So it's only Wednesday and already I'm over uni despite it only being back three days. However, I did get a few rounds of editing done on Queen of Hearts before I had to return to my academic reality. If last year is anything to go by, I'm unlikely to do much more on the editing front … Continue reading The Mid-week Blues
How to Craft your Fantasy Voice.
Although long, this is definitely worth a read.
What’s in a name?
Once again, I am speaking to you from the past. Oooooo. I have exams at the moment and therefore blogging is most definitely secondary. Good thing I planned ahead. I've decided to start interspersing in some posts about world building, character development etc, based on things I've learnt along the way, to help you out … Continue reading What’s in a name?
Once again, it’s WIPpet Wednesday. Feel free to play along. The rules are simple: Every Wednesday (or on whatever Wednesday(s) during the month you chose to do so) post something from a current WIP, and share the link. The only stipulation is that your post coincides with the date in some fashion. For instance, today … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday.

The times when you are unsure how much to say (WIPpet edition)
It is Wednesday once more and time for a WIPpet. Join us if you dare. Today is the 8th and the excerpt is from the 8th chapter. A lot is revealed in this chapter which affects and alters the rest of the book so the excerpt I have provided is very edited. I don't want … Continue reading The times when you are unsure how much to say (WIPpet edition)
The final hurdle.
This is not a post where I tell you all the answers. In fact, it's not going to be a particularly interesting post. Nevertheless, the once piece of advice all writers receive a thousand fold is keep writing. So that's what I'm doing. Writing. Words, strung together in the hope that they will mean something … Continue reading The final hurdle.
WIPpet Wednesday is awesome. You can join. Unless you're a computer or an iguana. Visit this linky to join. Rules are easy-peasy: your submission has to reflect the date in someway. I could spell it out for you in detail like I've done here and here and here but I think you can work it … Continue reading WIPping it.
They say time flies when you're having fun. I don't always agree with this but in the case of my experiences with this blog, the sentiment rings true. A year has passed since I first ventured into the blogosphere with this post, outlining my intentions for the blog. As much as I like to think … Continue reading Happy Blogoversary
