Five Fall Favorites, Day 5: Indie Published

fivefallfavorites

Hello ladies and gents!

Welcome to my blog … and to my fifth post in Five Fall Favorites 2017! I’m sure you remember the amazing blog party we did last year, and if you don’t, this invitation will give you the highlights:

(By the way, the constant repetitiveness is a little … sad … but you know what? THE PURPOSE IS THE BOOKS NOT THE INTRO. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.)

A Quick Update from a Flustered Writer

a quick update from a flustered writer

I can see your skepticism when you read the title. You’re giving me the ol’ skeptical eye again.

Flustered? you say. Girl. You are sixteen. You need to clillax. The world will take care of itself …

NO IT WON’T. THE WORLD NEEDS ME TO MANAGE IT. The world is practically helpless without my guidance. I’m just surprised it survived 6,000 years without me. Thankfully, I’m here, and the world can chillax. However, the Keeper of the World cannot rest.

Writing Plans: Why They Can Be Disastrous

writing plans

I really hate to admit this, but writing is a form of art.

Why do I hate to admit this? Well, I don’t like to think of writing as an art because artists of all sorts tend to get into this attitude of laziness.

“It’s art. Art can’t be rushed.”

Most of the time, this is an excuse for laziness. Oh, don’t you dare give me that look. It is, too! “I can’t paint right now – the muse isn’t with me.” THE MUSE ISN’T WITH THOSE EPISODES OF SHERLOCK YOU’RE BINGE-WATCHING, EITHER, SWEETIE.

Two Years and a Day

Two Years and a day

As of yesterday, I’ve been blogging for two years.

And, in the general scheme of things, two years isn’t a long time. However, in the general scheme of blogging … well, as a non-professional blogger, that’s semi-long, right? Right? (Oh, who cares what you think. It feels like a long time to me. Who are you to hold my self-worth in the balance?)

Since my first post, I’ve come a long way. More specifically, I’ve come a long way since my first posts, which were all pretty awful.

When I started Reveries, I didn’t really expect to use it as anything more than … well, an advertising venue, if you will. However, I’ve really come to care about blogging, and so … here I am. Not dead yet. Just give it some time.

Money + Plans for Money + Other Stuff

Money + Plans for Money + Other Stuff

I was just thinking along, minding my own business, when suddenly, it hit me.

I’m going into my last year of school.

After I’m finished, I intend to get a job, save money, and take some community college courses for the first year. And … those are honestly my only plans.

I mean, I want to be an English lit teacher, assuming some amazing guy doesn’t walk into my life (magically) before then, but … I’m not 100% sure that’s really what I want to do with my life.

I Am Sixteen (Goin’ On Seventeen)

I Am Sixteen

Last year I did a post on my birthday which was mostly excited and random and unintelligible. I did some blog tags and then spouted a bunch of random ‘facts.’

However, there was also a ranty section at the bottom where I discussed how my birthday was going awry, how depressed I was, etc. And yes, it didn’t turn out like I’d planned, which was really sad.

However, I’ve decided not to be so pouty (spellcheck says that’s not a word …) about my birthday this year.

This year, the DMV has decided to delay me getting my license until September 6th because it’s “busy.” (And yes, it probably actually is, but I’m pretending that the DMV is doing this on purpose just to break my heart.) And my dog is dying*.

*Which is true, but totally unrelated to my birthday.

June Wrapup + Hiatus

Wowza … July already? I know I’ve said this practically every month, but time flies. Time is like the jet plane of flying. I dislike time mightily …

I feel like I didn’t do a lot in June, but I did publish two books. So that includes a lot of formatting and sweat and blood and such. #NoBloodNoGutsNoGame #OrNoBook*

Anyways, let’s move on! Well, actually, we’re moving back ’cause we’re reviewing June. Which reminds me of how much reviewing I need to do. *shivers*

*My friend Bailey told me that I need to capitalize the first letter of #hashtags with more than one word so it’s easier to read. Like #IDontKnowWhyImHashtagging But no punctuation. ‘Cause even I won’t break that rule …

TDS and IvIn Blog Tour: Wrap-Up

blogtourgraphic

That’s right … we’ve finally reached the end of the blog tour! Two winners have been chosen (one for USA, one for International) and a name will be drawn from my list of newsletter subscribers for their choice of an ebook.*

Before you see who the winners are, I have a few (other) announcements.**

*This will be announced in my newsletter later today.
**Because obviously you need to know who won, but I like to be infuriating. Even though you’ll probably skip ahead like the bad person you are. #SinNature

TDS and IvIn Blog Tour: Day 4

blogtourgraphic

Day 4 has finally arrived, and today I’ve made some slight changes in the way this tour will be running. So, without further ado, I’ll be telling you about them. Because I don’t believe in keeping poor, innocent readers waiting.

Vlogs will be every other day instead of every day. I’m sorry, but don’t you think that would be too many vlogs otherwise? Also, all the posts would be three years late (instead of just two …)! So, there will be a post today, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday (which will be a wrap-up/exciting announcements post).

The Q submissions for the Q&A post will be wrapping up next Tuesday, the 27th. Hopefully, the Q&A video will be posted on the 29th. Which … I guess is what I originally planned, now that I think about. But I needed another announcement. ‘Cause I said “announcements.” XD

Other than that, nothing has really changed. The schedule has some minor edits, but that shouldn’t cause anyone too much bother.

TDS and IvIn Blog Tour: Day 3

blogtourgraphic

Duh-duh-duuuuuh! It’s day 3! I’m afraid the vlog will be out a little late today (I’ll add it to this post and then publish it on my social media as soon as I can), but the rest is up and running for your enjoyment.

Although … I’m not sure “up and running” is the correct terminology to use. I mean, it’s not a machine … unless it’s a Blog Machine instead of a Blog Tour. Ooh, I like that! “ We’re made up of many parts, and some are more oiled that others … specifically, the engine isn’t running ….” #SlamYourselfSaturdayOnAThursday

I really need to stop beating up on poor little Kell Bell. She’s such a sweetie, and she doesn’t deserve it. *refers to self in third person*
