Reading thing which I recently printed out ( using more printer ink then I think i should) gives me a good chance to look hard at my work. I find it fun to go and take an actual pen and rewrite things and take notes. Fortune has favored me today since one of my readers …
I didn’t like to stare at the computer screen anymore so I picked up the old fashion pen and paper. What a difference, not to mention that my ideas flowed again. I was able to create more then ten new pages for each of the books i am working on. This doesn’t happen when i …
I found that the one thing in common with most of the readers I give my books to have one thing in common they are not readers. This is the best thing that can happen to a writer. If I can get them to read something of mine anything, in seven days or less I …
