Dylan Cuffy0#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 21:55:195000010CC 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+

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! Share this if you like the circle :) #lacerantplainerscircles  2012-10-27 03:43:342911152751CC 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+. 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+

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+

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.

Google Plus Ghost Town? My Open Letter to The Misguided Reporters

Know what the common theme is between all these “ghost town posts”? No interviews. No named sources. Lots of reporters who never used it. A quick search usually shows that the reporter has not used Google+ themselves. Likely to not even post the article they just wrote about the platform. In fact most have less than 20 people circled and more often than not... have never even posted. Awesome. Good Reporters generally go out and interview people who are involved with something before they write a story, if they themselves don’t have first had experience. This is fringe opinion piece media. Yet tons of these garbage articles keep getting posted on major tech publications presenting like its the facts.

I figured it was time I wrote a letter to these reporters. Please media… realize that I have tried to reachout and... more »

And if I seem a little off tonight, I edited a eulogy for a client today.

Not fun for the client, not fun for me, but I think I managed to help her streamline her speech so she won't stumble while reading it at the funeral, all without losing her voice or the emotions she was trying to capture.

I've gotten a decent chunk of edits done on Inquisitor so far today.

In keeping with improving my general mental health, I'm going to limit the amount of frustrating work with a lot of fun work. This lets me get stuff done without high stress levels.

If I'm still all together tomorrow, I'm going to see how far into Keith's stuff I can get before finishing the rest of the Inquisitor proofing edits from all the editor people, so I can bounce it back to people.

Yeah, I jumped off the no sugar bandwagon. I, at least, only used two teaspoons of sugar, and they were leveled, not heaping.

That's something, right?!

I am doing a yoyo of emotions right now, which is not cool. I'm going through swings of 'nope, nope, nope' bordering on depression, bouts of 'Why am I doing this? This shit sucks." and moments of glee when I come up with some devious little idea.

a LOT of this is due to the sudden change of low-sugar foods. Combined with the depression bout, I'm not sure I can realistically cope with the withdraw symptoms and depression.

I'm at the point I feel like I need a cup of tea, with at least two spoons of sugar in it, or I will break down and cry.

We hates it precious.

Determining a character has mental illness, and stating, "Okay, Check. I no longer need to justify half the shit he does with real logic. Just fake logic."

I'm not the type of person who shares a review often, but this one, part of a tour I've done with Reading Addiction, reminds me of why I write -- and it isn't for the personal satisfaction of telling stories.

Reviews like this, and the connections forged with readers, are why I keep coming back day after day, even when I'm struggling and everything feels hopeless.

The tour group operator encourages authors to reply to the reviews, but I want to make my response to this one grateful and pursuing the forged connection without coming across as... gushing.

Because a reader like this deserves an answer better than that.

Husband person agrees it is likely dust -- cleaning has always done evil things to me, but not on this level prior.

He is gonna get me some allergy medicine to help me sleep until I can get the house decluttered. De cluttering + dust is likely what has caused this nonsense.

I happier news, I feel awake this morning. A little coughy and sneezy, but awake.

This is a new thing.

I might be able to actually stay awake and get notable amounts of work done because I am not exhausted from spending all night coughing and sneezing and all of one other unhappy yicky noises associated with allergies. 

2014-04-24 12:59:18 (1 comments, 0 reshares, 9 +1s)

After fetching a clean pillow and putting a sheet over the dusty ones, allergy symptoms (with help of medicines) went mostly away in short order. A little sniffly this morning, but sooo much better than past few days.

Feel almost human. 

2014-04-24 07:25:20 (7 comments, 0 reshares, 5 +1s)

I think i figured out my potential allergy: dust and things like that. I was better when i went downstairs. I have been cleaning in the bedroom on and off for maybe two weeks, and dust has gotten on lots of things, my pillow included.

I had even snuggled with cats and groomed the dander off of one, no reactions.

Come to the bedroom, lie down... Coughing sneezing unpleasantness in full force. Joy. I will have to wash all my pillows and cases tomorrow, and bedding.

At least thats an easily solvable problem.

Except for tonight that is. Ugh this sucks.

I'm feeling very accomplished today although I had trouble getting out of bed this morning.


1: Finished re-reading Storm Surge. Made mental notes.
2: Edited like 10 chapters of Inquisitor.
3: Did reading of +Keith Kreager's novel. Hooing and humming in progress.
4: Wrote all of the words on Whatever the hell I'm gonna call that fun novel.

Yeah. I can live with this.

10,400 words into A Horse Named Corn.

Still haven't figured out the actual title for this one. Perhaps I'll assign Betrayer's Truth to it, since it does rather fit the theme fairly well... but at the same time, it doesn't match later parts of the story as well as I would like, kinda. Though I do really like that title.

Apparently picking a title for this one will be hard.

So, tagging the Bitch Brigade in on this for title thoughts. +Bliss Morgan +Linda Dean +Heather Dudley +Ayoub Khote 

Your thoughts, at this point...

A Horse Named Corn (is really cheesy and probably shouldn't be used.)
Betrayer's Truth
Prisoners of War (I kinda like this one.)
Screw titles, who needs them anyway...

Coffee makes me drunk. The sensation I get from coffee is very similar to being tipsy. No wonder I don't drink this stuff often, geeze...

At least I can walk a straight line and drive under the influence of coffee... I just feel really unnaturally happy, extremely energetic, and I twitch at everything.

Which is kinda what being drunk for me is like, except minus the blurry vision and the wobbly and the things that make it not safe to drive.

So it's like drunk except not dangerous.

I guess it is a good thing that tea doesn't do this to me. (So no, it is NOT the caffeine content doing it. It's something specific to coffee.)

Coffee, you may eat my tummy to bits, but you are like happy medicine.

(P.S.: This coffee is only eating my tummy to bits a little bit.)

Okay, I'm glad I decided to have this coffee. It's really helping the allergy symptoms for whatever reason, so it's a lot easier to breathe without coughing and things like that.

Note to self: Save the coffee for when I feel really terrible. It's rescue medicine.

Tea doesn't have this impact.

Dear Internet,

I have had 3 days of no sugary products, but I'd really like a cup of coffee tonight. But it's a premixed coffee packet from starbucks that has sugar in it.

Can I has it, please? ;_; Just one? Just oooonnneee?

Okay, re-read of Storm Surge is finished, and I am considering lots of different improvements to make to the story. <3 I still like the story quite a lot, though. I'm really looking forward to working on the next book of the series, because it's going to have crazy amounts of action, adventure, intrigue, and mayhem. Storm Surge has a decent bit of all of these things, but the focus is more on intrigue and political ramifications than action adventure, although there is a goodly amount of it.

I wish google+ had a method of masking posts with certain hashtags in it -- one that doesn't involve an extra plugin. (My computer has problems with plugins.)

There are a few individuals who don't welcome my input on certain types of things, so I mute their posts right away so I don't read / don't reply because they have asked me not to on those subjects. They have other posts I want to follow and read, but... yeah. I wish to respect these individuals in that regard, but it's a pain in the ass.

May have to just uncircle these people because they post more about what they don't want me to discuss with them more than they post other things, which makes it uncomfortable for me -- and a lot of muting.

Oh well.

I think I've gotten allergies to something. My nose is runny, I'm sniffly, my eyes are blurry from wateriness, and it feels like there is cottonfluffs in the lungplace.

Yay potential allergies?

Instant cure for a bad mood is checking for reviews and seeing a really nice 5* review. <3

Now if only I could convince my lungs and sinuses that my spelunking under the bed last night in a fit of cleaning wasn't worthy of feeling so yicky.

Note to self: Get dusk masks next time I go to clean under the bed.

Good Morning.

At least, I think it's a good morning. There is a 7-1/2 pound cat trying to ensure I can't work in bed. She's batting at my fingers as I type on my little ipad keyboard.

I am re-reading Storm Surge, mostly looking to see what plot holes I managed to introduce during the drafting phase. I'm also looking at ways to expand the story and enhance tension and pacing, because I want this novel to be a fun read. Not necessarily edge of the seat wearing out pants type tense and fun, but I want it to be entertaining.

I have a lot less physical risk of death type of action in the initial bit of the story, but I hope the other types of tension I've introduced are equally entertaining.

I'm awake. I was out of bed for a little bit, but now I'm back in bed. Much more cozy to read there.

So far, so good. I'm functional.... more »

Considering how unholy miserable I've been today, i'm going to go to sleep. I'm taking my journals for Storm Surge upstairs. I'm going to plan with re-reading Storm Surge and working on +Keith Kreager's notes in bed tomorrow morning. Take things in small steps.

Assuming nothing blows up in my face, I'll get out of bed in the afternoon to work on Inquisitor. Guess I'll target Friday to have that done instead of tomorrow, as I had originally intended. Probably for the better.

2014-04-23 01:24:47 (1 comments, 0 reshares, 5 +1s)

Okay, I think that's enough fiddling with Storm Surge. I fixed a stupid number of errors, and I think with so many issues, I'll just lose my shit if I work on that much more today.

I really hope tomorrow is a better day, because I'm really not sure I can afford to have another day of no productivity. I didn't get nearly enough done today, and that's going to bite me the rest of this week and over the weekend.

I need to be not depressed enough to get out of bed and work. :(

+Bliss Morgan told me to work on Storm Surge, so I am.

What the hell was I smoking when I wrote this garbage? This is junk. I'm having to fix so much because apparently I got better at writing compared to when I was working on this.

I've had a lot of trouble escaping from the sugar addiction. I've tried a bunch of sugar-alternative drinks to help curb the cravings for sugar, which have been wicked terrible this go around.

Crystal Light is actually working. Two days and I haven't wanted to make the sugariest cup of tea I could make. Two weeks of success, and I'll return to drinking tea -- with very little or no sugar. Until I have two weeks of success, I'm not trusting myself with the excess sugar.

Yes, yes, I know, Sucrose or whatever it's called is all sorts of evil, as is aspartame, but I'd rather take that route of evil and kick the habit...

I am not doing an actual print run of Inquisitor this time -- currently, the only way to get an autographed copy of the novel is to win it in this goodreads giveaway.

So, if you want a pretty unique thing, sign up to win! :3 And while you're at it, consider adding the novel to your shelf and your to-read list.

Wrote some stuff on A Horse Named Corn and transcribed some of Royal Slaves. I'll pick projects to death, I tell you. Pick them to death... >.<

Now I'm staring at Inquisitor and the overwhelming list of corrections I need to implement.

There is definitely one benefit to this futile exercise... I'm getting a lot better about catching errors on my own. I'm far more aware of my mistakes because I hate having to fix them.

My goal is, next novel, to have +Rachel Desilets and +Brooke Johnson annoyed with me because there will be many pages without errors. No blue women, no worn bathrooms, and no, and I mean absolutely no, sentient mugs.

Okay, because I'm struggling with all of the unhappy emotions, I'm doing a rolling list of things I'd like to do... I'll add to this in comments or something as I go.

First task... fix a scene in Inquisitor.

Second task... work on A Horse Named Corn because I like that story right now.

Public Service Notice:

Moving forward, the fastest way to get added to my mute or block lists is to advocate domestic violence for any reason, even as a joke. It's not fucking funny. You don't bitch slap your partner, you don't kick them in the nuts, nothing of that sort. And if you think that's okay, you're part of the problem.

If you want to be an ass on your own stream, do so, but that type of mentality is not compatible with me.

When people claim to be depressed, I always wonder if they know what real depression is like. I don't have chronic everyday depression. Mine comes in fits and bursts of weight-of-the-sky depression broken with lots of episodes of motivation and general contentedness. But, those two things are always overshadowed by the knowledge the beast is back there, waiting for its moment.

Today, I stayed in bed. Did I want to stay in bed? Not particularly. I knew I needed to get up, because I had things to do and life is supposed to go on...

... except it doesn't. It's being frozen because of being overwhelmed by the awareness and certainty that it doesn't really matter if you get out of bed, because even if you do, you're going to fuck up whatever you were going to do anyway... so why bother?

So I don't bother. That's just the tip of the depression... more »

Well, I'm having an incredibly shitty morning for many reasons.

Im supposed to get up and work on my editing for Inquisitor, but frankly, I'm not even sure I see the point in doing it. My spouse is on one of his kicks about my work again, and there are other reasons, and well... I'm tired of it. I'm seriously tired of trying too damned hard and then feeling like it's completely wasted time and effort.

I think I've developed allergies to something over the years... bah. I don't even think allergy medicine works for me. I'll have to ask my husband to get some on his way home just to make sure. (Fortunately there's only one sub-set of medications I absolutely can't have, and it's not in the same class as antihistamines... eeesh.)

Nose is sniffly itchy sneezy and running, and now I'm starting to think allergies not the remnants of a cold. Boo.

At least it's pretty simple to test... assuming, of course, the antihistamines work...

I fill it with juice and pretend I'm drinking alcohol. >.> Because I'm an ADULT and I CAN.

Suck something if you don't like it, though I recommend you turn to your spouse, lover, or significant other for the appropriate things to suck. If you do not have any one of these, go find a carrot.

Well, I asked my husband if he would get me this for my birthday. His answer was "Hell no, sorry babe."

Apparently mass-manufactured and cheap is good enough for me! I mean, realistically, it is... but this is an amazing piece of craftsmanship. I'd love to have one of these filled and in my collection.

I can has a sad, but I figured I'd show this off to you folks anyway.

So, here is why I love this journal:

Hundreds of years ago, this is how journals were made. It's like a modern piece of history, taking skills most of us will never learn and making it into something new, wonderful, and glorious.

This journal in particular I love because of the colors, the contrast, and the simplicity. I love the look (and feel) of brass, and the way this journal has a balanced appearance really appeals to me.
