Passive Aggressive Christmas Gifts for Writers

Warning: Hacks for Hacks tips may have harmful side effects on your writing career, and should not be used by minors, adults, writers, poets, scribes, scriveners, journalists, or anybody. Writing has lots of rewards, most of which are worthless. You can’t pay rent with critical acclaim, nor will contributors’ copies finance your office-supply addiction. But […]

Whether you’re a writer or not, this is a good post about facing fears.

Bill Crider has given to the writing more than anyone I can think of. I was not surprised to see that he had been a teacher for many years. He has always been encouraging and kind. He wrote the review for Murder On Wheels that appeared in Mystery Scene magazine. It was so cool to be surprised that he took it upon himself to do that.
He is one cool dude who will be missed and it stinks that I won’t get to meet him in person.
I wish the possible best for him, his family, and his VBKs. (Cats) Thank you, Bill, for all you’ve done. You’ve touched more lives than you could possibly know. Thanks for giving Texans, teachers, writers, a good name. Your legacy will live on through your work and writers who encourage others.

Better than I thought it would be. 3.5/5. And as always, I adore Domhnall Gleeson. He’s just as talented as his father.

Big on atmosphere and the narration is poetic. But doesn't deliver as far as content. 2/5

Meh. So-so but has some good moments though. Judah Lewis stars in it and steals the show. I think we’ll be seeing him in a lot more movies. I have a major gripe but will post on comments. 2.5/5

Not sure what I think about this one. I think there are some plot holes. 2.5/5
