Dateline: September 22nd, 2011
I, for one, welcome our new typewriter-looking-robot overlords...:D
As I continue to consider the place of my blog in the world, I am arriving at a few conclusions. The overall gameplan--both for my fiction production and for this blog--is still taking shape. But one feature I think I'm going to add is a "News & Views" post, several times a week, posting significant fiction, publishing news--and contests!
I'm starting small, with a few links to get the ball rolling. Eventually, I'll probably add a sidebar listing significant items--but more to follow on that. Suggestions and comments are encouraged. Enjoy!
