World Building Resources for the Writer

Unbelievably (considering I am 1. On holiday and 2. About to adopt a new child) I woke up last night (our holiday bed is horrible, to say the least, and any sleep gained is a bonus) from a dream which has just become a new fantasy novel idea. My dream now leaves me ready (within [...]

Blog 10 Today

In my next post I’ll be discussing a 10K challenge which is going on today. Now, I happen to know that I could – and often have – achieve that challenge, if I were in the right writing project. I’ve previously achieved 10,000 words a day on several occasions, and sometimes more than that. But [...]

Author Vs. Writer Vs. Novelist Vs. Published

WOW author, LuAnn Schlinder proposed an interesting thought lately in her own post entitled Author Vs. Writer. From my perspective, I haven’t got a clue.

Over the coming U.K. summer holidays, my family is scheduled to adopt a new child. Touch wood, because these things have a tendency to fall through for [...]

Free E-Books for Writers to be Updated

One of the most popular themes on Juiced on Writing is that of free e-books for writers. Like many writers, I am a collector of good quality information and references. I have a large library of paperbacks and hardbacks on writing, but also an even larger digital library of how-to write books. As I write [...]

Houses of Writing

I’ve dreamt of houses since a little child. New houses, old houses I used to live in, insides – sometimes, outsides – sometimes. In my dreams, I’ve set scenes in houses of memory, or created entirely new houses for my dream-character to explore. Dream Dictionaries would suggest that dreaming of houses signifies times of change [...]

Blogging (Writing) as Therapy

It’s not a biggie, enough people have pointed out the obvious therapeutic values derived from writing. Many writers maintain daily writing journals of some sort, not only as writing practice, and to improve our writing, but as a way to deal with the matters of the day.

Homeless in Blogging

Writing, as a blogger, and as a virtual writer, has its pitfalls. This week I fell. I should have seen it about to happen, especially after achieving a little success in my freelance writing over the weekend also. With one comes the other. Peaks and troughs, wins and losses.
