A Month in a Writer’s Life – June 2018

It seems like forever already since I moved to Virginia, but only now I finally feel that my mind and life are settling back into a routine. After rather perilous two months, I welcomed some steady productivity and progress, especially in my writing, even if it wasn’t as fast as I’d hoped to.

The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – June

It’s time for another month’s summary of the Wordwitch pictures, so if you missed any on Twitter and Facebook, or you aren’t a social media animal to begin with, you can find the June drawings below.

As always, I hope these pictures will make you smile, and maybe you’ll be able to relate to some of them as well.

A Month in a Writer’s Life – May 2018

Another month sped by me. If there was a time police, it would have gotten a ticket for reckless driving for sure. In comparison to the super-crazy March and April, May was the time of slowly settling down and checking whether my routine survived the turmoils of the “grand move”. Yet, after two months of struggling to keep going in a somewhat organize manner, I wasn’t about to exhaust myself even more and chose a slower pace instead.

The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – April & May

The Wordwitch

The post-move turbulence affected the Wordwitch as well, and even though the pictures appeared regularly on social media, I missed the April compilation. But nothing’s lost! This month, in return, you get a double amount of the pictures. I hope you’ll enjoy them! Continue reading “The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – April & May”

Finding Time to Write at 10 Minute Novelists

My monthly guest post at 10 Minute Novelists is up, and this month I’m tackling the issue close many writers: finding time to write.

If you ever tried to create anything with words: a short story, a blog post, or an essay, you know that writing is a time-consuming hobby. In a busy life, finding time to write can be both challenging and frustrating. So how can you do it? Continue reading “Finding Time to Write at 10 Minute Novelists”

A Month in a Writer’s Life – April 2018

A month in a writer’s life seems like a significant amount of time. Yet, when I blinked on the first of April, the month was suddenly coming to an end already. Even though we unpacked and settled in fairly quickly after our move across the continent, April was far from being back to the routine. I wasn’t overly busy, but the mind space needed to sort out all the bureaucratic problems that arose over time consumed a lot of my focus. It’s enough to say that swapping our driving licenses, a task that should have taken us one visit to DMV, took a month, multiple visits, and was only resolved because of… Twitter. Other issues might not have been that time consuming, but they did contribute to my general lack of progress this month. Continue reading “A Month in a Writer’s Life – April 2018”

“When You Shouldn’t be Writing” at 10 Minute Novelists

Recently, 10 Minute Novelists Facebook group was named among “10 Favorite Facebook Groups for Writers” by ProWritingAid. As I contribute to the group as an Admin, it was great to see it listed.

Meanwhile, last Friday my newest guest post appeared at 10 Minute Novelists website. We all know those memes that tell us in so many ways that we should be writing. But what about the times when… we shouldn’t? If you’re wondering whether your procrastination is only a sign of a bigger struggle, check out When You Shouldn’t be Writing.

A Month in a Writer’s Life – February & March 2018

The last two months blitzed by so quickly, my memories seem to be mostly a blur. Life happened, affecting my usual routine, and forcing me to combine my monthly post into a two-month summary. Continue reading “A Month in a Writer’s Life – February & March 2018”

The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – March

The Wordwitch

The Wordwitch (which got its name thanks to Myk Pilgrim) is a series of drawings I started back in January 2017. At first, it was one image, but soon more ideas followed and my notebook filled with more pictures.

These drawings appear weekly on Tuesdays, on social media under the #thewordwitch hashtag on Twitter and on my Facebook page, and they are also available as monthly roundup posts. Continue reading “The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – March”

A Month in a Writer’s Life – January 2018

January meant entering the fourth year of the writing challenge, and I even though I have my routine sorted already, I couldn’t resist joining again. 365 Writing Club does miracles when it comes to accountability. This year’s theme is “The Daily Writer”, focusing back on building the habit to write every day, and even though last year I missed only 4 days, I decided I could do better. Did I manage?
