Bad Fences Make Bad Neighbors

Ciao, everybody. If you're here looking for this week's writing links, I had to delay the post a day. And here's why. We at Story Empire have a writing prompt to share today. The following short story is inspired by the Story Empire Friday Fiction Prompt: Limited and Focused Views. I'll give this fiction piece... Continue Reading →

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

So, this was a rough week. You may have noticed I wasn't around much. This was the last week I had to spend with my daughter before she goes away to college. This separation is hard for me—I grew up with extended family everywhere, so I became used to always having people around. I like... Continue Reading →

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

One-Sheets and Bios for Writers

Ah, Monday. The I-can't-believe-the-weekend's-over-already-and-I-really-don't-want-to-get-out-of-bed day. Every day of the week. Once I manage to get moving, I'm actually pretty productive on Mondays. It's kind of like a clean slate for me. I haven't blown any goals yet, so it's pristine. (By Friday, I've missed a lot of my to-do list targets, and I'm bummed. But... Continue Reading →
