Whether your kid is a newborn or near-adult, parenting is not for sissies. 
To my friends with young children, I would love to tell you that parenting gets easier when they get older. Except that'd be a lie. Over the past few weeks, I've learned that even though you will m...

Or, as Jason Robards said it so well in Parenthood: "There is no end zone. You never cross the goal line, spike the ball and do your touchdown dance. Never."

Disney finally decided to make a movie of "The Snow Queen." Unfortunately, all it has in common with the fairy tale is... there's snow in it. And a reindeer. :/

I'm re-releasing a previously self-published short story (~6k words) next year with a small press. I consistently get two comments in reviews for it. (1) I wish it was longer. (2) I love the fast pace of the story.

Usually I get both  these comments in the same review. I'm considering expanding it to a novella or short novel before relaunch. My question  is, how do I expand the story without adding "fluff" and bogging down the action?

Making anything longer without slowing the pace is a challenge, if not an actual contradiction. But how about humor? That squirrel might be useful.

If you've always wanted to try #NaNoWriMO  but think you've missed the boat, there are still 26 days left in November. Even if you started tomorrow, you could still finish by writing just 2k words/day. Not that much more than if you'd started on Day 1.
