Maybe that's a little premature. I've been on hiatus for like... A year? I've been creatively dead, to the point where I've questioned my entire future in writing, and it's been utterly heartbreaking. However, a few days off a certain medication, and I literally tossed and turned all night long before finally giving up at … Continue reading I’m back!
I've been questioning the title of Tiger's Eye. It was initially a title of convenience, something I could use to reference my book. I even like it for a while... but as the story progresses, I question it's accuracy and efficiency in representing the story. (Click here to read the blurb) It's something I've been … Continue reading Tiger’s Eye or Deadly Summonings
Microfiction is such a fascinating form of story telling. With a finite number of words, every syllable is vital. In my post Story Classifications, I discuss typical length of microfiction and the 6 word story. In reality, we see microfiction all the time. You see, microfiction is rarely (if ever?) a complete start-to-finish story - … Continue reading On Microfiction
Not to say that my writing is bad - no, I'm quite impressed sometimes when I reread something I've written, like damn, coulda read that in a real book. While there's always room for improvement, I'm not talking about that at all. I'm talking about how I haven't touched any of my stories at all this week. … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: I’m a bad writer
I haven't touched my writing this week. Haven't had time. No sir. There's a 50%-of-my-grade exam on Friday I've been studying for, so understandably I've been a little creatively-crippled. That's a lie actually. I've been dying to write all week - because apparently, that's just how I work. Only when I absolutely cannot let myself … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Exam Week
Well guys, I think I can officially say I'm everywhere. You can follow me on just about any preferred platform you have. Tonight I went about setting up all the expected media outlets across the net, so if you don't really use wordpress, you can keep up to date and track my posts from any … Continue reading Social Media Whore
I think one of my greatest struggles in writing is creating entirely unique characters - especially when it comes for supporting characters. My main characters aren't quite as big an issue; they have background and context that lends them their own unique traits and habits. However, I have noticed I can tend to lean towards … Continue reading Characterization and Diversity
(Apologies for this Wednesday's post being late! Apparently I didn't schedule it properly) This week ('weeks' being Wednesday to Wednesday) started out slow. Across the past two weeks I've read two books. It wasn't in the plans, but when I turned the last page of A Court Of Wings And Ruin by Sarah J. … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Reading and Revisiting
Here's an extract from my WIP Tiger's Eye, a little teaser to stir your interest. Please enjoy, share your thoughts, and be kind - it's still a first draft.
Hello and welcome to the first post in the series Work In Progress Wednesday; while hardly an original idea, I wanted to start including weekly updates on what I've been doing throughout the week. Hopefully it will be motivation to get shit done, and also serve as a chance to psychoanalyze why I'm not getting any … Continue reading WIP Wednesday
