Meet my WIP Series!! // #MyJay

So, I’ve decided that since I will be releasing these books (Lord willing) somewhat soon, I should raise awareness about them… since I depend solely on readers to spread the word about them. ;D But first off, as a KDWC-er reminded me today, what is my WIP series? The Chronicles of Kalsyia Now, I’m notContinue reading “Meet my WIP Series!! // #MyJay”

Letters to my Past & Future Writer Self

  So once more I am stealing an idea from Jenna Terese, but in my defence she told me to do this, so. 😉   She encouraged us to write letters to our past and future writer selves. This is kinda just journaling, but maybe you’ll enjoy it anyways and be encouraged or inspired. ❤Continue reading “Letters to my Past & Future Writer Self”

Writing Blues // A Post From the Heart

I should be writing in my story.  I should be working on that blog tag I started.  I should be doing some of the things on my kite-tail-long to-do list. And I shouldn’t be writing a blog post right now when I’ve got so many other posts coming up. Probably no one will even payContinue reading “Writing Blues // A Post From the Heart”

A Letter to my Book “The Colour Blue”

If you’ve been around for a while, you remember when I wrote letters to my two other finished books: Chords, Broken, & The Colour Red. I stole this idea from Hailey Rose, who stole this from someone else. Today’s letter is addressed to my latest WIP, The Colour Blue. Dear Colour Blue, I think you were the hardest thingContinue reading “A Letter to my Book “The Colour Blue””

I’ve Learned

When I wrote Chords, I was convinced it was amazing and ready to be published. My alphas let me know it wasn’t. I was discouraged, disappointed, and angry. I tucked the story away and moved off to other stories. Then I suddenly decided to finish it. And then I got an idea for a shortContinue reading “I’ve Learned”

Why I No Longer Do NaNoWriMo + My Alternative

I have been participating in Camp NaNo & @NaNoWriMo for about 7 years now. I was an enthusiastic supporter of the organization, and I was always recommending it and gearing up for November. But on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, I deleted my NaNo account, unsubscribed from all their emails, & quit following their Instagram.  There areContinue reading “Why I No Longer Do NaNoWriMo + My Alternative”

My Thoughts on Writing Historical Fiction

A Disclaimer before you start: This might a slightly controversial blog post. These are 100% my opinions and I’m not trying to shove them down anyone’s throat or say that you are wholly mistaken for taking the opposite view.

Never Have I Ever Tag (Writer’s Edition)

And we have an unexpected post because I saw this tag on Mikayla’s blog some time ago and thought it was super fun, so I borrowed it. And then Ryana Lynn tagged me a couple days later. xP So here goes—things I have or have not done as a writer.  Never have I ever… …started a novelContinue reading “Never Have I Ever Tag (Writer’s Edition)”

A Letter to my Book "Broken"

I am stealing this idea from Hailey Rose (who stole this from someone else lol).  Dear Broken,  You were so totally not supposed to happen. I was supposed to be listening to my Scottish folk songs playlist and spin stories about the songs in my head. We were driving home from church one Sunday night at theContinue reading “A Letter to my Book "Broken"”

Sharing My Early Writings: 2 Poems & 1 Story // 12 Days of Christmas Blog Party

Hi, friends. 🙂 Happy five-days-’till-Christmas. 🙂  Today I thought I’d share some of my early writings. Partly as an encouragement to young authors (see how far I’ve come) and partly because… I still like that poem, and the story is apparently the only Christmas short story I have besides An Old-Time Christmas… need to changeContinue reading “Sharing My Early Writings: 2 Poems & 1 Story // 12 Days of Christmas Blog Party”

NaNo 2019: Highlights + What I Learned

Happy December, friends. ❤ Remember this post, all about my NaNo plans? Well, here’s the update. Brace yourselves… this is rambly and excited. XD I was at almost 26k when NaNo began.

My 5 Favourite Bookish Twists || Clichés & Twists 02

Today is part two of my clichés & twists series. Be sure to read part one if you haven’t yet. As I stated last week, I like the “perfect” things. 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

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”
