College + Writing Life Update

Hello everyone! I've been trying to post more often... I really have. I've been very busy (as is the usual excuse), so I haven't really gotten a good opportunity. I thought I'd hop on WordPress and give you all a quick update about my current writing endeavor, and a few other things that are going…

How to Organize Your Life: Tips From an Online College Student

As most of you know, I recently started taking online college classes with Herkimer County College. I've gotten a lot better at staying organized over the past month, and never miss a deadline. I decided to share some advice with those of you who need help managing your time, and making sure that you get…

Destroying Writers Block

Sometimes, Writers Block is really┬ábad. Notice that I capitalized it? That's because it's a monster of entirely its own species.

Roleplaying As Our Characters

Hi! My name is Flair, and I'm a half-human-half-Centri (A Centri is a type of... 'alien,' as you Earth folk call creatures from other galaxies). My author, Carynn, suggested that I write a post where book characters can communicate, helping their writers to better understand them. To start off, I'll tell you three things about…
