The fact that this was a debut novel blows my mind. The story, the characters, every little detail seems to be woven in with a […]

Join Me On My Journey

Community is important for a writer. Writing is such an isolated task, that we can forget who we’re writing for. The reader. Building a connection can make a big difference to a writer. Trying to turn writing into a career also takes time and funds. I have the time now. Funds could be better. Funds […]

Read Like a Writer

I’m a reader. When I read, I read for entertainment. I love the escape. But I’m also a writer. Writers need to study the craft. One way to do that is to read like a writer. To that end, I did some research into exactly how one reads like a writer. I discovered this handy little […]

Finding the Groove

Finding my writing groove has been hard. I’m what’s known as a pantser. I write by the seat of my pants. No outline. That’s how I’ve always done it, and enjoy doing it.
