Arcadian Article

My article for Outside In Trusts No One is called Neighborhood Watch and it's about The X-Files sixth season episode, Arcadia. It's the one where Mulder and Scully go undercover as husband and wife to investigate disappearances in a suburban gated community, but as seems to be the tradition so far that's not really what I've written about at all.

Outside In Trusts No One is now available for pre-order and published on the 13th of October.

Insecure Writer's Support Group #10

October's IWSG is upon us. Sign up here.

This month has been another good one. Outside In Trusts No One is published in a week and I took part in a panel at a convention about it, albeit virtually. I also publish another batch of seven articles on Medium, but it's become readily apparent that I can't keep up a daily habit for the site, nor that my stock in trade is setting it alight.

This month's optional question:
When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if latter two, what does that look like? 

This month's optional answer:
I am a writer and I get paid for it, but I still see myself as working toward being a working writer. I see it as being able to devote your time to writing whether it is to a single larger project or balancing a number of freelance jobs into a patchwork that pays the rent.

Carruthers Ten Years On: October 2010

October 2010 on the Carruthers blog saw the most popular ever post, namely: Famke Janssen's johnson. Thousands more people were drawn to the blog to that particular post than any other and via some search engine inquiries that would make you blush.

I like Void, Free Cameras, East Meets West, SatHenge and Sing Song Ding Dong.
