I’m currently back in England visiting friends and family, so I’m taking a little break from blogging. Travelling and being around so many people for extended periods takes a lot out of me.
There will be no post on Sunday either but I’ll be back on Monday.
There will be a delay in replying to comments, but I always appreciate that you guys take the time to message me. I’ll reply when I get back home.
Today’s guest poster is the wonderful David Gouldthorpe, who discusses how he moved from fanfiction to original fiction. Enjoy 🙂
It’s the last Monday of the month so it’s time for a quick Round-Up of articles from other bloggers that I have enjoyed this month.
This is part of the series of blog articles called “A Writer’s Guide…”, check out this article by writer Tara Ross to being a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).
How many of you talk with confidence about your writing? Writers, in general, are often introverted and struggle to discuss their work. Not to mention, when we do, many of us find it hard to speak with confidence or pride.
Instead, we divert attention away or mumble something incoherently, or sometimes just blurt out bits about our writing and then collapse inwards as if we have no right to feel good about what we do.
So today we’re talking about confidence.
Today’s guest poster is the lovely Yvette Gorman, who shares with us the publishing debacle experience she went through with her first novel. Enjoy 🙂
I recently had a number of conversations with people on social media about “gaining exposure”. They informed me that didn’t consider gaining exposure yet as they didn’t have a book out.
Okay, so I’ve mentioned it before but I need to say it again for the cheap seats at the back, “you should still look at getting exposure before you are published!!”
This is part of the series of blog articles called “A Writer’s Guide…”, check out this article by writer Michaela Bush to being an Aide.
There is probably quite a bit of irony to the fact I’m writing about being efficient, while currently being my least-efficient-self.
I’m normally an efficient, organised person. However, since the last 4 months have been pretty rough, I lost my edge.
So this article is to remind myself about what I SHOULD be doing and to give all you readers out there who may struggle with productivity and efficiency, a little boost too 🙂
This week’s guest post is an interview with the lovely I. L. Cruz, author of A Smuggler’s Path. Enjoy!
