Getting Organised to Write

Yep…pretty much needed this. If anyone out there is a writer, this is a good post to look into 🙂

organise-to-writeThis year I thought I would try and get a bit more organised with writing. Below are a few templates to help sketch an outline and to keep track of important dates. My writing process leans toward ‘flying by the seat of your pants’. I do a bit of outlining to help keep on track and to act as a reminder. You are welcome to use these templates for your own writing process. I hope you find them useful.

Keeping Track

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation

This is something I want to work on. Let’s all spread kindness and serve others 🙂

I also recommend checking out the Reach Out website for more ideas.

Kindness is something that…

I decided to make this post because I see  a lot of people pirating books. It hurts authors a lot and it really isn’t necessary. I was recently reading Victoria Aveyard’s tumblr blog and I saw a lot of fans justifying this practice. (Apparently there are people who spend time typing up ENTIRE manuscripts to post on Wattpad!!!) There are so many ways to make book buying affordable and legal ! I recognize I’m a 25 year old college graduate who makes more money than most people my age. So yes, I am able to buy a lot of books on impulse. However, it wasn’t always like this. I thought it would be helpful to share ways to keep up with your reading habits without spending a lot of money…all while keeping it legal! *Note: Sadly, most of this will only apply to North American readers but some do apply to…
