I know it’s been a while since I posted on here, but that’s going to change. I’m planning on doing a post twice a week (maybe Tuesdays and Saturdays or something) starting today. As far as my NaNo-ing is going, I’m a bit behind, as you can see on my profile. But I’m not giving […]

Are you prepared? I’m sure not! But that’s okay. Tonight, at midnight, I’ll probably be asleep. I fully expect most of you to be staying up and waiting until 12:01 AM to start writing.

We’re all busy. That’s just how life works, right? Would you like to even get a few hundred more words written per day? It would add up to a chapter in a week or so, and a book in a few months. Without changing much of your schedule, you could have another (or your first) […]

I’m not going to be doing too many reviews on this blog (like the Twelve Dancing Princesses one), but I do read a lot so be sure to check out my goodreads page! (Note: I’m still using my real first name on goodreads, not my pen name so sorry for the confusion. I’m leaving it […]

Most authors/writers use these terms interchangeably but they actually mean completely different things. If you don’t know, here are the differences and why some people confuse them: Self Publishing This means that you are doing it yourself. You’re the only person involved with your book, except for hiring editors or cover designers. Whether you do […]
