Social Media Cream Corn fighting Championship!!1!

Okay, now that I know only the elites actually dared click on this link, tell me which social media you use, formats, what is good and what is the opposite of good. For me, I blog (I'm a pretty big deal on blogger,) also just joined the Twitter (which sort of sucks (waste of time more than networkin...

Re: Do you "warm up" before writing?

Re: Cost for author's photo?

I don't understand why you need a professional photo? A friend with a digital camera with a black and white setting should be able to pull this off for you. Just drive out of town wearing a black sweater, sit on the first square hay bale you find, look mysterious, click and you're done. Maybe I'm j...

Dear Agent, Herbert Henkleman is probably the greatest scientist in the entire world, next to the guy who invented biscuits and gravy. Monday’s science fair is his chance to prove it to everyone in his second grade class. He is going to make the biggest, meanest, working volcano in history. The only...
