I love being a writer. Why you ask? There are many reasons... I love that writers think differently to other people. We see the world in a unique way and we have an ability to create, turn a blank page into something beautiful. Our minds are never empty, we're always thinking in rhymes and metaphors… Continue reading I Love Being A Writer
I WON NaNoWriMo! In September, I decided that 2014 would be the perfect year to take part in a writing challenge. I had plenty of free time and I was starting to wonder when my first novel would actually get written. NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, hundreds and thousands of writers from across… Continue reading My NaNoWriMo Journey
I've decided that this year is the year that I will not only attempt but win NANOWRIMO. Now if you don't know what NANOWRIMO stands for, I will tell you. It stands for - National Novel Writing Month. That's right, I'm going to attempt to write an entire novel.... in a month! That's impossible, you're… Continue reading New Ideas & NANOWRIMO
For a while now I have been leaving my novel alone, not intentionally of course. I've been avoiding writing all together. I don't know why I do it. I love to write. I feel better when I write. I ignore my compulsion to write. Why do I depriving myself of it? I've figured something out… Continue reading The Muse Has Returned
I have been extremely busy over the past couple of weeks so forgive me for not updating my blog as often as I should be doing. I have been juggling university work with my two new writing jobs.

Poetry is freedom. Poetry is emotion. Poetry will always be whatever you choose for it to be. It is hard to define poetry because poetry can be anything you want it to be. It can be one word placed in the middle of a page. It can be fifteen pages long if you want it… Continue reading Poetry Is
I think this is the most confident I have ever felt about my writing. I currently have 8,000 words of my first novel drafted, it doesn't sound a lot compared to the 80,000 word mark I am hoping to achieve but for me it is a big accomplishment. I tend to bore easily with my… Continue reading Dream Big Or Don’t Dream At All.
So it's almost August and I wanted a lot more of my novel written than just 3,000 words. I'm a bit disappointed in myself for not sticking to my goal of at least 6,000 words by the end of July. However, I have been busy working at Female First and the days that I don't… Continue reading Alterations And Preparations
I woke up this morning with the ambition and motivation to write. I haven't had this feeling in a while so of course I acted on it and I am proud of my productivity today. I had so many ideas swirling around my mind but I needed to put pen to paper. (like I mentioned… Continue reading Good Riddance Writers Block!
I haven't been writing at all lately. I can't even blame my lack of writing on writers block because I'm not even trying to write anything. I think the problem is that I have far too many ideas but I never pursue any of them. I have my journal which is full of ideas for… Continue reading Pen To Paper
