We are finishing the week by doing a brief examination of the life and times of writer Stephen Crane who wrote “The Red Badge of Courage.”
A brief discussion and review of the short story “The Garden Party” by Katherine Mansfield.
Here’s a brief review of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Enjoy!
Yesterday, we discussed James Joyce who was an incredibly influential writer and made some innovations in writing (stream-of-consciousness, for example), but he also low-key assisted with adding new words to our vocabulary.
I have mentioned my minor obsession with modernist literature, and James Joyce falls right in line, although I always find his work difficult to digest (I don’t think I’m alone in this). However, as we know, just because literature can be difficult doesn’t mean it should be ridiculed or ignored. For today’s post, let’s take a look at Joyce’s life and a few major works!
It’s not uncommon in the writing world for authors of any stature, from novice to expert, to set aside works because they lack the knowledge, skill, or motivation to complete them.

The weekend is upon us and I feel like walking along the shore and dipping my toes into the lake while trying to appear writerly. In reality, I’ll probably end up cooking hot dogs for my family and watching a terrible 80s-horror movie (but it’s okay to have romantic visions of ourselves).
For today’s post, I have assembled some blog-writing tips and ideas that I think will help you out in your blog-writing journey, so, enjoy!
