Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24

Wow what a day. (I write this Friday afternoon). (Been running around to like 4 stores merchandising. I've been out since 9 o'clock in the morning) (Ooh and my new couch came) (The FedEx guy hates me) (I mean it's a giant box. You could fit like four of me in there. Maybe more).

If you've got nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.) Have'd some adventure recently. Kayaking, more drive-ins ("Where have … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22

As you may have heard, I finally finished the Maze Runner trilogy. (I haven't read the prequels...may not for a while.

Writing Routines: the Writer, the Myth, the Legend (good luck trying to follow my train of thought here)

Writing bloggers: Here is how I write a novel: One, I take the idea and put it in a special box. Two, I start working on character profiles. Three - Me: I AM CHAOS.
