March Writing Update

So I normally don’t toot my own horn, but I’m quite proud of myself. I hit every single one of my writing goals that I set last month. How about them apples! The biggest highlight of the month was participating in Madness! Poetry. What an absolute blast. I ended up losing in the 2nd round to... Continue Reading →

February Update

This way I'm not writing a limerick that his illustrations have to conform to, and he's not illustrating something that... Continue Reading →

Wake up at 4:30AM to start writing (when I normally wake up at 8AM)? Sure! Don't go to bed until I've... Continue Reading →

I only went to one panel on Saturday and it was on the Pros and Cons of Self-publishing. My thoughts and views on self-publishing have come a... Continue Reading →

I will be doing a recap of yesterday's workshops in th next few days as well as an... Continue Reading →
