Making Time for Writing

Making time for writing… that might very well be the hardest part of being a writer. For me, it’s hard to make time simply because so much other stuff is going on around me. Just like the photo, lol. More than that, I also have other things, non-writing things, that take up a lot of my time. With all that going on in my life (and I’m sure your life too… unless I’m the only busy person in the world…), how is anyone supposed to get “non-urgent” things like writing done?

Two Blog Awards

Sorry guys, but saying y’all just reminded me of this…

Hey, y’all!

Maggie from Dreaming of Guatemala has nominated me for two blog awards/tags over the past month. Be sure to check out her blog because she has been putting out some great posts that I know you’ll love. (What? Don’t love it? LOVE IT NOW OR YOU WILL DIE.) Maggie, I have to apologize… I’m sorry for taking so long to get to these awards.

BUT! To these awards, I have finally come and I hope you all enjoy reading the answers and/or writing your own post!

Reblog: My Offical Title is Book Dragon

Once upon a time, people who liked to read a lot were called “book worms,” and the notion formed around this phrase that habitual readers were extremely shy and introverted, of course wore very thick glasses, never were seen anywhere without a book in hand, and were naturally clumsy and socially awkward and should be […]

Summer Time Is Here!

My school is out! Yay! Joy to the world! Sorrow!

Okay, I’m not going to miss my Biology quizzes, but I will miss my textbook. I won’t miss the last day before submitting an essay, but I will miss the research. I shall not miss– um, yeah, okay, I liked everything about Anthropology. I shall not miss the business and lack of time, but I shall miss the learning! Annnnnd the structured schedule. And my professors. Annnnd my group mates.

Okay, okay. The truth has come out. *sniffles* I like school. I shall miss thee, school! Farewell, my treasured friend! Until this fall when we meet again!

Annnnnnd I’m terrible at old English. Eek.

However, in the absence of school work, I will have plenty of time to work on my stories. Or so I think. Because I also have… plenty of other things to take up my time to. Lol. Continue reading “Summer Time Is Here!”

A Great Big Thank You

Hey everyone,

I wanted to say thank you so much for all the comments and support you have me during the A to Z challenge. You all have shown me so much love, and I was often too busy to show any love back. Yet you all kept staying there for me… it’s impossible to explain how much that means to me. Thank you. Thank you soooooooo much.

I’ve learned my lesson… that’s for sure. Never ever do Camp NaNo while doing the A to Z  Blogging Challenge while trying to keep up with the Goodreads reading challenge while writing three capstone papers again. Never ever. Lol.

I’m going to start catching up on all the comments I haven’t replied to yet. If it’s on my blog, I promise I’ll respond. I’m also going to start going back through your guys’ blogs and catching up on all the awesomeness I missed.

Again, guys, thank you. Thank you so, so much.

Another quick note… May is National Foster Care Month. So, with each post this month, I’m going to include a quote about adoption or foster care. 😉

There are no unwanted children

U: Unify

Have you ever seen those unification scenes in movies? Where the fighting, bickering main characters finally get it together with their team and you finally know that everything is going to be okay? An example:

Yes. I am using Guardians of the Galaxy as an example cuz Vol. 2 comes out soon. 😉

The fact is… when this scene happens in the movie… everybody knows that everything is going to work out just fine. Ya know what I’m talking about?

Now the question is… how do you do this in writing? And, actually, do you even want to do it?

For example, maybe you’re writing a story where you don’t want everyone to know that it’s going to be okay until… it’s okay. (That is soooo me. Make you think that everyone’s going to die until… everyone dies. Or survives. You gotta wait to the end. :P)

What do you guys think? What is your style of writing?
