ARTICLE: 4 Stages of Life

It has been the alpha and omega of writing ruts for me. Looking back, I posted my last article on February 1...of 2016! Starting 2016 off, I had just released Kalcyon, the second installment in The Phoenix Ashes Trilogy, and planned to complete the last book by the end of the year. Quite ambitious, even …

Wrapping up 2015. Hello 2016

ARTICLE POST: Constructive Criticism Revisions

The writing process can be a very daunting experience. Some writers will be blinded by the bright overbearing blank pages that are waiting to be filled with a string of seemingly common words woven into something profound and meaningful, while other writers wear goggles as they fill pages and pages of content, most of the …
