As a co-host of the WROTE Podcast, SA Collins hails from the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives with his (legal) husband, their daughter and, wonder of all wonders because he only just broke 50, a whirlwind of a granddaughter. Their home is filled with laughter and love. A classically trained singer, and a theater actor for many years (under another name), Mr. Collins is all about the story telling and the spell a good yarn can weave for an audience. This is Mr. Collins foray into writing but, as with all his creative endeavors, he leaps right in and figures it out as he goes along. It's been a winning combination thus far so why break a working formula?

For me, I have to know the most intimate detail of every character before they ever appear on the digital page. It's part of my years in professional theater (under a different name). I have to know character sub-text to nearly the nth degree. It's just how it works for me. So the creation process for me is rather daunting. But, having said that, Angels of Mercy sprung up, very nearly formed as it is today, from the span of one highway exit to the next - a total of about 5 minutes. I started writing it as soon as I got back in the house. So the muse can strike whenever and wherever it can. You have to be ready to pick up the mantle when it does. (less)

The creative process is iterative for me, in that I am always processing scenes and dialog and plot constantly in my head. I may not put anything down on paper for a couple of days but when I do it is well between 10K to 20K words in a single sitting. My works grow by leaps and bounds whenever I do sit down to write. With close to 10 proposed works (outlined) already laid out for me, I am not sure I will experience writers block for sometime yet. I guess I'll save this one and come back to it when/if I do.(less)

Life Lessons – The Long-Term Relationship Edition

File Under: LIFE LESSONS – The long term relationship edition


(Totally cool if you want to TL;DR this – I just need to blow some steam.)


“I do.”


Two words that imply an agreement, a desire, a willingness to do what is required. Said at any sort of binding ceremony (wedding, handfasting, etc – depending on your traditions), those two words take on such a deeper meaning. At times, tho...
