Wow. 2017. Won't be sorry to see this year go, will we?
It's December, and you know what that means! (No, DON'T cue the Christmas music.) That's right: This is the last month of new DEAD GUY posts. And while we're still processing the end of our favorite crime fiction blog, we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
I'll be discussing my own blogging plans before we go, but given that there won't be DEAD GUY next year, I thought I'd give you a look at what I would have been saying if I were still the regular Monday blogger here. So here are things I most likely would have posted here in 2018:
There's no such thing as writer's block. Stop it.
Hey! THE HOSTESS WITH THE GHOSTESS came out January 9! Here are all the reasons you should buy it! (And the places you could have pre-ordered it...)
Think about your characters first. Your plot serves your characters; it's not the other way around.
It snowed here this week. The first person who tells me how beautiful and fun snow is will be obligated to come to my house and shovel the driveway.
It's been a year since I began chemo. I'm doing much better now (insert picture of me with hair).
Here are my picks for the short subject Academy Awards...
Can you believe that thing he said yesterday????
Baseball season starts this week. Do not try to contact me on opening day. I will not be available.
My lovely wife and I are taking 10 days and driving the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego to San Francisco (and a little beyond). Here are some photographs!
The only way you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps is if you're hanging by your feet. (An oldie but a goodie.)
How do you add humor to mystery? You don't. The humor has to come naturally from the situation and not layered on like frosting.
After what happened this week, what else can I possibly post about?
Yeah, I don't watch GAME OF THRONES. So the hype is a little irritating.
THE QUESTION OF THE DEAD MISTRESS is being published this week (hi, Terri!)! Here are five reasons you should buy it (but they're really good reasons)!
That was a heck of a World Series, wasn't it?
Isn't it time to rename the New Testament (another from the archives)?
In the wake of recent events, I'd like to point out that I'm not that kind of a man and neither are most of the ones I know.
Yeah, Thanksgiving. Great food, but just a harbinger of the "holiday season" and who needs that?
Stop with the Christmas music. Seriously. I get that there are a LOT of Gentiles, but this goes beyond the pale.
Wow. 2018. Won't be sorry to see THAT year go, will we?
Pitchers and catchers report in 71 days.
