Literature
How I overcome writer's block.
I'm by no means an authority on writing, but I do have eight unpublished novels under my belt. I hope that in sharing some of the lessons I've learned along the way, others might dodge a few literary hurdles. I don't believe all writers write alike, so I don't expect that my own approach to prose will work for everyone. Maybe not anyone. But if you glean something from my experiences, I'm glad to help.
How I overcome writer's block.

Writer's block. The dread curse of the literary world. It happens to everyone. Often, the darn thing settles like a boulder in our already precarious path and doesn't budge for days or weeks or maybe even years on end, leaving us bereft and parched in a creative desert. But while writer's block is a daunting challenge to overcome, it is only that -- a challenge. I used to get it a lot, and I still get it now, but I get it a lot less. How?

I write something else.
I'm not a rigid plot planner and I don't sink my teeth into one no

Welcome!

First off, thanks so much for taking the time to check out my page. It really means a lot to me that people are interested in my work, and I hope that you'll like it enough to come back, or maybe even leave a comment, I love making new friends!

I'm a writer and artist living in the pacific northwest. Most of my art is sci-fi/fantasy based and is mostly concept art for the fictional universe I've been working on for the past...five to ten years...something like that...

Anyway. Aside from my concept art, I also make tutorials for Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint, as well as some comics. This profile used to be the main site for my webcomic Beyond Fire which I had to put on an indefinite hiatus. I plan on coming back to it at some point, however right now I need to focus on developing my universe a bit more.

If you are at all interested in my artwork and/or universe, come follow me on my other social media sites.
