Phil Latham Phil Latham's blog:
Who is your favorite writer? You know, the one whose words just seem to sing? More than that, it appears that he (or she) wrote them effortlessly, as if they poured directly from the brain, through the fingers and onto the page.

Mark              Phillips Mark Phillips's blog:
I don't plot novels. That is not to say that plotting a novel is a bad thing or that it's the wrong way to write a book. Everyone has their own process and plotting has never been part of mine.

The way that my process works is pretty simple. It usually starts with a little grain of an idea (someti... Read more of this blog post »

In 2014, I've read 140 books (so far!). Yeah, I know. I may have a problem. I promise I did other stuff too - I wrote two novels, graduated, got a new dog....anyway.
