source. Hey, guys! I've been recently watching a lot of the TV show Lost (currently in one season with my family and another on my own--can be a tad disorienting, but very fun). While I fully plan to write a blog post (or posts) about my thoughts on the show (and especially its characters), I … Continue reading five things writers can learn from Lost.
Hello, all! Today I have an interview with author Kellyn Roth. While I've yet to read any of her novels (*sad face*), I've come to really admire Kellyn for her hard work and dedication to her writing/career as an author. Her newest novel--Ivy Introspective--was recently released into the world and, though it's the second in … Continue reading ‘ivy introspective’ book tour: interview with author Kellyn Roth
I saw this tag over on the blog Little Blossoms for Jesus and thought it looked fun. Currently, I have two WIPs (though I'm hoping that Flicker will soon 'graduate' from that category), so I'll be sharing snippets from both. The Rules: Open your WIP to the seventh page.Scroll past the seventh line.Copy the next … Continue reading the 777 writing challenge tag
Hello, blog readers! It's been a while, hasn't it? I want to get back to posting regularly - not sure it will happen, but I can always hope and plan, right? I don't have too many good ideas for blog posts right now so if there's a topic, movie, book, or TV show that you'd … Continue reading the never have I ever writing tag
*deep breaths* As you may or may not know, I've been working for over a year on my novel, Flicker (formerly called The Darkness is Past). Flicker is a Christian dystopian novel based on the life of the Apostle Paul (fuller blurb in a bit). This novel is just a smidgen over 100,000 words long, … Continue reading open call for beta readers!
The past few weeks, I've had to force myself to write. Getting words onto the page was (almost) literally painful - I can't even describe the sensation but it was awful. Trust me. At any other time, I might have stopped writing for a few days or weeks or whatever, but I'd just gotten edits back … Continue reading five ways to make writing more fun
NaNoWriMo is upon us (in less than two months!) and I couldn't be more excited. Last year was incredibly productive for me and while I don't expect magic to happen twice, I'm still looking forward to what this year's NaNo has in store for me + the writing community. After all, this year marks the … Continue reading nanowrimo: some pros and cons
I got a ton of responses from you guys, regarding the naming of a cat in my novel, The Darkness is Past. The book itself is nowhere near publication but I'm hoping that it'll be in print someday. (Someday soon-ish?) Anyway, there were a ton of great names submitted...but unfortunately, there can only be one … Continue reading announcing the winner of the ‘Name the Cat!’ contest
Last year, I posted this big rant about one of my indie book reviews being [kind of] censored. I'm not going to link to it because it turned into a mess, but I'm here today with another rant centered around an indie author. (Not naming her, fyi.) And it's worse? Earlier this year I had … Continue reading time for (another) rant
So, remember how I said I was going to do some kind of giveaway thing to celebrate reaching 400 followers? (402 now, by the way!) Well, I thought about it quite a bit and couldn't come up with a good giveaway prize that wasn't an Amazon gift card because you all have such varying tastes … Continue reading the ‘Name the Cat!’ contest
