Writing Haven

By Erin MacLeod

Welcome to Writing Haven! Here I'm going to share short stories, answer questions, and keep everyone up to date on my writing and publication journey. Hope to see you in the comments!

 

Welcome Back!

It's been almost a year and a half, but I'm back and with news! I'm officially self-publishing Haven in 2021 on KDP and with Lightning...

Blocked and Moving On

I have a confession to make. I've been blocked these last few weeks. Not just because I couldn't get any writing done, but because my...

A Much Anticipated Point

Today I reached a point in my writing that I've been waiting for since I started writing the Fae Queen's Court. Like, this is the scene,...

A World of Building Part Two

I had a lot of fun designing the Fae. Obviously, I tried to stay true to the legends I was drawing inspiration from and there is an...

So, despite my best efforts, I have missed another two weeks. I do have an excuse, but since I always have an excuse I'll leave it be. In...

Adverbs and Strong Writing

We've all heard lecture upon lecture about the evils of adverbs. How they're a sign of weak writing and we should do everything in our...

Writing Vs. Work Vs. Hobbies Vs...

As I've stated before, I'm an accountant. I work full-time at a local private airport from 9-6 (with an hour off for lunch) and study for...

Beta Reading

So, there is a reason this post is two weeks late and for once it's not kitten related. I'm moving this Friday. Admittedly, it's only...

Synopsis More Like Synopesis

Honestly, writing a synopsis was harder than writing OR editing Haven. I wasn't sure how to do it because I am famously bad at...

Hired an Editor!

So, there is a reason this post is four days late. Ron, adorable as he is, is also quite the trouble maker. For reasons known only to...

Meet and Greet!

An overenthusiastic kitten stepped on my keyboard and deleted my first draft, so for the second time allow me to introduce: Danielle(Dani...

Editing and Re-writing

I finished the first draft of Haven over two years ago. Once I got over the overwhelming sense of pride for having produced something...

The Fae Queen's Court

Hello again! Last week I promised I was going to discuss my original trilogy: the Fae Queen's Court. Long story short, this series came...

Introduction and How This Works

Hello, So I thought I'd give having a blog another try. We'll see how this goes, as I have two failed blogs behind me and a kitten...
