Book Review : 5 stars The Emotional Wound Thesaurus This book is phenomenal. Not only does it provide pages of different emotional wounds and their elements, but it gives you psychological feel to all of them. I noted a number of wounds that I was already building up in a character I'm writing about, but … Continue reading Book Review: The Emotional Wound Thesaurus – Angela Ackerman
Writing Wild Writing Wild is a book not in line with how I view the world, namely the spiritual undertones. The author is too David Avocado Wolfe for me, with her messages of balancing ions in the body, energies, chakras, etc. A snake crossing your path has meaning only because you’ve given it meaning; not … Continue reading Writing Wild: Forming a Creative Partnership with Nature – Tina Welling
3 stars 18 year-old angry, rebellious, stubborn Stella is in jailed for the murder of 33-year-old Chris, businessman and millionaire. The question is: did she really murder him?

“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”---Anton Chekhov Descriptions make or break writing. There's nothing worse than reading a book, and being pulled out of the story by a bland description that seems more passive than active. One word of advice that I've seen multiple times, … Continue reading Show me the glint of light
Right now, I'm editing one of my newest books. And it's horrible. The work isn't what's horrible, it's the writing that is. I feel like my work falls so short of my standards, or other readers' standards, and others haven't even read the book! I also feel like I'm not a good writer and I'm deluding myself … Continue reading My manuscript, well, sucks
