Writing is Hard Work

by Suzanne D. Williams Being honest, there are a lot of bad books out there. I never realized how many until searching the book sale lists daily. Don’t get me wrong. There are a lot of good books as well. And excellent writers. But, though there is something to be said for having a gift […]

A Challenge for Indies

by Precarious Yates One of the best things about being an indie author is the whole idea of creative control. We get to tell the story we want to tell in the way we want to tell it. I tell you what, this was a major draw for me to delve into independent […]

No Such Thing As Writer’s Block

by Suzanne D. Williams I stared at the page, unsure what happened next or even if what I’d already written fit into the story. Frustrated, I blew out a breath and saved my work, closing the software. I’d try again another day. “Try again” because the only writer’s block I ever have comes from lack of vision. I hem myself in with outlines […]
