Pantsing versus plotting. This topic comes up a lot in the writing world.

Let’s start with what these two terms mean. Pantsing refers to jumping into a novel without having a plan for what will happen (writing by the seat of your pants), whereas plotting is all about, you guessed it, plotting your novel and going in with a good idea of what will happen.

A lot of writers pick one side or the other. You can be a plotter or a pantser, but I think finding the balance of both can really be the key to writing successfully.

I’ve hit the 30k mark, I repeat, I have hit the 30k mark!

Wooohoo, writing progress! I have finally written 30,000 words for my beloved The Witches of Belle River. Recently I have been super productive with my writing, thanks to a few different writing incentives I have implemented. I’m trying to write 2,000 words a week, which may seem low for some people, but considering the writer’s block wormhole I’ve been in for the last few months, this has been a great start.  View Full Post

For one of my university classes, I decided to write a companion novella for my main novel ‘The Witches of Belle River’. It is a novella titled ‘Shadow Man’!

This companion novel is set in the same universe as ‘The Witches of Belle River’, and deals with a similar situation but in a very different way. The story follows Hugh Kavinsky, a psychic living in New York City and really focuses on Hugh returning to normal life after being possessed for six years by a spirit. So far, Shadow Man has been really fun to write and I love the themes of guilt and healing that are being explored in it.
