Why We Can't Stress Highlighting Your Acheivements Enough in Resume

Your resume's job is to spread the word about what you can do and how well you can do it. In many cases it's your only chance to get an interview for a job and therefore in order to give you a competitive edge, it should represent the best version of you and as such, it should be riddled with your achievements.…

Why Your One-Size-Fits-All Resume Isn't Getting You Noticed

When applying for a job vacancy, a resume should reflect the needs and wants of the position you are applying for. A one-size-fits-all resume is a general resume and can sometimes be vague. If you are doing your job hunt with such kind of resume, you are wasting your time and energy. It’s recommended that you don’t send a general resume in a specific job listing since employers are looking for someone who can take a specific role. For example, if you are applying for the position of a…

I Don't Get the Big Deal About Sports

I am American, born and raised in this country, and yet I am not a sports fan. Some of you will find this hard to believe and are already writing letters to the government, asking for my citizenship to be revoked.

And yet I feel about sports the way that Dorothy Parker felt about skiing: "Skiing is very difficult and none of my business." Big sports is none of my business.

So you can pretty much imagine how I felt when I learned that the football coach at my university was…

In Search of my Lost Motivation

New Year’s has come and gone and with it went my motivation. It didn’t help that I came down with some type of intestinal bug the night of January 2, robbing me of two days of productivity. The only benefit of such a bug is that it can help you shed some of those holiday pounds, but even that…

How You (Yes, You) Can Find Time to Write

Maybe you’ve got a day job. Maybe you’ve got kids. Yet you have aspirations to write that novel. Your problem is that you’re not sure when you can make the time.

It’s a common dilemma, and one I’ve spent the past few years studying. From 2013-2014, for a book I wrote called I Know How She Does It, I…

Where I Write: Planes, Trains & Poolside

A few years ago, we were visiting Key West and I got to see where Hemingway wrote. It's a cozy room, separate from the main house. A place of solitude and creativity. I wish I could say I wrote in an equally inspiring place, but instead, much of my writing is done on planes, trains, and poolside. If I waited to write until I was in more conducive surroundings, I would never write. If you have a New Year’s resolution to write more in 2017, that means writing whenever and wherever you…

One Scene, Three Places

The place in which a scene in a novel is set has a tremendous effect on how the story’s characters will feel and react. The place can also affect how your reader will understand and respond to the scene.


In order to understand how place affects a scene, let’s look at a simple dialogue between…

On Becoming a Writer

Writing fiction thrust itself upon me as an unwelcome, rather rude guest. My entire work career had involved writing: psychological reports, requests for proposals, advertising copy -- but fiction I dismissed as best left to others with wilder imaginations and wardrobes.

Then in 2004, I learned about an aunt and cousins I did not know existed, and whose story begged for an audience and someone to present it. Me. I began writing, inventing vast swaths of story line but attempting to be…

50 Keywords You Should Obviously Use In Veteran Resume

Military officers make a significant career change by transitioning into civilian workforce and hence will need to convey their skills through effective objective statements that can persuade an employer.
