I'm Jason Denzel, and my debut fantasy novel, Mystic, was released in 2015. I'm currently developing sequels and other writing projects.

In addition to writing, I'm also an award-winning filmmaker, and the founder of Dragonmount.com, the leading online community for Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson's Wheel of Time saga.

When I'm not writing or pursuing other creative ventures, I study Choy-Li-Fut Kung-Fu. I live in Northern California with my two young boys, and I own a lot of swords.

For updates on Mystic, its forthcoming sequels, and other projects, please follow me on twitter (@jasondenzel), or check out my website at JasonDenzel.com. Thanks for reading!

Learn about passive voice and how to avoid it. Listen to the outstanding Writing Excuses podcast. Join a local writing group. While drafting your story for the first time, worry less about your "voice" and make sure you tell your story. Be yourself, rather than a second rate version of your favorite author. (less)

This helps kick my creativity into gear. Also, I keep a note-taking app on my phone so that when I'm running around town, or driving the car, I can immediately write or dictate my ideas for later review. Finally, the best way to deal with writer's block is to avoid it. When I'm finishing my writing for the day, I'll often leave notes for myself for what happens immediately next. That way, when I log in the next day, my notes will help me know what the write next.

Don't get caught in the writer's block trap. Sit down, put your hands on the keyboard, and power through. Don't get discouraged if nothing comes. Try again the next day. (less)

Outstanding conclusion to the series. While maybe not the best book in the series, it's still amazing.
