About Me

Hello there :) I am Paola Crespo. I’m a Young Adult Fantasy/Sci-Fi writer, and published poet with a degree in Writing and a minor in French.

Ever since I learned how to read, I have been constantly eating up books— quite literally. I still have the bite-marked toddler books to prove it. Well-written, thought-provoking narratives are what I live for: be it novels, poems, television shows, films and all other forms of art.

You can usually find me roaming the aisles of a bookstore, binge-watching my latest show on Netflix, or eating chocolate. Also, I am probably a part of all the fandoms: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Mortal Instruments, video games (The Legend of Zelda was my childhood, okay?), anime, superheroes (Iron Man is my boy), Doctor Who, you name it. If you want to geek out, I’m your girl.

Writing & Rewriting is my outlet to share my thoughts, stories, and writing tips that I’ve collected through my writing experience. I hope to connect with other writers as we all journey toward this crazy thing called a Career in Writing. (hint: it takes a lot of writing and rewriting.)

I hope this blog can be a place where people feel comfortable to talk about our love for writing and to share any and all advice or stories about their writing experience.

Feel free to ask me any questions or just drop by to chat about all things writing, literature and/or geekdom. You can also follow me on twitter.

    Hi Helen :)
    Thank you. Yay fantasy! haha
    Do you have a twitter account? I couldn’t find a link or anything on your blog. I would love to connect with you there too.

      Hi Paola, so sorry I just saw this! I’m not on Twitter, I’ve resisted so far but think perhaps I will give in soon :-) I think I’m just not sure what to tweet about…

        It’s okay! Twitter is a great way to meet new people and form a writing community. It’s how I primarily discover new blogs. I learn new things about the craft of writing from writing tip tweets and links to writing articles. It’s also a great way to market yourself (as a writer) and your work. Not to mention, It’s fun! :D I highly recommend it. You could start out observing others and then figure out what your voice and tweets will be about :)
