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+

In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:2844017110CC 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+
Scott Buehler44,873A few weeks back, I completely wiped out my circle group collections and decided to fully rebuild them with people that are relevant to me. These are people on Google Plus who go the extra mile, who share relentlessly, who help me in my businesses, and overall, people who expand Google Plus with helpful videos, posts, guides, and generally my favorite group I follow and read when I get a chance.These people are why I love Google Plus, and although I have a presence in other social networks, these people, right here, are the reason why Google Plus is my favorite network where I spend most of my free time.THANK YOU TO YOU ALL for your day in, day out contributing to Google Plus. These guys and gals are in my "Important Stream" group with "Show in my home stream" preferences set to "More."2013-10-23 16:41:3911810478112CC G+

Jake Kern24,894The Silver DonutBeen wanting to do a circle share for a while, but I just haven't wanted to put in the work to get a group of 100 for another #GoldenDonut. Instead, I grabbed the top 500 from my Google relevancy algorithm. Then I removed a couple people who don't like being in circle shares & some pages so I could stretch the 500 a bit. (For instance, both +Melissa Bagley & +Melissa Ann Bagley Photography would be in the circle--in the top 25, actually--but I just included Melissa's personal profile even though you should circle both.)Many amazing people in here. Thank you for making this corner of the Internet worthwhile.Peace. #SilverDonut  2013-07-13 22:19:3849915225136CC 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+

Raymond Duke2,369I only use one circle for people I add on G+. This is it. Unfortunately, due to G+'s shortcomings, only 500 people are allowed. Maybe one day they will open it up to more, like Twitter did recently with shared lists. Why do I use just one circle?Because I treat everyone the same. If you are on the internet, it doesn't matter what you do. We are all equal on the web. Our conversations and interactions will determine the context of our relationship, not how I categorize you. 2013-06-20 16:03:47500315CC G+

Calvin and Hobbes Query for the Hive Mind

I'm trying to find a quote from one of the strips. It was a Sunday strip painted in watercolor. I believe it was a fall setting. One of the characters was commenting about how wonderful and magical the world around them was.

I've found the one that ends with Let's Go Exploring, but I don't think that's the right one. Here's a link to the Exploring one so you know which one I've already found:

 https://abettingman.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/calvin-and-hobbes-lets-go-exploring.jpg 

Does the fall scenery coupled with the theme of the world being a magical place ring any bells for people or am I mashing two separate strips together in my mind?

Today, I'm wondering why more people don't use the word consternate. It appears to be a perfectly acceptable word. At least, Merriam-Webster thinks so. 

Needless to say, this line of thought has led me to feelings of consternation. Yeah, I didn't think it was that funny either, but they can't all be winners.

Learning to Cook

I've made dinner before, but it's always involved frozen food or something that could be warmed up rather easily. Today, I did something different. I made a meal from scratch: Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers.

I learned two things.

1. Even a simple meal is a lot of work.
2. Needs more salt.

Great Episode of Self-Publishing Roundtable Last Night

Last night, we spoke to several indie authors about the benefits, costs, and things you should consider when translating your books to a different language.

This was a really fun episode. We spoke to +Courtney Milan about foreign translations and were joined by guest hosts +Cristin Harber and +Brenna Aubrey. Naturally, the old stand-bys, +Carl Sinclair, +David Wright, +Trish McCallan, +Wade Finnegan and myself (I'm the reason you guys watch, right?) were in attendance as well.

Name-Your-Own-Price Charity Editing Time Again!
The short version is this:

+Markéta Gajdošová  is having dire financial troubles and needs to keep a roof over her head and (ideally) food in her life. 

I was an editor for many years, and gave it up when I realized how rich I am and how terrible working every day is. Still, I love the job and I feel compelled at times to help friends in need, so I'm offering to come back to the game with 50% of the proceeds going to +Markéta Gajdošová .

If you need editing and want to help out an amazing person, email me at gfitzgfitz@gmail.com and name your price.

The long version:

So I'm becoming something of a charity editor by trade at this stage, having quite recently worked with +Carissa Braun and +Lisa Cohen to help +Laura Gallier through a dire financial situation. I worked as aneditor for... more »

Helping a friend in need

+Markéta Gajdošová is a passionate writer and hard worker, she's also a friend of mine here in Prague. She needs our help. She's found herself in a similar situation to the one I was in not so long ago, and she's struggling to pay her bills. 

I will give 50% of all the fees received from editing clients taken on in the next 3 days to Marketa

So, do you need a developmental editor? Someone who's thorough, efficient and passionate about their craft? Then email me, and we'll help a great woman and fellow writer get out of a horrible situation.

+John Ward has kindly offered to help spread the word and help Marketa get back on her feet.

Self Publishing Roundtable #038 with Courtney Milan on Foreign Book Translations.

This show will stream live on our site and YouTube on Thursday, March 20th at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST.

Welcome to another episode of the Self-Publishing Roundtable, the weekly interview show for self-publishing authors. This week we interview Courtney Milan.

For those of you unaware, Courtney is a NYT and USA Today Bestseller of Historical romances. Although she is technically a hybrid author, she’s been exclusively self-publishing since late 2011. You can find more about her (links on the linked post)

+Trish McCallan  has been a big fan of Courtney’s intelligent and straight talking blog posts regarding the traditional and Indie industries since I first started researching self-publishing back in 2011. Courtney always approaches a discussion-be it on her own blog, or a comment onsome... more »

Anyone else sick of commercials for Frozen?

I was just complaining about them to my wife and she said, "We get it already. The movie came out. LET IT GO!"

Our house was robbed today - no one was hurt!

For those who live in the Knoxville / Loudon, TN area:  Today @ 11:30AM, the guy pictured below broke into our home, tossed the place around, & robbed us.  This is actually the 2nd time our home has been robbed.  The good news is that, this time, we had added security cameras.  :)

The police have been super helpful in working with us and making sure that we are secure.  However, I would like to help them find out who broke into the house.  Have you seen this guy before?  Do you know his name?  If so, send me an email at robbed@nathanblevins.com.  

If you live in the area, please help me spread the word & share this post!  I want to have my peace of mind back (in some portion, at least).    Thanks! #Knoxville   #LenoirCity   #Tennessee

Friends and fellow writers, I'm delighted to introduce +Bart Carroll. I worked with him at Wizards (where he still works), and apart from being a huge game geek and all-around nice guy, he's also working on a graphic novel. (He may be looking for beta readers, if you're interested in seeing his work. I've seen bits of it in its early stages, and the world-building and characters blew me away.)

+John Ward, would you introduce Bart to your community and show him where the beta readers hang out?

I've really enjoyed the first part of +Steve Broome's graphic novel; you might have some things to talk about.

Self-Publishing Roundtable Interview with Hugh Howey

This is the interview we did with Hugh Howey, as part of the Self-Publishing Roundtable, regarding his Author Earnings website. It's a little long, but I believe it's full of good information.

We talk about the report that they ran, asked several questions about how they came to their conclusions, about what other type of reports they might consider running in the future, and a host of other things.

If you watch it, let me know what you think about all of the data and the report itself. If you haven't read the report, you can do so here: http://authorearnings.com/the-report/

Author Earnings Report: Got a Question?

Tonight, I'll be participating in an interview with Hugh Howey for the Self-Publishing Round Table. We will be talking about his most recent endeavor: http://authorearnings.com/

If you aren't familiar with the report, you really should take some time to read through the article. Click the Author Earnings link (it's in the previous paragraph) and read the report.

Chuck Wendig has written up his early thoughts on the topic here: http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2014/02/11/very-very-very-early-thoughts-on-new-author-earnings-report/

Thanks to +Nello Jennings and +Chris Curtis for sharing the original photo.

Over on that other social network, I wrote:

"Ever have your newsfeed overrun by trite messages? Life-affirming homilies or treacly cliches? I used to think that this sentimental stuff was sweet; but, then I joined Facebook.

Now, I see so much of it all the time, that I have become jaundiced. So much so, that now, I delight when people make reactionary images like the one I share below."

They didn't like it so much.

Making a better author survey.

Well, at least I think I have. This one focuses on more modern aspects of indie publishing. It gathers data on what today's author really wants from a publishing site, and lets you weigh in on some common concerns cited anecdotally by authors.

10 minutes, tops. And I'd appreciate if you shared it with any other author and ask them to take it. Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm a regular participant in the Writer's Discussion Group here on G+, and when the issue of splitting the critique section off into its own community came up, I somehow managed to leave a few responses that ultimately led to me co-owning the joint.

Today we go live, and I hope we're able to build something useful for writers of all skill levels.

Thoughts? Theories? Ideas?

The UFO crowd is going nuts over this object that has been found on Google Moon. It's visible at coordinates 22042'38.46N and 142034'44.52E.

This series is GREAT!

If you watched Star Trek: Next Generation, you will love this webcomic. It's called Chief O'Brien at Work. Below, you'll see the first one. Click the link and read the series.

I'm taking cover commissions. I'm trying to raise money for a BookBub listing. I don't do erotica or comedy (not good at them).

Today, I had to go to the store for my wife.

I was standing in the frozen food aisle with a box of Eggo's in my hand and I noticed that they have all of these variant flavors: chocolate chip, mixed berries, blue berry, etc. I thought, "Why haven't I seen any of these before? Surely, the girls would like these flavors."

So, I grab one of each because they were on sale, but before leaving the aisle, I decided to call my wife just to make sure that there wasn't something I had missed.

"No, I never get those," she said, "too much sugar. It's bad to eat that stuff before they go to school. If I want to give them something like that for a treat, I'll get the whole grain blue berry one-- it's on the top shelf."

So, naturally, I got a box of each flavor. I figure that the kids deserve to experience these other flavors... more »

Odd Couplings or Why Can't I Curate for Myself?

I do not envy the decision makers who run enormous social networks. I imagine they they probably have thousands of demands from just as many different users asking for better filters or for ways to make their content more meaningful.

It's only natural to want the service to be faster, smarter, better. The go to answer for this is always asking the computer to do more. Better algorithms based off of a more complete understanding of the end user. Monitor the type of content that that user has responded to in the past, their perceived relationships with other users, etc. Additionally, I'm sure there's some type of 'we've got to monetize this' strategy at play that encourages the use of algorithms over a straight chronological feed. For many people, the algorithmic generated content is probably wonderful,... more »

Maybe there's hope for SyFy afterall.

"Adweek has an interview with Bill McGoldrick, who joined Syfy as executive VP after Mark Stern's departure in November, and he suggests the channel is looking for "good adult stories" in the science fiction genre...."

"...The good news? Syfy's ad rates would apparently go up if it were being perceived as the home of more intense drama, rather than its current focus on what Adweek calls a mixed bag of WWE (Friday Night Smackdown), reality (FaceOff, Ghost Hunters) and its signature original films (Sharknado). So there's a financial incentive to make stuff happen..."

China Cloning Pigs on an Industrial Scale.

This gives me so many mixed feelings. I'm not sure whether it's more appropriate to be experiencing horror or a sense of awe.

On the horror side of things, you just know that these pigs will end up in the food supply. No one has any idea what the possible side effects of eating a clone of a clone of a clone? Will this practice eventually find it's way to the Western Hemisphere? Man, there are just so many nightmare scenarios that you can envision as an outgrowth of this activity.

On the awe inspiring side of this, I would imagine that they will make significant advances in cloning (they seem to have already developed an assembly line type approach that allows this to scale) and in gene sequencing.

Like most things in life, this activity probably offers both good and bad to humanity.

There's something wrong with me.

I'll see these upbeat, rah-rah kind of messages on that other social network and every single time I just want to burst that bubble. 

You can't make blanket statements like this because there are always exceptions to the rule. Well, unless you're making a blanket statement about blanket statements; then, it's okay.

After reading this meme, my mind goes off trying to think of the most horrible thing that a person could experience while walking through the woods. Not something that would lead to blood shed or anything like that. Just things that would put them in a really bad and miserable mood.

I'll refrain from posting those examples here because I don't want to ruin your day. However, if YOU want to list your scenarios that would put someone in a miserable mood while walking through... more »

Needs more Cowbell

Man, I feel so old. I just used the expression "Needs more cowbell" and the guy I said it to had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. I might as well have been speaking a different language.
