I'm a writer. I like to take field trips...some places are so inspiring I make frequent visits. I like to take people with me and expose them to the things that are so inspiring to me. This time, I went with a journalist, a journalism student writing a feature story, and a science major.

The Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center is one of my favorite places. I personally would love to live in the basement…

Why do readers buy what we write?

        Good Wednesday morning, my cats and kittens, and welcome to another writer's rant.  I have it on good authority that a number of my readers at this humble soapbox are independent authors like myself.  In an effort to help anyone who is fighting the nearly hopeless battle of getting your work in front of potential readers who might actually buy it, I constantly have an eye out for tidbits of useful information, and what I have stumbled…

White leather shoes, fashion or uniform?

I have watched The Knick, a new victorian era piece about the Knickerbocker Hospital in NYC and the interactions between the doctors, nurses, management and even the ambulance drivers. Feels kind of like House only victorian. The question I've got is the main character, Doctor Thackery and the doc he replaces are wearing white shoes. Is it fashion or uniform? I await any answers...
