Writing Plans: Why They Can Be Disastrous

writing plans

I really hate to admit this, but writing is a form of art.

Why do I hate to admit this? Well, I don’t like to think of writing as an art because artists of all sorts tend to get into this attitude of laziness.

“It’s art. Art can’t be rushed.”

Most of the time, this is an excuse for laziness. Oh, don’t you dare give me that look. It is, too! “I can’t paint right now – the muse isn’t with me.” THE MUSE ISN’T WITH THOSE EPISODES OF SHERLOCK YOU’RE BINGE-WATCHING, EITHER, SWEETIE.

Tips for Reading

Hi guys! I decided it’d be fun to write a random post today. I know most of you love reading, so this will be right up your alley. Tips about eating! No, wait … reading. Sorry. I’m sick, so I haven’t eaten much today, and eating makes me sick, but I keep thinking there must be something appetizing out there …

Reading is hard. I know, ’cause I have 267 books I want to read (probably over three hundred if I were to add books I want to read just because they’re classics). Will I ever get through all those books? Probably not. I really am going to go through my to-read list on Goodreads someday and delete a good half of them.

But you know how addictive to-read lists can get … you add one, and then you add another, and then you add twenty more, and before you know it you have … *calculates* … twenty-two books on your to-read list. XD

Anyway, on to the post!

February 2017 Dares

Well, it’s time for another round of dares! *shivers* Seriously, though, guys! How time flies! (Wow, I’m a poet! Which … is actually true … unlike most of the stuff I post on this blog … haha, what? I did not just say that …)

Before you sink your juicy whites into this pearly post (wait …), a brief announcement. This will be the only post on Reveries this week, I’m afraid. I need more brain space. ;)Next Monday, however, we’ll resume with our regular schedule.

Now, on to the dares! Well, you know, a recap of last month’s dares, anyway, because obviously you want to end with fresh hopes instead of faded ones … because I seriously fail at everything I tell myself to do here … but anyway! On with the show! Er, post!

Guest Post: Five Secrets to Writing Fantasy

Hi, guys! Today I’m going to be hosting another guest post. I’m really excited to introduce Sarah of Riding for Jesus with her guest post, “Five Secrets to Writing Fantasy.”

five-secrets-to-writing-fantasy

Hello everyone! I’m Sarah, and today Kellyn is letting me do a guest post on …

FIVE SECRETS OF WRITING FANTASY!

I love to write fantasy. It gives me a chance to create a whole new world of elves, dragons, heroes, heroines, brave men and women, amazing creatures … and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.

Arguably, fantasy is one of the best things in this world. But that doesn’t mean writing it is easy. Stories often pop into your mind, and you start … and 15 minutes later … WRITER’S BLOCK appears in flashing lights in your mind. Or you get to the exciting part … and nothing.

I have the same irritating problems, so I scoured my notes and books for some tips, which I now present to you.
