Work in progress
I recently found out that my cousin, Zoë De Backer, started writing stories on Wattpad.
I did a bit of research about this platform and it turns out that you can easily join Wattpad and read and write stuff for free.
One of the cool things about this platform is that you can publish parts of your story as it develops and let other readers/writers comment to help improve your story.
So I decided to join Wattpad and share a new story, titled 'Hotel Clearview'.
You see, it is something I started writing a while ago and I would LOVE some feedback.
So, please, feel free to join Wattpad, read my story and let me know what you think.
I have already added the first two parts and will regularly update and add new parts.
If you have any comments, questions or suggestions about the story, the characters or the writing, just leave a comment. It's as easy as that :)
You can find 'Hotel Clearview' here: www.wattpad.com/user/SophiaCobbs
If you are interested in the stories my cousin is writing: www.wattpad.com/user/blauwtje12589
Hope to hear from you soon!
Nanowrimo, here I come!
As you might have noticed, my brilliant plan against procrastination didn't really work...
Fortunately there is something that always helps me push myself to write.
And that is Nanowrimo.
For those of you who have never heard of Nanowrimo before, I will explain it.
It is an online event that encourages people to write a novel in 30 days.
Every November thousands and thousands of people pledge themselves to write 50000 words, starting on November 1st and ending on November 30th.
The really great thing about it, is the entire community of fellow writers. Some will soar to 50000 words by November 15. Others will make it just in time, five minutes to midnight on November 30th. And some will not make it at all.
But during that whole month you feel like you are part of an amazing group of people all struggling with the same problems: not feeling very inspirational some days or fighting with characters having a mind of their own (it happens, some characters are just to willful and do or say things that the writer didn't plan - at all).
So if you have a story in you but you can't seem to find the time to get it on paper, this might just be the thing for you.
It has helped me write my first book (which was published in 2017), has pushed me to write my second book (still in the editing phase on that one) and is now inspiring me to start my third book.
I wonder how far I will get this time...
I'll keep you up to date of my Nanowrimo adventure :)
Starting a new writing habit
I am the Queen of Procrastination!
So, to help me kick that habit, I am starting a new one.
From now on I will select a weekly writing prompt and see where it takes me.
All results will be put on this website.
I hope you enjoy them!
My first Blog Tour
My first blog tour is happening next week!
Several bloggers will be commenting on my book so I’m very curious about what they will say.
I have also done an interview with one of them. Very cool! At least that’s what I think :)
I will keep you posted about all of them on Facebook and Twitter (yes, it has happened, I’ve joined Twitter).
See you soon!
As promised here are the links for the ebook version of my book.
And it’s also available on iTunes!
Hope you all enjoy it :)

Jippie! My first batch of books has arrived.
Just in time too. The official launch date is tomorrow!
You can’t believe how happy I was to open that box and find my own book staring back at me.
I reached out my hand and ran my fingers over the cover. So smooth...
Can’t wait to set up a table at my Launch Party and make a small but fashionable pile :)
I’ve got a venue!
Yes, the venue I was hoping for has just confirmed!
The Launch Party will be held at Baravins in Gent on Sunday 17th of December from 4pm until 6pm.
Invitations will follow soon.
The official online Launch Date is still December 1st so anyone who can’t make it to the party will be able to order a book online from that day on.
No worries :)
Now it’s time to make some invitations...
See you soon!
Busy, busy, busy
So, the Launch date of my new book has been set: December 1st!
Write it down :)
In preparation I've started this website so I can keep all of you up to date. Of course I will keep in touch through Facebook as well.
I am also am scouring venues for the Launch Party.
Invitations will be sent as soon as I have a location and the owner of said location agrees on the date.
More news to follow!
