How to Be a Happy Writer

My post on How to Be a Happy Writer is up on the SFWA Blog.  Much of it can be applied to life in general, I think.




Happy August Day!

Happy August Day!  Don’t forget to dress like Caesar Augustus and sacrifice a bull to Mithras!  Wait, that is a thing on August Day, isn’t it?  If not, it should be.  And then it would evolve into sacrificing all bull, meaning you cannot tell a lie on August day.  Then that would drive a whole slew of greeting cards with lies in them you can hand out instead of speaking lies and to make a joke by it really being true (You look great!).  And then Christianity would co-opt it and declare August 1st the day that Peter denied Christ and therefore no lie shall be told on Peter’s Day.  And …anyway, happy August day!
