What separates each writer from the rest?

Are all writers “created” equal?

The simple answer — No.

Granted, we are all apprentices to the craft of writing.

Here, we are the same, but that’s the end of our sameness.

Well, at least it should be.

Most beginners seek to emulate those they view as successful.

For me, I looked to Stephen King. Then, it was Terry Brooks, Nora Roberts and Sherrilyn Kenyon. I admired them for what they excelled in.

Stephen King has the knack for taking a story and twisting it into something unexpected. His characters tend to be heavily flawed.

Terry Brooks is the master…


I recently listened to a podcast by The Career Author where they discussed about short fiction. The gentleman brought up something I’d never truly thought about before.

That short story and short fiction can mean two different things.


Like I usually do when faced with a new way of thinking, I consulted a dictionary for further clarification.

Short Story: “a story with a fully developed theme but significantly shorter and less…


First of all, I’ve never interviewed anyone who co-wrote a book so I am intrigued!

Let’s begin by with introductions. Tell us a bit about yourselves.

Camilla: I am a writer. I’ve been a teacher, an actor, a waiter, a shop girl, a production assistant, an office temp, a bookstore clerk, a wine rep, a social media content manager, a restaurant manager, a caterer, a martial arts instructor, and a bartender. I am a perpetual student and devourer of books, movies, and TV shows. I am a dog lover and devoted cat servant.

I have written six books in the OF CATS AND DRAGONS series with Carol E. Leever, and three books and three novellas in the WEREWOLF WHISPERER series with Bonita Gutierrez. …

Last year, I wrote on how I’d thought Avi Kaplan was possibly compiling an album by using the songs he released throughout 2019.

I was right!

Well, partially.

On January 24th, he will be releasing an EP but with new songs (with the exception of I’ll Get By which is the title of the EP and the upcoming Tour).

The Wave

From Rotten Tomatoes:

On April 22nd, Avi Kaplan announced The Otherside Tour set to begin this summer. Tickets go on sale for the public on April 26th.

Since it’s National Poetry Writing Month and that I’m from a family that’s musically inclined, I’ve wondered how interesting it was that songs, in general, can sound so poetic (and why on earth do people believe that poems can’t be sung?).

Both have a beat (rhythm) as you sing (or say) the words. Both have verses which tend to have some sort of a rhyming scheme. Both have the power to evoke emotions and images. On the other hand, the lines of a song tend to be much shorter than most poems; and frankly, a lot catchier (easier to remember).
