If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life. Please not real life)

(When was the last time I did a post on Wednesday? I have no idea, yet here we are. Welcome back) "If something can go wrong, it will go wrong." Murphy's law. An old military saying. Whatever you like to think of it as. Along similar lines, I would like to create a new saying; … Continue reading If something can go wrong, it should go wrong (like in fiction. Not real life.

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 46

1. If I see Peter Pan misquoted as saying "to live will be an awfully big adventure" one more time I will actually go banana balls. The quote is incorrect and entirely loses the spirit of the moment and the spirit of Peter Pan himself. The correct version is, "To die will be an awfully … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 46

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 45

Me reading: ah yes, the trope of the quiet YA protagonist and her bubbly best friend. #SeenIt #SoTypical Me thinking a moment later: Oh wait. I am the trope. I'm the quite person who's closest friends always end up being extroverts. *has existential crisis* 2. Found this gem in my blog post drafts: I come … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 45

2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

Well, 2020 is over folks, though that doesn't mean this year is going to be infinitely better than the last (don't mean to be a Puddleglum here), and if it's not, we can't say "well, it's 2020" anymore, so what are we gonna do??? What are we gonna blame it on now?? But anyway, with … Continue reading 2020 Wrap Up: the Year to End All Years

The Shallow End of Point of View (let’s build the TENSION)

POV (point of view) is something that is discussed A LOT when it comes to writing/stories. Because it IS that important. You gotta make sure you pick the right POV(s). You gotta make sure it's in voice of the character. If you go for deep POV, you gotta make sure you're doing that right by … Continue reading The Shallow End of Point of View (let’s build the TENSION)

Writing Routines: the Writer, the Myth, the Legend (good luck trying to follow my train of thought here)

Writing bloggers: Here is how I write a novel: One, I take the idea and put it in a special box. Two, I start working on character profiles. Three - Me: I AM CHAOS. The more I write and edit, the more I find I rarely do something the same way twice. The only thing … Continue reading Writing Routines: the Writer, the Myth, the Legend (good luck trying to follow my train of thought here)

Little Women 2019: I came, I watched, I had thoughts

Ok so I watched the 2019 Little Women. I expected to either have a really ANGRY review of how much I hated it, or a GUSHING review of how much I loved it. And I'm just....meh??? Like I don't have many feelings about it? There was a lot I really, really, really liked. And I … Continue reading Little Women 2019: I came, I watched, I had thoughts

Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 11

Go do yourself a favor and listen to the Mandalorian soundtrack on Spotify. Right now. I watched Star Trek: the Motion Picture this week which I haven't watched in YEARS. My sister had never seen it before and....I don't think she was that impressed (honestly, it was a looooooot sloooooooower than I remembered it being.) … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 11
