School is well under way, Canadian Thanksgiving is behind us, and Halloween is on the horizon. The boys are dressing up like ninja warriors. They're excited about it so we're excited too.
Fall can be a somewhat depressing season. It's the prelude to winter, after all. The darkness, the rain, the falling leaves, the intense, crisp air... But I see it as a transitional season, a season for change. The boys were not the only ones starting school this September. I decided to take a creative writing course as part of my self-care plan. It's like the ultimate 'writer's block' busting tool! I'm really enjoying it and I'm honing my critique skills at the same time.
This month I am featuring my own writing. I realized, as a relatively new and unknown author, I should post more of my own writing. If potential readers liked my writing samples, then perhaps they would buy my book. It seemed like a more attractive alternative to constantly screaming on social media, "Buy my book!" In all seriousness, if you like paranormal romance, you should read Dream Hunter. :)
Cynthia’s dreams are so real, they are actually coming true – complete with the prerequisite dream guy. But things are not as they seem. Who said dreams are sweet?
Every Friday in October, I will post a new, original writing sample. Here's what I've posted so far.
I love hosting guests on my blog so, in November, I will have some special visitors! Stay tuned for Natasha Blackthorne, Cherie Nicholls, Devika Fernando, Robin Badillo, and Kiru Taye.
Who knows what the future holds? I am always looking to the future, having fun making plans. In addition to the next two months of scheduled blogs, I'm working on a prequel to Dream Hunter, a short story, and I possibly have a non-fiction piece in the works.
As always, happy reading and happy writing! And don't forget to take care of yourself during this season of change.
