My Writing Process: Blog Tour- November 2013

I’ve been asked to do this by a couple of my friends. I don’t have that much time this week, because I have a load of assessments and stuff coming in and to be honest I don’t really feel like writing a bunch of stuff on here anyway…but apparently a friend, who already did this thing, really …

Indecision

I don’t want to move forward with writing. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. I think that’s a quote from Franklin Roosevelt, or some other American President- not like I’m an authority on the subject of American presidential quotes, because I don’t actually know anything about American Presidents, other than the current one …

The Novels I’m Starting…

It’s been some time since I had time to write a real ‘new’ post on this blog (eg. not taking old content and posting it again)…but I’m back! I am still a rather busy person (and will continue to be for the rest of my life…I guess) but anyway first off I want to talk …

Sestina Poem- A Glorious Massacre

I haven’t posted in some time- I’ve been in a flood of homework recently. I’m going to be having my term break soon, however, so I’ll finally get around to writing again soon. Anyway, just to have some new content here, I decided to post a poem I wrote for English class a few days …

Short Story- Just a Dream

I’ve been incredibly busy these past few weeks. Barely had time to write anything new at all. So, I’ll take a never-published old short story to post here this week.JUST A DREAMJames teared the envelope and slowly pulled out the paper inside. His hand trembled as he read his returned university application form. Another page had been …

Rewriting Novels?

As you may or may not know, a while back (well, a long while back) I finished my novel, Revolution: Rise of Darkness. To recap, here’s how I summarized my novel:A group of teenagers go on a school camping trip into the national park. They go off to the forest, and return to their camp simply …

Thoughts on Writing Historical Fiction

I’m now a few weeks into writing Shield of Fire (my historical fiction novel about the Persian Wars) and my progress has been very slow- only got to chapter 2? I thought I’d talk a bit about how I’m doing with writing historical fiction. Firstly, I want to write this post because of the highly important reason …

Short Story- Café Confession

I’d said in a previous post that I wanted to post short stories. Been pretty busy lately (and will be for about two weeks more, since it’s major assessment time at my school) so I decided to post a short story I already have. It’s a love story called ‘Café Confession’ and I hope you …

On Writing Short Stories

Should I be writing more short stories? As you may have noticed, I call myself a ‘writer’ but I have never posted a short story on this blog before. And short stories are supposed to be super-common, aren’t they? Why haven’t I written and posted any yet? The truth is I have written short stories before. Obviously. …
