Make Me Bad…

After watching way too many shows on Netfilx, I have begun to wonder what it is exactly that makes someone do ‘bad’ things.  When I was younger, it was simple.  You were a bad person and that meant you did bad things.  End of story.  Easy wrap up. As I grew older, I began to […]

A-Z Challenge: Z is for Zeroing In

By JccKeith Zeroing in, according to a dictionary post, means to aim directly at someone or something.  That is the idea, this post is about focusing on something.  In the middle of March I had my sights set on beginning the A-Z Challenge in April.  I had never participated or for that matter, heard of […]

A-Z Challenge: W is for Whimper

“This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.” Those are the last lines from T.S. Eliot’s poem “The Hollow Men.”  The poem is from 1925.  Many believe the title orginates from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar or from Joseph Conrad’s character Kurtz in Heart of Darkness referred to as a “hollow sham” and “hollow at […]

A-Z Challenge: R is for Research for Writing

Researching for your novel is a key factor in whether or not it succeeds.  Too many people write one dimensional characters or describe places so poorly it doesn’t allow the reader to visualize the location or the interactions.  To prevent ill-defined characters or weakly described places, time must be invested in researching, in developing both… […]

A-Z Challenge: P is for Problematic

Problematic is such a great word and I use it so much in my life.  Actually, that’s not true.  I never say the word problematic unless I’m writing.  Don’t get me wrong, lots of things are problematic in my life, I just never use the word.  I tend to ignore problematic things. Take for example […]

No Link On This One

I just wanted to post that I have immensely enjoyed reading all of the a-z challenge posts I’ve found.  There are countless others I haven’t yet visited and I am certain would love.  I am finding many new blogs and websites through this challenge that I otherwise would have never encountered most likely. For those […]

A-Z Challenge: K is for Killing in the Name of…

Killing in the name of literature – how many people have you killed recently?  Me, thousands, I have killed off thousands of people in just the last couple of days.   Why? Well to be honest, I killed them off in the name of a goddess of the moon.  The rest I killed off because they […]

A-Z Challenge: I is for Interview

Today will be my first ever interview with a musician.  I have my questions, I feel prepared and yet there is a nervousness to interviewing someone.  I wonder if any of you have interviewed other authors or have interviewed musicians?  Were you as nervous as I am? Was there a feeling of what if they […]
