Monday Motivations; Eliminating Waste
Happy NaNoWriMo everyone, especially those who are choosing to participate this year. Regular readers of this blog may be aware that after a lot of internal debate, pained agonizing over my busy schedule, and possibly against my better judgement, I have decided to go ahead and at least attempt NaNo. With as much on my… Continue reading
The Great Pants Experiment
Hello friends and welcome to another crazy idea from your friendly local writer. I’m your friendly (and struggling) local writer. Happy Last Blog Post Before NaNoWriMo everyone! I hope everyone’s preparations are going well (at least for those of you who are participating) and I am looking forward to cheering everyone on. A few weeks… Continue reading
Loathe as I am to admit it, the post-NaNoWriMo slump got me but good this year. Continue reading
NaNoWriMo 2020 Post-Mortem
Wow okay so it’s been a minute. I had intended on doing a pre-NaNo check in post before I dove headfirst into hell month but I frankly just ran out of time. Then I thought maybe I’ll do a mid-month check in and, well, didn’t have time for that either. In the past I had… Continue reading
Dancing With Disappointment
We writers are no strangers to disappointment. Continue reading
November-Eve Check In
Wow, October flew by fast. Back in September I thought I knew how my fall was going to look. I had a schedule for my NaNo prep, a series of blog posts I wanted to write, a brand new black page notebook (with neon gel pens!) I was saving for my new project. And then…… Continue reading
New Year, New Name, New Goals
Happy New Year everyone, and, for me, personally, it is not a moment too soon. To get personal for just a moment, 2018 — again, for me — sucked ass. And that’s all the looking backwards I will do. Suffice it to say, spoons were in short supply this holiday season and so I made… Continue reading
How Do You Brainstorm?
When I’m feeling stuck for any reason, I’ve found that, for me, the best way to really visualize a scene is to get in bed and pretend to go to sleep. Continue reading
NaNoWriMo Update – Week 4
This week I’ve spent a lot of time grappling with the possibility of failure. Which is, of course, moronic because I broke 40,000 words on Monday and that’s more words than I’ve written toward any manuscript, and 40,000 more words than I had when I started, so it’s impossible, really, to call what I’ve done… Continue reading
NaNoWriMo Update – Week 3
This has nothing to do with the post itself, but I have the distinct feeling that my blog is in it’s pilot season. You know when a show first starts and it hasn’t quite found it’s formula yet? Yeah, that’s my blog right now. Continue reading
Kerry Share’s love for writing started, as it so often does, as a love of reading at an early age. At age 11 she wrote her first short story, a Harry Potter knockoff of dubious quality, and her love for creative expression was born. Throughout her teen years she continued to foster that passion through derivative work, and at 23 she turned her eye to original fiction.
Now in her thirties, having taken a break from creative endeavors to cope with an ever changing life and landscape, she is determined to make her dream of a writing career reality.
