    My Three Top Tips! (no, I've Not Published A Book Yet But Who Says I Don't Know Some Good Tips?)

    1. If you have an idea, ALWAYS WRITE IT DOWN. Even if you have an excellent memory, you MUST write it down because something else that happens between you having the idea and you writing the idea, it may distract you. 2. Write your story on paper, or in a notebook. Typing it is...

    Have a few ideas, been messing with them

    for years. Not got anything published yet not even a short story online. My creativity comes in fits and starts mostly from dreams. I've got some notes on paper and I'm working on typing them up.

    Sometimes in my life I think publishing a book

    would be really cool. It's like me leaving my imprint in the world. A book wrote by me staying in this world for whoever to read even after I die. It's just kinda cool to me.

    As I recall, the night started off with a

    candle-lit dinner, rose petals and a violinist in the background. We were at a fancy diner, in the private reservation area of the garden. The moon set the perfect lightning on his chiseled face. He looked like a movie star, and let's say his name was Zander, just so we don't...

    resolution this year to try to get one of my books published. But I'm so scared that people won't like my book or if it's not well written. I guess I just have to be confident and send it out there because I'm tired of having my books not read by anyone.
