2 types of proofreaders and why you need them both

*Insert extremely catchy and non-clinche introduction here* So what are the 2 types of proofreaders? Why on earth do we, the writers, need them? Here's the information you need to know (from my personal experience). If you have any additional information, please feel free to leave a few comments below! 😉 FIRST TYPE: If they are …

oh. It’s another post about love.

Ah, Valentine’s Day! Let’s talk about love. No, not fireworks and roses and cuddles-till-you-die love. The most important one: the love you choose on a day to day basis.

Science, Books and Silly Things

For a person who doesn’t know romantic love at all I surely write a lot about it…   I tried to prepare myself to write this with my romantic playlist.

2016-02-12 (2) Yes, this is an Anna and the French Kiss quote. It’s one of my favorite romantic books and Etienne St. Clair is one of the main reasons I have so many unrealistic expectations.

But then again, it’s Valentine’s Day! My Uni’s celebration was last Thursday, so everyone had it in mind –including my professors. You could feel the love in the air… or at least the smell of the roses and chocolate people were giving each other because they think they are in love.

My professor said something about this. Being in love isn’t the same thing than actually loving someone. Loving is a choice. You will eventually lose those neurotransmitters that made you attracted to the…

Things fantasy books (almost always) get wrong about hunting

Thank you, Elisabeth! I actually just wrote a hunting scene yesterday.

Inkspelled Faery

I think it is a safe assumption that many fantasy writers have never been hunting in real life. Really, why sit in a stuffy deer blind with no AC or toilet for hours on end when you could be reading books and sipping tea in your favorite armchair?

When it comes to hunt scenes, most people don’t notice the common inaccuracies because they are pretty consistently incorporated across TV and books. However, if someone is looking to appease the tiny demographic of fantasy-reading hunters, these are the things I’ve noticed books most frequently get wrong about hunting.

Game regularly comes in the size of midsize automobiles.

In truth, wild animals tend to…

Brace yourself—NaNo WriMo is coming

Inkspelled Faery

NaNo-2015-Participant-Badge-Large-SquareCome Sunday, it will be that time of year again. The time of writing meet-ups, all-nighters, and frantic pounding at keyboards to meet last minute word quotas. There is something exciting and addictively nerve wracking about joining people across the country and even the globe in getting to that 50k word mark. No pressure, right?

I’ve participated in National Novel Writing Month for two or three years now with pretty good success overall (if I do say so myself). Due to my (clearly vast and indisputable) experience, I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned from participating this glorious tradition.

1. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

The whole point of NaNo WriMo is to write a draft—a draft. Drafts just need to be done. It’s okay to focus on word count for the next 30 days. Those plot holes, halfway character development, and inconsistencies can wait for now.
