NOTE: Regretfully, as we are not yet 100% compliant with the GDPR rules, the Quarterly is not currently available within EU countries
Here’s what’s in the current issue:
Perspectives on transcending the violence in America (and elsewhere around the world)
It’s more serious than you think and the treatment isn’t as bad as you may expect. Learn the risks of avoiding treatment and how it can be dealt with for you or those you care about.
We did it before, in a multi-part series (you can download it here). It’s time for some fresh writing tips–mostly from the web. Like what?
Here’s one tip, from Stephen King: “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
There’s many more–like why “writing rules usually don’t work but guidelines do.” Why not to take crappy first drafts too seriously. “Micro-plotting” and other valuable info for current and would-be writers.
You can’t be much of a writer if you aren’t also a reader. Politics, religion, classic works–you name it, I have read it. So here’s an eclectic mix of books I think you should know about. You may or may not agree with my take on all of them, but they all contribute in one way or another to how I look at the world and how I myself write.
Erica Verrillo, a fellow writer, has much to offer on her oddly named (but aptly, perhaps) blog. Things like:
- writing conferences
- agents accepting new clients
- paying publications accepting submissions
- no-fee contests and more
After much consideration, we find that we cannot do justice to multiple topics in a quarterly edition while meeting our novel publication schedule. Accordingly, our next issue and those following will be an annual. Look for the next one in the spring of 2019. Well before then, all of our sites will be SSL secure (https) AND fully compliant with GDPR so they will be available around the world (except for well-known hacker havens).
We have some doozies this issue, from serious to surprising: from cloud security and web-connected appliance privacy to the unexpected way we rid ourselves of fat. Like making your Dropbox account more secure, beware of the “smart toaster,” and the unlikely way your body rids itself of the fact you consume. You’ll be amused and enlightened by these.
