To writers? To readers?

Do I write for writers or for the readers? The obvious answer would be for the readers, because their opinions are what I need. They're the ones who buy books, read books, and write the reviews. They're the ones who will get excited to see me if I write well. But writers are the ones … Continue reading To writers? To readers?

Common Writer Mistakes #1

"Common Writer Mistakes" is a new series I'm starting where I talk through some common mistakes that I see writers (even myself) make. It may not be one that you specifically do, but this is more to make you aware of them. If you have any ideas of how to avoid some that I didn't … Continue reading Common Writer Mistakes #1

Dear Readers

Dear Readers, Don’t think the fantasy world in my manuscript is anything like Earth. I wrote the novel to escape Earth, not to be trapped by its walls.

A different kind of story

I don't know about you, but I always like different kinds of stories. Not the same love stories that repeat on the radio, movies, and books. But rather stories that you can't quite describe by saying, "Oh! This story's like my other favorite show." It has a bit of uniqueness that is hard to describe. … Continue reading A different kind of story

Art of skimming: a skeptical bliss

Lately with my busy schedule, I've perfected a new art form: skimming. I didn't mean to. I open a book with the intent to read every single word and get the most out of it. But sometimes I'm there for the story plot rather than the writing. The words on the page aren't as smooth … Continue reading Art of skimming: a skeptical bliss

Anyways: IRON MAN: A BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD To Be or Not To Be: A Chooseable-Path Adventure is a book I always needed throughout school. … Continue reading Marvel Avengers Book Tag!

Small accomplishments

It's good to appreciate the small accomplishments in life. For example, I just finished copyediting my first novel for a company. I hope everything goes well. I enjoyed working on the story.   What small accomplishments have y'all completed? It can never be too small.

Book review – To Be or Not To Be: A Chooseable-Path Adventure (Spoiler Free)

“This was a really amazing part of your adventure, Hamlet. You’re sure that, should you ever one day write a book about this story or perhaps a stage production, you’d DEFINITELY include this scene. Why, you’d have to be literally crazy to write a story where you journey to England, get attacked by pirates — … Continue reading Book review – To Be or Not To Be: A Chooseable-Path Adventure (Spoiler Free)

Different type of heroes

The older I get, the more I enjoy stories without that "fairytale" ending. Instead, they're more realistic. The "hero" becomes damaged by what he or she had to do. There's no simple life anymore. Everything has changed. Even if the overall is better, there's no perfect way to save everything. We ask this question all … Continue reading Different type of heroes
