Exploring life through writing

I love my Kindle

Ok, I know, I¬†shouldn’t be professing love to an inanimate object, but I do love that darn thing! My Kindle is the first generation, nothing fancy (ok, it has the 3G, hallelujah!), but I love it just the way it is. I received it for Christmas few years ago and it’s the best “toy” I […]

Writing is My Lifeline

I am here to profess my love for Writing. I am not ashamed to admit, that when we first met, I was very intimidated and shy around Writing. I wasn’t sure if I was worth It, or ever be good enough for It. Writing seemed so well defined and polished and I surely would never […]

Writing – You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!

I’ve been thinking recently of what a battle it is to write. And most of the time, it is a battle with ourselves. And a quote came to my mind from one of my favorite moves, “Sucker Punch”. It applies to so many areas of our lives, and for me, it applies to writing: “Who […]

Writing is Courage

Don’t let the inspiration hold you back. Often, when we sit down to write, we don’t feel “inspired”. We are tired, reeling from stress from our regular day jobs and the last thing we want to do is open a page and be honest with ourselves. So we pretend that the issue here is a […]

My Must-Haves When I Write

In one of my previous posts I talked about the Inspiration and how, rather waiting for the inspiration to write, you should write first and the inspiration will surely follow. However, there is that subject of actually writing. How do you make yourself get into that writing chair daily and stick to it? And once […]

Share the Inspiration, My Favorite Quotes

As I am following my 500 words a day plan (still going strong!), I wanted to share something with you. As writers we know the power of a word. We write thousands of words that paint stories that make readers laugh and cry and feel as if they are in the middle of the story. […]

Inspiration and Writing Daily

Inspiration is lazy and loves to sleep. Don’t wait for it to show up on a date. Bring yourself and begin to write. Set yourself a goal, 200 words, 500, 2K, whatever and you might wake the Inspiration up from its slumber.   I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the sound of clicking […]

Sleepwalker Chronicles, Chapter 1

Today, as a Mother’s Day gift to myself, I decided to set aside fear and doubt and begin to show my baby to the world. I am posting the opening chapter of the Sleepwalker Chronicles, my first paranormal YA novel I am planning to publish at the end of this year. This is still work […]

I Disappear When I Write

I heard somewhere that Jules Verne was so engrossed in his writing that when he was working on a chapter taking place in Arctic, he got sick with flu. It happens to all of us more often than not, when we write, we become so much part of the story, we transport there and the […]

Be Flexible With Your Tools

Every writer has a favorite method of putting words on paper. Some like composition books and a #2 pencil. Some love a pretty moleskin journal and a nice, easy flowing pen. Some love laptops and some are cool with a tablet on a go and some still use good old typewriters. I am a computer […]
