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…

Character Corner

Here’s a little quiz I made for all of us characters. People think authors do all the work, but we do all the work and they get all the credit! Why do they get their names on the front of the book, but not the very beings that hold up the walls of the story?

Sorry, sorry. I tend to rant.

So anyway, take this quiz to find out what kind of character you are. In other words, how you move the plot along and effect the story. Enjoy!

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…

My Writing Life

The lack of posting is not due to laziness (me? lazy? No way), but to a very busy schedule. I thought I'd give you all an update on my writing, which I haven't gotten to do in a while. Some of you know that I finished a novella a month or two ago. It's a…

How I Write So Much

I've had people ask me how I write so much. Generally, I write around 2,000 words a day, but on a good writing day I can get up to 6,000. I try to write every day, which would make my average writing week 14,000 words. According to these numbers, that would mean that I write…

Writer Obstacles

Writing is something that I've never been able to walk away from, no matter how frustrating, disappointing and energy-draining it's been. When I can't decide what to write, I'm stuck in part of my project, or I just don't have the confidence, people tend to say, "Why don't you just take a break? Stop writing…
