Writer's Block/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can answer a many questions about writer's block. I am particularly helpful in the areas of character development, storyline development, etc. and I can provide authors with an array of tools to help them organize their work. I am also quite good at discussing how to work in symbolism, allegory and themes throughout your piece. As a psychology major I can help you answer questions about a character's behaviors or motivations.

Experience in the area

I minored in English for my Bachelor's degree. I have also written several books and I run a small publishing company (before you ask, we're not accepting submissions at this time). I have written both fiction and non-fiction books and I have been published in newspapers and written articles for major internet websites.
