Books to read. Coffee to drink. Stories to write.

Mindful Monday, July 20, 2020

Today, I’m thinking about Slow Media. There’s been chatter lately about a “cashless society” where we can only make purchases using apps and cards. Every so often, news of a shocking data breach comes to our attention (more on this later), and we discover our information may have been sold or given away to unknown entities. We hear of a new app or service and want to participate, even though we know it mean, sigh, yet another password and yet another AI tracking, analyzing, using, or even selling our preferences, shopping habits, interests, and reads/views.

Writing Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Good Writing Wednesday, friends. I am resisting the urge to put an exclamation point up there after the word “Wednesday.” My natural instinct compels me to do it, but I’m in editing mode these days and more aware than usual about things like punctuation. I’m also trying to get away from using the word “peeps” in an effort to sound more mature, i.e. my age. What’s next? I actually start using moisturizer on a regular basis?
