Welcome to My Blog!

>Hello, there, and thanks for stopping by!  If you don’t know me, my name is Tiyana and I’ve decided to start this blog for a few reasons:

  1. as a resource for other aspiring writers;
  2. to discuss writerly (yeah, I made that up) topics with like-minded individuals; and finally
  3. because I can!

I plan on adding lots of links that would be helpful to those looking to learn more about writing or honing their craft.  I am particularly interested in novel-writing in the fantasy and speculative fiction genres, though not all of what will be on my blog will be limited to novels or fantasy and spec fic.  Core storytelling principles and elements are the same no matter what kind of story you write!  Sure, there will be differences in content, style, and length, but I think you’ll find the information on this site useful no matter what your interest in writing is.

Anyhow, that’s all for now.  I can’t wait to get all of those aforementioned links up and start posting some of my thoughts on writing for discussion.  I look forward to hearing from other writers/storytellers out there and learning from your experiences, as well.  Hopefully we can get a good community going here. 🙂 (If not, it’ll be just me talking to myself!  Haha.)

Until next time.
