Thursday Fun: English teachers vs. Authors

I saw this while scrolling through Pinterest today and thought you all would appreciate it.  (I also just want to celebrate how nice it is being out of college for the summer!)  I think this is so true!

My Guest Post on Julia's Blog

Hey everybody!  I didn't mean to go so long without posting.  I woke up today and realized I hadn't written anything on my blog in over a week!  I've been studying and practicing hard lately.  Anyway, my guest post on my friend Julia's blog is now live! 

You can click HERE to read it.

Please give your opinions and comments on it.  I'd love to hear what you all think!

Thursday Fun: The Aftershock

A friend of mine showed me this video a few weeks ago and I just thought of it again this morning.
If you are a fan of any book/movie/TV show, you will understand The Aftershock and relate to this video.


Watch "THE AFTERSHOCK" on YouTube

Remember to smile! :)

Monday Musings: I'm a Guest Poster!

Hello everybody!

I am writing a guest post for my friend Julia the Writer Girl!  If you haven't heard of her before, please go check out her blog!  She has been much more consistent with writing over the years than I have been.  She has written lots of material and is also in the process of trying to get published.  She is a really sweet girl and gives excellent perspective and advice about writing and the publishing process.

Thursday Fun: Dream Journals

My very first Thursday Fun post is devoted to a GREAT writing tip that I got from some random, hokey article on dream interpretation that a friend showed me for giggles a few weeks ago.  I've lost the link, but basically the article suggested using a dream journal to record your dreams and use them to "unlock the messages to yourself from your own subconscious!" or some cheesy line like that. 

But it gave me a great writing tip.

Summer Goals & New Blog Schedule

Since I'm going to have the whole summer to get back into the swing of writing regularly, and since I have a lot of reading I want to get done, I've decided I should probably set up a schedule for this blog.  Maybe if I have to report to you all frequently, that will help me stay on track with my writing goals, even when I get back to college in the fall!

So, here's how it's gonna go:

My First Year at College in a Nutshell

Smoores here. :) Whaddaya know - I'm still alive!  Bet you never thought I'd be back here... but I like to surprise people.

I just completed my first year away from home at college and I'm now back home for the summer.  My summer schedule consists of taking an Anatomy & Physiology class at a community college, taking lessons on flute, harp and piano, and working part-time at my parents' chiropractic office.  This is considerably more relaxed than my schedule at school, and I realized it's been almost a year since my last post (gasp! time really does fly) so I'm back to blogging.  

I'm sure you're wondering what I was doing for the past year, so I'll give you the run-down, as briefly as I possibly can.
