Nate. You Naughty, Naughty Boy

Nate, he's hot. As in hot-blooded Italian who is passionate about all things ladies and cars. Today we dive into his character in depth. WARNING THIS POST CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS ABOUT FORGED.

Nate's tall, broad-shouldered and excellent with his hands. He's become a wealthy mover and a shaker in the Portland area, but has kept his street smarts - stripes he earned in a life that hadn't come easy for him.

Legend II - Writing Interuptus

The sequel focuses on Lady MacLaoch's love, the Minory swordsman. [image via]
 I've been a major proponent for finishing a book even if you're not sure what in the hell you're writing about half the time. And for the most part I still believe in this philosophy, especially for new writers who have yet to finish a manuscript. It's the thrill of finishing (even a shitty first draft - as Anne Lamott would say) that propels new writers to have it reviewed then actually pursue editing it. At least that's what did it for me. But not any more.
