Creative Series III: The Creative Writer

Some of us DO have problems writing (or thinking of what or how we want to express ourselves) at times. The writing process, especially writing when you don’t “feel” like writing or downright procrastinating about your writing can happen for all kinds of reasons. You could be feeling ill, emotional or just lazy. So as a writer, what do you do?

The Monster Awakens…

Okay, I have started the engine for 5Artz. My partner feels that we are ready to start and that I am being too obsessive about wanting to ensure we have a perfect or near perfect website before we get started. I will confer with Bill Guthrie, but I am sure he will agree. I have […]

Creative Series II: The Foundation of Grammar

For those of you who are into Easter, Happy Easter! Today, we are talking grammar. Grammar is the foundation that writing is built on. If it were not for grammar, how we speak and what we write would be a chaotic soup of nonsense. In fact, we could be walking, talking and acting like the characters […]

Peeved #2: When We Go Out

    Sorry I’m late. I have a very good excuse. Honest. I was working with a good friend on a website that he wants to set up. He is a very busy man. Busier than I am and with a more important job. I hope the excuse is valid enough for me to get […]

Creative Series II: The Importance of Editing Your Work

I had the opportunity to talk to my mentor Bill Guthrie about editing  last week. I asked Bill how important it is to edit your own work. Bill’s response was akin to that of a writer who just gave him a stupid question. He didn’t come out and respond with that kind of tone, but he […]

“Making it”, Creatively

(Note: I am posting this now, since I noticed that three people have already viewed the blog, obviously to see what new material I have posted today. Unfortunately, I was working at the bookstore all day today. I know, I know…that is NO excuse. So, I am posting this excerpt from my old blog right […]
