This deal kept my blog running. The notion that the blog could go at any moment.
That time has come. I am finished with engines.
What does this mean? An end to the blog? All remaining blogging commitments will be fulfilled. If I start the blog up again, I'll let you know. In a blog post.
Sometimes you have to go and deal with things. I have to go and deal with things. That's all anyone needs to hear.
Every writer I assisted, in turn, aided me. I'll thank the usual suspects for their help. They know who they are.
Advice for you, if you want to write? Write. Publish what you write. Just do it, but don't just do it. Do it with brains, with heart, with doubt, with coffee.
Write in the middle of the night because you can't sleep. Scribble across the darkness because writing until dawn is the right thing to do.
All authors should write through the night, at least once.
Don't write romance unless you've had your heart broken. Watch lunatics batter fuck out of each other with swords before you pen a swashbuckler.
You needn't murder people if you want to write up a serial killer tale, much as you'd like to eliminate victims on an ever-lengthening list.
Don't forget to write.
