8-4-20 WANT SHELTER SO BAD…

*scroll down for a YouTube video

Recurrent poetry theme
But each time I’m blown away
By my brain’s ability to convey
Its connection with the senses
This time I heard Dylan’s acoustic guitar
Playing Shelter from the Storm
Found myself
Back in the body of a sixteen-year-old
Feeling the hope of youth

BTIS--Chapter 6

In this chapter, I introduced two characters: Detective Forrest Billingham and Cade's sister Keiri-Leigh Cannon. Believe it or not, these characters had previously existed in an idea for a lighthouse mystery as mystery-solving partners.

Frequently Asked Question: Have you ever written a piece that became a form, or even a genre, you hadn’t planned on writing in? Or do you choose a form/genre in advance?

Hi, everyone. Here’s this month’s question from the Insecure Writer’s Support Group.


The short answer is that, for me, the story chooses its own shape and length. Now, sometimes I discover that I’ve gone down the wrong path. An idea that I thought would make a novel becomes a novella or a short story

Over the last couple of weeks I have had a few encounters with Republican neighbors who were decrying what they perceive as incivility in our neighborhood. People seem angry, they said, sounding puzzled. On FB it’s a rightwing theme to whine about how mean everyone is to conservatives.

Why You Should Organize Your Nightstand

You can ask anybody who has lived with me: I’m not an organized person naturally. If it weren’t for my much-more-organized husband, I would have piles of laundry and stacks of random crap covering most of the floor.


But there’s one space in our apartment that I try to keep fairly organized: my nig

How do you construct a character?

I often get asked how I construct a character.

I begin by basing my character on someone I know or have known.

When I say this at public presentations, some people quickly respond by letting me know they feel left out of that umbrella, “But I write fantasy, and my characters are badgers and dragons”.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
