My 9 Somethings for September

Hey friends!

I hope life is treating you well! My month was a rather calm one but not without its quirky happenings. 🙂 Welcome to my 9 Somethings for September!

Something Related to Writing

I’m done with Ridgeline!

*yells from the rooftop* *dances in the rain* *throws glitter that sticks to my wet hair*

This story is one of the most natural books I’ve written yet. I outlined but didn’t force myself to stress too much over scene structure and theme, like I’ve done before. There’s a bunch of issues (it’s the first draft, after all), but I’m still thrilled with it. 🙂 The current word count is 68,757.

I also had a major breakthrough regarding Rook’s new book, Ceasefire. The story had been missing a certain something I couldn’t name, but when a new idea hit me, the whole thing came to life. 🙂 Was I brainstorming when I should have been writing Ridgeline? Maaaaaybe.

I’m planning on writing Ceasefire during Nanowrimo. 🙂

I had two articles published on SE this month!

Don’t Let Pressure Kill the Joy in Your Writing and How to Use Details in Action Sequences. *beams with pride* Read more

My 9 Somethings for July

Hey friends!

I survived my first writer’s conference and my first kidnapping! 😀 Isn’t that exciting?

Welcome to my nine Somethings for July.

Something on Fire

Every July we host a party near the Fourth. We use this party as an excuse to blow up stuff.

Why?

Because it’s fun and we are ‘mericans.

I dragged my camera out during the party to snap some pics of all the pretty, burning objects.

Something Familiar

I dyed my hair once again and enjoyed all the confusion I inflicted upon my poor fellow humans who had a hard time recognizing me. You’ll notice the change in the pictures below so I won’t bother with one now.

Something Legendary

Now we’re getting to the good stuff.

I attended my first writer’s conference EVER, and boy, it was worth the money. Read more

Announcing Rooftop Writing Prompts (and Free Stuff)

I come to you with an important announcement. Drumroll, please.

*holds breath*

I started another website! 😀

Remember those writing prompts I told you about in my last Somethings? Well, apparently posting a few on my blog wasn’t enough for me

I created another website so I could obsess over this new idea. I call it, “Rooftop Writing Prompts.”

Why call it Rooftop Writing Prompts? First of all, I needed a cool name. Adding “rooftop” to anything makes it sound cool. Just try it.

The rooftop has also been one of my favorite writing spots. I’ve chilled up there writing anything from a book to an article to a blog post. I want it to become a symbol of creativity and inspiration.

To learn more about my new website, click here.

or here.

They all lead to the same place. I’m just a little excited, so you get more than one link. 😛

But that’s not all I’m excited about. To celebrate this new website, I’m giving out a free book of writing prompts to anyone and everyone who signs up for my mailing list!

*throws confetti* I put a lot of brainpower into this one, my friends. These prompts are just waiting for someone to turn them into a fabulous story. All you have to do is sign up here and the collection is all yours.

Enjoy your weekend!
