There isn’t a challenge where you simply go and start typing.  There are emotions upon emotions that factor into the idea of getting back into your writing.  This is especially true when you have stopped for a long while.  All those lovely blank journals you bought when you were writing that are, sadly, still blank. …
A long time ago, I would say in 2009, I wrote on the website HubPages, and while it was good, it also had some serious drawbacks to it.  One of them was as long as I produce some sort of content, and fast, I was able to create a small penny wise income.  I was …
There are millions of writers out there.  I’m not disputing this fact.  What I am asking is where have all the writers gone? Emerson quote You can argue that everyone who has published a book is a writer. Not a problem, I agree with this statement, but this is untrue. Writers need a brand, a …

By Charles E Wells I’d like to thank Rebecca Emrich for letting me share my opinions on her blog, but be careful, I have a tricky sense of humor and I’m not afraid to use it. My first question to her when I accepted was, “What do I write?” I can best explain my concern …
Writing when life wants to kick you in the butt is not what any writer signs up for.  Writing should be “relaxing.” I’m sure we’ve all heard the same refrain: “…, but real life got in the way of my writing.”  I have never really understood the concept of  “real life.” I know that it …
