#IWSG Sept 2018: Writing about major life events

It’s time for another Insecure Writer’s Support Group post to boost my confidence and encourage myself to engage with the writing community. The IWSG post on the first Wednesday of every month. This month’s co-hosts are:   Dolorah @ Book Lover,Christopher D. Votey, Tanya Miranda, and Chemist Ken! This month I’ve been steadily working through the first draft of my WiP. It’s frustrating that I don’t have more time to work on it, but I know I’ll get their eventually so I’m trying to write little and often.

#ThursdayAesthetic (3): Home

#ThursdayAesthetic (3): Home

It’s time for another #ThursdayAesthetic for my current WiP, which I’ve nicknamed Crossover, as not only does it involve crossing dimensions, but it’s also a genre mashup of sci-fi and fantasy. #ThursdayAesthetic is a weekly meme started by science-fiction and fantasy author Jessica James.

I actually did the perfect aesthetic for this last week when the theme was dreams, as Nova’s dream is to find somewhere that she belongs. She doesn’t really have any place she can call home […]
