Recuperation, Procrastination, Frustration, and Determination.

Reality kicks in ...
I participated in my very first Twitter chat, hurray!  For some people this is pretty commonplace, considering, that Twitter has been around for years.  But for me, it was a first, and, was fun. Robert E. Brewer of Writer's Market  has created the "2014 Get...

Being a Writer Ain't Easy
I have read a lot of articles on writing.   And I mean a LOT.   How do you create the perfect villain?  How do you write the perfect ending?  How do you describe scenery so the reader doesn't want to rip their eyebrows off and run around their house screami...
