I’m Back, Jack. Crotchety, Bat-Sh*t Crazy Clients Be Damned

On September 17, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

And let me tell you, after a trip to the Big Easy, and a couple voodoo shops, I am ready to follow through with my threats of cursing you with damnation. You may have noticed a dearth of blogs from me (then again, you may not have). Well, long story short, I had a writing […]

 

Freedom Is Not Free (An Important Cliché)

On July 6, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

Yes, it’s cliché, but the reality of clichés is that they more often than not develop from fact and truth. The term “cliché” is most often used to denigrate a lack of imagination on the part of the writer. I don’t disagree with that label most of the time. Cliché writing as a practice is, […]

Scott Bury’s Blog Tour: “Army of Worn Soles”

On June 22, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

When I jumped feet-first into the publishing swimming pool in 2011, it was pretty packed—not a lot of room to find yourself a small square foot or two without someone’s chubby foot stepping on yours or catching an errant elbow in the eye socket. Quite a few of the swimmers I ran into that first […]

 

Game Of Thrones, Funniest Man Alive, And A Comment On Speed Traps

On June 20, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

So I am going to admit up front that I have not—at least yet—read the Game of Thrones series of novels. The last time I invested time (or had enough time to invest) in a Fantasy series was Lord of the Rings, decades ago. However, that said, I am HOOKED like a junkie looking for his next […]

 

Maya Angelou: Woman Of The Millennium

On June 2, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

I don’t know why it is we wait to write about profound individuals who have impacted the very core of society and made tectonic shifts in the bedrock of culture until they are gone. Not that Maya Angelou was not written about during her impactful lifetime. She was. A LOT. So perhaps it is more […]

 

NOT Just Eye Candy; BEST BOOK!

On May 13, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

My good, good friend (and writer) Ryan Schneider is up for yet another award for his book. This time he needs our votes! If you’ve NOT read this masterpiece of dystopian drama, you’re missing out! I don’t plug many authors or books on this blog (including myself), but Ryan is one of the rare breed. […]

 

Editors: How Much (Or How Little) Should You “Rewrite”?

On April 6, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

In the days when I participated in (far too many) online writing workshops, I continually found myself thinking that the well-written pieces were far easier to critique than the poorly-written ones. Now that might at first glance seem logical, and by nature that is probably a simple, logical conclusion. But I never felt that way […]

 

New To The Biz? Want To Sell 10K Books Per Day?

On March 19, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

In some ways I am hopeful this blog gets fewer hits than my normal postings. I see at least twenty to thirty of these kind of ads/offers/scams (and yes, dirtbag authors who write books to their own compatriots to make a quick buck before enough writers realize it’s just the same old rhetoric. I am […]

 

CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE!

On March 17, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

INDEED, A HUNDRED THOUSAND WELCOMES! I was working today on an epic novel that should be out this summer—a ghostwriting project—and I just had to take a break to blog on St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve said over the years I detest St. Valentine’s Day, not because there weren’t a number or heroic and martyred St. […]
