The Ultimate List of Supernatural Creatures for Creative Writers
Looking for something different to add to your book? Check out this list of supernatural creatures for creative writers. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of the same type of supernatural being in every novel I read.

50 Ideas for Adding Action to Your Dialogue | Writing Tips
Do you want to make your dialogue sound more believable? Try these 50 ideas for adding action to your dialogue. When I first started writing, I never added action to my dialogue.

No, I’m not dead.
Okay, I know it's been a while since I posted and all I can say is I'm sorry. I have been up to my neck in home improvement projects. Sanding, staining, painting, I've been doing it all. The good news is my den walls look great. The bad news is once I finish painting the living room and hallway we're laying new hardwood floors. Which I guess technically that's good news too. Or [...]

It's just too much to type) really reeled me in. Of course I [...]
