Guest Blogger: Vicki Batman – It’s all about Me! No, it’s about me!

It’s all about Me! No, it’s about me! by Vicki Batman In a book, secondary characters support the main characters, sometimes, as a best friend, a sidekick, a grandparent, or even as a bad dude. These characters can be fun to write, but when they take over a book–that’s a runaway train. Writers have to tame …

Defining Perfection by Debra H. Goldstein

Thank goodness my local cleaner offers one day service!  Since the May release of Should Have Played Poker, I’ve been traveling so much I often have to lie in bed for a moment to remember which direction the bathroom is in.  So far, I’ve been successful in having clean clothing and proper orientation.

How to Write a Novel by Bill Crider I’m sure you’re read Somerset Maugham’s wise words about novel writing before, but they bear repeating, mainly because I’m going to elaborate on them for a bit.  Here they are: “There are three rules for writing a novel.

Fourth of July Thoughts by Debra H. Goldstein (click for comments)

Fourth of July has become synonymous with flag waving, excitement and best of all hamburgers, hotdogs, ribs, cole slaw, potato salad, watermelon and banana pudding.

Guest Blogger: Elaine Viets – The Art of Living
