R. Brady Frost on a Post-It Note

I bought a MacBook Pro this last Fall after starting my new job. The original intent was to use it for writing. And I have. I’ve written quite a bit, as a matter of fact. I’m a Windows user primarily, but I did use a Mac when I worked for Pearson School Systems some years ago. It wasn’t my preferred OS, but I don’t really have anything against Macs. Naturally, this begs the question: Why buy a Mac now? Well, my favorite writing and publishing applications are native to the platform, and that’s a pretty big deal. Anything that makes writing easier is a big plus in my book. Anyway… Every time I boot into my Mac, I get this … Read More

It was a beautiful Spring weekend here in Texas, but it didn’t start out that way.It was Friday and I sat at my desk, looking out the window as the raging wind tugged and pulled at our crepe myrtle trees. The sky was overcast and I began to wonder whether this camping trip was going to work out…

2017 is coming to a close and as we reflect on the year behind us, we look forward to the days and adventures 2018 will bring. My writing plans this year aren’t new years resolutions, but a continuation of the hard work I’ve been putting in to chase down my dreams.

Final Hope Gets a New Chapter 2

Final Hope, an upcoming novel by R. Brady Frost

When I had the first idea for Chlorophyllium 9 as a short story in 2008, it was a flash of inspiration, but just a tiny snippet of the story as a whole. Like a glimpse at a scene, I knew there were several more layers to uncover before the rest of the idea revealed itself. But that one image has remained the heart of the story, even as it’s grown to almost novel length.

Just a Touch of Fall

We aren’t the only ones left confused by this chaotic weather. The newly planted trees in my yard are having a hard time adjusting. First losing their leaves and now attempting to grow new ones. They must think it’s already spring…

Learning to Swim

Brady riding a bike as a kid in the 80's.

Internalizing this today, I think about those moments spent treading water and I can’t help but compare them to my writing journey. I feel like I’m treading water, struggling just to stay above the surface. Yet, unlike those days in my youth, I have a lot more baggage now. Staying afloat also means fighting my demons.

Choosing the Right Title for your Book

What's in a name?

I intended to cover this topic in my last post, but I’ve been running into some issues with Cornerstone lately and it looks like most of the section I wrote didn’t end up going live. So, instead of crying over words that have slipped into the ether, I decided I’d just write another post to cover my recent decision to change the titles of my upcoming books. For those of you who’ve been following along, I was going to release the first book (or novella, depending on the length it finishes out at) in the Chlorophyllium Collection here pretty soon. The title of that work was Distant Worlds, with the following entry in the series titled as Final Hope. Recently, … Read More

April Writing Update – Distant Worlds

Distant Worlds - a novella by R. Brady Frost

Why do writers write? Better yet, why do aspiring writers fail to write? And if you really want to push the barrier, why is it that so many people think writing a book is a simple endeavor, something they might do someday if they ever feel like wasting a massive chunk of time? Oh, hell. Let’s just get it out there! What ever possessed me with this idea that I wanted to be a writer? I’m a failure. A flop. A complete and utter wannabe. I’m still here. This update actually started out as post on a private Facebook group I started for other writers, but the more I wrote the more I realized that it was much better suited … Read More
