Gosh! It’s dusty around here. I’m sorry about that! I don’t have an excuse for you, but I do have some reasons. Synonyms of the same thing? Perhaps!

On Monday, I have a fun little post called “Laws of Physics, Applied to Fiction”. It shows ways you can apply physics to the art of fiction–more specifically, the laws of motion and friction. They really do apply! Come back tomorrow to see how.

On Tuesday, I give you my litany of excuses reasons about what has kept me so busy since my list “gosh I’ve been busy” post about the cruise. It’s about the edit process for Face in the Magic Mirror, plus more.

And on Thursday, I have a “Recent Research” post prepped on language–something we all, as readers, just love.

On a personal note, my new job started last Monday, and this past Friday, I officially completed or transitioned all my business analysis stuff. So tomorrow, I will be a Product Manager 100% of the time. Some of you have found my LinkedIn identity as a Product Manager and requested a connection. I’m afraid you might find that connection a little dull, because it is only about my day job, all the time.

I’m thinking about starting another LinkedIn identity for my identity as a blogger and a writer. I really do need to keep the two worlds separate. But if I do, I think I violate LinkedIn’s term’s of service. I am already violating Facebook’s terms of service by maintaining an account for family stuff and another account for readers, author buddies and publishing folks. I don’t know why there is a rule against this.

Starting another account feels a little redundant, but LinkedIn offers stuff that Facebook just doesn’t have and as far as I’m concerned, Google + seems to be a total flop that just gives people more ways to spam you.

Do you use LinkedIn for publishing and writing connections? And do you think I’m wrong about Google +?
