Survived

Survival of midterms, check. Survival of novel #2, check. Finishing a novel and having midterms in the same week. Legendary no. Crazy stupid, probably. That means one goal is off my check list. Hallelujah! It’s been a week of blunt beginnings. The life of…

Monday 2-26-18

Car stuck in a field, check. Crippling deadlines, check. No sanity left, ahem check. It’s Monday! I’m the crazy person that likes Monday. What’s on the agenda is novel editing. Yes another novel is coming! Aha I am preparing to send to my publisher…

Author Branding

Being an author is not easy work. A lot of people say to me, “Oh you’re an author, that’s cute.” Cute? Writing an 80,000 word book and shoving it out there for the world to ridicule is cute? *Inwardly screams in frustration Being an…

Building the Brand of You

The name of one of the panels I spoke on over the weekend seems fitting for discussion. Who am I? What is my brand? What thing do I identify myself with? How do you build an author brand? Do you even know what you…

Creative Writing Convention 

I’ve been MIA for a while. I took a sort of writer vacation by attending Imaginarium this past weekend. Imaginarium is the largest creative writing convention in the Midwest. There were over 150 authors in attendance.  I had wonderful time, met a lot of…

Discovery: Part 3

RIGHT HERE Once ago I thought I knew myself. But that was years ago. I’m me. Though I’m not myself. I see all this time passing by and I think I should be different. Think I need to conform. I clench my eyes shut…

Writer Support

I think the thing I enjoy most about writing other than the actual writing portion is writer support. It still amazes me to this moment how writers from every where, all across the world, will support others that practice their craft. I don’t know…
