The Good Days and The Bad Days

The Good Days and The Bad Days

The good days are when I: Can spin a phrase without even trying. Put together dialogue seamlessly. Make only minor mistakes. Plow through a chapter in a sitting. Feel my blood spark with inspiration. Start planning out the future, smiling as I do. Flow through the story and words like I am swimming. Can focus for hours on end. Know exactly where I am going. Create a structure and order that is instantly pleasing. Find the word and phrases to...

One Year Anniversary of How to Stop Wildfire!

One Year Anniversary of How to Stop Wildfire!

Well, it's been a crazy ride. It has been one full year since How to Stop Wildfire was originally published. This is the one year anniversary of How to Stop Wildfire. One whole year. Wow. It doesn't feel that long at all. So much has happened and the time blew by pretty quickly. What exactly happened? Well, I'm going to list off what I can remember. I think it is good to do retrospectives sometimes to see how far we've...

Writing and Stories

Writing and Stories

How did you discover you were a writer? Discover? Do you mean discover like how Columbus ‘discovered’ the new world? Because he really did not. The Americas were always there. There were people that lived in the world that he ‘found;’ they certainly knew it existed. It had always been there for them as long as they had been. No discovery needed. In that same way of knowing, I knew that I was a writer and storyteller. It was a...

Welcome to 2016 and Happy New Years!

Welcome to 2016 and Happy New Years!

Welcome to 2016! 2015 has been great. I hope 2016 fares just as good. I wrote a retrospective piece on Medium about my 2015 and my plans for 2016. I encourage others to do the same. I'm getting excited for the new year. Books to be written and edited. Very optimistic. Anyway. Onward to 2016 and beyond!

Night of the Living Book Blast + Mini-Interview

Night of the Living Book Blast + Mini-Interview

So as part of Support Indie Author's Night of the Living Book Blast event, I was able to do a mini-interview, so here it is! What is your name?

Interview with Andrea Washington

Interview with Andrea Washington

Andrea Washington, a fellow author and avid blogger, reached out for authors to interview, and I decided to indulge and be interviewed. It was actually really fun, so much more exciting than doing Smashword's self-interview. Her questions were nice and allowed me to speak about the series and try to explain what I am doing with it. It was a great experience. She also does 'Book of the Week' (which How to Stop Wildfire is at the time of this...

Joined The Coffeelicious Medium Publication

Joined The Coffeelicious Medium Publication

If you don't already know, Medium is a writing platform for publications, bloggers, and writers in general. It really is quite fantastic. The interface is wonderful, and it makes writing effortless. I have been a part of Medium for what feels like over half-a-year, and watched it grow and mature into the community it is now. I'm a huge supporter of what it is trying to accomplish. People have called it the democratization of the op-ed article and other things,...

Three Influential Book Series

Three Influential Book Series

Everything a person has read influences and inspires what they write. Writing really is a community affair in that respect. Fantasy has been heavily influenced by Tolkein and what he laid forward, and so on. People take in what they read and it becomes accepted into their 'internal canon.' So: what are some book series that heavily influenced me or inspired me? What is my 'canon?' Although I don't passionately read fantasy or science fiction, the answer is going to...
