In honor of my current leapfrog of original posts VS. tags, I decided that today would be yet another good day to do a taggish kind of post. I also realize that I’ve been doing a lot of tags lately, but it’s becoming rather apparent that first drafting a book–A.K.A. literally pulling a nonexistent story straight up out of my brain meats and smearing it across a page–requires quite a TON of inspiration and brain power. So when it finally comes time to draft a blog post, I just kind of . . . flail.
But don’t worry, guys. I’m working on some super fun blog posts as we speak!
and also I’m running out of tags to do. *weeps silently*
Anywho, the magical bean, Kinsey (<< LOOK, KINSEY! OUR NAMES ALMOST MATCH! [have I mentioned this before? I feel like I’ve mentioned this before…]) from over at Over The Withers recently tagged me for the Behind The Blogger Book tag, and since I’m far too exhausted from working on SK to even think about working on any of the multiple blog posts I’ve got cooking up in my drafts folder, I thought we’d take a stab at it!
I feel like today’s a let’s-do-a-tag kind-of-day. And what better tag to do on a beautiful May day than the Spring Cleaning Tag? It has Spring. It has cleaning. I think it has something to do with writing. And also it gives a section for organizing your writing goals, which is something that I’ve been seriously wanting to talk about for quite a while now, so this tag sounds like perfection, yes?
You might have noticed there was no post last week.
Aha. Yeah. This was due to many things, but the majority of it was that Easter weekend was a whole lot busier than I had bothered to anticipate for, which left little to no time for writing my Camp NaNoWriMo novel, let alone blogging. So I just . . . didn’t blog.
. . . oops?
But honestly, taking a little break was probably the best thing to have happened to me all month, you guys. The first two weeks of Camp NaNoWriMo were a complete disaster (more on that to come, of course), and I just seriously needed to take some time off and breathe a little bit. And due to my unexpected absence last week, I feel a whole lot more refreshed and ready to take on both the writing and blogging worlds once again.
So let’s talk about what’s been happening this month, shall we? I think there’s quite a bit we need to go over.
About three million years ago, I was tagged by Penny from over at A Southern Belle With Stories To Tell(is that not the most amazing blog name ever, or what???) for her very own tag–The Star Wars Character Tag!
Now, I had intended to do this tag a lot sooner than I am–because it’s STAR WARS and CHARACTERS and WRITING all jumbled up into one thing???? what’s not to love about this????–but, as always, life decided to get in the way and crush all my bloggerly hopes and dreams. But I’m here now, so hopefully that makes my tardiness acceptable.
GUYS! I am so beyond thrilled to be able to be a part of the lovely blog tour (the first blog tour I’ve ever been a part of, actually. . . AHAHAHAHAHAHAHELPME) for the SUPER exciting new website run by Arielle, Faith, and Christine*–Fairy Tale Central! This is just my little intro to let you all know that I’m jumping on the blog tour bandwagon, but the actual post–*points down*–will tell you all you need to know about the new site, give links to its social media accounts, and all that exciting jazz that you’re actually interested in reading.
But first, I’d love to take just a few moments of your time to add a couple of my own thoughts to this post. Because WHY NOT, am I right???? Aha. Hahahahaha. *nervous laughter intensifies*Read More »
As the creator of the tag–Jenna Terese–said in the original Project Inspire post, this is less of a tag, and more of “. . .an opportunity to take part in a mission to appreciate, inspire, encourage, and simply spread love to writers everywhere.”Read More »
This post was supposed to come out on Saturday. Today is not Saturday.
PRETEND IT’S SATURDAY, PEASANTS.
Ahem. As I mentioned briefly in my last post, I have some VERY exciting news to share with you all today!!! And while I’m sure most of you already have an inkling as to what this news is, I’m just going to pretend like you have absolutely no clue. Because that is clearly more fun.Read More »
Way back in July of 2018, I posted my answers for the Get To Know Me Tag (WRITER’S EDITION). Now, nine months later, I’ve been tagged yet again by the lovely Phoebe from over at So It Is (Re)Written to do this tag a second time! And since so much time has passed between now and then, I thought it’d be really fun to see how much my answers have changed–or . . . not changed?–since the last time I did this tag.
Which is why, today, I’m going to be doing the Get To Know Me Tag 2.0!
. . .in which the questions are literally the same as the last time. Aha. I also think I’m stealing the whole 2.0 thing from Phoebe, but SHHHHHH it’s fine. She won’t mind.
please don’t mind.
Anyway, without any further ado, let’s dive into the tag!Read More »
