Honestly, I cannot believe that it is November already, but here we are, almost done with the year and writers all over the world are ready to start our newest creations. I began National Novel Writing Month last year as the outside English air turned crisp and chill with the smell of bonfires and pumpkin… Continue reading The Return of NaNoWriMo!
The sun rose over the houses and began to poke it's way through my blinds, jabbing me awake. I rolled over in an attempt to get comfy but no matter how hard I tried my limbs felt like they were being twisted in every direction. I lay back in my mound of pillows, staring at… Continue reading Dream Diary: Attack of The Flying Hippo’s
"We're all in the same boat" Being in your early 20's sucks. We can't help but feel so much is expected of us when it comes to having our lives together. We are in an awkward transition of adolescence. We are no longer considered teens yet we're not being considered adults yet either. You can't… Continue reading Life Plans: The Desire, The Disapline, and The Down-right Disasters
Wow. This is it! The final day of the 31 Days of Blogging Challenge has approached us and SOMEHOW I managed to keep to it! Several times I felt like I wanted to give up but when I think about how well it's gone I'm so happy I didn't. As you can see, I completely… Continue reading January Review: 31/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
Flash fiction competitions are everywhere. I see people posting about them on Twitter and many magazines offer the chance to tell a story in a set number of words.

I would start dating a guy and it was almost like a countdown of how long I could last before asking them about their opinions on getting… Continue reading What Does My Future Hold?: 26/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
One of the questions that always stumps me when talking to other writers is, "are you a planner or do you wing it?" Most of my writer friends are either one or the other. Some fully have colour coded notebooks filled with research and detailed page-by-page outlines of their entire book before they've even written… Continue reading Novel Planning: 18/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
Something has changed in the past few days. I don’t know whether it is the excitement of a new life, the flood of icy, salt oxygen that was pumped into my mind as I wondered the Scandinavian streets of Denmark and Sweden, or maybe, just maybe, this blogging challenge is starting to work like I hoped… Continue reading Where Words Begin: 12/31 Days of Blogging Challenge
I almost can't believe that it is New Years Eve tomorrow! Where did the time go? 2017 has been a full on rollercoaster ride; filled with twists and turns, slow rises and speeding downfalls, screaming and cheering. But we made it! I came into this year at a house party I was hosting in my final… Continue reading 2017 In Review!
Wooly scarfs and hats are making an appearance, frost and orange leaves litter the ground, nights are getting longer...and all around the globe, writers are uncurling their fingers, cracking their necks, and sipping their steaming mugs of tea as they settle down in front of their laptops for the magical month of November. Yes, ladies… Continue reading NaNoWriMo Prep and The Great First Novel Debate!
