    The Interrogation Tag

    Hello everyone! Recently, Olivia at Important Nothings and I came up with questions to ask Emma at Real and Official Matters. She turned it into a tag, which is why I’m doing it now! Thanks for the tag, Olivia! Get to Know Me What are 3-5 little-known facts about yourself? Even though I love people and sometimes seem outgoing, I don’t like crowds or talking to more than a couple of people at once. I have broken every bone in my left arm and my right femur. Also, I’m pretty sure I broke my toe (right foot, next to my pinky toe), because it doesn’t bend anymore. Lovely, right? I read…

    camp nano update // week three + an announcement

    Week Three of Camp Nano (and July) is over! Can y’all believe it? It’s crazy to me that July is almost over and we’ll be starting school again. I am not completely enthusiastic about that… I mean, summer! I’m not ready for it to be over. But when I see the new school books I can’t help but be a little bit excited. Anyhow, I’m here to bring you this week’s writing update, not to ramble on and on about summer. Saturday, July 15: This was kind of a crazy day because we had a birthday party and I had a blog post due… which didn’t get published until Sunday…

    Beautiful People #26

    Hello, folks! It’s time yet again for Beautiful People, and *gasps* it’s not about my characters. It’s about me. Hey, hey, calm down. Don’t run screaming into the sunset yet. This wasn’t my idea. It was *ahem* these people (Cait and Sky, I’m looking at you). So don’t get mad at me, okay? Okay. Now that we’re not so furious about not being able to see into my characters’ lives (you have calmed down, right?… Right??), let’s look at the questions. How do you decide which project to work on? Hahaha. I don’t. An idea pops into my head and nags me until I write it down. So, my projects…

    camp nano update // week two

    I’m back, with another Nano update! Sorry this was a day late, but the weekend was busy. This week was fairly good for writing, and I upped my goal (again) to 16,000 words. My current word count is 6,786 words and according to the Nanowrimo website I’m right on track to finish by the end of July. Here’s my daily word counts. Saturday, July 8: 571 words. Sunday, July 9: 519 words. Monday, July 10: 838 words!!! The most words I’ve written in one day so far! 😀 Tuesday, July 11: 540 words. Went a bit over my word count goal, but it was harder to write because it was Cow Day…

    camp nano update // week one

    Hello all! Today I’m bring you an update on my Camp Nano progress. It’s been interesting so far, and I was lucky enough to be invited to a great cabin. I actually am making progress on my Snow White retelling, so that’s good. I’m still sworn to secrecy by my ultra-secret writing organization (if I told you I’d have to lock you up) not sharing details about my retelling yet, so this may or may not be a dull post. My writing goal for the month is currently 14,000 words, although I keep changing it. Compulsively. It’s weird. I’ll probably change it to 15,000 after I finish writing this post.…

    June // featuring assorted memories

    June was kind of a strange month. I had a lot of plans, but some of them didn’t happen due to unforeseen illness – almost all month. And some of us still have it… So basically, we’ve hardly gone anywhere for three weeks. *sighs* I had a bunch of spare time at home until I got sick, so I was extremely productive for two weeks or so, and then I didn’t quite feel like it. Luckily I’m feeling better now, and hopefully back to my normal, productive self. You should see my to-do-list for today. I ran out of room. 😉 Anyway, I’m not in the mood to do an ordinary recap today…
