NaNoWrimo 2017 – A Fictional Grimoire

The National Novel Writing Month (better known as NaNoWriMo) has begun! The goal has always been the same: write a novel of 50,000 words or more over a period of a month. I’ve personally tried my hand at it, but never did quite get past the first week or so.

This year should be different.

Magic & SEO: The 40 Servants

I’ve mentioned before that Tommie Kelly’s 40 Servants are a viable way of aiding your SEO efforts. Today, I’ll go over three ways of utilizing their services in boosting your website’s position. These are not the only ways you can call on their aid: consider these as seeds for your own ideas. There are, after all, a million ways to make breakfast these days, so why limit yourself?

Uncertainty: Love It or Hate It, You Need It

When you listen to Gordon White’s latest talk with Austin Coppock about what we can expect in 2017, one thing becomes very clear: a butt-load of uncertainty is filling the air. Plus a lot of fire. And a couple of eclipses, retrogrades, and whatnot.

So what’s a person to do? Well, you can build a boat.

Courtesy: It’s Why You’re Not Dead

“Can a magician kill a man by magic?” Lord Wellington asked Strange.
Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. “I suppose a magician might,” he admitted, “but a gentleman never could.”
