7 of the Best Fictional Couples

Story Time: English class, with my wonderful teacher.  (It’s a homeschool class, with maybe 20 students.)  We were discussing poetry, and the topic of conversation was William Shakespeare’s Sonnets.  One girl (obviously a fangirl,) cried, “I ship it.”  

My poor teacher.  She was like, “what on earth are you talking about?”  So the girl repeated herself.  “I ship it.”  My teacher had no idea what she was talking about.  No one really wanted to try and explain our craziness to the world, so eventually, my teacher gave up, and turned back to discussing people that were like summer days.Image result for meme ship and fandoms pirate

My Projects

I realized that after all these goal related posts, that I haven’t really talked about my own goals, completed or in progress.  (Or somewhere floating around in the galaxy…)

If you missed the whole motivation saga, you can read them now. (The Best Websites for Keeping Writing Goals +Camp NaNo, What to do When Lacking Motivation to Write, Why We Write)

Otherwise, this post is going to be about my own writing stuff.  Expect lots of rambling. Continue reading

Should Books Be Banned?

should books be bannedI was googling some things, and I saw this recommended search: “why books should be banned.”  Curious, I clicked on the search button.  

Basically, the articles that came up said that books put poison in children’s minds that they can’t get out, and are bad for civilization.  Books that explore ideas such as racial prejudices, unpopular religious views, adult stuff.

Should we ban those books?

This is my opinion, and you’re welcome to disagree. Continue reading

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

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

What to do When Lacking Motivation to Write

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
