So, I’ve started an occasional writer’s blog;
The World of Mules A Writing Heretic’s Views

Ogden Nash, writing the accompanying notes for Saint Saens’ Carnival of the Animals, lined, for the Wild Ass (donkey): In the world of mules, there are no rules.

The blogosphere is chock-a-block with writing tips, instruction, suggestions, and maunderings from writers of note and people with one self published book to their credit and who are “building a platform” whatever that means. All of these well intentioned people are under the illusion that writing has rules that, if followed will lead to success–or something akin to that. Now, I am not one to spoil anyone’s fun, but after knocking out a fair bunch of traditionally published books (okay they’re genre fiction not real books, I know) I am here to tell you that with writing, as with Nash’s mules, there are no rules. This blog, when I remember to post, will explore the way people write, don’t write, and tackle the creative process generally.
