The Author Is Not The Character

Posted by Shannon Haddock on July 20, 2018 in Rants |

I saw something today asserting that you could tell J. K. Rowling’s real political beliefs by something Harry Potter does several times in the series.  This is utter motherfucking nonsense. Yes, you can sometimes glean an author’s politics from their works, but not from the actions of one character, even if that character is the viewpoint character!  […]

The Yearly List of “What I’ve Been Reading”

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 26, 2018 in Uncategorized |

I noticed it’d been a bit over a year since I did a post about what I’ve been reading, and that one was about a year after the last one, so, what the hell.  I’ll make it a tradition. So, the list (links are to Goodreads, because it’s what I’ve got open to make sure […]

The Dumbest Author Blog Post Ideas I’ve Found

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 17, 2018 in Rants |

I was looking for the list I was working through and mostly mocking last year as I’d misplaced where I’d copied down the ones I wanted to do.  I couldn’t find it, but I did find some spectacularly dumb ideas. And, yes, all of these were from lists allegedly targeting authors.   “Hijack the news . . […]

Questions To Ask Before Writing A Novel And A Realization

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 10, 2018 in Rants, Writing process |

These are compiled from various sources and occasionally rephrased some. And the questions will, of course, be followed by my commentary.  And the answers for one of my current works-in-progress, something that presently has the wonderful working title of Ren/Vik.  I am so good at titles! 1)  What is the protagonist’s biggest regret?  (This is […]

Time For Another Edition of “Things I Said While Revising”

Posted by Shannon Haddock on December 11, 2017 in Uncategorized |

This time there are two cats with me! But still no other humans. ‘”If’ . . . ‘since’ . . . ‘so long as’!” “‘Bloody’ is what I’m hearing there.” “That is a horrible sentence.” “That wasn’t so bad.” “Ah!  Don’t do that!”  (This was at myself after, while trying to italicize something, I accidentally deleted everything […]

The Patreon Bullshit

Posted by Shannon Haddock on December 10, 2017 in Rants |

(And probably other stuff because it will be a miracle if I ever make a blogpost that doesn’t wander all over the place.) So, for those who don’t know Patreon is a site that basically lets you pay people various amounts of money on a recurring basis in return for various rewards . . . […]

Disrespecting Fans By Not Publishing Crap . . . And Other Stuff

Posted by Shannon Haddock on November 16, 2017 in NaNoWriMo, No More Lies, Rants, Writing process |

It looks like entitled whiny “fans” have stopped saying (for the most part) that authors “owe” them books on a certain timeframe. Alas, this does not mean that they’ve stopped being entitled whiny “fans”.  Far from it.  Instead their new tactic seems to be to whine that the author is “disrespecting their fans” . . […]

I’ve Done It!

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 9, 2017 in Crown of Eldrete, Writing process |

The Crown of Eldrete is, so far as I can tell, now removed from all ebook markets.  The print edition still exists because it’s more tricky than just clicking a button or two to remove a print edition from Amazon/Createspace, but since as far as I can tell Mom is the only person who ever […]

What I’ve Read Since The Last Time I Did A Post Like This

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 5, 2017 in Uncategorized |

For a few years I was making grand plans to get stuff I’d wanted to read for ages and not gotten around to read.  The end result of these plans was that I pretty much wasn’t reading anything, because I’d be trying to read those books when I didn’t really feel like it, and I wouldn’t […]
