Wind, Sand, and Stars – Book Review

This review is also published on my goodreads and my instagram.

Warning: possible spoilers

I’ll admit I wasn’t a big fan of ‘Wind, Sand and Stars’ when I first started reading it. Now that I’ve closed it’s pages, I don’t love it but it’s not as bad as I first thought it was.  I’m giving it four stars because it was a solid book with vivid descriptions, beautifully written lines, and interesting philosophical beliefs embedded in it’s lines.

However, the prose and writing style that made this story so unique, may have also been it’s partial downfall, in my opinion.

Chit Chat: Writing & Editing Update

It’s been a little while since I’ve chatted with y’all on this blog and I decided it’s time to take a quick moment to update y’all on my current work in progress and just life in general.

I’m sure the are a whole slew of other things that I’ve done this past month, but I’m just writing down the most important of them on the subject of writing.

We Fall Down Preview

“You gave up your right a long time ago, Jake,” Her voice sank lower, clouded with anger and frustration. “Don’t make me kill you too, because I won’t hesitate.”

She could hear him swallow, hard but he played it off, raising his hands in front of himself, as if warding off her attacks. “It wasn’t my fault,” He repeated the mantra of lies she’d heard too many times over the years and despise crawled up her throat and curled her lips. How could I have been so stupid as to begin to trust him again. “It wasn’t my fault.” He whispered it this time at her back as she turned to trail the procession until they reached their an area where she could get a clean shot without getting caught.

Can’t wait to release this piece to Wattpad this march!

Stay Safe.

Best Books on Wattpad 2016 – My Top Ten Picks of the Year

I’ve read a lot of books the past year and a fair share of them were on Wattpad. These are the Wattpad books that made my 2016. They made me laugh, think, cry and scream in frustration. I read some of them over and over again, and they all hold special places in my heart.

I started this list back in the beginning of December and it took me a little while but I narrowed the books, in my library and archive, down to my top ten Wattpad books of 2016. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be.

Exciting News For 2017

large-1

Just a few chapters left to write!

It’s been a couple of dry weeks without much happening, well online at least.  I haven’t posted any of my weekly updates.  It’s my last year of fall finals, midterms, papers, and projects. If I had posted any updates I’m sure they would have all been nonsensical screams of ‘ahhhh’.

I decided to spare y’all.  Like I said at the end of NaNoWriMo, my words were drained from me during the month of November.

Now I’m back and I’m active once again on all of my social media!  If you follow me on my Twitter and Wattpad than you’ve already heard some of the news for the new year!

Silent Stories Said

I am not a talker.

I hate talking. No, I detest it.

I’m still a storyteller though and that’s why I write, that’s why I splice together .mov and .mp4 clips into movies and that’s why I take pictures.  Despite the fact that I hate talking I still love communicating, just with hands and tools not my lips.  I’ve learned to use my words in other creative ways.

I think that’s why I decided to challenge myself with NaNoWriMo this month. I want to see all those words that I bottle up in everyday conversations and speeches come out.  I’m vomiting my mind onto paper for a month and after the past week and half it’s probably the best thing I can do for my mind and my heart.
