“Snow comes after fire, and even dragons have their endings.” (book endings)

Last week we talked about opening lines, this week we're talking about ENDING lines. Endings in general, I don't think are anyone's favorite. No one wants to see the end of a good story. They can also be freaking hard to write. But endings are important because nothing, NOTHING is worse than an ending that … Continue reading “Snow comes after fire, and even dragons have their endings.” (book endings)

“Begin at the beginning, and when you come to the end, stop”

First off, you all have my deepest apologies for not posing last Saturday. My brain had become a squash, and squashes don't talk, they don't think, they don't move, and they certainly don't write. They just sit there and look cute and make good projectile weapons. That's what I am. BUT, today you got something. … Continue reading “Begin at the beginning, and when you come to the end, stop”

September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

IT'S OCTOBER. YAY FALL. *flings bats and leaves in the air* *catches the bats before they fall because if they fall on the ground they can't fly up again and they die* It's October which means pumpkins and flannels and tea and pumpkins and leather jackets and adventures and moodiness and *really should stop talking … Continue reading September Wrap Up (aka NaNoWriMo is almost upon us)

Hobbit Day and Fall and Quotes

Yesterday was Sept. 22, which is Bilbo and Frodo Baggin's birthday and the day that Frodo set out with the Ring, leaving the Shire. It's now OFFICIALLY fall.

Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER

Not, gonna lie, I kinda don't want to see August go. Summer is ending??? What??? We barely got any of it!!! And also all the months were turning into mush, so it feels weird that were actually moving in fall, instead of staying in this weird stalemate which the past few months have felt like. … Continue reading Goodbye August HULLO SEPTEMBER

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 26

I'm writing this on Thursday (because I have time). I discovered that Canva has "book cover" templates, and while I have no use what so ever for making book covers, I just got all starry eyed and wasted some time. And made this: IT'S SHINY. Though, it is a little more "perky" than the novel … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 26

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 25

It's Saturday morning (last Saturday morning if you want to know). I wake up late (as does everyone) because last night we went to see Fellowship of the Ring (EXTENDED BABY) at the drive-in and I didn't get to sleep till around 2:30 (probably was pushing 3am). I was sitting in the back of my … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 25

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22

(I must issue my apologies for not posting last Saturday. My brain was going to implode, and I had nothing to say but scream in you faces gibberish such as, "AFHGJLLK" So, I didn't. If you've got nothing nice to say, don't say nothing at all.) Have'd some adventure recently. Kayaking, more drive-ins ("Where have … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 22
