This post is the last part of this story, a look back to time when I actually began drafting my WIP – and how I got involved with real writing, not just thinking about it or writing demo chapters out of nowehere.Continue reading
After the active August, my first hike in September came after two weeks of break on 14th. But I made it count.Continue reading
Today, I’m looking back to 2015 and my first attempts at actual writing. Considering all that had to happen before I got to this point, it still feels strange to reflect on what was probably the breaking point for me.Continue reading
Since I’ve had good results with finding beta readers on betareader.io, I’ve decided to write a review of this webtool – maybe someone will find it as useful as I did.
Note: this article/guide was written in 2019. The appearance of some elements probably changed since. As I established a small circle of beta readers afterward, I haven’t been checking the site as much since 2020. Feel free to report any outdated information in the comment section if you do use the site.Continue reading
The Slovakian ‘Malá Fatra’ mountain range is a place where I’ve walked most of the main trails and a good deal of the side trails – and I still love to return there.Continue reading

A few times, I’ve promised a look back on how I got to writing. The time for my grand confession has come. Today, I’ll share the first part of this story: a look back to the 2000s, when the first ideas for my in-development story came to be; into a time when actual writing was still a distant future I did not even dare to see.Continue reading
Despite having poor luck on any kind of giveaways, I had entered one for a professional beta read of my current draft. With a twist of luck, just as I managed to find beta readers (I talked about it in my monthly ‘report’), I actually won – leading me to think how I might handle feedback from four sources, each with different pacing and approach. At the end of the previous month (Friday 30.8.), I’ve received the report file – but as I was preparing for the next day’s hike, actually looking on it had to wait for two days. So, what is a professional’s opinion on my story?Continue reading
