You have one chance and one chance alone to impress a person with your writing and, what is more important, to earn money on your published book. For most writers this sounds like a challenge — in a good way.  Just write something (or something more) and publish it.  If you want to, you can …
            It’s true we all get stuck in ruts, not being able to navigate our way out successfully no matter how hard we try. I think we can all agree with Rebecca that the best way to emerge as a new and refreshed writer is to challenge yourself to be better. But how do we …
Admit it: you’ve hit a writing rut.  A very wide, very deep rut.  One that right about now seems to be far too deep to find a way out of it.  Everything seems to blah, and so… maybe if you try new something- but not really, you don’t have the spark the feeling of passion …
Taking a look back on our writing journey this past year                 As we approach a new year and a chance for great resolutions, I thought it would be a good idea to look back on some of the key things we have focused on; from marketing, to self-publishing, and even fan fiction. There’s no …

Conquering Your Emotions and Triumphing Over Negativity It has been said many times that artists feel things differently. As writers, we are artists of the written word and the worlds that live beyond the page. That imagination and depth of insight takes a lot more out of us than we (and others around us) sometimes …
The question is simple; the answer is not. I know of too many writers who have made excuses about their writing for many years.  I have heard some say that they can not afford to write because they have a full time job.  Some say that they have other things that they have to do …
              If you’re a writer who is thinking of publishing for the first time, that first book is the most important piece of work you will do in your career. You’re meeting your audience for the first time, and first impressions mean everything. It isn’t too often in life that people give us a second chance, and …
