My Precious

The Big Nope The first time I ever handed a manuscript to a total stranger for a critique, I received feedback that left me shaken. My critique partner said, "I don't believe your inciting incident." The inciting incident changes the trajectory of the story, sets the whole thing into motion and, according to him, it... Continue Reading →

Good Knight

It's that time of year again! Time for me to spend one hour and thirty-three minutes repeatedly mainlining the most ridiculous, low budget content put on film.

For the Love of the Secondary

I have been stuck on my manuscript for weeks. I wish I could say this is an anomaly, but I've been here before.

With three projects in various stages of writing, editing, and querying, I couldn't give it my attention, but it sat patiently waiting for me in the back of my mind. It's been a long time since I've had a brand new... Continue Reading →

The Value of Work

I recently started listening to the audiobook for Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America by Linda Tirado.

She narrates the book with a clear and resolute tone and I noticed one thing in particular. She doesn't... Continue Reading →
