Keep writing. Keep exploring the craft and honing your skills. The only way to improve is to write. Understand that much of what you write early on will never get read by anyone outside your friends and family. It's practice. You're improving.

Two, let writing be an artistic outlet. Don't force it. Follow your heart and let the words come from your soul. You're not out to impress anyone. Just write.(less)

One, I'm distracted with something else going on in my life. I have a full-time job, a wife, and five daughters so it's not hard for some life event to trump writing on the priority list. When that happens I either need to take some time off from writing or I need to work on something less demanding. Two, I'm burned out. I've been working too hard. I need a break. When that happens I usually take a break. I need a break. I need to walk away from my writing and allow my mind to rest and reset.(less)

“Dellosso’s cleverly plotted second Jed Patrick novel (after 2015’s Centralia) finds the Afghan war vet hiding with his wife, Karen, and their eight-year-old daughter, Lilly, in a cabin in the Idaho wilderness. Two months earlier, two CIA agents gave him a thumb drive containing “every damaging piece of information about the Centralia Project,” the exposure of which threatens to cause a “scandal that would be talked and read about for decades to come.” Then one day Jed returns to the cabin to find Karen in tears. She tells him that three armed men burst into the cabin asking for the thumb drive, but she didn’t know where it was. The men took Lilly, and vowed they would return for Karen. More shocks follow. Meanwhile, CIA technician Tiffany Stockton discovers a plot to control Jed’s mind in a sophisticated update of The Manchurian Candidate. Can she stop him from becomes an unwilling assassin? Dellosso expertly misdirects readers, but they should be prepared for only serviceable prose.”
