Inspiration is an integral part of the writing process, without it you are stuck. I don’t have a lot of problems with inspiration; it seems to overrun my mind. However, once I started a book with giant eagles (Shahira and the Flying Elfs) and was so busy with promoting my already published books that a […] … Continue reading Reblog: 9 Ideas to Get Inspiration or Beat Writer’s Block by A Writer’s Path
It’s been five years, and I’m still trying to perfect my recipe for an earl grey latte. It sounds so easy. Tea. Milk. Sweetener (I like honey). Lavender, if you’re feeling it (which I usually am). But it’s the proportions that get me. Even after so many tries, I still haven’t quite gotten it right. … Continue reading Elusive Inspiration Part 2: Seeking Memories
As I’m meeting more writers and delving into the writing community, I’m getting this question a lot: “Where do you get your inspiration/ideas from?” It’s a pretty broad question and one that’s difficult for me to answer.

At home, I can just be in my quiet little bubble. Everything is familiar and safe, and I have few worries. I … Continue reading Get out of the house. Seriously.
I’m a city-dweller – you know, rush hour traffic, a major interstate a mile away, tourists, every restaurant chain you could ever dream of, etc. I was blessed enough to find a quiet nook of the city to live in, which is my perfect bubble. Utter peace inside, but lots to do outside. Still, there’s … Continue reading The Magic of Little Coffee Shops
No. 2 in a series of posts designed to give an overview of self-publishing. It’s a beautiful moment. You’re sitting there, thinking about ideas or memories, and all of a sudden it comes together and you say: “I think I shall write books!” (if you’re anything like Jo March). The revelation is easy. So is … Continue reading So, You Want to Write a Book?
