Blog Tags Are Taking Over the Universe

Run, run, as fast as you can

You can’t hide from me

I’m the blog tag … girl

I’m a terrible poet.

And yes, I do realize that with just one post a week, spending it on blog tags when a great deal of my followers have said they actually don’t read the blog tags is probably a stupid thing for me to be doing.

But what do I care? I can be stupid whenever I want. *dances*

Moanings of a Brain Dead Teen

Yesterday was Easter, and now we have a very light week of school as my dad’s on vacation (#homeschoolcool). And let me tell you, I need it.

My mind is a lot of spinning cogs and gears, all whirling a hundred miles a minute. When you throw in algebra mixed with shapes, ancient languages mixed with translation sheets, animals mixed with science, and add a generous dose of history, government, grammar, and essays, the cogs stop spinning.

I’m not joking. This is not a test. My brain is dead.

Flowers, Part 6

That’s right! The final part of Flowers has finally arrived. Are you excited? Crying? Regurgitating? Biting your nails? Rolling your eyes and returning to your Reader/Inbox so to read better posts? Are you not even reading this?

Well, I’m sure you’ve having one of those emotions at this current moment in your life. Treasure this moment! It’s not coming ’round again, dude. Although … I’m not really a YOLO girl … y’know … YOLOUYHJ (you only live once unless you have Jesus) is my style.

I can assure you, however, that this post is a little better than my previous Flowers parts because I added images! Images make stuff better. Or … so everyone tells me. To me, they just make it take longer for stuff to load …

Parts 1 and 2 ~ Part 3 ~ Part 4 ~ Part 5

Absolutely True and Extremely Redundant Facts About the Underground Railroad

theundergroundrailroad

When you read that title, you probably rolled your eyes a little. “Oh, no, now she’s doing boring ol’ history posts. Reveries is going to the dogs. Time to unsubscribe …”

Well, stop right there. No unsubscribing is allowed. First, you’re going to enjoy this post. Second, if ‘first’ proves untrue, you should know that I probably won’t be making a lot of posts like this because I never research … so ….

Okay, I’m kidding. I do research sometimes. Just … less than I should.

Flowers, Part 5

Well, ladies and gents, it’s time for part 5 of our serial story, Flowers. There’s just one more part to go after this! Can you believe it? I’m planning on editing it, maybe looking into a cover designer, and publishing it on Kindle.

As far as me supposedly being on a once-a-week schedule … I felt like posting today. *shrugs* My blog, my rules …

Parts 1 and 2 ~ Part 3 ~ Part 4


Part Five

That night, Adele awoke to the sound of rain pounding on the roof. The house creaked and sighed as the wind pounded against it. The door to the bedroom flew open; she sat up with a gasp. A flash of lightning illuminated Judy’s face, eyes wide with fright.

“Judy,” Adele said slowly. “What’s wrong?”

Responsibility

Hello All! I decided to share with you a post from the blog I co-author on, Send the Light. The subject is “Responsibility.” I’d love it if you headed over there and read it … and maybe even gave me your thoughts, as I’m not sure I said anything legible. 😉

SEND THE LIGHT

responsibility

Nowadays, people just don’t want to take responsibility for themselves.

If you get pregnant, it’s okay. You don’t have to deal with it. Just get an abortion. If you’re underage, your parents will have to pay for it anyway. You don’t have to take responsibility.

If you don’t want to get a job, it’s okay. You don’t have to deal with it. That’s what Obamacare, food stamps, and such are for. You don’t have to take responsibility.

If you riot and destroy personal property, it’s okay. You don’t have to deal with it. The government will ignore it. You don’t have to take responsibility.

If you reveal national secrets, it’s okay. You don’t have to deal with it. We’ll let you run for president. You don’t have to take responsibility.

Even if you’re not guilty of any of these things, you’re not taking responsibility for something, aren’t you? I imagine everyone here…

April 2017 Dares

Well, March has past, and it’s time to celebrate its going because, to be honest, it really didn’t go so well. Yes, unlike Emily Dickenson, great poet though she may be, I welcome April with open arms.

welcome spring

March and I … we had a falling out this year. We were playing soccer, he insulted me, I slammed him against the wall of the basketball court (yes, we were playing soccer in a basketball court …), he ran away to his momma crying about his boo-boos, I got in trouble … wait, no, that was me and my brother …

Someone needs to tell that kid, “No blood, no guts, no game.”

Now, on with the dares! (notice my sleek new way of doing them! Kinda …)

I’ve a Favor to Ask

Against my better judgment, I decided to post quickly today to ask you to take a survey which will determine the future of Reveries. *waves hand dramatically*

Okay, not really. No matter what responses I get, a few things will probably remain … rambling about my novels and my twisted sense of humor, for instance. However, there are some things that can and will change … and I’d like your input.

So, without further ado, click here to go view the survey. In case you didn’t get it the first two times, here it is again. *is obnoxious*

Please not that the survey (#4) is completely anonymous. Nothing you say can offend me because for all I know you’re Hillary Clinton, and I don’t give a skunk’s pajamas about your opinions anyway.

TTFN!

p.s.

What do you think about my new sign-off? I think it’s fairly classy. Did you take the survey? (Yes, that was #5 …) How are you doing on this last day of before Camp NaNoWriMo? Prepare to write? Watching other people struggle to prepare and laughing maniacally?

Your opinions are needed. Even though no one cares what you think, Hillary.

Okay, I’m just kidding. Someone must care about you … it just ain’t me …

10 Tips for Surviving Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNoWriMo (at least April Camp NaNoWriMo) is even crazier than actual NaNoWriMo.

You know why? Because NaNoWriMo is in November. Soccer is over, school is dragging, it isn’t Christmas yet, and you’re just trudging through life like a tree. (What? I stand by that metaphor …) You want something exciting to happen, and if it’s anything, NaNo is exciting.

April, however? I don’t know about you, but by April, my brain is exhausted. It just doesn’t want to do anything anymore. (Hence, the hiatus we’re currently experiencing.)

As you can see, surviving Camp NaNoWriMo is indeed a daring feat. So, here are ten things you can do to make it through the grueling event without passing out. (And yes, only about half of these are serious …)

How to Use Pinterest as an Author

pinterest 1

Pinterest is one of those things that most people have … but very few people use.

Sure, you dink around on it for an average of ten hours a day and now you feel like you’re attached to your account at the waist (you laughed, you cried, you smiled … you don’t take that kind of relationship lightly). But does anyone actually have a reason for being on there?

Most would say no.

As an author, I say yes.

Let’s talk about that. (Look at me, getting all Rhett&Link-ish!)
