Hi everyone!
Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I suppose I didn't want to start being repetitive.
So I'm on chapter 3, taking my time, but it's surprising how many mistakes I still make.
I've had the first 2 chapters edited by the lovely Hazel West, who is herself a wonderful writer. You can check her works out here -->
She has an upcoming book tour, so keep your eyes peeled!

I've been figuring out my world today; I realised I have plunged into everything without planning too much what's beyond the town my characters are currently in. A newbie's error I guess, but that's how I will learn!

I think the hardest part right now is names. I'm trying to invent names- people, places and other bits and bobs- so I always think what I come up with either sounds silly or stolen from other authors.

Also, in other news, I've joined Wattpad. It's pretty cool, for both readers and writers alike. Very handy for discovering new authors and hidden talent. Check it out!

That's all for now I guess :)
Stay cool!


  1. Aw, thanks for the mention comrade ;)

    I can't wait to read more of your story! And don't worry, I still go through "plot block" even though I have written for a long time. I'll admit I probably have an advantage with writing historical things because whenever I need ideas I hit the history books. I'm having the same problem with my mystery novel right now, my villain is being very stubborn and won't reveal his plans, which means in a mystery novel, no plot!

    Check out this site for names, I guarantee you'll find some very unique ones!

  2. You're welcome, it's the least I could do!

    Yes, that's the downside to fantasy. . .if my imagination fails me I'm done haha.
    Oooo, a mystery novel! Hmm, maybe research some famous criminals (like the psycho ones) and look at the 'lesser' crimes that didn't make them famous or why they became so messed up. Maybe inspire some evilness =)

    Thanks for the name site! Very handy!

  3. My main baddie is more of a narcissist than a psychopath, (but there's a secondary villain who is just plain creepy as well) I have been looking a little into real criminals though I started researching for another novel so I haven't done much with that one for a while. All writers end up doing a little research on psychology when crafting their villains. I've always found the subject very interesting.
