Snow Go Away

Hello everyone! It's been a rough day for me. I've just been really tired and not up to much. I did get a few things accomplished but not nearly as much as I had hoped to! Oh well, it's break, and after next week I'm going to be busy again.

I haven't started reading more over my book. I decided to not rush through the reading and take my time. I'm still considering what will be the best approach from the first book into the second book. So, as soon as I'm done rereading, I'm going to get back to the second book. :)

So hopefully you all enjoyed the little link I had in my last blog post! :) I thought those were some really pretty pictures. My plan is to keep including links that I believe are interesting. I found this article: Stephen King on Writing: Throw Out Your Thesaurus! I thought it was interesting and made a good point. :) That's it for now!

Check out this great deal!

Awesome News!

Hello everyone! I have two pieces of good news. The first is that my grades came in and I got all good grades. Second, my book is officially done being edited! I shall make another blog post and share his link in that one. He was really thorough and put a lot of comments into why he changed things.

Which makes me super excited! I personally don't remember every single English rule, many people don't, so it's nice to have a fresh pair of eyes catch what is wrong. So far it just looks like comma's are my enemy. :) I'll accept that! I'm planning on tomorrow, if my day doesn't get filled with plans, to read my book and see the edits that need to be addressed.

So my other two story ideas are going to have to be on the backburner. I'm half tempted to write on 20 lines with those stories just so I can get a little bit done. I'll mull it over and decide if that will be best. Sadly when college starts up again I'll be busy. Hopefully I can really get ahead in order to be a little less stressed. I believe that's it for tonight. I'm going to (hopefully) have a longer post tomorrow! Have a good night!


Also, on stumble upon, I found this really cool link. Check out these amazing 29 photos!

Back on Track!

Hello everyone! I ended up binge watching Grey's Anatomy yesterday and today. And playing a lot of minecraft. I haven't felt the best so it was nice to relax. Also I have found my document of my second book. My slow tablet didn't reassure my stress. But, now it's online, so I can access it easier.

I'm planning on doing some reading tonight. It's been at least a month of the book sitting so that's good! I'm also planning on changing some of the plot. I probably won't start editing right away (other than the little things that I find) because I don't want to rash change the book. A previous book I wrote I went a bit too quickly without thinking about the plot.

I'm also thinking about 2 books to work on after I'm done with the trilogy. The first being a remake of the previously mentioned rash book. It's going to be a complete remake with a few of the key characters. The other book is going to be more of a sci fi book. Yeah, I know writing in three different genres is risky as a beginning writer, but at least all of them will have a strong action base. :)

Alright, I'm going to go back to cleaning up. I'm going to be doing laundry tomorrow as well. So, once I get a small area cleaned up, and then will start reading. :) Also, I heard back from my editor and I don't think it'll be too long until I'll get my new version back! :D So I believe that's all for tonight! Have a good night. :)

Offically Free

Hello everyone! I already have missed a day of writing a new blog post. I had to help Ryan get prepped for his final last night. He had his today and thinks he did pretty good. I've already have gotten most of the information for two of my classes! It would appear that I'm going to get some good grades! I'm happy considering how much I had to do this term.

So, I haven't gotten back into my writing yet. I think tomorrow I'm going to locate where my writing for the second book is. It must be on my tablet. So, as soon as I do find it, I'm going to get it backed up and start writing again! It feels weird to finally be able to write and not have to worry about papers!

Alright, I believe that's it for the night. The only other thing I have is that I'm considering getting a logo/social media design from Fiverr. Otherwise I just need to keep focused on my writing so I can get a lot accomplished before break ends. :) Have a good night!

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in nearly a week. I've been busy with college activities and lots of studying. At least my flute recital and band concert went well! :) I had two tests yesterday and a presentation (plus turning in a paper) for today. Plus I went running around for a bit with my mom and grandma so that helped me relax a bit.

So, now that I'm on break, I plan on writing. Now I was originally planning on writing the third book. However, my editor just gave me an awesome title or my first book, and I got thinking. My second book has been sitting for a while and I'm not super content with it. But, I just got an idea of a section I'm going to take out and fix up a bit, so that way my new book title for the second book will work. And I wasn't really happy with the amount of courtship scenes to begin with.

Well I know this wasn't a long post. I'm sort of anxious to write so I think I'm going to shift gears and start working on that. After I take my very dry contacts out (which are currently annoying me) so I can focus better. I plan on having more updates soon and they should be more in-depth. So please keep following for updates and I hope you have a lovely night!

Only 6 more days

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't gotten around to a new blog post. I actually have a good amount to update on for once! So, lets get to it. :)

So, on Monday I watched the movie "John Wick". It's a pretty good movie. It's got a long of action and also keeps a good pace. But, if bloody movies aren't your thing, then you might get a bit squeamish. I also watched "Kill the Messenger" which I thought was another good movie. It was based off a true story. Now, watching these two movies back to back might make you a bit paranoid, because there were a few points where I was thinking that the plot was different. Whoops! haha

Activites and college are going pretty well. I actually got a bit busier with some volunteering and assignments. And, it'll be my last night of band tomorrow for the term. Then all I need to do is my flute recital and band concert on Valentines day!

Alright, so you're probably wondering "Are you even still writing?" Yes. Yes I am. I decided Monday night that I would write for 25 minutes before focusing on other things. An hour later and 3,000+ words confirms that I didn't get as much done. But it was a lot of fun to write that much! :D I am restraining myself until next Tuesday night. Then I'm going to binge on writing. And I'll get ahead with my assignments so, when I start next term, I can write a bit as well.

Last thing is that I did happen to find a short term advertising so I can get more page views to the blog. I've certainly gotten quite a bit. My ultimate hope is that, you lovely paid viewers, will stick around and keep checking out my blog! :) Also, it's my 4 year anniversary with my boyfriend! We won't be doing anything until next Thursday when he's done with his tests. :) Have a good night!

A Little Writing

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been on. I've been busy writing 13 pages for two different academic papers. I still have one more paper plus the interview left plus my two tests. The main thing keeping me moving forward this term is the two week break so I can write!

I did write a little bit last night. I'm thinking I might skip ahead to another section. I'm moving a bit slow right now. However, I did think of a good idea on how to revamp a previous book. Granted, it'll be after I get done writing this series. :)

Also, I went to a flute master class this morning. With a master class, the musician will generally listen to a few other musicians (such as students), and then give them advice on how to improve. I was not one of the students up there (which I'm grateful for) but I still learned a lot. My recital will be next Saturday (I haven't mentioned this before because it would have been hard to perform in Brazil!). I'm nervous but more excited to practice my piece. And, hopefully what I learned today, can help me improve my practicing. :D

I think, since I can procrastinate with my interview and last paper, I'm going to write for a bit! :) Also, I'm considering starting up a book review for a fee to do on the side. I will try and get back on track with my blog posting!

Super Quick Post!

Hello everyone! Sadly not much to update on. Other than 99% of the roads in my area not being cleared off. Today I'm pretty sure it was only because of the good weather that cleared up the roads! But, since I'm using my grandma's car, it isn't nearly as bad as what it could be.

I'm still really bummed that I can't write! I'm tempted to start doing some writing this weekend and next week! Haha And still no word from the editor (which is good) otherwise there's 0% chance of me paying attention to finals. Ok, probably 75% but still. Not nearly as productive as I should be!

Speaking of productivity I'm going to get to writing my paper some more. I've gotten a good start on my first paper. Now just need to finish and get started on the other paper! Have a good night!

Super Bowl

Hello everyone! I don't have much to update on at the moment. I went bowling this weekend (eh scores) and watched half of the super bowl. Sadly, for my boyfriend's house, their dish satellite is covered in snow. Oh, and we got soooooooooooooooooo much snow where I live. Blah.

Anyway, I'm counting down the days until my break. I'm absolutely DYING to write! Sadly, I still have two papers I need to write. I'm going to get focused more on that tomorrow. Tonight, I need to do some homework and try to get ahead on homework. Granted, it's already 11pm, but I know I probably won't go to bed for at least an hour.

So the last thing I have to update on is that I've gotten more page views in January than I did in December! That's pretty awesome! I probably won't do that again (considering the month is shorter) but it'll still be fun to try and get up there. You need to keep coming back until I can get my book done and ready to sell! :) Have a good night!
