The Real World Monitor!

The wait is nearly over! The Real World Monitor is almost ready for sale!

Writing Update

Hey Everyone! I suppose you’re wondering why I haven’t updated the blog lately. Well, I’ve been writing like a madman! Summer is when I get whole days to write, so I’ve been working on a number of pieces. Well, not only have I finished the second draft of a novel called Schism, but I’m approaching time Read More…

Asterisms

Asterisms may refer to a small group of stars that aren’t a constellation yet still have a name. That’s not what I’m writing about today. I’m writing about asterisms in a piece of writing. Those are the three asterisks in a row that denote the passing of time in a story, or sometimes minor breaks in Read More…

I’m doing a lot of editing these days. We’re approaching the final workshop for my novel The Real World Monitor, and I’m doing a huge rewrite of my second novel, Schism. I also have a number of short stories which I’m going over, so I’m spending a lot of time going over my writing, changing Read More…

Don’t Get Defensive

I know I talk about my writing group a lot. I love my writing group. They’re awesome. But we did have someone join our group for one meeting. A lot of our group didn’t like her writing, although I kind of liked the frantic nature of her work and the way she jumped from idea Read More…
