I am convinced that writing and publishing a book comes with some type of challenges.  Not simply that writing needs to be done is a certain time frame, but rather that good writing with a lot of improvement needs to be done in a time span which is much shorter.  A blog is much like …
writing quote Scott Card
Frustration is at the heart of writing, but then so is equal parts of passion for what you are writing.  It’s not as easy as it first seems. With the research it takes into writing a non-fiction book, I’m curious as to how a fiction book could be as much work.  It seems on the …
Ever had a day when you just want to find out more about what makes you passionate?  Have you ever thought of a time when writing was a part of your life but not the whole thing? For some people who begin to write, they might be passionate about the subject, but they don’t see …
I’ve not quite got a final draft together for my book, but at this point, there is a good chance with the type of people who will read my book I should consider some self-publishing companies.  One of the companies I am considering is Lulu, which is a company founded in 2002. The question is …
Sometimes any writer can feel like what they’ve done with writing isn’t working. They think what they are writing- be it a book or another blog post isn’t working as well as they want it to. This isn’t entirely correct, it is more as if I have a challenge that needs to be broken down …

I am reminded of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day when it comes to my personal editing. I am ‘blind’ when dealing with my writing, I will find some mistakes but all. I need my editor, and one of the many things they do for me is showing me where the rhythm …
Writing a blog is something I can do as a writer.   It’s the art of improving my communication (my writing) with the readers I have, but then there is writing a book.  People-potential readers- are valuable to a writer, and they are important to how a writer will eventually work as a writer. This …
Writing is supposed to be ‘easy.’  Writing is supposed to be ‘fast.’   The people who say these things are not writers by any means or they are not patient about the art and process of writing a book.  After all if writing was as easy as publishing a book in one or two days, …
