Meet My WIP: Heroes of Nowhere

Hi! Here’s another story tour that nobody asked for! This is partly because I wanted to squeal about my story and partly because I don’t have another blog post idea. But let’s not think about that bit. *laughs sheepishly and hides* Here we go! Prepare to be fascinated *winks* and a little confused. Heroes ofContinue reading “Meet My WIP: Heroes of Nowhere”

2020 Bookworm Tag (Happy New Year!)

Naomi of NaomiandBooks (her post for this tag will be linked below — go check it out!) tagged me for this. She could not have picked a better time to do it, because I’m coming off staying up till one o’clock in the morning for New Year’s Eve. I don’t have the mental capacity toContinue reading “2020 Bookworm Tag (Happy New Year!)”

How to Cultivate Inspiration

No matter how much we love our stories and love writing, there will be times when we don’t feel like writing. When we don’t feel inspired. When our well of creativity runs dry. Sometimes the answer is to take a break — if possible, of course. Just chill and let yourself recharge. Other times, theContinue reading “How to Cultivate Inspiration”

Gift Ideas For The Writers In Your Life

The holidays have officially begun! That means the yearly struggle to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones has also begun. *Halfheartedly* Yaaaay… *Ahem* Anyway, I figured it was a good time to make a blog post with a couple of gift ideas for writers. Also, confidentially, it’s Thanksgiving week, and I’m writing thisContinue reading “Gift Ideas For The Writers In Your Life”

Cultivating a Writer’s Outlook

As writers, we’re constantly trying to improve our craft. We want to write better each day, and create better stories. One of the ways to do that is research. Another is practice. Yet another is learning to relate to the world like a writer, and, in my opinion, that is one of the most importantContinue reading “Cultivating a Writer’s Outlook”

Unsolicited NaNoWriMo Pep Talk

Well, it’s November. Which means the sane (haha, just kidding) among you are busy prepping for Christmas and Thanksgiving. It also means that some of you are in the thralls of NaNoWriMo. Or as I like to call it: writing hell. Can you tell I’M in the thralls of NaNoWriMo? Sorry, this hasn’t been veryContinue reading “Unsolicited NaNoWriMo Pep Talk”

Writerly Resources For Authors

With NaNoWrimo coming up, I figured a post like this might be helpful. Over the years, I’ve curated different writerly resources from conscientiously (*cough cough* read that as “obsessively”) researching the writing craft. So now I’m gonna share them. This is totally NOT because I didn’t feel like writing a full-on blog post this week.Continue reading “Writerly Resources For Authors”

My WIP: Family of Nobodies

Hi! So, here’s the story tour that literally none of you asked for. Okay, that’s not true — ONE person asked for it. She actually suggested this post, so thank you, my friend! I swear I do have original ideas for blog posts, but, first of all, I’m super lazy and, second of all, everyoneContinue reading “My WIP: Family of Nobodies”
