Two words. One title. A few authors that got me through my weird “too geeky to be goth but too internally fearful of being goth to show it so I guess I’m gonna try to be an awkward prep or something” teenage phase. Good Omens. Originally posted by lousolversons The love story beyond humanity and out-of-this…

I Write for Myself

When Writing Doesn’t Come Easy

Writing when you’re struggling is HARD. Screw that idea that Van Gogh cutting off his ear and suffering with mental health somehow makes an artist “a genius” or better.

Crushing on Your Own Characters

Write the characters you want to read in the world. In my case, I wrote of a punk warrior with an undercut and serpent tattoos. Okay, so maybe they turn out just the teeniest bit evil as the novel progresses. Originally posted by morrtician I have a TYPE, okay? I’m not sure if other writers…
