Hai Beautiful! I’m back to my usual blogging schedule! I last spoke about my writing in this post titled: Announcing my 2020 NaNoWriMo Project. It was actually the last writing post before I disappeared from blogging in hopes to make more time for writing. In theory that was a great idea and in reality, it helped me to reduce stress, but did I write more? In my NaNo Announcement post, I spoke about starting my second WIP (which I am still […]

Writing & Insecurities (SW#66)

Dealing With Writing Insecurity 2020 SW Header - Writing & Insecurities (SW#66)

Hai Beautiful! Writing is scary! I wanted to write this post ever since I changed my mindset regarding my writing. Recently I stopped telling myself that “ignoring your WIP is not the same as giving up,” and “you can’t be scard of a writing project!” and started trying to understand the reason why I was indeed ‘giving up’. Once I’d identified what the hell I was so damn scared of, I was able to start working on ways to make the writing […]

Hai Beautiful! Okay, that title may be a few letters too long… It’s about time I update you all on my WIP progress, methinks.

If you are new or haven’t yet seen any previous writing posts, I am pleased to inform you that I am writing another ‘novel’! […]

Hai Beautiful! It’s drama time!! Let’s talk about writing withdrawals.

One had really helpful info (see the second article), and the other it turns out was about how to write withdrawal (and the symptoms) in your novel. As it turns out, if you place emphasis on certain syllables in the phrase ‘Writing Withdrawals’, then […]

Blogging Chat and being paid for blogging 2020 SW Header - Chatting About Blogging & Being Paid To Blog (SW#57)
