    Gads! A minor mobile nightmare!

    Today, I discovered that my Motorola mobile is stuck in 'voice to text' mode, from Google. My keypad is effectively useless. I've already learned the steps to turn it off, but discovered that the toggle is there, but unavailable for use. I have restarted, and even turned the unit off for a...

    People watching; what was seen.

    Today, I rode with a friend to a brew pub which we frequent. The day was relatively warm, and would have been sunny, but for the heavy smoke haze that had blown in from the nearest wild-land fires. After we ate, and while I was waiting for my friend to wrap up an audio conference, I sat outside...

    For those beta readers and editors out there, What PDF reader/editing software do you use? Why?

    This subject came up today, so I decided to post. Years ago, during an admittedly lazy search for free software, I came upon Foxit Reader. It works alright, and one really can't complain when an up-sell notification pops up now and then. After all, it's free. That said the free version tends to...

    In 200 words or less, offer up a slice of life. A break from the action in your story. A moment with the character (or characters), as they experience their world around them. I'll start. Pulled this from my upcoming story collection: [Now this is more like it. Plenty of time to set up. . ...

    My part of a correspondence with a new writer.

    Note: This is not a general advertisement for free writing help. That's a quick way to get buried in a pile of literary crap. This is just part of my correspondence with a newer writer who has some questions and concerns. I thought some of this might be helpful to the general audience, so I have...

    Connection Issues: Have been unable to access forum for months, just learned that Firefox's 'private window' goes thru just fine...

    Through my usual access method, I have encountered the 'temporarily off line' notice for this site, for months now. By accident, I learned that by selecting 'New Private Window' in Firefox, before selecting this site address, the exact same address took me to this, still-active site. Just...

    Regarding Patreon and auto-payments, as a patron

    Does anyone here, who is associated with Patreon, have any word on rumors of one-shot payments as opposed to a monthly payment plan? I work gigs, and barter my skills and my labor for my housing and such. Because of this, my income varies widely from month to month. I don't set auto-payments...

    What do one's words, spoken or written, really mean to the receiver?

    I recently wrote some comments down on another thread and the experience got me thinking. What do one's words really mean to another? Why do some people's words, verbal or written, seem very direct and others' words require more careful listening or viewing and more thoughtful interpretation...

    "Twenty Year Review" A short, scaly story.

    I needed to take a break from my novels for a while. Here is my latest short story, to add to my collection. It's 14, 8-1/2 X 11 pages long. So rather than break it up, I decided to attach the PDF (Brief moments of implied sexuality [nothing graphic] and brief moments of violence.) I hope you...

    Some thoughts on arguing the facts, and social media.

    In a classical argument form, to put it simply, the person or group making the claim must also take on the burden of providing proof of that claim. Here's an exaggerated example of an argument, face-to-face: At a party, Jim Slim claims that he owns a 1964 Cadillac. Sandy Clipswitch decides to...

    If it pays the same. . .

    The answer's easy, if hard to quantify. Give me a plausible answer and ask your own either/or question; beginning with, "If it pays the same, which is better?" Its easy to go low; aim higher: If it pays the same, which is better? Feeling brilliant 80% of the time, while being brilliant 20% of...
