    I definitely get the left brain/right brain thing. As a matter of fact, I figured it out when someone gave me a book Drawing With the Right Side of the Brain. I drew stick figures my entire life until I got that book. I found out that it wasn't that...

    I have to comment on your running. I saw/read/heard something yesterday that had a take on this. It may have been a TV show like "Castle," or it could have been some advice from a writer... I don't know and that alone drives me crazy. The gist of...

    Great post. Of course the one that strikes a chord most is "READ IT ALOUD." That's the best advice you can give. If it sounds wrong, it probably is wrong. Of course, "#10 Look for excessive detail of mundane actions," is also important. I used to...

    I must write more.  I went to JF's Kickstarter page and I'm already hooked on her book.  One of the things she did that was so wonderful is her book trailer.  She puts in small pieces of book... without completing thoughts and sentences and it only...

    Dear, Dear, Elaine... I don't get out much myself.  The old bear in her den, who occasionally wanders out to feed, snarl a little and then return to my den to write.  Until last week when I was networking the old fashion way with friends I see for...
