I can answer questions about writing and the creative process in any form or genre. I have been a writer and writing coach and teacher for 15 years, working with NY Times bestselling authors and absolute beginners on memoirs, screenplays, TV scripts, solo shows, personal essays and standup comedy.
I'm the author of "How To Be A Writer Who Writes" (http://www.amazon.com/How-Writer-Who-Writes-ebook/dp/B00AZ8CLY0/) and the writer's reference book "Miller's Compendium of Timeless Tools for the Modern Writer" (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1060921494/millers-compendium-a-comprehensive-writers-referen). I have taught at UCLA Extension, Humber College, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Cal Arts, NY Institute of Technology, Teen Canteen and numerous arts and cultural centers. I am co-director of The Comedian's Way Workshop for Writers, Performers and Other Humans, which I have taught privately with Beth Lapides in Los Angeles for 15 years. I have been coaching writers privately for almost 10 years. I have also worked as a writer and producer for TV, film, stage, radio and online media.

I love the creative process and helping writers be more productive. It's therapeutic for the writer and the society at large. I think people are endlessly fascinating and I love helping them reveal themselves.
I don't believe a writer has to write every day at the same time or even keep a regular schedule. I am not an advocate of the 'morning pages' for most writers. I don't think childhood is the key to everything. I think the pulpiest genre can be artistic and supremely satisfying and the loftiest literature can be boring and tangential.

Hi Ajay - This sounds like a great project, but your question is quite broad. My main suggestions are: - Keep the book, the chapters, the paragraphs and the sentences short. - Use catchy, accessible
Hi William - What is the address of your blog so I can take a look? I don't know how to advise you on your archiving question, but I would be happy to address your second question about how to position
There are two formal ways to register a piece of material (both charge fees): the Library of Congress - which, I believe keeps the material on file indefinitely) and the Writers Guild of America (WGA)
Hi James - Technically you own the copyright and intellectual property rights to anything once it exists in 'any fixed medium', which would include a digital file on your computer. If you post it online
Hi Adreanna - First, I salute you for trying to make the system better. I think your next step should probably be to solicit comments/suggestions/input from 'experts' who will lend breadth and credibility
