How to have more energy

By |2019-02-15T21:03:02+00:00October 23rd, 2018|Journal, Non-Fiction|0 Comments

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 [...]

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 [...]

Research: Subterranean shelter

By |2019-02-15T21:14:49+00:00October 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.
