Thank You, Readers

I will never have reached where I am today without my readers. From those who avidly chase chapter after chapter, speculate to no ends, suggest pointers for improvement or ways to make my writing more dramatic; to enthusiastic, silently supportive ones who are the first to read and leave a vote and never complain when I’m late updating; to the silent readers who add me to their reading lists and follow me from project to project. They are my life line and my motivation. I would never churn out as many words and works as I do now if not for them.

Which is why I wish to do my bit to thank them. There isn’t much I can do — I’m not a published writer, I don’t have many connections, I can’t make graphics to save my life, but I do bake great cakes. Which is why I wish to promote my followers or books they like.

Starting from today (well, last week) for the foreseeable future, any followers of mine are welcome to drop me a PM or post on my wall their works or works they have read that deserve more reads, and I will give it a shout-out to my 6k+ followers in hopes they will reach the attention they deserve.

If I get my butt organised, I’ll also post on my Facebook wall and do a blog post for them, too, depending on real-life workload.

Want your work promoted? PM me on Wattpad.

What’s this, you ask?

None other than @VictoriaMoschou ‘s Happily Never After story collection. There’s no happiness there; she’s killed them all.

Plotting: Rise of the Vengeful Dragon (Part 1)

Ah, plotting. The bane of my life. And the joy of some writers. I hate plotting, but I need to know where to go when I’m writing, so I definitely need it. Initial skeleton-drawing is fairly easy, but it’s the branching out that’s so much harder. The roots are easy to take hold. The trunk grows without much trouble. Branches and leaves require the sacrifice of several internal organs before they form.

A few people in the past have asked me how I plot. I haven’t found my own style of plotting yet and have experimented with different ways of plotting over the past few novels I have written. So here it is: how I plotted Rise of the Vengeful Dragon.

To plot RotVD, initially named ‘Essence of Gisella’ as a starting chapter for a story contest, I looked to this, on PublishingCrawl: how to write a synopsis.

Book Review: A Witchling’s Rites by DistantDreamer

13784675-368-k45099My latest addiction has been “A Witchling’s Rites” by Monica Sanz (AKA DistantDreamer), a fantasy adventure centering on Seraphina Dovetail, a hot-headed, talented, but cursed seventh child who finds herself in the midst of a literal witch hunt/purge by radicals.

So this story, still on-going, is to blame for me not sleeping till 1:30am. It’s fast-paced, the characters are interesting and realistic, and so vivid. From the school to the winter setting in to the docks, I see, hear, and smell everything.

Recently I completed reading Indigo, a NaNoWriMo2013 project by Kelsey Ryan/Skyhuntress on Wattpad. It follows the story of a lone, unusual hero called Athira, who spends most of her time acting as a vigilante whilst going after the source of the unusual disturbances in the world of Thols.

Contains spoilers (duh).
