I live to write and write to live.

The Point of the Quill.

Writing’s hard, but it doesn’t have to hurt. Since mankind has made tools, they’ve made writing tools; even to etch out a buffalo on a cave wall. Whether it’s a stick, a quill, a pen or a computer, we write because we must write. That’s the point of the quill.

I am here to help you write. I am also here to help you overcome the hurdles you find in the course of writing. Why do so many people find it so hard to write? Why is it one of the most discussed subjects in writing? Why is writer’s block one of the most talked about subjects? I am here to help you overcome the obstacles.

I love the intersection between writing and the workings of the brain

Some more tidbits of my life: I have been writing all of my life. Most recently helping those in academia write their official C.V.

I am in the process of writing a book after finishing a wonderful career in theater administration. I am an alumnus of Mizzou with an Arts & Science degree. I have two more books to finish after the wip (work in progress).

 I freelance as well. If you wish to contact me about a writing assignment, please write me at

Bragging rights…or not:

Remember this guy?

Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.


 I got up at 4:30a.m. for one year during high school to attend a Zig Ziglar motivational classes prior to the start of the school day. And no boy was a motivating factor in this decision.

I’ve worked with Brad Pitt; which excites others more than me. Even when they find it was in highschool at the “restaurant style” Wendy’s.

More importantly, for writers; I have met and talked a great deal with Kurt Vonnegut. He was a lovely man and graced our home for a small gathering. When he listened to me speak, I felt there was no ego, no subterfuge, only a searching interest in the subject he was inquiring about. Not many men could do better. A fine writer and a fine man.


Other interests in addition to my writing:  reading, literature and literature theory, the writing process, visual and performing arts. I am taking a course now in Gamification through the Wharton School of Business and am in an intensive at A List-Bloggers. You can find me on Twitter, Linkedin, Google Plus, Facebook. I am in many writing forums. Click on any of the links at the topmost of the home page and they will jump to attention and take you to any social networking site that you wish. My Rebelmouse page may be found in the footer. This is where you will be able to see what I have been up to. 

I will use my knowledge to help you. Leave me a comment about what you are struggling with or need to further understand. I am at your disposal. I will help find the solutions to your problems. I will also keep you up to date on all of the new software and technology available for you, the writer and you, the reader.

Leave a few lines below and let my know what you need.

My best to you.
