Short Story Saturday or 3S

Most day’s I truly don’t know what to blog about. Life often finds me hitting bumps in the road that prevent me from keeping up with the pace of the internet. Can we ever really keep up that kind of pace as writers or readers?

I would like to get my work out more and engage the readers. I’ve decided that Saturday will be a major day around here. On Wattpad I will continue to update my ongoing story, A Road Under Stars and here I’ll post short stories. The short stories will vary when it comes to subjects but let’s see how Short Story Saturday goes! Stay tuned.

Also,

46 Books in 46 Days…(Err… Maybe not)

46 Books in 46 Days…(Err… Maybe not)

In honor of National Read A Book day, Buzzfeed posted an article about 46 books that can be read in one day.

I’m going to read the books on this list in 46 days… maybe. Some of them I own, some of them I’ve never heard of but I can’t wait to discover these new stories. The following books will be omitted from this reading session:

Things Fall Apart (Own it, Read it)

The Dig(Not available at the library, will purchase at a later date)

Great Gatsby (Own it, Read it)

The Outsiders (Read it when I was 12, Don’t want to revisit that)

I was excited when I saw the list posted on my Facebook timeline. I’ve been looking for new things to read now that I have some free time. I’m not really in the mood to read 400 page novels. I’m more in a novella kind of mood and this list seemed perfect for me. I’ve already put in a request for 26 of the books at my local library. I’m going to start this journey this week! It will be nice just to sit in a silent house with a book and my imagination. After reading the books I will blog about my thoughts at the end of the week.

I’ve always heard that it is important to read as much as you write and vice versa. I’ve kind of been out of the habit of reading on a daily basis. I’ll pick up a book, put it down… 200 pages can take me 3 months. Why? Because I’ve been wasting my time with television. As some of my favorite shows have come to an end I’ve found myself just working on personal projects and not picking up new shows to watch. My fall roster includes Sons of Anarchy and Boardwalk Empire. Once those two are complete I will replace those hours with reading time and more writing. I’ve been working on my Wattpad story and my first novel. I really hope that I can get it complete for the New Year but we shall see. I put it down last week and I haven’t picked that baby up again. Ahhh! I’ll get on it and I’ll provide updates.

Hope you enjoy the list!

 

I’m very excited!!!!

Hello World Citizens!

I’m setting up shop all around the internet. I know its been ages since I’ve actively been writing. Now there is a new fire of inspiration under my feet and I must get moving. I’m so excited to debut a few new stories next week and let you know what I will be working on. On May 16th the site will officially be available. I’ll blog, I’ll joke, I’ll give info and what not. It’s a very free-flowing environment over here in the creative land of Los Angeles. I’m back! Next week I’ll cover my favorite authors, their books, and how they influenced me over time. Can’t wait to chat with you all!
