Quotes of the Day
“To be clear, PG isn’t saying that every pirate site for free [or cheap] ebooks is infected with malware, but enough are that it’s a good idea to stay away from all of them….” The Passive Guy
“Because it goes to a very fundamental principle of all nations, which is that our borders should be inviolate, and that our sovereignty should be respected.” Jonathan Finer, a White House deputy national-security adviser, on why Americans should care about what’s happening in Ukraine. (As a long-time legal resident of southern Arizona I can only say LOLOLOLOL…∞)
You Can Comment on Journal Posts
A new writer friend emailed me recently to say, in part, “I engage more when there are comment sections….” So for anyone who didn’t know it, you can leave a comment on any Journal post.
For your convenience, I include the entire post in the email version. I personally don’t like reading only a partial post in an email. It’s annoying to have to click a link that takes me to the relevant website to read the rest of the post, so I won’t do that to you.
That said, comments are always much appreciated because I enjoy the interaction and because they lead to more views by more readers. But there is no “comment” link in the email version.
If you’d like to leave a comment, you have to visit the website. The easiest way to do that is to click either the title of the post in your email or the link to “Read in browser” near the bottom of the email.
Clicking either of those will open the website. Then you have only to scroll down, enter the text of your comment in the large gold box, and click “Post Comment.” If you don’t see a large gold box when you scroll down, click “Leave a Comment” and one will appear.
Talk with you again soon.
See “China isn’t our only intellectual piracy problem” at https://www.thepassivevoice.com/china-isnt-our-only-intellectual-piracy-problem/. Skip the article if you want to, but read PG’s take.
See “This Review Should Not Exist” at https://www.thepassivevoice.com/this-review-should-not-exist/. Again, see PG’s take.
Disclaimer: In this blog, I provide advice on writing fiction. I advocate a technique called Writing Into the Dark. To be crystal clear, WITD is not “the only way” to write, nor will I ever say it is. However, as I am the only writer who advocates WITD both publicly and regularly, I will continue to do so, among myriad other topics.
