Weapon Icean and the Enneagram

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! I hope you all have a great tomorrow with lots of yummy food and friends and family! Last night I went to my first ever Friendsgiving and it was a lot of fun! So now I'm ready for more yummy food tomorrow.

But for today, I want to sort all of the important characters of Weapon Icean into Eneagram number! Before I do that today, I wanted to say, I got to 42,000 words in Project Khione! For a while there I really thought I would fall behind and I didn't think I would catch up and get to the 50,000 words by the end of November, especially since I was hitting a rut in the book and in my writing in general. So, I tried something that I've never really tried before. I skipped the in-between scenes that are necessary to get from point A to point B, and went straight to a big plot point and that really got me back on track. Seeing how this book has given me such a hard time, I'm thinking I might just skip to all the major plot points and then fil…

Friday in Review: The Inhumans

I haven't done one of these in forever! This one is sort of a shorter one cuz I'm pretty tired and feeling kind of light headed, but I really wanted to get a blog post written, so that's why it's a shorter post.  There have been a few shows that I've finished, mainly 12 Monkeys and Being Human that I still have to do reviews on, but today I wanted to go for something that's fresher in my mind. If your a superhero/Marvel fan, especially of their TV shows, then you know the Inhumans.
The reviews have been scattered and I'll admit, it's wasn't the strongest show I've ever seen, but what do you get from giving ABC a cast of Marvel characters?

ABC does dramas very well. I really liked Switched at Birth, up until the last season which got kind of crazy and I just stopped watching... And Once Upon A Time only did so well because of Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, and that's show is going downhill fast. I watched the first two episodes and then s…

How the Enneagram Can Help You Get to Know Your Characters

Hey everyone! It's been a while... I've been a terrible blogger the past month and now it's nanowrimo and Thanksgiving is in two weeks and I've been procrastinating writing a blog post.

Over the past month I've been going to this class at my former church about leadership and the Enneagram. I heard about the Enneagram when I first started going to Grace (they all are crazy about the Enneagram) and I honestly thought it was another one of those sort of dumb, overrated personality tests. Don't get me wrong, I love a good personality test, and I like the Meyer's Briggs personality test, but the Enneagram just seemed kind of weird... But after the first week of this class, the pastor teaching about the Enneagram had me hooked. I found it so fascinating and interesting and it's scary accurate guys. Like seriously, almost everything it says about my number is like 100% me, even the deep, personal stuff. Since the class is at church, we're learning about …
