In Need of Serious Advice · 10:41pm Oct 26th, 2016

So, there's this friend I have from last year in college that I share the same major with. This year, he invited me to Bible study and I agreed, thinking it was going to be a group of other people. On the day of the Bible study, he texted me, asking my to come to the Library, and I agreed. He directed me to the back room upstairs, and I discovered it was just him.

Ready... Aim... · 11:59pm Jan 24th, 2015

As a writer, there are numerous factors you have to consider in your story. Are you keeping the reader engaged with your balance of showing and telling? Does the plot make sense, or at the very least, will it make sense in the end? Have you obeyed all the proper rules of grammar, like not using none of those double negatives?

Wait...

Screw it, moving on. You see my point.

A Weak Sauce Phrase Everyone Should Avoid · 5:22pm Oct 22nd, 2017

He looked around.

I want to help others improve their writing as much as I want to get better myself. So today I'm going to give all you new writers out there a word of advice. To improve your own work, you need to be reading. Get out there and read anything and everything. And while you're at it, be on the look out for phrases that irritate you. Then make a mental note of them and avoid them in your own work.

Hotshotting and a Theory on Creativity · 2:19am Nov 26th, 2014

Don’t mind me, just climbing on my soapbox again...

There we are.

Hotshotting, if you’re unfamiliar with the term, comes from pro wrestling. I’ll admit that’s a strange place to start a blog on writing, but given the staged (“fake”) nature of the business, pro wrestling has always had an element of theater and entertainment to it. The basic premise of “Two men don’t like each other, and people pay to watch them fight,” has sold out arenas across the world for decades.

Something to think about. · 9:43am January 31st

So, I'm rapidly approaching chapter 50 of my story. I've never really gotten this far, and I can assure you I'm doing something worthy of the prestigious number. But it's also getting me thinking about something else regarding the story as a whole. If you didn't already know, I hold this humble tale of mine quite close to my heart. I've said before that I based Boltsinger off of aspects of my own personality, with other notable characters based on people with the same relationship towards me

On Writing Advice—a blog by Nyronus · 1:29pm Jun 13th, 2017

Nyronus wrote a blog about writing and writing advice! As we all know, we get writing advice that while coming with good intentions does't really work for the story or work in progress. Sometimes authors are trying to do a specific thing and taking advice is always iffy one way or another, especially if whoever is giving it to you is unwilling to at least hear what you're trying to do.
