I get asked questions every day about starting, finishing, and shipping things. Let’s be honest: I bring this on myself. Not only do I write about these topics, but I ask everyone I meet or who joins The Resistance to tell me what they’re struggling with (and how I can help). The nature of this […]
Ever since I can remember, I loved the idea of being a writer. After all, how cool would it be to create something as epic as The Lord of the Rings, or The Chronicles of Narnia, or Gates of Fire and know that this amazing story came from you? But time passed and I never did […]
