About

Short Version: This is a personal blog about writing, with some technology and photography tossed in.

Long Version: My name is Dart. About 1,000 guys in America may have that as their first or middle name. It can be short for “Darton”, an English word that means quiet, peaceful meadow. Or deer park. Or a forest of deer or something else depending on your alcohol intake. Obviously it is from England.  Or Scandinavia.

The word “Scape” means an extensive view, scenery, a picture or representation according to dictionary.com. Examples include Landscape, Waterscape, Cityscape, Mindscape, Moonscape, Seascape. Thus, Dartscape is my extensive view of life, the universe and beyond.  For those of you who are older than the hills, you might remember the very first graphic internet browser for the internet, called Netscape.  This was in the mid-1990s.  It was about that time that I purchased the domain name dartscape.com.  Decades later, the browser known as Netscape is long gone, but I continue onward!

Doing what?

Blogging about the art of writing and my personal efforts to have more of my fiction published. Also, some posts about photography and technology and maybe even science.

As a new writer I’ll be keeping you updated on my two novels I am writing plus my short fiction.  I have a novel with 34,000 words completed, and another novel with 19,000 words. Trigger Warning! I also write poetry.

I don’t do controversial subjects and never politics.
