“Crypto Art (Because I’m a Believer)” by Richard F. Yates

[This piece was originally posted, 4 Mar. 2020, on the Steem Blockchain, because my BLOG there is my main gig. HOWEVER, because I’m all about SHARING, I thought I’d let you non-Steem folks have a look, too! ALSO—Steem is fracturing at the moment, and a new thing is coming this Friday; a large portion of the SteemContinue reading ““Crypto Art (Because I’m a Believer)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Thirteen Hiccups (That Refused to Rule the World)” by Richard F. Yates

The point of creation is… The last click of the clock. My goodness! How frightening! The ceiling was drooping, perhaps from the pressures of… Spider-like, the community scuttled about producing potholes and listening to vibrations and echoes. Webs everywhere… But we knew that Kool aid powder with a little water could make our hair spikyContinue reading ““Thirteen Hiccups (That Refused to Rule the World)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Read a Damn Book – 174: Steaming Mad”

Greetings Citizens! Today, I’m bringing a “classic” work of subversive literature to you for your consideration. Mad magazine has recently ceased publication, but for more than six decades, it was THE source for my juvenile laughter (especially in the ‘70s and ‘80s), BUT does the humor still hold up? Let’s find out!!! [This is a photograph thatContinue reading ““Read a Damn Book – 174: Steaming Mad””

“Breakfast Bunny Bowie Blondie” by Richard F. Yates

Howdy Humanoids, My name is still Richard F. Yates, and I am writing to you because I like to write, and it’s more fun to pretend I’m writing TO someone rather than just talking to myself. (I’m usually kind of mean when I answer myself, so I’d rather talk to you folks.) Today, I startedContinue reading ““Breakfast Bunny Bowie Blondie” by Richard F. Yates”

“To Do List (8 Feb. 2020)” by Richard F. Yates

This morning, I sat down with my notebook (and the notes that I’d sent myself on my phone), and I wrote up everything that I could think of that I wanted to complete, both short- and long-term goals… Here’s what I came up with… SHORT TERM —Order Uncle Randy’s books (and restock some of theContinue reading ““To Do List (8 Feb. 2020)” by Richard F. Yates”

“The Story of a Painting (and Other Weird Stuff…)” by Richard F. Yates

I’m also including the things I was doing AROUND creating this painting—becauseContinue reading ““The Story of a Painting (and Other Weird Stuff…)” by Richard F. Yates”

“Unpublished Writers Day + Some Self Promotion!” by Richard F. Yates

Sorry! (Not actually sorry…) I didn’t post anything yesterday, but I think I have some good excuses: I was really busy, out of town for most of the day, and I’m old and fell asleep on the couch as soon as we made it back to town! (Like I said…SORRY! That’s two times in JanuaryContinue reading ““Unpublished Writers Day + Some Self Promotion!” by Richard F. Yates”

“To MAKE NEW or PROMOTE EXISTING Works???” by Richard F. Yates

One of my biggest failures has been my inefficiency at PROMOTING my newest works—because before I’ve even finished most projects, I’m well on my way towards working on the next one. Before I’d even uploaded my newest book to the self-publishing site (I use KDP—if you know a better means of self publishing, I’m willingContinue reading ““To MAKE NEW or PROMOTE EXISTING Works???” by Richard F. Yates”

“Artist Wishes He Had Time for Art!” by Richard F. Yates

I’m an artist and a writer—but lately, between renovating my new art room, trying to get ready for next weekend’s Unpublished Writers’ Conference, working on my online presence, and all of the other LIFE stuff out there… I really haven’t done very much writing or drawing or painting lately. [Sad face…boo hoo hooo… HA! Not really.Continue reading ““Artist Wishes He Had Time for Art!” by Richard F. Yates”
