Character Study vs. Story vs. Plot

There tends to be a murkiness in the literary world about the term “character study.” In my years of writing research, I’ve never found a consistent definition of the term. What I have found is that there’s a lot of writer confusion out there about character study vs. story vs. plot. Here’s my Read more of this blog post »

Sometimes words leap from the page and speak to our souls. This is that line for me. Sometimes we don't know what we deserve until bad habits of accepting less have already been formed.

Venturing Into the Sun and A New Tattoo

I've finally found a cure to my insomnia, now that the weather is warmer. The sun. There is something that settles inside me when I lay out in the backyard and soak in the beautiful weather.

In celebration of meeting my publishing goals, I rewarded myself with a new tattoo. It's a katana inspired by Read more of this blog post »

Sometimes I feel like Alice going that down rabbit hole when I do my book research.

One of the gems I found was the inspiration for this safe house that Reeves and Darcy escape to.

If you’re going to steal…

I just finished reading an old, long, classic novel I had not picked up in decades – desperately sad, brilliant, and haunting. A young woman is musing on the poisonous disillusionment in her marriage. A passage caught my eye, as something vaguely familiar: “It was not her fault—she had practised no

Domestication through friendliness

When we talk about animals being “tame,” it could simply mean that we have decent, neighborly relations, as opposed to fear-filled mutual hostility.
