A Month in a Writer’s Life – July 2018

A Month in a Writer’s Life – July 2018

As months continue to dash toward the end of the year, I’m back – yet again and seemingly way too soon – with my regular report on my writer’s life. The memories of my move across the States slowly fade, and I find myself rebuilding my routines.

Becoming a Beta Reader, Becoming a Better Writer at 10 Minute Novelists

This month at 10 Minute Novelists, I talk about how becoming a beta reader for other writer can make someone a better writer. If you look up online advice for writers, you’ll likely find a mention of beta readers and how crucial they are for improving one’s writing.

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.

“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.

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

You might have noticed that I haven’t been around much lately, and this month’s Wordwitch post is late. It’s because I’m in the middle of preparing to move across the States. For the same reason, the February’s A Month in the Writer’s Life won’t be posted. I’ll tell you all about my adventures in a joint February-March post in the beginning of April. Thank you for your understanding! But for now, I hope you’ll enjoy February’s compilation of the Wordwitch…
