Paul Kropp: must you go so early?

I learned late last night that author Paul Kropp died. I’m stunned. He was four years younger than I am, still in his 60s. Too young! He was always so vibrant, so full of wit and heart and life that it’s impossible to imagine that he is no more. He was a…

One would think that after over 30 years writing and 5 novels published, I would be more accustomed to overcoming resistance to writing.  Not.  Once past the first draft and into revision, I will do virtually anything to avoid actually writing a new…

Coffee addiction and writing output, writers who are also artists, the messy revisions of the greats and how to make a quill pen ... a few of the links I've found of interest this week.

How does one overcome resistance to writing? 
The first stage of the writing process is resistance, but how is that resistance overcome? Setting small goals is the key.

Introduction
I'm the author of four novels

The first three, The Josephine B. Trilogy, are internationally best-selling novels about Josephine Bonaparte, now published in 17 countries (last time I checked). Over a million copies sold, the Trilogy goes through entire families like a flu. 

My most recent novel, Mistress of the Sun, was deemed “dangerously seductive"—a review quote I love. It too made bestseller lists and is presently published in 9 countries. 

Fascinated by the junction of historical fact and fiction, I am writing another novel set in 17th century France, this one about the cut-throat theatre wars of the period—Corneille! Racine! Molière! (Yes: I'm overwhelmed with research.) Naturally this novel also involves yet another of the Sun King's lovers as well as a witch.

Something of a Net junkie, I blog, tweet, tumblr and now, Google Plus. 

For more on all of the above, see my website.
