What’s coming in March on my Patreon
I’m going to come out and admit it — I’ve been stalling.
There’s a plot arc coming up in Fake-Married to My Billionaire Boss that’s going to be pretty angsty. I’m not a very angsty person so I’ve been psyching myself up for it. Anyway, I’ve finally decided to go for it. So buckle up, friend.
Adding more diversity to your Scrivener name generator
I read somewhere online that authors spend more time browsing baby name sites than parents. I don’t actually know how much time parents spend online looking for baby names, but I can absolutely confirm that I spend a lot of time on baby name sites. There are fewer sites for Filipino names, but they’re there. And if you live here, you know that a lot of Filipinos these days have Western names anyway.
TWITCH Livestream: Scrivener for Romance Writing (18 February 2023)
I’m doing a livestream to talk about using the Scrivener app for writing romance fiction. This includes a 30-minute (ish) demonstration and a Q&A at the end.
You’ll learn how this writing app — used and loved by thousands of authors all over the world — can help boost your creativity, increase your output, and achieve your writing goals.
Counting my words with Scrivener
One of the parts of being an author I’ve always struggled with was productivity in terms of word count. I’ve accepted the fact that I’m a slow writer. It’s fine! I just need to spend more time writing, is all.
Because I’m kinda dumb sometimes, it never occurred to me to keep track of my word count and maybe set word count goals. I knew I could do this on Scrivener, the writing software I’ve had since fricking 2014 and which I love dearly (I’m not even exaggerating), but I’ve never used the word count features properly until last month.
Revisiting old spaces
I have a Tumblr account I hardly use. I think about it once in a while but I never made plans for what to do with it. It’s work having to maintain social media sites and because of the current Twitter meltdown, I’m already on two new ones I have yet to post on.
I just posted the final chapter of Unmasking Mr. Darcy on Radish. It clocks in at almost 83,000 words and 46 chapters.

How (and Why) I Organize My Manuscript With Scrivener
Listen, I tried. Even though I wrote my first book writing by the seat of my pants (a.k.a. pantsing, a.k.a. discovery writing), it did seem like plotting a book before I start writing would be an efficient way to go about the business. And who doesn’t want to save time, right?
