Write, Edit, Read Writer’s Market, and Edit Some More

I bet you didn’t expect to see me back so soon. I intended to take a break from writing, but life had other plans for me. A couple of days after I posted my last blog, I got offered a new writing opportunity with My Trending Stories. I’m all for building my writing resume and …

Finish Line is Near

I hope everyone is having a good year so far! It’s a new year and I have two manuscripts. As a Christmas present, my brother is going to pay for a copy editor to edit my manuscript when I’m finished editing it. Before I learned of the copy editor, I wasn’t too focused on one …

Past, Present and Future

I spent the last four hours updating my profile on each …

The Voices In My Head

Writing a book is hard and, at times, very frustrating. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love writing, but I wonder if I write more because I love to or if because I feel like I need to… Sometimes I feel like I have an obsessive-compulsive disorder when it comes to writing. I’m currently …

Happy Friday!

After nearly five years, my book is done! I finally finished writing Lucky Star. It’s about 75,000 words and 205 pages. It should be a little longer after I edit it. I’m going to take a few days off and begin editing next week. This is the best birthday present I could ever give myself …
