Happy Mother’s Day 

Happy Mother’s Day

My JaNoWriMo Update or Why Realm Makers Suddenly Seems Not Far Away

My JaNoWriMo Update or Why Realm Makers Suddenly Seems Not Far Away

After setting aside the manuscript I worked on for five years, which included writing two sequels, I started a project for NaNoWriMo. I’m doing JaNoWriMo this month to finish the draft.

An Extrovert Among Introverts – The Good, the Great, and the Never Again

At one point during Realm Makers, I sat with a fellow extrovert and we started counting. Of the 180 attendees, the count was 11 by the end of the conference, the count soared to 13. By this proportion, NAF is teeming with writerly extroverts. Brittany Valentine is another in this count. Even among us extroverts, our […]

Walking the Realm

Walking the Realm

Guest Blogger: Josh R Smith I’ve returned from Realm Makers 2016, and have finally caught up on enough sleep to be mostly coherent. Realm Makers is a Christian writer’s conference that focuses on the speculative side of fiction. Speculative is just a swanky word for Fantasy and Science Fiction.
