I recently was asked on Twitter how I was able to dedicate so much time to writing. On that particular day, I’d written over 7 hours (and still had another hour or so to go). Of course, I am a full-time writing, so I have that luxury. That wasn’t always […]

Me And My Muse: On Routine


Let’s talk about plot. I know, I know…I really need to find a new topic to beat into the ground, right? But seriously…this is a topic that needs to be discussed at length, all the time. Why? Because without the ability to come up with a good plot, a writer […]
