The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Story Cubes

Back at Christmas, I found a package under the tree for me from the Catbird that was the approximate size and shape of a deck of cards. When I picked it up, however, it was clear that it wasn’t a deck of cards. This felt a little heavier. Denser. And when I picked it up, […]

Monday Musing: A Change In Style

Be warned, this is a top-of-my-head post, so it may end up not making any sense. I know where I’m starting, but I’m really not sure where it’s going to end up, or how it’s going to get there. There’s a woman in my writers’ group who is legendary among us for two things: first, […]

Weekend Update

Warning: Not fully awake, less than a full cup of coffee in my system! -School started last week for the Catbird. Two days down so far.
