You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. ~Ray Bradbury~

I foud this book at Barnes and Noble that I just had to pick up while I was there. It's called 102 ways to Earn Money Writing 1500 Words or Less. It's a book of writing venues from magazines to greeting cards to just about anything you could imagine someone writing.

I've wanted to make writing a career, not just as a novelist, but as a freelance writer and this book is a guide to making that happen. I'm very excited to start exploring some of the options that are available and get writing on them!!

YA Fiction...or Autobiography???

It seems recently, that absolutely everything I write turns into something autobiographical. These ideas aren't original, they're already-lived stories, many with not-so-happy endings. I've started doubting myself and my ability to create something original that anyone would want to read. Are my characters really speaking to me? Or is it just the ghosts of my past coming back to haunt me?
