Finding Balance

Like the Jedi knight, every writer has to find balance in their lives. That can be especially difficult if we have to juggle a day job or a family that often keeps us away from the desk. Sometimes that can make us feel as if we are unable to make any progress. Or we are … Continue reading Finding Balance

Camp Nano and Writing Update

I just wanted to give you a quick update on my Camp Nano experience. My goal was to write 20 k words for my romantic crime novel “Murder and Pumpkin Spice”, and it was not hard for me to reach that goal. I finished a week early, which shows me that I have become a … Continue reading Camp Nano and Writing Update

My Bulletjournal

If you’re not a full-time writer, you need a functioning system to plan your writing process. With all the other tasks you have in your life, it may otherwise just fall short. At least, that is the case for me. I’m a person who likes to plan their days and weeks in advance, simply because … Continue reading My Bulletjournal

Writing Update December 2020

I have to say that I love December as a writing month and I would love it even more if we had some snow as I find it so inspiring when the world turns white.

My NaNoWriMo 2020 Experience

How to keep going

First, I have to say that my motivation to write comes from the inside as I believe is the case for many writers. Not writing is not an option for me and hasn’t been for a long time. Still, it is sometimes difficult to find the courage to sit down in front of my laptop … Continue reading How to keep going

Writing Update September 2020

All in all August has been a great month for writing. It wasn’t that hot anymore and there was rain and thunderstorms, which always inspires me. I have finally decided to publish “Der dreizehnte Prinz” and I have also found a cover designer that I absolutely love and whose covers are very much what I’ve … Continue reading Writing Update September 2020

Taking Time

Time management is something I’m constantly struggling with. That is probably the case for most writers who have another job as well or are moms and dads. Despite having a job I like and a family, I see writing as one of the most important things in my life and there is a reason for … Continue reading Taking Time
