It's been awhile since I've done a WIP Talk and that's probably because I haven't really been writing my WIP! Whoops! I've started to get back into it and I realized that my story's beginning is really stagnant. I'm not sure if it's because I'm used to the whole screenwriting ideology where the inciting has… Continue reading WIP Talk: Changing Story

Hi all, it's been a while since my last post. I have had a lot things that have happened in the past month and half. Some were exciting and some were sad. I realized I have posted something about mental health a while back and especially when it comes to self care and I… Continue reading Life and its many distractions
It's been awhile since I've written my last blog post and no, it's not because I've given up on my writing dream.

First off I'm going to say this: the sun is out!!
What goes in the first chapter? Setting. Introductions. Main character. Set up to story. Hinting at what could be the conflict. You know what else goes into the first chapter? First impressions. The first chapter is the chapter that tells the reader what the story is going to be like. Sometimes it's even the first… Continue reading The First Chapter

Everyone is rooting for each other to succeed and I couldn't be happier to be a included in such a big diverse group of writers. … Continue reading #WritingCommunity
I was going through other writers' blog posts on how to create a fictional town and a lot of the information was extremely vague so when it came time for me to start really working on the details of my new story's setting I was still lost.

I haven't been writing this week. I'm not entirely sure why, but at this very moment all creativity has left the building. I'm waiting for it to return. So, I've been taking my mind off the lack of writing by creating book covers for my anthology and working on my freelance contract jobs. Some of… Continue reading On Lack of Writing: What I’m Doing Instead
