On Writing: The Pros Of Fantasy

I’ve always been one for variety. My reading library spans the realms of everything from fantasy to family dramas and children’s titles. There’s even some non-fiction in my arsenal; I’m a sucker for a good biography, especially when they’re about serial killers or mob bosses. Just sayin’. When it comes to my own writing, this […]

When Research Changes Your Life

Conventions are all the rave lately. For example, there’s the infamous Comic con, which hits all the major cities. But conventions or “cons” as they’re called, don’t stop with the comic book world.

Your Writer’s Toolbox – What’s That?

In the writing world there’s a lot of terminology that gets thrown around. Admittedly, I haven’t figured all these terms out. Sometimes I think that there must be a master list somewhere, or a decoder ring that would clear all these conundrums up in one easy swoop, but so far I haven’t found it. This […]
