Writer's block is a manifestation of perfectionism, which is a creativity and productivity killer. I made this realization several years ago, and the moment I realized I would never get things perfect, I started to have a lot more fun, and I became way more prolific. Writing is a matter of incremental improvement, so don't be too hard on yourself right out of the gate. Keep throwing time and resources at whatever you're working on, and it will get better. And if you happen to hit a creative wall, don't be afraid to walk away from a while. That's not writer's block; that's your brain saying it needs a bit more time to process whatever problem you're tackling in the background while you work on other things. (less)

Nothing beats that first opportunity to hold a book I've written or a movie I've made. It's a miracle every time. (less)

How a Book Cover Comes Together

I have a new children's picture book coming out shortly (It's winter themed and will make a perfect Christmas gift!), so I thought it would be fun to show how the cover for it came together. Here's the post: https://www.kevinmillerxi.com/blog/ho...

This book feels a bit like a bait-and-switch. It's supposed to be a firsthand account of the Mt. Rainier Sasquatch Massacre. Instead, it's mostly about one woman's midlife crisis. It's a VERY slow burn that finally gets going about 75% of the way thr ...more
