Writer’s Blocks

I have a degree in creative writing, but that’s not how I learned to write. I learned to write by writing. Badly at first, then a little better. The journey continues. Hemingway said it best: “we are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” My passion for words and stories has taken me on a lot of adventures, and I want to share my discoveries with others who might find them useful.

Why help other writers? Because indie authorship isn’t a competition, it’s a community. We’re all together in shattering the self-publishing stigma, so individual growth benefits all of us. Below is a curated collection of writer’s building blocks, my blog posts devoted to the craft. (They’re not exclusively for writers; readers may also find them useful for analyzing, critiquing, and appreciating literature.)
