Hi, I’m Claire! (That’s me in the photo).

Thank you for stopping by. I’m a writer, blogger, avid reader of Young Adult Adventure Novels(TM), as well as a full-time-job-worker.

What’s the point of this blog?

To put as much writing advice to use as possible in a controlled setting to see what works and what gets kicked to the curb. I say “controlled setting” because I only write in a hermetically sealed laboratory. You have to go through an ozone chamber to get in. So yeah, you can trust me and my scientific method.

What’s actually the point of this blog?

The real point of this blog, which is kind of embarrassing and I hope you don’t tell anyone, is to make myself write, both blog posts and novel chapters. Though I really do want to get to the bottom of all this writer advice! One person says sit on a pea while writing, the other says eat peas while writing, a third says that under no circumstances should peas be involved in writing whatsoever, and frankly, I don’t know who to trust here. So I’m listening to all of them, all the time, and hoping I end up with a coherent book in the end.

Can I talk to you?

Absolutely! Leave comments anywhere you can get your little keys to type. Send me smoke signals, or a well trained city pigeon with a lil note tied to his foot. Do NOT send me any helper monkeys with lil notes tied to their feet, because I’m afraid of monkeys and their tiny people hands.
