of slush piles, some market resources, neuroscience, and gender breakdowns in publishing.
I really like this flash piece. It’s lovely and sweet. “Beholder” by Sarah Grey on Flash Fiction Online. Another flash piece, this time from the inimitable Folly Blaine, Scattered.
