Winning Writing Contests

New Post at TWC – The Art of Two-Dimensional Characters

A master novelist paints his story with dynamic two-dimensional characters. The characters are woven into the story like puzzle pieces. Each is important to the final picture, but standing alone they bring no significant revelation to the final image. Two-dimensional characters are flat. They lack depth, are partially developed, and often are stereotypically inclined. But stories need two-dimensional characters. They bring the story to life, […]

My New Post at TWC – When Weed Words Creep into Your Writing

Promethus Review

“I think they want us to come and find them.” That’s researcher Elizabeth Shaw’s conclusion when she and Charlie Holloway (her scientific and romantic partner) discover 35,000-year-old cave drawings of people surrounding a giant man pointing at six circles in the sky—drawings that match findings from a multitude of other ancient civilizations.

Movie Review – Snow White and the Huntsman

They say the former king’s daughter, Snow White, has escaped, bless her. You hadn’t heard? It’s all up and down the street. Haven’t you even seen all those guards riding with swords clanking?
