Hi I’m Richard L. Allen. I’m also a Christian, husband, and the father of two girls and two boys. I used to be a storyteller who believed that I could write a bestseller whenever I decided to sit down and put it on paper.
When I finally decided to write my masterpiece what followed was loads of my written material being pushed on sympathetic friends and family, getting bludgeoned by critique groups and editors, and many many years of reading everything I could find about writing. Finally I was published.
This blog is about developmental processes and about good writing. I believe the best advice anyone can give a new writer is to read creative, well crafted literature. Let’s share and talk about what is good.
