welcome back to my itsy bitsy corner of the web! HELLO NOVEMBER aka me trying to write a novel in 30 days and accomplish some stuff

*cough*

October was an amazing (stressful), fun (painful) and a nice warm month!

I love October (BECAUSE ITS MY BIRTHDAY MONTH YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET) because its such a sweet month (PERFECT FOR READING AND DRAWING HAMILTON FANART) the leaves just fall and fill the autumn air.

But sadly October has to go…

AND THE MONTH OF WRITING WILL BEGIN TOMORROW!!

📖a messy nano WIP 📝

fall hello

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web, today I am going to talk about a dangerous trial called; NANOWRIMO!!! It’s a writing challenge to encourage budding authors but it usually just leaves me burning in failure because I never plan well enough…😓

Although I think it is a really great learning experience and kinda fun getting pushed to complete a novel in thirty days!

I am really excited for nano this year because I was planning on writing a novel this year and nano makes me really excited!

I don’t feel comfortable sharing that much info on my novel because I don’t want anything to get stolen! I am still trying to decide on which book cover to use or what look I am going for AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THE STORY IS GOING TO FLOW SO OOF

Sooo yeah I am still pretty confused on where my book is going but I am sure I will figure it out somehow! Last year nano was so much fun because I did it in a little club with Tess(blackiesunshine) and some other fun bloggers! I loved it and I hope she hosts that again!! WINK WINK (please Tess host it again ;D)

I am really excited for nano this year, and just a LITTLE STRESSED OUT! *twitches* AND NOW ITS TIME FOR A LITTLE PIECE OF WRITING TO INSPIRE ALL OUR BUDDING AUTHORS 😀

Asher walked into the room in deep thought, wondering why he was even here. With a sigh, he took a seat in the blank room. Almost like the blank page when you start Nanowrimo on November 1st and you have absolutely no idea what to write.

“Hi there Asher, take a seat! Oh, you already have, never mind then” I smiled, waving at the insecure bean.

“Greetings and Salutations.” Asher nodded, feeling a bit nervous. He had never been in an interview before. He started fidgeting with the zipper on his black trenchcoat. It was getting warm in the room so he started to take it off.

“Uh, have you seen Cleo yet?” I asked, hoping not to frighten the anxious boy.

“No, sorry Miss. I haven’t… I don’t really know who Cleo is…” He mumbled, taking off the rest of his coat and sitting it next to him in the empty chair beside him. Then the door burst wide open and a flurry of a human ran in, obviously a mess. 

“Sorry, I’m Late!” The girl stammered, nearly dropping everything in her hand. She struggled to stand still, wobbling about and trying to regain balance.

I blinked, trying to conceal a giggle at the poor girl. Two anxious younglings in one day. That was different from the usual. “Are you Cleo?” I asked,”I’m Ava and I will be asking you two a few questions.”

“Yeah! I’m Cleo, sorry about the bad introduction, I was pretty busy this morning and…yeah.” She said, finally taking a seat in the blank white chair.

Asher glanced over at the girl and smiled a bit. “Hi, I’m Asher.” The girl nodded at him and softly smiled.

“Alrighty…” I said, biting my lip and looking over my list.”Just to let you both know, you are in the writing hub. Fictional characters that will soon be developed and sent to the other realities or fictional worlds.”

Asher felt quite confused. He never thought that he was fictional, or made up. He had feelings and thoughts and… he most certainly thought he was real. “Soo… we aren’t human like you?”

I sighed, feeling somewhat confused myself. It was hard to explain how stories and characters were made and it wasn’t often talked about. I had no training in this subject. “Uhhh… It’s hard to explain…I don’t even fully know all of the world’s writing secrets. You’d have to ask the creativity master.” I mumbled.

Cleo hadn’t spoken for a while, but her ears perked when she heard of some master. “Creativity Master?” She thought aloud, unsure if she was truly asking a question or not.

“Nevermind that! On with the questions!” I said, quickly scanning through my paper. Maybe I really wasn’t set out for the amazing role as an author, maybe I should just go back to reading books every day.

maybe I should just quit… and stop dreaming

“Ava?” The room is blurry and I hear people calling my name. I blink and open my eyes to the blank piece of paper facing me. Then I look up out the window facing me above my desk and I see a bird. A little yellow bird trying to fly. It falls at first, but then… it soars. The little bird keeps trying and trying until it can fly so high it touches the clouds.

With a smile on my face, I seize my pencil and begin to write. Because just like the little bird, I will teach myself how to fly.

Wow, that didn’t turn out well. 

I mainly posted that because I really wanted to write and I failed. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS DURING NANO!:P

moving on yo

well that was fun HAH everyone’s nano WIP looks so nice and mine is just AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

jane eyree

As you all may know I love the book, Jane Eyre. In fact, Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books. It is a powerful narrative featuring a bold heroine and mystery! I really recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a great book to read!

fall hello

welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today I am posting the first post of my new weekly blog post series; RECENT READS. It basically is a post I post every Tuesday featuring some books I have recently read 😀

let’s get started!

girls resist (2).png

I really loved this book and I recommend it for any girl boss that wants to learn how to be an activist! This handy guide has tons of awesome tips for any girl that wants to unleash GIRL POWER.

winnies great war

okay, let me just say this book was SOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Its a ww1 story told through the eyes of a bear and I believe it is a true story! And this bear who actually was a REAL BEAR was the inspiration of WINNIE THE POOH! I really recommend this book to anyone that loves sweet heartwarming stories! I didn’t think I would really like this book, BUT I DID AND ITS JUST SO SWEEEET and cute and just AAAAAAAAAAAAH.

I really liked this book! Its super cute and sweet! I love the plot and the artist’s drawing style! ITSSSS SOOOO CUTEEEE!

I was really excited when I discovered this book because pirate princesses are really cool, but the book was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay different than I anticipated and it kinda was a huge rollercoaster ride that was really confusing. I think it was an interesting plot, but written and twisted in the wrong way.

I really love this book! Jane Austen’s works always amazes me! I really can relate to the characters and I love her writing style. It’s sometimes hard to imagine that a totally different era from ours can still have some similarities, but Austen finds a way to get me thinking maybe the eras weren’t so different after all.

alexander hamilton.png

Some of you may know that I LOVE HAMILTON (the musical) And if you haven’t heard of it, it is truly amazing and you should check it out! So when I stumbled across this book at the library I thought maybe the book would be a nice read. I thought wrong. It’s not that this book was really that bad, I mean it is a biography, it just wasn’t filled with catchy songs and what I had hoped for. XD

I hope you enjoyed this post! Which books have you read recently?
