I've written over 100K words (!) in my WIP, Gifts of the Elven, a sequel to soon-to-be-published The Path of the Dragonfly. I think I'll be finished with the first draft by the end of the month.

One thing that Dragonfly and Gifts have taught me is how to outline in a way that I can work with.

I know. Outline. That horrid word. That killer of creativity. OMG, how could I even think of doing that,... Read more of this blog post »

I'm a writer of fantasy fiction, so this was gold to me. It's written in an amusing manner, and is full of useful and interesting information.
