Today while I was on a walk, a little girl asked her mother why I was walking down the street.
“Because she’s going on a walk,” the mom replied.
That got me thinking. Have we really reached the point where young children don’t know the magic of a walk around the block? Of being able to hear your thoughts dance around your head to the beat of your footsteps? Of just being able to enjoy nature and not our devices?
Or is the fact that we are told from a young age that biking is faster than walking and therefore is better? That we are already starting to learn what society instills in us; that faster and newer and better is what’s worth having?

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.

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!

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.
Continue reading “Chats With Wings-January 2019”
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.

Hey, guys! Some of you might know that I took up the Camp NaNoWriMo challenge in April. I decided to take it up again this July. I was really excited to finally write the novel that I planned in April.
But, when July came, I found myself doing other things. There were more important things that came up, like seeing family. I also went on a five day vacation.
This meant that overall, I was not writing and therefore behind on my goal. But, I know many other people are also struggling with this. So, I decided to create a little guide to help us both out.
Let’s get started!

Well, it’s that time again. It’d time to welcome the new month and recap the old month. These are some of my favorite posts to write! June was a great month, but July is my first full month of Summer.
Let’s begin the June Chat!
Continue reading “Chats With Wings-June 2018”
In a mere week, I shall experience your loveliness and freedom. In a mere week, my typical schedule shall be gone and a new one shall begin.
As hard as it is to leave the old memories of an old school year, I’m ready to make more.

Is it just me, or did May seem to stretch on for a very long time? When I think about it, I can’t believe that it was only one month.
It is now time for the official Chats With Wings. I am on time this month! *Cue cheering*
Anyway, let’s get started!
Continue reading “Chats With Wings-May 2018”
Yes, that is the proper title. I am doing last month’s forgotten Chats With Wings mere days before I need to work on my May Chat. This is going to be a rather shortened chat because not all of the categories will be found. For example, I will not have any May goals because, well, May is over in three days. 🙂
Let’s recap April!
