Or, in this case, listen … Continue reading Impressions: The Power of Ambition

And, indeed, The Horse and his Boy take places within the Narnia mythos, but not within the land of Narnia itself. I don’t know whether it’s common knowledge, but I’ve always felt that most people know … Continue reading Impressions: The Horse and His Boy

Three Writing Tenets I Try To Follow

Quick Caveat: These tenets are what/how I strive to write. I adhere to them to the best of my ability, but some things are harder to avoid than others.
