Happy New Year From No Wasted Ink

Happy New Year from No Wasted Ink!

As 2019 closes, I am left with feelings of amazement and determination. I found focus and finished the poetry collection I had been working on and off for the past four years. It published last October and I’m pleased with how it turned out. I also had a great time at several science fiction conventions and an awesome writing conference this past fall. Thank you to all who I connected with this past fall. You all inspire me.

Winter is always a time of reflection and of prioritizing projects.  2020 is no exception. There will be a few changes to No Wasted Ink this year.  I have decided to scale back my posting to only twice a week instead of three times a week.  The posts will be more focused on writing and less on graphics, with the exception of my illustrated scifaiku.

I am going to be posting my newsletter once a month instead of being quarterly.  The newsletter with feature news of my writing progress, links to the various places where my work publishes in addition to No Wasted Ink, and recommendations of books I’m reading. From time to time, there will also be giveaways. If you are interested in what is going on behind the computer screen, the newsletter is where you should be.

No Wasted Ink will continue to feature my top ten lists, author interviews, my articles, my illustrated scifaiku poems, and guest posts about the craft of writing or posts of interest to science fiction/fantasy readers.  Instead of spending time on filler blog posts, I would rather put the time toward creating new books, short stories, and poetry.  It is time for a new direction in my writing.

Thank you all for following along here at No Wasted Ink, my little home on the internet. There are over 1000 posts on the blog, going back six or seven years. I never thought that I’d be writing this blog for as long as I have, but it has been worth it to me and I hope that you have also found the blog to be of some small value.

Enjoy the New Year!  May it prove to be rewarding and prosperous to us all.
