I've started a Telegram channel for my Babylon Tales writing. I'll use it kinda like an interactive email newsletter (comments enabled on Broadcast messages). Consider joining us in Telegram!

Let me pick your brain about writers, readers and how they intersect.

Let me pick your brain about writers, readers and how they intersect. I've noticed over the years since self publishing became a thing, that there seems to be a weird trend among us writerly folks. It seems we seek out other writers instead of readers. I'll admit, I do it. Why? Because sometimes the easiest way to find a reader is to find a writer first. But what a ridiculous notion. I feel like we're looking in the wrong place. It would be like me asking my friend to use my plumbing, because he's a plumber by trade. And I don't believe all readers are writers or would ever want to be writers, so that means there's potentially a lot of folks we're not reaching. Why? Because they're harder to find? Because we're too lazy to find them? Because we like the company of less judge-y writers? Because..... Any rate, something I've noticed over the years. It's like we're the congregation of readers where membership dues comes in the price of ink.

Deep Thought #6

Deep Thought #6 What if instead of an election, the Republicans and Democrats had to play a game of flag football? The winners then got to choose whether their defense or offense would run the White House. And the losers would pick whether their offense or defense would run Congress. The Senate would be made up of the referees. And the Supreme Court would be the sports commentators.

The Order of the Dragon, "That's not a Cross..." (excerpt)

(excerpt from The Order of the Dragon) Tom Bradshaw sat at a table near the windows that looked out to the beach and Lake Huron. With the morning fog covering the lake, he couldn't see Mackinac Island. But he knew it was out there, and in the back of his mind he was hoping another body hadn't been added to the count of violent crimes being committed on its pleasant shores.

Originally shared by Damien Boath Watching the newest X-Files 1st episode. I must say I'm feeling disappointed. It seems to miss the mark for me. I would've thought it'd be a bit more refined and clever. It just seems stupid and chaotic with shallow performances. Will still watch them but meh.
