Self-Imposed Stress

2017-04-16T13:01:30-06:00April 16th, 2017|Aell & Stiles, Conferences, Pikes Peak Writers|

An interesting thing about stress, especially self-imposed stress. I desperately wanted to get a new novel finished by Pikes Peak Writers Conference, so I'd have something fresh to pitch to the various agents/editors in attendance. To pull this off, I'd have to write about 1200 words a day, every day [...]

Wow. Where to start? Not from the beginning. That takes too long. This weekend was the 24th Pikes Peak Writers Conference. It went fantastic! I met loads of cool people. I made oodles of new friends. I attended quite a few excellent workshops. I met with editors, agents, authors, friends [...]

First off, a bit of distant back story. I've written a trilogy that is trunked. I consider it my "practice trilogy." It's not going to go anywhere for so many different reasons. However, these three novels allowed me to get where I am today as a writer. A writer that [...]

PPWC 2014 Recap

2014-04-28T17:16:52-06:00April 28th, 2014|Conferences, Pikes Peak Writers|

I'm at a loss for where to start. Our annual Pikes Peak Writers Conference has been the works for about 15-18 months. Yeah. It takes us that long to get everything ironed out and going properly. Now that the 2014 PPWC over, we're focused on 2015, but not after taking a well-deserved break [...]
