Pantsing It

I have three of the five stories plotted out in my head now, and somewhere along the line, the other two will hit me about three in the morning, the time from whence all good ideas spring. Yesterday was a nightmare and I never want to go through that again. The up side of that experience was that... Sign in to see full entry.

I've been doing something quite unconventional for my normal style. Due to my writing sports reports and such on a short deadline, I have always 'edited' myself on the fly, stopping to correct misspelling and obvious grammatical errors when they happen. On this project, I've made myself a list of... Sign in to see full entry.

For the # RRBC short story writing contest, I'm working on a series of five 'horror stories.' Nothing blood-curdling or such, just some spooky stuff. I have two solid ideas so far, and a third running around my brain. If anyone has a 25 word (uhhh... give or take) story concept, I'd give them story... Sign in to see full entry.

Who's That Voice?

I haven't wrote about this lately, but as I work to get "I Remember Judy" made into an audiobook, I want to push a couple narrator friends of mine.

Self Publishing Is NOT A Sin

When my first couple books came out, every single interview I did, the person that did the interview insisted on using the phrase, 'self published,' as if it was a social disease. While I now use Create Space (and NOT Kindle's version of it!), the publisher of my first two books was very strict... Sign in to see full entry.

Writing Contest

It's Easter Sunday and I should be still, but I was just ' invited' to a writing contest by the club I joined. While you have to be a member to submit, the rules below also stress the importance of being 'relavant' as a writer. I'm a writing fool, or just a fool, depending on who you ask, but I...

I've tentatively decided that if I hang here, my next story will be a redux of my book on relaxation. I was working on it when my wife died and I put it away. All things considered, I need to relax again. It had over 32,000 words in it when I put it away, but I went after it with a trimming knife... Sign in to see full entry.
