A TO Z CHALLENGE – 2013 – LETTER “A”
04/01/2013 11:50:26 AM
Amusement for me is lying in bed in the early morning, listening to the TV in the next room, imagining what's on the ol' boob tube. Today, it sounds like some type of el-cheapo Advertisement for some horrible el-cheapo van, made by Sanyo, called the “Meat Wagon.” The mus..
Discovering Why Writers Write.
03/24/2013 12:54:39 PM
I had mothered nine children and helped run a hobby farm for 30 years without actually sitting down and producing anything besides editing high school or university essays for my kids. No that is not a typo; it had been 30 years not months since I had the time to actually sit with ..

Ovation: The Clown That Lost His Funny.
03/18/2013 11:08:29 AM
I’m always impressed by parents who encourage their children to reach for goals that some might feel are out of their reach. Of course, I believe that children should be allowed to be children, but I also think that many of them appreciate being treated like mature young adults. As..
Mario Vargas Llosa by Alejandro Cabeza

Without serious fiction we will be less aware of the importance of freedom to make life livable and it will turn into hell when it is violated by a tyrant, an ideology or a religion.
Those who doubt that literature, in addition, sinking us into the dream of beauty and happiness, guard us agains..
Writing A Series
03/12/2013 10:51:33 AM
I started writing when I was twelve years old and the series that I created then is the four-book series that I am finishing now. No one can ever tell me that writing a series is useless or that trying to get one published as an unpublished writer is impossible because I will not listen. Writing is ..
Writing About: Childbirth
03/05/2013 12:08:39 PM
In Chapter Four of my book, I describe the birth of the youngest character in my series. I had been waiting to write the birth of this baby for a long time and it was exciting! The birth wasn’t an easy one nor was it normal, which is what makes it so epic, in my humble opinion.
If you e..
Breaking Writer’s Block
03/04/2013 14:02:48 PM
I woke up this morning momentarily gripped by a fear and uncertainty that has plagued me as of recent. Would today be like yesterday and the day before and the day before? Would I spend the next fifteen hours walking around my office in a daze trying to rip free of this chain of boredom? Would today..
Sell more books!
02/28/2013 13:38:49 PM
It’s the end of the month, which means my book sales stats will again be reset to zero. As I’ve mentioned many times before, it’s a little depressing to start each new month from scratch. Sometimes I think it would be nicer if they just kept the numbers going.
That said, I s..
Chrys' Writing Rules: Bad Things Must Happen
02/26/2013 12:11:59 PM
The first rule that I greatly believe in when I am writing is that you must let bad things happen to your characters, especially the protagonist.
Did you just start hyperventilating? Do you think I’m a cruel writer?
Take a slow, deep breath. I know how much you love your characters. They are a..
