Come along as I create a series

In the past I have made posts about my efforts to write a book on a pair of princes whose uncle stole their birthright. It seems like something always brings the story to a standstill and, more often than not, I end up starting it all over from the beginning. And yet, it is a […]

Writing Journal: May 12-16

Writing Journal April 28-30th

I’ve been doing mostly plotting on stuff rather than actual writing work. Trying to decide what I am going to be doing while I listen to the class videos for the series writing course I am taking. I’ve been replaying the videos, listening to them a fed times while I relax […]
