Here’s an easy and free contest for writers of young adult fiction:
It lasts until April 9th.
I’m entering in it myself, so let’s see if I have any luck.
I went to a funeral today.
The sun was out and made it seem a little less cold.
Not feeling too well.
My little project is about sixteen pages now.
Hopefully, I’ll finish it during the summer.
For the last two books I read, I posted my reviews elsewhere(Goodreads, LibraryThing, Amazon).
But I want to say for those who have the time, they should definitely look into them.
I’m going to eat spaghetti now.
This week is my spring break.
I’ve done absolutely nothing but shiver from the cold.
Yesterday, I was very angry because of a mishap with UPS.
I gave them a piece of my mind when they had the gall to ask me to give feedback(after giving me a ‘sorry’ for their mistake they refused to fix).
Anyway, I received an advance reading copy for a book: For Such a Time by Kate Breslin.
I’m six chapters into it, and I absolutely love it.
Beautiful writing, insight, and characterization.
I’ll write a review after I finish.

I’ve been sick for the past few days and haven’t felt like doing anything.
Still patiently waiting for my books to arrive in the mailbox to give me something to do.
I’m thinking about rereading Divergent.
The other two books in that series, I need to buy them whenever I have money(which will be a long time).
I’m not sure if my local library has them, but I hardly go to town..anyway.
“Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.”
― Gustave Flaubert
Today(or should I say yesterday) was a tough day. My family and I desperately need to move for our health’s sake, but there are a million problems and reasons why we cannot. Life is complicated and everything requires money.
“Money doesn’t buy happiness.”
It would solve all my problems, actually.
And I would be extremely happy.
No more worrying about food, shelter, and heat(it has been miserably cold).
On another note, I started a “project.”
Trying my hand with YA writing.
I know electronic books are all the rage these days.
Nooks, e-readers, and whatever else.
I do not like them. My eyes strain to read pages upon pages on a screen.
It’s very impersonal.
I love the smell and feel of books.
I like looking and touching the spines on my bookshelves.
I own them and can reread them without replacing tablets and buying batteries.
What if something happened to cause zombies to roam the earth?
How would you survive?
Okay, really, who cares about that?
We have survival mostly covered.
But could you imagine not having your favorite foods(candies) anymore?
I’m an extremely picky eater, so I would probably be murdered for complaining about food and hunger all the time.
My ‘zombie’ diet would be potatoes and whatever certain canned food I could find, much less of anything else.
This is a list of books that I plan to read and review this month on this blog and on Goodreads(since I won these two).
Note: This list will change and hopefully grow longer.
1. Flesh and Blood – Daniel Dersch
2. For Such a Time – Kate Breslin
I can’t wait to begin reading both of these titles.
They seem to be very promising.
And I will keep you posted.
So I decided to make a blog.
Book reviews, creative writing exercises, and random musings of everyday life.
That’s what I plan to do with this little ole’ thing and hopefully remember to post something regularly.
Let me introduce myself, I am a college student.
I am 21 years old, but I still feel like a fourteen year old kid(some people think I’m around that age by looking at me).
I love books and wasting time on the internet.
..And I want to be an author.
