    Nation building, world building, and character building.

    I usually try to create something within what already exists, but for my current novel, I created a small world inside the earth. It's a habitation of hummingbirds called Herald. I didn't delve too much into it - their light source is fireflies, their paper is leaves or parchment. I guess I...

    How do you come up with names?

    I usually try to use something that I feel describes them physically. For my finished novel, my main character is named Lorelei because she is an ice dragon. I think that name has something to do with ice. For my hummingbird characters, I chose names that made me think of something light and...

    The Instruction Book of Life

    The Instruction Book of Life

    As the saying goes, "Life doesn't come with an instruction booklet." Well, I think it needs to! If you could write a chapter, or book, in a series entitled "The Instruction Book of Life," what would your chapter, or book, be about? Mine would cover the importance of knowledge and include...

    Special: Are you it?

    That sounds like Landmark. Excellent group, and they talk about stuff like "getting out of your own way." It used to be called Est Training, but now it's a bit more friendly, but still as affective.
