Just like anything, I've come to realize that writing books is a business in itself. At the end of the day we all want to be our authentic selves in hopes that at least one person will receive it positively but it's also true that we write for an audience. Particularly in the romantic genres, … Continue reading Is Third Person POV Dead?|Writing Fiction
Hi Bookish Folks, I'm honestly overwhelmed by all the social media-ing it takes to promote oneself as a writer. Personally, I'm not much of a sharer other than funny or animal videos but I decided to finally undertake creating a Facebook page for my blog, Bookish Kat. My main reason for doing this is to … Continue reading Connect with my blog on Facebook!
Wow, I can't believe it's a year already. I had been blogging on other platforms before but it's been a year since I started using wordpress and working on better content. My blog has taken a different turn since I initially started it. To sum it up, I think I'm a mix between book blogger … Continue reading One Year WordPress Anniversary!
It would appear that I've taken a hiatus from blogging but I haven't. Whenever life gets busy, my blog suffers. So, I saw this video with a young kid practically breaking down about how he's being bullied at school. Firstly, I applaud him for speaking out. Secondly, bullying is a topic I'm deeply passionate about … Continue reading How Has Bullying Impacted Your Life?

In one of my writer groups, I've seen authors say they won't read reviews because they put them off or make them feel a certain way. While I respect authors' decisions … Continue reading How to Write A Book Review
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'll still be writing … Continue reading New Blog Look!
"The pen is mightier than the sword" is an expression coined by English author, Edward Bulwer-Lytton. It's main idea is the indication that communication is better than violence. This is a sentence or phrase that resonates deep with me, in my own personal way. I'm not a violent person who turned writer overnight (haha). Writing … Continue reading The Pen is Mightier Than The Sword
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 actually should … Continue reading Thank You for 100+ readers!
This is something I've been struggling with all of my blogging life. I've always jumped around and changed the name of my blog depending on the content or stage in life. I wouldn't dare use one of those insane screen names I used as an adolescent. I even changed platforms in the last year. Previously … Continue reading Blog Name Changes
