NaNoWriMo Winner!/Five Things I'm Thankful For


"Throws confetti and gravy*

How are you spending your Thanksgiving day? I'm spending it cleaning for when Family comes over for dinner tomorrow.

You may be thinking it's not the BEST way to spend your day, but I'm perfectly happy with it considering I've validated my word-count, and am officially a 2013 NaNoWriMo Winner!

Here's a picture for proof!
Sure, I may have gone a bit over, and the Novel still isn't actually FINISHED, but whatever. Personally I consider it a job well done, and I'm very happy with everything I've written!

I know many people who are almost there, or still struggling, or have barely written anything at all! But I think that most people don't understand what NaNoWriMo is all about.

It's not there for you to write 50k words. It's not there for you to finish your book. NaNoWriMo (Or National Novel Writing Month), is there to set realistic goals to get you to WRITE. That's all. If you've written a single word, one thousand word, or 100,000 words this month, you're already a winner!

And I'm not saying that like one of those cheesy things where "Everyone's a winner!", it's honestly the truth. NaNoWriMo is for, mainly, two different people. It's for the people who write all day everyday of their life, who want a new, more intense challenge, but it's also for those who haven't written for a few months, or haven't written in their entire life, and want to get started.

We're all writing, and numbers are just that--numbers.

So keep writing! The world needs your story!

Five Things I'm Thankful For:

  1. I'm thankful first and foremost for God being in my life, for without him literally none of the other four things I'm about to list would be possible. He's brought me through so many good things, and just as many bad things, but made sure I always learned from them and made me better in the process.
  2. I'm thankful for my family and friends. You might wonder why these two go together, because family is family and friends are friends, but in my eyes you choose who your family is, whether you're actually related or not. Family is the people who are always there for you, and who love you, and I definitively have many people like that. I'm thankful for my siblings, my parents, my boyfriend, my distant relatives, and all of the wonderful people put into my life.
  3. I'm thankful for my words. I'm thankful that words were even created! Without my stories I don't know what I'd do!
  4. I'm thankful that we have heat in our house, and electricity. I'm thankful we have warm blankets and coats and shoes. Pretty much, I'm thankful for the little things.
  5. I'm thankful for many, many more things, and I think that's ANOTHER thing I'm thankful for. I have so many great things in my life that I always try to remember, no matter how small.

What are YOU doing this Thanksgiving? What are you thankful for?

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Writing with Music

I promise I haven't forgotten about you guys!

I've been insanely busy writing, trying to finish FORSAKEN before November comes to an end, but I'm able to sneak away for a few minutes to write this!

I want to talk about writing with music, for a minute.

Anytime I plan to get some serious writing done--like when I'm planning on sitting down at the computer for three hours at the least, and ignore all of the internetz, the first step is to put on my headphones and start my playlist.

Most of the time I open up my FORSAKEN playlist, which is full of Jennifer Thomas and Brian Crain and such, OR, on days that I need a little more motivation and excitement, I click over to my playlist titled 'EMOTIONS' which is packed full of lyrical songs that make me happy and have a good tune, such as Twenty One Pilots, Evanescence, and plenty of other songs I've heard on the radio and added.

Music has the power, to me, to make my book better than I ever could have written it. With a soundtrack in the back, I can't spend a bunch of time thinking about which words to use, or worrying about if it sounds good, ect. This is a good thing. Editing comes later, and having music to half-way distract me keeps me from critiquing AS I'm writing, which I think is what most authors struggle with.

It also has the power to set a scene. Is it an emotional song? Is it a fun, pop song? Is it full of sad violins and quiet pianos? Every song carries an emotion, so be careful which song you're playing when, because, believe it or not, it has power over you, as the writer, to accidentally seep into your writing as well. You expected that scene you wrote to be lighthearted, yet you were listening to a hard rock song? Yeah, think again.

Music has influenced my writing to the point that, if a good enough song is playing, something COMPLETELY unexpected happens, and I have to rearrange my entire plot just because a certain song played.

This is just how it is for ME, of course--I'm not sure about other writers. I've heard some writers need complete silence, others with a rainfall sound in the background--we each have different quirks. What's yours?

Do you play music while writing? Does music influence your writing? What is your favorite artist to listen to?

Thanks for reading, and I'll see you soon!

(Actually, I won't SEE you, because this is a blog and technically I'm looking at a computer screen right now, but... Whatever, you get the point.)

One Thing You're Excited About


Last day, guys!

*Confetti... Excited... EXCITED*

One Thing You're Excited About

I'm excited about everything, as you could clearly see above? Anything can make me excited!

But, I'd have to say I'm MOST excited for my books.

I've been going through this constant battle, you see, of which of my two series I would like to get published first.

It's a big question. It may not seem like it, right?

"Just make both look pretty and you'll know when the time is right--right?"


At least for me, it doesn't work like that. I need to know which book to put my blood, sweat, and tears into through revising and editing. I can't just go half and half. I've NEVER been that person.

I still haven't decided. I've been contemplating and Praying and DYING for an answer, for a goal and the decision to be made, and nothing's come yet, but I know that it will all work out in the end, and be the best choice.

Good things come to those who wait, so I will continue to wait and listen and hope that I will just KNOW which book I need to prepare for publishing first.

Either way, I'm VERY excited for them! My books and characters always just make me happy, and I love telling their stories.

Is there anything YOU'RE excited for? Do your books my you happy, too?

Thanks for reading my Thirty-Day-Blog-Challenge! I'll be back soon with more 'informational' posts full of cat pictures and cheesy jokes!

Blog-Post Link/Five Weird Things that You Like


My Guest-post on the wonderful Julie Musil's Blog is HERE!

I hope you all enjoy it, and learn as much from it as I did while putting it together!

I'm totally happy dancing right now.

With quite a bit of exploding.

It's a huge honor for me to have been able to do this, but I've always been like this tiny little lone wolf who mops around Tumblr and the Blogger-World--but for someone else to want to hear the howl? And actually LIKE it?

Mind-blowing to me.

Okay, I'm done. I'll go explode elsewhere now!

Day 29:

Five Weird Things that You Like

  1.   I mean, I like writing and reading, and to some people that's weird. As upsetting as that is.
  2. I like apples and marshmallows--yes, together. It really tastes wonderful. I suggest you try it.
  3. I like to learn. Actually--correction--I LOVE to learn. About anything and everything, the world is fascinating to me, and I just really enjoy studying about it.
  4. I like writing dialogue. Dialogue is my favorite.
  5. I like classic Hungarian music. Don't ask me why--I just do.

What are five weird things that YOU like? Do you find them weird yourself?

Thanks for reading!

NEWS REVEAL!/Somewhere You'd Like to Move to or Visit


Before today's Writer-Blog Question is answered...

I can finally share with you the super secret awesome news!

*Drumroll....Intense Lighting*

I have been asked to write, and have delivered, a guest Blog Post on Julie Musil's Blog about anti-heroes!

*Confetti blasts... Explosions... Happy dances*

The post will be up on her Blog TOMORROW, featuring little old me rambling my face off about my favorite characters--anti-heroes.

She was a really great joy to work with, and I hope you stop over there on her Blog, because she has some really awesome stuff!

So... I'm really sort of terrified and excited and nervous and laughing uncontrollably at the thought of it going out into the world tomorrow. I'll be sure to attach a Link to it the minute it's posted, and I hope you all like it!

And--the best part? This is a little spoiler for other things I have planned, coming perhaps sometime in December/ January! But, Shhh! Spoilers...

And NOW:

Day 28:

Somewhere You'd Like to Move to or Visit

It might seem a little odd, but I really want to visit Florida.

The weird part is that I'm not CRAZY about beaches, nor do I even know anything about the place to make me interested, besides the fact that I was born there.

THAT, and Venice, Italy, of course. Maybe some place like Rio, as well.

Oh, and London!

...Safe to say--I have many place I would love to visit, and would love to travel the world if I had the money!

Where would you like to visit? What's your favorite place to be?

Thank you all for reading, and I'll see you back here tomorrow!

Day 24, 25, 26, and 27 in the Writers-Blog Challenge!

I'm back from my awesome Writers Retreat of awesomeness!

(I know--you just missed me SO much, right?)

Out on the porch I decided
to ride the rocking horse
while writing.
Over the whole weekend, I got perhaps 15k words written, giving me a total word count of 40k words!

This is how I do Camp-Fires!
Yes, only 10,000 more words to go until I complete NaNoWriMo's goal! Though I have only just reached the halfway point in the actual PLOT, so I will more than likely be going a bit over.

 It was a wonderful time off with some wonderful friends, and I'm so glad I got to go!

And now, I have day 24, 25, 26, and 27 in the Writers-Blog Challenge to answer!

Day 24:

Five Words/Phrases That Make You Laugh

  1. Tater. It just makes me laugh.
  2. Wonky. Heheheheh.
  3. Flail.
  4. Snort.
  5. Kerfuffle.
 Day 25:

Something You're Currently Worrying About

There IS one thing I'm worrying about, but it will be resolved at the end of the night, so don't fear.

Want to know what it is?

You'll have to wait until tomorrow for the grand reveal!

Day 26:

Things You Like and Dislike About Yourself

I'm sure I've stated this many times before: I'm happy with who I am.

Though, sometimes I dislike about myself that I get to feeling small. Many people and especially Authors do this, I think. Get to thinking about the whole big world and think: "How could I possibly make a difference?"

I used to feel small a whole bunch, but through my writing I've become better at speaking my mind and being my own person, and not worrying about little things. I guess you could say the bravery of my characters has sort of leaked off onto me.

But overall, I'm secure in who I am.

Day 27:

A Quote You Try to Live By

"Do or do not. There is no try."-Yoda.

Yes, I have taken my life advice from a little green dude, but I firmly believe the smaller voices have bigger things to say.

I use this quote in every area on my life, and when you put it into a decision of "Do it or don't, there is no in between", it makes the answer much easier.

I never want to go halfway. Everything in my life I do it all, the best I could possibly do it, or not at all.

What about you? What are your favorite words or your favorite quote? Share in the comments!

Thanks for reading!

Writers Retreat

Hey guys!

Sorry--No Writers-Blog answer today!

Me and my Family are literally about to walk out the door to stay the weekend at the Cabin with some friends, as a short vacation!

Sadly, there is no internet connection up there, so, naturally, no Blog posts until Monday, and I'll catch up then.

I'm looking forward to the atmosphere of the Cabin because, honestly, it's just one big writers dream.

There's hammocks and warm fires and beautiful views, so I'm going to be spending all my time at my computer, OBVIOUSLY, because I'm considering this my own Writers Retreat!

I hope you fellow Writers get many words done as well!

Happy Writing!

Your Favorite Scent/Something That You Miss

Day 22 and 23, anyone???

Yesterday was an incredibly wonderful busy-yet-relaxed day, and for the first time in a long time, I just felt like sitting on the couch playing Video Games.

Yes, that's right: I hardly even touched my computer after I completed my 2k word goal for the day.

It was actually wonderful, and I will be sure to be taking more breaks like that more often. It's a good idea to refuel on life experiences for stories, right?

Day 22:

Your Favorite Scent

Burning wood. Oak trees. Anything woodsy or smoky--something I could imagine smelling on a cold fall day. Like, really, I have an obsession with these smells.

Day 23:

Something That You Miss

Hmm... I guess I miss many things, considering I've moved all over the place in the course of my life, so I've had to leave many things behind.

I miss especially my old friend that I met a what seems like MILLIONS of years ago, but sadly had to move away. She and her family are really the only people from my past that I've made sure to keep in contact with, and the fact that we are still best friends proves that distance doesn't matter.

I also miss our old family cat, Zoe, who died a little while ago.

I miss my ATREA story right now, considering I'm writing on my OTHER series for NaNoWriMo, and all I want to do is join their adventures again in Re-Writing.

I miss my bedroom at our old house. I don't know if it was just because I was in that age where everything seemed simple and magical, but my bedroom was like a wonderland to me, and I still remember it that way.

What do YOU miss? What are your favorite scents?

Thanks for reading!

How You Hope Your Future Will Be Like

Day 21 of the Writers-blog Challenge!

We're almost to 30, you guys!


And now to the question, which I will have much fun answering:

How You Hope Your Future Will Be Like

I am hopeful of many things in my future, but I'm doing more than 'hoping'.

I'm working towards my future and my dreams everyday, as I believe everyone should do if they REALLY want something.

I'm going to be published. This isn't really a question, considering ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I will eventually hold a copy of my book in my hands, whether it's through self publishing, through a company, ect.

I know that I'll make my book the best it could ever be through rewriting and editing and long nights with a bunch of caffeine and chocolate.

I hope my future to be full of inspiring moments, lots of cats, wonderful friends and family, and writing a TON of other books!

I want to write until I can't physically write anymore, because I will never run out of stories to tell, as most of us won't.

I hope sometime I'll have fans of my work, even if it's just one person who read my book and liked it, and I will be the kindest I can be to them. I am a firm believer in the fact that anyone can publish and write a book, but if the readers don't BUY it, then it just collects dust on the shelf. I would owe them all of my thanks and treat them like MY heroes.

I look forwards to every step of my future that God is planning for me, and I will trust Him to guide me through it all, like he already has so far.

What do YOU hope your future will be like?

Thanks for reading!

Five Items You Want/Your Fears

YES I know I'm terrible at keeping up, because I missed yesterday's Writers-Blog Post but at least this excuse is a really great one:

I could not put a post together yesterday because I spent every hour writing in NaNoWriMo's NaNoThon!

It's where people all over the world met in person, live-stream through YouTube, or on Twitter to write as much as possible every hour. It really helped a lot of people get caught up, and I WAY surpassed my goal of writing 2k words and hit 7k instead, leaving me with a total word-count of 20,000 words! NaNoThon really helped me get back into the zone, and I'll be writing some more right after I finish this up!

(And speaking of which--I did one of my first 'word-sprints', where you set a timer for ten/thirty minutes and write non-stop! I did two thirty minute session late last night, and wrote 2k extra words, just because I knew I was being timed. I will be doing it a lot more often now, and I recommend you try it out too!)

Day 19:

Five Items You Want

  1. A Pony. But who doesn't?
  2. There are about a million books I would LOVE to have, but unfortunately I don't have my own personal library to store them in!
  3. A new set of head-phones. One time when I had money (Those were the days.), I saw these children's head-phones at the store, and I figured "Oh, they're that cheap because most people won't have small enough heads to fit!". Of course MY head would fit, because I like to think of myself as a Hobbit (Fun-Sized is so over-rated.). So I was getting all excited and decided to buy them (Also because they were pink, so all bets were off.), thinking how clever the store was for selling them so cheap, because Adults/Teenagers couldn't wear them! Turns out, they must have been so cheap because the sound doesn't stay inside the headphones very well. It's like, if you play music through them, everyone in your house and Africa can be annoyed by my awesome Writerly music. I still use them, of course, but I would love a bigger, better set!...And that was the story of the time I decided to buy Children's headphones.
  4. A lap-sized dry erase board. I've been wanting one of these to do character time-lines, plot outlining, ect, because I've found I work better with VISUAL time-lines, rather then outlining by Document.
So, if anyone would like to spread the Christmas cheer, you are more than welcome to buy my any/all of the things on this list... You know, just if you feel like it...

I'm just kidding!

...But seriously.

Day 20:

Your Fears

Oh, geez, this isn't a good question. I'm afraid of MANY things!

I'm afraid of the dark, and I think that's the BIGGEST one.

I mean, don't get me wrong--I have an undying hate for spiders, but I've learned how to sort of ignore that sometimes.

Let's see... Wasps, heights (but only if my feet are not touching something solid), roller coasters, horror/scary movies, anything sharp (including needles), Crane's (or any other Bird that is unnaturally large), being alone, being in large crowds...

I think that's the most of them, but I'm sure there's plenty more.


I almost forgot the best one!:

I have this irrational fear that while I'm using the blow dryer, flames will erupt from the end and catch my hair on fire.

...Yes, I know...

But it's legit! I refuse to turn the setting onto hot, the same reason I refuse to lean too close to candles.


And so now you know what a wimp I am, and know how I appreciate my own characters bravery!

What are some things YOU want? What are your biggest fears? Feel free to share!  

Thanks for reading!

Something That You are Proud of/A Problem That You Have Had

I am aware I skipped yesterdays Writer-Blog Question, and will for sure make it up by answering both today!

Day Seventeen:

Something That You are Proud Of

Erm, geez, this is an awkward question. Like, anything I say is bragging!

I do think I have bragging rights over finishing twelve (soon to be thirteen) Novels. Normally, I wouldn't be so freakishly proud for writing, except that I can promise you I have put way too much blood, sweat, and ALL OF THE TEARS into these stories, so, yeah, I deserve to be proud of them, at least.

Day Eighteen:

A Problem That You Have Had

What an odd question, right?

Everyone has problems--big, small, they're all the same!

I don't have any giant problems in my life right now, and the ones I do have I believe life is too short to be constantly worrying over things.

I have many problems I suppose, some so small you would think I've lost my mind to fret about them, but I don't like troubling other's with the problems I should deal with myself and smile through.

But, one that I think many Writers can relate to, is:

I'm writing my NaNoWriMo Novel at the moment, but... I have all of these books I want to start but I have to wait until this month is over!

*Worlds Smallest Violin Plays*

I think that once you dedicate yourself to one book, all of these insanely great ideas come flooding out of nowhere to be obnoxious, because they KNOW you can't write them yet, so they just sit there and tease you from the sidelines! But I am doing my best to cope with the long wait, and I can't wait to reward myself with starting them once I finish my NaNo Novel!

What are you rewarding yourself with after you accomplish NaNoWriMo? Are you going through any big problems? What are you proud of?

Thanks for reading!

Something You Always Think "What If..." About

Day Sixteen of the Writer-Blog Challenge!

Today's question is:

Something You Always Think "What If..." About

This is a very hard question for me, because I honestly love everything in my life, and I wouldn't want it any other way--but, just for fun, I sometimes try to imagine what my life would be like if I never fell in love with words.

What if I was never a writer?

This question horrifies me, but I still like to wonder.

Perhaps I would be a professional Artist or Photographer? If I never loved to write, maybe I would work with Children or Animals. I could be an Explorer who travels the world in search of beautiful sunsets and interesting forests.

Perhaps I would be friendly, and not as shy as I am now. Or perhaps I wouldn't be nice at all!

Instead of books on my shelve, I'd have Music Books, because I'd be the best musician this world has seen!

I could be a Sculptor, creating Pots and Figures every hour of my day.

I could be interesting, or I could be dull. I could be exciting, or I could be grouchy. I could be a Pilot or an Engineer. I could be anyone!

but I'm not. I'm me, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Not that these lives don't sound interesting, but as a Writer, I can still do each and every one of these things.

I can have my character do them. This can be their lives.

I travel worlds and create things--I can, and have done everything through the things I write!

(Plus, I have tried many of these things myself. I consider myself a 'professional Multi-tasker'. Anything that involving creating something, I consider it a Hobby of mine. Sculpting, Piano, Violin, Sewing, Drawing, Painting, Building, and, now, Blogging. Yes, I have many interests.)

What do YOU think What If about? What are your favorite Hobbies? 

Thanks for Reading!

Favorite Animal, Food, and Sport

Day Fifteen, anyone?

Favorite Animal, Food, and Sport

I found it's odd that these three questions were put into the same day, because, really, what do the three even have in common?

But, anyway;

Favorite Animal:

I have a ton of favorite Animals, but I'll try to narrow it down to just my five absolute favorites:

  1. Ducks. Seriously, that just waddle around and make cute noises. How can I resist?
  2. Cats/Kittens. Yes, you saw it coming, right?
  3. Red Panda's, followed shortly by regular Panda's.
  4. Baby Piggies. I'm not sure if I have the same undying love for grown Pigs, but I do know it is certainly present when there are babies involved.
  5. Deer. They're just so adorable.
Favorite Food:

Macaroni and Cheese, forever and always. Followed shortly by Strawberries, Chocolate, and Chocolate covered Strawberries!

Favorite Sport:

Sitting on the couch.

But seriously though, I don't 'do' sports. They make my head hurt and bore me entirely.

What is your Favorite Food? Sport? Animal?

Thanks for reading, and I hope you're all having a wonderful November!

How to Make Ideas Your Own/What You Wore Today

Let's talk about Writing for a minute.

I'm going to real quick cover a Topic that is haunting me today, and I can always seem to get over things if I write them down.

Comparing your book to other books

I can't be the only one who does this every once in a while, right?

I've gotten better at not comparing my words, my stories, my characters, ect, to other authors I love, because I tell myself they have edited/revised that books so many times to make it as beautiful as it is, so don't compare your first draft to someone else's fifteenth.

But, truthfully, it's sometimes a good thing to--no, not compare--but to make sure you're not straight up copying or stealing from someone else's work.

With each of my stories, sometimes even just parts in the story if it's long enough, I can tell exactly what book I was reading at the time I was writing it, what TV show I was watching. I can pin-point exactly where I got that inspiration from, and this is what troubled me.

But this is a normal thing. You can't create something fully on your own--not really. You have to have a basis to start from, something has to inspire you!

My first idea that comes from a TV show/book/ect, is truthfully a lot like the idea it originated from, BUT that's why I choose the second idea, and work hard to make it my own.

I have this fear that someone will read my book one day, and say 'She totally stole that from ----!', and I will feel as if I had failed to create my own thing. I think a lot of Authors fear this.

So, how do we get inspiration from other writers works without stealing, and forever being known as 'the next Harry Potter'?

Let's say you get an idea from the Hunger Games, but instead of fighting to the death, it's slightly changed in one way or another, but still close enough to recognize the source you took it from.

What then?

You disguise it, of course.

You add elements of your own. What if weapons are banned? What if the point wasn't to kill each other, but to join together? What if the whole thing is actually a test of teamwork, but the world always follows their instinctive reaction and thinks it's to destroy each other? (I know, these may be pretty bad references, but you get the point.)

The WHAT IF method saves lives, and that's exactly what I just got finished doing, to turn an idea from 'that one idea I got from the one book', to 'my own idea'.

Like words, like stories, you make ideas your own, and yours alone.

Writer-Blog Question for today:

What You Wore Today

Uhm, Pajamas?  Frosty the Snowman pants and my Camp NaNoWriMo T-shirt, of course! I may also be snuggling my Panda Pillow Pet, but that's totally irrelevant.

What are you wearing today? Do you have any methods for making ideas your own? Feel free to share!

Thanks for Reading!

Your Opinion About Your Appearance and How Comfortable You Are With It

So, am I the only one in love with this wonderful weather? Have I mentioned I love Fall?

Anyway, welcome to Defying Impossible with another Writer-blog Question!

Today is day 13, so let's continue, shall we?

Your Opinion About Your Appearance and How Comfortable You Are With It

Well, I know that most girls hate how they look--They want to look like someone else, someone prettier, someone better than they are, but that's impossible because you are the prettiest you can be. You're not someone else, so stop comparing yourself.

I like my appearance. Sometimes, like everyone, I go through a time or two when I'm feeling really self conscious about how I look, but those days always fade and overall--I enjoy being me.

I like that I'm not tall, but not really short where I have to stare up at people all the time. I'm comfortable in my appearance, most of the time, and other times I smack myself out of it fairy quickly.

I just think people put way too much authority into appearances. It's just a look--just a vessel for the REAL you. Does it really matter so much?

We are not our appearances, so I think everyone should stop judging by looks, stop trying to make themselves look better, because nothing is more perfect than a truly happy person who is happy with you they are.

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!

Five Guys Whom You Find Attractive in Fictional Books

Day Twelve!

Who's excited???

Today's question is:

Five Guys Whom You Find Attractive in Fictional Books

Uhm.. Hmm... How in the world do I narrow it down to five?!

practically every book I read has at least one guy I have a Fictional crush on, but I'll try to pick my favorites.

I'm judging this by not just looks, but attractive personalities and such as well. Pretty much just ALL AROUND ATTRACTIVE PERSONS.

  1. Will Harondale, from the Infernal Devices. You knew it was coming, but he comes first. He has to be not only one of my favorite male characters, but one of my favorite characters of ALL TIME.
  2. Prince Kai, from the Lunar Chronicles. Yes, I think he's precious. PRESHPRESHPRESH.
  3. Keefe Sencen, from Keeper of the Lost Cities. Yes, he's fabulous, all around in every way.
  4. Percy Jackson, from the Percy Jackson Series, OF COURSE!
  5. The Darkling, from the Grisha Trilogy. Yes, I am Team Darkling all the way. Who isn't?
PHEW--That was hard, narrowing it down, but I think I got the one's I love most.

Great characters written by great Authors that I admire in all ways.

And, because I can't stand leaving them out, I have to also give a shout out to the wonderful Jack from Half Upon a Time Trilogy, Leo Valdez, from the Heroes of Olympus, Prosper from the Thief Lord, Jace Wayland from the Mortal Instruments, and Ikuto from Shugo Chara! Because I just love so many people, right?

But, guess what? ALL of these characters have nothing on my Epic real-life Boyfriend. I felt I needed to add that, because I have bragging rights, yes? <3

What are some of your favorite male characters? What about female characters?

Thanks for reading, and Happy Writing! <3

Your Family

Happy November 1st, All!

How many words have you written so far???

I... honestly have not written as much as I would have hoped, but the day isn't over yet, right? I plan to get this party rolling after I finish this post, so let's keep it brief, shall we?

Day Eleven:

Your Family

Well, considering there are Creepers on the internet (Though if you're a Creeper, I hope you're not stalking around my Blog in the first place. Heheh.), I don't feel comfortable sharing as much as I want to say, because, really, I could go on all day about my wonderful Family, so I shall refrain from spilling their awesomeness, kay?

I am the youngest of three, my two older siblings being my Sister and my even older Brother.

My Sister is the one I go to spill out all of my new ideas like Word Vomit, but she listens anyway. Or, pretends to listen, I'm not entirely sure.

My Brother has the skill to look a lot like this.
Yes, be jealous.
My Brother... looks like an Otter if he does this weird thing with his face, but that's totally irrelevant. I guess he's a good at keeping me entertained, and a bit annoyed, naturally.

My Dad is my Cheer Leader, except he's a full grown man, so that's a bit weird sounding. He's always there when I need someone to read something, and I can trust him for unfiltered FeedBack.

My mom is I guess the one who started it all, and walks me through every step. She's me Editor, Adviser, Agent, Coach, Little Nagging Voice, ect. She always puts up with my ramblings, even when I get annoyed at the sound of my voice, myself.

Also part of my Family is my Pets: My adorable Mini Australian Shepherd Puppy, and my old cat Casper, who has been my Best Buddy since I was born!

My whole Family helps me plot, reads some of what I write (Only if I allow them to, such as Halloween Short Stories, Christmas Stories, ect.), and overall is just a huge inspiration to me.

I have the best Fan Base any Author could ever ask for: My Family.

Put Your Music Player on Shuffle and List the First Ten Songs That Play:

So there are the first Ten songs that play. This is from my Playlist titled 'Emotions' which has practically everything under the sun, for any random emotion I need.

 Each of my books has their own Playlist for when I'm writing them, mostly filled with Classical/New Age that fits. If I can see a scene in my head when I hear the song, then it goes into that Playlist.

What's the first ten songs that play on YOUR Playlist? What's your favorite song?

Thanks for Reading, and be sure to check back tomorrow!

Happy Late Halloween!
