Creativity Coaching : David Duggins

Spotlight On David Duggins

Author, Creativity Coach, and Writing Mentor

David DugginsDave Duggins is an experienced, professionally published short story author. He's a writer, like you — in the trenches, bashing out pages, living and working as you do. He's the editor behind the colorful and melodramatic covers of Spacesuits and Sixguns, a contemporary pulp fiction magazine. And he's rounded out a 20-year career in the US Air Force, where he's spent the past 15 years learning effective mentoring and leadership techniques as only the military can teach them.

Nowadays Dave balances freelance work with a full-time job as a technical writer for a software company and blogs at, where you'll find plenty of writing encouragement and advice.

To this unique blend of practical skills add enthusiasm, a nurturing mentality, love of the craft, respect and admiration for its practitioners in all their many guises, and unrelenting positivity. All that's missing from the equation is you.
