The Perfectly Imperfect Bunch

Never knowing what to say,

plagues me in so many ways,

especially upon the page,

occasionally leading to outrage,

more often than not, honestly,

a cursed voodoo prophecy?

or a frustrated writer wannabe?

a little of both, possibly…

ok, mostly just the latter,

and too much on my platter,

dreams of success shatter,

does that really even matter?

when all is ‘said’ and done…

but I haven’t ‘said’ one

word of relevance since I begun,

so the curse, or frustration, won,

does that mean I lose?

or haven’t paid my dues,

who gets to choose?

how much is enough to defuse,

this wretched mind being confused,

nothing is ever enough,

no path is too rough,

or choice too tough,

to end the curse or give life up,

so, the battle rages on,

from sunset to dawn,

until the curse is gone,

and words are spawned,

upon the page…

Then you come to realise that you will need to decide a place where the murder takes place (like a city or a town or a hovel), you need a map that shows you the major roads and the most important landmarks in that city/town/hovel (because you’d like readers to feel like they are in the Alps), you need to know the…

Mistakes Every Writer Makes

Yep. I’ve done it. Everyone of them. Still do…

Mandi Lynn: Author & YouTube Personality

We’ve all been new writers at some point. Or maybe you’re a new writer now. If that’s the case then start taking notes, because today I’m going to talk about the things you shouldn’t be doing and what you’re going to do to avoid making that mistake again. Even if you’re a writing pro, there’s always more to learn. And if you’ve already learned your lessons, well then today you’re just going to look back and cringe at all the mistakes you may have made when you were a budding writer.
