Hurting People

I’ve said before that a big part of writing is observing the behavior of people.  This observation enables authors to be guided toward more realistic characters.  One observation that has become very apparent in recent years is hurt.  So many people appear to be defined by the past and the pain that was inflicted upon...

The Unexplained: Ghostly Photos

We’ve all seen them, pictures of a supposedly real spiritual entity.  Most people dismiss them as nothing more than creative fakes.  In some cases his has been proven to be true, but not all.  Skepticism of pictures is at an all time high in modern times due to the prevalence of photo editing software and...

Changes are Coming!

For the month of October I've decided to redirect my writing focus to other projects, instead of this blog.  I will still continue "The Unexplained" series weekly.  However, things like social commentary, thoughts on writing and life will be on hiatus.  Since "The Unexplained" fits so well into this month and it's my favorite blogs...

Yes, I’m familiar with the... Continue Reading →

Breathing Room for Writing

Are you a writer?  You know that it is often said that writing consistently is key.  This is something I wholeheartedly agree with, and if you have followed my blog for any length of time, you’ll know that.  Do you know what else is okay, perhaps even helpful?  Taking a break once in a while....
