Speaking at the Oakland Anthology Book Launch

I was asked to speak about the California Writers Club members and the people from my writing class who submitted stories to the anthology called IMMERSION.

Jennifer King presents us with a celebration each year where we enjoy connecting with Oakland writers.

Character Goals

A New Year brings thoughts of improvement, creating resolutions, determination to stick with them. What about your characters?  What are their goals? Major? Minor?  Make a note of them and check back in three months, six months, or just before your novel goes to the publisher. Did the goals change?  How many were accomplished?

The clearer you, the writer, are about those goals, the more real the story will be for the reader.

Art Is…

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Art is knowing which ones to keep.

~Scott Adams
