'Twas the Night Before Blog Launch...

'Twas the night before blog launch
And all across the table
Items placed this way and that way
In colors azure to sable.

They represent the writer's moods
Her likes, her passions, her past
And in little subtle ways
Revision in them cast.

So, dear readers, a poet I am not
As obviously you can see
But wait until tomorrow, loves,
To view the blogger I will be!

Revision is a Dish Best Served Cold

Coming to a digital media outlet near you.

What You Talkin' 'Bout Little Lady?

In my last post, I hinted about the topic of my opening post for my blog re-boot. Hopefully it left most of you with the eyebrows raised, dog head tilt, confused frown on your face. Yes? Good. If not, well, you probably have guessed where I'm going with this revision. Good for you. (pat, pat) Put your hand down, stop jumping around, I ain't calling on anyone until after the launch.

So to continue the teaser, the thought of four such vastly different people in one sentence is strange enough. The thought of four vastly different people WORKING TOGETHER and perhaps even getting along as FRIENDS? That's...that's ridiculous.


Come on, now, Cannon. You're dreaming.

Revision, ladies and gentlemen. Dinner and a movie, all in one blog, served for your enjoyment. You even get to insult me afterward and I'll enjoy it.

Box office opens May 1st.

BAM! Sparkles...

Brand Me: BAM! Sparkles...

To be noticed in the blogosphere, a person has to have a unique voice. An "x" factor that makes them different or special that makes them stand out among all the other blogs. Search for "dog blogs" or "cooking blogs" or "parenting blogs" you get millions of hits. How do you choose?

It's the one that hits you with the BAM! Sparkles...

What is BAM! Sparkles...? It's that kind of personality that makes you want to be around a person or an item that demands you collect it or a picture that draws you in just because it's Some people have this kind of personality. And when you can recreate that as a blogger, you can forge a relationship with your fans that becomes a loyal readership.

What is my BAM! Sparkles...?

Well, just to tease you, what do a fundamentalist Christian, a gay black man, an Islamic terrorist, and a Japanese kamikaze pilot have to do with speculative fiction?

Revision. It's what's for dinner.

First course: May 1st.

Controversy, Collaboration, and Comments

Blogging isn't for sissies. You want to make people think. I'm not going to intentionally offend people, but revision requires me to bring up controversial issues.

Blogging is about collaboration. I'm not going to be doing this alone. Guests will be joining me along the way, sometimes willingly and sometimes high-jacked off the side of the road. THAT's gonna be fun.

Blogging thrives on comments. I want reactions. Questions. Demands for clarification. Buzz, buzz, buzz. And bring a few friends along to complain, too. I don't mind. In fact, I'd love for you to invite everyone you know to read this crazy post some chick wrote and comment on it. The more the merrier. Even if you troll me, I can take it.

Revision. It's what's for dinner.

May 1st, y'all.

The Darkness Before the Dawn

The dawn of a new blog is almost here. Black background. Sparse posts. Almost like a nailed together wooden frame for a new house.

What will you be seeing? What type of house is being built?

Speculate all you want while I review my options.  New ideas through new eyes, and who can "guest" what else?

Revision is being served.

May 1st

Almost here...

Cold: brutal, frigid, icy

Most of us hate cold, yet cold is an essential part of life. Cold is uncomfortable, making our bodies shiver to try to return to their preferred state of warmth. Cold makes us work harder to balance on iced-over streets.

Cold is one of the best things in the world.

Discomfort helps us learn. Movement helps us stay alive. Work makes us better people.

Learn with me. Live with me through this journey. Let's become better together.


A Dish Served.


It's almost here....

A Dish Served

Dishes are served to guests for the enjoyment of the guests.

Guests don't come to the table hear rambling tales about the host's adventures or boring slideshows of the host's vacations.

Guests come to be pampered. To be gifted with warm, delicious meals that leave them full yet wanting to come back for more next time.

Would you like to be served dishes with appealing content? Would you like to be served articles of interest from a different point of view?

Revision. Dishes served.

Come be my guest.

It's coming....

Revision's New Vision

What does "revision" mean?

The prefix "re" means again. "Vision" is to look.

Take another look. View it again. See things in another light.

The light bulb burns brighter, the scene becomes clearer.

I can't wait to show you what YOU will see in a new light.

It's coming....

Revision is Coming.

I've been doing it all wrong. All this time I thought I was saying something profound when instead I was simply yelling into empty space. A few people listened. A few people cheered.

But now I know.

Time to Revise.

It's coming.
