"Daily tidbits from a daily typist. Follow along for all things literary, lifestyle, and quote-worthy."
My uncle and I have started a new tradition where each Saturday we have a quick phone call to catch up on the writing we've done over the past week. It's time to share resources, tips, and the stories we're working on. To kick off our calls, I shared with him some of the tools in my literary tool kit and I thought I would share them today on the blog. This post isn't sponsored, but each of the resources I mention I've either tried and love or want to try.
I recently had the pleasure of submitting and seeing a personal essay of mine, entitled "A Plate Away", published in Textile, an Ontario literary magazine. It was an honour to see my work among so many other talented creatives in Issue II: Space(s). I was given the opportunity to record a reading of my essay with Matt Rappolt, a producer for Midtown Radio, and I wanted to share my piece today. Visit the link to read along to "A Plate Away" and listen to the recording below. Thanks for listening!
My first blog post is fitting as I battled a strong bout of writer's block before finally putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to write this. I was inspired to frame my first post around writer's block when I received a lovely message in my Wattpad inbox. Someone who read one of my novels, Breaking the Ice, wanted to know what I do when I'm faced with writer's block or feel stuck in my writing. We had a great conversation and I thought I would share some of my experiences and tips here, so thank you again to that person for starting this conversation.
