“Be careful, don’t die.” “Great. Now we’re all bloody inspired.”

As you may have heard, I finally finished the Maze Runner trilogy. (I haven't read the prequels...may not for a while. They're not piquing my interest much) I read the first book back in high school, loved it, but then I started to read The Scorch Trials and got creeped out by the head-eating-metal-blob-thingy, and … Continue reading “Be careful, don’t die.” “Great. Now we’re all bloody inspired.”

June Wrap Up (didn’t we just do this with May???)

Didn't I JUST do my May wrap up? And yet, May seems like kinda a long time ago, and June felt like a normalish length month. (oh hey, my laptop is still moving slow and the words are taking f o r e v e r to show up. Yay *eyes light on fire*) So, … Continue reading June Wrap Up (didn’t we just do this with May???)

Writing Routines: the Writer, the Myth, the Legend (good luck trying to follow my train of thought here)

Writing bloggers: Here is how I write a novel: One, I take the idea and put it in a special box. Two, I start working on character profiles. Three - Me: I AM CHAOS. The more I write and edit, the more I find I rarely do something the same way twice. The only thing … Continue reading Writing Routines: the Writer, the Myth, the Legend (good luck trying to follow my train of thought here)

Bing, Bang, Boom (thoughts about fight scenes)

("Bonds by bullets, bullets kill Nazis. Bing, bang, boom. You're an American hero." and ladies and gentlemen, what movie is that line from??) I like writing fight scenes (heaven knows why. Contrary to popular opinion, I've never been in a fight. The closet thing was probably those beanie baby fights we used to have in … Continue reading Bing, Bang, Boom (thoughts about fight scenes)

May Wrap Up: In Which the World is on Fire

Nationally and worldwide, May has been a rough month. There are crazy goofy things like murder hornets and monkeys escaping with COVID-19 (and monkeys on little motorbikes supposedly stealing children. I think this monkey thing is getting to my head cuz the other night I had a dream they were trying to get in my … Continue reading May Wrap Up: In Which the World is on Fire

Writing Like a Freight Train (I might kinda recommend it)

This is kinda of a long story so I'll try to sum up as nicely as possible. *ahem* A while back I had the idea to write a novel in a style I called "stream, of consciousness" or "brain dumping "(I know I know. That is basically pantsing but just bear with me alright). That … Continue reading Writing Like a Freight Train (I might kinda recommend it)

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 15

So I just found out about fiction ghostwriting this week...and I'm kinda weirded out? I understand ghostwriting for nonfiction. A lot of people with personal stories are necessarily writers, and need someone to work with them and yada yada yada. But fiction? I guess my question would be how much does the non writer put … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 15
