I’m having trouble writing again. I’ve been wasting time (in my view) by playing video games. I haven’t been productive. I don’t feel blocked per se. I can still write, but it’s mostly freewriting. I still have ideas, but no concrete movement you know? I haven’t an utter clue what’s wrong. My inclination is to […]
For as long as I can remember I have loved writing. I don’t remember exactly when the bug took hold but I pinpoint it to the early millennium when I was in the first throes of my pop music obsession and needed an outlet to deal with it. I don’t know why, but I decided […]
I have, for the first time in ages, finished a fiction piece. I attribute this to a change in attitude and also a reformulating of my brain shall we say? Also, I downloaded a trial version of Scrivener and I swear it’s like magic! I’m really proud of this story. My first few short stories […]

Cursed is the girl born to Freya She will provoke her mother’s wrath A woman as beautiful as she? Will be fated to walk a similar path.
I’ve been thinking about how to turn my love of romance novels and the love story in general and my need to explore the dark side of humanity into something that I, and hopefully others, would like to read. How would one go about doing that? I know that there is such a term as […]
What’s the difference between writing a novel and writing poetry? They both take practice. And okay yeah, writing a novel takes WAY more time.
Finishing the book seems to be a chore to me. I never expected writing a novel to be easy. In fact I put it off for the longest. But I kept working on this book. I am so close to finishing but it’s not fun at all. I like looking back and reading my work […]
