    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020

    OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 In April, I participated in the OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 hosted by Book Roast. It’s a reading event that took place during the month of April 2020. The theme lines up with the wizarding world of Harry Potter and it’s about “taking your magical exams” also known as the “O.W.L.s”. This is done by reading a certain type of book for each subject that you would imagine attending. So, what did I actually manage to read for this event and how many “subjects” did I complete? I read a lot of books in April, although not all of them fit the criteria and thus didn’t count…

    What I read in April 2020

    What I read in April 2020 It’s time to find out what I read in April 2020. Let’s wrap up the month and see what books I read, liked, didn’t like and more. I’ll also dive into a few readathons I’ve participated in. Maybe we will even get around to see if I made any progress on my reading challenges in April 2020. First of all, I just want to stress the fact that I don’t see reading as a competition and I do have months where I don’t read anything, and other times where I read a lot of books. It all depends on my mood, my sparetime and…

    Reading plans for May 2020

    Reading plans for May Welcome to my reading plans for May 2020! So, as I have started to get more into readathons, reading challenges and events recently, I though I’d try something new on the blog.

    Ditch the formalities and write!

    Are you a writer or an aspiring author? Do you find it difficult to get started on your story? Maybe you want to make sure that everything looks right from the beginning? Ditch the formalities – and write! I’ve often encountered writers (mostly the unpublished ones), who care an awful lot about ‘doing it properly’. They are asking questions about writing software, formatting their text and other technicalities. Before they have even thought about a plot or a character. Before there is a story to write. Does that sound like you? Maybe this post can help you to just get started on the actual writing. Being correct or making excuses?…

    Research som forfatter – hvad er vigtigt?

    Research din bog – men hvad er vigtigt? Hvis du er forfatter eller godt kan lide at skrive, er du sikkert stødt på et problem i stil med ”hvad tjente en belgisk smed i 1746?”. Hvis du indimellem sidder og tænker ”er det her overhovedet relevant?” kan det her blogindlæg måske hjælpe dig. Jeg er som læser tit stødt på bøger der er rige på detaljer, fordi en forfatter har researchet deres emner. Nogle gange kan det dog også tage overhånd, og plottet forsvinder i detaljer og beskrivelser af autentisk fransk bestik fra 1890. Det er ikke alt læseren har brug for at vide. Men hvordan finder du ud af,…

    How to thank your test-readers

    How to thank your test-readers? If you’re an author or a writer who isn’t published yet, you might be familiar with this situation. Are you unsure of how to properly thank your test-readers for their help? If that’s the case, I’ve got a few suggestions on what you can do. Professional or volunteer? Depending on whether or not the person giving you feedback is a professional, there are different ways to go about it. You can read my blogpost on different types of test-readers and feedback right here. In this blogpost however, I will only be talking about the volunteer help. Professional help and feedback will typically be charged an…
