5 (Absolutely True) Facts about Redheads

As you probably know (because I paste my face all over the internet like a conceited monkey), I have red hair. Well, it’s actually more auburn, but red is red is red. Even if it’s not. *makes sense*

There are a lot of myths floating around about redheads. For instance, some people believe all redheads are witches. Like, not witches as in mean people, but witches. As in they ride on broomsticks. This is untrue. Trust me.

However, there are many things that bind all people of scarlet locks together. Here are the top five.

Completely Random Updates

Yesterday, I went through my list of post ideas and tried to pick one that would be perfect to publish today. I considered writing about how you should write, but I just posted about naming characters. I consider rambling about my books, but I’ve done that way too much already.

Then I considered not posting. But I felt like that would be a bad way to kick of my new, two-post-a-week schedule (more on that later). So … what should I post?

“Completely random updates?” Why not. I haven’t anything lamer to do today.

May 2017 Dares

Whoa. It’s … it’s May already? But … but … I wasn’t finished with April yet! *sobs* I WANT MORE APRIL!!! I want to spend more time working on Once a Stratton. I want to have more time to work on IvIn and TDS.

I don’t want more of this weather, though. Rain, rain, rain. I love rain, but there’s a certain kind of rain that’s just not pleasant … and the kind we’ve been having is bad rain. Bad, bad rain. *glares at rain*

Really, though, April was an improvement of March, but still stressful (as some *cough, cough* earlier posts may have stated). I always feel like I haven’t accomplished much (and, according to my parents, this is true).

But maybe I have accomplished some stuff. So, before moving on to May, let’s take a peek at April and see what happened.

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

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 …

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!)

In Which I Try to Improve Myself

anewschedule

A couple days ago, I drummed up a new schedule for my *clears throat important* personal improvement.

I’m getting up at 6:30 every morning (except on the weekends).

I’m going to bed at 10:30 (well, more like 11:30 … or later … but I’m trying).

I’m getting all my jobs done earlier than I did before.

However, most importantly, I’m allotting special times for writing, editing, blogging, training Riley, practicing my clarinet, reading the Bible, and all that other lovely stuff … most of which I actually enjoy doing but just don’t get time for!

I decided to share a copy of my schedule with you. I’ve posted it on my board in my room (along with all my goals and stuff), so it’s official. 🙂

Click here to view my schedule!

Most of the times are approximate. For instance, I claimed that I’m not going to be done with school and lunch until 2:00. Weeeeell, today I was down at 1:30 and most days it’s earlier. However, am I changing the schedule? No. Why? Because giving myself extra time is really working for me.

Well, that’s all for today, folks! I know this was short, but as a general rule there will be shorter posts on Fridays. So. Here we are on a Friday. Being brief. *bows*
