  1. Hi, just stumbled upon your blog by chance. I think the design is excellent – I’m very interested in ways of making blogs look individual – and your novel Sounds From a House sounds fascinating. I’m exploring the subject of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in my two novels, though not war related. All the best, LawrenceEz

    • Hi Lawrence. Glad you stumbled onto my blog b/c it gave me a chance to find yours. I look forward to learning more about your two novels. PTSD is both heartbreaking and fascinating, and in my opinion, makes for an emotionally grueling writing subject. If you have any questions about making blogs look individual, email me. Cheers.

  2. Hi Dustus, thanks. I’m tackling a cliche in thriller writing but attempting to deal with it in an original way – the issue of dealing with a truama by repressing memories that are later triggered. Emotionally grueling, like you say. I’m in the revision stages of a novel and expect to get the draft back to an editor in the next few weeks. Pretty exciting. I haven’t had writer’s block once during this latest rewrite.

    • Hi Lawrence. A thriller sounds like it would be fun to write, especially flipping the script on stale cliches. Excellent. When I was younger I used to hate revising. Now it’s my favorite part of creating a novel. Over the span of 11 years, I may have revised Sounds From A House a thousand times. Enjoy the process. Relish every opportunity to improve your craft. Not having writer’s block certainly helps. And about the design of this blog… It’s the basic WP Ulysses theme (scroll all the way down to the bottom of page). The header is what i consider a pretty minimalistic photoshopped banner with photo (by the great Kim Lennox).
