Good afternoon fellow writers. I have a question for you today. Are you a plotter or are you a pantser? Every writer is different.

My so-called "outline" consists of … Continue reading Misconceptions about Pantsers
I decided to kill two birds with one stone with this post. You may have noticed that the podcast didn't happen. As they say "everything that can go wrong will go wrong."

And this is why I don't tell many people I'm a creative writer. I had a teacher back in my freshman year of high school, and during an assignment, I mentioned that I wanted to be an author. I don't tell most people this because I know most of them won't take me seriously. I … Continue reading The time I almost gave up on Writing
