Worst Writing Advice I Ever Got

Worst writing advice I ever got? Honestly, this is a hard question because if someone is giving it as advice, it’s because that tip worked for them, or is a standard for most, if not all, writers.

For me, just like in most life situations, there is no BAD advice. There is advice that is given with bad intentions, or without all the information, or with a perspective that doesn’t work for the situation. Those can all apply to writing, too. There is also taking good advice and going way overboard.

That is what I find happens the most with writing. Taking a good rule, and being so rigid or methodical about it that you end up with bad writing or a boring story.

Here a few examples… Continue reading “Worst Writing Advice I Ever Got”

How Far Back?

How far back does your earliest memory go?

My most vivid memories start around the ages of seven and eight. Before that, it’s mostly snippets or specific moments. Special occasions like Christmases and birthdays. Family visits. Tea parties my mother would put on for my neighborhood friends. My first watch–Mickey Mouse. The different houses we lived in before settling in Texas.

GrandmotherMy very first memory, though, goes all the way back to when I was probably about two years old, at a guess, and involves my grandmother. Continue reading “How Far Back?”

Cheat Sheet for Great Beginnings

Beginnings and endings are my favorite parts of books to write. Not just because with one I am starting a new exciting journey and the other I’m finally crossing the finish line. Endings we’ll talk about another time, but beginnings…

Beginnings I love because I get to use a relatively small amount of real estate to get readers invested while setting up the entire rest of the story.  I’m not talking about the first page, but the first roughly 10%. Sounds like a lot, but it’s not. Which is what makes it so exciting as a writer. It’s a challenge I love to dig into.

In the beginning

So… what goes into writing a great beginning? Continue reading “Cheat Sheet for Great Beginnings”

Favorite Thing I’ve Written

My favorite thing I’ve written in the paranormal romance genre isn’t quite out yet. The good news is…it releases this year!

InfernoRising-Logo

The Rogue King will be the first book in my Inferno Rising series featuring dragon shifters. In addition, this series blends with/shows a different piece of the same world as my Fire’s Edge series. Fire’s Edge is Enforcers in the colonies, while Inferno Rising is the kings of the clans.

Why is this one my favorite? A few reasons. Continue reading “Favorite Thing I’ve Written”
