We’ve talked about being creative, and we’ve talked about the illusion that everything can be okay when it’s not. What we don’t talk about, even to each other is who can make a change when it’s not something you might want to do.  Yes, we all talk about change about being more creative and how …
I want to have a book published very soon.  Whenever I mention that I have published a book, most people have that reply. The beauty of writing is that any person can do this, but the challenge is not many can finish it, or can even learn to improve.  I was watching Mr. Holland’s Opus, …
I’m a creative person now love me!  Have you ever noticed there is this little inconvenient phenomenon that occurs whenever you are in a crunch for time or under pressure and it seems like you just can’t write?

Mistakes we make as writers… then make again…                 Have you ever noticed that your creative spurts and inspirational deficits come in cyclic fashion? We get on a roll with writing and then for some reason or other (usually life) we stop being able to write. That flow that was coming so easily now just …
I know that writing is hard, at least I can say this out loud to others, but it might not mean much to me mentally. In all of the many things I do each day, writing is one of the most frustrating and challenging things I do.   I can easily sit back and write for …
