The Creators Blog

For those who want to understand more about the craft and business of writing/publication

This section was made to give me a place to step just outside Wanted Hero and share some of my thoughts, perspectives, and experiences with my readers and fellow creatives.   It's hard to write passionately when you HAVE the full support and encouragement of your friends and family. Writing is hard. It's hard work. But it is INFINITELY harder when you lack such support. This section is for you, my friend. [Follow this world to get the updates and notifications of new materials]   Cause if you don't have that support, I'll do my best to make sure you have it here.   The question is: What do YOU want?   Until you decide, the rest of what you're going through doesn't really matter.   NOTE: These articles are in alphabetical order, NOT by date...just in case you care. I prefer 'evergreen' material, so that's what I try to write. What you read will work next year as well as today.
