THE FORGETTING My muse could probably calm down now. She's starting to make me jumpy. I've been in a poetic writing frenzy for the past several nights now. #poetry #originalpoetry #amwriting #writersoflitsy

P.S. I knew Lord Byron before my favorite, Keats. By Byron my favorite poem is WHEN WE TWO PARTED.

CrowCAH Keep up the great writing! 4mo

P.S. I chose the Poetic Underground because Erin Hanson is my favorite infamous poet I've found online. Almost all her poems can be read on anh popular blogs like Pinterest or directly from her website.

Working through all my story ideas trying to find something I want to work on for the next few years. It has to matter, I really have to love the story, it has to mean more to me than anything. I don't know if this is it, but let's see.

Started Throne of Galss by Sarah J. Maas today. My first read by her. Her writing is so smooth I'm already more than halfway through the book here at work!

I haven't finished a series in a long time. Hopefully the story of this assassin has cured that. #amreading #ThroneofGlass

I've been reading very heavy, dense fantasy stiff lately and I needed something easier. #amreading #classic scored a free kindle AND Audio copy! I do own the physical, I have been kind of switicng between all of them depending.

@shadowspeak17 Roped me into reading Seveneves a few days before the start of #NaNoWriMo... Its great so far, but I doubt I'll be able to finish it in time.

shadowspeak17 I just realized you‘re reading two books in a row that have giant eyeballs on the cover... I know that‘s random. Don‘t judge me. 😂❤️ 14mo
EstelaV Hahah it's a good theme... actually seveneves is answering a question that popped up when I was reading 172 Hours On the Moon... the book barely touched on "blowing up" the moon... it was one line and then never addressed again. That book did that alot had a lot of smaller great ideas it didnt do anything with.... and I was like what if the moon did explode how does that affect tides and long term earth living... well seveneves is on one scenario! 14mo

My reread of #CharlieBone was cut short because I got my hands on this beauty. AND THIS IS NOT A REREAD!

Schwab is one of my favorites. A writer of fantasy both in Adult and Young Adult. Her writing is about Monsters, humanity, monsters with humanity, humanity harboring monsters, mayhem, power, and everythign inbetween surrounding the macabre all written with perfect clarity making you feel all the feels.

Book 2 #Vengeful comes out 11/25!

With a few failed attempts at reading something new I've decided to keep with my trend this year and re read another book.

#CharlieBone was one of my favorites when I was a kid and I never got the chance to finish the series. As I start this re read I'm rewarding myself with brand new hardcovers...

#TheChildrenoftheRedKing has been compared to Harry Potter, but dont think of it that way...Charlie is a genius all his own.

I still have some sort of reading block. Everything ive read this year has been a reread. I determined to get over it.. I going to try another. This has been on my shelf since its launch. If you're a fan of the show #Timeless you might find this just as interesting.

PMy notes were turned into a manuscript, my manuscript is being turned into notes, my notes into an outline, and then my outline into a 2nd draft. #amwriting #WritersofLitsy #writingishard #BoundbyInk

P.S. I am in the note taking phase--->notes to outline I'm searching for a beginning!

I only need to have 100pgs edited each month to reach my goal of having this phase completed by October. #NaNoWriMo2018 I'll be ready for you!

To force myself out of my reading slump I'm continuing my reread of #HarryPotter Honestly though everything about the story just makes me sad now. Knowing how everything plays out, being able to see each "what if" and "if only" branches Harry's life could have taken, and all the small details that were missed on the first reading. But its been wonderful and I've actually been reading! Yay
