New blogs!

I started two new blogs.

One is Vim for Writers, an introduction to vim for writers.

The other is Little things on Linux. The title should be a self-explanatory.

I’m posting daily on both blogs. Check them out if you’re interested!

As of December, 2017, this is the site I post to least.

It’s the only one I pay for!

I started this site as an author blog.

That wasn’t a great idea.

I wanted to post short stories and such for sale.

I never seem to finish them.

I don’t have writerly advice either.

You know, “Make your hero likable, but flawed. Cut out excess words.”

It’s good advice, but others gave it already. My writing style is unproven. Nobody has paid for anything yet! I can’t cop an authoritative tone.

With software, at least I know my advice is good.

All this is a roundabout way of saying I may change this blog from an author-type blog to a writing blog, where I just say what I have to say.

Isn’t that what it’s all about, anyway?

I have lots of topics I’d like to cover that don’t deserve a blog of their own. But I could devote single posts to them.

I’d like to write about big cats in America. Jaguars have returned to Arizona. Mountain lions have been documented in a number of states from which they’ve been exterminated. The sightings are few and short. But the cats are trying! Somebody needs to write about them.

I’d like to write about Asian carp too. If you’re an independent filmmaker, look me up. I have a fisheries degree I need to take out of the closet and dust off. Well, marine science technically, but it was fisheries. I’m thinking of a movie like Cane Toads An Unnatural History. If you haven’t seen it, you must!

That’s it for today. Tune in tomorrow for another exciting post. Best!
