writing is hard
Monday Motivations; Conquering Indecision
Hello friends and welcome to another wobbly week of writing. Lately I’ve been struggling with indecision. Writing has, admittedly, been on the back burner while I adjust to my new workload and day job expectations. Though every night I climb into bed and brainstorm or fantasize about the shape my story will take, I have… Continue reading
How Do You Middle?
Hello friends and welcome to another sagging edition of Just Another Struggling Writer. I’m just another struggling writer. Friends, I had an epiphany last night: the reason I fail so often to finish drafts, the reason I bounce from project to project is because… I absolutely fucking suck at middles. Can We Skip to the… Continue reading
WIP Wednesday; Routine Roulette
Hello friends and welcome back to that corner of the internet where I cry about my current WIP. Friends, fellow writers, I come to you on the first day of a new routine. Again, Kerry? You say. Yes. Again. I’m not a morning person. Given my druthers, my day would start at around 10:00 am… Continue reading
Monday Motivations; It’s Gonna Be…
Hello everyone and welcome to another wily week of writing. I am pleased to be back after some high anxiety (even for me) completely derailed me last week. Thanks universe! But there’s no use crying over spilled mental illness. Today, it’s back in the saddle. After all, it’s not just a new week but a… Continue reading
WIP Wednesday; Coming Around to Advice I Once Abhored
Hello friends! I am grateful to be back after a sudden but violent head cold knocked me on my ass earlier this week. Unfortunately, however, my convalescence means that I don’t have much in the way of updates as far as my WIP is concerned. So, why am I here? Well, because I recognize that… Continue reading
WIP Wednesday; The Eff It Stage
Hello friends and welcome back to your regularly scheduled edition of WIP Wednesday, where I vent my spleen about my current writing project. And currently I am, to put it colorfully, fucking miserable. More specifically, I’m feeling really creatively frustrated. I’m caught between the knowledge that if I start drafting before I’ve satisfied my worldbuilding… Continue reading
Monday Motivations; Writing is Exercising
Hello everyone and welcome to another wobbly week of writing. Friends, I’ll be honest. I’m having a hard time thinking about writing today. Which feels weird, because normally it’s the primary subject in my brain, but for some reason… I’m just not feeling it today. In fact, just typing up this blog post feels like… Continue reading
Abandoning Self-Rejection and Taking Up Gardening Instead
Hello friends and welcome to another inner-edited edition of Just Another Struggling Writer. I’m just another struggling writer. One of my most annoying traits as a writer is that I do my best brainstorming when I’m lying in bed trying to go to sleep. Due to my insomnia I am very aware of not looking… Continue reading
WIP Wednesday; Running a Marathon When You Want to Sprint
Hello friends and welcome back to the corner of the internet where I cry about my current work-in-progress. It’s been kind of an up-and-down week. Despite being completely sure last week that I wasn’t ready to start drafting, on Saturday, in a fit of pique, I accidentally did just that. I told myself I would… Continue reading
Shareable Saturday; Wisely Starting With a Map
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Shareable Saturday, where I share my favorite writing resources. Last week I shared with you guys a worksheet I created to outline scenes for your novel. This week I’m bringing you a hidden gem that every fantasy writer will want in their back pocket. A Visual Component… 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.
