Sandra was a decidedly average High-School student, with a perfectly reasonable fear of the recently-outed vampires living among them. And then her mom went missing. Desperate to find her mother before her sister is taken away from her, Sandra ventures into the world of the undead and gets a whole lot more than she bargained … Continue reading Don’t Go Chasing Vampires
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!
"At night, the streets are empty.
NOTE: sorry this post is late! Apparently I set the scheduled posting settings wrong. We are almost 1 week into Camp NaNo (which, for those who don't know, is a more flexible version of NaNoWriMo. Click the links for more information) which means, given my goal of 30,000 words, I should've written 5,000 by now. … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Camp NaNoWriMo
I honestly can't be upset about this week... but I know I did a bad thing. Lets start at the beginning though. I got hit with some intense nostalgia cravings this week; see, when I started writing I joined Booksie, a writer community / website that predates Wattpad (I think?). I loved it, and I … Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Two steps forward, One step back
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
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
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
