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+

Danial Hallock7,489Collaborative CircleMy circle management strategy has always been a little structured and the people in it have always been excessively vetted before I'd be willing do endorse them.By now, most of you have probably heard of my circle "The Three Hundred" (http://goo.gl/kqE8h  :: 251 +1s and 48 reshares) where I vetted people through a series of iterative 'tests' to make sure that they were worth circling and, more importantly, worth endorsing and sharing with the world.Well, I also wanted to create a circle of everyone that those people thought were amazing.  So, I've been going through each of the Three Hundred, and circling up the people that they endorse and share in their circles.  The people that reoccur get added to this circle.For example, if Fred Flintstone shows up in +Sarah Rios, +Kate Savage, +Dede Craig King, and +Bobbi Jo Woods's circles; then he gets added to this circle, because he's obviously awesome.The idea is that everyone has some circle containing people in which they place a lot of faith; everyone has their "League of Extraordinary Circle Friends" (+Mike Elgan).  This circle is the first attempt to combine those circles into one super-project; and it's only the first pass (100/300 profiles scanned).So stay tuned, share, plus-one, and check out my other circle (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).#circleshare   #collaborativecircle   #sharingiscaring(Link to post: http://goo.gl/Ex9ai)2013-06-27 10:48:232111291385CC G+

Here is how.... add this circle!My VIP circle of top engagers melded with the circle of people who are my friends, supporters and essentially those who make what G+ is for me.Wonderfully supportive of my writing, posting and most of them are now close friends. When I started out, it was all about engagement, I did not expect so many friends! (I may have missed some people here due to oversight, please just comment and I will rectify it. No sleight is intended).Thank you all for being who you are and for the wonderful time on Googleplus!!

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+

Lacerant Plainer11,919My 'Awesome Engagers' CircleAlso sometimes called my 'VIP Circle'... Highly recommended folk with some extent of tech / geekiness / science / art and photography chops. But more importantly, people who I think are worth following. Their content is always great, engaging with them is a pleasure!Some of them don't even have me in their circles, but they are totally worth it! try adding this as an evaluation circle and see the awesomeness in your stream!If you want to see why some of them are added, follow the hashtag!

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+. It is intended to be used to find each other for writerly chit chat and advice, and for others to find us (i.e., fans, readers, bug-eyed monsters). This list is growing quickly, but some people have been removed because they don't seem active on Google+ (no public posts recently or at all).Please re-share this circle with fans and other SF writers. Let others who belong on this list let me know. I will share this periodically, but simply re-add it and it will figure out who is new. G+ is good like that.2012-10-21 14:37:4116617613CC G+

Moe „Gilvan Blight“ Tousignant3,153#RPG   #RPGCirlce   #CircleShare  A few days back +Claytonian JP  asked me to share my G+ circle. This is me continuing to do so.As I have found so many awesome gamers on G+ and you can only share 500 at a time I've broken my RPG gamers down into smaller circles sorted by "First Name" or whatever counts as that as far as google is concerned.This particular circle is my O-R circle. Now this contains people that in some way or another have indicated to me they are into pen and Paper RPGs.  It includes designers, writers, podcasters, artists, world builders, publisher, games masters, players, fans and fanatics. If you do circle any of these fine folks it would be nice if you took some time to introduce yourself.2012-10-08 19:02:36365312CC G+

Anna Mannino (GoNoAMMo)2,231Whether you have told me you write, or you participated in #NaNoWriMo last year, this is my circle of writers. Strangely only 500 people can be shared at a time, so this is only most of you.If you'd like to be in my writers circle, let me know. I mostly post around and about NaNoWriMo stuff. I try to also do a lot of hangouts to help those who need the support of a local meetup but can't make their local meetups for whatever reason, or just prefer talking to strangers on the internet as opposed to strangers in a coffee house. (Whatever, I don't judge).2012-10-02 04:30:31501701CC G+

Snippet! Story! Wheee!!

Opener for the new project my editor +Rachel Desilets said I could work on due to good behavior and finishing Winter Wolf early.

I'm allowed to work on this if I finish everything else I need to do in the day.


Was it suicide, murder, or both if he obeyed his king, sending him and those under his command to their inevitable, bloody deaths? Lars stared at the letter in his hand, willing the neat letters to change. They didn’t.

It didn’t matter that his three hundred men and women were the best skirmishers in Kelsh. A force three times their size had no hope of success. His king wanted him and his company dead, and Lars didn’t understand why. The royal messenger, with his beady eyes and graying hair, watched him like a circling vulture over a fresh kill, awaiting Lars’s response.

Since I finished Winter Wolf so early, I'm rewarding myself with playing on a new project in my moleskine. Lars informed me that his novel started about ten years prior to when I originally started it, so I had to cross out 7 moleskine pages. Lars, you're a jerk.

I like you.

Anyway, I'm trying to come up with a clever first sentence. Because obviously 1 AM is the time to be clever. Instead of, you know, just writing a shit first sentence and fixing it later...

A little while ago, I asked a question: If you could give me your favorite book to me for my birthday, what book would you give me and why?

Here is a wishlist filled with the titles of those books.

If you haven't already answered, go ahead and comment with what book you'd give me!

I created an amazon wishlist because when I go to a used bookstore, I can quickly look through the list of books people truly loved and see if the store has them!

I'm making chicken soup tonight. Here is how I'm making it:

Baking chicken, celery, garlic, onion, rutabaga and carrots in a pan drizzled with olive oil and splashed with whiskey. Salt added.

Going to bake at 400 F for 40 minutes. This may not be sufficient to finish the cooking process of the chicken OR the vegetables, but it'll be close. Doesn't matter, though, since I'm baking to unlock delicious flavors.

I will then add all of these ingredients into a pot, including the drippings. I will cut with water, add some vegetable stock I have on hand. Bring to a simmer and let cook for a while.

I will be doing a noodle soup, so no potatoes. I will be chopping spaghetti noodles into 'noodle sized' pieces. Once I'm happy with the soup, I'll add the noodles and cook them until they're done.

Wish me luck, haven't made... more »

I'm having that moment of relative calm before a complete and total freak out.

It's that moment where I have no idea why the hell I bothered making a schedule because schedules change, usually requiring finishing sooner than later.

Also, I need a clone.

I made butternut squash soup for lunch, which I enhanced with Caribbean jerk spice. If I'm going to have sinus hell from the weather, at least I'll earn it through delicious heat.

My mouth is catching on fire.

It's a miserable day here in Montreal today. By miserable, I mean, I wish I could go back to bed and hibernate until next summer. Yes, next summer. Screw 2014.

It's cold, it's raining, and my sinuses are complaining about the general state of affairs.

So, I'm going to resolve this problem by acquiring a cup of hot cocoa. I almost considered making a peppermint coffee thing, but I suspect it'd just make me throw up. Coffee and I don't get along.

Having a reasonably productive morning so far. Woo!

Sent some edit notes to +Keith Kreager -- need to wait for a reply from him before I can dig back in, since his thoughts (and maybe questions) will impact how I work on his project.

Making a mental note to chase after the lovely +Brooke Johnson as soon as I get moved downstairs now that I've done about two hours of developmental editing stuff in bed.

I'm thinking I'm going to do some blitz transcription on Storm Surge today. I'm going to set a 5k goal for today on that, so I can start prepping for editorial on that.

I have to also set up a to-do list for Storm Surge, so maybe 5k is very unreasonable in terms of what I can expect to get done today -- plus all the editing and stuff. Yeah, probably very unreasonable.

To be on target, I need to have 25,000 words of Storm Surge ready for... more »

There, Winter Wolf is finished until the transcription phase. A month and  half early. Suck that, schedule. I have a lot of notes on things needing added in started when I transcribe.

This was written like SWE -- a 50%/50% novel; about half handwritten, rest will be connection scenes and things drafted on the computer.

Sometimes a story just wants written that way, like this one.

I feel a tiny bit guilty I did not take a photo of my uncooked food. Maybe it'll be really good-looking food when it is done and worthy of an after-cooking photo.

My hands smell like lemon basil and rosemary. I have been thawing chicken all day, and it's not quite ready for baking. So I'm brining the chicken in a little bit of whiskey (really cheap crap, no fear!) lemon basil, rosemary, and sea salt, in room temperature water (so the cooking process isn't started.) I figure after an hour of brining, it'll be thawed and ready for cooking.

I have some roast beef left. I have some garlic, onions, carrots and potatoes.

Some beef stock.

I sense soup in my near future because I'm hungry right now.

I shall just go and sautee my onions and garlic, and then add carrots and simmer those in, and then boil with potatoes, then add thinly sliced roast of a beast in the final minutes of cooking. Yeeeees.

I'm doing a thorough cleaning of my house, and decided it was time to reorganize the kitchen a bit. I took some things that were in storage that shouldn't have been in storage, took them out of storage and put them in better places so they can be used. I am doing the occasional cleaning of every dish in the house thing too. 

Chicken isn't thawed yet so I can't make dinner. I ate two little cheese sticks to tide me over, especially seeing as I get to take more medicine in a little bit so I'm not weeping in pain.

A thing I have learned today: I'm an absolutely terrible student, and it's very likely entirely my fault I failed to learn things. I can't conform to how people should be taught, and don't learn in traditional methods.

So I fail. I will keep on failing, too.

And my brain just isn't wired for how people want to teach, and there's nothing I can do about it -- if 12 years in public school and half a semester of college wasn't sufficient to force me to learn in a proper method, I think it is safe to say I'm dysfunctional in this regard.

I just don't learn in a normal, conventional sense.

I managed to finish an editorial task today -- that's better than what I was expecting, truth be told!!

Medicine is starting to kick in. I'm working on Winter Wolf. I should finish the skeletal draft today. I've only wrote the most important scenes of the book this time, which is definitely unusual for me -- but I like this. It's only one moleskine of writing, but it covers scenes from the entire book, and the scenes hint at all the little connecting scenes I didn't write in. I wonder how this will pan out when I sit down to transcribe the whole thing -- it should prove interesting.

It also puts me a month and a half ahead of schedule on this project -- I had anticipated concluding the handwritten phase by the end of May.

But I underestimated how far along I was in the cut scenes until I took a look at the journal today and flipped through it. It's... more »

Soooo, my back feels like a war zone today. Torn on whether I'm taking today as a rare sick day, or try to soldier on and get things done. I'm leaning towards the 'not getting hardly anything done and getting a full dose of muscle relaxers in me' route.

That one seems to involve less pain, although very little thought capacity.

Guess I'll see how I'm doing in about 4 hours when the dose wears off, and find small tasks I can do while heavily drugged in the mean time -- maintenance and tedious work.

Sadness is when the precious +The Piano Guys signed cd arrives and the mail handlers managed to crack the case. :(

Deliberating options, including acquiring a crystal case and magically figuring out how to reinsert the inside lining to an uncracked case, all while transfering the closure sticker.

I finished my one must-be-done-today task.

Now I'm very full and entirely uncertain what to do with myself.

I could start The Tides of War. I could work on that illicit project I was working on upstairs. I could work on something productive. I could edit, clean, or just veg.

I think it's a toss of a coin for The Tides of War and naughty project I shouldn't be working on.

Probably naughty project I shouldn't be working on.

Time to go get the journal, the pen, and then cuss at my husband's work because I have to kick him out the house by 8 at the latest. tomorrow.

We're both cussing right now.

I should be working. I'm rather impatiently waiting for my dinner to cook instead... argh. So hungry.

Need to write at least one guest post tonight. Not sure what I'll do after that. Maybe draft something.

Chomping at the bit to see what +Chris Howard is up to next. He's a terrible tease...

Obviously I have to write even more books so I can buy even more covers from him.

Hey Internet!

Look at my food!

I'm following a very basic recipe from Jamie Oliver's website. It's called Perfect Roast Beef. That said, I've made some modifications out of necessity.

I am using a far inferior cut of meat. I had a great deal of fun punching the sin right out of it -- I've taken to hand-tenderizing meat because it ends up so tender with a cost of some exercise.

I rolled the blade of meat into a roast, as you can see from the ingredients. I lowered the amount of meat used and increased the amount of vegetables used.

Here is my version of the recipe. This is super easy. Anyone with a knife can do this.

Non-Editble Materials needed:

Cutting board
Chef's knife or Santoku (I used both.)
1" or deeper roasting pan, non-stick, at least 12 inches long, 8 inches wide.

All work and no play makes RJ a not-so-nice person, so I played. With paints.

I made a rather notable mess with paints. On my desk. On myself. Yeah. Paints, bitches!!

A note about the colors: The lighting has added a yellow cast to the painting, especially in the white sections. The white sections are in titanium white touched with either blue or red, depending on sections -- it is a really bright white. The painting is dark.

It's titled Spring Storm, inspired by the weird weather we're having today in Montreal. (AKA, normal spring weather, oh, hello Fall... winters coming on wednesday, but summer is scheduled for Tuesday.)

All acrylic on watercolor paper. Sadly, my last sheet. I'm going to be resorting to painting on cardboard inserts for envelopes now. (Because I can't afford to go get painting boards or watercolor paper (of a quality I like) at... more »

Went out on errands. Husband and I did some cleaning. WE almost tackled an entire room, got a lot put out for recycling, and so on. Progress is being made. If I can get him to do that much work every day on the house, we'd have the place cleaned up in entirety in two weeks flat. It really goes buy much faster with several people. Three people start stepping over each other in the same room, but two can work together and get a synergy thing going on.

Once my muscle relaxers kick in, I will be working on getting the kitchen cleaned up again so I can mop the floor and make a deliciously tasty beef roast.

Found beef for less than $7 per kilo! Cheaper than pork and chicken and its lovely meat suitable for roasting or stewing!!

Got three packages of nicely marbled meat. Puuurrrr.

One thing that definitely annoys me about Swarovski pens is that half the time, I have to just use a new refill in the pen -- you never know how old the pen actually is, which in turn runs risk of old ink. In these refills, old ink skips and does annoying things when used on a moleskine. Paper with a rougher surface are a little more forgiving.

But that problem has been solved. I've written half a page of this new novel, too.

What sort of man are you really, Lars?

Let's find out.

This will prove to be hilarious -- I've been working in first person for the past month on Inquisitor.... there are parts of Storm Surge I had to rewrite because I slipped back into first.

Now I'm gonna have to fight this all over again. Heh!

Why should 'I' be uppercase and 'you' should always be spelled out when texting or talking to someone in an email:

You are someone worthwhile. When you're talking about yourself, you should respect yourself enough to show it. Using 'I' shows confidence and at least some skill with the English language.

When you're talking to someone else, they're important too. 

Stop belittling yourself and others. Take the time to hit shift and use the two extra characters when you're conversing, for the sake of those of us who do care.

Here is the crappy back of book blurb for the project I whipped together tonight:

The King's race should have been a chance for Lars to escape Kelsh once and for all. With the gold from selling his horses, he could go anywhere. He could become anyone. He could bury his past and move on.

But Lars's luck runs out when he's recognized as more than a breeder of fast horses. With his secret known, he is left with two choices.

One choice will send him racing across Kelsh in the service of a King he scorns.

The other would force him to betray the men and women he had led into defection so many years ago in order to spare their lives from a fruitless suicide mission.

Oh hi new story, thanks for visiting! I has jotted your plotline down.

I am going to write your major conflict and like four resolutions, then I am going to very sneakily go upstairs and take an absolutely LOVELY bath to daydream about my new uhm... well, I can't really say he is a hero or an anti hero, he's neither. He's a dude who has made a bunch of mistakes and has to pay for them now, though.

traditional fantasy action adventure novel!

Now to figure out what I'm going to do tonight. Lots of choices.

I think I want to work on something with a male POV -- I've been working on Inquisitor so long I'm not sure I remember how to write in a male perspective! The novel after Inquisitor is also a female POV, so I want something different.

I could be working on something productive like City of Clocks or Royal Slaves, but I'm kicking my heels and squealing, "I don't wanna!"

I'm thinking fantasy action adventure. Probably a standalone in the same sandbox, though. At least that way I could potentially make it something viable in the future.

Now here's the situation -- working with the Rift might be interesting, but as a general rule, the Rifters are all bad boys. It's genetic or something, and I'm not sure I want to deal with that tonight.
