Book Writing 101: Indie Dystopian with Patrick Skelton

Talking with Patrick was such an inspiring conversation and I'm absolutely dusting off my old writing project I started back when my daughter was first born. Thanking Patrick for all the tips, tricks, and habits of bringing enjoyment and creativity into the mundane things of life. Thinking deeper about the world and people can totally make connections to life and others better and much more meaningful.

But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought. - George Orwell 1984

Patrick and I discuss the beauty of imagination and what impact writing has on someone. In a media crazed world, it's more important than ever to keep imagination and thought alive.
