I could not be more excited to share this interview with you all. I attended an incredible writing conference "When Worlds Collide" in Calgary, this past August. There were so many fantastic speakers present.

So, I was thrilled when I reached out to one of the speakers that truly resonated with me, and inspired some changes to my own writing process. 

Please give a very warm welcome to S.G. Wong. Gr...

What kills your dream of writing a book? Of finishing a first draft? 

Fear of failure? Fear of not being "good enough"? 

That "fear" you're feeling is crap. It's you making an excuse of why you can't do something... I know, because I used to do that. I ran from what I was born to do for a long time, I pursued a career down a path that would leave me empty, while still knowledgeable, it didn't fulfill...

Creating space that lets the creativity bubble over, fill your soul and pour onto the page is super important. Now, I don’t mean running out and dropping thousands of dollars onto decor, remodelling and the newest laptop. It’s important that you craft your writing space and allow it to suit your creative needs. 

First up - decide on a theme you want or style that speaks to you. For me, I kept it the...

Let’s look at Goal Setting & Writing - specifically surrounding NaNoWriMo. 

First up, let’s take a look at the basic idea of NaNoWriMo is to build a habit over the course of 30 days, by writing 50,000 words of a first draft for a novel - reinforces itself over those 30 days as building a habit, where you write 1667 words / day. 

Building a habit can take anywhere from 21-30 days to really engrain int...

I was lucky enough to hear PJ Vernon do some panel discussions at the "When Worlds Collide" Writers conference in Calgary this last summer. The event is incredible... the presenters make well it worth the incredible value of the tickets.  

So, when I asked PJ if he would like to take part in the "Meet The Author" interview series... and he said "Yes".... Well, I was over the moon, and read...

Writing a novel in a month can be daunting, terrifying & utterly nerve wracking. November is that wonderful time of the year you want to chase that dream of writing a book, or at least the first 50,000 words on a first draft. 

Easy, right? Thats only 1667 words per day... Well when you take into account all the activities you have on a daily basis, and throwing in a new routine for 30 days...

First off... I have a confession - I LOVE Fall.

Easily my favourite season - the smells, the weather, the clothes, the drinks... it's just PERFECT. My creativity sky rockets in the Fall and Spring.  Fall tops the list though - so when I came across this Fall Writing Tag - I knew it would be something fun to take part in.

Please welcome, the inspiring and amazing author Danika Stone. I've been lucky enough to read two of her books this year, and it's fair to say I've already become a fan for life. It's rare you connect with someones writing, especially an author who lives not far from where you call home. I was beyond thrilled when she agreed to take part in the "Meet The Author" interview series.

So, let's dive in a...

You work hard, keep your eye on the prize and just grind.

Don't worry about not having a group that "gets" you right away... your Tribe will find you. 

When the time is right, you'll know... everything else will fall away and it will all click into place.

Meeting Samantha less than two months ago, we've forged an immediate connection. She's a brilliant writer, an amazing person and is one-third o...

I've followed Alexandra's journey for just over a year, and in that time have had nothing but total respect and inspiration from her. A talented writer, creator and podcaster. She continues to inspire me with her ambition and mad baking skills. Seriously though... the cupcakes are delicious. 

Take a minute and devour her interview.
