The Four-Part Writing Special// Part 2: Characters

Before I go on to today's post: Please, take some time today to pray for the survivors of the Las Vegas shooting. I know I'm a little late on saying something about that, but PTSD is something that takes years to shake and doesn't seem to ever fully go away. Pray that the people of the United States would find God in the midst of this tragedy and not cling to superficialities.

But now: For today's post! Which will hopefully be a little more light-hearted as Part 2 of the Four-Part Writing Special!

Once again, be sure to check out the other posts in this month's pre-NaNo series! 

And here we go! Today's post: The characters of my WIP, which has gotten a working title lately: Hurricane Ink. 
1. Who is the Main Character? Her name is Briallen. She's a young woman at university with a dangerous backstory. Cryptic much? ^_^

A little more detail for you lovely people: Briallen is nineteen years old (although that doesn't really factor into the story much.) She…

The Four-Part Writing Special //Part 1: Story

So, hey everyone!

First of all: thank you guys so much for the great feedback I've gotten so far on my alpha reading call. I may not actually have to do a separate recruiting period for betas! If you'd like to sign up for THAT, it'll be a little while before I'm ready for that, so you may want to go ahead and sign up, or you can let me know in the comments or through the contact form that you'd like me to add you to that list. Click HERE for more info on that!

Today's post will begin a linkup started by Julian. Several other bloggers are getting involved, so keep an eye out for their posts!

Are you preparing for NaNo? I'm afraid I'm not 100% sure as to whether I'll be doing it this year or not.

But if you are, best of luck to you! I'm going to tell you today about the WIP I'm working on right now, a super-secret project that is no-longer-super-secret. But here we go!

LE QUESTIONS  1. What is the title, genre, and current status of your WIP…

Alpha Read my Rooglewood Story!

I'm ready for alpha readers for my Rooglewood Press Snow White story! I've never done anything like this before, and it makes me very nervous. However. We're gonna do this, peeps.
I don't know about you, but I think it would be pretty epic to see my name on that cover. The thing is, I need your help to get there. So will you help me? 
I've never done Google forms or, really, Google permissions/docs. My good friend Ry is reading several of my stories right now and being super encouraging, but I don't really know how to do all of this good stuff like setting up a doc that's comment only and all that good stuff. But I'm going to figure it out. Learning as we go here. :)
So, if you want to sign up to alpha-read my book (or beta read when the alpha readers are done), please, let me know below! Now is the time to sign up, friends!
However. There is a catch.
Priority will be given to the first five people to sign up, and thus if you hesitate, you may lose the …

It's the End of September! (Like, how, tho)

Just don't think about that, k? I don't know how it's already time for this... but then, I also skipped doing a monthly wrapup in August due to my hiatus. So some of the things you see in this post will be, in fact, August books and movies... but they're counting as September ones because it's easier for me to not skip them and I'm sure you want to hear my thoughts on them. (Because my thoughts are flawless.)

So... here we go!

Music This song, y'all. Listen to it. It makes me cry and throw up my hands in praise of my Savior. He did so much for us, and his glory is completely incomprehensible.

It makes me cry. And I just love it, k? It sounds like it's about veterans to me, but it has a much deeper meaning as well personally. Listen to it.

I like this one. I don't know why, exactly. It's just... a good song.

Two Fall-Out Boy songs in one post. I know. But we're just gonna go with it.

Here's my Spotify Playlist for this year so far, in cas…

A Tolkien Link-Up! (Happy Bilbo's Birthday!)

Hey, followers and fans!
Today is September 22, which means that for those of us who love Lord of the Rings, it's a very special day--Bilbo and Frodo's birthday! At this point, I'm sure many people have run the numbers and discovered how old they are. I don't care to do that. 

But today I'll be taking part in Hamlette's blog linkup for Hobbit Week! If you haven't read Lord of the Rings, please do so. (I'm looking at a couple of you in know who you are XD) There are ten questions and, because you didn't get enough Lord of the Rings/Hobbit gifs last week on my announcement post, there will be a number of those scattered throughout this post.

Here goes!


1. How long have you been a Tolkien fan?
Oh goodness. I don't even know. My dad read me The Hobbit when I was eight years old, and I remember he had to go on a business trip in the middle of the Mirkwood chapter. It was torture for my little kid soul.

As soon as we fini…
