WRITER WEEKENDS: NANOWRIMO, TIME MANAGEMENT AND SHINY NEW IDEAS


Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've talked about writing on here. That's mainly because I haven't been writing much at all, so I guess there wasn't much to say. Anyway, with NaNoWriMo around the corner I'm finally starting to get back into the writing spirit and do you know what that means? UPDATE TIME!

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: CHARACTERS YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO TRADE PLACES WITH

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY WAS CREATED BY GINGERREADSLAINEY AND IS CURRENTLY HOSTED BY THOUGHTS ON TOMES. YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP.




It's Wednesday! That means I've made it through half of my second week of sixth form, and now it's time for another Top 5 Wednesday. This week's topic is Top 5 characters you wouldn't want to trade places with. This was surprisingly difficult to narrow down because...well, most of my favourite characters have terrible lives that I would never want to experience. Let's be honest here, reading about fighting dragons and stuff is WAY better than actually doing it and getting killed in five minutes.

In no particular order...

WHERE I'VE BEEN AND WHAT I'M READING

Hi everyone!

So. It's been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. It's actually been a long time since I've posted anything on the internet at all. I have been outside, experiencing the REAL WORLD. I know, I know. Isn't it awful?

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: CHARACTERS I WANT AS FAMILY MEMBERS

TOP 5 WEDNESDAY WAS CREATED BY GINGERREADSLAINEY AND IS CURRENTLY HOSTED BY THOUGHTS ON TOMES. YOU CAN FIND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THE GOODREADS GROUP.



Hi everyone,

It's the first Wednesday of September, which would be much more exciting if it wasn't the last Wednesday before I go back to school. Bleh.

Anyway, this weeks topic for Top 5 Wednesday is top 5 characters you want to be part of your family. It's pretty self explanatory, really. I decided to do this in the style of that tag that went around ages ago where you had to pick a character to be your mum, dad, brother etc. Does anyone remember that? No? Okay...

WRITER WEEKENDS: 5 USEFUL APPS AND WEBSITES

Hi everyone,

The internet is useful for a lot of things, right? Connecting with people, finding new information, watching cat videos...it just makes everything more convenient. Writing is no exception!

For this weeks Writer Weekend's post I wanted to bring some attention to five of my favourite websites (well, four websites and one phone) which have made the entire writing process SO much easier for me. All of these programs are completely free and don't require any sketchy downloads, because I am broke and terrified of computer viruses. Don't worry!

DISCUSSION: APPRECIATION VS. ENJOYMENT

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to introduce something a little bit different for this blog, although everyone else has been doing them forever. Discussion posts! Basically, I give my (scattered, probably incoherent) thoughts on a topic and hopefully start a little bit of a debate in the comments!


This post was actually inspired by the hashtag #GameofthronesVsTeenwolf, which was trending in the UK the other day for some reason I didn't bother to look into. This isn't going to debate on which is the better show (I don't even watch Game of Thrones, honestly), but it did make me think about something; what's the difference between appreciating something is good and actually enjoying it?
