Being a Better Writer: What Makes a Protagonist? · 10:09pm Mar 15th, 2017

All right. So, yesterday's incarnation of this post, to what is now great irony, started with a worried critique of Wordpress' freshly rolled out posting interface. To be specific, it critiqued the poor interface design, but also noted with a faint hint of worry that something so new was bound to have some surprises of a possibly unpleasant variety.

Being a Better Writer: Trait Dominance · 5:43pm Oct 22nd, 2018

This is going to be a short one today. Two reasons. One is that I’m still sick, and don’t feel great. The second is that I’ve also got a work shift today I have to be at in a little over an hour. It’s going to be an interesting day.

Being a Better Writer: Balancing a Returning Character · 10:49pm Nov 14th, 2016

Whoa! Late post today! Don't worry, it wasn't because I was slacking off. The opposite, actually. See, during that month-long burn to get Colony published and into eager reader's hands (many of whom are now enjoying it immensely, going by the high-quality reviews that have already rolled in), I skipped a lot of sleep. Quite a lot. We're talking 10-12 hours spent a day working on Colony regularly, plus everything else my life had. So I was, for almost a month, getting 5-6 hours of

Being a Better Writer: Flanderization · 11:18pm February 24th

Hello readers! First things first, apologies for the lateness of this post! I am still recovering a bit from that con-crud, it would seem, and slept far, far later than I expected to. Right through my alarm, right through everything.
