Facebook page

Buongiorno!

That's good day in Italian (in case you didn't know.) 
As you can tell from the title of this post, I am writing to you today about a Facebook page. My Facebook page to be exact. Yep, that's right. I have a Facebook page, and I haven't told you guys about it yet. Don't get angry, I forgot with school and things.

Lucky 7 meme

Helllooooo :-)

So, Thomas Amo, author of An apple for Zoe and Lets get Lade, has tagged me as one of his lucky seven. This means that I have to go to the 77th page of my current WiP, go down seven lines and then post the next seven lines after that on here. Simple enough. Unfortunately, the manuscript for Tainted Blood (working title) only has 62 pages! To compensate for this, I am going to give you seven lines from two manuscripts. I am using page 7 instead— after all, this is called lucky seven. The rules state that I am not allowed to modify these lines before I post (luckily I've found no spelling errors!) and I cannot give you any explanation to the events prior to the scene you read.

Here it goes!

Writing update #2



It's been, what, three weeks since my first 'writing update' post? That's a lot of time in the writing world. Before I unload what's happened in those three weeks, I feel the need to explain myself properly first.

In the last post, I mentioned that I didn't want to publish until after University. Then I went on to say that I am going to self-publish before I graduate in five or so years. That doesn't seem to make sense, right? That's because I didn't phrase it properly and I missed out one key piece of information: I want to publish traditionally.

Traditionally means

What are plotting and pantsing?

So, if you're new to the online world of writing, you may have heard the terms plotter, pantser & (in some cases...) plantser. These all refer to the writing process. More specifically, these all apply to the planning process (or lack of.) This will be a short, simple post to just explain the terms of the three words. At the end, you can answer this question:

Are you a plotter, pantser or plantser? 


Plotter

It's easy enough to guess what this one means. It mean you plot (or plan if you prefer) and you also research. Some of you could be thinking,
