A Marshmallow Term

May 15, 2008

Parents Need to Act to Like It

May 14, 2008

I’ve been working with kids for a long time and I’ve seen some things that make me want to cry. It really hurts to see a kid put in the middle of a battle between parents. The kids are used to fuel the battle or hurt the other parent. Sometimes [Keep Reading]

I bought a mosquito net today. It only cost $10.00 and hopefully it will save a life. It is a small thing that everyone can do. People die everyday from Malaria caused by mosquito bites. A simple bed net can make a big difference. The nets bought [Keep Reading]

In response to a comment from last week’s post on comics, I have compiled a short list of comics that are definitely worth reading. Many of these titles can be found at your public library in the Graphic Novel section. This is how I discovered [Keep Reading]

First Draft Done

May 5, 2008

I finished the first draft of my novel last week. It clocks in at 233 pages and is 76,305 words long. I was aiming for 80,000 – 100,000 words so I came pretty close. When I write, I let the story just come out naturally. It’s like a journey and [Keep Reading]
