Story Bibles: A Writer's Reference
This summer hasn't been as productive as I've wanted it to be, in regards to my writing. I've stared at pages, editing sessions have resulted in scratched sentences and forgotten. I reluctantly had to step away and rethink how to best tackle my stories again. So, I began writing Story Bibles. What is a story bible you ask? They're fun.
Critiques: Worst Part Of Editing
Your writing is done. You've made some dents in editing your work. Now you want some feedback. Are you ready for it?
Editing: A Dreadful Process
Congratulations! You have finally completed your story. You've gone through torrential brain storming, being tortured by the blinking cursor and surprise late night writing sessions. It's time to edit. Shit!
Writer's Block Is A Bitch
You're at your desk or on your bed. You're in the zone. The words are flowing quickly on the paper or screen. As you end your sentence, you draw a blank. You stare off into space. Your feet tapping away at the floor. Ferociously, your gnawing at your pen. Nothing comes to mind anymore. What the hell! You've developed writer's block. So how do you overcome it?
I believe, if you were to ask any creative writer (professional or amateur), the one thing they want to get perfect when creating a story, is dialogue.

My writing process
For me, writing is therapeutic. With all the crap that occurs during the day, I can just sit and begin analyzing what interesting things happened during the day and turn it into a story.
I'm just a girl, sitting in front of you all and I feel your writing pain.
