I work in Customer Service. I am the face of a premium brand, and I work in a flagship store. So you can imagine the number of people I meet on a daily basis.

I’ve met and conversed with A LOT of people. Strangely enough, I began to feel as though I’ve got an invisible marker only outsiders can see; marking my forehead stating ‘TRUST ME WITH YOUR TROUBLES.’ One of many people will always stand out for me – women.

I’ve met so many different kinds of women; women I wish NOT to be like, but even I know me and my many demons carry the traits of these many women.

☆1. THE GIRL IN THE MIRROR.

Insecurities. Tiny voices that whisper sweet venom into your ears. The worse concoction made is a woman with insecurities. The tiny whispers turn to roars, they take over a person’s every…

Shiny vs. Dull Methods of Planning

I was on a ‘comment festival’ on the 28th of last month, and it’s what inspired this post.

On a few blogs I follow, I mention the novel I’m working on whenever it’s relevant. Not just a”oh, by the way, I’m working on a novel. I’m great,” comment, but genuinely offering my thoughts. I wrote on one, “about 5,000 words in, the characters and storyline become too familiar. The novel loses its shine, as does my motivation to keep going.” Or something along those lines. I can’t remember exactly.

I think this a problem every writer has faced. I’m someone who struggles to complete long projects like a novel, and I think I’ve figured out why. Which means I can make it potentially easier for myself.

To plan this “practice novel” that I’m currently writing, I used the Snowflake Method, which you’ve probably seen me talk about at least once now. Depending on…

  • Write down your New Year’s writing resolutions.

 

  • You see a meteorite crash down and when you go to investigate you find it covered with strange hieroglyphics.

 

  • You are watching t.v. on New Year’s day when you see a news report that says scientists expect the world to end at the end of this year. What happens?

 

  • You travel back in time and realize you are in a parallel universe, but when you try to get back you get lost among the multitude of parallel universes.

New Year’s Writing Resolutions!

2 Comments

It’s a new year which means it is the perfect time to both take a look back and reflect on the last year and plan out the year ahead. Ask yourself if you accomplished everything you hoped to this past year. Hopefully the answer is “no.” Not because I want you to do badly, I’m not usually that mean. Rather I believe that writers should have so many plans and dreams that it would be impossible to have everything.

Either way, get out your pen and paper (or computer for you younglings) and prepare to start this year off right by writing down what you hope to get out of your writing career in the months to come. Here are some of the resolutions off my list, feel free to post your own in the comments. Good Luck and Happy New Year!

  • Finish at least three books, including one novel.
  • Stick to my schedule of writing at least five days a week, regularly.
  • Practice making ebook covers.
  • Work on editing my manuscripts in a timely manner (I usually despise editing).
  • Go to six new places or events (writing fodder).
  • Win a writing competition.
  • Get published in a print or online magazine.
  • Learn at least five new skills (more writing fodder).
  • Win Nanowrimo.
  • Finish my first screenplay.
  • Work on branding and marketing myself.
  • Make at least one good book trailer.
