Shivakant Tripathi1,650Here is my 1st circle of engaging plussers. This is the only circle that I share publicly and it's made up of the awesome people who I follow and interact with regularly. If you received a notification then you are in it! I curate the be-jesus out of this circle and you don't get in just by doing the plus, comment, share  thing on this post. I make this circle up based on interactions on all of my other posts.Sharing, commenting, plussing is all encouraged and appreciated BUT re-share for your own reasons. Sharing won't get you in, not sharing will not get you tossed out. Again - not that kind of circle.There is plenty of room, Circle will be revised. #engagerscircle   #engagersshowcasecircle   #circleshare  2014-04-16 21:05:12198001CC 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+

Christy Sandhoff21,699Kris Ten originally shared: THANKSGIVING CIRCLE SHAREIf you received a notification you are IN this circle!Thank you to everyone who is following me, and working with me to create a better world! (DOMINATION)I am sharing my inner circle in this circle (at least I think most everyone, had a little technical difficulty so I may have missed a few.)This circle is 50% some of my inner circle on G+, and 50% were selected at random from the people who are following me. I am asking everyone to SHARE the circle and help launch some new people into the G+ mix.  Anyone who SHARES this circle is guaranteed a spot in my next circle share. That goes for anyone who shares on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc wave. I will find you through the ripples, but the shares must be public. There is plenty of room to make it a snowball! (That means add the entire circle, then reshare it out, and add yourself to it! You can even add another 100 people if youd like and then share it out) To ALL the NEWBIES: My recommendation is to add in the entire circle, and keep them in their own circle. Over the next week or two, check the stream and move people from the probationary circle to permanent ones. Finally . . . as you know I am always working on something. This means I utilize my circles for different distribution lists etc. Do not be alarmed if I have uncircled you or have not circled you back. It is because I am using the circles for something else at the time. I can only circle 5K people, so at any given time there are many who are not circled back. That does not mean that I don't know you are there, and that I won't help you if I can.  Feel free to tag me in your posts. Approximately 30% of my posts are shares from those who follow me. G+ Network is the BEST place to Network on G+ with REAL PEOPLE. We are building small virtual neighborhoods and town squares all over the globe. We have a team of about 60 moderators who are there to keep things balanced. You can self promote in the G+ Network as long as you are an active member of the community. That means you just "don't post and go." We want engagers and not solicitors in the network.   For more information:https://docs.google.com/document/d/17FCGYkBOaKylcDPsep9W87NItwDzKkMd11ei8FaZ5u0/edit?usp=sharingBLOGGERSMake sure you check my profile every couple of days.

Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249731342CC G+

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130CC G+

Dede King0I Missed My Cake DayThe 2 November 2011 was my cherry popping entry into the land of Plus. A year later and I can honestly say it's the best social network I've ever used. I can't remember a time, ever, when I've looked more insane smiling, laughing and scowling at a tech device in numerous coffee shops across the map.I just wanted to say thank you to the thousands of amazing people who've circled me, some of whom I've been privileged to meet and get to know. I wish circles weren't limited to 5000 and a 500 share so I could ping you all.So, Thank You (with a special nod, hugs and kisses to the top 12, yes even you) for making it fun, interesting, exciting, textless, pouncable, inflammatory, lollable, educational, thought provoking, melt worthy, smile inducing, loving, warm - just downright fantabulous.All my plusses they belong to you.

This is one of the reasons I like the multiplayer in Dark Souls and Dark Souls II. Player communication is limited to messages pieced together from pre-defined words and phrases, and pre-defined gestures. Unless I turn on voice chat in the second game, I can play without having to deal with a sore loser of a player calling me a "faggot" if he invades my game and dies on my sword.

Reading incessantly isolated me as a kid back in the 80s, when only stockbrokers had mobile phones. As the article points out, boys who read were always considered less-than-manly in America. However, I'm not impressed by arguments against reading that suggest reading is bad because it isolates readers from the wider culture.

What's so good about the wider culture, anyway?

My favorite writer has died. I remember reading One Hundred Years of Solitude in a state of wonderment. It was pure joy to read one of his sentences, some of which marched on defiantly for pages. Marquez's exuberance of expression, his refusal to bow to any of the many rules so many would impose on writers - be brief, pare down, trim, don't decorate or embellish, be clear, make it easy, keep your characters to a minimum - felt like being let out of prison. Like flying. I could taste his words. Smell them. Feel them. Hear them. See the pictures they painted, the characters he described.

I thought, 'This is writing. It is cooking, painting, composing, gardening, architecting, weaving and sculpting all at once. It is the Big Bang. Except that you don't have to wait millions of years for the light to reach you. It is immediate. Visceral. Delicious. Unforgettable.

Finally, a man writes about the problem with misogyny in comics.  Andy Khouri's post is spot on, y'all. Read it. It's long but worth it.

This isn’t their problem, guys. It’s ours. We have to solve it.

Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit. And it is not in the power nor the responsibility of women to wage war on this crime.

It’s on us.

Jessa Russo asked me to help her promote her new novel Divide, which comes out tomorrow, and I suggested dragging my review for her debut Ever out of the archives. It’s something of an anomaly among her reviews, since I decided to wax pretentious and treat its protagonist as an unreliable narrator.

I’m helping out first-time +Curiosity Quills Press novelist Wilbert Stanton with the cover revelation of his debut: The Artful. It’s the first part of his Shadows of the City series, and will be available on 27 May 2013. The blurb suggests a sci-fi tale reminiscent of Oliver Twist.

When I was in school, I would have considered being told that being queer is a sin bullying if I didn't have the equal right to tell the kid who said so to keep his tyrannical demon of a God to himself, because I wasn't interested in his bullshit.

One person's speech isn't more worthy of protection because it fits in with a viewpoint held by the majority of the community.

ARE YOU USING THE RIGHT TOOLS?

Are you a writer who thinks about the tools of your trade? Do you compose your drafts using Microsoft Word? If so, why do you do it? Do you use Word because you got a copy with your computer? Do you use Word because you think everybody else does it? Do you use Word because it's the "standard"? Do you actually like using Word, or do you find wrestling with it a distraction from writing?

I hate using Word and similar tools when writing and revising drafts, so I found a way that works better for me. If you're not in +John Ward's Writer's Discussion Group, my blog will tell you what I use instead of Word, and why.

Word is a Lousy Composition Tool.

I ask because I don't use Word when composing fiction. If I really wanted to, it's possible to run Word on Linux. While I'm masochistic enough to enjoy Dark Souls, my appetite for pain has its limits. I could also use LibreOffice to draft, but I would prefer not to.

JUST A REMINDER

If you paid taxes this year, you deserve to treat yourself to some badass libertarian science fiction and imagine a world where even suggesting that taxes should be levied is enough to get a public official arrested on charges of tyranny.

If you think I'm joking, you haven't read +Without Bloodshed. I recommend buying a copy tomorrow, when ebook copies will be available for $1. That's right. I'm discounting my novel to a mere buck. You'll find more info, including purchase links, below.

I've been using Sublime Text to write for a while, because I prefer to compose in plain text files with Markdown formatting. However, the Sublime Text developer expects users to pay $70 for a license, and I'm not willing to spend that kind of money for a text editor. Hell, I don't even pay for my operating system.

So, when +Brian Tomlinson mentioned Brackets (http://www.brackets.io), I decided to check it out. The app is available for Linux, OS X, and Windows, and though +Adobe started the project, it's free software licensed under MIT terms.

I installed a few extensions through the Extension Manager, among them a handy Markdown Preview plugin that saves me the trouble of running Pandoc and opening a file in Firefox to see how it'll look.

I found this after reading one of +Meg Tufano's shares. We sometimes talk about how so-and-so isn't "man enough", but some female athletes face the prospect of not being considered "woman enough" to compete, and are often faced with the prospect of invasive medical interventions if they wish to continue competing.

My review of a children's book:

The Order of the Rose:  Forsaken Petal

By:  +Josh Hoyt 

Synopsis:  Tom Alerio is a young boy orphaned early and growing up hard amongst the more hardened boys in an orphanage that is run by a shady director.  He is presented a choice of paths when he reaches an age to choose and his adventures begin.  He makes loyal friends, learns about himself, and learns more about the world than his narrow view from the orphanage.  

Pros:  It is a lovely children's book that would be a fantastic read aloud for bedtime.  There is action, drama, and you can't help but wonder and care about the characters closest to Tom.  If you find Harry Potter series a little too old for your youth to read, but that is the genre they enjoy, give this book a try.  It is consistent, easy to read, and stays young minded through the book.  SoI give it a... more »

SILENT CLARION: CHAPTER ONE (TAKE 2)

I wasn’t happy with how my first attempt at beginning Silent Clarion, a Starbreaker prequel featuring Naomi Bradleigh. I decided to try it again using a perspective I don’t normally use: first-person. This is the result.

I expected to find John asleep after I finished my shower. He just began his last year in residency at an Ohrmazd Medical Group hospital, and by necessity often dozed after pleasuring me. As an Adversary sworn to the Phoenix Society, I often encouraged him to sleep whenever possible. Tired people make mistakes, and in our lines of work mistakes might cost lives.

I was surprised therefore to find him stretched across the bed naked, and reading a medical journal. I sat on the edge of the bed beside him, and dragged my fingertip down his spine to make him shiver. I leaned over him and kissedhis... more »

Fellow +Curiosity Quills Press novelist +Mike Robinson (Skunk Ape Semester, The Green-Eyed Monster, The Prince of Earth, Negative Space) has a collection of short fiction entitled Too Much Dark Matter, Too Little Grey coming out today. To help promote his work, I solicited a guest post from him to share on A Day Job and a Dream. By Yog-Sothoth, he delivered. Join me as we slip between the interstice.

I am actually going to hold off my normal commentary here. This article is dense, and well worth reading. It seems to be written more from an anthropological perspective than a journalistic one. 

Needless to say it is on those who are racist, sexist, and bigoted, but it goes into why exactly, which is illuminating. In some ways it shows why there is polarization between the urban and rural in this country, and why there is a great degree of polarization politically. In many ways this explains the craziness on the right and within the GOP.

I didn't need Australia's top medical researchers to tell me that homeopathy was probably bullshit, but I assume that anything not backed by a double-blind clinical trial is probably snake oil.

I don't claim to be particularly open-minded. My attitude is peer-reviewed evidence or GTFO.

I didn't have time to do more than skim this, but it was interesting.

Dear Men of Google+:

I've been on G+ since the second week of its existence, and from the very beginning I've felt welcomed by men on this platform. This was eye-opening, because, as a writer of literary nonfiction, some of which explores social, cultural and political issues that affect the lives of women (in which I'm naturally interested given that my father died when I was young, and my mother became a working mom within 24 hours), I'd always been warned to stay away from anything on social media that could ignite the dreaded fear of feminism - you know, all that ooga booga booga about politics and religion at the dinner table.

Stay away, for instance, from raising the issue that it's 2014, but women still make, on average, only 77 cents for every dollar that a man earns.

But G+ is a long table at which interesting people talk about things that are... more »

MAKING WISHES IS RISKY

I don’t like spammers. I never have. I never will. I especially hate telemarketers, and take perverse pleasure in wasting their time. Email spam that gets past Gmail’s filters normally just gets reported and deleted, but every once in a while I’ll spam a spammer by asking them to make themselves useful and buy a copy of Without Bloodshed. I think I’ll do something different in this case. There’s a risk inherent in making wishes: they might be granted.
