Mostly here: Rhoneisms at

But also here: – Celebrating The Unique Pleasures of Analog(ue) Writing.

And his books, here: Looking back, I see I read Patrick’s Some Thoughts About Writing back in 2014, so I’ve been following him since before then.

Show up. Be yourself. Write. Put it out there for people to read.

If it is good, people will enjoy it. People like to share their enjoyment. If that fails, keep repeating the first three steps. If that works, keep repeating the first three steps.

And don’t forget The Cramped, for the sheer joy and power of paper and pen.
