Whether
you’re serious about writing…or you just like to dabble from time to time…it’s
time to tighten those laces and put up you dukes -- WRiTE CLUB is back! This is the sixth year of the “little contest
that could” and I’m happy to announce that we are co...

WRiTE CLUB 2016 – A Call for Slush Pile Readers
WRiTE CLUB 2016 is just around the corner, which means I'm starting
to get my ducks in a row.  It also means
I need some help.  One of the most
challenging aspects of the contest is narrowing down all of the entries (171
last year) to just the top 30. That’...

Deja Vu Post - The Call

Connective Tissue
How about a
biology lesson today? Anyone heard
of Connective Tissue? Connective Tissue maintains the form of the body along
with its internal organs, providing cohesion and support. It is a scaffolding for
other cells to rest and where nerve tissue and musc...

Say Hello
I was doing a little bit of internet surfing early one morning this past weekend, taking a stroll down memory lane of old bookmarks I had stockpiled over the year, all of them related to my writing journey so far.  I came across one that elicited a bitter-s...

Resolute - 2016
I’m going to take a slightly different
approach to my end of the year wrap up this time. I’ve decided to include my
post from last year – with updates ( in red ) with
what actually happened. I’m doing this in an effort to hold myself accountable
to my goals...

The Deja Vu Blogfest - 2015
In 2011, 2012, and then again in 2014, I used a rather
unique Blogfest to help me readjust to blogging after the turmoil of WRiTE CLUB . This year I’ve just
finished up my fourth novel and I’m trying to do it again. I’m a hardy believer
that if something wo...

The Push
Crunch time! When I was writing
the first draft for my three previous books there came a point when I felt absolutely
compelled to finish. I’m talking about an overwhelming, OCD equivalent
compulsion to – as Larry the Cable Guy would say – “Git R’ Done!” It...

Two Worlds
I don’t know
what it’s like for the rest of you when writing on a new project, but for me it
can be trying. During the height of my involvement, when I’m so wrapped up and agonizing
over every single detail in an effort to spill my imagination onto the page...

Pivotal
I spend a
lot of time here talking about aspects of the writing/publishing process that I
feel is relevant (and interesting) to other writer’s. Sometimes I ask myself --
“Self, why is this relevant and/or interesting?” I mean, who am I to decide
that? What ...

Can a man of few words...write a successful novel?
Introduction
Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?

I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.
