By the time you read this I’ll be on a writer’s retreat, of sorts. More details on that when I get back, but it’s been a busy writer’s life for me lately. So busy that I haven’t had a chance to do a writing round up for nearly a month. Let’s get started:
On The Dake Page, you can check out a series of posts related to climate change science, and the communication thereof, as well as exposing climate change denial. Here’s a list:
- Making Sense of Climate Denial – An Online Course
- How to Communicate Climate Science to All Three Target Audiences
- An Open Letter to the 2016 Presidential Hopefuls re: Climate Change
- Why Climate Deniers Desperately Need the “Pause” in Warming; and Why the Pause is Not a Pause
On Hot White Snow I’ve had a few microfiction madness experiences that leave the mind boggled:
And here on Science Traveler we’ve taken a look at the science of the earthquake in Nepal and a whole host of other Lincoln and Tesla-related projects:
- Science Traveling: Why the Devastating Earthquake in Nepal is Not Unexpected
- Book Review: Abraham Lincoln: Philosopher Statesman by Joseph Fornieri
- The Civil War Ends – And Abraham Lincoln is Assassinated
- Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla – Connected by Fate
- Nikola Tesla Day and Spirit Awards
- CPRC Annual Spring Meeting
Among other activities have been trips to see some “once-in-a-lifetime” displays of artifacts and documents, lectures at the National Archives, new e-books coming out, plans for major travel to the Scandinavian countries, and the End of the Civil War as we know it. More on all of these when I return.
As with most writer’s retreats, I’ll be off the grid for much of the time so I can focus on writing the book about Thomas Edison. The book is due to the publisher in August and should be in Barnes and Noble stores by early 2016. I’ll also be putting the finishing touches on my new e-book, Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla: Connected by Fate, due out in June.
See y’all in a week (with occasional pop-ins as possible). It’s off to a writer’s life for me!
