Welcome to my Blog!

I’ll keep the opening post here pretty short and sweet; just explain what I hope to accomplish with this.

Frist: I want to use this as a journal, tracking my progress in sending out query letters and synopses for my first novel. I hope that this might serve as a sort of road map for other aspiring authors and help me look back on the progress that I’ve made.

Second: I will be posting tips and tricks to fiction writing, revising, and submission for publication. I’m the kind of guy who will research something about ten times as long as necessary before doing it, which means I’ve obtained a lot of knowledge on these subjects already and I want to share.

Third: I want to dissect classical (and even modern) literature and find out how great writers are able to do what they do. I want to examine these things from cover to cover—openings, endings, characterization, description, structure.

Fourth: I want to disperse some of my knowledge on the basic tools of writing: this means grammar. Its hard to write when you don’t have the proper skills to communicate, and even I am probably rusty with mine. So a refresher course for everybody would be great.

That is pretty much it. Those are my goals and by keeping this simple I think that I can remain quite focused on them and keep turning out quality content on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

Enjoy the posts as they come in and welcome to my little corner of the web.
