My tips for NaNoWriMo

By | 2018-10-31T15:19:03+00:00 October 31st, 2018|NaNoWriMo|0 Comments

NaNoWriMo is back, and for the fourth time I'm doing it! Now, I have the benefit of 3 previous years of experience, and I thought I would do a quick post with tips that helped me previously. 1. NaNoWriMo is a marathon, not a sprint The easiest part of NaNoWriMo is the beginning. There's the [...]

How to have more energy

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably have seen the survey for my book "The Part-Time Artist". In this survey, one of the question was about the biggest problem with having an artistic career and a job-to-pay-the-bills. Many people replied "energy", and how they felt so exhausted after their day job. It meant that [...]

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|1 Comment

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 [...]

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 [...]
