One Sip at a Time: Notion Potion #1 by Jordan Castillo Price

One Sip at a Time: Notion Potion #1 by Jordan Castillo Price

Welcome, old friends and new, to Notion Potion, which Wave has so generously offered to host! What’s it all about? Everyone who visits this blog is interested in a creative endeavor: writing, blogging, reviewing, and crafting—even reading, in which we “create” stories in our mind’s eyes based on some squiggles we’re decoding from a page. Many of us yearn to embrace the natural creativity that we could experience in our…

Where Ideas Come From by Jordan Castillo Price

Where Ideas Come From by Jordan Castillo Price

Jordan Castillo Price is a regular visitor to this site and every time she shows up she shares her knowledge on different topics. Today she’s talking about storytelling. Who knew that there was so much involved? I thought you could just grab ideas out of the air and massage them, but Jordan shows how complicated this writing business can turn out to be. 🙂 Here’s her newest essay: ************** Storytelling…

Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places …. by Ethan Day

Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places …. by Ethan Day

Greetings one and all! Despite what Wave has likely told you, I’m thrilled to be back on the site spewing my very own special words of wisdom. Sigh…I do love to spew. While grappling with what topic I wanted to discuss with you guys today, I considered many things. Some of them even more serious in nature, like about writing and stuff. But after much soul searching and careful consideration,…

Things That Make You Go, Hmmm by Ethan Day

Things That Make You Go, Hmmm by Ethan Day

When preparing to write this post I couldn’t for the life of me, decide whether or not I had anything to actually say. That’s tough for a guy like me to admit – you know, being all loud-mouthed and stuff. I pride myself on being able to provide a constant stream of information, albeit mostly of the completely useless variety, but still. I have my pride!  :grumble: My short-comings notwithstanding,…

Southern Decadence by Ethan Day

Hello one and all! Considering I’m once again back at the helm is further proof that the rumors aren’t true! Wave was not rushed the nearest psych-ward after my last post in February. I knew I was being railroaded when the CDC released their so called findings: that a daily dose of Ethan Day could be hazardous to your health! As if!! I’m just like candy, people! A few licks…

French Kisses by Ethan Day

French Kisses by Ethan Day

As you know, this site doesn’t do things the traditional way of most review sites and I’m somewhat unorthodox (is that laughter I hear?) 🙂 so when Ethan told me that he was doing a piece (sorry, this doesn’t mean what Ethan thinks) 🙂 about his journey for his latest masterpiece I asked for a copy. Of all the authors whose books I have read, I think Ethan is the most unusual because not…

The Truth—and the Myths—About Being a Slut by Rick R.Reed

The Truth—and the Myths—About Being a Slut by Rick R.Reed

Rick Reed is always happy to entertain you and today is no different. You may take exception to some of his conclusions but they are hilarious, regardless whether you agree or not. Here’s what he has to say about being a slut or a cock whore – take your choice. 🙂 ************* I have always considered myself a libertine, someone who subscribes to the old adage: if it feels good,…

Going For The Throat

Going For The Throat

Jordan Castillo Price is our guest blogger today and she talks about frail humans and our vulnerabilities – From the title of today’s post, I’ll bet you thought this post was about vampires, since the pointy-toothed stories Channeling Morpheus, Sweet Oblivion and Hemovore all sprang from my keyboard and my imagination. Yes, and no. I was thinking about the facet of writing that really makes a reader squirm, be it…

It’s All About The Writing

It’s All About The Writing

Josh Lanyon and Nicole Kimberling got together and came up with this unique post after I invited them to be joint guest bloggers on the site. I think Nikki has another career as an interviewer ahead of her. ****************** NK-Today I’m having a conversation with Josh Lanyon about writing.  Not about writing a specific book, series, character or product but about writing in general, as a creative effort, lifestyle and all…

Too Good to be Stu

Too Good to be Stu

If he looks too good to be true, he probably is. I was reading a book – that shall not be named, but it’s no-one who is likely to be reading this, so don’t get paranoid- recently, and the hero was just appalling. Actually the whole book was appalling, but that’s another story, but the hero would have been enough to severely mark the book down for me, without any…
