Good, you’re here. I’m Mandy Wallace, and this is where I write about writing. If you’re ready for a lifestyle upgrade, see the list of services.
A Little About Me
INTJ + HSP female. It’s a complicated merger. I love to write. I collect books. I love to dance. Girls on bikes are pretty amazing. And when I listen to Dubstep, I’m pretty sure I can take over the world.
My Writing Philosophy
The muse is a fickle bitch. Don’t rely on her. Writing is its own reward, but I still want to publish. I believe in show up, shut up, and write—even if the words suck. I believe in skills over talent, tenacity over luck, and habit over willpower. If you sit down at the same time everyday and write, eventually you’ll finish.
What to Expect from Upcoming Articles
I’m focused 100% on launching a writing career in fiction. The problem is, every story I’ve written sucked. It’s time to get serious.
I’ll show you where my stories failed, so you can avoid the stumble. I’ll break down The Greats, from The Odyssey to The Goblet of Fire, so we can steal their techniques. You’ll be the first to get the writing tricks I learn. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look as I write “Rapture in Glass,” my science fiction short destined for Writers of the Future. Read more about my Writers of the Future mission.
