I’ve set a date! July 1, 2019. The day that The Witches of Belle River (draft 1) will be completed.

Writing a book is hard, there’s a lot of different components to it and one of those is deadlines. I’ve been hacking away at this story since late 2016, painstakingly unravelling this plot until it even resembles an actual story, and realistically, I could probably continue to plod along but it’s time to set a date and work towards it.

I’m not musical in any way. I can’t sing very well and I can’t play an instrument. I did try to learn to play the drums for a year in primary school but it really didn’t stick. Despite my musical inabilities, I love music so much.

Music was always a part of my household when I was growing up and the appreciation for music that I learnt as a kid has followed me into adulthood.

My writing is fuelled by music. I have always created playlists to accompany my writing because I need it for inspiration. Writing The Witches of Belle River has been no different.

Hello! Another mini hiatus unfortunately befell my little blog, but 2019 is a new year and a new chance to keep this machine running!

I want to keep writing reviews here, plus some new posts about writing that I have planned but I also want to give a nice quick mention to my Instagram account. I really think Instagram is a fantastic way to engage and becuase so many people already use it, it seems smart to be active on it!

Well, I know I’m a little late to the party (only by 4 years) but following the hype of the Netflix movie (much deserved) I finally picked up To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before…. AND OH MY GOD.

Listen, I’m a sucker for romance (hello, I’m Amy, the biggest hopeless romantic on planet Earth!) and this one just sucked me right in.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a YA romance novel by Jenny Han. The book follows Lara Jean Song Covey who writes a letter to every boy she’s loved before (duh).  View Full Post

On October 23rd, I’m going to be catching a plane from Australia to Bali! I never thought I’d be heading to Bali this year but when the opportunity to go to the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival came up, I jumped at the chance.

The Festival, in its 15th year of running, is located in Ubud, a little way outside of Denpasar and calls itself ‘an annual pilgrimage for lovers of literature and conversation’.

To say I am excited is an understatement.
