Since the Monday Topic for this week dealt with villains and anti-heroes, I wanted to play a little game. I’ve listed the names of some characters from my books, along with descriptions. At the end of each description, you can decide if that character is a villain, anti-hero, or just an antagonist. This game isContinue reading “Let’s Play Villain, Anti-Hero or Just Antagonist!”
In every story that features characters, there is generally a “good guy” and a “bad guy”. You have a character you have labeled “the hero”, then you’ll also want to include a “villain”. However, there’s a character who walks the fine line in between these two: the anti-hero. The primary difference between a villain andContinue reading “The Monday Topic: The Villain vs The Anti-Hero”
In my opinion, the best thing you can ever make, is a mistake. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. Mistakes are wonderful. They’re invaluable learning experiences.

Today is June 10, and it’s National Ballpoint Pen Day. Today is the day we celebrate the world’s most popular writing instrument: the ballpoint pen. Long ago on June 10, 1943, Hungarian brothers Laszlo and Gyorgy Biro walked into a patent office in Europe to register a patent for their new writing pen design. SinceContinue reading “Ballpoint Pen Day”

There are also samples from Novocaine and Allan and Mac, however I must warn you: those samples are UNCENSORED!

The year is 2021, and normally, I wouldn’t turn to a writing handbook that was published in 1980. Let’s face it: with each passing year, the 80’s get further and further away from us (being an 80’s baby I know this for a fact).
