ABOUT WRITING

My "do as I say, not as I do" page. Some thoughts on the art, craft and business of writing fiction. I'll change them as I change my mind about one aspect of writing or another.

Making it all up. A humour piece I wrote for the Warner/Hachette Books website. It talks about the kinds of pitfalls you can encounter when you invent the worlds of your stories.

Shaking the Nation Sack (Editing Mojo: Conjure Stories). Another piece I wrote for the Hachette Books website.

Things fall apart: some of the ways I see stories going off track.

Cuts Both Ways. A piece taken from my blog, about racial and other coding in the first two "Blade" films.
