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 […]

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 […]

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.

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! I needed to get this off of my chest! It’s true, all of it. I have so many necklaces. I never used to care much about which one I wore, they all mean something to me anyway. The ones my boyfriend bought me, or the few I received on my various birthdays and that thing I bought online too; all tying to memories, like a ball on a string I can use to pull the memories up. I […]

cute otp writing prompts 26 blog header 1 - Cute OTP Story Prompts (SW#26)

Heyo Bookaholics! Beating the Writer’s Block! Inspired by tumblr text posts that are seen all over social networking sites and usually appear unwarranted and when you least expect them. They’re always so cute, angsty, and just overall adorable figments of the writer’s imagination. I know that reading other people’s OTP story prompts has helped me clear my writer’s block and inspired me to write, so I hope that my little mismatched ideas do the same. Feel free to use these […]
