More on Authoring in Markdown

In recent Tweets from my @Crenel account, I have mentioned that writers would be better served by a fully-featured text editor and a basic understanding of Markdown than by the typical word processor included in an "office suite" (e.g., Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect Office, or a free alternative like LibreOffice).

Flash Fiction: Kallmarn's Quest

I've always been a fan of reading and writing long-form fiction, but today I cranked out a "flash fiction" piece that I decided to share here on my site. It's called Kallmarn's Quest and, as that page indicates, the original inspiration behind it was to help my son introduce new players to D20-style gaming. With a complex game it can sometimes be hard to figure out where to begin when explaining it, and I feel that having some context, to paint the big picture, is important before delving into details like how to roll up a new character.
