My Top Writing Tip

This post was originally shared as a guest post on the lovely Brooklyn’s blog, Five Shekels. Thanks so much, Brooklyn! I’ve been a writer since I first learned to form letters.

What I Wish I Knew As a Teen Writer // My Advice to Young Aspiring Authors, #4

This was previously posted over at Shelf Control. Thanks so much, Jaybird! As a teenager, my dream was to independently publish my first novel at eighteen (or earlier—but eighteen was the maximum).

Beautiful heroine, handsome hero, predictable romance, happy-ever-after, villain-is-caught type of books. And yet… I also love the not-what-I-expected, bittersweet, realistic, unusual type of books too. There’s aContinue reading “My 5 Favourite Bookish Twists || Clichés & Twists 02”

My Writing Journey // My Advice to Young Aspiring Authors, #1

As a child, I took scenes and passages and descriptions from various books and move them into a story. I usually ended up with it unfinished, but at the time it pleased me very much. Then I began to write little stories—2 or 3 pages, probably less than 500 words. When I was about 10,Continue reading “My Writing Journey // My Advice to Young Aspiring Authors, #1”
