Just to let you all know: I’m moving my work, and my new updates, to davidellisdickerson.net. Please go there and sign up for updates, my mailing list, and all the other things you’d normally do.
Why the change? For professional reasons, I had to purchase a full WordPress site in order to get a site where all the widgets work (especially MailChimp), and in order to do that, I had to get a .net site. (My old .com is still being camped on by a spammer, damn it all.)
Sorry for the inconvenience! This is the cost of going pro. Sigh.
(P.S. While you’re there, look up Greeting Card Emergency #72: Bad Weather. It never appeared on the old site for some reason, but it’s there on the new one. You’re welcome!)
In case anyone is interested enough to listen for one whole minute.
Yes, I know it’s ten days late. But I didn’t want to have to wait a whole year to use this idea again. Try to remember how we all felt in this country ten days ago, and enjoy.
For those of you unfamiliar with it, National Novel Writing Month is an occasion where, for all of November, various people commit to writing a 50,000-word novel in 30 days. Back in 2011, just to be on the safe side, I “wrote” a novel titled “The Zombie Who Cried ‘Brains’ Fifty Thousand Times.” The title is self explanatory. Thanks to cut and paste, I finished in three minutes.
Today, for April Fools Day, I hereby offer a FREE COPY of the PDF of that novel, “published” under my pseudonym of Dixon Chance. Just send me an email until midnight tonight (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will email it to you. You don’t need to thank me. In fact, I think thanking me might violate several local arts ordinances in your area. I’m just happy to have done something special for April Fools this year. Thank YOU.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’m still in the middle of my hiatus (which ends on Easter), but couldn’t resist re-posting this little classic in honor of non-drunken Irishmen everywhere. Enjoy!
Although I have technically attempted to give up this blog for Lent (the better to get other writing done), I couldn’t resist this idea. Enjoy! (And share!)
