Writing Contest… No Winners?

So I must admit that I received way less entries than the last writing contest I hosted here on Writers BloK. In fact... there were no entries this time. Everyone's been a bit busy I guess, and I did have a few people tell me (both through Writers BloK and email) that they wanted to enter but…

Three Hours After Surgery

Wow. It's over. I'm back home, and I'm actually feeling great. I'm sitting on the couch with an emoji balloon suspended in the air beside me (from my Mom), a bottle of water and Panera mac&cheese on the end table, a card from my brother (and him himself sitting beside me, loudly slurping a slushi).…

Clichés: Pros and Cons

Clichés are a common thing that writers try to stay clear of- but what is it that makes them so bad? In this post, I'll be going over some pros and cons to help you decide to what extent you must avoid these reader-judged expressions and plotlines. Before I get onto the pros and cons,…

Close The Door

Have you ever wanted to write, but every time you sat down you somehow found an excuse to do something else? It's like mentally you thirst to spill your writer blood onto a blank paper, a vast stretch of white space without limitations except for those which you yourself create. You want to let the…
