My Own Book!

February 16, 2011

Sometimes it Just Flows…

February 13, 2011

Today was a great writing day. I started out with the goal of finishing my novella, Naked Treats. It looked like I needed about 2,000 more words to get that done, though I wasn’t exactly sure of the details of the story’s ending.

Presenting Mr. Morgan

January 29, 2011

I’m currently trying my hand at writing a novella. Planned length about 16,000 words.

As you can imagine, the pacing and level of character development is vastly different between the two types of stories. […]
