Luck: A User’s Manual

Here’s a site that friend wants me to critique. I’ve read through it a few times and I think I understand the words, but I there is something basic that I don’t get.

Please check it out and tell me what you think of it. Leave comments here, even if you have nothing beyond a vague feeling.

I am missing the point somehow. How can we focus the site onto what is important? How can we render this into one simple sentence that makes people really want to read more? I know a bunch of writers read this blog and in writing terms we need to tighten the view. We need to get the reader to see through the eyes of the webmaster. What needs to be done?

I am not fond of the template used. I hope that whenever you see orange graphics or text on a web page that you think “cheap websites R Us dot com”. That is not what is wrong, however. It could still be a good site if we can fix the content.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
