Writers are always strange people. Perhaps we're not even people at all. Not many people - in the whole world - can create an entire world from nothing. Something as small as a 65 character text could turn into a 70,000 novel without even trying. But are we human if we're gods of our own … Continue reading Are we human?
Sometimes I wonder if my taste in literature discredits me for an English major and/or a writer. The more I dive into the writing world, the more I realize I don't fit in some areas. I love writing and editing. I can discuss creative work for days. However, I don't like old literature too much. … Continue reading What could discredit me
I stopped reading when I was about six. That’s strange to say, right? Here I am: a storyteller, a writer. But I also have a tough past with reading. Around first grade, I got tired of being tested for reading. I hated reading something just to get brought hard comprehension questions. I didn’t understand any … Continue reading What book saved me?
Us writers explore the Internet during our many writing breaks. We usually end up starting chats or finding funny photos or looking up the specific type of the metal people used in the mid 1800s and how dangerous it could be. Personally, I love finding writing photos on Pinterest. I decided to share some of … Continue reading Writing photos
Other creative works can be frustrating. I've been shown hundreds of different books, movies, music, musicals, and more. But the first thing I do is criticize them every time. I don't mean to though. I always look forward into diving into a new creative world. I want to see something that will blow my mind … Continue reading Me VS Other Creative Projects
Happy One Year! About a year ago today (June 18th to be exact), I started writing this blog. It has grown to become something I didn’t even believe possible with blog awards, small publications, and hundreds of followers. I want to thank everyone that follows me on here. It’s great to write, but it’s even … Continue reading One Year Anniversary
A part of me always wonders what kind of writer I'll be. Will I be the one only some people remember? I can have my books taught in classrooms. Or be the one everyone gets obsessed with for a bit. Some can despise my work because of its popularity. My stories can change people and let … Continue reading What kind of writer…
Most times, I believe writing's the thing for me. I'm always a good critic of stories and love telling them no matter what. People's reactions to words are always interesting and compelling. But sometimes that changes. I'll get critiques that say I need to take a writing course cause I can't tell a story at … Continue reading Negative Critiques Destroy
Sometimes there's only so much that editing can do to improve a story. After editing it over and over, it can seem as if the story isn't going anywhere. This has happened with my stories...if I mention that the story's older. With my newer stories, everyone's always enthusiastic about me editing them again. It's always … Continue reading Ideas for the worst?
Writing every day used to be an ideal, a goal. I thought that I must be getting somewhere if I improved my skill every day. I had to be. How else was I going to improve other than just writing more? I'd write even if it wasn't good writing. To practice was to get better … Continue reading Writing Every Day
