I've heard every excuse in the book. I stopped writing because... The true reason and the made up story hardly if ever match. In the end the actual event is... You stopped writing. Only to put huge blame on having a Writers Block. I don't believe in it nor do I accept it as an answer. Those are fighting words and I'm going to win.

I love listening to people tell me why they stopped writing. The stories might be different. But the cure could've easily been the same. Being a writer doesn't happen. It requires exercise as well as discipline. But be careful. Nobody likes to be judged and or given a reason to hide.

Becoming a daily writer in 1994 didn't seem like a chore. It was more like learning how to stop being a pack rat. I horded everything. From pictures to doodles to artful expression cut from magazines. I was my goal to develop a relationship with that personality with so many identities on the inside. 21 years later. I think its time to help you begin a path of incredible discovery.

I believe the greatest writing teachers on the planet are those that use writing as a tool. One day Texting and Face Booking might be an Olympic sport. But in 2015. Lost is the art of word dumps and doodle droppings that happen to take the shape of paragraphs and sentences.

I'm shocked that it's been nearly four months since I've shared a few paragraphs from my new book Scrambled Eggs. A lot has happened over the past few months. The author has stepped away and the editor has taken over. Oh Oh... lets hear his side of the process of writing.

Todd Moss, who was the chief U.S. diplomat for West Africa (overseeing 16 countries) under President George W. Bush, draws on his deep knowledge and his real-life experience confronting an actual coup in Africa when, in August 2008, he was dispatched by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Mauritania to negotiate with General Aziz just days after he overthrew a democratically-elected president. Now, Moss incorporates his extensive foreign policy experience into his new book, THE GOLDEN HOUR. It’s a political theory where there are vital hundred hours following a political coup d’état when there is still a chance that diplomacy, backchannels or military action might reverse a deadly chain of events. Already garnering remarkable praise, Todd Moss has both the perfect background and the natural storytelling skills to pull readers in from the first page, taking them deep inside the clandestine world of 21st century American national security, and the layers of mostly anonymous Washington staffers who actually operate the levers of national power.

Because radio disc jockeys hit the internet for the quick bits about artists. Listeners have never been able to get a full grip on who Michael Buble' is. Until now. From the I Heart Radio Studio I'm Unplugged and Totally Uncut with the woman that brought Michael to fame. Beverly Delich. Michael Bublé just kicked off his Summer 2014. How long a road was it to this status and who believed in him back in 1993 when he was an 18-year old performing at a Local Youth Talent Show in Vancouver? The answer is Beverly Delich - entrepreneur, talent agent extraordinaire, president of Silver Lining Management and author of just released, Come Fly With Me…Michael Bublé’s Rise to Stardom (A Memoir), published by Douglas & McIntyre. Come Fly With Me reveals Delich’s true behind-the-scenes story of the raw beginnings of Bublé’s struggles and the stepping-stones that led to his ascent to the top. “From the very beginning, deep inside his heart and soul, Michael wanted the brass ring and nothing less”, says Delich. “Even facing adversity, his desire for a major label and a major management company were the objectives.”
