Just as the title says, it's sometimes hard to find the time to write. Whether it's a blog post or my current WIP, it's such a pain for me some days. I've gotten the advice (multiple times) to set aside a time every day to write. Fifteen minutes, an hour, three hours, it doesn't matter … Continue reading Finding The Time
Sad fact: Sometimes articulating the thoughts in my head is easier said than done. I know what I mean to say, but when I try to put them down on paper, or computer, or in everyday conversation, they don't come out as well as I'd hoped. Take for instance some of my blog posts. I … Continue reading Where Did My Words Go?
January 2013 Blog Chain The Number 13 Here we go in 2013, starting the Blog Chain from Absolute Write off with a bang!

But while I couldn't sleep last night I was thinking about this...right before I … Continue reading Going Back Again and Again…..and Again…
I'm always curious about how other people began their career, or attempted career, in writing. Mine isn't all that interesting to anyone but myself...but I suppose that would be true for most people. For as far back as I can remember I've always loved reading. I don't remember when exactly it happened, my youth is … Continue reading A Little Bit ‘O History

One thing is for sure, typing with one finger drastically reduces my rambling.Just a quick update on my writing activity as of late:The Occult Collection is currently in edits. Oh yeah! But on the downside, my laptop screen decided to black out on me so it's … Continue reading And Away We Go!
