Why I’ve been Neglecting One of my Books…

Out of all 4 of my current books, there’s one that I’ve pretty much been neglecting. So far I have ‘Immunity’ (dystopian horror), ‘The Last of the Missing’ (crime thriller), ‘Imaginary’ (drama) and ‘A Shot in the Dark’ (coming of age romance). One of these books has been ignored and not given much love byContinue reading “Why I’ve been Neglecting One of my Books…”

How Being an Author has Helped me Grow as a Person

Forgive me, but this particular post is going to include a lot of talking about me. However, most of it will apply to other people and other writers. When I started writing my first book at 14, I was an anxious wreck. I was having panic attacks every day, I was very isolated from friendsContinue reading “How Being an Author has Helped me Grow as a Person”

The Stigma against Independent Authors

One question I’ve received a lot since the beginning of my writing career is, which publishing house do I use? And my answer always seems to disappoint people. When I say I use Amazon KDP and Barnes and Noble, people tend to nod a little and look disappointed, as if they were expecting more. ThereContinue reading “The Stigma against Independent Authors”

I truly believe that there is something out there for everyone, and that there’s always something artistic that even theContinue reading “Why Photography is one of the Most Freestyle Arts”

Problems with Writing Fantasy

One of the novels I’m working on currently is defined as low fantasy. This is my first time writing anything in the fantasy genre, so I’ve come across quite a few problems already. These aren’t unique to me, however, as they’re also problems I’ve seen in other fantasy novels and books. So today, I’ll beContinue reading “Problems with Writing Fantasy”

Inspiration from the Arts: A Cure for Artist/Writers Block

One of the key factors in any creative subject is finding inspiration. In a nutshell, inspiration is something that motivates you to draw, write, play music- whatever your medium is. It could give you specific ideas or just motivate you. Either way, it’s an important factor, and the days you lack inspiration can make itContinue reading “Inspiration from the Arts: A Cure for Artist/Writers Block”

Exploring Representation of Eating Disorders in Media

When I say eating disorders, your first thought is likely about anorexia, maybe bulimia. You likely imagine a young, white teenage girl as the sufferer. This is how eating disorders, or EDs, are represented in the media. In books, in films, in TV shows; which there’s hardly any of in the first place. Perhaps theContinue reading “Exploring Representation of Eating Disorders in Media”

How Mental Health can Influence Creative Work

I first became aware of mental health illnesses when I first started secondary school. During those years, I was suffering from social anxiety and depression, although for a long time I didn’t even realise they were real conditions. I also became aware that I was autistic while in secondary school, which helped me realise whyContinue reading “How Mental Health can Influence Creative Work”
