I'm a writer studying to be a non-profit social media manager and trying not to lose the childish magic of storytelling.

I love jazz music almost as much as I love dogs and exploring my city's downtown square. I have also been known to eat 2000 calories of Chipotle burritos in one sitting. :)

    I haven't done anything on Movellas in months (besides read a few stories here and there). Then I remembered this morning that I had planned on doing a summer-long project on here, so here I am.

    If you'd like to follow my last summer at home before I go away to college, favorite this story so that you'll get notifications to check back every day!
    88 Days: A Journal MemoirI graduate from high school next year, which means that I only have one summer left free of bills and adult responsibilities. So the only logical thing...

    I've started delving into my first full-length novel this evening (plans have been up in the air, but now I'm finally getting things in motion) :) I'd love to have someone to help critique chapters/scenes as I write them and, when I'm done, brainstorm titles and help with final editing bits. Please let me know if you're interested!

    The book is fantasy and sci-fi, if it makes a difference. There are humans, beasts, and magi (wizards and witches) fighting each other across a solar system.

    So I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year, as I've done every year for the past three years, and I have a bit of a problem that I wasn't anticipating...

    I have no novel inspiration.

    School and life has just sucked the creative energy from me and I can't seem to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and write without feeling utterly deflated halfway through the first sentence.

    What do?

    I would lurk on various writerly sites and character quizzes and prompt things and such until you find one thing that excites you - like one character or one place or one random line from the middle of the story you haven't written yet, then just go with it and base your entire thing off that and see if you can ramble for 50,000 words lol

    ^Sounds like a good idea xD
    Or go through your really old/unfinished work and see if there's something you like the idea of playing around with and writing about for nano?

    mumbled "I'M BACK WITH TWO QUESTIONS AND AN EXPLANATION"

    First of all, hi! It's been awhile - two months, to be exact. Not because I grew out of the website or because I stopped writing (in fact, I actually do it much more frequently now) - I have my own blogging business now. Since I've just decided to do blogging professionally and make money from it, I've been devoting all my time and energy to the blog and focusing less on creative writing. I don't plan on stopping with writing short stories and things anytime soon, but I do want to take the time while my blog is starting out to focus on that.

    Anyhoo. That said, I have two questions for you - one blog-related and one personal.

    1) What are some books that I should put on my summer reading list? (This will be a blog post next week.)
    2) I think I may be on the verge of getting into my first serious romantic relationship. I won't bore you with the details - clearly we both have feelings for each other or I wouldn't be concerned. There are two big issues with this, though: he's four years older than me and he was just inducted (?) into the army. Now those two things alone would normally put me off at my young age (I'm almost 16), but I believe that because we love and respect each other we could actually make it work. What advice would you give me/us if we do decide to try this out?

    If you're looking for something more funny and teen-ish, I'd suggest Me and Earl and The Dying Girl. If you're looking for something more inspirational and philosophical, I'd suggest Zen and The Art of Motercycle Maitenence.

    As for the boy situation, one of my good friends is in the service, as well as my best friends boyfriend. And after the first few months, but it's gone pretty smoothly in talking with them! So, go for it!

    mumbled "CAMP NANOWRIMO 2016"

    If anyone is planning to do NaNoWriMo and/or Camp NaNoWriMo this year, I've made a group! You can check it out and join here: movellas.com/group/detail/20160326222142..

    Also, here's my Camp NaNoWriMo story:
    Labyrinthine ~ PART II knew an arranged marriage would be complicated. I just didn't know it would involve going to war, killing people, and finding horses named Cow.
