Know the Novel - Part Three: It is Written {A Writers Linkup)

Finally I have for you the third and final part of this linkup! To be honest, I wasn't too eager to do this linkup cause, well, I stopped writing after writing the second part of this linkup. But I still planned to do it anyway, and I have been brainstorming on how to make it more interesting than "I basically have nothing for you so I'm writing boring answers". Yeah, no way I am writing a post like that. So anyway, I have thought of ideas and I have more excitement since being encouraged by fellow blogger and fan of this story. Just ahhh, guys, her love for Smoke is just so heart-warming and amazing and it makes me 1000x times more excited and in love with this story. All your encouragement, kind words and fangirling means so much to me, girl. Just thank you, Maggie.💜 1. Firstly, how did writing this novel go all around? Slow, but that's okay cause when I did wrote, it went pretty well. Yeah, I have scenes that suck, but I can fix them. I have fix some of them a

  Aww, I always feel honoured in being tagged. So I was tagged by Julia to do the  #WritingCommunity Blog Award  and I am super excited to be part of this new and unique tag! The Rules: Display the award logo on your site.

(I will certainly try to) And for the questions!!! 1. What does your writing routine look like? All over the place. I'm still figuring it out. I had a routine at the beginning of this year, but I lost by the middle and I haven't picked up any real routine since then. In this post  I talk about my up and down routine in depth on question 10. 2. Is there a genre you love to read but don't write? Mystery, romance, contemporary and historical f

The Reread, Rewrite, Burn Book Tag

Today, I've got a tag (from  Alabama's blog ) that I will probably regret doing. The way it works is that you use a wheel (this one  here ) to help you decide between three books each to reread, rewrite or BURN. There are twelve books and four rounds. To be honest, my plan was to use a random bunch of books so it wouldn't be too hard (I got books that I was okay with burning). But then it's not fair that the three other people before me had to burn their favourite books and be in a lot of pain. So I redid it and now I am doing only 5 stars books.  Every single one is amazing and I'm going to cry. Why did I made this even harder???   First round A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness Cinder by Marissa Meyer Six of Crows by Leigh Burdugo I hate this wheel. Why did it to have pick these??? Also fun fact: When I originally did this, the wheel chose these three so I didn't changed it cause. it. is. so. painful. I can't believe that its first pick ever with ok books it d

"A Wilted Willow" Blog Tour: Book Review and Author Interview

  Today, I've got something special for the blog. As you tell from the title, I had signed up for a Book Release Blog Tour, and I am doing a book review and an author interview for it! I am so excited to be doing this. I haven't known Julia for long or have followed her blog for very long either, but she's so sweet and thoughtful and I just love her blog. I also love her book, which is what I am going to get into soon. But first, the important official stuff. *Clear throat* A Wilted Willow: Revised & Updated Edition is by Julia Witmer. It is a standalone.  Here's the blurb: Day one in fifteen-year-old Mira Miller's home, and a strange man steps through the door that should lead to nowhere. Informing her that a nation from another world needs help defeating a tyrant king with an insatiable taste for power, he presents her a choice: come with him and help, or stay behind and miss out on a chance for adventure. Cadmus Clark, a quiet boy her age who's more than

The Finally Fall (Autumn) Book Tag

I was tagged by the lovely blogger over at  An Attic Full of Paper . And yes, I call fall autumn over here. And here is the link to her post:  The Finally Fall/Autumn Book Tag . (She also calls fall autumn too!) Now, we will jump into the questions as there are no rules! Besides the obvious one to answer the questions. And tag people.  In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting. To be honest, I have a hard time imagining settings really well. It is even harder to know vivid settings. But one, after some thinking, would be Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I don't know if it is a vivid setting for anyone else, but it was for me since (1) I can definitely tell that the settings weren't anything like the movie and (2) I can picture/remember a bunch of scenes from it even after months reading it. (And there are heaps more that I don't remember at all 😂 I blame a lot of that on the movie's visuals clouding my memory).  Nature is beaut
