NaNoWriMo – What Is It & Why Should You Do It?

NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and according to the internet it is this: "An annual Internet-based creative writing project that takes place during the month of November. Participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript between November 1 and November 30." Basically, you try to write a novel in a month. It's a challenge,... Continue Reading →

People’s Opinions – The Motivation Killer

"You're really spending a lot of time with that writing?" I've wanted to write about this for a while now. It's been on my mind for ages and though it usually never bothers me at all, these little comments keep gnawing at me. So I'm warning you, this might end up being a Rant©, but... Continue Reading →

What I learned From Writing Short Stories – Rethinking My Approach to Fiction

Due to waiting for feedback on a novel, doing revisions and editing on others, and in general trying to hold off on starting too many big new projects (because I need to also publish them at some point), I've written a lot of short stories this year.

People talk about great opening lines and great first pages, and I... Continue Reading →

Why I Sometimes Don’t Like Prologues

Let me preface this by saying I always read a prologue, if it's there. I've realized that some people dislike them so much they'll just skip them altogether, and that's not where I'm at. If I'm reading a book, I read all parts of the book. Also, I don't mind them. There's nothing inherently bad... Continue Reading →

Reading Long Books and a Book Review of Stephen King’s ‘IT’

I finally did it! Took me two months, but I finally read 'IT'. It's weird, because I feel like I've known this story all my life. Or been aware of it at least. Even though I only started reading Stephen King a few years ago, it's somehow ingrained itself as the ultimate horror story in... Continue Reading →
