Have you ever gone through periods where you're not finishing books because they don't seem to hold your interest? It's either the excitement tapers off or the writing needs work. It's always something. For the past year I can say, I've been shelving more books as DNF(did not finish) more than finished. As a lover … Continue reading Reading Slump!
Before becoming a part of any online community of writers and readers like myself, I have never felt pressured about writing reviews. I don't think I've left comments that bash an author or their work. I don't believe in that but similar to having an opinion on a movie, us readers have opinions on books. … Continue reading Should Book Reviewers be Censored?
Let me begin by saying this post is in no way meant to bash romance writers, readers or books. Till date, it remains one of my most read genres. However in the last few years, I've closed book after book, after reading only a few pages. There were a few of them that stuck, and … Continue reading Am I getting bored of reading romance?
Good Day Bookish Folk! Lately, I've been having a love/hate relationship with romance books which I'll cover in my very next post. But somewhere in between all of those DNFs(Did not finish), I'll come across ones written by A.D. McCammon. Her first two books, In This Moment and Crushed can be found on amazon.com for … Continue reading In The Gray by A.D. McCammon| COVER REVEAL + Giveaway!
I did a post some time back about having someone hovering over my shoulder or just casually standing behind me. People responded to it, so I guess I'm not the only one that feels a mixed surge of annoyance and anxiousness by it. Lately, I've been growing a special distaste for answering phones, but it's … Continue reading New Anxieties
I've always written for self-fulfillment more than anything else. This I've said a gajillion times, and nothing's going to change that. It's been almost four years since I've been considering publishing, and I've been faced with many highs and many lows. I understand it all comes with the territory of writing. It's no easy feat … Continue reading Is my heart still in it?| Writing Fiction
So I want to touch on subplotting. Not the dynamics of it per se. I want to share why I continuously need to cut back on having too many things going on in a story. Sometimes we have to learn things, and sometimes we have to unlearn them. I started writing poetry and screenplays at … Continue reading Cutting Back on Subplots|Writing Fiction
Like many other writers, I have this little book of ideas. It's raw, undetermined. Most of the thoughts in there may not even reach full on story level. I have noticed, however, that there's more than one plot involving a twin. There's a twin dynamic in my current work in progress so I'm getting a … Continue reading Am I obsessed with twins?|Writing Fiction
I've got back to back book reviews 🙂 And I'm happy that I completed four books in January so far. My secret goal is to do four a month but I don't want to do any bragging yet because I know myself. Life gets in the way. Finally finished Shatter Me, and started Forget Me … Continue reading Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi|Book Review
