How Has Bullying Impacted Your Life?

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?

A Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer

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

How to Write A Book Review

While most book bloggers and book reviewers out there write awesome and informative reviews, I've seen multiple discussions about how book reviews are done. 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

New Blog Look!

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

"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

Thank You for 100+ readers!

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.

Blog Name Changes

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

How to Be A Happier You

I initially started blogging to help people who really had no one to talk to or understand them. I really wanted my troubling feelings to be able to reach out to someone and help them through whatever difficult situation they were in. I am not saying that there are people out there who don't have… Continue reading How to Be A Happier You

Mistakes I Made As a Writer

Since I have started working on book length stories, my knowledge and experience of the writing process has broadened significantly. When I started out with writing books, my basic process was to just start writing with one small idea I had at the time with barely any concept. I just had an idea, basic knowledge… Continue reading Mistakes I Made As a Writer
