Where Does Time Go??

 I came back to blogging with the intention of writing at least one post a week. So far... that hasn't panned out and it's the 19th of Feb already. It feels like I just took my Christmas tree down a week ago - that's how fast the time is flying! 

However, in my defence, I have been super busy with my writers' community! We re-opened our doors at the end of January, and it's been non-stop ever since. I've been a little swept up in how amazing the members are doing since joining. Some were with us at the very beginning last year, and some are brand new.

In that whole time, we've had authors jumping out of their comfort zone to join our live sprinting sessions and proving how many words they can get down if they stay focused. We've had people thriving after things they've learned in our masterclasses. Particularly popular was our Newsletter Success class which seemed to get everyone excited about newsletters again! But the thing I love the most is that authors who joined feeling low and undermotivated have got their mojo back after being inside such a warm, supportive community. It's just the most joyful thing to see writers lifting each other up! 

In terms of writing, I have finally managed to get my own mojo back and I'm beginning to work hard on a single dad romance that has been a part of my life since I was fourteen. It never used to be a single dad romance. However, over the years, I stole aspects from the original story thinking it would never get published, so I've had to do a complete overhaul on it. I actually like the new version better. It's coming out with a humour I wasn't aware I possessed, but I'm having fun with writing again and that makes me happy! 


  1. So glad to hear you're having fun! And, I've done that before - stolen parts of other stories, although occasionally it's been unintentional and I've regretted it.

    1. Yeah, I have done it with other stories and wished I hadn't! But this one... it's much better now. Or it will be when I finish with it lol!

    2. Good to hear that things are panning out for you. Your writers' group sounds so supportive. Good luck with your novel - onwards and upwards!

  2. Sometimes a complete overhaul works wonders.
    That's great you are inspiring so many writers write now.

    1. Yeah, it has amazed me for sure!

      And thank you! Although, I think at this point, the authors are doing it more because of each other than me lol x

  3. Hi, Kyra! I'm visiting from the Insecure Writer's Support Group today. The title of your post is something I marvel at every day. The older I get, the faster time goes. Your writers' community sounds awesome. I hope it's continuing to flourish, and I hope you have managed to find some time to write!

IWSG: Performance anxiety

Welcome to the August edition of IWSG, hosted by the amazing Alex J.Cavanaugh ! So, as most of you know by now - because I haven't shut up about it LOL - my first novel, Game On, has been released. The blog tour officially starts next week (YAY!) but I find myself becoming increasingly nervous. A blog tour not only highlights my book, but me. What if people don't like me? What if my guest posts suck, and everyone thinks I'm boring? If I can't engage people in 300 words on a blog, they probably aren't going to pick up my book. And then there's the "what happens next" question. I plan to make Game On into a series, which feels a bit arrogant of me. I don't know how many people are going to like the first book, should I really be planning to keep the series going? So far, Game On has actually been incredibly well received. I've had great reviews, so maybe I shouldn't worry about people not liking it, but what if Book Two isn't as goo

IWSG: Books Sales

IWSG time! I'd like to start by thanking Alex J. Cavanaugh for this fab bloghop, and today in particular, it is just the motivation I need to get me blogging again! Today, I'm talking book sales. Now, I don't really know if there is any kind of "average" amount of books sales when you're an indie author. I don't know what is considered a good amount of book sales per month, or whether I am doing better or worse than others. What I do know, is that I am happy with the amount of books I've sold. I self-published because I want people to read my work - and people are reading it - yay! My concern is - what if the sales stop? I know after a time, everyone's book sales will slow down, but I have this fear that I'll check my sales every couple of weeks to find that nobody cares about reading my books anymore.The dreaded 0 will show on my Kindle sales, and I will plummet into a pit of despair. It hasn't happened yet, but Game On has onl

First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest

Yay, it's blogfest time! Many thanks to Danielle and Jackie for hosting! Here are the details: Share your 1 st FIGHT and 1 st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s. Crack open your current project or dive back into an old one. We want to feel what your characters feel. From the sting of their first fist-to-the-face to the tingling taste of their first kiss. Today is First Fight day, and I wanted to bring you a small excerpt from my NaNo novel which centres around Jesse Shaw, one of the characters from Game On. It's a bit rough, and a bit vague - mainly because I wrote it quickly, Jesse's voice still needs work, and this fight in full would be packed with spoilers, but hopefully it gives enough info to make sense!   Just to clear up a small thing - Georgia is Isabelle's twin sister. :)   ** “Izzy,” I said. “You know the right thing to do.” Isabelle looked down at me with those big brown eyes, and my insides twisted with guilt. Right away, I realised
