Are you very excited about writing?  Not that anyone here would suggest that people are not, but I’d like to present the question for people who are just beginning the writing process.  I will not suggest to you to ever stop writing, but here are a few thoughts of mine about writing. If you want …
Wow what a year it has been! Yes, I finally published my first book, and looking back, it was a full year of work.  I went through several edits — and editors — until I found the right path to follow.  This process lasted from January 2011, until nearly the end of October 2011. Don’t let …
It is simple:  If you are living a life of writing, there is one final step you must take.  It is so simple and most writers tend not to think about it.  If they do, they have different reactions to that very thing. They fear it.  It worries them and then they don’t do it. …

I think this is something that we ask a lot, as writers.  We each have our own ‘pet’ sort of books that we love to read.  Most of the time I prefer non-fiction history, but I also enjoy fantasy and science fiction.  I love to read a well written book. I like to think that …
I don’t think anyone will argue that writing and publishing aren’t a challenge.  There are days when you wonder why you decided to become a writer and then there are days when the word flow and editing is a breeze.  These are the ups and downs experienced by many writers. I have to say that …
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 …
