Ask Me Anything

I know a lot of random information, and I really love researching and learning more random information. I figured I could put all this to good use. So I’ve introduced an advice column—just in case you wanted opinions from some random person on the internet and Reddit wasn’t cutting it. Ask me anything—advice on a relationship problem, how to make your own jewelry, what book you should read next, how to properly use punctuation, whether the moon is made of cheese, etc. The world is your oyster, and I want nothing more than to help you harvest the pearl. So ask away! Continue reading “Ask Me Anything”

5 Things to Blog About When You’re Not Feeling It

5 Things to Blog About When You're Not Feeling It.png

As I sat and pondered and wondered and stressed about what I should blog about—because it’s been weeks since I actually had a blog post that wasn’t part of Writers Weekend—I was coming up with nothing but frustration. I reached out to friends, I asked on social media, I went through my ever changing list of things that I want to write about someday, and still nothing. So, like a runner with a broken toe, I decided to write through the pain. Make it work for me. Take that, writer’s block. Continue reading “5 Things to Blog About When You’re Not Feeling It”

A List of All the Things That Have Been Annoying Me Lately

The fact that Pinterest makes it very easy to sign up for a business account and encourages you to do it but doesn’t tell you anywhere that in order to switch back to a personal account, you have to contact their help desk.

People on Reddit who downvote things to make their posts look better. For that matter, Reddit itself. Continue reading “A List of All the Things That Have Been Annoying Me Lately”

Writers Weekend: Quirky Characters

Writers Weekend Banner

This writers weekend is all about characters. Specifically, their quirks and habits. Since I couldn’t pick just one character to focus on, I’m stealing the idea Kelly @ A Pre-Prosed Adventure had, and hosting an interview with six of my main characters in my fantasy novel. Meet Atlas, Eliza, Aryn, Tali, Twyla, and Jess. Continue reading “Writers Weekend: Quirky Characters”

Movie Review: The Kissing Booth

Image result for the kissing boothIt’s so new I couldn’t even find a decent res movie poster.

The other night, I was deeply in need of a fluffy, cute, indie movie that I knew wouldn’t make me sad or angry or feel anything but a cheesy sense of awwww. So, when Netflix threw The Kissing Booth at me as their giant, annoying advertisement, I watched it.

Spoilers. Continue reading “Movie Review: The Kissing Booth”

How to Write an Engaging Email

How to Write an Engaging Email (1).png

How many emails have you deleted without reading recently?

If you’re anything like me, the answer is so, so many. Everybody seems to want your email these days, from apps to stores to coworkers to that annoying person sending out reminders for events at your local library/university/rec center. It’s obnoxious, and our inboxes are constantly filled with mindless trash.

But what if you’re in charge of sending out those email reminders? You’re not a marketing expert and you don’t want to be. You just want to get people to come to your event. I’ve been there. I’ve got you. Continue reading “How to Write an Engaging Email”
