That’s how long it’s been since my blog has been running. To celebrate that milestone (I missed last month’s true anniversary, but I like the notion of thirteen months better than twelve, anyway) I am making some changes.
I’ve been skating for five months now, and I can honestly say the Derby Monster has grabbed me and will not let go. Instead of fighting my loves and trying to compartmentalize them, I have decided to merge the two. Derby has taught me quite a bit about being a writer, and vice versa. I’ll tell you all about it, soon, right after I get this new layout squared away.
There will still be fantastic stories–of mystical women, some who can control fire and minds, and others who will knock you onto your face with a twitch of the hip, or slide through a fingerbreadth of space as if it were a chasm.
So, welcome to Hell and Wheels, the next transformation of the dark fantasy writer Avery DeBow’s blog. I’ll be back soon with my first post about what derby has taught me about being a writer and how “It’s Okay to Do This”

Yeup, which is why I have re-arranged my schedule. I finally realized I do not NEED to produce a new piece every day or week or month or ever again. If it bores me who loves the form it must be absolutely tedious to them who read it.

Travis — Thanks.Walking Man — Stagnation is a constant threat. If I'm boring myself, there's no hope of entertaining others, right?

Good, means you're not stagnating as a writer, blogger or, a Roller Derby Queen.
