Looking Rejection In The Face

Let's face it, writing is a hobby that makes us naturally susceptible to rejection. Sure, there are the writers like Jack Gilbert, who published world-renowned poetry and then disappeared for years at a time before coming out with his next piece of writing. Or writers like Walt Whitman, who stood against the boundaries set by…

Roleplaying As Our Characters

Hi! My name is Flair, and I'm a half-human-half-Centri (A Centri is a type of... 'alien,' as you Earth folk call creatures from other galaxies).

I've been meaning to do this post for a long time, but one thing was stopping me. There are actually a lot of posts that I've meant to do and haven't because one question was stuck in my head: What makes me qualified to write this?  None of my works have been published, I don't…

My Writing Problems

I've felt lost as a writer recently, and I hope that talking about it will help. Here are some of my many writing problems: . I've grown impatient. I wrote a 23,000-word novella in one week, edited the whole draft twice the following day, and had ten beta readers lined up just hours afterward. While…

How I Write So Much

I've had people ask me how I write so much. Generally, I write around 2,000 words a day, but on a good writing day I can get up to 6,000. I try to write every day, which would make my average writing week 14,000 words. According to these numbers, that would mean that I write…
