Unfuck my fear of dialogue.  In my writing and my life.

What is the best writing advice you’ve ever been given?

Who is your favorite author?

How do you make time to write?
I write constantly, whether or not I have a medium with which to archive or display it.  Sometimes, I wish I could make time to stop writing. 

Give us one word we should consider using as a prompt.
dregs- 3)  a small remnant; any small quantity.



  1. Hi! Welcome to the group! Is "mollynogging" a real word. I might have to look that up, but I am really pretty lazy and probably won't remember.

  2. It depends on the dictionary ;-) If I am not mistaken, it was coined by Richard Flanagan in his novel "Gould's Book of Fish," along with several other wonderful words. Mollynogging means being in the company of immoral women (prostitutes). It is also listed in the Grandiloquent Dictionary.

  3. I have no idea why a notification of this link didn't come through our email, but I'm glad I decided to pop in and check. Thanks for linking up, and welcome to the group. Unfuck the dialogue. Yes, I think I could use some of that as well. Glad to have you around.

  4. Brash. Foul. Manipulative. Well... I think I need to read more of your stuff!

  5. With just the amount of times you use the word Fuck on this blog I already know I will like it. lol I can be quite outspoken at times, and that is one of my commonly used words.

  6. Mollynogging??? You've inspired me in my choice of words, and I had to add "freak" to my selection. Ha!
