Every Story Has A Reader| Writing Fiction

Last week, I worked diligently on my current “work in progress”. I was happy, I hit word counts and managed to clean up the messes on the way. Over the weekend something happened, that something that always happens. I feel hopeless, incompetent and I want to discard this entire story. Not even midway in each… Continue reading Every Story Has A Reader| Writing Fiction

I read the book a long time ago so I've definitely forgotten all of the details. I… Continue reading Fifty Shades Darker Movie Review

One-sided Friendships

According to statistics I don't have what you would call a real friend. Most of the friendships that I have had in the past appear to be more acquainted in nature. I've never had that ride or die, bosom buddy kind of friendship. Nobody's ever really had my back enough that I can put full faith… Continue reading One-sided Friendships

Where Do You Get Your Writing Ideas?

Where do you get your ideas? Not very often I might be engaged in a conversation with another human, and I might reveal the fact that I write stories. Mostly it won't be an interesting topic for them and they'll likely move on but sometimes I get asked, "What do you write about?" My tongue gets… Continue reading Where Do You Get Your Writing Ideas?
