The greatest escape and other stories

A collection of Medium articles from August...

I’ve been blogging over at Medium for a few months now (check out what I wrote about in June) Instead of cross posting each and every article, I thought I’d do a monthly wrap up of what I’ve been writing about. It’s a round up of writing advice, motivational stories, slices of life and novel excerpts.

On writing

Did you ever wish you could fly? On writing a character with wings

The Wonder of Creation: An evolutionary approach to world-building

The race to the finish line: Getting to the end of a writing project.

Are your books suffering from too much white space? Don’t forget to situate your characters in time and space

Welcome to my world: Three stages to world-building

The crucial mindset for editing your book: Getting into the right zone

Fiction inspirations

Like a bolt of lightening: when inspiration strikes without warning

The enduring allure of my first love: Why I write YA fantasy fiction

On reading

Books: The greatest escape

I’ll have my coffee with a book, thanks: Take a book + Leave a book = the perfect exchange

Life lessons

The oft-overlooked privilege of showering at home: valuable lessons from a bathroom renovation

Vanquish that to-do list: 8 steps to prioritising for the overwhelmed

Valuable advice: Some things are worth waiting for. Life lessons from my garden

Do you have the courage to continue: It’s what sets us apart

No wonder August felt busy! Enjoy these–meanwhile, I’m going back to drafting some fiction…

PS: if you enjoy any of these articles, make sure you clap for them. You can even applause (up to 50 claps) for articles you really like. This helps Medium to show the article to other readers on the platform. So you’d be doing me a favour, and other readers too! Thank you.
