The Importance of Alpha Reading

When I write things, I'll write a first draft and then hide it away. It's something I think I've learned from Stephen King, from his book 'On Writing' (though I'm pretty sure I used to do this before I read that book). I do this for two simple reasons: Firstly, I like to work on... Continue Reading →

Self-Help for Writers & Book Review: GMC: Goal, Motivation and Conflict by Debra Dixon

First of all: Great book. I haven't read many of these how-to-write books but this is one of my favorites. It's short and to the point, discussing the what, why, how of GMC: Goal, Motivation and Conflict. It's all you need to tell a good story, it's what going to make your characters come alive...

NaNoWriMo Update & Doing New Things!

Luckily, I've still been... Continue Reading →

I love it not only to find cool books, meet new people, and talk about the books we love, but also because it's a great place to brainstorm with like-minded people. One thing we talked about a little while ago was working... Continue Reading →

Taking Time To Read

Recently, I was forced to take some time off from writing due to having to work away for a couple of weeks. I mean, I could probably dragged my laptop with me through the wilderness, but it was just too much hassle, so I decided to consider it a well deserved break. Instead, I loaded... Continue Reading →

Getting Into A Habit

If you've followed my latest posts, you might have noticed that I've changed up how I both write and edit. I do both more regularly now, trying to do a little bit every day. I used to set aside evenings, several hours for every session where I would sit down and write, and I realized... Continue Reading →
