Writing A Novel: Two Ways To Strengthen Character Voice

Writing a novel is like exploring a forest… There are many different paths, many of them carved out by those who explored before you, and you aren’t quite sure which one to take. Maybe it’s none of them. There’s also a lot of unexplored shrubbery, and you could maybe carve your own way through. You’re […]

Writing Tips/Insights #3: Write the Book You Want to Read

Have you ever tried writing in a genre that you don’t particularly enjoy? Or don’t enjoy at all for that matter? Even if it’s just a couple of thousand words? Well, as a ghostwriter, I certainly have and let me tell you: it is nowhere near as fun as writing in your favourite genre or […]

This one pretty much applies to every walk in life, to every avenue throughout your journey, but that doesn’t make it any less relevant or any less applicable to writing for that matter.

It is more the case of thoughtless minds That whispering truths […]
