Currently I've developed a schedule that I roughly follow daily, and it appears to be helping. It's also a great addition that my kids are getting older and can keep themselves busy for longer periods of time. I assume this gets better with time. It's still on a day to day basis with me, how … Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer
If you've been reading my blog previously, you're wondering who is Bookish Kat. I changed my blog name from Coffee Doll Chronicles to Bookish Kat. I wanted something simplistic that also incorporates my name so after much thought and consideration, I think it's safe to say I'm sticking with Bookish Kat.

I hit the 100 subscriber mark sometime last month and I'm yet to mention my thank yous for following my blog that's all over the place. It's been incredibly insane these last few months as I had some visitors but I'm here now. Back on the grind, slipping into my normal routine.

I've seen a lot of videos titled, how to know if you're a writer but I've never … Continue reading My Writing Story

It's truly a great relationship to be in when you delve into a good story, and your whole world … Continue reading Reading As A Writer
After I learned that this was an actual thing, I can be a little open about it. I'd often think that there was something wrong with me. Something childish that I never grew out of or just something completely ridiculous and it does still seem so, but it's an actual thing and other people enjoy … Continue reading My Strange Addiction to Paper
This morning I was remembering an incident where I was insulted for listening to Turkish music. Some years back, a classmate of mine was going through my iPod and he came across Arabic and Turkish music so he joked about it. Lo and behold some girl who gave me a lot of attitude(for no reason) … Continue reading Ashamed of Being Yourself
