A Little Thing Called Pinterest (And Why You Need it for Writing)

pinterestAnybody heard of Pinterest?  I try not to spend my whole life on the site.  It’s seriously addictive.  I primarily began using it for writing.  Why Pinterest, you ask.  Isn’t that only for clothing and food?  I’m here to tell you that Pinterest is amaze for writing.  No this isn’t an advertisement for my Pinterest account, even though I might use some examples and I wouldn’t mind the followers.  😛

A Brief Update and an Announcement

Ahem.  *clears throat*

Update:

As some of you know, I don’t have constant access to wi-fi at the moment.  Therefore, posts might be slightly sporadic for a bit.  I’ll try to post whenever I have access, but read aware.  You might want to check out the posts: Hilarious Writing Humor!Bunnicula- Book Review, 5 Poisonous Plants every Writer Should Know About!, and Off Track- Short Story because I know you’ll miss me.

The Announcement:

I have embarked upon a new journey.  

First, let’s talk about fandoms.  (Have you ever tried to explain to your parents what fandoms, headcannons, and all that stuff?  It’s difficult.)

Fandoms are crazy, and awesome.  And who says you can’t be in just one?  Currently, I’m in the Narnia fandom, Ranger’s Apprentice fandom, Percy Jackson fandom, Lord of the Rings fandom, and the list goes on and on and on.


Have you ever wanted to visit a site completely devoted and dedicated to fandoms?  This new website will cure all your ails, imaginary or real, become a place to mourn beloved character’s deaths, relive dramatic moments, and memes.  Can’t forget the memes.Image result for sebastian gif little mermaid

Enough with the toothpaste commercial.

Introducing Fandom Quest.

I’m a co-author of the blog, along with three other lovely people.  If you ever need more posts about fandom-related things, that’s the place to go.  The posts won’t stop here!

If you’d like to read a piece I wrote, go here.

So saying, my computer has no access to wi-fi, and hopefully this draft will save before my computer crashes.

UPDATE:  hey lookie, it actually saved and published!

Why We Write

glamorous. fabulous. charming. fun. flirty. elegant. exciting. delicate. whimsical. wonderful....:

It’s February.  Also known as the time when most people give up their New Year’s Resolutions.  Anyone out there who has?  *awkwardly raises hand*  And if one of those was a writing goal, you’re in the same boat as I am.

So, encouragement time.  Here’s to lots of writing in 2017.  (A little late, but hey, it’s something.) Continue reading

Worldbuilding Questions

world-building-questions

*claps hands gleefully*  This is one of my favorite topics.  Yeesh, even if you’re not a writer, keep reading.  My joy and excitement alone are amazing.  

Let’s talk worldbuilding.  My computer still underlines it with red squiggles, but worldbuilding is a word in my book.  What’s worldbuilding?  Basically, building a world.  Rocket science, I know.  Oh, but it’s so much fun.  You take a flat piece of earth, and make it into an amazing world.  That’s how I started writing, actually.  I made up an entire imaginary world in my head while doing the dishes, and it grew, and grew, and grew some Continue reading

Babysitting the Hacker- A Crazy Short Story

slide1

“Where did you learn to break into a lock?  You’re eight years old!” 

That, my friends, is a start of an epic story.  We have all these crime-fighting kids in books and movies, but really, how many eight year olds are going to be on the streets by themselves while working?  It’s crazy.  Someone has to babysit.  

So of course you’ll click the button, right? —->>> Continue reading

Shout out to all who have already broken their writing New Year’s Resolutions…  Yeah, that would be me.

I took this (short) interesting quiz of sorts.  I’m a pretty big fan of The Rebelution, and they have some good articles, so you should check them out.  Back to the topic, I took this quiz they offered called the WriterScore (free).  It was helpful for me to figure out where I was lacking.  The result categories are: Continue reading
