Dylan Cuffy10,308#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks. Eleven here, not the usual ten, because someone's account went bye-bye without a word:• +Louie Baur, +Empire Avenue stalwart; ask for him whenever you want aerial views of your car dealership• +Alexander Moschella, a furry who also thrives on +Fiverr• +Juan Reyes (poet hailing from Texas; not that +Juan Reyes, our last milestone man. Thanks, +A Long!)• +Karen Woodward (yet another lit geek; thanks, +Sarah Brown!)• +Philippe TREBAUL (circled through an Empire mission)• +Domenico Mallimo (who had another milestone of his own—15,000 followers—the other day)• +Chris Voss (who recently gave FB users a compelling reason to switch to G+ or elsewhere)• +Kenneth Burchett (follower #10,000 of mine; also, a spot in my Marigot Magic dedication)• +Ray Hamlet (Dominica's second-best on G+)• +Angie Person (another Caribbean user, this time from Aruba; thanks, 2014-04-20 21:55:195001012CC G+
Dylan Cuffy9,742#WhatLiesAground  (originally posted March 29)Ten more followers till this Fab circle is done.

Enjoy your night, fellows!NEXT UPDATE: 500 followers, ETA sometime in early April.2014-03-30 00:00:09490308CC G+

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212CC G+

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404CC G+

Dylan Cuffy2,404#WhatLiesAground Speaking of +Jens Graikowski, the circle showcase continues.You are now looking at The Chosen 44, a special group of people I rounded up on G+ back in February. To reiterate from the post that first introduced them, this is a circle of more-or-less active people and profiles whom I've followed for ages.I had only one purpose to use this circle in the first place: to show them some screencaps from "Mouse Warming", a 1952 Looney Tunes short so obscure that it was hard to get until much recently (when Warner Bros. included it in their Mouse Chronicles collection on DVD). This, for a rodent romance directed by none other than the talented Chuck Jones himself!Sad to say, that project's stalled out practically ever since I posted the credits. Maybe by tomorrow I'll resume it at long last--if we can get an alternative audio jack on the CPU working. But we shall prosper eventually!That's not all, folks! Tomorrow, you'll get to meet my Top 10 most relevant accounts on G+, and also some of the circle networks I rounded up at the start of the year.(To those in this circle: If you see "shared directly" with this message in your notifications, that means you're already included right here.)2013-05-31 16:38:4244102CC G+

Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629CC G+

Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #3 of 11Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:16:11146001CC G+

Ben Moody0My current #nanowrimo  circle. If you notice you're in here and shouldn't be let me know and I'll remove you. Mostly sharing this out so that people who are building huge circles like  me to watch others in their mad dash can snag it if they want to. This one started a bit ago from the circle +Sarah Rios shared out and I've been adding to it since. Also, if you want to be added to the circle let me know. I'll likely reshare it Nov. 2nd ( I need to get a good start on Nov. 1st :p ) if I get more than 10 or so more people into it by then :)2012-10-26 13:33:07418506CC G+
Ben Langhinrichs3,962Science Fiction Writers CircleThis is my recently-cleaned circle for authors of Science Fiction who are active on G+.

Ugh, I really love horses, but sometimes it amazes me what peeps think is okay.

Duh, judges will penalize riders for letting go of the reins during a competition when riding English. As they should. Those reins are there for a reason, and you're in a bloody competition with other horses and crowds your horse may not know.

Most times, there may not be a problem, but the one time there is, your ass is gonna end up on the ground and possibly hurt because your hands are not on the fucking reins where they belong.

Reward your horse with tone of voice and keep your hands on the reins where they belong, instead of putting your animal and yourself at risk.

As soon as this contractor comes and goes, planning on alternating work on Winter Wolf and edits for +Adam Boenig. As soon as I finish Adam's, I have to alternate edits between +Elizabeth Whittaker and +Michael Robertson -- my goal is 3,000 or a completed chapter of my stuff.

Ideally, I'll finish edits for Adam today, but we'll see; one of the shorts took longer than I expected. I haven't quite figured out the time management on that project. Fortunately it is shorter than the rest of my projects, so pending feedback, I can finish tomorrow at the absolute latest.

It's an adjustment getting back to being productive.

Now, if this contractor dude could arrive on time so I can get on with my day until the next interruption, that'd be great. Harhar.

Hey, folks! Good morning!

You still have 17 days left to contribute to my crowdfund to finance the next three Witch & Wolf novels. If you want to participate, and score some sweet perks (like photos of kitties, an entire sketch diary, naming a character who dies, naming a character who lives, and so on), please go take a look!

The campaign is a third of the way there! With your help, we can make it a big success!! Share the campaign with your friends and family, and ask them to share it too!

Thanks so much for your support! I really appreciate it.

My foot has been taken hostage by a little kitty. She has one paw wrapped around my foot, and she's using the side of it as a pillow. She's purring a lot.

She also generates a great deal of heat. I want to move my foot, but she looks so comfortable.

Bwhaah, freedom. I moved my other leg, put my foot down... and crap she transferred herself to that foot.

Catdemic!

Today, I'm buying something or two somethings on Amazon.

The purchasing of things to create the mancave begins.

My new addition will be a wine decanter (with stopper) and a whisky decanter (with stopper) as well as appropriate glasses.

I'm determined to build a bar down there, with comfortable chairs, and a little table.

I'm actually considering stealing the two arm chairs from my fireplace den and taking those downstairs, because they are really comfortable to sit on.

So, I had to block someone the other day. He kept saying I never worked.

Which honestly wouldn't have bothered me, except for a few things:

1) I am working on a book. Have been for weeks. I also have +R.J. Blain editing my first microfiction collection.

2) Other people read my posts. I am selfish in that I want people to know I write, not the opposite.

I don't mind being trolled. Hell, I have friends who identify as trolls; ones who I have followed for a long time.

But when you start trolling my work... I won't block you the first time, but if I see a pattern, you're gone.

I'm going to finish painting something, then I'm going to put a picture of it on the internet. And if you like it, you can make me an offer to buy it. (Shipping to US is $5.50, CA is $2.20 so please factor that in.)

I'm worried about my epub expansion due to Amazon's new subscription service. From my sales stats, it looks like a lot of people are (wisely) taking advantage of it.

It hurts losing those sales, with absolutely no movement on the epub front. I wasn't expecting to become a bestseller on the epub sites.... but I was also hoping for at least one sale.

So at this point, The Fall of Erelith will remain amazon-exclusive, and the other series may go back to amazon exclusive in a few months.

Why?

At the end of the day, my writing is a career and business. I need to earn my keep.

Losing 5-10 sales a day really hurts when there is zero movement on the epub front. I experienced the lower sales with Smashwords, but I had hoped that with Inquisitor's success on Amazon, there would be a chance of Inquisitor doing reasonably well on the other outlets... more »

I am going to move my ld to my cell, and get rid of my landline. Over all, i will save about $20 per month, accounting for the addition of call display and voice mail.

I will also be trimming my cable back down to basic. That'll probably save me another $15 per month.

I see no point in wasting 55+ a month on the landline when i can move things to my cell and save cash.

And my cell works in power outages unlike my landline; the base for the phones needs electricity.

I love the ethnic market. Garlic is so commonly used that it's sold in bulk pre-peeled and it's pretty good quality. So I got to use a lot with my dinner at no effort. It was also only a dollar, for like twice as much as you normally get for a dollar.

I don't drink coffee because it's extremely harsh on my stomach, and something about coffee sends me right up the wall. (It's not the caffeine; I can drink x10 numbers of cups of tea and be fine. One cup of coffee? I'm through the roof, up the ceiling, flying in the seriously-like-being-drunk happy sky.

But it really helps ease some of the allergy symptoms. So I got some starbucks in glass bottles, had one, and now i'm like OMFG hyper.

And my stomach hurts like fucking hell, but it's better than the allergy symptoms. (It's annoying, it's a little painful, makes me a little nauseated... but I can breathe.)

First major task done today. I think I am going to clean my kitchen before working on the next set of tasks.

+C.M. Skiera as soon as i have internet, you'll have some noted. In general, you get a passing grade, well done!!

After some kitchen cleaning, +Adam Boenig's stories will get work done on them. My goal is to have those all done by tomorrow or wednesday!!

Back to no internet land with me!

Anxiety and paranoia levels: Near Max.

Waiting for the make-electricity-work guy to arrive. Bleh! I hate waiting for contractors to arrive almost as much as I hate while they are here.

Preparing for my day while I still have electricity. Wish me luck. Will need it.

Reading for +C.M. Skiera and +Adam Boenig today. Will also be working on Winter Wolf and A Horse Named Corn.

May potentially do some random writing on other random things as well.

I also have an ARC of a Tor novel (I'm going places in the world!!) I want to start today. Need to finish an ARC for +Angry Robot Books  first though, and get my late review up. (Omg +Caroline Lambe you're on the plus! Hi!! :)

I will not have internet tomorrow, so you folks are aware. I will have no electricity because they're bringing the electric box and wiring downstairs back to code.

Stage 1 of things insurance isn't covering but needs done because the basement destruction revealed dangerous bad things in the basement.

Days like today are when I kinda sigh, stare at my sales on kindle and other venues, and wish Winter Wolf was ready now so my sales weren't quite so rock bottom.

Inquisitor finally went down to a trick of less than five sales a day. I knew it was coming, but... eh.

3k written today! I am feeling accomplished! This is what I should be doing every day.

It feels good to finally be writing without slogging through each and every stupid word.

Note to self: Invade library to escape slumps. The quiet helps revitalize discipline.

Off I go to the library/coffee shop!

I'll start at the library, and after I earn a drink or two, I will move to Timmy's.

Challenge me - A Writing Marathon


I am going to the library and/or coffee shop for a writing marathon.

I am counting each Moleskine page as 150 words. I have a word count feature on my iPad.

I am very motivated by food and drinks. I also need to write a lot today. So, I am going to do a writing marathon for myself.

At 2,000 words, I earn a light lunch and tea at Timmy's.

At 5,000 words, I earn an avocado and a vegetarian roll from the sushi shop, plus a drink.

At 10,000 words, I earn a dessert roll in addition to the veg and avocado roll.

If, by chance, I reach 15,000 words, I will earn something extra special, tbd.

You are welcome to add little rewards and prizes to motivate me if you would like!

2014-07-25 13:16:03 (11 comments, 0 reshares, 9 +1s)

I am considering unplugging for a while and taking my iPad, keyboard, and some moleskines to the library to work this morning/afternoon. It would be really nice to get a bunch done without distraction. I would go to a coffee shop, but there aren't any in close proximity.

I will work on Lars and Winter Wolf today.

(In theory, I could accomplish this on my couch, though not as nicely.)

Horrible selfie of perm. Live with it. 

2014-07-24 23:08:06 (5 comments, 0 reshares, 18 +1s)

That poor hair stylist. It took him 3 hours to perm and trim my hair.

He earned every penny of the insane amount it cost to make it pretty.

Thing I learned about myself today:

The stylist said, in a genuine tone, said, "God, you're a gorgeous woman."

I paused, then smiled and said, "Thank you."

It was really hard. I wanted to say, "No, I feel fat. Nooooo. I'm not."

But that's not my choice, my opinion, or my view of myself. It's his view of me, and he meant it as a compliment.

I was grateful, but it was still hard saying 'Thank you.'

Fuck whomever thought women have to be ashamed of themselves anyway.

My hair is very pretty right now, thank you.

I might be slightly pessimistic this morning, but I am currently not very confident in the ePub versions of my novel.

I really hope that the sales from the epubs make up for losing the extra income/sales of the lending library.

It's nice to be able to say, "hey look! I am on all of these platforms!" But it is not good for me, financially, if that market doesn't sell books.

So far, nada.

I really hope that changes.

Argh. Seriously, allergies, you are really sucking today.

2014-07-22 16:13:58 (2 comments, 0 reshares, 7 +1s)

If I had to boil all the encouragement / advice I could ever give to the many aspiring writers / creatives I know, it would boil down to "get off the curb." I know a lot of people who want to be writers. Eventually. When X happens, or stops happening. When inspiration strikes. They're standing at the curb of the Road to Creativity and checking their watch, agonizing about whether or not to take that step.

I know that curb quite well. I spent many years on it. And you can always tell who's not yet serious about getting on the road. (Because I spent a lot of years Not Being Serious, you see.)

But here's the thing. That road doesn't get less difficult once you're actually on it. Writing (or whatever you choose to do creatively) is hard. Editing is hard. Finishing things is hard. Getting noticed is brutal. It can be lonely and bleak and frustrating. No one... more »

So, some good news... because of how Draft2Digital works, I should be able to just use the .mobi template file for KDP for SWE and EoG. That would be mighty convenient.

Also, I need to make time to go back through EoG and smooth some things out, do very light line edits, and smooth action sequences. The book deserves to be better than it is.

SWE I'm going to leave alone. It's flawed, but... it's within tolerance levels. I don't like saying that, but it'd take too much time away from my newer books, and unlike EoG, SWE doesn't NEED it. It'd be nice, but it doesn't NEED it... sigh.

I may need a nap today cuz of allergy medicines.

2014-07-22 16:06:42 (2 comments, 0 reshares, 6 +1s)

Well, I've had a pretty productive morning so far. Allergy medicines are totally kicking my ass though, which is not good. It's really hot outside, so I'm not sure if I should go take a walk or not. We're under a heat warning/advisory.

My camera would like some usage, but my allergies are already giving me hell today.

I need to do more client editorial in the later afternoon... probably an hour and a half per client left to do today or so.

+C.M. Skiera -- I'm gonna totally do your re-read via my ipad and probably slather you with great deals of praise because I'm not actually anticipating any significant issues at all... on the 28th. I will have no electricity, so I've made plans for that reading of the book for then.
