EXCERPT
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Three more gunshots rang out as his son David, stamps three bullet holes the size of golf balls in his dad's face. David calmly watches him slide down the wall and slump forward. While Clyde lies dead on the ground, momentarily twitching, the only thing David notices is the death grip Clyde has on the pipe with fumes still seeping out.
Satisfied, David swiftly throws his hood on before walking to the mouth of the alley and looking both ways. When all seems clear, he puts his head down and scurries out. Unbeknownst to David, a pair of eyes had been watching the entire time.

Guest Post
For me, writing my first draft is easy. When I write, I already have the book in my head. I simply formulate it into book form. It just comes natural. It sort of like setting the table before the meal. The hard part for me is the revision aspect, that is where I incorporate the right words, the places, settings, dialogues, voices, etc. Anytime I write my first draft, I don’t get hung on the technicalities of trying to make the book perfect, my first time around. I just write the story and let the pen be my guide. Now you might laugh, but I keep all of my first drafts. I don’t know why, but I consider my first draft my masterpiece and I take pride in it. For me, it shows how far I have come and who knows, maybe one day, my first draft will be worth some money.
Thank you for your time.
