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!

“Lean on meWhen you’re not strongAnd I’ll be your friendI’ll help you carry on…” Sing with me now! We all know the good ole classic “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers. Although many will tell you writing is a solitary career, I’ve found that having a good support system is …

Finding My Way – Pt. 1

One of the biggest things I’ve learned in 7.5 years of writing fiction regularly is that there is no one way to do this. Everyone has tons of advice, just like when you’re having a baby for the first time. But ultimately, you have to figure out what is going …

I am a full-time writer. Wow. Did I just say that? For those of you who don’t know… it’s terrifying. When you’ve been working in the corporate world for your whole adult life/15+ years, deciding not to keep on the corporate track, to take a swing and follow your dream, …
