#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. The story is taking on a life of its own now and I’m excited to see how my characters […]

#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. You can find out more about it here. This week’s theme is:  Home What’s home to your MC? Is it a place? A person? An idea? 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 […]

#IWSG Aug 2018: #CampNaNoWriMo Wrap Up and the Benefits of Writing in the Morning

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:  Erika Beebe, Sandra Hoover,Susan Gourley, and Lee Lowery! I can’t really answer this month’s optional question about publishing pitfalls since I have no experience in that area, so I thought I’d talk about my Camp NaNoWriMo experience instead. If you’re not familiar with it, Camp NaNoWriMo is an extension of National Novel Writing Month in November (a challenge where participants aim to write 50,000 words in 30 days), but […]

After following the hashtag #ThursdayAesthetic on Twitter for a while, I’ve finally decided to take part.

This month’s co-hosts are: Nicki Elson, Juneta Key, Tamara Narayan, and Patricia Lynne. Today is the start of Camp NaNoWriMo-I’ve signed up and am ready to get some work done on my Sci-Fi/Fantasy crossover novel, tentatively titled Glasswalker. I’ve chosen a modest goal of 15000 words (500 a day) as I feel like that’s achievable right now. You can find my profile here if you’d like to look me up. I faced my fear of sharing […]


“No People, No War”, a Short Story for #NationalWritingDay

“No People, No War”, a Short Story for #NationalWritingDay

  I saw this simple four-word prompt a while ago on Creative Talents Unleashed and wanted to have a go at turning it into a short story. As it’s National Writing Day, what better time to exercise my writing muscle? I typed this on my lunch break today and haven’t had much time to polish it, so please be kind!   No People, No War “No people, no war,” he says simply, lunging for the activator. I catch his wrist just as he grabs it and squeeze it hard, causing the device to fly out of his hand and clatter […]
