A congratulations for all

Congratulations! Whether you wrote 50,000 words or even 5,000 this NaNoWriMo season, you're a great writer. The best people push themselves further and that's exactly what NaNoWriMo helps with.

Being creatively exhausted

Having a writing goal can destroy a writer. Every writer has his or her own ideals of where he or she wants to be in the writing world. Some are fine just self publishing. Some never write for a paycheck. Others hope their novels spread hope or make it to the best seller’s list. But … Continue reading Being creatively exhausted

Your rejection

The first time I realized something is wrong with me– No. Hold up. Is that wrong of me to say that? When you break me into pieces for something I created can I– No. I’ll start over. Reset. Words on pages have always been my passion. No matter if I write it or not, it’s … Continue reading Your rejection

Am I writing too big?

Can people dream too big? Is it too much to want to change the world? Perhaps I thought of doing that too early on.  I loved every time I made someone smile as a kid. I wanted more of it. Craved it. Writing was my forte out of everything, so I decided to change the … Continue reading Am I writing too big?

After piles of rejection letters or people's critical advice, it's nice to be accepted every once in a while. Every writer needs to feel the appreciation for the wonderful creative pieces they have made. Last week, my flash fiction piece, "The Forgotten', has gotten accepted by Friday Flash Fiction. This makes me one step closer … Continue reading Proud Writer Moment

Journey to publish

The last day of class was usually the day everyone bolts out the door when possible, but us writers stayed in our seats instead. “I’m just gonna talk about some publishing things for people who are interested,” our teacher repeated. I always called him Turtle, because he’s old, wise, and talks so slow. “You're not … Continue reading Journey to publish

Stories in ourselves

Sometimes, as a writer, I feel like my life is more like a book.  I can picture the chapters ending with the cliffhanger of what Mom and I were going to do after the divorce. Or what I was gonna do when I was first offered drugs in high school. But sometimes my life is … Continue reading Stories in ourselves

Writing Nothing

Do you ever feel like you want to write, but can’t? You stare at the screen for ten minutes before you decide: “Well this isn’t going anywhere.” Perhaps you look up what other people wrote about online, but your mind says something along the lines of: “I can’t copy what she wrote because that’s wrong. … Continue reading Writing Nothing
