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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


Well, at least I have a backup . . . sort of

Posted by Shannon Haddock on May 18, 2017 in Uncategorized |

In late March, Time Machine quit working properly.  It was an easy thing to fix, something I’ve fixed at least twice before . . . basically my computer couldn’t write to the Time Machine drive and it would’ve taken about five to fifteen minutes to fix. But, you see, it would’ve involved rebooting, and I discovered […]


Bragging A Bit

Posted by Shannon Haddock on February 3, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Jake’s Last Mission, which I’m sure most of you have realized by now I consider the best of my published works, is presently #84 on Amazon’s Top Free Kindle Space Opera list.  Also on that list are books by E. E. “Doc” Smith, Andre Norton, Edgar Rice Burroughs, M. C. A. Hogarth, and Eric Flint. […]


Today’s Commentary While Revising

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 30, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Again, home alone except for the cat. “There we go!  Turn the sleaziness up!” “Yeah.” “Nah.” (This and the above were about the same line I’d just added.  And said about five seconds apart.  I changed my mind as soon as I finished typing it.) “Arrggh!  That made it worse!” “Fuck.  I don’t know how […]


Tonight’s Edition of “Things I Said While Revising”

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 24, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Jaye is awake and home this time, but not in the room, so once again I’m talking to myself. “Okay, let’s try that again.” “Argh!” “Ugh.” “E . . . gak!”  (So flustered with a sentence I couldn’t manage words.) “Yeah!  There we go!” “Oh!  Even better!” “What the . . .?” “What?” “C’mon.” “Jesus […]


Looks Like I’m A Hypocrit

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 23, 2017 in Uncategorized |

You know how much I rant about self-pubbed authors not even running spellcheck before publishing? I was just writing a post that contained an excerpt from “Once A Hero, Always A Hero.”  There were two misspelled words in the excerpt.  Fuck. So, uhmm . . . sorry. No one’s complained about the spelling errors, so […]


This is another post that supposed to help me gain followers or something

The suggestion for what to blog about is “Write an article highlighting one of your Pinterest boards and explain how and why you use it”.  I do, in fact, have a Pinterest account.  I even have boards for a couple of my books. So, here, have a look at my board for the cleverly titled Jake’s […]


Things I Have Said To Myself Or The Manuscript While Revising Today

Posted by Shannon Haddock on January 19, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Enjoy this look into my brain.  And, yes, I said all of these aloud.  The cat and I are the only ones here.  What I said to her is a million variants of “Not now, Bella!”.: “Why is he pausing there?!” “I need a name.  Wait.  I have a list of names . . . […]
