IT’S SUMMER!!!!!!!!

I have a pressing question.  What do Australians do?  Do they start the school year in September, and then work through the summer (our winter) then get their summer break with snow?  Do you start in April and stop in November?  What happens?  If you’re an Aussie, please comment and tell me because summer without swimming and flip flops sounds sad.  (Of course, it could just be a plain answer, like you start in the same month as pretty much everyone else.)

But if you’re reading this, that means that I finished school, which to me, is the definition of summer. Continue reading

Summer and Swimming

Hiya people.  It’s almost summer!!!  [It feels like it already, (already had the first sunburn of the season) but we have to wait a few more days for it to be official.]

Sorry for lack of posts…  I won’t even make up an excuse.  So saying, the schedule for this is going to change a little.  Haha, like I had a schedule in the first place… Continue reading

Psychopaths, Sociopaths, and Villains

Adobe Spark (10)

Okay, okay, it’s a weird post title, I know.  I’m NOT saying that if someone has a mental illness, they’re a villain.  But, I’m going to discuss how mental illnesses can affect your villain, for the better or the worse.

A word of caution:  I don’t recommend writing a villain with a mental illness unless you’ve had experience, done tons of research, or have talked to someone who is knowledgeable about the mental illness that you are considering giving to your villain.

Now that we’ve got that cleared up, let’s see how mental illnesses affect villains.

Obviously, something is a little off in the head of a villain if they’re a villain.  But sometimes, it’s a little more than being “a bit off.”  Out of curiosity, I started researching Continue reading

The Many Positions of a Writer

Writers and their weird poses and positions.  This is a widely used guide by all writers about the wheres, hows, and whens of writing places, poses, and times. 

(Warning:  This may be dangerous information for the beginning writer.  If you like writing in one position, at one place, stay away.  You stay just how you are.  It’ll be better for your posture in the long run.) Continue reading

Historical Writing Prompts

Adobe Spark (9)It’s been a while since we’ve had a round of writing prompts on here.  I decided to branch out and do historical prompts.  This place was getting bogged down with all the fantasy prompts.  

Now, I don’t write historical.  I tried to write a short story set in the Great Depression, but it turned into a miserable failure.  (Actually, my seven year old brother read it over my shoulder while I typed it, and I asked him for help.  The plot didn’t improve, so I’ll blame that story’s failure on him. But he liked the story.)

These historical fiction prompts are going to be something unique because–guess what– they all happened in history!  (I know, historical fiction normally is set in history, but hear me out.)  

These prompts were all in the newspaper and they caught my eye.  These are real life prompts, taken from headlines and articles in newspapers a long time ago.  Some are quite humorous, and I daresay you’ll like them whether you write historical or not. Continue reading

Hi all of you out there!  *waves*  It’s been a long while.  But I have returned! (From TeenPact, sickness, and school.)

I’ve been tagged with the Blue Sky Tag by Hailey of haileyhudson.wordpress.com.  Go check out her blog, it’s inspiring. 🙂

That means I’m answering a whole bunch of questions, then nominating some more people for my own questions.   Continue reading

Animal Farm-Book Review

animal farm book review

I have a penchant for reading banned books, apparently.  

Though this one isn’t as pleasant as To Kill A Mockingbird.  It’s actually really depressing, but a thought-provoking read.

Animal Farm is actually a fairy tale.  No, not the fairy tales of princesses and dragons.  It’s specifically a book written with flat characters.  Character arcs are few and far in between.  Continue reading

A little update on life…

Hi people!  Life has been crazy for a while now, but that should all come to an end within the next two weeks.  *glitter everywhere*  

I’ve heard that writing about your personal life makes your blog, well, more personable.  I don’t know about that, but it sounded fun to write, so here we are.
