Genocide by poverty

The richest 400 Americans are now worth over $2 trillions 

a typical middle class family ...at or below the poverty line
...no developed country has a higher percentage of kids in poverty 
than we do...
Yet the House of Representatives has just cut food stamps 
for people who don’t have enough money to feed themselves.

The Center for Fiction

The Center for Fiction, a great place in Manhattan and online for writers and readers.
Also, "the only nonprofit literary organization in the U.S. To sign up for their blog newsletter is free and and updates include presentations, grants, classes, reading groups and programs for kids. They also "recognize the best in the world of fiction through our annual awards" and have a rare book shops. 
By the way, I posted one of my favorite books on writing and life: Roger Rosenblatt's "Unless It Moves The Human Heart". Have a moving day!

Free tutorial on Facebook for business.


With Internet and social media scaling a virtual box, the world is not out-there it is at our finger tips.

An article published Wednesday, July 21, 2010 on Facebook sums it up: Scaling Facebook to 500 Million Users and Beyond, and 100 billion hits per day. Nothing wrong for one that doesn’t subscribe to "things used to be better" Than caves, smoke signals,  life in constant peril?

This freebie I share just got it, "An Introduction To Facebook For Business" from HubSpot, downloaded to PDF,  eyeballed it but haven't studied it. Business is selling: products, ideas, image or writing.

Don't let a rocky start keep you from writing a TV series or screenplay!


Met Danny Damus at the Willamette Writers Conference in Portland. Danny's manner and workshops so impressed me that I signed-up right away to receive his News Letter from NOBULLSHITSCRITP CONSULTING. 

Just finished devouring the one I got today, and its  chock-full of free and great information! Yes, I am into spreading the "free" because writing can be so very expensive.

Labor Day for fun and free...not empty promises


Maybe do fun and free? Not merely linger in crowds and overspend but rest and have a pleasant experience.

Well, how's about free and relaxing reads to enjoy with a cup or glass of your favorite, at home, the beach, local cafe, or after the before. Books can take us anyplace, from the deepness of desire, to realms unknown plus adventures galore.

For writing and marketing, there are tons of sites, most full of empty promises or set up to get our dollars, and others are like sinking into annals of endless bs pits. But... some sites do as they promise, and for authors and readers that is a lot. One worthy site is Book Club, where one can get free books no questions asked, or at eye popping discounts for downloading!

I use a free Amazon Kindle Cloud reader, PllllleeeeeaaaaSSSSS NO I don't work for Book Club or Amazon! This post is a freebie for those who cometh to my site...to thank you... not a buck maker for me.

As a writer, the last thing I want is to give away my pearls of soliloquy; however, I want to be read. Book stores and Libraries are great hangouts, but for reads to keep in a device Book Club is where for free, or a small price, I can get into authors I usually would not. So, when I get my big-one out I will use Book Club to sell because the new authors I get free, and like I follow on their websites or blogs.

Happy un-laboring Labor Day!

Tutors or sports and video games


While American parents spend time and money encouraging ball games, video games and pay coaches exuberant amounts. Asian parents push smarts and money on tutors, learning applications, and intellectual development such as art, music and creative brain not brown physical activities.
Soon American idustry will lose their sweatshop labor source in Asia so they must grow it in America. In Asia youth is exveeding in America students are falling way behind and teachers as well as schools get less of the tax payer buck thereby the race to dumb-down American youth to feed the labor market with low wage workers is on. 
You might say, how can that be? Those industries making money in America are American! Well, not really. The top 10% no longer consider themselves Americans, their yachts, jets, homes and families are worldwide. Their loyalty is where they spend their money, educate their kids, and bed for the night, not at where their money is made.

Women in the news: Sandberg

Sandberg, is the author of, "Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,"  a book that has "been praised as empowering and attacked as elitist in encouraging women to speak up and advance their careers." No doubt this woman has a lot to share since she is Facebook's famous chief operating officer. Facebook exec Sheryl Sandberg to kick off 'Women's Voices' lecture series today in Sacramento
