I was perusing a community forum recently when I read a fellow independent author ask why someone gave him a one-star review. It seems the person reviewing his book was angry over his use of big words. Yes, you read that correctly. The…Continue

My husband and I have affectionately nicknamed our five-year-old son “quiz master”. Dinner, car rides and quite moments are now his opportunity to ask us a variety of questions, rapid fire and nonstop. I’d always heard that children enter a phase where every statement is followed by the question “why”. However, I didn’t know there would also but a “who, what, when, where, how and to what extent.
His questions range from the hilarious to the absurd to the profound. Among…

Don't forget to vote for your favorite story idea at lepegg.com. The Julwrimo is just around the corner and I am looking forward to once more join the ranks the writers who competes in this style of competition whether its finishing a novel or starting and finishing a new 50,000 words.
If I should complete this competition it would put my word count for the year at 350,000 and then add another 50,000 in november for the NanoWrimo.

The Master said:
“These people make a big show of saying the right thing,
but their hearts aren't in it.
Because they act like they're worshiping me
but don't mean it,
I'm going to step in and shock them awake,
astonish them, stand them on their ears.
The wise ones who had it all figured out
will be exposed as fools.
The smart people who thought they knew everything
will turn out to know…

I wish I spoke well...and I'm not referring to the residual effects of tongue cancer on my ability to speak clearly enough so that other people can always understand me. I mean I wish I were able to put my thoughts together quickly enough to enable me to instantly say what I wanted to say, rather than saying something…Continue

Hello readers thank you for frequenting my blog site, and reading the published articles. Under the pseudonym Mr. Decal, I published the first article to Mr. Decal’s Blog on September 30, 2009. The first article titled “Decals and Labels, What is the difference?” http://www.decalfactory.com/wp-index.php/2009/09/decals-and-labels-whats-the-difference.
Since that time, I have published…

Publishers use words as measurments, writers use words as tools, readers use words as…Continue

Most writers have heard the maxim, “Show Don’t Tell”. And, even though action in a book can keep most readers turning pages, I find it oh, so ironic that those actions are being conveyed with words :-)
Language is strange! And strange means “foreign”. And, a blog written by someone who’s first language isn’t English prompted me to write this post.
Before I talk about that, I want to explore this Words/Deeds issue.

Oh god...guess I should come clean. What they say about never say never is true. I said there were two things you would never see in my books and now I have to eat my words. My first erotic romance has been picked up by a publisher and will be out sometime later this year. Anyone recall what those two things are?
They are the F-word and the…
