What tattoos do you have, and do they have meaning to you?
I currently have one tattoo. It is almost a year old at this point. I dreamed the idea up for a full year before getting it. Many parts of my personality match up with the qualities of a deer, so I knew I wanted to incorporate this majestic animal. Continue reading “Day 7-Tattoos”
Let’s stop to take a deep breath. The school year is over! As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted in about… 2 months 😦
My life got crazier than it ever has before during the last stretch of the semester, but it ended well. I survived. And now it’s summer! Continue reading “Say Goodbye to Excuses”
Today I have been feeling productive. So naturally, I wasted about 3 hours surfing the Internet looking for writing tips. I found a really cool website through another wonderful blog by a fellow student of mine, Nicole Crucial. It’s called Canva, and I used it to make this cool header. I hate stealing images from Google, but I’m not a regular photographer. Problem solved. Read my blog please. It’s amazing.
It has both free and paid features, so both starving college students and thriving bloggers can customize their usage. I like the bunny a lot. And it’s really easy to use. I made that in about 30 seconds.
I also stumbled upon the webpage for NaNoWriMo summer camp in April, and while a huge part of me wants to do it because I’ve never finished a NaNo month before, I know that April will be one of the craziest months I’ve ever had. I don’t like starting a project without finishing it. But I want to write more.
And I also found an awesome website called How To Write A Book Now. It’s full of pages on character development, plot and story arc, and what makes good writers successful. And it simplifies all the ideas into their basic format and emphasizes the effectiveness of sometimes breaking the rules. Now to read all of it…
So to anyone who reads this blog, I want to thank you, but I also want to thank the Internet. Without you, O infinite Internet, none of us would be sane.
I thought I had my life plan all worked out. Go to college, get a Creative Writing degree with something helpful as a minor, get married, so on and so forth. And so far, it’s working great. I love college, I love writing (obviously). Except having a plan forces me to make some sort of commitment to actually achieving these things, like my happiness is tied to each one of these steps because at one point I thought it was a good idea.
But what if I change my mind? and I might be changing my mind… Continue reading “Confusion”
I just finished this book, assigned for my Creative Writing class, and I am having a little trouble living in the real world now.
This book is such a complex myriad of characters, relationships, points of view, tenses, and time periods, and they are all jumbled up so the reader is confused at the beginning of each chapter. But that’s how life is. Continue reading “Review–A Visit From The Goon Squad”
Today’s prompt: “What is the best compliment you’ve received?”
Someone told me recently that I have good leadership qualities and a strong drive. This comment was significant to me because I don’t consider myself to be a leader figure. I don’t enjoy speaking in front of lots of people, I don’t enjoy being in charge or telling people what to do, and I’m not skilled at mediating conflicts. Continue reading “Day 3–The Best Compliment”
