"It has often been said
there's so much to be read,
you never can cram
all those words in your head.

So the writer who breeds
more words than he needs
is making a chore
for the reader who reads.

That's why my belief is
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader's relief is."

     -- Dr. Seuss

Managed to write new blog posts 2 weeks in a row! I am on a roll. For this week's blog post, I pose the question, "If you're a writer and you're not on Scribophile, what are you waiting for?"

I'm a huge fan of the critiquing site, and in this week's blog post I share why.

After far too long away (the result of moving/changing jobs), I've finally found the time and motivation to return to my blogging! My latest blog post -- in which I discuss my view of the various types of writer resource blogs out there, is now live on ryancrown.com. Check it out!

Trying to get back into a writing frame of mind after a couple of off weeks, so for this week's blog post I pulled out a short story I'd written a while back, gave it a good once over, and published it to the blog for this week's post. It's a silly little thing about a bored dragon, titled "Teasing the Humans". You can find it at http://ryancrown.com. Enjoy!

Wow, been a very non-writing week this week. Winter is always tough for me creatively (between the cold weather and less daylight, it tends to mess with my creative motivation), but this week was especially bad. But even if no other writing got done, I did manage to get my blog updated. And in the spirit of the non-writing week that I had, this week's blog post isn't about writing, it's about music. It's up now at http://ryancrown.com.

Continuing my discussion of characters, this week I focus on naming my characters, and the processes and resources I use to find those names. It's all on http://ryancrown.com!

This week's blog post is up at http://ryancrown.com. Up this week -- the progression of my main character, from his initial conception (as a Dungeons & Dragons character) up through his current incarnation within my Work in Progress. This post is the first in a series of posts that will focus on my current story.
