Putting My 8 Years of Social Marketing To Good Use

In addition to being a writer, I have worked in social media marketing and community management for the last eight years.

Viewing myself as a “brand” has been a hard thing … Read More Putting My 8 Years of Social Marketing To Good Use

2020 In Review and My Goals For 2021

At the beginning of 2020, I was working a job that I hated. On my down time, which was more down than up, I would write parts of my story that I had been kicking around in my head for over ten years. Like always, I would start and stop. I would write random scenes with no real direction, and for some inconceivable reason, … Read More 2020 In Review and My Goals For 2021

Work-In-Progress Questions Answered.

The one thing I can 100% say benefited from this lockdown was my ability to speak to people in the writing community online. I never used to comment or engage with people on social media, which is ironic because it is actually my day job to do that. Maybe after doing it all day for one brand, I was just unknowingly too burnt out … Read More Work-In-Progress Questions Answered.

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!

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!
