Removing the unwanted bits.

October 29th. 2016

I have now more or less broken the back of my first draft. I still have about 10,000 words to go before reaching my initial target of 80,000. When I have finished the re-write, I expect to raise this figure by about ten percent. If I was still under contract to my last publisher, now defunct, I would have been asked to trim the word count by a considerable margin. As an Indie writer, I can do as I please, although I have to remember that more words does…

I'm truly offended!

I’m offended; flat out, totally affronted, will never get over it  kind of offended. And what was it that brought on this state of affairs? I’ll tell you; the number of people who think that being offended is a right.

Being offended is not a right, it’s not even an issue. If something offends you, move on. If someone says something you don’t like, don’t listen,…

Why I wrote the self-help book, Fast-track to Fabulous Fulfillment

Ever since the 1960s, I have been inspired by the best wisdom literature of the self-help and self-improvement genre. After amassing a wealth of knowledge in this field over several decades, I decided to compile what I considered the best of what I had learned into a self-development home-study course. This was before the internet took off as a public free-for-all, so my course was publicized through magazines primarily. I self-published the course from home,…

My rules for writing romance

With: J. Arlene Culiner

I have very definite rules when writing romance. My books have to contain the following elements:

·      Realistic heroes and heroines — people who are just like us, and who find themselves on the magic journey of falling in love
·      No business moguls, no billionaires — just intelligent men and women who feel passionately about what they do
·     …

A Patchy Week (Apache?)

October 22nd. 2016

Looking at my diary for the previous seven days, it’s blank. Anyone would think I don’t do anything. I’ve managed to add about two thousand words to my WIP, but have had to interrupt the flow because of hospital appointments, a flu jab, and a trip to Specsavers. We also made a pointless journey to a garden centre to buy something they didn’t stock. We didn’t know that until we arrived. So, stayed there, had lunch and drove home. Sometimes the week is more…

As a storyteller living in the countryside, one who loves the seclusion and now has online forums to advertise; I figure it this way. I love what I do. If anyone else likes what I do I have conquered one obstacle, I have shared my vision with (someone) out there.

I began telling tall stories on paper with a pencil, then my mother picked up an old typewriter from a garage sale, so I spent countless hours learning the keys, making a ton of errors, and…

The Skeletons in our family are marching out of the grave, slowly but with great ambition my book is ending this viscous cycle

Post Trauma: Facing My Pain and Embracing Change , started out as a tool to help me but over the last three years I have found that it is helping many people in my extremely dysfunctional family share their stories of abuse and the pain that it has caused them in their life.

I began sharing my story after realizing I had been addicted to prescription pain pills for the better part of twenty years. I also began to realize that my childhood abuse had left many more scars than I would…
