Welcome to “Belly-up!” — home of the Bloated Blogger.
Lindy Moone is my pen name. I am the author of the recently published, never-to-be-timeless classic, “Hyperlink from Hell: A Couch Potato’s Guide to the Afterlife,” and, coming someday, “Riding the Bull,” and “3 Wize Monkies.”
The title of this blog can change at any time, without warning, so I have given a good two minutes of my extremely cheap time to the decision to call it “Belly-up.” I like Belly-up, at least for now, mostly because it has more than one meaning, and anyone who’s read Hyperlink from Hell knows I’m all over that sh&t. I also like commas. And dashes. Dashes are good.
So belly-up to the blog, boys and girls. There’s no telling how long this will last.
“Belly-up!” is pretty much just me giving self-promotion the finger — while I wipe down the bar. There’s a more “permanent” display of amusements over at Literary (Sub)versions, my “official” author’s website. If you like it, please let me know. (Because I am a big girl. I made it myself. I even drew the pitch-ures! My locus of self-worth is totally external! Love me! Love me, now!)
There are lots of wonderful, well-written blogs out there about the craft of writing. This is not one of those, but here’s one: “The Funnily Enough.” It’s a constantly updated round-up of great articles from the best writing blogs. (It’s curator, “Mooderino,” is a bad-ass inspiration for writers, bloggers and critiquers everywhere. His own blog, Moody Writing, has been invaluable to me.)
When it comes to self-promotion, I have no urge to spit in the wind of the great Internet wilderness, howling, “BUY MY BOOK!”, so this is not one of those blogs, either, except in the most tongue-in-cheeky fashion. (It’s hard to spit and howl at the same time, even harder with tongue in cheek.) Instead, I offer you classy, literary fare you will find nowhere else (like Toilet Karma) and cocktail recipes, in The Cocktail Alphabet from Hell.
(Love me! Love me, now!)
