Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

A couple days ago, I did a post on Things I'm Looking Forward To In College, and this is the opposite post of that. As of this post going on, I have exactly one week until classes begin, and I'm excited (though also a little terrified). However, as I mentioned in my last post, there … Continue reading Things I’m Not Looking Forward To In College

Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

Since I'm going to be starting college in a little over a week, you should probably expect to see many more college-themed blog posts. Probably because my mind will be on college, so it will make keeping up with my blog posts much easier if I don't have to think about two things at once. … Continue reading Things I’m Looking Forward To In College

My Thoughts on Cliffhangers

In a recent book I read and reviewed, Sky Without Stars, I found myself noticing that many of the chapters ended in cliffhangers. While I'm not adverse to having an occasional cliffhanger, I found the constant use of them in that book to be a bit tiring.

However, in the nearly two years I have been … Continue reading How Blogging Helped My Writing

What’s the Point of New Year’s Resolutions?

It’s a new year. And with every New Year comes the dreaded New Year’s Resolutions. I feel as if, at least in American society, there is almost this pressure that you have to make at least one resolution as the year begins. I grew up in a house where New Year Resolutions weren’t really a … Continue reading What’s the Point of New Year’s Resolutions?

Ode to a New Writer: Taking Criticism

Every experienced writer knows that taking criticism is a big part of being a professional writer. You need to have a strong backbone in order to learn and develop. In theory, I think every writer—whether you are just beginning to write your first book or have been writing for twenty years—would agree that we always … Continue reading Ode to a New Writer: Taking Criticism
