Heyo Bookaholics! I love my friends!

This weekend (inclusive of Friday) has been an amazing one. I have seen my friends three days in a row and my productivity has been insane! Friday 16th August (Dinner) The YA Room (@theyaroom on Twitter & […]

Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

Thoughts on Chapter Lengths 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

Heyo Bookaholics! Oh hi. This is not another existential crisis! As you’ve most likely derived from the title, I will be talking about chapter lengths in novels. It’s not something people consciously think about because in every novel the lengths are different. For example, Fantasy novels are sometimes split into ‘parts’ with chapters within them to denote the start of another significant event in the storyline, and other novels just have chapters. I once read a novel where most of […]

Heyo Bookaholics! I actually got writing done *pat’s self on the back*! It’s that time of the month again where the crew gets together for brunch at Mr. Tulk in the CBD and try to write as many words as we can! I think I managed almost 500 words which is a nice round number to end the week on. My Morning… I finished my placement yesterday and was having a smol sleep in so I didn’t set an alarm, […]

Meet The Character – Jaz #Realise (SW#31)

Realise About The Character  Jaz 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday 1 - Meet The Character - Jaz  #Realise (SW#31)

Heyo Bookaholics! Meet the character! I have been trying to write as much as I can lately. Working in my spare time between tasks at work, at night, in the morning, during lunch, etc. whenever I can, I try to write. I really love this character. Honestly, I think the fact that I went into the story trying to make her a character that everyone will hate, has actually enhanced her more and given me more to work with because […]

Realise 20K Story Snippet 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Hitting 20k on my WIP (#Realise) & Sharing a Snippet! (SW#30)

Heyo Bookaholics! Holy Sh*tballs I Finally Reached 20k! HAAAIIIII!!! I am in very very high spirits today 🙂 Who knew taking a day off of work after a stressful week would be just what the doctor ordered?! Well, I didn’t, but I feel amazing now. I hope you didn’t think that because I didn’t post yesterday that I was neglecting another Storytime because I’m not. I can’t do that when I knew that today was going to be the day […]

Heyo Bookaholics! Sometimes the story plans itself! Realise. If you follow me on social media, you would have seen me hashtag that word in my stories, and sometimes in photo captions. In case you don’t, Realise is the name of the novel that I am writing! You can read more about the story’s origin in various Nanowrimo-themed posts on this blog as linked below: Nanowrimo 2018 – In which I talk about Nano 2018, why I chose to write this […]

Heyo Bookaholics! The best day of every month! I haven’t had much time to write recently and to top it all off, I’ve been stuck at a single roadblock in my story. That was until Friday afternoon! Friday afternoon I somehow managed to fully outline my novel #REALISE, and on Saturday morning while I waited fifteen minutes for the train, I finalised my first chapter! This is super exciting for me as I’ve been struggling so hard to perfect the […]

It’s A Novel Race!

its a novel race 2019 header - It's A Novel Race!

Heyo Bookaholics! I started another project! *sigh* So, there’s this thing that happens where I get an amazing idea; get hung up on that idea, and kinda have to roll with it. For some reason, I cannot stick to one task at a time and I end up taking on multiple projects – writing and the like – at the same time. Since I am also horrible with keeping up with “Blog Series’” or remembering to update anything ever (see […]

Books Set In The Future: Talking About My WIP ‘THE INVERSION’!

Heyo Bookaholics! Futuristic Apocolypse! Not all books set in the future have to involve aliens and space travel. The future could be 30 years from now in my expected lifetime where the world is falling apart. Maybe something happens and we don’t even get to space. Then all this science fiction will be just that. Fiction. Space will be nothing without us to admire it. Too morbid? That’s okay, this post won’t be an existential crisis; I save those for […]
