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. šŸ˜‰

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.

Hide and Seek Blog Tour

Today’s post is really special. Today’s post is part of the blog tour for Hide and Seek, a book written by one of my dear blogging friends, Mya. I’m really excited.

About the Book:

Now, eight years later, memories of Asher are coming back to haunt her and she struggles to decipher the meaning of his disappearance. In a terrifying sequence of events, she comes to the deadly realization that a simple game of hide and seek can be much more dangerous than one might think.

Before they know it, Amara and her best friend, Rowan, are whisked away on a journey to find Asher and take down the sinister group that is holding him captive. But time is running out, and saving one friend could mean losing another.

After Taking A Step Back…

It was the end of July, a few days before my family was to leave for vacation. I was pondering what to post. My mind was drawing a blank. I felt this pressure to post certain things and make my blog a certain way.

I stepped away from my computer, grabbed a piece of paper and wrote out my honest thoughts about blogging. I realized I didn’t love blogging. I had loved it when I started, but my love had fizzled out.

At first, I was shocked. I knew I didn’t love it, but I didn’t want to stop.
