No Accidents!

I was going to post this over in my "Quotes" blog area but decided that this might be a better place for it. I get asked all the time, 'how you can write so much?' This meme sums it up nicely: Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm working on two or three books right now, but the one I worked in today was my story, "Murder, A Bit At A Time." I'm making slow progress in this story merely because it is two stories that are going to lead up to the story converging into one. This involves me constantly wandering back to what I...

Whether you're successful or not, you'll never feel the joys of accomplishment unless you love yourself. Success can be very difficult to deal with. You have to stay in the center. If you let your success define you, then you're really just setting yourself up for failure. Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Read This Post - I Beg You

A couple days back, someone asked me in a comment, "Is there anything you can't do?" Yeah, lots of stuff, but I don't talk much about those things. I'll use the occasion of an off day and the nature of the story I am posting over in another section to explain the how and why I stayed so busy, it... Sign in to see full entry.

I Agree

By reading a lot of novels in a variety of genres, and asking questions, it's possible to learn how things are done - the mechanics of writing, so to speak - and which genres and authors excel in various areas. -Nicholas Sparks Sign in to see full entry.

The 'Game' Just Got Better

I keep coming back to "The Game of Twitter" for a reason. It seems to be working. I've broken into the 500+ followers area by selecting quality people to follow which then leads to good followers. It's not as easy as it sounds. Unless you just willy nilly start following people and then follow every... Sign in to see full entry.

Does This Cheer-Leader Outfit Make Me Look Fat?

I get a lot of people that tell me they 'just don't have time to write like you do!' I can appreciate the thought, but having all day and all night to write is only good when you have the self disciple to do it. I make myself write for at least three hours a day and much longer than that when the... Sign in to see full entry.

Reading Makes You Better

In my daily search for good quotes, I found this one by Roadld Dahl, probably best know for his children's book, "James And The Giant Peach." He wrote, "If you are going to get anywhere in life, you have to read a lot of books." I agree 100%. To write, you must first read. Read newspapers, read all... Sign in to see full entry.

Suicide Is NOT Painless

I know that I addressed this over on my "Mumbles" blog, but this pertains to writing, so here it is... again. My partner and I have started a new venture that we have named, EbookIntros ( @EbookIntros on Twitter) and it seems to be gathering a following and has lead to an increase in sales of the...
