YALC books review!

By | 2018-10-05T12:41:37+00:00 October 7th, 2018|Books, Journal|0 Comments

Hi guys, I thought I would do something a little different today. I've been reading a lot lately, thanks to the big haul that I got from YALC 2018, and it made me want to write reviews. I've finished 3 of them so far, and they were all great so they all deserve a shout [...]

Writing and lower back pain

By | 2018-10-05T12:46:11+00:00 October 5th, 2018|Journal|0 Comments

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have noticed that I have many issues with back pain. I have a herniated disc in my spine, and it is causing pain and loss of mobility. It is not easy to be a writer with back problems, especially when dealing with a full-time job that can [...]

Create every day

By | 2018-10-03T12:41:42+00:00 October 2nd, 2018|Journal|0 Comments

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 [...]

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

By | 2018-05-22T20:04:24+00:00 May 22nd, 2018|Novels, Projects|3 Comments

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 [...]

Research: Subterranean shelter

By | 2018-05-22T20:16:02+00:00 October 28th, 2017|Novels|2 Comments

Hi everyone, I'm still burried into my preparation for NaNoWriMo but yesterday I took a little break to do something I've wanted to do for years: visiting a subterranean shelter from World War 2. It's still linked with my novel, as scenes of it will happen in a similar location. Research was therefore a good [...]
