Random Ramblings, #3

Bookish Ramblings

1. I’ve been avoiding Wintersong for awhile because I thought I would hate it, but in all honesty, I kind of like it. I love darker stories, especially when they’re creepy and dreamlike. Wintersong definitely fits those descriptors, so I’m not sure why I didn’t pick it up before. 

2. My husband and I got rid of our TV in our bedroom, and I’ve been reading so much more. I’m not even that crazy about watching television, but I guess it was a bit of a distraction.  

Writing Ramblings

1.  I’m such a slow writer. I’m definitely not someone who just gets everything down on paper quickly. I put way too much thought into each word, each sentence. At least with creative writing…I don’t do this with my blog (obviously haha). I guess it probably makes my writing better the first round, but I’m starting to think I need to let go and just write. But how the hell do I do that?!

2. I’m really conscious of being too obvious. I hate reading a predictable book, so I would hate to write one. But it is hard, because I’m not always sure if something is going to be obvious to my reader. Of course things are obvious to me because I know where the story goes…but yeah, I struggle with that. 

Personal Ramblings

1. I miss hiking, so I’m excited to live somewhere where the weather isn’t too hot. It went from winter to summer where I’m from, and it was miserable! I pretty much haven’t been on a good hike since February just because of weather. It was either storming or  miserably hot. There was no in-between. 

2. There’s a PHYSICAL Amazon bookstore here. This might kill my personal budget.

    I refuse to have a television in the bedroom. Luckily my husband agrees. We tend to watch tv together downstairs, and not that much of it, so we don’t need one upstairs.

    I have not been writing much lately. I go through stages. I think it is really hard to be objective when it comes to your own writing. Maybe we all need writing buddies 🙂

      It’s so much nicer not having a television in the room!

      Definitely. It’s so hard to be objective. And I totally need a writing buddy to hold me accountable haha

      That’s good to hear! I actually had to take a break from reading it because I moved across the country, but now that I’m settled, I’m ready to pick it up again!
