Hi, I’m Kara

Welcome to my blog! I’m a 20-something fiction writer and freelance writer.

On this website, I share my experiences and tips I’ve picked up about fiction writing, particularly in the fantasy genre.

I want to help other writers create immersive and believable worlds in their writing.

Want to learn how to build a fantasy world? Take a look at my Fantasy Fiction section.

In ‘real life’, I’m a freelance writer. If you want to learn more about freelance writing and working for yourself, I also post occasional freelance/lifestyle content too so watch out for that.
