More on Writing

I've been starting back to the desk at regular intervals and am pushing my word counts again, which means more new content on the way. Hope you're pumped! I'm looking to have some goods for you by Fall (sept).

As I got going with the process of putting pen to paper (fingers to keys), I wrote a few pieces on the act of writing. In addition to my last post, here are a few short pieces I posted on Scribd

First is Why I Write, which was covered in my last blog post. To follow up on that, I posted "More on Writing" or Why Write (Part II) and then this very short pieces on starting up the mind muscle exercise of regularly writing, "Like Running."

More to come in this vein soon, perhaps, but mostly I'm working on a new novel that you'll have to hear to believe. It's gonna be a rocking fall for you to listen. Stay tuned around here!
