I feel like I've been harping on about this quite a bit this past week but, to be honest, when you don't have anyone else advertising you kind of have to become your own annoying publicist. One of my short story series, Etta!, is finally available in paperback WORLDWIDE. It's a fun thing to think … Continue reading Paperback Writer…
Two Year Bookiversary!
You know me, I love a good milestone celebration. This one, in particular, is close to my bitter old heart; the 2 year anniversary of my first self-published novella. It's kind of a bitter sweet celebration because I was so happy to publish this - despite a few spelling errors - but I had planned … Continue reading Two Year Bookiversary!
Summer Snail Mail
It's that time of year again; I don't think I've written any letters for over six months and I keep having that lil itch to pick up a well chosen pen, pick out some super cute stationary and start writing letters! Writing letters to folks is something I've always loved and I like how it's … Continue reading Summer Snail Mail
I realised recently I wanted to start blogging more about writing - something which may not really interest many people [I don't know? Let me know if you are interested in particular topics in the comments!] or be a popular thing to blog about but hey ho! Writing is my ultimate bread and butter thing … Continue reading Writing projects!
Pushing through creative blockages!
Today I wanted to take a step back from frivolous posts so I could address 'real' things. I've taken a step back from blogging and writing recently but not because I wanted to, it was more like I felt like a door had been slammed in my face. I was hit by a pretty big … Continue reading Pushing through creative blockages!
Avoiding Bad Sponsors!
It happens every now and then; I'll receive an email from a company asking if I'd like to review a product. Most of the time it's been a successful interaction (see here and here) and I've ended up trying some cool products. Other times… well, I'll start this off by saying 'always trust your gut'. … Continue reading Avoiding Bad Sponsors!
This is going to be a wordy blog and less pictures, which you're probably happy about because my photo taking has been terrible recently. I am, what we in the industry like to call 'shutter shy'. Wait, did I make up a cool term or is that a term for something else? I feel like … Continue reading Nanowrimo 2017
So you want to write a novel?
I can't believe I'm writing this but... it's almost November, which means it's almost time for National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo from here on in]. I talk about this every year and this year is no exception. NaNoWriMo is a big part of my life and has been for the past six years - this … Continue reading So you want to write a novel?
Making a wish
I feel like I'm always talking about writing on this blog but that's kind of my thing so let's go with it! I'm sure, if you've been following this blog for a while, you'll know my dream career is to be a full time writer. I don't necessarily believe I could earn a living wage … Continue reading Making a wish
New Stationary [& snail mail call]!
I'm a sucker for new stationary and once my office is actually done I'm excited to be able to store it all properly. Oh the small dreams we have! I recently purchased a couple of new sets to add to my collection and let me tell you, I love them! Typically they're from Paperchase but I'm always … Continue reading New Stationary [& snail mail call]!
