Making Use of Technology On-The-Go

I was browsing in the App Store, looking for some new apps to download. I found a blog app “Blogo” that can connect with my website and let me post from my phone. I knew how to do it the long way—logging into my website and editing the page or post from the dashboard—but the […]


"Turtle" by Brad Montgomery

Turtles can be Cute as Bunnies

I feel like getting this first book to the finish line is a very slow and steady race. Technically, I’m not racing against anyone but my own goal to get the book published by the end of this year. I got many things set up for it already. The Amazon Kindle Digital Publishing account. Kobo […]


Writing and Revising and Critiquing…Oh My

Just wanted to write a quick update. I’m getting back into the swing of things. All the drama with the car and my phone and my computer (I don’t know if I mentioned that I was trying to upgrade my SSD aka hard drive to a larger size but that was a colossal mess!) didn’t […]


Lost Motivation Because of an Accident

When You Lose Your Motivation

All last week, I didn’t write one word for my second book. You might ask, “What happened? Is it writer’s block?” Some of it can be attributed to writer’s block. Trying to write a story that happens simultaneously with the first book takes a lot of thought to ensure that you write what was happening […]


Why Don’t They Tell You About This in School?

If high school English taught the basics of story writing, I’m pretty sure I would have enjoyed reading all the mandatory novels I dreaded every year—and I’m pretty sure my first manuscript would not look like Frankenstein. My favourite subjects in school were (and still are) science and math. I never liked English, except the […]

Story writing is like weaving a web

My Tired Eyes

Critiques, Beta Reading, and Editing

I am currently going through my whole manuscript, polishing it again for the billionth time. Hoping to achieve a mirror-like finish 🙂 In the middle of fixing up Scent of Attraction, I’m also critiquing works, beta swapping, starting book 2, drafting a synopsis, drafting a query letter, pitching (not the baseball kind), and living the […]


How To Publish?

Now that I’m finished my manuscript, I’m in the early stages of self-editing my work. With NaNoWriMo, I just wrote and didn’t go over the previous chapters. I found that it slowed down the writing process because I would end up rewriting a chapter over and over again and only add a few hundred words […]

What next

Gaming the System series

Gaming The System Series Review

When I saw this series suggested by an author I read, I thought I’d give it a try. The premise sounded interesting and with Amazon, you can sample the first chapter and a bit for free. Normally, I don’t like reading new adult romance novels and I’m also not fond of the first person POV. […]


What’s Your Writing Inspiration?

Finally designed the bare bones of this website to get it up and running but now I’ve lost that momentum from NaNoWriMo. I was hoping to start the outline for the next book in the series and get the critiques in for some overdue chapters from my Scribophile friends, but I only got to the […]

What's your writing inspiration?

NaNoWriMo

Thank You #NaNoWriMo 1

Thanks to NaNoWriMo, I finished the first draft of my WIP, Scent of Attraction. Before I discovered NaNoWriMo, my novel was at a standstill, just waiting on my computer—and in my head—to be completed. I figured, what is a better way to add 50,000 words to my novel, than to be motivated with a 2,000 […]
