What? Another damn Vampire novel? ...uh, yep. But this one is real.

This is the blog about blogging. It's in my contract that I must blog about blogging no less than once per calendar year. Coming off my annual blogcation, in which I do not blog for a week or two, it seems a worthy topic and comes at just the right time. Re...

http://stephenswartz.blogspot.com/2014/05/the-mother-of-all-writing-processes.html
