Life currently


Having a chai latte each day is nice. I volunteer at save the children mondays and tuesdays. Then I have university thursdays and fridays. On thursday it is the professional writing and editing unit. On Fridays its the popular literature and science fiction unit that I take. Hopefully I can get used to this. It’s started to be like this the past week so I have a few months to get through. I get to visit my mum and my cat on thursday nights. I have not been able to add much to the blog lately.

I offer editing and proofreading services. Please send me an email or a facebook message if you are interested,

Announcement 10: December 2017


Wow it’s been another year! So much has happened since I last made an announcement. There are a few things I’d like to mention in this announcement.

Firstly, Trail of Crystal Waters is now published! It’s a short story so It’s not exactly a novel. I am using it to try out amazon kindle. I am still unsure how well it will fair being on the internet. I meant to have it submitted to a short story competition but most of the 2017 writing competitions for speculative/science fiction have already finished! If it doesn’t go well on Kindle I might just take it off after a month or two. It really depends on whether people think it’s worth $4 per read.

Secondly, I am writing a novel now. Portals of Edris is the title. It’s pretty much a fantasy novel. I have written about four pages so far. Each of the pages have a subtitle. Once I have it at about 20 pages I am considering posting the prologue as an excerpt.

Thirdly, I will be working on “The Adventures of Madame Sophelia”. This will feature my cat as the main character. Please feel free to look at the page which in the main menu. This will show posts related to the Children’s book. The main posts will be deleted if I decide to submit the children’s book to a publisher.

Lastly, I will be busy looking for writing opportunities for 2018. I hope to add to the publications page for each successful publication. Australia has a few literary magazines and I am eager to write fiction and nonfiction to be published.

I would greatly appreciate if people comment or give suggestions. For the weekly posts I am looking for some writing prompts to get my creative juices flowing.

It’s nearly Christmas! Wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. Light the menorah too! I will most likely post another announcement in the first week of January once New Years has passed. Best Wishes for the New Year!

Mistakes and Maladies


Well I guess I’ve made a few mistakes lately. I nearly deleted my blog and I keep posting when I should be writing things down on paper. It’s not serious but I’m glad I stopped before it was a bigger mistake.

I also nearly spoiled the Doctor Who series for people. I’m anticipating the next series too but I may have let my excited fester for too long. I don’t want the series to loose fans.

If I get sick of having a blog I can always just delete it. I’m the one who has to make to decision in the end.

Mentally and emotionally I’m feeling down so it’s best not to post for a couple weeks. I’ll be writing on paper and word documents instead

Light bulb moments

when inspiration finds you


I really enjoy having light bulb moments. Those fleeting moments of inspiration and motivation. You’ve got to hang onto it long enough to find great things to write about. For me, these moments could hopefully be more often, unfortunately. I do have them though which is good. Don’t want to always have writer’s block.

Having experience writing is probably good, even if it’s just more frequent rather than based on quality. The more I write, the more thrilling and motivated I’ll be to continue writing hopefully.

Light bulb moments might just be me taking nice photos and accompanying them with writing segments, maybe make some memories and practice poetry. Any advice would be wonderful too, so feel free to leave responses once in awhile.

Best wishes, Ariana Rose
