Writing Love (Told by Megamind)

Hey everyone! So I totally spaced on a post last Friday and... I may space again since me and my brother are going down to Kentucky for the weekend. Besides my reading has gone down considerably since the beginning of the year. My TBR went from a waterfall to a trickle and now I'm scrambling to find other books to read.

I've seen a lot of posts about complaining about writing. The woes of writing and such. And yes there are a lot of hard things about writing but sometimes you just feel on top of the world when you write. Sometimes your book is just the best thing in the world for you. Your characters are actually cooperating for once (shocker!), your worldbuilding is superb and your plot is to die for.

So here you go. Gifs to explain the awesomeness of writing because I love to write. I love to complain about writing but I also love gushing about the pure awesomeness of writing too.

                                                         Finishing a first draft.

Because after that agonizing first draft you just need to celebrate because you did it and it might look a little awful but it's also one step closer to awesomeness.

                                           When your OTP is actually perfect and to die for.

They are just too cute together and you can't stop freaking out over your own characters!

                             When you can't get over all the evil stuff your doing to your characters.

When your doing all the evil things!

              Those times when your writing is just flowing and your on a complete writing roll.

(This one was a little bit of a cheat. I couldn't find the gif I wanted for this one.) But when you feel unstoppable as you write away.

                                        When you just love your protagonist so much it hurts.

And he/she really is.

           Sitting back and admiring all your hard work and actually being kind of happy with it all.

Awww that one moment before your inner editor destroys everything.
                                                 Feeling relaxed as you plot away.

Ahhh, that moment when your brain is actually letting you plot.
So I think this post is officially my favorite. I love this and I think I did great (if I do say so myself). And Megamind? Probably the only movie I could quote all the way through.

But yeah so enjoy and don't forget to pat yourself on the back because you finished that first draft/that first chapter/even that first sentence. You all are great and amazing writers and don't ever forget all the benefits of being a writer. When you feel down or like a horrible writing and like your book will never go anywhere just remember all the awesome parts of being a writer. All those moments when you feel on top of the world and like the best writer the world has ever known. Be as confidant and cocky as Megamind because you are awesome!

What are your favorite parts of being a writer? What are you writing right now?

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
