Any Book Review Bloggers?

Hey everyone, I'm looking for people who are willing to write a book review of my novella, Dear Jackson. If you're interested (and have a blog, of course), let me know through WritersBloK's contact page and I'll send you a free, PDF copy of the book. Happy writing (and reading, I hope!), Carynn

Powerful Language

I haven't done many posts on the art of writing itself recently, so I decided to post about something I genuinely love about writing: Portraying emotions through fantasy characters, and in doing so connect to the reader so they can live the emotions through said characters. It's magical, isn't it? Being able to put words…

Destroying Writers Block

Sometimes, Writers Block is really bad. Notice that I capitalized it? That's because it's a monster of entirely its own species. It feeds on writer's weaknesses and keeps their dreams from becoming a reality. But who is the culprit? If Writers Block isn't a physical being, what is it? It's you. Maybe you're bored with a…

Looking Rejection In The Face

Let's face it, writing is a hobby that makes us naturally susceptible to rejection.

Clichés: Pros and Cons

Clichés are a common thing that writers try to stay clear of- but what is it that makes them so bad? In this post, I'll be going over some pros and cons to help you decide to what extent you must avoid these reader-judged expressions and plotlines. Before I get onto the pros and cons,…
