The actual process of writing has not changed much over the years. It still involves making the time to write and putting one word after another.

Everyone who knows me cannot believe I am an introvert. Deep down, I'm shy. It's true. It's chronic and can be very debilitating. 

But no one recognizes this fact because I hide it well. I always hear, "No, you're not."

There is a movie streaming on Amazon Prime called "The Words." It's an interesting flick if you have time to check it out. I won't spoil it, but let's say it is the story of authors, so it draws me in with that premise. Side note: I am a sucker for any story involving...

I am writing this today in the middle of an anticipated snow event in north Georgia. All surrounding schools have been canceled, the roads are nearly devoid of traffic, and I find myself being able to work from home. I thought it was time I answer a question I receive...

January is always a time of year when every person, publication, and business seems to be producing an annual report, a recap of their year, a presentation for stakeholders, etc.
