The Poetry Page @ EverettAWarren.com has finally been updated with some improved content.

On a fairly closely related note, there is now a GreenManEnvy page, which ties in that site, and provides another avenue to help promote GME.

A few other minor changes were implemented throughout the site.

I will be playing fretless bass on some traditional celtic tunes with the trio Wyndfall ~ Chris Laughery (guitar), Tom Reese (flute & pennywhistle), and Laurie Haines Reese (cello) ~ on the patio at Pub Dunegal (Mount Joy PA) today from 5-8pm.

Bring your instrument and play along, or bring your ears and listen!

The pub has great food and craft beer for your eating and drinking pleasure!

Two poem / photo combinations on GreenManEnvy...

The first is Broken / the mountain is crying and the second is The Desolation of Smog / a misguided landscape.

Both poems were inspired by the landscape around the Lehigh Gap, and the results of years of zinc smelting that turned that region into what DCNR bigwigs called "a moonscape". The area is a superfund site, the only one in the country that was repurposed for recreation. Green Man Enviroscaping had a role in rehabilitating and maintaining that landscape for a time, and I am extremely proud of my part in that and in the work by the Lehigh Gap Nature Center.

I just need to get back up there and visit once in a while!

Less than a month (one day less, but still...) after fancifying the feeds on EverettAWarren.com, I discover the site that hosted the feed mechanism has gone 404. I'm now using the primary hosting for those scripts, so hopefully that fixes the situation. And that just ate into my time I was going to make a few enhancements...

Speaking of which... comments on the site? I'm thinking about getting rid of the Tolkienesque font, but I haven't gotten a lot of feedback on how that looks, especially on different size devices.
ellyssian: (Default)
The next round of changes over at EverettAWarren.com have been completed.

The main fix was to get rid of those really ugly iframe blocks to show content from this blog on the site. The clunky frames have been replaced with CSS-prettified RSS feeds. This brought about an unplanned but welcome change in that links throughout the site now show a dotted underline when you hover over them.

On a couple pages ~ specifically services and writing ~ content will now show and hide itself by clicking on text that will show the same hover behavior as the links.

I made a few minor tweaks and additions in content, and a few other minor prettifications, as I worked through the changes.

I'm pretty happy with how things are looking. The Tolkienesque font for the buttons is still moderately cheesy, but I like how it looks better than the other dozens of options (out of the gazillions of fonts I have installed) that I took the time to look at. Then again, I am a fantasy author, and a programmer... so if Tolkienfonts fit, wear 'em, I guess.

The bread crumbs for navigation are still to come. The RSS changes are significant enough that I wanted to get this out now and not risk starting on the crumbs without the time to finish and deploy the changes tonight. When the crumbs do appear, should the old standby bottom-of-screen navigation go away? Let me know what you think ~ I'm curious!

Just when I had caught up with my coursework, I went and spent all day yesterday working through all the pages of EverettAWarren.com to match the appearance of the changes made on the splash landing the day before.

I'm now half a day behind on lectures in the Systematic Program Design course ~ although I wrapped the lectures in the Digital Media & Mobile Apps course ~ and I have a nearly mostly almost usable website as a result.

Most of my time was spent on a somewhat known bug with Safari, and various workarounds thereof, involving onload and the DOM. Theoretically, the onload event triggers after the page has loaded completely. Safarially, the onload triggers prior to any elements being loaded, even if you move the script to the last part of the page, and no matter if you make the proper sacrifices, chant the appropriate chant, and check windspeed and direction prior to loading the page.

I could see that Safari could run the exact code ~ it did so in a JSFiddle ~ but couldn't do it on its own.

In a production situation, I would have bagged the image maps ~ the problem came in while trying to resize the maps with window resizing ~ and gone with individual buttons much sooner than I did, or forced a static window size, but it was just too much fun playing with some more complex Javascript than I have in a while.

The current state of the site:
  • CSS implemented across the site
  • All pages changed (with the exception of the EARN Financial Plan Calculator) to use the CSS
  • Some updates to content as I noticed they were needed
  • Navigation to all major pages completed
  • Main graphic simplified to improve load times


I still need to:
  • Improve the graphics on the small buttons (they've been resized up and down as I figured out the best size, and are fairly fuzzy as a result)
  • Build graphics for the various tags on the blog page
  • Get rid of the ugly iframe handling of the blogs and use RSS or something that can be integrated into the site
  • Breadcrumbs and/or clean up the original text link navigation
  • Write the poetry page already
ellyssian: (Default)
There are going to be a lot of changes over at EverettAWarren.com...

Some of them have already made it to the landing page!

Although I still want to keep the site simple and straight-forward in support of the multiple primary purposes it has (promote my writing, host my resume, promote my business services), I do want it to look a little less basic and more spiffy, as it were.

After the initial facelift ~ which I still need to carry out across the site ~ and a tiny bit of refactoring, I'll be improving the navigation. Prettifying it, really, as it works now... but I'll be using buttons instead of text links, and that sort of thing. After that, I'll finish the refactoring and get everything cleaned up, especially CSS-wise. In that way, the site will better reflect my coding ~ although it will still be on the simpler side. It just doesn't need a whole lot of bells and whistles.

As a further in-construction disclaimer, the main image on that splash page is currently huge, with ridiculous load times. That has already been fixed, and will get better once I push the next round of changes out.

The Skeleton in Armour

By Everett A Warren

an excerpt, slightly but not nearly completely edited



My client was dead to begin with.



I'd say that you needed to understand this, or nothing after would seem wondrous strange, but this isn't Dickens and it's not even London. There, I would expect the cobblestones to be lousy with big lugs like this, crawling out of their mounds or wading ashore, as leaky as their tubs they sank to the bottom in, but this is Longfellow's town. It doesn't matter what manner of mischief came over with the Pilgrims, nor what slipped to our shores since from the Old Country or Older Countries, if you catch my angle, but the last thing I thought I'd see standing there dripping all over my fine Persian, one meat hook holding the damask canopy around my bed aside, filling my room and then some, was a massive Viking warrior in full battle array, just several centuries past his prime.


He set the axe down and I took a breath, thinking this just might not be the last thing I see, which took a load off, I can tell you. He almost crushed the little folding number I leave out for my dressing gown, and him not even skin with those bones, because whatever flesh he had fed the fishes long ago. I didn't quite hear his sigh -- no lungs, no air, you know how it is -- but it was there nonetheless as he settled into the chair.




I took a moment to compose myself, then quickly reached behind me and gave out my own little sigh of relief, with real live breath included, no less. My sweet butler sleeps deeply, but not that deeply, and I didn't want to have to replace the furniture if he woke up to find Snorri Skeletonson here in his squeeze's boudoir. Although an ogre's handy to have around for all kinds of reasons, I was more than happy to remember he was working down the docks to make some folding green while seeking his return to a more upscale vocation. As strong as he is, and no matter how I like him by my side, I don't think I would have been able to prevent him from being destroyed. See, I have an eye for power, and the bones before me were old, worn... and if their power were liquid, it wouldn't just drip like the saltwater onto my rug and robe. No, it would put the Molasses Flood of '19 to shame, and I'd have to find a new city to live in.


If I survived.




I shifted to the edge of the bed, leaving the silks behind, and walked across the room. His head turned to watch, flares of light within empty eye sockets following my progress, and me with all the flesh he doesn't have. I am not a modest dame by any measure, and to tell the truth if he had been hale and hearty, I might have done the same. Well, perhaps not, as I would have no need to gather a few things just to chin with my new friend, and I might even just ask him for the robe he's sitting on. Or I might give him lead poisoning, but you can't exactly let daylight into something that's been dead so long there's not a scrap of meat left behind to catch lead.




I grab some salts, some sands, and a little bit of that glitter I picked up at Filene's the other day. I say the words as I walk back towards him, casting a trail of colour with each hand, leaving the marks on the floor in just the right pattern. The glitter? Cut a doll some slack, I was losing out on my beauty sleep and needed something to add a little pretty to my night.




"So... tall, bone-white, and handsome wasn't in my cards. That gypsy girl hyped me, didn't she?"




I sit down in front of him and wait for him to speak. Sometimes it can take a while, but that is all up to them, and there's nothing for me to do but crack light to pass the time. I don't even have to try to think of a good joke, because he jaws almost before I'm even settled in. I listen to what he's got to say, and then I agree to take the case. From somewhere up in there under his deepest blue-green byrnie, where organs used to be, Beowulf's uncle pulls out a bar of gold that looks nearly as time-worn as he does. He sets it down almost gently on the floor at my feet, tops it off with a string of amber, gathers up his weaponry, nods once, and he walks out of the room.



I take it back. Maybe it is wondrous strange. Even with what all I've come across, it certainly plays out something surreal.


I stand, twirl and sweep an arm low, and all the signs and sigils are cleared, carried by little swirls of wind and tidied up in little piles under the armoire and, well, other corners of the room. Out of the way, and harmless enough until some morning when I need something to do. A whisper over the gold and it's off to safe keeping, only a slight haze that fades quickly, and a shimmer of glitter of the genuine variety left behind as I wrap the unfinished raw amber around my neck, glancing in the full length and finding them fair fetching with my fiery red locks. The weight of the gold -- and the even greater value of the amber to the warrior -- is a reminder this little romp won't be duck soup.


To reflect proper gravitas and give Leif Deadguy his due, I smile sweetly at myself in the mirror before a yawn rolls in and swallows me whole. I stretch and collapse into bed, asleep almost before I'm down and covered, visions of runes dancing in my head.

If you enjoyed this little teaser, stay tuned for news of what happens next ~ all I have to do is write it! Simple as that! And, of course, get it edited and published. And all those other little niggling kind of things. You can, however, read an earlier fantasy noir tale featuring this same private investigator, The Hollow Man, which can be found in the pages of Fae Fatales: A Fantasy Noir Anthology.

What do the Beatles, Dr. Seuss, Emperor Norton I, Burger King and McDonalds, Frankenstein and Jurassic Park, Asimov's Revised Laws of Robotics, the freedom fry, and Charlie Chaplin have in common? They all stop in for a visit and help me discuss some of the ramifications of exploring artificial intelligence.

It's no secret that I've always been a fan of James Burke's Connections ~ more the column in Scientific American, but the show as well ~ and, with the spirt of that sort of thing in mind, I tackled the topic of artificial intelligence in the essay On Artificial Intelligence and Machine Men. The essay's been online since 2006, in a serialized hard-to-read format, but it can now be found in one spot on Green Man Envy right here at this link!

Put about 1,800 words on l'Abattoir, breaking the 20k barrier by a little more than 500 when you add it all together. There is now, officially, an Act Three, as the outline (five or so words of it eaten up so far) gives way to "finished" story. Our tiny (150' long, if I recall) ship is tossed as a storm approaches... then we get all kinds of actiony things going on, full of piratey goodness and Lady MacBathory bloodthirstiness and manipulations, before we get to the grand finale...

And from the other day:

Almost 1,000 words on l'Abattoir ~ all the more surprising because:

  1. it was at the dealership while they took care of a recall
  2. it was all in outline form... 1k words in outline form... and theres still a whole lot of the 3rd act that is not fleshed out, and none of the act is what I'd call "fully" outlined! Meaning the 3 acts of this piratey steampunkity (pre-punk, really) story may not be a novella, but might actually end up as a full-sized (but probably not ginormous) novel.


Whodathunkit?


Which was further updated with:

And 1.5k words more... and the outline phrase "land excursion" now has some bones to it... some of them broken, some eaten... Lady MacBathory is having fun now!

Time to switch gears, turn on some sea shanties (non traditional, as they really came from the period of clipper ships, but they help set the mood!) and PotC soundtracks, and write some of this thing!

It's been a while since I've posted anything here, and it's been an even longer while since I've written any poetry.

Boom. Wrote a poem this morning, and here's a post linking to its appearance on Green Man Envy! You can find it there, at the link here:

"You don't talk aelfen royalty and hobgoblin kingpin tangled together without attracting some untoward attentions from every Tam, Dick, and Houri from Brú na Bóinne to Hy-Brasil." And yet, that's exactly the kind of tale a certain hard-boiled PI is going to tell you all about in The Hollow Man, Everett A. Warren's contribution to the anthology.

~ ~ ~

Which anthology? This fantasy noir anthology by Solarwyrm Press!

Your support will make it happen and help support the ten writers whose work graces the pages! There are options to get an e-book or a print copy, and there are other perks for those who can afford to provide more support. If you can't afford a copy at this time, then you can still help us out by liking the campaign, the Facebook page, the pages of the authors, and posting links to any or all of those kinds of things!

Thanks for reading!

This is a week behind the update on my FB author page... I'm trying to keep some delay between the two, but maybe not this much!

1,300 words were added to "l'Abattoir", as I completed the second to last scene of Act Two. Only one whole, entire, barely outlined act to follow!

To be fair, a good number of those words were probably incurred during edits to Act One and the first half of Act Two.

"Empress Awakened" came back from one market and promptly went out to another.

My first collection of poetry is available on Amazon.com (which means it should be able to be ordered through your local bookstore!) Go and check out Poetry from the Porch Period, buy early, buy often, like it, read it, and review it!

All the poems in this collection are nature-based, things I've observed from the porch of my former residence, in the woods of northeast PA. Weather, plants and trees, birds, insects, processions of elves, children, and other sorts of wild critters are featured on these pages.

While prog music is fun, I'm actually referring to functional programming...

Last Tuesday, I started a course on Functional Programming Principles in Scala, from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, taught by Martin Odersky, via Coursera.

Although there's no college credits involved, there is a certificate ~ provided I successfully complete all the assignments and get some decent grades.

It's one of three courses I'll be taking this Autumn, and perhaps the most, forgive any pun, functional. While all of the courses will go on the resume, functional programming and Scala coding are going to be search terms on the job search. Combined with my database programming experience, that should make a pretty powerful incentive for companies to throw some money my way, whether it's as an independent contractor or as an employee.

I'm working through the first real assignment now, although the (not-counting-towards-the-final-grade) example exercise received 10 out 10 points, so things look good so far!

(Of course, it's also fun... I'm really liking the partial application of a function... I can think of a lot of places where I wanted to do that in other languages that just weren't capable of that sort of thing...)

I updated a number of pages on EverettAWarren.com ~ the About... page is better, a bit more tuned for the writing than some of the business services I offer, but in some ways stronger for that as well. There's also a full bio, mostly written back in 2004, with some quick and dirty updates... more needed, and editing, too, but it will work for the interim. The resume and business services page were also updated, mostly to better reflect my experience with database design and programming. Enjoy!

"Empress Awakened" went out to a market and received its second rejection slip. It's now on its way to market #3. "The Sky Galleons of Mediolanum" was rejected from the anthology I wrote it for. It's now on its way to another market. They'll get through someday!

I created an author's page on Facebook... check it out here: Everett A Warren. I still want LJ to post stuff to my regular account, so I'll have to duplicate the writing related posts that originate here, but there will be some original content there as well. The Facebook page is very likely to get the updates first!

I reached out to a bunch of newspapers and a library to help build contacts for future book signings and press releases and so forth. Still have a number of libraries and bookstores on my list, some of which I'll go on personal visits to over the next few weeks.

There's been a lot going on, and it's been very hectic around here, so there hasn't been any writing this past week. I should be getting some more words written down soon.

I heard back from the editor of the anthology I was targeting for Trouble and Captain Jack, and she liked the brief little synopsis I wrote up for the piece, so that's now officially submitted. It's not an acceptance for publication, but the acceptance of a query is still a win, and I'll take it at that!

I wrote 600 words on the green man story, but with all that's been going on, I just didn't put the time to it that I needed to, and it won't happen. While this is a failed deadline, it's my deadline ~ the anthology won't get a submission, but it wasn't expecting one, so I'm only letting me down here.

And now I need to decide what my next target will be...

I expect I'll hold off from seeing what anthologies are coming up, as I need to solidify some other things non-writing-related first. That, and now that I've got my piratey music out of storage and into my music player ~ and seeing it's what I'm taking to the writer's group for critiquing ~ I expect that l'Abattoir is going to get some effort next. Act One made it through the group and is now New and Improved(TM), and I have two scenes left to write in Act Two as well as the entirety of Act Three. Luckily, Act Two is about twice the length of Act One, and twice the word count for pieces to be critiqued, so I can split it and not worry about writing those scenes in time for September's meeting. I expect I'll get them in time for November, especially if I aim for having Act Three (or the first 6k words or so of it!) ready for December!

The top story this week is Mad Max. I wrote 300 words on it, mostly outlines of past history, and I shelved it. It's being set aside from consideration for the anthology on account of it wanting to be much more than the 10k word limit. I think I might try to keep it to a decent novella length work, but the silly thing might end up insisting on being a novel. Don't that beat all.

The anthology isn't out of consideration, though. The briefly codenamed "wild max", now officially titled Trouble and Captain Jack, came into existence, telling a bit of Maxie's past, particularly, how she met the love of her life, Jack. Thus, this story is the priority, and, in addition to those 300 words that went to the shared history of the characters, I wrote 7,300 words over the past few days, and I figure I'm close to wrapping things up. Maybe. These characters are great, and I could probably take another 7,300 words to do the job, but I want to wrap it up a bit sooner rather than later, and come in under the 10k limit.

Ghost Dance made it through editing, so I need to get that ready for submission. It will be going in along with Of the Leaves and of the Waves and Never Ever After, which are still in editing. I have a bunch of markets in mind for Empress Awakened, I just have to select who gets it first and get it out the door.

While Green Man Envy the site is still just a display panel for Green Man Envy the blog, the content on the blog is growing nicely.

There's a music post, three poems (two illustrated by photograph), a follow up set of links on the urban forest project in Seattle (first covered as Green Man Enviroscaping LLC, back in February), an article on considerations made when selecting plants, some classic Italian sculpture in a suitably naturalized setting, and some original art ~ two green men from two talented UK artists.

I'd love to have some more content for the site ~ I don't have any fiction (at this time) which really suits the setting, or I'd drop a story in. More art ~ especially, but not limited to, depictions of the green man or green woman ~ is always welcome. I'm also looking for poetry and articles that aren't by me!

I've got the blog set up on Blogger ~ you can follow it there, on Google+, or on Facebook. There's also a section on the menu so you can grab an RSS feed of the blog. All of the above, with plenty of likes and pluses, is what will really help get word out on GME!
