When someone inspires you, or if you see someone who is using their writing gift to help others, please take the time to thank them publicly by giving them this award..."

With these sentiments in mind, we’d...

I just finished writing my second novel, and thought I’d share the process with other writers.

As usual with me, the inspiration to write this book came from more than one place. The first is the phenomenal success of Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I have read, somewhere, that it outsells the Bible worldwide.

Can you imagine how many books could have been spoiled if the characters in them ran background checks? Of course, writers want to keep the reader in suspense and entertained.

Two Flash Fiction Pieces by Wodke Hawkinson - Thwarted & Unthwarted

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Monday, December 3, 2012,
