    Is reading poorly edited fiction bad for your health?

    Reading poor writing desensitises you to it, and if you’re not careful soon we’ll all be drowning in custard.

    There are many things we can and should say about this President and administration, "who knew" isn't one of them.

    New short story, "Underlanders," out today. Post-apocalyptic, featuring James Bond (sort of). I promise nothing bad happens.

    I really liked writing this one. It's mostly about the lessons I learned training for a 5k (that I didn't run). The Goal & The Journey

    Some truly terrible prose that was passing itself off as "writing advice" (not here on AW, I hasten to add) inspired me to blog about thesaurus abuse.

    Eating should be optional

    Having to eat every day is a ridiculous design flaw in humans. Eating is expensive, time-consuming, and often dull. I have a better proposal.

    Talking about some changes to the Amazon Algorithm that are actually big enough for me to notice without caffeine... or a smarter friend pointing them out.

    We often hear "write what you know," but for writers of practical nonfiction, expertise isn't enough. http://www.sarahchauncey.com/authority-credibility/
