Are You a Plotter or a Pantser?

This past year, I’ve realized that I’m a pantser when it comes to writing. It’s ironic, really, because I’m such a plotter in my regular, day-to-day life. I have a planner, which I schedule every Sunday with tasks for the upcoming week (including house chores and lunch ideas). Whenever I travel, I love to plan… Continue reading Are You a Plotter or a Pantser?

Happy National Book Lovers Day!

Today is #nationalbookloversday and I felt the urge to write a blog in honor of such a beautiful celebration. There are uncountable reasons why we #bibliophiles love books so much. And here are five of mine: 1). Books are the best teachers. Through books, I’ve learned about subjects I would’ve never learned otherwise (mostly science… Continue reading Happy National Book Lovers Day!

Writing is Hard

I've come to the conclusion, in the last couple of months, that writing a book with 100% seriousness and dedication is one of the hardest professional challenges a person can face. At least it has been for me. Not even graduate school was this hard (or maybe I'm forgetting my #gradschoolproblems). Anyway, I think part… Continue reading Writing is Hard

Writing Update

I've been so absent from here! So I figured I'd update you guys on how my WIP is going. Originally I'd planned to participate in Camp NaNoWriMo to work on another writing project I've been researching for the last few months. That, however, didn't turn out to be a good idea. I knew in my… Continue reading Writing Update

Morally Gray Characters

My favorite character from my current WIP is a morally gray one, and this is something I find fascinating since I usually have a soft spot for my main character. I realized that perhaps the main reason why I’m drawn to this character so much is because I feel a sort of relatedness to him… Continue reading Morally Gray Characters

Work in Progress Update

Hello, friends! I feel like I haven’t written a blog in ages. It’s been ten days! I do apologize, but my husband surprised me with a road trip to South Carolina to celebrate my 29th birthday—and it was also my brother’s wedding—so I’ve been a bit busy. But I’m back and ready to blog! This… Continue reading Work in Progress Update

Writing in Progress

This past week hasn’t been the greatest for writing. I wasn’t feeling well physically and we had a scare with our cat. So I sort of neglected my blog last week! However, I was still able to get about 50 pages of edits of my WIP. Although I’m behind on my schedule (not surprising), I’m… Continue reading Writing in Progress
