The golden hour

Have you found it yet, cause I sure haven’t! Knowing that I’m a writer who still has a full time and demanding job, when should I write ? I have absolutely no clue I know that I like writing or my creative juices at night, like after midnight whem rhe woeld is asleep, but I…

What have I gotten myself into

I got the third installment of my book feedback this evening. More and more slowly I’m starting to feel the panic. I’m noticing more bad than good on these pages I receive from my editor (still, he is an awesome guy), it’s just me! I’m the problem. I’m the writer that created these issues and…

Things to work on

A few days ago I explained how I received the first chunk of feedback from my editor and how I was so excited. Well that excitement has suppressed and the panic set in. Earlier at work I decided to go back through that feedback and set up a list of core things that I will…

The verdict is in

So I got the first part of my book back from my editor… Boy was it a lot!! I have a lot of work to Do! And yet I’m just excited !! My editor sent me 25 pages of feedback for the 40 pages o sent him to read! The feedback is definitely needed and…

Story beyond the story

I like many people am not perfect. I struggle with life daily. Sometimes I feel like my life is a choice based video game that is timed. As I’ve gotten older I am now a firm believer that certain things that are put in your life when you are young, are meant to be there…

Funny story…

I have always been raised around multiple cultures, and I have loved every minute of it. As Americans it seems like most of us seem to forget the rest of the world exists and not everything is about us. And more times than not we come off as those snobby assholes who think we are…

Now we wait …

The time has come. That first draft of Kaneji has been sent to my editor, and now I wait. Anyone who has ever dealt with rejection can understand how it feels to be held on suspense about something they worked hard for. What if all your hopes and dreams aren’t as good as you’d like…

Taking over my life 

Blogging and hiring people is taking over my life, and I’m not quite sure it’s a problem.  It’s a funny thing when you begin a new life venture while still trying to maintain everything else in your life. For me right now that blogging, hiring designers, marketing myself, and getting Kaneji: A curious world unknown…

Marketing and advertising 

I must admit I’m totally lost when it comes to these concepts! Blog and create an author fb page, but what else. Do i need my own whole website ? Should I be getting a Twitter? I’m almost tempted to hire a team because I have no clue what I’m doing. Problem with that is…

The person behind the screen 

I’m not quite sure how I have let myself have this blog for a few weeks without telling everyone about myself at the very least who I am ! That is just insane. So here I am to rectify the problem. First let’s start out with my name, Alexa.  Yes like the Amazon echo. That…

Support

This post isn’t necessarily about my book, better yet it’s about the people you have in your corner supporting you in anything you do. Whether you want to try a new recipe, take a new class, or start investing, you need a support system. These are going to be the people who help push you…

Writing for you even if you dont know what you want.

So I’m in the process of going through my own work for the upteenth time and i always have an urge to start changing stuff. Sometime its a good thing and sometimes you’re not quite sure. But here is my question to you, are you changing things in your work to make it better or…
