    Preptober Day 19/2021

    Afternoon tea - an important part of my writing ritual.

    WRITING RITUALS. That is the somewhat ambiguous topic for Day 19 of #InstaWrimo. I mean, it could either relate to writing about rituals, or the rituals we create around our writing.  Although I write about rituals in my Ulfrheim stories, I can’t really share anything about them right now, so…

    DANG! TODAY is #InstaWrimo Day 18 and we’re going to talk a little about time travel. Let me kick this one off by saying I almost always dislike time travelling in storytelling. And here’s why… Time travel is so often used as a deus ex machina device in stories. It seems…

    INSTAWRIMO Day 17 and we’re talking about our deepest desires in true Lucifer fashion. But it’s not actually our own desires we’re going to look at, but that/those of our MCs. Yep, today’s prompt is: – Your MCs deepest desire. I’ve chosen to show you Horse’s deepest desire, because it’s…

    SERENDIPITY. Yep, it’s InstaWrimo time again and today’s prompt is: – Your favourite word. It’s easy to feel bogged down in life, and that has been especially true under this pandemic. But every so often I feel a little jolt of joy at the thought of how incredibly lucky I…

    IT’s INSTAWRIMO time again and today’s prompt for the NaNoWriMo challenge is: – Dreams & nigthmares This is going to be a relatively short post, because spoilers, but I think this is a good opportunity to talk a little about Edda’s inner turmoil. The main character (MC) in the Ulfrheim…

    INSTAWRIMO DAY 14 is here, and I’m kinda chuffed to have made it through two whole weeks of daily blogging. That doesn’t happen very often. Today’s prompt for the NaNoWriMo #InstaWrimo challenge is: If your novel were a meme. Well, as you can see above, if my Ulfrheim sagas were a…

    IT’S DIALOGUE TIME in the NaNoWriMo #InstaWrimo challenge. So let’s start with a confession: I hate writing dialogue!  One of my best friends is a talented playwright. She says the reason she chose to write for stage and screen was that she found it easier to write dialogue than prose.…

    WELCOME to my bedroom. My imaginary one, that is. We’re talking about where we write today, and for me the answer is in my bed as that’s where I spend 99% of my time. But let’s rewind the tape a bit and see how I got here. I’m a 50…

    WRITING BUDDIES is today’s prompt in the #InstaWrimo challenge, so let’s talk about this rare, but richly rewarding, partnership. A writing buddy is like a unicorn. We believe they exist, but most of us haven’t actually seen one up close. Yet we’re hoping one will cross our path one day.…

    LET’S TALK about oopsies and writing today. I mean, seeing as it is the prompt of the day and all… I want to take this moment to dish out a little nugget of writing advice. But let me preface it by saying that this advice only applies to you if…
