I have wonderful writing news: I have been published for the first time! YAY!
My poem, The Queen of Justice, was published on the Selcouth Station Web site on September 25th, 2017. This now (officially) makes me a poet!
I am so giddy with joy and satisfaction. Also note that this poem has taken a feminist identity of its own from readers, which I find quite interesting (I love it!).
It's a steady (and big) step towards my novel AND my collection of poems!
This publication also gave me something I cruelly lacked lately: Hope.
So, that's it!
You can read it (and I hope you'll enjoy it, too!) here: https://www.selcouthstation.com/single-post/2017/09/25/Poem-The-Queen-of-Justice....
How did you like it?

|Hello, everyone !
I was looking for what to write today and I remembered something a kind reviewer on here told me a year ago. It was: ''If it sounds like writing, I re-write it.''
It's a very good piece of advice.
Sometimes (mostly when I haven't been writing for a few days), I find it difficult to get into the story mindset and find that everything I write is off the point. Well, this is exactly what the tip says: it sounds like writing! Thus, I have to re-write it better. It also works for blog posts and every kind of writing. Try it!
It's been a long while I hadn't heard such a good tip and I'm glad this person had told me. It gave me enough positivism to start back from where I left in my writing yesterday. Soon, my Thomas Lance's background story is going to be ready, freshly re-written and polished. Thanks to those words, because I found my writing had lost its spark until this saying came back around in my mind.
Also, thanks to my mind for recalling it! Haha.
On this, I wish you all a very good day, and friends, remember: ''If it sounds like writing, re-write it.'' :) Because we all want a clean, polished, and smooth story to the eye and the mind.
|For NaNoWriMo Prep, I wrote a summary of my new novel from Miranda's POV (one of my two main characters). Remember that it is subject to change, but so far, this is what it looks like (hope you enjoy!):
One day I dream of being a world-renowned boxing champion and the next I want to protect others. It all began when I was hanging out with my friend on a Saturday afternoon. A young criminal, Thomas Lance, attacked and frightened us. From that day on, I, Miranda Kane, swore to become the heroine the people need.
This is the story of how I almost lost everything by becoming Feather.
This is my story.
|My novel Down to Earth is at the publishing stage. I need help to see my dream come true as I cannot make the future payments.
Please, take a look at my fundraising and share the word. My story of acceptance and finding your inner powers might just help someone.
Thank you very much.
Here is my Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/871261642/lets-get-down-to-earth
|I've just published the first chapters to my book Upside Down on LeanPub. Please, support me (it's only 5 dollars and you get free updates afterwards, which means all the upcoming chapters).
Thank you so very much!
Here it is :D: https://leanpub.com/upsidedown
I might slow down the chapters on here...
|So, I joined Camp NaNoWriMo this year. I am highly motivated to get half of my Upside Down novel written, if not all of it, by the end of April. However, I need your help to keep it going.
It means such a lot to me; please, take the time to read my Donation page. I'll forever be grateful.
Thank you so much!
(If you are curious about my novel, it's based upon the short story of the same name which won first place in a Writing.com Short Stories contest :D - also, the first chapter of my novel is out on here. Go and read it if you want. It's in my portfolio, loves.)
Please, it would make me the happiest woman!
