I know the articles of this site have been a bit stagnant, but I am about to fix that with a cross-platform blast of writer-fu.  I have set up a new Tumblr The Writer's Brain for all my thoughts on writing in a non-porn context, and I am intending to produce a new story each month there that will be fun and cool and also illustrate something about technique and storytelling.

Further, pursuant to our need to eat, I have set up a Patreon page so anyone who wants to can contribute to our upkeep there and help us keep above water.  Please check it out, it has a video and everything.  For those who might wonder, Patreon is a kind of virtual tip jar, or like a mini-kickstarter.  There's no goals, no paid content, just a place where you can pledge to give a certain amount to us each time a story is posted.  There will just be one story per month, and in any case you can easily cap your donations if you are worried I will try and rob you, har har.  The stories and content will be totally free, and you won;t have to pay to see them, but any little bit you can give will help us out.

Another piece of news, is that I will be opening myself up to commissions as a Manuscript Doctor.  I am not a professional editor, and I can't claim to be, so I'm not talking about line edits or grammar nitpicking or formatting.  I am talking about helping with plot, structure, pacing, and planning - all things I am very good at, as other writers can attest.

My base rate will be 2 cents a word to read and critique a manuscript of any length.  This will include a breakdown of plot issues, addressing questions of tension and suspense, examinations of pacing and symbolic underpinnings, and suggestions for what issues need to be fixed and how they could be addressed.  I will also review and critique novel summaries and synopses of up to 5 pages for a flat $25 fee.
