    And I'm starting to get a little discouraged.

    I like to think my characters are believable and likable, but I'm starting to think none of that matters anymore. The best sellers you hear the most about now all have a whiney, spineless wimp for a lead with an abusive, psychotic a$$hole for a love interest. Then there's the...

    Ruby and Bubba A long time ago,

    well, not that long, I wrote a series about Ruby and Bubba and their in bred misadventures. I've just started a new series of the same ilk on Fetlife.

    Do not make complaint

    after every heartbreak you went through. Do not complain for mortality of life not journey as you delight. Do not complain about a human soul for not being as he or she perceived and as you have desired beyond imaginative, or for having flaws because you my dear, do too have...

    My Writer's Manifesto

    Whether its exploring experiences sexual or platonic, writing must be detail oriented and character driven. The secret to truly inspirational writing is immersion. The reader must be transported wholly into the work. Smell the odors, consume the tastes, feel the textures, hear...

    You know what makes me nuts?

    I'm gonna tell you. It's when I've been stuck on a scene for months. MONTHS. Then something or someone throws out a little spark that ignites an idea in my mind and all of a sudden I realize I'm going in the wrong direction in that scene. All I had to do all along was...

    My writing had been stalled

    This story starts off like most.

    .. It's a Cinderella story of sorts. A young boy who always saw beauty, surrounded by evil in a world full of magic. This story isn't pg though and there was nobody there to save him. No carts made out of pumpkins, the only thing carved was created on his wrist. There were only...
