6 Writing Tips by Victoria Moschou

Victoria Moschou is a book reviewer, blogger (Victorious Pages on WordPress), writer (VictoriaMoschou on Wattpad), and winner of the Ruined Childhoods contest hosted by Christine Bottas (Nyhterides) and I. They say the expert in anything was once a beginner, and I totally agree on that! Of course, I can’t say that I’m an expert on writing…

Boo-Yah, Camp NaNoWriMo

27 days and 25,000 words later, I have completed Camp NaNoWriMo April 2017. My first ever NaNo camp! *throws confetti* 25k words is manageable. I normally write about 15k words per month, so this was me sitting down a few more sessions and repeating that. It meant Rune Mage has a few more chapters under its…

I was proud to be part of JessicaBFry’s team for RSKovach’s Decameron. My entry, “The God of Light” went up yesterday. And it was the hardest piece I’d ever written.

Biting off More than I can Chew

I entered Fantasy Community‘s last Halloween challenge with probably a minute to spare… I think. They said 11:59pm but no time zone, so I gave it a try. Halloween is when the veil between ours and theirs get thin, and our hero us intent to bring thr scariest story back to his neighbourhood. Check out…

The Paper Magician trilogy by Charlie N. Holmberg

I read “The Paper Magician”, the trilogy, about a month and a half back. I’m not usually a steampunk or Victorian fiction fan, but I do love fantasy and magic and I bought the eBook when the first in the series was free. My memories of the books’ events are a bit hazy now we’re…
