I just really can never get enough of these two. I'm a big fan of the last-minute panic technique. If only I could create that for myself on a daily basis...
Last October I posted an In-Depth Interview on Stephen King, which deals more about his life, and what has influenced him as a writer. It's hard to realize how much his stories have an influence on our culture. Really, did you know just within the span of several months he has 5 projects releasing? Three … Continue reading In-Depth Look – Stephen King
Especially with that summer reading 😂 It's that time of the year to get lost in a good book.
A few months ago, I gave a reading at a local bookstore. A small but enthusiastic crowd attended, and I confessed to the audience filled with emerging writers that I had, in my 20s and early 30s, stopped writing for eight years, and that I had accepted I’d never write again.

My first introduction to his work was through his graphic novel, "The Sandman," which is a great read. The studios have been trying … Continue reading Rules for Writing Fiction – Neil Gaiman

I think she makes a good point in this quote. If there is a voice in you that can't be contained, … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Sylvia Plath
I don't know much about the author, Leigh Michaels. She's written quite a few romance novels. I haven't read any of her books, but this quote came straight from her mouth, and it has a good point. Inspiration may come on it's own, but it is certainly far more likely to come if you give … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Leigh Michaels

In a time when knight's are no more, an old man snaps and suddenly believes he is a knight in shining armor. The whole world transforms around him. Windmills are … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote)
Fanfiction, if you haven't heard the term before, is exactly what it sounds like. Fiction, which has been created by fans of a particular story. It has a wide breadth, and encompasses all genres in movies, television, comic books, musicals, and video games. I may post some good fanfics from time to time if I … Continue reading Fanfiction – Harry Potter
