Social Media, My New Playground

Over the past few years social media has exploded with ways to connect to friends and family.  As a marketing tool, they were economic and direct ways to interact with your readers. But there are too many to use them all effectively. Marketing gurus always advise a new one along with ways to use them….


Little Glimpses, Big Inspiration

I have far more ideas for stories written in my notebook than I will ever have time to write. Some are favorites for me to think about as I fall asleep or as I’m driving. I’ve tried to bring them into being a few times but so far it’s not worked. They’re fun but dont…


Writing for Perfection #MFRWAuthor

I have been called a perfectionist. I don’t think that is a bad thing and has served me well in my academic life as well as in my career. I like to think it makes me a better writer, too, but it has its downside–Perfection as a writer is impossible to attain. While everyone around…


My Writing Journey

Writing isn’t always a linear journey for me. There are fits and starts, good days and bad. Sometimes I write the story chronologically.

It’s logical that listening to music which enhances emotional responses in writers helps them express those feelings in their writing. ​We may not ever be lucky…


Comma Compulsion #MFRWAuthor #bloghop

My name is Trevann Rogers and I have comma issues. There I said it. My challenges can  be summed up in one word. Commas. Moreover, I’m an afficionado  of the Shatner Comma as well as the Oxford comma. With the first, it just makes sense to me that there should be a comma where I…


She Has My Back: Surviving the Writer’s Life #MFRWAuthor

Both my partner and I are writers. We understand the craziness that happens when a deadline approaches, or writer’s block moves in and settles down to stay awhile. We are lucky that we rarely have the same problem at the same time. We tend to be very supportive of each other’s writing process. She is slow…
