Testing Out “Plot Factory”, A mini-peek, & Update

So, in my new approach to picking back up on my writing and sticking with it for the long haul, I’ve taken on task that I usually don’t. One of those tasks is to actually plan out my story before I start and as I go along. Out of the nearly 100 stories/novels I’ve written,… Read More

Work In Progress, #1 (An Update)

So, I’ve finally reminded myself that I’ve been doing a little too much playing around. And by ‘playing around’, I mean not putting my talent to use. Doubting myself entirely too much.
