Have you ever heard a writer after the first draft say, “Oh, I’ll just self-publish this book.”  It’s not a good idea to publish one’s first draft, and I think that is where many writers seem to make a mistake.  I think it must be the freeing feeling of holidays or something in the air, …
This is a simple but important post.  What means the most to you after looking at these pictures and thinking about your writing?
For all that people talk about the challenges of writing or editing or designing a book, I found that in the end, publishing my book was a joy. I loved the process (at least most of the process.) Not only that, but I learned that a writer needs to think long term to have success. …

I wonder what is the biggest mistake in writing you can make?  I think that this is a question about fear, for me, as well.  I don’t like making mistakes… but then the mistakes happen and I have to fix them.  It is not easy going back and fixing them, and I know that we …
I’d like to discuss an important topic, and that is writing a historical manuscript.  It is a bit harder to do than regular non-fiction or fiction.  It has more to do with researching than a typical fiction book and has to follow the same historical backgrounds as a non-fiction. What scares people about writing history- …
