- Want to write for Medium, but don’t know how to go about it?
A detailed tutorial from Indies Unlimited will help you get started.
- Although Medium allows you to import already published blog posts, bear in mind that Medium is not the same as, say, WordPress.
You might find yourself writing different content for these two platforms.
- Note: The posts I’ve linked to have important info in the comment threads as well. Don’t forget to check out the comments.

- Emily Dickinson is nobody’s business but my own. I will not share her with anyone. I would no more tell you about my relationship with her poems than I would tell you about a love affair. If she is yours, I hope you feel the same way.” — from Mary Ruefle’s essay “My Emily Dickinson” quoted in The Paris Review
- “Some are surprised that the rigorous analytical approach PG learned to apply to poetry has served him quite well in analyzing contracts and other legal documents.” — from the Passive Guy’s post on The Passive Voice blog
How do you read poetry? Do you as a reader note, for instance, prosody — the patterns of rhythm and sound? In your opinion, should poetry be analyzed? Simply enjoyed? Both? Do share in the comments.
- Just one more thing (as Columbo would say): head over to Indies Unlimited to vote for your favorite flash fiction entry (will it be mine?). Hurry: the voting closes at 5 pm Pacific time today. Thank you.
- For some strange technical reason when I post the link to the voting page, it doesn’t open properly: it shows the results, and doesn’t give you an option to vote. So, if you really really want to vote for your favorite entry, please go to Indies Unlimited, open the post ‘Which “Ocean of Sand” Flash Fiction Story Gets Your Vote?’, and vote from there. This should work. Thank you.
And if you enjoyed this post, press those “like” and “share” buttons. Thank you again.

“Experts tend to fill their novels with esoteric information that gets in the way of the story, so choose your atmospheric/tech descriptions wisely…Because what the vast majority of people want is good stories. They couldn’t care less about the science. Readers want realistic characters, not realistic science.”
— author Gordon Long on “Why Scientists Shouldn’t Write Science Fiction”
“Just because I don’t write four books per year doesn’t mean I think it’s impossible. I can’t run 100 meters in under ten seconds, but Usain Bolt does it all the time.”
— Shawn Inmon in response to Lorraine Devon Wilke
