Should we keep writing ideas written down?

I have my own stash of writing ideas hidden away, but it's like I'm storing them for nothing. I don't even think I've looked at my journal ideas for over a year now. I check the ones on Pinterest every once in a while, but sometimes that's even is rare. It's like I find all … Continue reading Should we keep writing ideas written down?

Their foot taps at a hundred beats per minute while their mind … Continue reading What to do if your writing/art frustrates you

As a blogger, or even as a writer, do you take a step back and reevaluate past blog series? Recently, I went through every book review that I've made on this site. One, I didn't think there'd be so many. (Sooo many tabs.) Two, I fixed some formatting mistakes. Three, I also rearranged my review … Continue reading Reevaluate it all

It’s THAT time of year again

Writers are magical

Even in a room full of editors, I was an incognito writer. It's easy to tell a writer from anything else. We think a bit...differently. Our minds stretch in directions that no one else can see.

What if writers - the creators of many worlds - were immortal? Would we finally run out of ideas? Would we finally run into the possibility of every love story ever?
