Do Not Look

Lately I’ve had far too many different creative inspirations and projects going through my head nonstop. I’m loving it as well as a bit overwhelmed by it. Yet when it came to writing a poem for this week’s blog, I was struggling so much. I couldn’t focus. I didn’t like what I was writing. What … Continue reading Do Not Look


13 Things I’ve Learned About Writing from Baking

Earlier this year, I decided that I wanted to start baking more regularly, even if only once a week. This quickly became an activity that I do every Monday, and usually I make Turner’s and my bread for the week. I like getting a bit experimental with it and sometimes do other baked goods in … Continue reading 13 Things I’ve Learned About Writing from Baking

Around the Block

A couple weeks ago, I was trying to finish a blog post that I had been excited about for weeks, but then when I sat down to write it, and later to finish it, I couldn’t think of a single example or word that I had been wanting to use. My mind was blank. I … Continue reading Around the Block

Blue eyes, grey skies, red lights, and black nights. Colours are always surrounding us, in life, nature, and fiction.

It's been a really long time since I've posted anything. I have no excuses, and also no apologies. It's been a truly crazy year, and I simply haven't kept writing as one of my top priorities.

Writing: Planning a Scene

Tea in hand, Google Docs pulled up, Harry Potter soundtracks blaring through my headphones, and a desire to write (and hopefully motivation and inspiration to go with it). This is a common picture of how I start writing on whatever project on any given day. But lately, I’ve found myself sitting down and just staring...and … Continue reading Writing: Planning a Scene

Story: My New Return

It’s time for a story. Most of the ideas I originally had for this turned into things that will be longer stories instead. Thankfully Azelyn came to the rescue with a writing exercise. The prompt: Tell a dreamlike story/memory using only 50 words. I ended up basing this story off the prompt and my memory … Continue reading Story: My New Return

Writing: Creating an Outline

There are countless ways to approach writing an outline for your novel. Sometimes it takes multiple forms to get just one outline put together. I recently finished my first “complete” outline for a book that I’ve had in my head for three years. I did so by combining three of the outlining styles I’ve heard … Continue reading Writing: Creating an Outline

Andrew tells us a bit about the things he likes to hear. "I love the sound of my best friend's singing (she sounds awful)."
