Setting up the Main Character

So, you have this idea of a story, and it is basic, just an idea. Now in order for this thing to work the inclusion of people, or aliens, or whatever, that are effected by this idea and see how they deal with the situation.

My year in preview.

I honestly did want to write a “Year in review” type of post, but with all the excuses I could give I didn’t. I did get shit done (for lack of a better term), and I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish. There were several short stories/flash fiction things I posted on the […]

Waiting and waiting and waiting

With NaNoWriMo approaching, I’m finding it difficult waiting for the green light (November 1) to get started on my project. I’ve tried to keep myself busy with the outline I’m working on, but I really want to sink my teeth into the pounding out content. I’m not one to spend this much time on an […]

Flash Fiction – A Random Act of Kindness

Last weekend a friend and I met up for our yearly get together. It’s a tradition, the two of us meeting somewhere where we sit, discuss, and have a few beers. Over the past few years we’ve issued challenges. Have a chapter, short story, novel, whatever written for the meet. Last year’s challenge turned into […]

Preparing for November

So NaNoWriMo approaches, and I have put my name into the hat in hopes of forcing myself to get into a rhythm. I’ve slacked off lately in regards to writing and I hate it. I need goal, a deadline, something. It’s probably a residual affect from those years as a journalist. I signed up for […]

The Price of Favors – Chapter 2

I’m continuing to post chapters, up to five at least, onto the blog. Hope you enjoy. Chapter 2 The Saint, one of many local bars, resides on Louisville Avenue a mile or so from Mickey’s Saloon, six blocks from the Ouachita River. The Irish Pub has been around for close to 20 years and developed […]

Woo Hoo! Another chapter in a fictional universe.

Completing something is a hell of a feeling. Especially when it’s a story. For the past several weeks I’ve been working on a short story I plan on it being part of a series where certain characters make appearances. A couple of characters mentioned or in “Frank Winston” are in this tale. It’s kind of […]

New Stuff for Writer’s

I have some new merchandise for any writers out there. Hope you enjoy. If you have any requests or ideas, please share.

So what’s going on?

There’s been a lot going on since the last time I posted. In addition to the flash fiction posts I’ve been busy working on a short story I hope to finish soon. Then it will be a round of proofing, editing, and so on before self-publishing this as well. A few of the characters either […]
