November Book Wrap Up.

Okay let’s ignore how late this book wrap is, because it’s… uh, midway through December already and I’m just getting around to writing this post about the books I’ve read last month, but whatever. November was chaotic. I completed NaNoWriMo, I read a bunch, and I powered through a lot of life admin so that […]

November Goals.

And so I’m settling in for another Berlin winter. Last winter was tumultuous and kinda miserable, but this winter I’m more excited for getting cosy with friends and letting my introvert rule with lots of time spent at home enjoying my own company. Here’s what I’m planning in my diary for November.

October Book Wrap Up.

I’M BAAAACK. If you’ve read my last few book wrap ups you’d have seen me lamenting the fact that I haven’t been reading much and I’ve been behind on my goals, but this month I’ve absolutely smashed it. Turns out I just needed some colder weather to encourage me to burn through my reading list. […]

How to edit your novel using Fictionary.

When I finished writing my novel, Brew Books, I knew there was a HUGE task of editing in front of me. Honestly, where do you even start? When you’re staring at that big, messy manuscript, I bet you’re wondering, how do you possibly edit a novel? Are there any secret tips and tricks for editing […]

How I got picked up by Wattpad.

Most people know I’ve always wanted to be an author, for as long as I can remember. I’ve written stories my whole life and it’s always been my dream to make a living from the words I write. But making money from writing is a gruelling business. So while I’m still working towards the goal […]

New York, New York.

Sometimes I just use this blog as a way to look back on my trips and keep track of my photos, so here are some snaps from my time in NYC.

October Goals.

October is all crisp golden leaves, crunchy underfoot, and vibrant pink sunsets above the Berlin skyline, and jumpers and scarves and pulling my coat out from storage. It’s the start of staying in and finding more time to read, and write, and consume content (and by that I mean binge Netflix shows with no guilt), […]

September Book Wrap Up.

I read for pleasure and to relax, but at the moment I’m feeling stressed by how little I’ve been reading lately, which is the complete opposite of what should be happening. At the beginning of the year I set myself a goal to read 60 books in 2018 and for the first half of the […]

Meet the characters in my novel.

If you’ve been around this blog for a moment, you might have heard me going on about this novel I’ve written. While I was writing, I found it pretty helpful to visualise the characters I was writing about. I found some inspirational images on Pinterest to help me imagine the characters in the book. The […]

August Book Wrap Up.

I’ve really slowed down on my reading in the last few months which is annoying because I am a few books behind target for the year (I’m aiming to read 60 books this year). But I’m hoping I’ll be able to make that up when it gets a little colder. I’ve just got back from […]

Pink skies over Cabarita Beach.

The East coast of Australia has some of the most beautiful sunsets. The sun sets behind you as you look out to sea, and as it does, the sky in front of you is lit up in bursts of pinks and oranges. I caught a few sunsets at Cabarita Beach in Northern New South Wales […]
