"Aspiring writer" sounds to me like a description of someone that wants to write and isn't. It took a long time for me to admit I was a writer, rather than an aspiring one -- it wasn't until I completed my first manuscript that I was finally prepared to own the label. I understand the desire to put a caveat on the front, but if you write, you're a writer. ("Aspiring author" is a whole different kettle of fish, but the answer about writing is still a good one.)

If you're struggling with the draft of your first novel, the most important thing I can tell you is not to overanalyse it too much. It's a truism that all first drafts are kind of rubbish. The glorious thing about this whole process is that once you've written "THE END", you can take a break and then go back to your manuscript with fresh eyes. That's when the real fun of polishing and rearranging and snipping begins.

Well, it's fun for me. YMMV. ;) (less)

One is the sequel to Lucid Dreaming, my adult urban fantasy about dreams and nightmares. The other is a historical fantasy inspired by Ancient Greece. (less)

Review: ‘The Scorpio Races’ by Maggie Stiefvater


It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.


At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

“I wasn't good at this dating business. If that's what we were doing. I wasn't very good at predating either. I'd say I wasn't good at postdating, but I hadn't yet had an opportunity to prove it.”

“I examined my palm; the skin was unbroken and smooth, showing no sign of the burn. It glistened with saliva. I really wanted to wipe it clean against my jeans, but that seemed rude. Of course, he’d just licked me, so maybe his idea of rude was different than mine.”
Cassandra Page, Isla's Inheritance
