YOU? A Used Car Salesman?

On April 11, 2012, in FREE STUFF, Indie Authors, Miscellaneous, Opinion, Twitter, by rsguthrie

I define auto-promoting as the condition whereby you program your favorite Tweeting automatic application (Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Socialoomph) to send out a “Thank you for following” message but you ALSO include a “please check out my (book/collection/trailer/website/Facebook page/etc.)” along with it. I used to be of the marketing, marketing, marketing mindset and though I would not […]


Phreaky (Good) Friday: Read The (Good) Book

On April 6, 2012, in Miscellaneous, Writing Tips, by rsguthrie

I love Easter weekend. It has always instilled in me a hope for which I find myself yearning much of the rest of the year. One of my traditions is that I watch King of Kings as many times as schedule allows (which I admit means fewer and fewer viewings as the years go by, […]


Shawshank Sunday: Novelists, Screenwriters, Movies, and Memorable Moments

On March 25, 2012, in In Memoriam, Just for Fun, Miscellaneous, Movie Quotes, by rsguthrie

No, this isn’t a blog about spending the sabbath in stir. It is, however, a blog about this writer making an admission. I admit it, I am a movie FANATIC. And there’s just nothing I love more than a classic movie line. I quote ’em. I wake up thinking about ’em. Anyone who knows me […]


An Irish Limerick (Send the Kids from the Room)

On March 17, 2012, in Just for Fun, Miscellaneous, St. Paddy's Day, by rsguthrie

I love St. Paddy’s Day. There are a hundred reasons why and not one of them has to do with the rich tradition of the day; too often we celebrate a holiday without the slightest clue as to what the deep, historical meaning might be. All right, stop cringing—good lord, I thought you were actually […]


Does Bette Midler Follow You?

On March 15, 2012, in Celebrities, Miscellaneous, Parody, Twitter, by rsguthrie

Twitter ratios. You probably don’t pay much attention to them. Or maybe you do. Either way you likely have some set of rules (even loose ones) that you consult when deciding whether or not you are going to follow someone (or more importantly, follow them back). I used to follow everyone back who followed me. […]


Springing Forward, Losing Ground

On March 11, 2012, in Miscellaneous, Parody, WIP, by rsguthrie

  It’s 6:44 AM here in Colorado and the forecast is Springlike. At least Mother Nature seems to be on my side today. But the problem for me today was never going to be the weather, good or bad. I’ve got a different nemesis this time of year, and he is a cowardly sort. He […]


Word Fetish (That’s Right, I Said It)

On January 30, 2012, in Miscellaneous, by rsguthrie

C’mon. Admit it. You love them.  Look at the way they march across the page, wrapping around the images just so. They are truly magnificent, aren’t they? It’s true, none of us can live without them, and almost all civilized people use them, but you are, well, you’re just one of those special aficionados, aren’t […]
