Articles relating to writing

Over many years of writing, I have developed some useful techniques for making the writing process easier and more efficient. I have also studied reams of material about creative writing. I hope the results of all this might assist other writers through these articles. The list will grow with time.

I believe it is important for serious writers to have their own website, so I include articles to make the decisions and process easier for them - or anyone else interested in creating a personal website. There are various ways you can go about this without paying someone to do it for you, and I will be discussing the pros and cons of DIY-website creation and what is involved. (Please note, however, I do not have the time to give personal advice on such matters.)

READER COMMENTS:

"This is one hell of a book, excuse the pun; and so well researched, and the thoughts are radical on this matter... [the] Albert Einstein line, very relevant to-day and very much relates to what you have written... I was totally intrigued... and found it to be very informative." (Tom Bye - Authonomy)


"The most abstract of concepts are communicated in a clearly digestible form… There is a tremendous need for the genre represented here: arguments which transcend the physical world. For many, if not most, the task of adequately preparing oneself to respond to such questions is simply too daunting. I appreciate the scholarly professionalism and the extensive referencing… [The author] rises to the challenge of what most would consider an extremely difficult calling." (James Revoir - Authonomy)
