Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

I love writing books, and some of these are new to me. Thanks! My favorites include PLOT AND STRUCTURE by James Scott Bell, THE FIRE IN FICTION by Donald Maass, and STORY: SUBSTANCE, STRUCTURE, STYLE AND THE PRINCIPALS OF SCREENWRITING by Robert McKee.

I need to add Goal, Motivation & Conflict to my bookshelf. I heard Debra Dixon speak at a conference. She had a great tip about the book. Buy it from her website at a decent price. It shows up for $59 and up at Amazon. I'm looking up your no. 2 and 3 suggestions now.
