Thanks so much everyone who entrusted me with reading and critiquing your story ideas! I loved having the opportunity to see what you're up to and hope the feedback I gave you was at least a little bit helpful. I'd be happy to read any revised, more detailed, or totally new synopses you come up with. You have my mail, and you're welcome to send things my way anytime.

I'm really excited for everyone working on big projects, and there's a ton of potential in all of them. It's great to know the community here is full of so many awesome writers, and you should all go take a moment to check out the lovely deviants who are working so hard on their stories:

I've really enjoyed this project, and I'd love to keep doing it. For the foreseeable future, story coaching services are open. Send me a note or email your story synopsis to me at storycoaching@yahoo.com. Feel free to spread the word! I have time to do a few of these a week. It gives me a great excuse to go to my favorite coffee place and use my fountain pens!

A while back, I came across some amazing articles on plotting stories and character arc, and I've sadly kept them mostly to myself. No longer! Please check these out and enjoy their mind-blowing awesomeness.

Character-Driven Hero's Journey
What Should Happen at the Midpoint
The Secret to Subplots
The Need vs Want Character Arc

In other news, I'm back on track working on my Dreamcaster story. I might start a blog documenting my process or put some of it in my scraps on dA. More on that later. I'm also trying to learn the Colemak keyboard layout. It's a variation of QWERTY that puts all the most used English letters on the home row while moving as few keys as possible, and it's built right into Mac, Windows, and Android. Who knew? We don't still have to type like it's the 1800s!

OK, I should go. Happy Halloween! (In case I don't update before then.)

I like to consider myself a nerd with class--not so much because I'm classy but because I enjoy the classic things in life. I'm the kind of person who notices all the little specks of beauty and inspiration that tend to hide just out of sight everywhere we look, but I've been known to overlook giant billboards. I'm passionate about living a life of creativity and enjoy writing, design, photography, and architecture to name a few of my favorites.

I'm also a professional dog trainer. I bet that's a twist you didn't see coming! My dogs (and my clients' dogs) are incredibly smart, and they're always challenging me to find new and creative training methods and invent new tricks. They really are man's best friends. And let's face it, parkour is more fun with a border collie!
