YALC books review!

Create every day

Since it's one month until NaNoWriMo, and Inktober has just started, I thought I would talk about a concept that has really helped me improve my productivity as an artist: create every day. There is a lot of advice on the subject everywhere, and they all seem to conflict. Today, I am going to talk [...]

NaNoWriMo is back in a month!

You might already know that I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. It will be my fourth time, after 3 wins in the past years with fiction stories: Temples of Gold (a fanfiction that I never published) and Healers drafts 1 and 2 (the second one being a total re-write of the first, it felt like [...]

Where I talk about bad guys

Lately with my novel Healers I've been hitting a pretty big block: my antagonist doesn't make sense. I was so busy fleshing out my two main characters that I forgot to empathise with my villain. Since I'm rewriting the scenes that lead to the climax, I find that his motivations are not clear at [...]
