Business Musings: Still Blogging

This week, I wrote the 300th blog post under the name “Business Musings.” That name is the third for the regular Thursday blog. At first, I called it “The Freelancer’s Survival Guide,” at least until I finished that book (after more than a year of posts). Then I switched to a reader-suggested name “The Business Rusch.” I wasn’t fond of tying my name continually to […]

Two Days Left!

Just a quick reminder that there are only two days left on the Diving Kickstarter. We’ve hit five of six stretch goals, which means there’s a lot that writers can get here for a minimum $5 investment. We hit 5 of 6 stretch goals so far. What this means is that everyone who backs the Kickstarter at $5 or above will get this: •The new […]

Business Musings: Time and Licensing (Licensing/Contracts)

I’ve spent much of the past week on licensing for my Diving Universe. Some of this is because of the Kickstarter we’re running right now. Kickstarters can garner a lot of attention for a project, the kind of attention you can’t get anywhere else. (If you want to know more about that, and what else Kickstarters can do for your writing, then sign up for […]

Business Musings: A Tiny Bit of Courage

I was in a high school English class when I learned the Ernest Hemingway quote “Courage is grace under pressure.” I remember the teacher writing it on the board, and then dissecting it, and I remember being completely confused by it. It’s the word “grace,” I think, which still in my mind brings out a host of things Hemingway didn’t mean. “Saying grace” for prayers […]

Free Fiction Monday: Homecoming

Fortan’s space mission ends ten years later (for him) and one hundred years later (for everyone else). He expects changes when he returns to the good old U.S. of A. He doesn’t expect to get arrested upon landing. He really doesn’t expect all the charges for back family support, considering he had no child or wife or girlfriend when he left. He just left an […]

Recommended Reading List: July 2020

I’ve been line editing various editing projects, which are in their final stages, so my reading time is limited. I had a weird experience, though.
