Take The Tour

Why visit this site?  Well, let’s take the tour…

 

HOME – Here’s where the new posts will show up.  We’re going to cover a lot of ground – news, reviews, amusing stories, advice, recommendations, curios, story ideas – and almost everything will appear here before it goes on to the individual sections.  Speaking of which…

ABOUT – Want to know about me?  Want to send me an email?  Here’s where you go.  But then, you already know that – you’re reading this, after all – so let’s move on to…

NEWS – There is a lot going on in my world and my writing career right now, and you’ll be able to see it all here.  Plus I’ll put up links to other noteworthy stories, too.  Which brings us neatly to…

LINKS – It’s a big world out there, full of people I know, people I admire, things I recommend and places to go.  Follow these links to check out some great websites and hear some great stories.  Or, if you’d rather stick with my stories…

SHORT STORIES – Over the next year I’ll be posting extensively from my back catalogue, covering thirty years of writing.  Right now I might be focusing on sci-fi/fantasy, but I’ve moved between the genres over the years.  These stories range from hauntings to killer cats to zombies to doomed romances to killer squirrels to bad house buying choices to killer dirty dishes (yep, you heard that right).  I’ll even throw in a couple of the stories that got me started at the age of eight and nine.  They’re all absolutely free – read ‘em and let me know what you think.  With each story, I’ll be providing a “The Story Behind The Story” post, where I’ll talk about where the idea came from, what I was trying to achieve, what the story taught me about writing and its influence on my future projects, which seems a good time to move on to…

PROJECTS – Right now it’s all about Wrathful Skies, but it’s not the only thing on my radar.  I love writing, I want to make a living from it, I want to cover a lot of ground, and this is the spot to find out what I’m working on.  The best way to improve as a writer is to write, after all, but if you’re looking for shortcuts…

ADVICE – As Bismarck said, “only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”  I invite you to learn from mine.  I’ve been writing for thirty years and mistakes, I’ve made a few.  I’ve also learned a huge amount and if sharing that means you get to the best part (being paid to do something you love) in less than the time it took me, then I will consider my time well spent.  I’ll be posting both my own advice and links to the advice of others, and maybe one day I’ll add a forum so writers can discuss things among themselves.  That, though, is for the future, when www.robertlassen.com is fully up and running, with its very own…

HOME – And we’re back to the start.  I know, I know, that tour would be even better as a video with an awesome stirring soundtrack (John Williams, I’m thinking of you).  In the meantime, please check out the site for content, keep coming back to see what’s new, and please click on the follow icon or the sign-up sheet to get the updates hot off the press!
