    Quality + Quantity = Success? (Maybe……)

    Please bear with this posting – it’s a bit of a long one :D Ok so, as authors we all want success, who doesn’t. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that’s a pretty safe assumption for me to make – we wouldn’t bother trying to get our work published otherwise. I have been reading up on the...

    Getting into "The Flow" while Writing.

    What The Flow Is We've all experienced it at some point in our lives, and not necessarily always while writing. I'd like to try and induce it while I write in hopes I can write better and faster. I have been trying ever so hard to bring it about, but it seems like I can only write a paragraph...

    Quarantine Writing?

    What's everybody working on in quarantine? For me, it's business as usual. I'm a self-employed writing mentor/self-published author (it's not as cool or successful as it sounds) so I've been chilling at home for months already lol. I'm working on the third entry in my dystopian scifi about a...

    Anyone Else a Self-Appointed, Full Time Writer?

    When I was really honest with myself, writing was always what I waned to do. Not as a hobby or side-gig. I wanted it all the time, and I had the passion to do it. So... I quit my day job to see if having time would really remedy the roadblocks to breaking out. The result... well... I'm much...

    The Writing Playlist Thread

    I figured the forum could use an all-in-one playlists-for-writing thread. I've seen a lot of separate threads revolving around music through the years here, and really wanted one good spot people could go to to find something that might suit their WIP. It's been my experience that a good...

    A Better Way to Write

    The things I write do not sound good, myself not doing what I should, to set down roughly all my thoughts and render then their roughness naught. Intending lofty, cadenced words to be in all my writing heard, but thoughts of mine not fully framed, the words I write I cannot tame. And thus do...
