Tea Time

In my current work in progress, two of the characters are native Regelans who have been abandoned on a different planet with a lot less technological advancements than Regelence. Needless to say, they miss their tea. One of the first things they do is ask Bannon, whose ship crashed on the planet, if he has […]

Exercise and Writing

With all the talk of New Years resolutions, I got to thinking about exercising since that is such a common resolution people have. It is not mine, however; I already workout regularly. I’ve always exercised off and on, but since August of last year I’ve exercised consistently. In the past, I always had good intentions […]

Plagiarism

*This is an post from 2011 from my old blog, but the information is still good and I hope it may be some help to others, so I’ve included it in this blog. Plagiarism. It’s an ugly word and an ever uglier act. I know some of you are aware that I was plagiarized a […]

What is a Clip?

I did a post several years ago for my old Live Journal blog about magazines vs. clips and since I still see the misuse of these terms in books, I thought I’d revise the post in an effort to educate my fellow authors.¹ Honestly, this would probably be an easier post to do in video or […]
