It’s about 8:30 pm on March 31st. Camp NaNoWriMo begins tomorrow. And I can’t wait.

Last April, I participated in my first ever Camp. My project was outlining and structuring “Catch”, the same novel I’m writing draft two of for this Camp. I’m also hoping to begin editing it during Camp since it’s a novel in verse and shorter than most types of novels. My goal is currently 20,000 words. It will be a struggle to even get those down.

(A Very Late) Chats With Wings-February 2019

 

Chats With Wings

Hello, guys! It’s been a while. I’m fully aware that it’s the middle of March (Where has the time gone?), but I figured I should wrap up February anyway. My existence in the blogosphere has basically been 0. My goal for the rest of March is to post at least once a week. 🙂

Right now, there’s just a lot going on. I’m trying to get better at managing my time, but I should be back in full swing on this blog by Summer. Well, now that that’s out the way, let’s wrap up February!

The Rip It or Ship It Tag-Part 2

img_4058

I meant to post this tag on Valentine’s Day. Then, life happened. So, this post is arriving in your reader 3 days late. XD 😉 But, anyways, today I will be doing the Rip It or Ship It tag. I’ve done it once before, about a year and a half ago, and had a great time.

The Rip it or Ship It tag is all about ships! Sticking two characters from different books together and seeing if they’d make a good couple. If they do you ship it, if they don’t you…um…rip it. I wrote down the names of ten female characters and put them in one pile and wrote down the names of ten male ones and put them in another pile.

Each pair was made by randomly selecting one piece of paper from each pile. If I pulled two characters from the same book, I re-picked. I tried to spread the love between popular books and not so popular ones.

This tag always produces some interesting results, so let’s get started!

Oh, and I hope you enjoy a bit of snowy day bookish photography to go along with the post.

This post contains minor spoilers for multiple books.

Chats With Wings-January 2019

Chats With Wings

Happy February, guys! As you can see, I thought it was high time to bring back my monthly recaps. They were always my favorite posts to write, but alas, I haven’t written one since June.

January seemed like a really long month, but at the same time, not really? A lot of things happened, including starting a new year! So, let’s begin recapping it.

A Thousand Perfect Notes-Spoiler Free Review

It was a cold January day. My winter break had reached its end, and I needed something else to read. I’d been wanting to read on my mom’s Kindle for a while now. So, I picked it up and purchased two books. One, the one I’m reviewing today was A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews.

A Little Writing Update-Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

I’m not entirely sure when I last talked to you guys about writing. Either way, much of my plans have changed. I’ve changed book ideas, book types, book titles until I’ve found the one I truly want to write.

Chats With Wings 2018 (Recap and 2019 Goals)

img_2685

Happy New Year, dear Winged Wonders! I’ve immensely enjoyed reading everyone’s wrap up posts. I think it’s time to do one of my own. 2018 was quite the year. It was a year of really finding myself. It also flew by, don’t you think?

2018 had so much good, but disappointment as well. Was it a bad year? No. Could it have been better? Yes. Looking back, I could only find major good moments. In almost every major bad moment, there was some good. I’m going to try to focus on the good in 2019.

I kind of stopped doing Chats With Wings halfway through the year. I’d like to start that back up again. Look out for December’s, coming soon. I also kind of stopped blogging halfway throughout the year. I wasn’t really sure what to post. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to post. That’s kind of what I meant by “finding myself”. Finding who I am, what I want to do, what’s important to me. I learned that I don’t like being put into a box. A single niche.

With that in mind, here are some of my highlights from the year. You might notice, they’re from multiple categories.

A Wreath of Bookish Presents-What I Got for Christmas 2018

Merry Belated Christmas and Happy Almost New Year! The holidays just zoomed by this year. Actually, 2018 in general did.

Today, I’ll be showing y’all some of the things I got for Christmas. Of course, I am not at all trying to brag. I simply love reading these and they’re pretty fun to make.

I don’t like the word ‘haul’, so last year I coined the term ‘wreath’. It’s my collective noun for a group of presents.

Please excuse the…interesting photo quality. It shall be remedied soon. 😉

Well, here it is! My wreath of bookish presents.

The Beginning of Something Great

It started with a frantic message to a group of blogging friends.

It went something like, “Guys, I need your help with a school project.” The school project in question was a recording of an original script with different people acting out different characters. A few members of the group volunteered, the project was made and posted.

But was that the end?

No, it was just the beginning.

Of Peppa Pig and French Class

img_3002-1

About a week ago, I walked into French class. Per usual, there was something playing on the Promethean board. I looked at what it was and burst into laughter. There, was Peppa Pig and her friends, speaking French. I sat down and began to watch it. The rest of the students in our small class walked with their own giggles and “What the hecks?”

As I watched it, I realized something. I realized that I understood what was happening, but more importantly, what the characters were saying and what it meant. I was so excited. It may seem silly, to be excited at watching a show meant for kids years younger than I. But, it meant something.
