I’ve talked about naming characters twice already, and I still have more to say!
Here are a few things you’ll want to think about when searching for that perfect name for your perfectly flawed character. Your readers will thank you for it!Read More
Music is a must when I’m writing.
Think about it! Movies wouldn’t be the same without the music in the background, subtly (or not so subtly) telling you how to feel about a particular scene.
A writing playlist can totally help you get into your novel. Let’s make one!Read More
Today I want to share a few handy tricks that will make this naming process easier…hopefully.
Do you think that you’re a slow writer? That it just takes so long to get the words onto paper.
You’re not alone.
In fact, there’s a hashtag I see all the time over on Twitter.
So there are many other writers just like you out there! Does that mean that it isn’t frustrating? No. But that’s why I have some encouragement here for you to keep in mind.Read More
I love making aesthetics for what I’m writing! They’re a fun, visual representation of bits and pieces of your story. You could make one for the overall tone, a specific character, a place…the possibilities are endless.

I always have and always will be obsessed with names. They fascinate me. They speak so much to the person, their parents, and the culture they’re a part of.
This obsession with names doesn’t actually help my writing, though. It kinda makes it worse. THE NAMES HAVE TO BE PERFECT!

I’m a creative! Odds are that you are, too!
We both know what this means.
Even when we aren’t sitting down in front of a computer/pen and paper, we’re daydreaming; planning out the next big fight scene; trying to decide on the perfect name for that super minor character who will only ever show up in one scene but still has to have a perfect name.
So here are a few things that you can do (still away from that screen/paper!) that will keep your creative juices flowing. They might even help you stumble on the answer to one of your biggest writing-related questions.Read More
Just because we’re often lost in our own little world doesn’t mean that writers don’t want things, too!
Of course we want things!
Like pet dragons.
I’d take a never-ending supply of coffee, too!
Here are a few things that I think would make a perfect gift for any writer in your life (even if it’s you)!
Reward yourself for your most recent writing win with one of these puppies!Read More
