Drafting, editing, and world building are the sapling in the sunlight, but the seed and roots that come first are the writer’s true creation story. As a child I often gazed out my window imagining, but that was but one … Continue reading
What I’ve learned over the years is that all that’s the same about the creation of each novel is that no matter what I do and how I begin they never go the same. That’s the reason why I chuckle … Continue reading
