  • Timey Wimey!

    I came across this article about a parallel universe where time goes backwards. There have been articles disproving this, but as a fantasist, it inspired me.  Backwards in time… WTF? But isn’t that cool? Imagine trying to write a story set in this world. Everyone is basically Benjamin Button. Everyone is what? A son before […]

  • One with Nature!

    I saw a moorhen today. Sounds silly maybe, but I do love a little nature. I am a Taurus, an Earth sign, and for all that I’m sceptical of what that means, I know I feel nature all around me. I love it. Click here for a sort of poem about it. Enjoy…

  • Besties, Frenemies, or Nemeses?

    I tried to make this writing-related, but honestly, it’s all about my new kitten. Imagine I’m talking about introducing two unpredictable characters or something. Introductions are always important.  Introducing Tinkerbell… I’ve had this little kitty for a couple of weeks now. She was desperately looking for a home after being found on the street. I […]

  • Another Level!!!

    I rode a chocobo. As usual, this doesn’t feel obviously writing-related. But it is. It’s an extension of Fantastic Inspiration and Where to Find it! that I wrote back in December.   For those of you who don’t know, a chocobo is a large bird from Final Fantasy, and characters can ride one at specific points […]

  • Random Thought about Cats and Dogs!

    Have you ever noticed how different the various breeds of dogs are compared to the various breeds of cats?  What does this have to do with writing, you ask?  Many pets, especially felines and canines, are in our everyday lives. So it makes sense they’d be in books too. But can you write any animal […]

  • Spring Clean your Writing!

    It’s that time of year when many of us clear out things we haven’t used for a while and spruce up the place. Why not do the same with your writing?  The recent coronavirus outbreak has forced many of us into quarantine. Some are holding up better than others depending on personal circumstances, but you’re […]

  • Gifts in the Pages!

    As a writer, I leave many pieces of myself in my work. It’s what connects me to my writing as an expression of myself rather than writing to a formula. As a reader, I like to find pieces of authors in books. It makes it far more personal if I believe writers leave these as […]

  • Zombie Apocalypse!

    I started writing this silly Zombie apocalypse based on the Covid-19 pandemic going around right now. For anyone who doesn’t know, I live in Spain and am on national mandatory quarantine for cornovirus. Yeah, it’s crazy and probably going to have serious consequences. But I’m a silver linings kinda girl and turned it into something […]

  • Balancing Act!!!

    Like everything in life, balance is key. But it’s also subjective, so finding a balance between your own writing and critiquing others’ can be a case of trial and error. I’m on an online critiquing website, one I’ve had some ups and downs on but that I’ve also learned a lot from and refuse to […]

  • Signatures!!!

    No, I’m not talking about signing my name when (if) I become a famous author 😬. I’m talking about making your mark in your own work. Those little things that mean something to you personally that pop up in your novels or short pieces. I have a few things.  As I mentioned in my Multiple […]
