About Ronel Janse van Vuuren
Every day I write down the stories whirling in my head. Whether it is about elephants and imps in the Knysna forest or a teenaged girl who has to save the world, I’m there.
My world revolves around my two Rottweiler boys – they teach me to strive for the perfect day, because today may be the last. The perfect day: laugh, think and cry. Writing makes every day the perfect day.
I love writing about the paranormal and my dogs – usually all-in-one.
In 2017 I hope to finish my YA dark fantasy trilogy I worked on during NaNoWriMo2016 and do all the awesome writing things I did in 2016 (check out December 2016’s posts and my accolades page for clarity).
I blog (https://ronelthemythmaker.wordpress.com/), tweet (@miladyronel), dabble on Google+, pin stuff on Pinterest, have word sprints with fellow writers during NaNoWriMo, take part in the A to Z Challenge blog hop and blogging marathon in April, I share my writing wisdom (well, at least the things I’ve learned through trial-and-error) with the Author Toolbox Blog Hop every third week of the month, I share my writing highs and lows with the Insecure Writer’s Support Group every first Wednesday of the month, and occasionally write on Wattpad (@miladyronel), INK and on writing.com (miladyronel). I also share my book reviews on Goodreads.
Sometimes I feature an extract from my work-in-progress or even a short story in my blog posts. Every second Tuesday I share a flash fiction piece under #TwistedTaleTuesday and I give a behind-the-scenes look at how I wrote it.
I usually update my blog on Sundays, Tuesdays and on Thursdays – the latter being all about folklore, legends and myths for #FolkloreThursday.
