Hello, and welcome! My name is L.R. Gordan, and I am a recently self-published novelist.  You can check out my first novel, The Foreigner, on Amazon. I plan on using this site to reach out to readers, as well as to connect with, learn from, and encourage other writers. I will also be sharing a lot of whatever I happen to find interesting at any given moment (I’m on an ancient Egyptian kick at the moment).  I’ll be recommending books, podcasts, shows, and articles as I see necessary. I am especially interested in things that I find helpful in the writing process, although I have discovered that any writing tip will only work for some people, some of the time.

The two true rules when it comes to writing ? Many others have said it better, but here you go: 1. Keep writing 2. Write the book you want to read and worry about all the other stuff later (and there’s a lot of other stuff. But seriously, worry about it later). Also, please use Times New Roman font. I’ll like you better.

My goal is to post updates at least 2-3 times a month. Feel free to leave me questions or suggestions in the comments. I am really looking forward to connecting with readers and writers alike.
