Writing Your Masterpiece: “Don’t Set the Scene. Live It. Experience It.”

“When I begin anew, I sometimes forget to challenge myself. I sometimes forget to exercise my abilities as a writer. I get comfortable in what I know I’m able to accomplish, and I lose sight of all that I could be doing to grow. Lately, as I’ve been assessing my progress I’ve come to realize […]

NaNoWriMo: Week 3 – It’s Crunch Time! 

Current Word Count: 30,433 “This year’s NaNoWriMo experience has so far taught me a lot about who I am as a writer and what I’m capable of accomplishing once I put my mind to it. My novel is most certainly a mess of a manuscript, but I’m enjoying the process so much, knowing that has begun […]

NaNoWriMo: Week 2 – Making Changes, Making Progress

“There are times when things just don’t go as planned. There are times when you’re fairly certain you’re going to get everything done at a certain time, but then life happens, and you’re just going to have to pick up where you left off. I am not where I want to be concerning my word […]

Poetry as an Art Form and the Dreaming Novelist

“I resonate more with an experience that has settled into my bones, and with that I’m able to tell a story. I’m able to paint a picture with my experiences as a backbone, I’m able to reinstate my understanding of what it means to be up late at night drowning under a wave of incomprehensible […]

I Realized Organization Isn’t a Fault of Mine, It’s a Lifestyle Choice

“I’ve always been the kind of person to fancy having a plan. Without structure, I feel as though I’m unable to get anything done. This particular post shines a light on a blogging schedule that I’ve stuck to for the entire month, and for that I am proud. I’m slowly learning just how important it […]

I Love Clichés Almost as Much as I Love a Good Plot Twist

“I am a complex reader, for I can never settle into a specific genre for too long. I start to crave something different, something that hasn’t been done before. Though, I appreciate a good cliché. I do like predictability when it is called for, because there are times when I want to give my readers the closure they deserve. I […]

Writing A Novel Is Hard: My Journey So Far

“It’s important to note your progress when taking on a task such as writing a book. I’ve always been the kind of person that was more comfortable with the idea versus the execution. However, as of late, I have been putting my time and effort into creating a novel that is exactly the way I want it to […]

“I’ll Do It Tomorrow,” You Said. Though, It Never Got Done

“If you’re anything like me, your will to get something done often surpasses what you actually do. I know how frustrating that can be, I also know how easy it is to put off what feels to be relatively unimportant at a given time. That is what needs to change. When I started to prioritize the […]

Noticing The Changes

“It is important to keep track of the changes we set out to make. It keeps us in check, and it reminds us not to make the same mistake twice.” I’ve changed.  When people ask me, what I’ve been up to as of recent, I hesitate to tell them that my life is currently at […]

Missing In Action: An Interesting Turn of Events

“Interestingly enough, a lot has changed.”  It was World Poetry Day a few hours ago, and the collection I’ve been working on is coming together rather nicely. I haven’t posted anything in quite a while, and that’s not because I felt that this wasn’t a place I could voice what I was feeling, but it was […]
