I just got my first TMIs asked!!
I’m very excited about this! But dearest Anon… This Tumblr isn’t the place for those answers. Sorry, I like posting personal stuff along with all these book posts, but that’s a bit too personal. On the other hand, if anybody wants to ask me something, anything!, un-Anon, I’ll answer back completely honestly!
For all my life I have been a very bad (half)...
You see, I can understand a bit of Spanish, but I can’t speak it. At all. But that is going to change starting tonight! I’m installing Rosetta Stone v3 and I have the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd levels of Spanish for it. I think it’ll be worth what it took to get it. But I feel it’s my duty to learn Spanish now. I mean, my mother’s family is Cuban, my first boyfriend was...
Getting my car today!
I’m going to go do the notary and pick it up in an hour or so.
So my feedback so far has been great, made a few edits here and there as I talk to people about my excerpt. If you haven’t read it, I’d love for you to go read it here. I’ll prolly go ahead and make a Tumblr just for my writing so I can keep focused on my books here and not spam people’s dashboards with giant text posts.
OK! Here's the excerpt from the first of a series...
Please tell me what you think. None of my Facebook friends are really willing to give corrections and criticisms to my writing but I’d really like to get some. I know I’m at a very amateur level right now. ——- The following is an excerpt from a volume of books referred to solely as The Records. This specific collection of recovered volumes is further named The Records of...
Opening the book, I inhaled. The smell of old books, so sharp, so dry you can...– — Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale (via trua) This is my favourite book. I love it so much; you honestly can’t even know. I’m basing my end of year art pieces on it. (via clandestinedreamer)
So I'm going to start writing again.
After this semester and being told I’m a gifted writer (and having the top scores in my English class didn’t hurt either), and talking with a few close adults about my future plans, I may end up with an English minor. And then… I’ve had this story building in my head. For over three years now I’ve been working on this single, but huge, story. The only problem is,...
We are made of books, the ink on these pages is the blood in these hearts.– Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)
Lost a follower after my Bookfession reblog spam.
Do I look like I care? You’re all lucky I didn’t go and reblog the entirety of it altogether. If my obsession with books bothers you, go away.
OH! This is exciting!
So one of my best friend’s since I was 12 is getting married. She’s moving to Iowa or Missouri or something. I dunno. ANYWAY. Her dad, my old pastor, is selling her car. A ‘92 Oldsmobile Cutlass. The gas gauge doesn’t work, nor does the a/c, and it has 110k miles on it… But it’s $500. And my pastor of 9 years isn’t going to purposefully rip me off like...
