What Kim Pham's Death Tells Us We're Doing Wrong

Since the brutal beating and subsequent death of Kim Pham in Santa Ana on January 18, everyone on my Facebook and Twitter feed has been posting links about the crime.

Mining the Mind

A few years ago I told my brother that I was writing a novel.

He looked at me strange and said, ” Don’t you need an imagination to become a writer.”

I was dumbstruck that he thought I wasn’t imaginative enough to write. Yet, I soon found out that he wasn’t the only one that thought that way. I…

Why Every Writer Needs To Go Mobile

We live in a world that is constantly moving.

 

Now more than ever before, people are on the go, moving from here to there, and there isn't time to stop and smell the proverbial roses.

Solving Technical Dilemmas

I completely understand how hard the tech side of writing, publishing, and blogging can be. Unfortunately, it's a necessary evil in today's market.

As we spend more of our lives in front of computer screens and having an online presence has become inevitable, exercising a measure of control on that presence has become very important.
