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 […]

Lost Motivation Because of an Accident

Story writing is like weaving a web

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]

#NaNoWriMo Equals 50,000 Words in One Month?

Trying to find a way to complete my novel, I looked at all sorts of tips on the internet and in e-books. I came across a few tips that are helping me, and hopefully, I will get 50,000 words in one month. The one thing I discovered that will give me the motivation to get […]


Putting My Imagination to the Test

There are many romance novel related newsletters that pop up in my email—with permission, of course. It’s always good to have many resources available, from webpage design to editing to book marketing to stock images. I was lucky to see that Romance Novel Covers was having a sale on their stock images. Even before the […]

What Do I Do With My Time?

I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. However, I had no choice. While I was on maternity leave, the company that I was working for went bankrupt. I decided to look on the bright side. I’m not pressured to go to work as soon as my maternity leave ends. I get to […]


Book 1 Blurb

I’ve heard that if you have a little blurb summarizing what the book is about, it helps when you get writer’s block. It also helps to keep the book going in the right direction. Here’s a draft summary of what book 1: Scent of Attraction is about.   Charlotte Emery has a problem with her […]


Networking 101

I am taking an online course with RWA University on the RWA website. It’s taught by the wonderful Catherine Bybee. I love her books and I am delighted to see that she was teaching the course. I can’t wait to learn as much as I can to help boost my online presence. I’ve already started […]
