Nano is here and if you don’t know what it is, its basically a competition against yourself to write fifty thousand words on a new book. Many people use this as a chance to just finish a novel, get one started, developing great writing habits, and you can do all of those things. This year I’m not competing but I am writing for the whole months of November and I’m sharing 30… Read More

One day I had to set aside my heart project. The one that made me become a writer. I was sad but I was finally free to do something wild. Daring. Like I hadn’t ever let myself do before. From the dusty book tomes of my mother’s romantic suspense, and my own obsession with the darkness within death, Behind the Veil came to me as a single scene. It splurged out of… Read More

  I’m having a rant. Want to know why? Because people are being bullied. Being threatened. Being made to feel unwelcome and unwanted in the #WritingCommunity.   I wish this wasn’t the first time I’ve spoken about how I’ve seen or been guilted in the #WritingCommunity about what I do with my Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages, but I’d be a damn liar.   Anyone who’s followed me would know I have… Read More

This was meant to be a delightful post I wrote several days ago about my accomplishments this year. I’ve not had time to go over it, given the NSW fire issues but wanted to post it anyway because despite everything it doesn’t take away my accomplishments of this year. I wrote a story in this blogpost to help relay what its been like. You have to find ways to remember all you’ve… Read More

Welcome one and all to my blog!   For All Hallows Eve (look, if you haven’t figured out I’m Australian by now here is you’re cue), I wish to present to those on the cusp and preparing for the dreaded thirty days of mayhem, trauma, and soul crushing despair, faced during the course of Nanowrimo, the kind of foe which every writer has come to know…   WRITERS BLOCK!   Scary, yeah?… Read More

Writing for You   I’ve been bummed lately. I’m not even gonna lie about about it.   “Don’t post about negativity.”   Blogging 101 – and today… I don’t care.   I’ve been stuck in a little bit of a rut and what I want you to know is how to conquer that because right now I feel like the world is at my feet rather than hanging over my head. I’ve… Read More

I was recently speaking to a friend about what else she could do beyond the basics of getting her marketing plan ready, and what it was to actually have one. There were things I knew, information I’d learned over the years that I’d kept to myself. Another Twitter user asked for some pointers, completely separate, and I thought about sharing my secretes with them too, before I asked myself why the hell… Read More

Sixteen weeks ago I was curled against the wall sobbing that there was no point being a writer anymore. I had to stop working on the Last Prophecy series and I wasn’t sure I could keep doing this. I wasn’t just tired, I was well and truly beyond weary. Exhausted. Five years ago I met with a doctor who’d taken a series of blood tests. The original tests were supposed to have… Read More
