Powerful Language

I haven't done many posts on the art of writing itself recently, so I decided to post about something I genuinely love about writing: Portraying emotions through fantasy characters, and in doing so connect to the reader so they can live the emotions through said characters. It's magical, isn't it? Being able to put words…

Destroying Writers Block

Sometimes, Writers Block is really bad. Notice that I capitalized it? That's because it's a monster of entirely its own species. It feeds on writer's weaknesses and keeps their dreams from becoming a reality. But who is the culprit? If Writers Block isn't a physical being, what is it? It's you. Maybe you're bored with a…

Looking Rejection In The Face

Let's face it, writing is a hobby that makes us naturally susceptible to rejection.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Hey everybody! I've been trying to think of something to post about for a few days now, but couldn't get myself to. I've had a lot on my mind with my surgery less than two days away (I won't be able to walk for two weeks, and then I'll need crutches... oh joy). Other than the…

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…
