Introducing: Gretchen E K Engel

Introducing: Gretchen E K Engel

With Ralene departing for greener (but perhaps not geekier) pastures, we had an opening here at New Authors Fellowship. I had hoped that our new member, Gretchen E K Engel, would fill my shoes when I graduated, but since that’s not happening yet, I’m glad to bring her aboard now. I first met Gretchen through […]

I Wrote Some Words Today

And I liked it. Don’t laugh. Sometimes putting thoughts into words is hard work. It wasn’t tonight, but it’s been very hard lately. Oh yeah, I’ve got all the excuses.

I must have tried eight or nine samples recently. I’ve bought none. My most recent attempt was so promising. The fantastical elements of the world were unique. The plotline drew me in […]

Fun With Imagination

I’ve always wished for the ability to draw the pictures in my mind. Alas, I can only do so with words. But I discovered something that allows me to get close 🙂 I’ve never been a fan of building games ala Minecraft. I’m just not creative enough. But when a friend offered me access to […]

Pace Yourself

Have you ever been disappointed at a concert because your favorite band sounded different than the radio? My wife and I had an awkward moment upon discovering that yahoo broadcasts live concerts on their website. She noticed Aerosmith was live and clicked in curiosity.
