Getting Involved

When you’re starting to write your first book, you’re probably very lost. The indie author community is HUGE – literally – containing thousands of authors who self publish and do a lot of things on their own, but that’s nothing to worry about. Most of the authors I have come in contact with are rather […]

Quick Write

Sometimes taking a break from what you’re working on to do a quick writing sprint to work on something else gives your mind a break. I did that today and I loved it. Here’s what I wrote in about 20 minutes. I’m thinking the start of a new story! Tell me what you think then […]

Blog on Blog

Yes – my topic for today is about having a blog – while I’m on my blog. Makes sense, right? Well, I’ve recently started this blog and well, I honestly didn’t think that I would keep up with it since I have had so many in the past and well, let’s just say that I’ve […]

Minimizing Distractions

As we’re writing, there are many things that would pull you away from actually writing – I’m someone guilty of spending way more time on Facebook and on their games than writing or paying more attention to whatever is on netflix at the time. I’m so guilty of all of the above, but when you […]

Writing with Emotions

So many people have told me that they can’t write because something happens and their emotions take over and they just can’t – their boyfriend/girlfriend broke up with them, someone passed away, job promotion where they’re too excited, or they get distracted. If you’re the last one, please wait until the next blog post is […]

Creating an Author Page/Blog

When I first started in the indie author community, I had no idea what I was doing. I was lost other than writing – something I knew that I loved. Well, there’s a question that haunts many people that are just starting out. “I’m not published, but should I create an author page/blog?” In my […]

Book Covers

So for me, my book covers are always something that I think reflects the story well, whether it has the main characters or shows an event that happened in the story. The thing is to make something that will stand out – something that will make someone in a bookstore pause to at least glance […]

Opinions Needed

So, I kind of write while I’m at work, keeping the gears in my head turning and I came up with close to 700 words of a new idea. The only thing is that it’s completely out of the box to what I’m use to – that being Fantasy and Romance – and this one […]

Taking a Break

So, you know those people who pour their life into their writing to the point where that’s about all they think about? Yeah? Well, I’m usually one of them. IF I had friends that lived outside of my little laptop here, they would call me up and be all, “Hey, want to go out and […]

I’m Drawing a Blank…

So, everyone has those times where they sit down to write and they’re drawing a blank. I know I have them – writer’s block, right? What is writer’s block? Writer’s block is defined as something writers and artists fear as it’s a blockage of someone’s creativity, but why do we fear it so much? Why […]

Quick Thinking

So, I’ve been working on Goddess Becoming for about two months now and the original plan was to have the main part of the book be a prophecy about the MC overtaking the villain and that would be the villain’s downfall. BUT after two months, I still haven’t written the damn prophecy. Why? Because it’s […]
