Dar49 Daily. Yay! Here is today’s paper! I had to play with it a bit to get beyond only Grammar Girl or only Game of Thrones. I like both, but a page dedicated to one or the other is a little boring. Even so there are stories missing that I thought I had set up to grab. Oh, well. I’ll get it right someday! 🙂


Thank you, LindaGHill for the laugh. Had to reblog again. Good thing reblogs don’t fade like copies of copies! 😉


Creative Writing Tip: Read Outside Your Genre.

I found this to be true. I tend to get stuck in certain genres. My own writing tends to be sci-fi/fantasy and it is my favorite to read. Every now and then something comes along and breaks up my whole world. Take for instance my sudden Game of Thrones obsession. It is somehow very inspiring to my own writing. Yes, I know it is my genre. But I have been on a strong fem leads and writers of late. So this broke my own rules. Lately I read more non-fiction, like the book about blogging I just finished. Or autobiographies have started creeping in. I see how it affects my writing to get stuck in my reading diet. Creepy mysteries and thrillers have found their way into my reading and I find those add an edge to my writing.

What are your thoughts?

Dar49 Daily. This is yesterday’s paper.

I only post it if you like Game of Thrones. I recently listened to the All Leather Must Be Boiled podcast about the season finale. If you haven’t listened to these podcasts you are missing a vital element of  understanding for GRRM, his books and the television series. These guys give intelligent and heartfelt commentaries that are personable without getting silly. They satisfy my inner Nerd. If you read my original reviews of the GoT  books on GoodReads you would see how appalled I was at the machismo  of Westeros. These guys, and my adultrens, have introduced me to the deeper meanings of Mr. Martin’s world and characters. Now on my second read-through of the series and umpteenth watching of HBOs presentation of same.

Somehow, Paper.li must have read my mind by pulling only ALMBB as my sources. Today, I have added more sources to see if I can get a more balanced (who me?) paper. The new paper should be out after 5 Pacific Time.
