All Quotes


Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Me, Elsewhere

This site is my baby, my favorite, my first literary love. It’s also a ‘scratch space’; the posts here are written free-form, stream of consciousness, and off the cuff.

(‘No!‘ I hear you cry, in mock amazement. ‘Really? Get out.

Hush up, you.)

Sometimes, though, it’s fun to write something a bit more polished. Something with a beginning, a middle, and an end; without (quite as many of) the asides and inside jokes and bizarre tangents. These pieces often emerge from the ‘salvageable’ bits of one or more posts here; it’s just a matter of cleaning the rough off the diamonds, if you will. Or off the dull, scratched imitation quartz, if you prefer. The analogy stands, dammit.

The results are pieces suitable for submission to rejection by a magazine editor, maybe, or a newspaper columnist. These articles occasionally make it pasts the guards here and over the weblog walls, escaping into the dusky shadows of the interweb. When that happens, I like to list them here — they’re my ‘ones that got away’.

Maybe someday, I’ll figure out why they got away, and write something else someone will have. Baby steps for now, though. Baby steps.

Other Sites Where I Have Written Regularly:

Bugs & Cranks (baseball; often Atlanta Braves-related) (general goofiness; ‘Zolton Does Amazon’ article series, more)
