My Blog

Skye Knight enjoys sharing her writing journey via her blog, with every intention of releasing a new post with her updates on her site and via her newsletter every week, but more often, it's every month. The blogs share where she's at with what she's working on, her learnings about the process, and what is inspiring (or stumping!) her. Skye looks forward to branching out to share more of her life beyond her writing and to start covering more of her painting life as she dives back into that!

Why I Hate Editing My Own Work

I had a great call with my Write Better Faster coach today about why I always get tripped up on editing and feedback. Some people hate a blank page, and some people hate editing. It often varies because of your strengths. I’m really writing this blog post for myself, so …

Writing Long is Hard! No Writing Short is Hard!

I’m laughing at myself because my writing history is as an English major focused on British works, newspaper reporter and copy desk editor, TV and radio reporter and producer, digital media producer, business strategist, paid media and consumer strategy marketer, and brand strategist. Simplifying down a lot of moves and …

The End

I finished my book! But I so didn’t. So what’s up now? This last haul to complete has been crazy. When I last wrote a blog, I was at the 50% mark, and it was the end of March. April and May were crazy–I had some really good days, but …

What Else Can I Do? H/T Encanto

Y’all my kids have been singing Encanto on repeat. But I never dreamed it was going to help me with my creative endeavors. Lo and behold, about 2 weeks ago, I was deep in research because I had paused my writing when I thought maybe, just maybe, I was bullshitting …

It’s a New Year Baby

You’ll probably see a bit less of me blogging or sending the newsletter, at least through April. I’m hyper-focused on minimizing distractions in my life and doing what matters most to me to achieve my goals. Or if I do post, I’ll try to make it short and to-the-point, a …

Pulling Teeth & No Nonsense

Writing for me lately has been like pulling teeth. I’ve been told time and time again that you can’t wait for your muse. See that time I saw my fave Nora Roberts talk at the Washington Post. You just have to practice BICHOK aka “Butt in Chair, Hands on Keyboard.” …
