Profiling Personalities

Given my IWSG post this month, I am working diligently towards a goal of sustaining myself. Not just because I want to be self-reliant, but because I have to be. I’m sure another place would open up to me and I can move and live there for a spell, but I don’t want to keep doing that. As they say, Need is the Mother of Invention.

Look at the name of the ship. From Red vs Blue.

I want to chronicle my journey as it pertains to writing. This blog is a major part of me, and all of you who visit my site have made it what it is. This year I expect to get to 50k views. So it’s only fitting that I keep everyone up to date.

However, this is a Writing Education blog, so I will try to throw some education in, for good measure.

#ISWG – Starting Again

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2It is the first Wednesday of the month, and that means it is time for Insecure Writer’s Support Group.

For those not familiar with this, it was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh with the idea of picking one day to share your fears and weaknesses so that you can find comfort with other writers who likely have the same fears and weaknesses.

It’s been quite some time since I have done this, and I apologize for that. I can only hope I will be doing this more often from now on.

Grammar: Breast vs Tit [REPOST]

tools of the tradeThis not exactly a grammar issue but a stylized choice. Like other segments on this site, I discuss the rules of Grammar which turn out not to be rules but a stylized option.

Now if you came here expecting literary erotica and pictures of naked women, I am sorry to disappoint you. This will be a mature article on the discussion of how to describe a body part found on a female (technically a male too, but men get skiddish on the suggestion of that).

Squeaky Chair Interviews – Brian Martinez

GoodGuyPromo-194x300This was my last interview of 2014. This will likely be my last interview for quite some time. This was done last minute, so there is no additional information beyond the video interview.

Brian Martinez is a comic book artist and writer, on his website Good Guy Comic. A comic that is about men and the challenges they face in dating and romance. This is a good comic, that while his main character has lots of self-doubt, his portrayal of female characters is top notch, that all of them are multidimensional and add to the story.

I got the privilege to interview Brian about his life, his art, and his writing.
