BCWR Wrap up 2020 Blog Header - BWC Readathon Wrap-Up: Reading Progress + Creative Challenges!

Hai Beautiful! Success is a lie! Okay, so that intro line may be a little harsh. I consistently set super high standards for myself without learning each and every time and consistently failing, it’s hard to believe in success. Let me backtrack…  I participated in the second round of the Because We Can Readathon; Travel Edition, last week. It is always a fun time to be creative, release daily videos and try (and fail) to read books for all the […]

Hai Beautiful! I love a good coming-of-age novel! This was the most fun I’ve had reading a young adult contemporary in a long time. It was raw with feeling, emotion and youthful ignorance. Every young woman can learn from this novel and everyone who’s lived this can laugh and enjoy the experience. Goodreads Summary When her parents announce their impending divorce, Natalie can’t understand why no one is fighting, or at least mildly upset. Then Zach and Lucy, her two […]

Dealing With Writing Insecurity 2020 SW Header - Writing & Insecurities (SW#66)

Hai Beautiful! Writing is scary! I wanted to write this post ever since I changed my mindset regarding my writing. Recently I stopped telling myself that “ignoring your WIP is not the same as giving up,” and “you can’t be scard of a writing project!” and started trying to understand the reason why I was indeed ‘giving up’. Once I’d identified what the hell I was so damn scared of, I was able to start working on ways to make the writing […]

Hai Beautiful! Okay, that title may be a few letters too long… It’s about time I update you all on my WIP progress, methinks. Although, embarrassingly, I haven’t been writing lately and posting this novel has added that pressure that I thought I was ready for, but as it turns out, I don’t think I am. If you are new or haven’t yet seen any previous writing posts, I am pleased to inform you that I am writing another ‘novel’! […]
