The People of the Real Middle-Earth by MM Pollard

Posted by Guest at Jul 26, 2015 10:14 pm in , , , , , , ,

For most English-speaking people, the term “middle-earth” conjures images from J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings.

Four cultures who had influence in the British Isles during the […]

Are You a Random Writer or Deliberate? By Sally J. Walker

Posted by Guest at May 19, 2015 12:00 am in , , , ,

Because as a species we humans recycle the experience of life, the stages of living, the perennial cycle […]

When I was younger, nine times out of ten my father fell asleep in middle of the movie we were watching at the local theater. As a child, I couldn’t understand how it was possible. We didn’t see that many and it was before we could watch movies at will a few months after they […]

Earth is mostly water, and even though we have been on the moon and some parts beyond, we are still painfully aware we don’t know everything that’s under the seas right here on this planet. Each time we think there’s nothing more to be revealed in its depths, something new and surprising comes out of […]

Pantser or Plotter … or Somewhere In Between?

Posted by Guest at Sep 11, 2014 1:09 am in , , , , , , ,
