Weekly (or Daily, or Hourly!) Writing Prompts

By Jennifer Bowen on Saturday, October 8th, 2016 in BookHive Corp, Novels, Writing, Young Adult. No Comments

When I first began writing regularly, I didn’t necessarily think of myself as a “writer.” I thought of myself as someone who liked to write, but never someone who would try to make a career out it it. Since then, I have written one full-length YA novel, about 17-year-old Mason Radley who develops schizophrenia when […]

By Jennifer Bowen on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

I met Gabrielle Glancy in middle school when I had to call her ‘Ms. Glancy’ and she was my English teacher for a semester in Northern California. As of late, I have noticed she has been publishing up a storm, and in my opinion, doing a great job of getting the word out about her […]

Day 25 of the 100 Day Writing Challenge

By Jennifer Bowen on Tuesday, May 31st, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

Dusty must filtered with green. …lapping for warm air, gliding over the crushed figure of a discarded surgical glove. The draft as he spoke, scalded and cheap. Just some of the lines I’m working with as I continue to work my way through 100 days. My goal when I started, or more accurately when we […]

So, I’m sitting here…ten days in and I am sweating. My mind is jumbled, my heart is racing and I have to remind myself to breathe. What has me so tied up? I am in the midst of a 100 days project and I have writers block. We’ve all heard of Morning Pages and 30-60-90 […]

Writer’s Block: How To Crack It

By Jennifer Bowen on Monday, March 14th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

I’m writing this blog post selfishly, as I am suffering from Writer’s Block. It’s now moved into Phase Two, which I could penn as ‘Writer’s Malaise” or “Writer’s I-Feel-Sorry-For-Myself.” I used to be prolific, people! This was an adjective I heard often from others describing my writing. I had a strong, almost effortless work ethic. […]

Giving Up My To-Do Lists: Three Months Later

By Jennifer Bowen on Saturday, January 30th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

I gave up my to-do lists three months ago. I wrote about that decision here. Paralyzed by my perfectionist approach with BookHive, workaholic tendencies, and staggered by my third failed IVF attempt — I was in a desirous state to let go. I discovered pretty instant results. Maybe I had a sense of the treacherous […]

My mother met Kate Waite last year and first told me about her inspirational story which resulted in her writing the book Beauty Unfolding which was published by Morgan James last year. Personally, I’ve been reading the book and have found a lot of nuggets of wisdom. My interview below with Kate covers her process, […]
