“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.

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
