    Wow. I've never clicked the Stats tab on my Blogger account before, but just did a minute ago and learned that I had 463 hits last month! I'd expected, optimistically, a tenth of that. 

    Most popular have been my recent Visions Of The Mystic East, Catching The Glow (probably on account of the photograph), Twig By Twig, and Terry and the Bumrolls (which describes meeting Terry Pratchett at WorldCon some years ago).

    Even if it doesn't translate into book sales, it's sweet to be read. :)

    I've been posting a series on Heinlein's wonderful Rules of Writing on my blog this week. 

    Today I talked about his most controversial rule: Rule #3 - You must refrain from rewriting except to editorial order!

    http://daringnovelist.blogspot.com/2010/10/heinleins-rule-number-3-you-must.html

    (Which, due to a bad day, I refrained from rewriting.  I still think it's  pretty good posting.)

    I just finished up my series on Heinlein's Rules of Writing tonight with Rule 5 - You Must Keep It On The Market Until Sold (with a short bit about how this applies to Indies as much as to writers going for traditional publication - hint: Winston Churchill explains it best.)

    http://daringnovelist.blogspot.com/2010/10/heinleins-rule-number-5-you-must-keep.html

    This is the first year anniversary of my blog, btw.  I have written 395 posts in this past year.  I may have missed one or two days, but it appears I have made up for it with some double posts.  I didn't get the book done in time, but heck, I discovered Indie Publishing in February and that was darned distracting. The blog has kept me pretty well on track most of the time.

    I just posted a quick outline of why I think writing short stories is the key to becoming a better writer:

    Writing Short Stories Considered Useful


    -David
    David Michael
    Living Ghost Time

    On the night before Brenna Guin's annual July 4th Sleepover Extravaganza, she discovers her house is haunted by the ghost of Harvey Westmore, a magician. Which, she decides, is perfect. A touch of ghostly magic is exactly the surprise her party needs...

    Yes I did! And I am so stoked! I posted to the Red Room : http://www.redroom.com/ last week and just this morning found the post is now listed as one of the favourites of the theme for that week: http://www.redroom.com/blog-keywords/my+favorite+garden+blog

    Just posted a new one there (and as always, to my own blog): http://www.redroom.com/blog/shazza/i-went-get-a-facial-and-came-out

    It is these little steps that encourage me to put in the hours for promotion and marketing of my book. 

    ps. can someone please point this obvious Luddite to how to put in a hyperlink here instead of the full monty. Keep in mind I know nada about HTML. thanks.

    Yes, I posted a little ditty entitled Writing: The voice of gods, goddesses and that elusive muse.

    It juxtapositions and analyzes Julian Jaynes' theory about the bicameral mind with the process of writing.

    I just posted a piece on the difference between can and may in "Editing for Grammarphobes." Surprisingly, they are not interchangeable.
