Get ready. I’m about to ask you the hardest question in the universe. This single question has stumped mankind for centuries. It has left high school students speechless and college students sobbing with regret. Prepare yourself. Here it comes… How do I know what career is right for me? Are you still standing? Can you breathe ok? Sorry to spring such a heavy question on you like that, but if I held it in any longer, I would explode. Don’t roll your eyes like that. Keeping a powerful question like that inside is dangerous. Trying to answer it is pretty … Continue reading The Hardest Question in Life
Let’s face it. Sometimes we’re just LAZY. It isn’t that we’re too busy with work, school, and leveling up that character on your favorite MMORPG. And it isn’t because we’re so in awe of other writers that our fingers are paralyzed and we can no longer type. We simply choose to put playing games on our phone, browsing YouTube, or taking a nap ahead of writing. Continue reading We Love to Write, So Why Do We Procrastinate?
It’s a new year, and that means new goals, new experiences, and new friends. And it’s new friends I want to take a moment for today. Actually it’s just friends, old or young, that I want to dedicate this post … Continue reading Challenge: Who Are You?
Ever wonder just what I’m doing when I’m writing? I mean, sure, you know that I write, you read what I write, but do you know what that process actually looks like? You probably don’t want to know. There’s a … Continue reading Behind The Scenes
Just what do I do when I’m not writing? I can’t answer that question, because obviously I am always writing. I spend hours and hours in a baggy t-shirt and yoga pants, sipping on a Frappuccino, typing away as endless brilliant thoughts enter my mind. Oh yeah. That’s what I wish my day was like. It’s more like franticly type up a blog post while on lunch break, and try not to get mustard from my soggy sandwich on the keyboard. When I’m not writing, I’m doing all those mundane, everyday things that everyone does: washing mounds of dishes, returning … Continue reading Writing, Yoga Pants, and a Nervous Breakdown
Good morning lovely readers! Not awake yet? You should be. It’s Friday! Friday! Going to… Oh, no. I am not going to get that song stuck in my head. Seriously, that song has ruined the word Friday. And that was … Continue reading Something New on My Blog?
Today’s writing assignment asked us to start our post with a quote. So here it is. (Yep, just like that. No long-winded intro this time). So many books, so little time. ― Frank Zappa That’s so true! The list of books I want to read is as tall as a skyscraper. Or at least that’s how tall I imagine it to be, since I don’t have the actual books to stack. My list is completely digital. Thanks to Goodreads I can keep adding books to my list and not have to worry about tripping on them. Also thanks to Goodreads…I … Continue reading So Many Books, so Little Time
Another week has started and those pesky drill sergeants are at it again. They just have to make Monday more of…well, a Monday with all their assignments. As if I don’t have enough to do already without their added workload. … Continue reading My Writing Secrets (And a Secret I didn’t mean to Share)
I think this ALL the time! I seems like writing comes so much more naturally to everyone else. I mean, Brandon Sanderson can sit and write for 8-10 hours a day and I’m over here trying to keep myself from thinking … Continue reading Writing is Hard, But so is Taking the Ring to Mordor
I was hiding from my bratty stepsister in the attic when I found it. At first I thought it was just a strange stick—as long as a ruler and as thick as a pencil—then I found the book Beginner’s Guide … Continue reading The Wand in the Attic
It was probably a good thing Tomas didn’t know anything about being a cabin boy on an airship, or he would have stayed home, despite the lure of treasure. Even Aunt Belinda’s shrill whining was preferable to Captain’s shouting. “What do you think … Continue reading Treasure
What?! Did I just post two days in a row? Yes dear reader, that did just happen. Now before you get excited and think I’m going to post every day from now on until the end of time (because I know you want to hear from me EVERY single day), I have to warn you that this wont last forever. There is a reason for my sudden motivation, and that reason will only be around a few weeks. What kind of motivation only lasts a few weeks? Blogging 101 and Writing 101 of course. I know what you’re thinking; “You’ve been around for … Continue reading I Blogger, 2 Drill Sergeants, 3 Lists
