Summoning A Daemon To Write My Novel For Me… (SW#38)

Summoning a Daemon to Write my WIP Realise 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Summoning A Daemon To Write My Novel For Me... (SW#38)

Heyo Bookaholics! Here’s to writing! I might as well change this series name to Writing Wednesday because, by this point, all I ever talk about is my current WIP, Realise and my multiple existential crises, but mostly Realise. So last week I spoke about my big goals to maybe finish my current WIP #Realise by the start of NaNoWriMo. We all know it’s not happening because I’ve currently been up watching tik-toks for 2 hours with intentions to do homework when […]

Heyo Bookaholics! I’m the biggest optimist I know when it comes to writing… Hi, you must be new to my blog. Here on Jasper + Spice, I talk about books, organisation and my seriously ambitious writing process. Which if you think about it, is only ambitious for me because I have to put homework before everything else in my life. The writing process in question relates to my current WIP (work in process) titled #Realise. I have a slew of […]

Heyo Bookaholics! September has been THE BEST reading month thus far! I have so much to talk about today! I have left this post till Sunday on purpose. So much has happened this month that I didn’t even realise it was the end of September until I had an event scheduled on the 24th and became hyperaware of the time. I’ve done enough today to be happy with my progress, and certainly enough this month to make me proud of the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Heyo Bookaholics! Holy Sh*tballs I Finally Reached 20k! HAAAIIIII!!!

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 […]
