WRiTE CLUB 2016 - SemiFinal Bout 2
If you read and voted on Mondays bout before 11:15 AM central time, BonsaiBabes piece was missing the last line and some formatting, so you might want to circle back around and make sure you still have the same opinion. We are down to just four and we've co...

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.
