If so, my gift could be on its way to you!! I’m participating in Reddit’s Secret Santa exchange this year for the first time and I am beyond excited. I’ve had it slighty rough these last few months, and needed something fun to do to create some ‘Christmas cheer’. And it’s totally working! While I do enjoy receiving gifts, I absolutely thrive on giving them. It’s like… my … Continue reading Are you participating in Reddit’s Secret Santa exchange?
Yeah, you’re probably just as surprised as me. I have no clue how I got here, but all I can say is how much I f—ing love you guys. I’m not usually the type of person to write these kinds of posts (I feel like it’s very much ‘kimmy, look atme, look atme’), but I felt like you all deserved to know how much I … Continue reading I have 5000 followers!!
Now that the end of Nanowrimo is coming up, I’m sure there will be plenty of writers who will be jumping up and down with joy when they reach that elusive 50k goal. Some may even finish their novels. And if you’re one of them? Well, cheers to you. I’m also hoping there are a few others out there like me who started Nanowrimo, quickly … Continue reading The nine stages of FINALLY finishing your story
If you’re a writer, undomesticated equines probably can’t stop you from writing wherever and whenever the tantalising desire strikes. It is a magnetic force that consumes you for a few minutes to a few days at a time, and it can strike randomly and without prejudice. But, unfortunately… there is one thing that will try to stop you. It’s called your day job (if you’re a poor sod … Continue reading The nine stages of trying NOT to write at work
I used to pay out anyone who participated in NaNoWriMo, thinking that anyone who took part wasn’t a real writer. Why the hell would you wait until November to write a novel? Why not write one now, whether that ‘now’ is May or August? I was someone who used to write every day, and scoffed at anyone who thought joining a mass-writing event was cool. Until the … Continue reading Thank you NaNoWriMo, for helping me overcome my Fear
There was a storm brewing outside. A cliché I know, but there really was a storm brewing, no other word for it. And even though I didn’t want to look, I was transfixed. A crack of thunder made me jump, and for a moment, I thought I saw the outline of a man in the clouds… I shivered, trying to reassure myself that it was … Continue reading Short story: The One Left Behind
My blog is littered with seriously un-literary like cat gifs (and which I will not forgive), so I thought I’d write about something serious for a change – and why not review a play, say PROOF, the 2001 Pulitzer Prize winner by American playwright David Auburn? I found out from my college friends that PROOF was being presented by ADMS at the TAS Hoskins Centre … Continue reading The ‘PROOF’ is in the play
This isn’t going to be a philosophical debate on self-concepts or creative reasoning – I literally just want to tell you a little bit about myself (and I know how much you’ve all been dying to get to know me). To think that I’ve been blogging for close to two years now, and I have never properly introduced myself! Now that I think about it, I never even bothered … Continue reading Who am I?
I really have no clue, but as I’m thinking about self-publishing (as soon as I get rejected by every publisher in Australia) I’ve been reading article after article trying to figure out if I have any chance of making a living. And yeah, it’s very possible. But making a fortune? Not so much. The chances of that happening would probably be the same as scoring … Continue reading How much money can you make by self-publishing?
So I was perusing through Discover, when I came across The Well-Thumbed Reader and found her post on 9 Stressful Blogging Situations (And how to solve them). At one point Mikaela mentioned ‘blogging envy’, causing me to immediately remember all the different instances that I too, had faced a monster with eyes of a particular shade of green. Feeling jealous is often viewed as a … Continue reading The nine different blogs that give you blogging envy
