I am a struggling writer.  Mostly just struggling with getting paid.  That, and finding time to write while running two businesses.  (That’s that whole getting paid thing!)

This blog is about writing and my journey as a writer to figure things out – things like how to get paid.

Here’s my deal as of early 2016:

I have completed my first novel, Caged, a vampire/zombie mash-up. While looking for a literary agent to represent me, I am also trying to build a platform for my fiction writing. Visit my fiction blog and follow me.

I also perform true, personal stories on stage.  I mostly perform with my storytelling troupe, Better Said Than Done, but have also told stories at Story District, SWAN Day, TEDx, McLean Bible Church, and for fundraisers for several different non-profits. You can learn about storytelling shows, workshops and presentations at Better Said Than Done.

Follow this blog if you want to hear about my latest adventures in storytelling – whether with true, personal stories, or with trying to get my fiction published and out in the world.

Well done and all the best – I came across your site via the ‘Bad Blogger’ post and had a look around. I teach at a boys’ school in Sydney Australia, and am looking to start, along with another teacher, a storytelling ‘group’ that meets once per month, to tell “true stories”. In the meantime, a great site and I’ll certainly have a look around at some of your posts…

Thanks for your comment. Yes, I think storytelling is great for everyone. Just teaching people how to do it (we have classes) is such a great feeling because you see the way it clicks. There is a moment when they understand how to talk about something personal and true in a compelling manner. It could be great for some young people to try out. Best of luck with your venture!
