A Little About Me

I like to do these posts now and then, especially for new followers who might not be aware of what I do outside this blog. And right now I’m caught up on my reviews so it seems like a fairly good time to ‘introduce’ myself, in a way. As well as reading a lot, andContinue reading “A Little About Me”

How To Write Your First Novel – Sophie King [Books]

I am a big lover of writing craft books. I read a lot of them, and I read a variety. Many have interesting tips, great advice, and can be written really well. Unfortunately, How to Write Your First Novel is not one of them. This book is for absolute, complete beginners. The problem, I think, isContinue reading “How To Write Your First Novel – Sophie King [Books]”

Ko-Fi!

Yep, I have finally started a Ko-Fi. I’m doing quite a lot at the moment, including this blog, beta-reading through Fiverr, and editing for/contributing to Dead Head Reviews. I’m also hoping to join the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, as well as perhaps taking a course or two through them to increase my editing skills,Continue reading “Ko-Fi!”

NaNoWriMo Is Here

Yep, we have reached that time of year some writers love, and some absolutely dread with every fibre of their being. A few times in the past, I’ve sworn off doing NaNoWriMo – “I don’t have time this year!” – but by the first, an idea has festered in my brain and demands to beContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Is Here”

Blogtober Day 3: Bookish Autumn Bucket List

Day One: My Spooky TBR Day Two: October Releases Anniek’s Library: Challenge List I don’t usually do bucket lists, mainly because if there is something I want to do, I don’t like setting a time limit on it. It makes me feel awful if it’s not completed, and I have been really busy lately. But,Continue reading “Blogtober Day 3: Bookish Autumn Bucket List”

Hi, How Can I Help You?

There have been a couple things I’ve being doing recently, which could be of help to some writers. Firstly, prior to publication. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big advocate of getting feedback on writing. I’ve written a post about it in the past, which can be found here, and I have a pageContinue reading “Hi, How Can I Help You?”

PROMPT #1: The Egg, Part 2 (Fantasy)

Part One Vetta lay before the fire, stretched out with her great head on her huge paws, looking every bit the house cat, if she weren’t ten times larger. Shadows flickered across her black and orange stripes, as Kas held up the egg. Eggs liked heat. So they kept this one as close to itContinue reading “PROMPT #1: The Egg, Part 2 (Fantasy)”

Writing Prompts

I have a stack of books and booklets with writing prompts in. I love them – always have. It’s great to mull on an idea, have a scene sparked off by just a line or image. A good writing prompt can lead to a great story. In a way, it’s always why I sometimes likeContinue reading “Writing Prompts”

Why My Current Favourite Book Is A Twitter Thread

I love Twitter, I really do. Some of my favourite books in recent years were ones I picked up because people were raving about them, or I followed the author on Twitter and became interested in their writing. If you’re looking for a community, guarantee you’ll find one on there, just by looking at hashtagsContinue reading “Why My Current Favourite Book Is A Twitter Thread”
