Epilogue / Prologue

November 26, 2013


If my blog were a novel, I would have ended it with my last post. That post is the perfect period to the run-on sentence of the last 5 years. It also nicely parallels the end of my novella. I might rewrite my blog as a novel someday, but a blog is not a novel, […]

Movement is Dead, Long Live Sterling Lynch!

March 27, 2012


Did you notice? I changed the title of my blog. The blog is no longer called Movement. Why? Well, there’s basically one main reason, but you will need to click here to find out. No, this isn’t a ploy to lower my bounce rate. If you read the page (NB: not “the post”), you will […]

An Essential Rule To Blog (And Live) By: Don’t Do As I Do!

April 28, 2010


One of the aspects I enjoy most about this blog is that the very same people who comment on a poem, a play, or a song often comment on one of my social and political posts or on a theatre review or on a post analyzing social media. My mind wanders and, thankfully, there are […]

Ottawa To Phoenix And Back Again: Transpose, Transform, Transmute.

March 2, 2010


Holden Caulfield knows he likes a book when he’s done reading it and wishes he could call the author and talk. Mare Biddle is the the kind of reader you hope  will call and talk after she’s read your work. Or tweet you. Or email. Or pick you up at the hotel each morning for […]

February 17, 2010


Previously I mentioned, as a part of my efforts to make an imagined future a present reality, I will be testing different ideas on how best to generate income from an arts-related blog like this one. Essentially, I want to figure out how to be a self-employed author (in the broadest sense of the term), […]

From Ottawa to Phoenix Via Twitter: What’s Your Social Media Success Story?

January 27, 2010


I’m not sure when I first followed @marebiddle on Twitter. I think I remember the moment but it may be a false memory I’ve created because I really want to think I remember the moment. The memory — real or not — is something like this: “Phoenix? Really? Why? Oh well. She’s a playwright too. […]

Yet Another Flavor of Blog: Writing For Mass Appeal

August 26, 2009


A day or two before the Gmen headed west, we received good news. The Managing Editor of Metro (Edmonton) had taken an interest in our publicity material and invited me to blog my Edmonton Fringe experience for Metro. As it turns out, Harry, the Managing Editor, is an old high school friend. He recognized Dave’s […]

The Great Favorite Theatre Blog Twitter Survey: Results and Analysis

June 2, 2009


There are a lot of theatre and theatre-related blogs out there and the sheer volume of choice is daunting, especially for people who are new to the on-line community or who are not intimately involved with a theatre community in a particular region. As previously discussed, choice overload often leads to no choice at all. […]

Why Blog? For The Community, Of Course.

May 25, 2009


A writer might be reluctant to start or maintain a blog because it may seem like she is providing a service for free. She creates content and her readers consume it, giving nothing in return. Why should she provide a free lunch when she has better things to do? While it is fair for a […]
