There are questions about my great-grandparents on the patriarchal side that are somewhat of a mystery. I suppose I could always play on that and find an interesting plot for a story from their past.

All literary agents will tell you, you have to learn. Learn from other writers, learn from reading, learn from taking classes. They also say that they try to teach writers what works and what doesn’t work. They mention they will point you in the direction of where you should go, because they know what readers like.
Well, I have to say, not always. There have been many popular books in our societ... Read more of this blog post »

“It's the imperfections that make someone or something beautiful." LJBurson”
Linda Burson, Rage

“Keep in mind, fellow writers, that readers opinions are subjective. Not everyone is going to love what we write. It doesn't make it bad or "wrong". It just makes it not right for everyone. Don't get too discouraged by reviews. I had someone tell me one of my scenes was a cliche. So what! I like cliches once in a while. Besides, A different person read the exact same scene at the same time, and they told me it was their favorite part. Interesting, isn't it? ”
