My Experience with Hurricanes + Reading / Vlog

Welcome to another vlog post on Write with Fey.

Hurricane season started on June 1st, so I thought it would be appropriate to share two videos I did for Hurricane Crimes. The first is about my experience with hurricanes. And the second is a short reading from Hurricane Crimes.

My Writer's Backstory / Vlog + Tara Tyler's Windy Hollow Release Day!

Hi, everyone!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I have something different for you. I've been making and posting videos on my YouTube channel, and I just got the brilliant idea to post some of those videos directly on my blog as posts. *face palm* I will mix a few older fun or informative vlogs with new ones and try to put up vlog posts 2-3 times a month here on Write with Fey.

I've been trying to find some way to make blogging (for me) more fun. Ever since my worst case of depression a couple of years ago, blogging hasn't been the same for me. Then BAM! I got this idea (moments ago from typing this), and I think this may motivate me. I do really enjoy creating my YouTube videos, so this just may be the answer. Or, at least, a step.

(NEW RELEASE) The Missing Alphabet (A Gregory Green Adventure Series) by Elaine Kaye

Chrys Fey: Many of you know by now that my mom (Elaine Kaye) publishes picture books. Helping her do this has been so much fun. I love seeing the characters I grew up with finally coming out into the world for others (children and adults alike) to get to know.

You may have read about how the teddy bear in A Gregory Green Adventure Series is based after a Cabbage Patch Doll named Sammy. He was my brother's, but everyone loved him.

Writer’s Burnout Part 9 (Patience)




The paper alphabet letters in Gregory Green’s classroom have gone missing, and it’s up to him and his friends to find those missing letters. They go on a hunt through the school, hoping to find them. They spot letters next to things that start with those letters, like B for Bananas in the cafeteria. But will they be able to find the entire alphabet?

The Missing Alphabet is a great story for children learning to associate letters with objects, and four activities throughout the book will further help children to get familiar with the alphabet.

What is writer’s burnout?

Burnout is very different from writer’s block. It’s worse. Writer’s burnout is something you feel deep down…bone-deep. It’s just like when athletes burnout from working themselves too hard and too much for too long. They can lose their love of the sport, physically and mentally. You can get writer's burnout from doing anything related to being an author.

More Tips to Help You START Reversing Writer’s Burnout:

If you’re worried that you may never write again, you’re actually in a good place.

Why do I say that?
