pens and journals There is a fine line between writing a book to the point it will be published, and just doing something for fun, a hobby if you will.  Not everyone can be writers, and most will complain of the distractions of everyday life.  At some point, a writer will begin.  They don’t spend …
Blogging and writing- and expanding what I have to offer to the world- are about setting time lines a person can follow.  For a while, I’ve not really had a ‘writing schedule’ where I spend a certain time on my writing.  It’s because I’m not used to being a writer in the true sense of …
When you are writing your first book it seems the book itself is done in a few days. It’s not, there is so much more to do than simply stuff words to a page.  After all the research that goes on in the background it seems the writer has it made.  After all, it’s all …
