New Year’s Resolutions for Writers: The Only 4 You Need to Make

It’s that time of year again. Christmas is over and 2015 is right around the corner. We’re getting ready to ring in the new year and usher in all the change we hope to see. And for most of us, that means making resolutions. Sometimes they stick, sometimes they don’t. As writers, we probably spend far too long […]

The Writer’s Notebook – An Essential Tool for Creativity

Winter is coming! And so is NaNoWriMo. How prepared are you? If you are going to be participating in NaNo this year (and why wouldn’t you be? It’s a great way to get out some raw material), the best way to start preparing is to get yourself a spiffy new writer’s notebook. The writer’s notebook […]

The Great YA Debate: #YASaves Revival

Raise your hand if you remember the #YASaves hashtag frenzy that blazed a trail across the Internet back in the summer of 2011. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? (as an aside, can you believe it’s already 2014? I still find myself writing “2010” on things!) But I digress, if you don’t remember, that’s OK. Allow me to […]

6 Google Chrome Apps for Authors and Writers

As a writer, I need all the help I can get being more productive and limiting procrastination. My preferred browser of choice is Google Chrome. The apps and extensions for Google Chrome have probably inspired me, helped keep me organized, kept me focused, and saved my butt more than I’d care to admit (I say that […]

8 Tips for Self-Editing Your Novel

As a book editor, I’ve edited my fair share of novels, with clients that have ranged from self-published authors to international bestsellers. I’ve even worked as a contract editor for Amazon’s Publishing Imprints.

NaNoWriMo is Coming!

If you’re a writer, it stands to reason that you’ve heard of  NaNoWriMo—unless of course you’ve been living under a rock. In which case, that would make a great story, so maybe you don’t need NaNoWriMo after all. Either way, chances are, you’ve heard of it, are participating in it, or have writer friends who […]

Writer’s Block – Getting Unstuck

As a writer, there’s nothing worse than getting stuck, or dealing with writer’s block. Yes, rejection and the like is awful, but at least at that point on the writing timeline, you’ve accomplished what you set out to do. There probably isn’t a writer that hasn’t suffered the unpleasant ailment of writer’s block—whether it is […]

5 Gifts for Writers: Father’s Day Version

June means Father’s Day, and like Mother’s Day, it falls on the second Sunday of the month. While Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated non-religious holidays in the US, Father’s Day is still a pretty big deal. There are more than 70 million fathers in the world, and according to the US Census […]

10 Writing Lessons from The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz is probably one of my favorite movies of all time. I was always enraptured by the story of Dorothy traveling to a lush beautiful land, full of magic and wonder, only to want to go back home in the end. The message in The Wizard of Oz is timeless. We’re all […]

6 Unlikely Places to Write and Find Inspiration

  As a writer, you know how important setting is to your stories. But what about your own setting—the place(s) where you do most of your writing? Where you write can be just as important as what you are writing (poetry, psychological thriller, vampire unicorn dystopian novella?), how you’re writing (pen and paper, laptop, old […]
