Blog Hop: 7/7/7 Challenge

Blog Hop: 7/7/7 Challenge

Back in May, Myk Pilgrim tagged me in a Facebook chain post, challenging me to post 7 lines from the 7th line at page 7 of my WIP. I promptly did so, and after tagging a bunch of my writing friends, I enjoyed having a sneak peak into what they were working on (and I do hope I get to read their finished pieces!). Then I forgot about the challenge, though I still saw the post and tags circulating along…

Gaming Writer’s Saturday

Gaming Writer’s Saturday

I’ve been a gamer for about as long as I’ve been writing stories. First on Atari XP, then on Intel 386, and finally on stronger PCs and laptops as well as game consoles. Whenever I need to relax a bit and I’m too tired to read, I switch a video game on. Games also help me when I search for inspiration, so it seemed like a good idea to share all the games that support my procrastination … erm, I…

That Novel I’m Not Writing

That Novel I’m Not Writing

This post has been prompted by a chat with Meg Cowley (if you’re not following her on Twitter, let me fix that for you: @meg_cowley). We shared our experience of being immersed in the worlds we create and jumping between them, and the conversation steered toward one of my projects. Meg got curious, and I somewhat promised her more information on it.

A Month of Writing – July

A Month of Writing – July

Summer is the time when people think of the sun, long-awaited vacation in some nice place and focus on relaxing if they can. Those of us stuck in the day jobs can only dream of the sea and beaches while glancing at the patch of the blue sky through the office window. And with the weather being moody this year in Ireland, I got my heat only from my projects, because July was quite challenging.

The Importance of a Satysfying Ending

The Importance of a Satysfying Ending

Those who follow me on Twitter probably already know that I’ve finally finished Dragon: Age Inquisition. I’ve played the game quite extensively in February, and when it became clear I’m getting close to the end, I took a break, not ready to finish it yet. At the same time I was surprised with the main plot line’s length and complexity, or what I’d rather consider the lack of them. I usually don’t rush through the games, and even though I…

A Month of Writing – June

A Month of Writing – June

June has not only marked the half-way of the 365k Club challenge, but it also has turned out quite an interesting month writing-wise. As you already know, I’ve finished the first draft of my fantasy novel, so for the first half of the month my excitement of being so close to the end has fueled the word count. Then I wrote the novel’s last sentence. And I felt lost.

Guest Post on 10 Minute Novelists

Katharine Grubb from 10 Minute Novelists invited fellow writers to parcitipate in the “Why I write” series this month, and it’s been my pleasure to write a post for her, so if you’re curious on my thoughts on fantasy, hop over to the page and read my “Fantasy: The (Not So) Easy Genre“.

The Thing That Always Feels Great

The Thing That Always Feels Great

There are things that always feel great. The taste of the first strawberries when the summer starts. Opening a new book by one’s favorite author. The touch of a pillow on the face after a long and tiresome day. No matter how many times experienced, they always feel the same. And finishing one’s writing, be it a short story or long novel, is one of those things.

A Month of Writing – May

A Month of Writing – May

If you’re here in hope of finding news of disasters, missed deadlines and too low word counts, I have to disappoint you. So what happened in the fifth month in my 365k Club challenge? I probably should have report May has been dull, filled with steady progress, and nothing more, but I’ve made several discoveries about my writing process along the way, which I’d like to share with you.
