…let’s get one thing understood from the outset… well, two things really… first of all, I’m not a guru on this stuff… this is just an ol’ Jurassic scribbler’s opinion… secondly, the WURD ‘pace’ doesn’t necessarily mean ’speed’, especially in the context of yer writing… we all know there are…

… ‘wannabe’ or ‘aspiring’ Authors… if yeez doubt yeez can write… at whatever age… please read this… great post from my pal, Lauren Sapala…

…I’ve cut and pasted this fabulous post from my pal Lauren Sapala… it’s a MUST read… whatever age yeez are!… I met a woman in my first writing program who told me about her 40th birthday. She said it was the best and worst birthday she ever had. She was…

…my great pal, David Red Button Williams has tempted this ol’ Jurassic onto his terrific blog-page, Psygota Siarcod yng Nghymru/Shark Fishing in Wales… under this link sharkfishinginwales.blogspot.co.uk …why the ‘Red Button’ and the ‘Shark Fishing’? yeez ask… I highly recommend yeez go visit his page where all shall be revealed… or…

…I remember clearly ‘way back as a kid being asked by pals, who-would-yeez-like-to-be?… by consistent answer was and remains… I don’t want to be emb’dy else… I’m perfectly at ease with myself, warts an’ all… even through the teen years, I recall resisting with fervour dressing like all my mates,…

…Authoress, Rachel Amphlett throws light on that oh-so-elusive Scribbler’s WURKIN balance …

Originally posted on Seumas Gallacher:
…listen up, Lads and Lassie of Blog Land… my pal, Rachel Amphlett has done a ton of WURK in pursuit of figuring out how we quill-scrapers can find that elusive and vital balance in all the stuff the modern day scribbler’s expected to get involved with… let her share it…

…Authors… Help!… my characters are running away with my novel again…

Originally posted on Seumas Gallacher:
…this ol’ Jurassic normally has pretty good control of his own mind, although some who know me better may disagree with that… but generally speaking, my day is fairly disciplined… my schedule is usually planned neatly in advance… I budget my participation on SOSYAL NETWURKIN… I allot time for my…

…Authors… there’s a WURLD of difference between literary narcissism and being justly proud of yer WURK…

Originally posted on Seumas Gallacher:
…it’s a strange paradox… I see and review plenty of other scribblers’ WURKS in the course of my week…. part of what I do as a small portion of my attempts to ‘give back’ or ‘pay it forward’ as we quill-scrapers say, is to download, once a week, books from…

…it’s time for PROPER change… give the running of the WURLD to the under-eight-year-olds…

Originally posted on Seumas Gallacher:
…there has always been a constant undercurrent of thought that this ol’ Jurassic possesses the IQ of an infant… on that score, I’d gladly accept that as a major compliment… the more I watch and listen… well not so much ‘listen’, more like, ‘suffer to hear’, the endless political parties’ garbage…

…scribbler pal, Author Shawn Griffith’s looking for a wee bit of feedback…

Originally posted on Seumas Gallacher:
