Writing & Publishing

I tend to blog a lot about writing, and I’ve decided to make all my old posts on the subject a little simpler to find.

Not every writer climbs the same kind of mountain, so my answers to some of the problems I’ve overcome, or am still wrestling with, may not be the right answers for you. I’m sharing them in the hope that they’ll be of some use. I certainly wish I’d known all of these things some years back…

First up is the most popular post on my site, one dedicated to finding focus before starting the writing process. After that, the rest of the essays are roughly organized by category. Keep in mind that some of these posts, being years old at this point, may mention subjects that are long since old news (the release of a new book or the appearance of a new movie) or send you to a related page off-site that’s no longer there. I’ll try to keep an eye out for the last, but if you find one, please let me know.
