Software for Writing

One question that I also constantly get asked is what is the best software for writing. There are so many out there that the decision might be a difficult one, but have no fear. There are many alternatives that you can get to for writing. One of the amazing programs I had run into has […]

Expanding Word Count

Now, many people ask this question, wondering how some people can write 90,000 words in a book and such and, well, here is my advice to you. Show – Don’t Tell: When you’re writing, make sure that you’re showing everything to your readers and not just telling them. Saying “Amelia was angry” isn’t exactly showing your […]

The Beginning

When you first decide that you’re going to write, the excitement kicks in – at least, that’s what I felt. I was excited to get the first book out there, wondering what in the world I got myself into later on with the editing and the stress of cover design and so much more! But […]
