How I Always Stay “In the Zone” as a Fantasy/Sci-Fi Writer

As a writer, I make my best work when I am absolutely saturated in content. I need to be in a mood, in a feeling, in the right state of mind. If I am consistently in that place, I can always come up with ideas! I am not one of those writers who can sit down for just a few minutes before going out … Read More How I Always Stay “In the Zone” as a Fantasy/Sci-Fi Writer

Houses for Fairies

I had never written anything short before so I decided to dive in and do a 500-word contest based on a prompt. I finished it, I was so excited to submit, and then it turns out the contest is only twice a year and they didn’t update the website! So here it is, my first piece of flash fiction, which I also published it … Read More Houses for Fairies

An intro to my books.

So what is this world I’m building? I love being held in suspense. I love cliffhangers, I love ambiguity, and boy howdy, do I love foreshadowing.

Hello! Quarantine, am I right? It’s a very strange thing. I haven’t left my house for anything other than something absolutely necessary in almost three months.

NaNoWriMo is over! What now?

NaNoWriMo has officially ended and now I have to answer the question; did I “finish” National Novel Writing Month? If you aren’t competing and are just following the guidelines to work on your own material, then the goal of NaNoWriMo is to come out of it with a 50,000 word manuscript. That means you have to hit at least 1670 words a day if … Read More NaNoWriMo is over! What now?

NaNoWriMo Check-In!

It’s a little over halfway through November and on top of it being NaNoWriMo, my job kicked it into high gear with the announcement of an expansion, I practice Krav Maga three times a week, take dance lessons, and drum lessons! Needless to say, NaNoWriMo has been a hard but incredibly enjoyable task. Twenty-two days in I’ve written 14,000 words. Ideally I would have … Read More NaNoWriMo Check-In!
