Articles Written for Authors

Paisley Notes Notebook
As an author learning more and more about writing and the business of writing every day, I am not a guru. I am more than willing to share what I do know, though. With a background in computers and computer information systems, I may know a few things that would be helpful for you. Please be aware that I am not an expert in all things writerly.

The information imparted in these articles is to be considered educational in nature, but as in most areas of life, there are no guarantees that just because something works for me, it will work for you. That said, I hope you find something here that will interest you, entertain you, or help you through your author's journey.
