I've decided that I'm going to start doing very short, to-the-point tips on writing, that I hope will help authors out. I'm not going into deep detail (I actually advise that you look this up, as there are many great articles out there. Or, going to workshops is usually very worthwhile), so pleas...

#supportingcharactersI spend an awful lot of time fleshing out my supporting characters when I'm writing. Going so far as to write little scenes for them, so I can understand their motives and define their characteristics better.As far as I'm concerned, no writing is bad writing. So, even if I sp...

The prompt/question this week is do I keep a journal or diary.


Duh!!! Of course I do. I’ve been a life-long diarist since I was given my first “big girl” diary at the age of 8.

It was a 3×5 sized, hardbound book, complete with it’s own lock and key, hundreds of sheet...

While driving home through the warm London night last Monday evening, I decided to tell my girlfriend about Stanley Cavell’s interpretation of Macbeth. The story does not reflect any better on me, if you know the essay in question. It centers on a description of the Macbeths as a portrait of...

I like to think about what words used to mean. Take “incredible.” It’s the opposite of “credible”, which is to say it originally meant “unbelievable.” Not always in a good way.


“You claim that you had no knowledge of a crime, carried out over the course of many weeks, under your ver...

Apparently Mars is currently covered in a dust storm.

This appears to happen every few years and would be a definite challenge for anyone trying to live on the Red Planet.

Self-esteem and how they see themselves is so important in children. Many times how they see themselves is totally different than how everyone else in the world sees them. It can be hard to know how to build self-esteem in our kids. No one wants a child who thinks too highly of themselves, but it...

The Trump Takeover of the Courts

Trump’s most lasting legacy might be his impact on the federal court system. It must be stopped.
