"Writing romantic fiction is the second chance that loved ones denied us."

Shannon L. Alder (via maxkirin)


"Secret to writing a bestseller: You write. You stop dreaming of writing. You stop talking about writing. Stop wishing you were writing. And you write."

Jonathan Gunson (via writingquotes)


"The hard part of writing isn’t scribbling words on a page. The hard part is scribbling words that mean something, that make sense, that build a narrative or lay out an argument, that construct a scene or articulate a position. It’s not about how many pages you can cover with ink in a day. In some cases, a good day’s work might be a couple of good paragraphs. But if those two paragraphs are right, then they’re a lot more valuable than ten or twenty pages of idle burbling."

Writing Quote – Nancy Kress


"

Carry the book you’re writing in your imagination, but keep your mouth closed. That way, nothing that belongs to the book will escape—no image will fade from overexposure, no dialogue will become rote, and no idea will lose its full impact.

Sealed in its original container—your head—your work will retain all its freshness and flavor.

"

"Writing a book is easy. Writing a *good* book is hard. It’s like shitting out a typewriter one painful, jagged mechanical part at a time."

What I’m reading:

A Game of Thrones by George Martin. I LOVE the show and since I got this book as a Christmas present, I might as well read it! So far, its very much like the show and I like it, of course. However, the amount of detail written about the world is a little too much.



Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light. I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night -Sarah Williams

I live in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city to a land I can proudly call my own. I wake to the soft morning glow streaming through my blinds and to the sweet singing of the birds tending to their young in nests of safety and comfort. A family like my own.
I am a hopeless romantic who hopes that someday, my own prince charming will come riding on the back of a white stallion and share with me a love so strong that "it can move the sun and all the other stars". I am an aspiring writer and currently working on my first novel.
This is the blog of a bibliophile, only one of millions in our world, and I can't wait to share my literary adventures with you.
