Though, we suspect there might have been extramarital shenanigans. Going down a research rabbit hole to figure out who they were, and maybe *dun dun duun* uncovering some dark shit, could make for the start of an interesting story.(less)

Camp NaNoWriMo, 2020

Camp-2020-Writer-Facebook-Cover1-768x284.jpg

















It’s been hard to create this year, though I’m sure that’s true for a lot of folks. As an act of potentially foolhardy motivation, I’ll be attempting Camp NaNoWriMo. I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo on and off since 2012, and funnily the only time I’ve hit the 50k goal was that first year. I’ve participated eleven times, including both November NaNoWriMos and Camp NaNoWriMos, with a

"I was proud to give a cover quote to this book, and I've been thinking about it ever since. It's one of those books that keeps you guessing as to what's actually going on, in the best possible way. And it's creepy and horrific and skin-crawling, but " Read more of this review »

“Writers are made--forged, really, in a kiln of their own madness and insecurities--over the course of many, many moons. The writer you are when you begin is not the same as the writer you become.”
Chuck Wendig, 250 Things You Should Know About Writing

Chuck Wendig
“Stories are like wine; they need time. So take the time. This isn’t a hot dog eating contest. You’re not being judged on how much you write but rather, how well you do it. Sure, there’s a balance — you have to be generative, have to be swimming forward lest you sink like a stone and find remora fish mating inside your rectum. But generation and creativity should not come at the cost of quality. Give your stories and your career the time and patience it needs.”
Chuck Wendig
